Before levels editing

Photogene's tools are along the left side of the phone when editing. Advanced tool options are displayed at the bottom when a tool is selected. This screenshot was taken before any editing was done to the photo.

After levels editing

This screenshot was taken after the photo levels were edited manually. The histogram and automatic-levels button is at the bottom of the screen. Photogene's developer intends to add individual histograms for red, green, and blue in version 2.0.

Night vision

You, too, can see in the dark! Not really, but with the night vision feature, you can appear to take photos in the dark.

Bubbles and annotations

It's a snap (well, more of a touch) to add speech boxes and annotations to images.

Cropping tool

You can crop photos with Photogene: just manually select the region you'd like to crop to or constrain the image with preset ratios, like 1:1, 3:4, 4:3, and 3:2.
