How cool is it that we live in a day and age where anyone and everyone can be a photographer? No longer do you need to spend a ton of money to take amazing photos – all you need is a smart phone and a little know-how! Since beautiful photos are such a huge part of social media these days, we put together a list of our favorite photo editing tools from a couple different categories. Read away and go take the perfect picture!
Best Filters & Effects: VSCO Cam (Free) – If you’ve noticed all the photos on Instagram with #VSCO or #VSCOCam in the caption, it’s for good reason. VSCO is our top pick for creating the perfect picture on your phone. It’s a little bit hipster, but that’s why we love it so much. There is a ton of flexibility in the edits you can make and the filters are lovely – C1 is a personal favorite!
Best Overall Editing: Snapseed (Free) – If you want to get into the nitty-gritty of photo editing, Snapseed is great for that. It has the ability to edit select parts of the photo, which is a necessity when lightening a picture without overexposing the whole thing. And it’s super user-friendly!
Best Graphics & Creativity: Over ($3.99) – When you want to make your photo more like a work of art, Over has everything you need. From gorgeous fonts to cute graphics, Over is our top pick for inspiring creativity. Just take a look at some of the featured photos from their website below. Heart eye emoji for sure!
Don’t want to deal with downloading an extra app to edit? The editing tools that come built into your iPhone Photos app have a surprising amount of options and flexibility. And with all of Instagram’s recent updates, they’ve really stepped up their in-app editing game.
