    I started to get into photography, and I was wondering if anyone uses any good photo editors? Basics, nothing too fancy just easy to edit a little bit.

    Well, one suggestion (and I sure that you will get plenty more!) - :)

    I use Photogene (check HERE) which does the basics of photo editing - not sure what your needs are, but a cheap purchase at the Apple App store - good luck in your choice(s), and please post back here if you've used a number of different apps - may help others to choose? :D

    I'll definitely check it out tonight. An app I just got is "photo+folder hd" your able to make folders and sort out your photos. It's pretty good. But I wish there was an option to like upload photos from the app. Like if your uploading photos to a website, you can't upload them from your folders in the app, only from the original photos app. Oh well, still pretty good.

    The one I use is PhotoPad by ZAGG. I use it primarily for cropping, which it does well.

    Photogene
    has an 'export' function that allows numerous options of sending your images elsewhere, e.g. in an e-mail or to Dropbox. I use this app to mainly crop & resize my images rather than for 'organizing' the photos on my iPad.

    Photo-Sort is another app that I purchased that is mainly for organizing photos - check HERE, if interested. I've not used this program much but a few negative comments can be found in the link; just a couple of options for transferring images, including in an e-mail.

    Concerning uploading images to websites, I'm still searching for an easier method - usually when one wants to put an image in a forum message, pasting its URL between the HTML image codes is the usual process - I use SmugMug as my online imaging sharing site (there is an app for easy uploading); once the images are there, I can copy and paste their URLs elsewhere - there are a number of threads/posts on this topic if you care to search - good luck! :)

    What do you mean by 'edit a little bit'?
    There are various editors available and some excel in specific areas so knowing what you are likely to be doing will help.
    Photogene is definitely a recommended product but if you are confortable with editors in general then Filterstorm is a great tool as you have a lot of control over the edits you do even though it is not quite as feature rich as Photogene at this time. It will also let you upload images to a small selection of places.

    Photoforge2 is fantastic! Works with layers, lost of effects, and can even tweak curves, levels etc...

    Photo Forge 2 is a great app, one of my favourites but for true pixel level editing it is a bit compromised - it focuses more on filters although the layer support is a welcome addition.
