Favourite i-phone apps for photo editing

Oct 23, 2014

Hello, my lovelies what an amazingly busy and wonderful week it's been. I can't wait to share more with you in tomorrows "weekly wrap up" post! As for today? I'm chatting about my favourite photo editing apps. I currently have the iphone 5s and tend to upgrade every two years. I love using my iphone for photos, my business and personal life. In fact, I'm probably on it a little too often. Anyone else check their instagram like 20 x a day, oh dear! ;) If you have a few favourites of your own let me know in the comments section, or if you have a question about any of the apps... let me know via the comments or shoot me a quick tweet!



Pic Tap Go // A constant go-to for me! I already use Rad Lab for my blog photos and love using the same filters on my iphone photos as well. The layout is beautiful, intuitive and the app gives you a full size preview of your filters in action, plus layering other effects is a breeze. You can also save your recipes for future use and the app automatically stores your most used filters in a "my style" tab - love it!! Some of my favourite filters include: bright-side, crispity, flare up, sugar rush and fade to grey. For black and white? I love using powder!

VSCO Cam // This was my go-to app prior to discovering Pic Tap Go. I still love using this one though. Their filters give photos an instant editorial/very Kinfolk friendly look and the app has a thriving community for artists and photographers.

Afterlight // I often pull my iphone photos through afterlight for quick tweaks. I love using this app for brightening, sharpening and adding a little colour saturation to my photos. I also love their light leak and texture filters! So, gorgeous. You can see a recent example here!

Over // In a word? Awesome! This app allows you to apply designer like texts, sayings and graphics to your photos. Just check out their instagram feed - you'll be hooked!

ABM // I'm sure most of you already know/use this one. But I love "A Beautiful Mess" and I love their app. Adding doodles is such a fun way to give your photos a personal and whimsical feel... you can see a few of my examples here & here

19 sweet notes:

  1. I've never tried Over, but you have me intrigued! I'll definitely be checking that one out.

  14. I think we might be photo app twins - or we just compare instagram notes too often! Your favourite app list is exactly the same as mine, even down to the order! Too funny. I really don't know what I'd do without Pic Tap Go, so glad I discovered Rad Lab through you, I honestly don't know what I'd do without it.
    xox,
    Cee

  16. I'd like to do more with my Instagram account, dearest Veronika...but I just can't seem to find the time!! And even though I've had my iPhone 4 since March (my previous phone was an "old-fashioned" flip!) I STILL forget that it has a camera!! :D

  18. Ahh this is THE most amazing post EVER! I'm super picky how my instagram photos turn out and so I don't post as often as I'd like to, but you shared so many amazing apps here that I soon won't have an excuse to rely on ;) Also, I know I've run into Rad Lab before but don't really get what it is. Does it work *with* PS?
