I love, love, love to take photos. Most of the time I drag my big ol’ DSLR camera along with me when I go somewhere and I edit those photos in Photoshop. But sometimes, the convenience of being able to bring your phone with you to take pictures just makes so much more sense. It is great to be able to kick things up a notch too with photo editing apps! You can brighten up a dark photo, or add some fun text or filters to give your photo a little flare. So today, I’m sharing the 7 Best Apps for Photo Editing. (I use the following apps on my iPhone, but some may be available on other devices.)
Camera+ by tap tap tap – Camera+ is an amazingly awesome app that allows you to have more control over your camera settings than the regular camera on your phone. It has really good manual mode settings which allows you to take beautiful photos in all sorts of different lighting scenarios. Plus, there are a lot of extra filters and options to help your pictures POP!
Adobe Photoshop Express by Adobe – The Adobe Photoshop Express has many great features, but I think my favorite would have to be the blemish removal tool. I’m not a fan of editing out permanent facial features (see my wrinkles!) or making people skinnier, but this option is perfect for removing that scary, huge pimple that popped up over night or those few crumbs you didn’t notice on the floor before you snapped your photo. (Luckily, I didn’t have any zits at the time of this pic!)
Pic Tap Go by Totally Rad! Inc. – This is my favorite, most used photography app. I love that I can quickly load a photo into Pic Tap Go and apply a few filters or crop in no time at all. Usually, I just brighten and sharpen, since I love my photos to pop with color. However, there are a lot of fun options to choose from (which you can preview before you even apply) if you want to go for a vintage or black and white look as well.
VSCO by Visual Supply Company – I love VSCO because it is so simple and the results are almost always beautiful. The app is super user friendly, with easy to use controls and lovely filters that can subtly accent your photos.
Rhonna Designs by Rhonna Farrer – If you want to add pretty graphics and text to your pictures, Rhonna Designs is definitely the way to go. There are tons of gorgeous font options and designs that can help you create beautiful and unique graphic photos.
Waterlogue by Tinrocket, LLC – Sometimes it’s fun to get a little artistic with your photos and Waterlogue is the perfect way to turn your pictures into art. This app takes your photos and, with the just the click of a button, changes them into beautiful watercolors. This photo started out as white plain flowers outside of our home, but now it looks like it was painted by an artist. So pretty!
Moldiv by JellyBus Inc. – This last app is great if you want to showcase several photos at once in a collage. Moldiv can stitch together a grouping of photos (like a this set from my home tour) and there are tons of combinations to choose from, which is perfect for sharing on social media, i.e. Facebook, Instagram, etc.
I love how using an app to edit photos can give it just that little extra oomph! What are your favorite photo editing apps? Do you use any of these? I would to hear your recommendations in the comments below!
