myPhotoBooth is a fun photography application that allows you to create booth-style photos that you can edit, save, and send to friends. myPhotoBooth, developed by Purple Snowcone, allows the user to compile their own photos into photo strips or squares. The user can then incorporate color editing to create picture sets reminiscent of Andy Warhol’s artwork.
The main menu of myPhotoBooth allows the user to create a new photo strip or change a saved one. A photo strip or cube consists of 4 photos of your choice: you can either choose these photos from your photo library or you can take photos with your iPhone and use these. You can first center your photo before placing it in the photo strip. Once your photos are in place, you can select the Tools icon which gives you the choice of black or white photo frames, and the strip or cube arrangement for your photos.
The Edit feature allows you to Copy, Paste, and Swap photos to rearrange them within the strip or cube however you like. Within the Edit feature, the F/X icon brings in color options for each separate photo. You can choose from 2 preset options (black and white, and vintage), or you can customize the effects yourself by choosing your own colors, saturation, and blend type for each photo. Once your photo strip or cube is perfected, myPhotoBooth will automatically save this photo strip within the app. You also have the option of saving your photo strips to your iPhone’s photo library, or sharing them with friends through e-mail, Facebook, or Twitter.
myPhotoBooth does take a little practice to become accustomed to the features. I recommend reading through the instructions before you first use the app. The instructions for using myPhotoBooth are thorough, and they are available at every stage of the app via the little question-mark icon.
myPhotoBooth is fun to use and is great for anyone who loves experimenting with their photos. Currently though, editing is limited just to color variations. It would be nice to see some future updates bring additional features that expand myPhotoBooth’s capabilities as a photo-modification app.
myPhotoBooth requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch
