Add colour or simply switch faces

Apple's iPhone 4S benefits from an 8Mp camera and the previous versions of Apple's smartphone have also come with decent photography equipment, which means using your smartphone to capture pictures has become the norm. But once you've taken plenty of shots, why not have some fun with them? There are hundreds of apps that allow you add unusual features to your photos from adding colour to one specific area or allowing you to switch faces in an image. Here's five of our favourite free iPhone apps for adding unusual features to your photos.
