Little Features Make Great iPad Apps: Save to Clipboard in FX Photo Studio HD

FXPhotoStudioSavetoClipboard

Great iPad apps generally have a great user interface and a number of impressive major features. They also often have clever little features that make them a joy to use. Here’s an example of one of these: the ability to save to the Clipboard in the FX Photo Studio HD app.

I did a review of  FX Photo Studio HD for iPad a couple months ago, and love the app. I use it often and it has become my go-to app for image editing and photo effects, more so than any desktop app.

A little but great feature I have only recently noticed is the app’s Save options. You can save a modified image to the Camera Roll, to the Documents folder, or to the Clipboard. Saving to the clipboard is a super handy option because it lets me move a modified / corrected image very quickly (via the excellent Pastebot app) to my Mac, for use in an article or similar. And of course once the image is in the clipboard, you can paste it into anywhere that is useful to you – a Keynote presentation, a Pages document, an email, and so on.

What are some of your favorite little features in your favorite iPad apps?

First things first, if any of you would like to argue that this is not the cutest puppy in the world I’m happy to debate that with you at great length. That’s not the purpose of this short post though – which is to recommend the excellent FX Photo Studio HD app.

I’m not going to even attempt a review on this one because I’m just not adept enough at using photo effects apps in general to do it justice. What I can say though is that even with my clumsy, very amateur touch with these sort of apps, FX Photo Studio lets me create (what I think are) some lovely images from existing photos. Like the one above that took just one tap to render the ‘Vintage’ effect onto my photo.
