iPhoto for iPad and iPhone Now Available on App Store

Alongside the new iPad, Apple also announced the availability of iPhoto for iPad, an app that was only available to Mac users in the past. Apple has updated all of their apps to take advantage of the new Retina Display in the new iPad, and also released updates to iMovie and GarageBand.

With iPhoto, Apple will now be offering a solution for photo organization on the iPad and editing of those photos. iPhoto for iPad offers a number of photo editing features including auto-enhancements such as straightening photos and fixing contrast. Brush palettes are also included with editing tools, ranging from red-eye removal, lighten, sharpen, soften, and darken. Images of up to 19 megapixels can be edited or viewed on iPhoto.

iPhoto, Apple’s popular photography app, has been completely reimagined for iOS to take full advantage of the Retina display and intuitive Multi-Touch gestures on iPad and iPhone. Simple gestures can be used to select and compare photos side by side and flag your best shots. iPhoto gives you full control over color, exposure and contrast, and you simply touch the parts of the image you want to change. You can enhance pictures by adding beautiful Apple-designed effects with just a tap, or apply adjustments exactly where you want them with fingertip brushes. In addition to posting photos to Facebook, Flickr and Twitter, you can beam photos between your iPhone and iPad; stream photos and slideshows to your Apple TV with AirPlay; and use iCloud to publish photo journals to the web and share your stories with friends and family in a whole new way.

iTunes iPhoto for iPad joins iMovie and GarageBand for iPad in the App Store and is be available for $4.99.
