And the integration of editing software for mobile imaging makes the camera in a smartphone to become a more enjoyable and interesting one. Shooting a shot, and having access to a variety of accounts like Facebook, Twitter and Flickr gives a mobile imaging photographer a worldwide platform where he can show his work of art or just his snap shots.
