Photogene2: On Sale Now!

photogene2 for iPhonePhotogene2 is the updated version of the classic iPhone photo editor. Photogene2 has been completely retooled and is the ultimate tool for handling your iPhone photos. It’s a full featured photo editor: crop, straighten, color adjustments (including histogram and curves), sharpen and denoise, retouch tools (dodge/burn, heal, localized effects and more). This new version puts it on par with Filterstorm and PhotoForge2. Photogene2 has an impressive, well-rounded set of features.

This powerful image editor for iPhone is on sale now for a limited time for only $0.99. That’s a savings of $1.00 off the regular price.

Current App Store ratings are averaging an impressive 4-1/2 stars for Photogene2 and after using it for a few weeks, I think those ratings are accurate and deserved.

Where the original Photogene was showing its age, this new version is fast, full featured, and has a great, newly revised interface. If you are currently using an all-in-one camera app (such as Camera+ or King Camera) or are otherwise not using one of the high-end iOS image editors, this is a great addition to your iPhoneography camera bag. Grab it now while the price is low.

Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.2 or later. It’ll run on an iPad, but this version is not a Universal app and doesn’t fully take advantage of the larger screen real estate of the iPad.

    Marty, if you've already got Iris, photoforge2, snapseed, filterstorm and many more too numerous to mention… is there really anything this app does any better than these?

      Hi, Skip,

      It's pretty cool. It's got a few unique features. The healing feature is similar to Photoshop's Patch Tool. If that's not really critical for you, then if you've got Filterstorm or PhotoForge2, you probably won't miss anything there. On the other hand (this isn't for you, Skip), for readers who are using apps like PicTools, Luminance, or PhotoToaster but who want to do more, Photogene2 is definitely worth a look.

      I still prefer Filterstorm.

        Does the healing feature work any different than the cloning in filterstorm? Or, does it work more like a content aware brush?

        • lifeinlofiblog

          It's not a clone tool. It's content-aware, but more like the older CS3/CS4 content aware tools, not the spoony new CS5 tool. It's not a brush, it's more like the old Healing Patch Tool in CS4, where you grab an area and it kind of melds them together. It's not perfect. It does a good job cleaning up small imperfections and anything that wouldn't cause the Patch Tool to choke in Photoshop.

            Oh, ok. I get it. Thanks for the clarification. I liked what I saw in their demo and the interface, but I didn't see much function that I didn't already have. I know I slammed the photoforge2 folks for not simply updating the first version, but I've actually found that app very useful too and glad I bought it again.

            I almost never use the original photogene anymore. I think I'll just wait to see what they do for their iPad version. Thanks!
