Top 5 Photo Editing Apps

Top 5 Photo Editing Apps
Snapseed

Powerful yet easy app to use. Recently given access to edit RAW DNG files. The app has it's filters for general quick edits but for someone who wants a bit more control on the go. Ths app is my recommendation. Being able to use selective adjusting, healing, and dedicated brush make this an app not to be ignored. Effects have been added but you won't have to worry about them taking away from the integrity of the photo if your more of a purest. 

 VSCO

At first glance it may seem less intuitive than other mobile photo editors, but give it a few minutes. This app is as clean as it gets. The filters are nonintrusive and simplicity seems to be the primary focus. VSCO may be one of the most useful app for minimalist out there. If you are a lightroom user there are presets you can download from the VSCO website. For more fun I'd recommend trying to emulate them yourself and give them your own feel. I personally got a lot of inspiration using this app.

Phonto

For anyone that has an interest in adding Typography or text design to your repertoire. Over is a noteworthy mention. The editing is just as precise as mention from the company. I do have to say if your on a phone and have big hands the adjusting position of your characters but I still recommend giving it a try. I did and it worked out. Gave me plenty of ideas and definitely a nice text design playground with many options and customization tools.

Enlight

I'm quite new to Enlight but looking at the photos and the range of photos you can edit and create on this app are amazing. The example double exposure photos from users won me over with this app. I'm currently working on a double exposure in photoshop but if I'm on the go and want to shed some time on my phone, I'd experiment with this app.

Facetune

I put out a post recently asking for some solid on the go editing apps and Facetune was recommended to me and I find this one pretty useful. It has some and automated effect for retouching portraits. I tested it out for a week. I have a few sample portraits as test using the app that I will post in an upcoming blog featuring Facetune. One thing I must mention is that I advise to go really light on the retouching using this app because quite simply you never want to overdue it. 

I'm not away from my computer very often but when I am and in the pinch these apps help me out quite a bit. Other than that these phone apps are fun to use and a fantastic change of pace.
