The iPhone has many great features, but its camera quality isn’t one of them. However, Photogene for the iPhone and iPod Touch is an application that can give photos a little sparkle.

Photogene is an image manipulation tool that lets users crop images, correct color distribution, sharpen, rotate, and mirror images, as well as add special effects. (To view more Photogene features, check out our slide show.)

Apple didn’t include image-editing features in its iPhone photo viewer software, so iPhone owners have had to wait for a third party to provide them; Picoli is an alternative. Photogene fills this void by giving people on-the-fly editing capabilities of images before they are copied to a computer. Many iPhone users are always connected to a high-speed data network, such as 3G or Wi-Fi, and upload their images directly from the phone to Web sites or social networks. Now those photos can be enhanced before being viewed by others.
