Photography

This can be used to rotate the image for an interesting effect, or more commonly to correct the image if it is at a slight angle.
If your photo is too bright or dark, you can adjust the brightness in order to get a well-balanced image.
Adjusting the contrast affects the difference between light and dark areas of the image. You can fine tune it to meet your needs, such as increasing the contrast to make your subject stand out more.
You can take photos within the app. This allows you to do everything from capturing the image to editing all within one app, instead of having to import an image taken with another camera app.
Saturation refers to the intensity of colors. It is measured on a scale ranging from 0% (black and white) to 100% (pure colors) at a constant level of brightness. Images with high levels of saturation have vivid colors, while unsaturated images appear greyish.
With manual white balance you can choose the most accurate setting and avoid the green, blue or red hue which can occur in auto mode. You can also change the setting for artistic effect.

Effects

Filters allow you to apply effects to your image with one touch, usually with a range of effects such as retro films or sketches.
Image sharpening tools emphasize the edges within an image. This can be applied to a blurred image to make it appear sharper and more detailed.
Tilt shift is a technique which can be used to achieve the “diorama” effect, whereby you can make normal images look as if they were taken of small models. It works by applying a blur to parts of the image which simulates a shallower depth of field, even on objects far away.
When taking a picture with the app, you can preview your next photo with the filter already applied. This means you can choose a filter that compliments the scene before you capture the image, rather than applying it later.
