You'll find plenty of great image-editing tools in the App Store. But here are seven of our favorites aimed at iPhone users.

Five low- or no-cost iPhone image editors

The App Store is loaded with a number of great third-party apps to help you make the most of your mobile photos. And many of these filters will cost you very little -- or nothing at all. Jeff Phillips looks at five free (or nearly free) image editors.

Stop motion animation package is fun at first but frustrating as you try to go beyond the basics.
