Apple is bringing iPhoto to the iPad. That’s right, for some reason Apple already offered a $4.99 version if iMovie which let you edit videos on the iPad, but the company is just now getting around to releasing a photo editing app.

The iOS version of iPhoto supports digital effects and editing. There’s also a pretty nifty auto-enhance feature which can straighten photos, adjust colors, and make other tweaks automatically.

You can also beam photos from device to device or share photos with Flickr, Twitter, email, and other services.

The mobile version of iPhoto supports a range of touch-based gestures including swiping to flip through albums, and double-tapping on a photo to find all the similar pictures on your device.

Apple says the app supports images up to 19 megapixels, so you can import pictures from a high quality camera. Interestingly, the new iPad camera is only 5MP.
