Cropulator for iPhone and iPod Touch
Windows Gobo Selection Screen

A little nip here, a little tuck there. Cropulator allows for quick cropping and rotating of images using simple, but elegant tools.

Get rid of unwanted image areas by tapping and dragging while either maintaining the aspect ratio or not. Ever take a crooked photo? Not a problem. Just draw a line along a horizontal or vertical edge in Straighten mode and voila, the image automatically straightens. But wait, it gets better. If the crop rectangle has not been adjusted, rotating will automatically crop the image. How cool is that?
