THE SECRET IS OUT! (5 must-have photo editing apps!)

I've been meaning to write this post for a long time, but to be honest, I've been stingy- because I didn't want to give up my Instagram-Photo-Editing Secrets!
But, enough of you asked for them- so I figured, what the heck? Let's do this!
Here are the 5 different apps I use to edit photos for Instagram (or just for other uses) at any given time:
must-have photo editing apps!
A Beautiful Mess App: Anytime I want to add cutesy text, borders, or other fun overlays on my photos! There are a few limited filters on this app too- but none that I totally love. It's really best for adding quotes, words, names, or drawings in a range of colors to your favorite photos!

Whitagram: You know when you see someone's Instagram feed that is all rectangles with white borders- rather than the usual Instagram square? They're probably using Whitagram. This free app allows you to keep the true scale of your image, but size down for Instagram use- sometimes you just can't crop your pictures into a square, they're just too perfect the way they are!

AfterLight App: MMMMMkay. Instagram filters ain't got nothin' on this app. It has a bajillion different filters, as well as overlays, vignettes, etc. My favorite part is that you can either change the overlay/borders to a different color other than white- or fade it, so you can still see some of the original image behind it (see the "B" image below)

Waterlogue: Looking to make your photos into art in one quick button press? Then Waterlogue is the app for you- making all images look like they're painted brushstrokes- this app makes all images print-worthy. Hint- High contrast images work best here!

PhotoToaster:  This app is legit better than the photo editing software that came with my computer. It's not about frilly filters and words- it's just there to make your pictures be enhanced, and the best they can be. It takes a few times using it to really master it, but once you do, you can adjust saturation, white balance, tint, exposure, and so much more. It's my #1 go-to!

So there you have it- My 5 go-to photo editing apps!

  3. Oooh, you gotta get VSCO Cam. It's seriously the best editing app on the market. I just did a review of it earlier this week! But I do love whiteagram!

    1. Ooh! I actually do have VSCO cam! that's how i shoot most of my pictures to begin with- I should have included that in here!

    2. Maybe you didn't even have to, everybody knows, loves and uses VSCO ;) Althought there's much more than just editing apps, you know:) Especially if it's about a business, many leave their phones behind and shoot with DSLRs, so smartphone editing is not so important. In this case some third-party management apps would be useful, like iconosquare to know your statistics, or to deal with unfollowers, or curalate to monetize the account... I'd love to read a post about this kind of apps from you:)

  4. Thanks for sharing this post !! List of apps provided by you are incredible. Lets Try Spiffy- best photo editing app for iPhone & Android.

  5. Photoshop is the best option for creating the graphic features in the pictures.Because it have more features and aspects for it.
