I woke up this morning to the great news that two popular iphoneography apps, Athentech Imaging’s Perfectly Clear and Trey Ratcliff’s 100 Cameras in 1, had finally been updated to support the full resolution photos from the iPhone 4s! (Better late than never!)
We’ll start with 100 Cameras in 1, an app that has been in the App Store for quite some time, that offers 100 different texture and tonal filters that can be added to your photos. The app also allows users to adjust intensity of the filters, and if they wish, layer the filters to create unique effects.
Although 100 Cameras in 1 is not one of my “go-to Apps”, I think I may start using it more since this update, since it will no longer down res my iPhone 4s images.
Here’s some screencaps from the app:

Next, we have Athentech’s Perfectly Clear. Now this has definitely been one of my go-to apps for a long time, and I, like many other iPhoneographers, have been eagerly awaiting this update. There were hints that an update would be in the future for Perfectly Clear after the release of Camera Awesome, which utilizes Perfectly Clear’s algorithms for it’s “Awesomizer” feature (which supports iPhone 4s images).
The Perfectly Clear update was definitely more extensive, here’s a list of what’s been updated (from App Store Description):
- Fixed crashing bug from previous version
- Memory optimization to prevent running low on memory
- Optimized preview for faster loading
- Optimized correction speed by 100%
- Updated save size to accommodate 8MP camera (4s)
- Optimized file size for faster workflow
- Made Tint correction more responsive
- Captures and preserves EXIF data when taking photo through Perfectly Clear
- Captures and preserves location data when taking photo through Perfectly Clear
- Preserves EXIF data when importing image
- Identifies Perfectly Clear corrected image in EXIF data
- Fixed image orientation data
- Improved share abilities with Facebook
- Improved share abilities with Twitter
- Improved share abilities with email
- Increased response from correction sliders
- Fixed unusual behavior of slide-out panel
Overall, I’m a huge fan of Perfectly Clear, and I’m glad that it has finally been updated! While testing, I definitely noticed the speed enhancements and the increased slider responsiveness, which I think are excellent enhancements.
Also, there were no major interface changes to either app, which I’m also a fan of.
