Journalists are often expected to send photos from the field before their stories are filed. This is especially important during breaking news. During big events (like protests, or major police responses), a newsroom’s web team will be putting together photo galleries for big events and they don’t always have time to edit the images. PhotoToaster is a great tool for journalists looking to do a quick edit before emailing the photos to the newsroom. Images can be straightened, cropped, and enhanced. The journalist doesn’t even have to exit the app to send it via email.

  • Save edited images to your photo library, or send them to social networks including Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, Tumblr, and Twitter.
  • You can send your edited image from PhotoToaster directly to your WiFi enabled printer.

    This seems like a great app to have for all around use. I like the way you explained how to make the photo straight. Showing how the adjustments like the brightness was also helpful. Thanks for researching all this..that made it easy.
