Are you an Instagram
addict lover like me? I love browsing through my feeds and seeing gorgeous photos – it just makes my day!
I try to post as well, and sometimes when time isn’t on my side, I do a simple point-focus-shoot and then post. But other times, when life is less hectic (in other words, the kids aren’t screaming or trying to kill each other), I like to play around with photo apps. And boy oh boy, I have downloaded quite a few.
Here’re some of my favourite (and most frequently used) photo-editing apps on my iPhone.
#1: Wordswag (Download link here)
My latest download – and there is so many ways to play around with the words, fonts, colours, effects that it is quite a joy to use. A picture paints a thousand words, and if you have a quotable quote to say, use this app to add some pizazz to your words!
#2: Little Moments (Download link here)
This is a photo app developed by popular Aussie mum blogger Chantelle of Fat Mum Slim. I love the clean look of the app, which is in line which how her overall blog looks like, and I love the fact she got a few other people on board to also contribute their own style and photo effects. Oh, and if you are a fan of her daily Instagram challenges, this app also prompts you every day, and is pretty smart in letting you post direct to Instagram (some apps are less intuitive).
#3: A Beautiful Mess (Download link here)
Another gorgeous app, and one that is pretty affordable at just US$0.99! One of the first few photo edit apps I purchased, and definitely worth it, with such pretty fonts, filters and doodles. This app is developed by sisters Elsie and Emma of A Beautiful Mess blog – and I love their gorgeous photographs on their blog, and their app reflects this too!
#4: Rhonna Designs (Download link here)
What I like about this app, and what sets it apart from the above two (in my opinion) is its big array of pre-loaded designs and “stamps” to use on your photo, which helps add a bit more zing to it. Bad part is, I am pretty limited in my graphic design ability and end up using the same few prints some times, which makes my photos look too repetitive for my liking! Still, a decent enough app.
#5: Burst Mode (Download link here)
Are you a parent too? Then you will understand that sometimes kids make the worst photograph subject. I first used this app when I brought the boys to a outdoor water playground, and boy o boy, this was a fabulous app as it would take about 100 photos in about 3 seconds – and you can SURELY find a good shot!
#6: Hyperlapse (Download link here)
Recently released by the same people who brought us Instagram, Hyperlapse is pretty awesome. I used it as we drove up to Canberra, and I love how it looks! Like this:
(Pardon the shaky hand – it was one bumpy road!)
Oh, to make your face glow? Even out those wrinkles? Shave off a few years? No app does it as kawaii-cute as these two, I reckon!
#8: Video? Photo? Can’t decide? Have both in your Instagram pic using PicPlayPost (Download link here)
Love this app being so easy to use. Simply select the photos and videos you want, add them in, and voila! You are ready with a cracker of a Insta post to impress! While you CAN put more than 1 videos in, do note that it all plays AT ONCE, so if the audio will be pretty messed up. Less is always more!
