My Favorite Photo Editing Apps

I often get questions about what photo editing apps I use. I've tried dozens upon dozens, and have deleted most of them. I figured I'd share the ones I still have in my phone. These ones made the cut.

1. Instagram- I'm sure you already knew this. I mean, who doesn't have IG nowadays, besides Craig, because he's too cool for school. (@kristanlynn) It's becoming a huge social media tool for bloggers and even Etsy shops. I rarely use it to edit photo's, but when in a hurry, the valencia filter is my fav.

Usually, I'll take the picture with my the normal camera app and upload into:

2. Afterglow- A must have! It has tons of awesome filters and textures. The app filters are designed in Photoshop, so it's really an amazing app for phone pics! It has a cropping tool, fun borders and allows you to manipulate many things such as saturation, brightness, exposure, highlights, shadows, etc. 

Now I might leave it like that, or if I'm looking for more textures, I'll upload the  saved pic above into:

3. PicsPlay Pro- Awesome texture! It's the best bokeh effect app I've found (I've downloaded and paid for atleast a dozen)!

AND, we all know I like to over edit my photo's. HAH. So 9 times outta 10, I'll upload the above photo into:

4. LensLight- which has the best light leaks for tweaking images and adding depth.

If I want to collage images I use:

5. PicFrame- which has over 60 collage templates to choose from. I also use it to add text to my photo's.


  1. Thanks for the information! =] I'll have to check these out.

  2. Thank you I have been wanting some new apps.

  3. I wasn't able to find Afterglow or Lens Light in the Google Play store (Android phone) but I did find all of the rest. Thanks!

  4. CEI is an online based clipping path and image masking service provider that provides high quality photoshop clipping path service at affordable rate.

  7. I think that what you posted was very logical. But, think about this, what if you were to create a awesome title? I ain’t suggesting your content is not solid, however what if you added a title that makes people want more? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news titles to grab viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab people interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier. clipping path
