8 Great Photo-Editing Apps

291436065_930b495a50

It used to be that we could all just enjoy a sunset without taking a hundred pictures of it. But now not only do we spend 20 minutes snapping pics, we also spend another 20 trying to figure out the best filter to put on that image. That’s why we’ve collected the best apps to make sure your posts get the most likes.

1. Picfx.

Forget about Valencia! This app’s filters will make even the most boring snap of avocado toast look interesting. You can choose from over 100 textures and filters, and importing your photos into the app and sharing on Instagram is a breeze. Available for iOS, $1.99

2. Vscocam.

This app is the most streamlined of all the photo editing apps out there, and probably the only one that can give Instagram a run for its money. Use the filters and effects that come with the free app or purchase more. Vscocam also gives you the option to view and undo your individual edits, plus you can share your works to your Journal and search out other users for inspiration. Free on iOS and Android.

3. Color Splash.

This app is basically a one-trick pony, but what a cool trick it is. Use Color Splash to enhance the color and brightness of one aspect of your photo while keeping the rest of it black and white. For those of us old enough to remember using digital cameras, this feature used to be one of the coolest things about them. Free on Android, $0.99 on iOS. 

4. Touch Retouch.

Think of this app as the brush or lasso tool in Photoshop. Using your finger, you can remove any unwanted items or people from your pictures. It’s not just for removing unwanted stop signs. You can use this app to create photos that look like you’re flying, when really the chair you were standing on was conveniently edited out. $1.99 on Android and iOS.

5. Mextures.

This app is for our more advanced phone photogs. Mextures gives you access to 130 different textures from vintage to grunge. It also gives you the ability to stack as many of them as you want to on the same image, and you can adjust the opacity on each one! This app was designed by photographers so you can bet that your photos will come out looking beautiful. $1.99 on iOS.

6. Retrica.

Ever wondered what a filter would look like before you even take your photo? Retricia comes with the option to preview any of its filters. That, plus the option to create collages in the app, definitely makes it a must-download. Free on iOS and Android

7. Faded.

With Faded you get access to exclusive filters. You also get unprecedented access to adjusting shadows, brightness, shadows, and exposure. You can even save your edits and turn them into filters to make editing your photos easy as 1-2-3. $0.99 on iOS.

8. Snapseed.

If you’re looking for a good no-frills editing app, then this one from Google will definitely sort you out. Use Snapseed to filter, crop, transform, blur or sharpen your photos. Its included filters are definitely enough to make your boring breakfast into an image people will like. Free on Android and iOS
