Turn an image into a comiclike panel

Halftone turns your photographs into captioned comics with a distinctive worn-paper style.

Halftone turns your photographs into captioned comics with a distinctive worn-paper style. Start by snapping a new photo with your iPhone camera or by selecting an image from your photo library. From there, you can use the buttons on the bottom of the interface to select from 27 different paper styles to give your final product that heavily dogeared comic look. You also can add customizable speech balloons and choose from a few different layouts, but we think there should be more layout options--especially multipane formats. For a little more excitement, you can pick from 24 exclamation balloons (Arrrgh! BLAM!) and random designs, and you can select a color for each.

Halftone creates fun comic booklike images for your photos, but we can't help but think it could have done more. Though the results are solid for single-image projects, it could be even better if you could build three-across comic strips or perhaps a full-page comic.

Even though Halftone leaves us with a few things on our wish list, it does a great job of making cool-looking comiclike pictures with your images. Sending directly to Twitter or Facebook will probably be an appealing option to many users as well. If you want to add fun captions and graphics to your photos and send them to your friends, Halftone is a well-made app for the job.
