ou don't need to be a professional photographer to take beautiful pictures.
With the right smartphone and an easy-to-use photo editing app, you can make photos look like they were taken by a pro! My favorite apps give you access to top-of-the line tools for free so you can make your photos Instagram-worthy on the go. Here are some of my favorites—which ones will you try out?
Snapseed is one of the most popular mobile photo editing apps. It's a great way to adjust your photos and add some fun elements to them.
- Use Snapseed for adjusting contrast, brightness, color, and saturation in your photos. You can also crop images and use filters that give them a unique look.
- This app has over 10 million downloads on Google Play alone!
PicsArt Photo Studio & Collage
PicsArt is an app that allows you to add text, stickers, frames and special effects to your pictures. You can also use this app to create your own pictures by adding items such as flowers or butterflies. If you want a collage of all your favorite photos, then this is the app for you!
Another cool feature is the fact that there are filters included in PicsArt that will help improve lighting on any photo of yours. Lastly, if borders are what interest you about this app then I would recommend downloading it because it has over 300 different types available for download!
Adobe Photoshop Express
For an app that's free and available for both Android and iOS, Adobe Photoshop Express does a lot of things right. Its interface is simple enough for beginners to navigate but powerful enough for even advanced users to find useful features. You can retouch photos with ease by using tools like the red-eye remover or adding filters that give your image a vintage look—or both!
If you don't have Photoshop on your computer but are still looking for ways to brighten up those dull vacation photos, this might be the app for you.
Camera+ has a variety of features that make it a great app for editing your photos. This free app can be downloaded on both iOS and Android devices and is easy to use.
The features include:
- Taking pictures with the built-in camera, or importing existing photos from your library
- Editing images with tools like red-eye reduction, cropping, filters and frames
- Adding text to images with various fonts and colors (or shapes)
- Adding stickers to photos (think Emojis)
Camera+ also allows you to share your edited images on social media sites like Facebook or Instagram by uploading them directly from the app!
