With over 3,000 iPhone photography apps to choose from, you might ask which ones are vital. The following two iPhone apps are both useful and easy to use and can help you get just the photo you want.

Camera Pro: Live Histogram

Understanding a histogram can help you capture the shot you want. This iPhone app gives you a live histogram while you’re composing your photo! This can be a tremendous assist in obtaining good exposure of your photo.

Notice the histogram in the upper-left corner. The Select Grid Type button lets you choose from three types of guide or choose no guide. It also lets you select Single mode (one photo each time you tap the Shutter button) or Continuous mode (the app takes three photos one after the other).



Ever been out hiking or driving and suddenly you see a wondrous view that you want to capture — but the scene won’t fit into one photograph! The AutoStitch iPhone app lets you take overlapping individual photos of the scene and present them to the app in any order; AutoStitch then puts the panorama together correctly. With this app, as long as you take overlapping photos, you can make the panorama at a later time.
