I may have a slight obsession with photo editing apps, ok it’s pretty major. My friend asked me to post about which ones I used but…well there are just too many.
But in the interest of keeping it brief I thought I would give you my gun-to-my-head-if-i-had-to-choose-five-short-list.
Instagram, obviously. I’m addicted, you just have to look at my sidebar to see I am probably guilty of over-posting. It’s not just my favourite photo editing app, it’s my favourite social networking platform. I love the simple effects, the ease of use and the sharing capabilities. It’s perfection. If you are not on to it yet, you still have time to save yourself. Basically you have a profile, follow people, they follow you and everyone makes their pics look awesome with a bunch of quick vintage style filters and boarders. It’s a great way to share pics without being a Facebook feed hogger, it is also another way to stalk your favourite celeb or search for trends through a hashtag system.
Big Lens. This is a really dense photo editor, the options are endless. I use this mostly to create the focused up front and blurry out back look but the filters, lenses and frames are also fantastic and there are heaps of them. You can add light leaks, vingnetts, change the aperture, mold the sun spots into lots of great shapes including hearts and snowflakes, brighten, crop, blah blah blah. It is the shiz-nit.
Phonto. This is by far my favourite app for applying text to a picture. There are a heap of fonts plus good options for angle, colour and transparency. The only downside of the app is that you have to write one line at a time but it’s still good.
Pic Frame. There are a lot of apps that you can make photo collages with but I tend to use Pic Frame. I just find it easy as you can lock and unlock the frame. This just means that you can move the boarders around then lock them into place before you size the pictures. It’s great as in-phone camera editing can be pretty fiddly and this just helps you control everything better. If I’m making a collage like below I always use Pic Frame first, then apply the filter, then the text. This way all the pictures have matching filters and the text does not get discoloured.

Square ready. This app simply makes your rectangular pictures square images so you can share to Instagram without losing the sides of them. There are a few apps that do this but I like Square Ready because you can choose what background colour you want to use. It also can send your pic straight to the Instagram app when you’re done, it’s quick, easy and you don’t end up clogging your camera roll. If I want to share a picture on Instagram that isn’t square I like to edit it with this first in Big Lens then send it to Square Ready and then Instagram. If you use Square Ready then add a filter in Instagram the whole square image gets coloured instead of just the actual photo.
Camera360 is one I use all the time. and its free!
Ohhh I haven’t tried that one out

These articles and blogs are genuinely sufficiency for me for a day.
I am so glad that someone is finally covering the difference between lenses and applications for photography. Instagram makes everything so much better. I can’t tell you how many times I have come across a person with a very popular instagram and doesn’t know how to operate a real camera.
Thank you for covering this topic. I really enjoyed the read

Brilliantness Babs! I’ve only used the Instagram in-app filters and depth-of-field tools, so this is a whole new world for me. I want to find out about that cute heart bokeh app too (like Rhianna). Steph x
Thanks Steph, Lens Light is a great one for love hearts and other shapes too.

There are a few applications that do this but I like Rectangle Prepared because you can select what qualifications color you want to use. It also can deliver your pic directly to the Instagram app when you’re done, it’s fast, simple and you don’t end up blocking your photographic camera move.
I have taken plenty of photo shots in superbowl and edited them with plethora of built in effects, cool text messages and share with friends on social media with photo splash Fx. Indeed this is awesome app

I do have some questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be simply me or does it look like a few of these responses appear like they are written by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are posting on other online sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
