Is your photo really sharp? Is the focus where you want it to be? Don’t lose good moments with bad photos. Evaluate every pixel of your photo on the go with Photo Quality Check.

Looking for an Instagram viewer for your iPad? Take a look at Retro

Give your photos an analog look with AnalogColor. New filters include the ability to transform your photo into polygons. Another new preset is called Shift and imitates the look of old print when each color was added to the paper using a separate plate. Most of the time these plates didn't align perfectly. The result was slightly overlapping colours in areas and small white gaps. Beautifully retro! 

Free this week at Creative Market: 24 Folded Paper Overlays that you can use to blend with your smartphone photos to give them a folded look using an app like Image Blender. If you prefer to use your computer, you could use these overlays with Photoshop instead. I'll be posting a tutorial on how to blend textures with your smartphone photos later on this week. Keep your eyes peeled.

Would you like to learn to take better photos with your iPhone or SLR? Take a look at the Photography Assignment Generator App, a great tool for learning more about the rules of composition, creative shooting techniques, photographing people, landscape and nature. This app can also help you keep your creative momentum flowing with scavenger hunt assignments that give you ideas of things to find with your camera. There are separate versions for SLR shooters (iPhone and iPad) and iPhoneographers and there's even a free demo version, so you can try before you buy.
