Newer models of the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch offer two built-in iSight cameras that have tremendously improved HDR capabilities. With a resolution of eight megapixels, panoramic features, and advanced optics, the cameras allow users to capture pictures better than ever before. One camera is located in the back for taking pictures with iPhoto. The other is in the front, which is best used for video calls in FaceTime or taking self-portraits to be uploaded onto social media sites in a flash. To take a picture, the user only has to point the phone in the right direction and tap to shoot.
After taking stunning pictures and videos with the cameras, users are able to edit the pictures in iPhoto. With a variety of options, it is easy to remove stubborn red eye, crop, rotate, or enhance the color of photos. The app eliminates the necessity of connecting the device to a computer and having to edit with pricey software. Once the photos meet approval, the favorite moments can be shared to friends and family on Facebook or Twitter. Also, they can be shared to select individuals only through the Shared Photo Streams feature of iCloud.
