Our Favorite Apps for Photo Editing

While there’s no doubt that smartphone cameras have improved drastically over the years, sometimes those iPhone camera lenses still can’t do your photos justice. It can also be nearly impossible to get the perfect natural lighting every time. 

Oftentimes, a little extra editing is needed to help make your vision and Instagram feed aspirations come to life. There are a number of factors that you might want to consider when choosing which app (or apps) is best for you. You will want to consider the size of display, complexity of features, ease of use and of course, the price. 

While there seems to be a new photo editing app in the App Store every day, there are a few that stick out to us. That’s why we rounded up some of our go-to photo editing apps that can help you create the Instagram feed of your dreams. 

Jumping into Adobe’s Creative Suite can be daunting, but Adobe Lightroom is the perfect place to start, offering you professional-level control and quality over your photos. If you want to explore and learn about photo editing features, Lightroom Mobile provides a handful of interactive tutorials that will help walk you through dozens of tools. 

If you’re wanting to create that perfect Instagram feed, look no further. Tezza, will help you create the aesthetic of your dreams with dozens of presets and templates to use. Ranging in preset styles like vintage vibes, dark and moody or bright and colorful, there is something for everyone. Plus, the app is female-founded, which we LOVE! Enjoy a few presets for free, or enjoy unlimited presets for $5.99 a month. 

Not only is Google Photos a great tool for photo editing, it also provides you with a backup storage option in the cloud that will store all of your photos, even if your phone gets misplaced or broken. If you’re looking for basic edits, such as adjusting exposure, contrast, saturation or warmth, this provides you with an easy tool where you can slide the toolbars and adjust in real-time. Once you’re finished editing, it’s super simple to organize your photos and easily share with friends or family.
