Smartphones over the years have evolved into tiny computers, that allow you to make the most of your time without having to be on a laptop or desktop. Working in social media, having the ability to take great photos from our phones and posting them in real time, can make for engaging content that resonates with your audience. However, it’s not always easy to get a high quality photo that we want to live on the Internet forever. That’s why we put together this list of four amazing apps that can really take your smartphone photos to the next level.
Our list of the Four Best Photo-Editing Apps:
Filterstorm is as close as you’ll get to editing photos on your desktop. The app can support up to five layers at a time and will let you make adjustments like selecting opacity, brush, gradient, colour range, vignette, and more. You can play with the brightness and contrast as well as temperature, exposure, and saturation – all on your phone! Added bonus: you can crop your photos based on the aspect ratio of your choosing.
You no longer need a computer or adobe suite to use photoshop. The Adobe Photoshop Express app is a free version of everyone’s favorite photo editor and gives you the ability to straighten your photos, apply filters, effects, borders, and much more. While the free version is pretty good, we recommend taking advantage of in-app purchases to really get the most out of this one.
The Pixlr app is a powerhouse, with over 100 effects, 280 overlays, and nearly 100 border options, you’ll be able to customize your photos quickly. Another great feature from Pixlr-O-Matic is that you can take new photos with in app to edit to your liking, you can then shared your work with friends via Facebook or save the high-resolution version right to your phone.
VSCO has become much more than just an app – it’s truly a community for photographers and social media junkies alike to share, comment on, and fall in love with photography. They also offer some of the best filters in the game, and they won’t downgrade photo quality.
