    already being discussed in the iPad app forum!

    Photogene is highly recommended.
    other editing apps like photopad, filterstorm and Photoforge are also good.
    effect apps like colorsplash, masque, camerabag and tiffen photo Fx Ultra and FX Photo studio are available too.

    color splash and masque are selective color type apps except that masque has additional effects like blur, darken, lighten etc other than the selective B&W funtion and has layers. so additional control on effects and mask per layer.

    Camerabag is same as the iphone version but with ipad formatted layout, but has a good selection of auto filters with little to modify or control.

    Checkout Adorama TV's ipad photo applications weekly podcast at youtube or itunes.

    yet to try tiffen photo FX ultra and FX photo studio HD.

    Actually there is no "Best" Photo app. You can only do your own research, buy them, play with them and then decide if they fit your need. I have several and use some more then others and some I'm considering getting rid of because I haven't used them much in quite a while.

    Part of the fun for me is this experimenting with the various apps. The asking price even if more than similar apps on the iPhone is not wallet breaking so some mistakes are not going to break the bank. I say this because years ago I had a Windows Mobile device and every program for it seemed to be $39.99 or more. This gives me a different point of view when seeing an app at $3.99 and deciding whether or not I want to buy it to try it.

    I think this thread counts as research? :confused:

    Why don't you help us all out by sharing your experience and some of the pros/cons of each one so we don't all have to waste money buying apps that don't meet our needs?

    Seems like I am not alone here... In my experience of using iPad in last 3 months, I have figured there are tons of crap but nothing which can be counted as a decent portfolio or proof taking solution. I currently use an app named Sortshots. That is not specifically for the portfolios but it has got much more than what you need for these things.. of course you need to use it little differently. They have got EXIF/Metadata support which is great coz syncing is much easier with Lightroom and iPad. I though you might want to take a look at it in case that helps. I think that was 5.99$
