Cell phone photography is the fastest growing segment of the Digital Camera market. Today's cell phones have higher megapixels, better lens, and increased storage capacity making them great devices to capture the moment anywhere anytime. Remember... The best camera is the camera you have with you!
Below are some great tips:

Do you have a favorite tip, app, or experience with cell phone photography? Please share in this discussion.
I just came from a presentation at my daughter's school where they took pictures with digital camera's and then emailed them to the printer. It was AMAZING how fast they printed them out to go in picture frames for the event. I just love how technology keeps things moving forward.
Julia, I am so happy you brought up the topic of printing. I have tried the eprint feature on my HP printer using the same method you described (just email the photo to your Internet connected printer). I have also printed directly to my printer when I have access to my network resources. For anyone who needs basic assistance with printing from a cell phone, take a look at the following websites:
"How to Print Pictures from My Phone" http://www.ehow.com/how_8001253_print-pictures-phone.html
"Print and Share Photos from your Mobile Phone" http://www.hp.com/united-states/consumer/digital_photography/print_better_photos/tips/print_camera.html
My district determined a need to block "ePrint" as an option for all printers in the district. Three new printers were just installed with the ePrint option. Another teacher and I tried multiple times to figure out how we could print to the printers. Each time, we realized the ePrint option was blocked. I hope this option is soon opened up ... it would be much more fun to quickly let students print what they've done for class.
I like the Pano Camera app for iOS. This incredible app creates Panoramic images. The app is currently $1.99 and well worth the price.
To have some serious fun with images, I use the Color Effects app for iOS. This free app is a LOT of fun and fairly easy to use. The photo below was done in less than 30 seconds using this app .
Glen, Once you take a panoramic image it's hard to go back to regular images! I feel the same way about HDR images and love using
Linda, I'm a huge "Pan-Fan", I have 11 panorama apps on my iPhone. My favorite is 360. What I really enjoy about taking panorama pictures is that you capture the unintended. When you take a traditional photograph you "frame and stage: the image. A panorama is sort of unrehearsed, if that makes sense.
I've also purchased a couple peripheral devices for my iPhone, that let me take panoramic movies. Amazing, they create movies that you can pan around in. Hard to explain...but if you go to the websites you can see what they're about. http://www.gopano.com/ and http://kogeto.com/dotspots/
I've been enjoying taking pictures on my phone and then editing them using pic monkey.
It is so funny that you mention this site. I was working with the art teacher and we were fussing about the changes with Picasa. We searched and found many folks recommended using picmonkey in place of Picasa. We loved that you did not have to register and it is super easy to use. Have you moved on from Picasa and what are you using to edit your pics?
I want to disclose first:
I just was reading my latest edition of Wired magazine, and they recommend several photo editing apps for iPhones (only)
Now I'm off to look for similar apps for my Android system. And I'll try some of the ones mentioned in other posts above!
I am so excited because we will be doing a photo walk at the Discovery Summer Institute. One of the girls suggested we download some apps before we get there. There are some apps in this post but I like to be overwhelmed. What are your favorite photo apps that should be a must have in Montana?
