Cropping photos without losing quality

I've tried quite a few apps that have the crop function, including the one that comes with iOS 6, but my screen captures always end up with a crappier quality after being cropped. Does anyone know of a good app that saves the cropped photo with its original quality? thanks

Some of it depends on the output method you're using (via Camera Roll email, via copy-n-paste email, via USB xfer to ImageCapture/iPhoto, via Bump/wifi, etc). Many image editing apps also have customizable settings for resolution, size, etc.

If you can describe the workflow/process that you've been using I may have some suggestions.

thanks for the replies. I did find the perfect app, it's called Snapseed. There is no quality loss at all.

Yep - that's a good one. A couple other apps that offer a decent amount of control over image size, quality, resolution, file type, etc when exporting are:
  • Fotor
  • Camera Awesome
  • Aviary
  • PerfectPhoto
  • PhotoPad
  • LightPhoto
Not all of them are great standalone apps or have the best image editing tools (though the first three are pretty good on their own), but I keep them on hand because each one has a particular export function that can be useful in certain situations.

So a typical workflow might be:
  1. take photo using FastCamera (or iPhone's built-in camera)
  2. edit photo using Aviary
  3. apply filters using SnapSeed, PhotoToaster, Pixlr-o-matic, etc
  4. configure desired export settings using one of the apps listed above
