If you’re trying to understand how to use UIImagePickerController for working with the the camera and the basics of using the Core Image API added with iOS 5 a tutorial has been posted on doing just that in which you’ll create an Instagram style app.

In this tutorial from Mohammad Azam (who created the excellent Map Kit beginners tutorial)  will show you how to take pictures, how to create a photo filter using Core Image, and how to apply the filter to your picture.

Here are is a secroon demonstrating the result from running the tutorial:

You can find the tutorial on Mohammad Azam’s site in two parts: Part 1, Part 2.

The example code can be found on Github here.

A good tutorial for beginners looking to create a photo app.

There’s more to come with the tutorial about social sharing – but since I see so many people searching for how to use the UIImagePickerController on this site I felt it would be great to post the first two parts.
