Summer is all about unwinding, relaxing, having fun and being creative. Be it a party with friends, a family outing, an excursion to a new and exciting place…there’s no better time like the present to take out your phone and take some amazing photographs of the places you see and the people you meet.
And if you’re looking to add an artistic touch to your creations, there are plenty of easy to use phone apps – for iPhone, Android and other operating systems – that let you edit your images without too much hassle.
Here are our favorite image editing apps:
Instagram, recently purchased by Facebook for a billion dollars, is the nr.1 photo editing app and has the greatest number of users. It’s simple to use, has a wide range of filters and operates like a social networking platform. And now that Instagram offers its users the possibility to share videos too, it has become that much more attractive!
If you’re an Instagram fan who loves to take and upload images on a regular basis, why not send one of your creations to #mysummergram…show us how creative you can get!
Even though this app is not too well-known, it’s very easy to use and the outcome is fairly professional. You can add all sorts of effects to enhance your images or simply to make them more fun. You can place filters, change colours, crop, add frames…just give it a go!
We like this app because it’s very complete – aside from the photo editing features such as drawing, cropping, applying frames or filters, PicsArt Studio is also a social network. The great thing about this app is that it lets you apply realtime effects; you can make any editorial changes you want before taking the photo – that way you can see what your final creation would look like before snapping the shot!
If you’re looking to take panoramic images, this app allows you to make some relatively great creations.
For fans of retro photography, this app is a must – Little Photo provides over 70 kinds of filters and tools that let you turn any photo into a vintage masterpiece!
If you love trying out unique apps, you should definitely give WordCam a shot. All you need to do is choose an image and a couple of words or a phrase, and the app will apply colour and shape the words to form the image selected.
This is without a doubt one of the best photo editing apps out there. Camera+ has an extensive range of filters and tools, and even offer users the option to share their creations on Facebook and Twitter…the possibilities are endless!
