Can I copyright a photo with effects from an iPhone app?

If I take a picture of odds and ends in my home, for example, some fruit in a basket, then I put special effects on said photo, is this legal to copyright? The program where the special effects comes from is a free iPhone app.

Yes. You took the photo and you did the editing, so you have copyright to the resulting picture. The maker of the iPhone app owns their computer code, etc. but, I believe, not any copyright in the resulting pictures.
