Yesterday I mentioned that one of the things I thought I still couldn’t do on my iPad was to edit RAW photo files. Turns out I was wrong — I hadn’t looked in a while. This morning I came across Filterstorm Neue that has a plethora of photo editing abilities, but importantly can import and edit RAW photo files.

I’ve been playing with it all morning, and while it will take some getting used to it is definitely a very good app.

The biggest issues that I have are:

  1. No native export to anything but camera roll and FTP.
  2. The noise reduction abilities are far behind Photoshop/Lightroom/Aperture.

Other than that it is a pretty solid editor. If you like snapping lots of RAW pictures, but maybe don’t like to drag a computer with you, this is a good option (iPad and iPhone app) as it is touch driven (no sliders) and has decent masking abilities.
