Cool photography editing packages

If you always have your I phone, and love to take photos, you'll love Hipstamatic.
You change the lens, film and flash, use different combinations and produce different often surprising effects. "Digital photography never looked so analog. The Hipstamatic brings back the look, feel, unpredictable beauty, and fun of plastic toy cameras of the past! The Hipstamatic keeps the the quirks of shooting old school but gives you the ability to swap lenses, film, and flash settings all with the swipe of a finger."
Hipstamatic is available for purchase through the app store for $1.99. You get a collection of lenses, flashes and film to combine in as many different ways you like, you then purchase film packs as they become available if you wish.

Below is a pretty boring  subject but Hipstamatic makes it look a lot more appealing!
Heaps of fun!

If you like the cool retro/vintage look of some pics these days, then you'll also love 'Camera Bag'

It works on your desk top computer and you 'run' your images taken on a standard camera, imported into your desktop computer and then run them through Camera Bag.

It is available for PC or Mac and can transfom the simplest of photos into a work of art!
Its a photo editing software that  filters your work allowing you to change the look and feel of an image ans well as add a border/edge
The neat thing is you can have a quick view of how your image would look after changing and adjusting the filters.
I started with the same basic image and chose a style I liked, re-saved the image and hey presto - neat image!
