My name is August Schelin, I’m 15 years old and I’m a “trainee” at Whitelines.
I was given the task of finding cool apps that can be used with whitelines. I’ve tried out a number of useful applications that go hand in hand with Whitelines paper and i found two apps which I especially liked; Photogene and Photoforge. These apps leave you with a crisp and clear picture or text that leaves no trace of the lines, perfect for transferring a handwritten or drawn document to your computer.
This is the original picture I edited (taken with my iPhone).

Editing with Photogene
A simple, yet powerful application that gives you an array of tools to use including, of course, the normal ones like brightness/contrast, levels and saturation. Personally I thought this app was very easy to use and simple but effective.
· Crop/rotate image as you like.
· Edit exposure (see picture)
· Edit contrast (see picture)
· Adjust levels (see picture)

[drupalimg id=1884 title= desc= link=none align=left width=250 height=188]
Conclusion: This app was very affordable, at only 15 SEK or $1.99, had a user-friendly interface and good tools. In a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being totally pointless and 10 being totally awesome I’d rate this app with a strong 8,1.
Editing with Photoforge
Out of all the photography applications on the appstore this is my personal favourite. It features loads of fun and useful tools and on top of having all the usual stuff it has a great many other tools which makes the whole thing that much more interesting. It might not be as easy to use as Photogene, but the results you can achieve are better and it really isn’t that much harder.
· Crop/rotate image
· Reduce noise
· Edit brightness/contrast
· Edit levels/curves (see picture)
· Edit exposure

Conclusion: As I said previously, this is my favourite app for photography and editing even though it was the one of the most expensive ones at 22 SEK or $2.99, and that is for a number of reasons. One of them is the many functions and tools this app gives you; another is the quality of these features and last but not least the user-interface. On I scale of 1 to 10 I award this app with a great 9,5!
