How to Take, Share, and Use Great Photos

The Camera app is on all iOS devices with built-in cameras, including the iPhone, the latest iPod touch, and the recently released, second-generation iPad. The cameras on the latest iOS devices have some very useful capabilities. You can focus on any part of the image, optimize for sub-prime lighting conditions, share the images via e-mail or text messaging, and play slideshows with music to impress your friends. You can even complement your photo-editing skills with third-party apps.
