What would we do if we couldn’t take pictures on our phones? (Insert emoji here – the monkey one with his hands on his cheeks and his expression is O.O) Everyday we are taking pictures of our lives; what we are doing, what we are eating, what we are working on, etc… Documenting our lives. Thank goodness for phones – what would we do with out it? I get asked what apps I use on my phone all the time. I love APPs!!! I have 5 screens full of them. (Is that too many? Naaa!) APPS, APPS, APPS. I use it for banking, shopping, ordering prescriptions, renting movies, going to the movies, online meetings, the list goes on and on. But my favorite are the photo APPS. So here are my list of favorites. Check them out! (These are in no particular order)
What’s no to love about Instagram?!?!? This app is great! It’s super easy to use! You can add filters to your images or just post as they are. Instagram just added video too. So now you can make mini videos and post those too. In case you wanted to (shameless plug) you can follow me on Instagram too: @photosbygalicia
I love love this APP. It gives your images a film look. I love how it deepens the contrast and adds grain.
Pic Tap Go
Talk about easy. This APP has a wide variety of filters. My favorites are Lights on, Auto Color, and Get Faded Neutral. Sometimes I venture off and use Salt + Pepper for my black and whites. The cool thing is that it uploads your images directly to Instagram, Twitter and Facebook (not all at the same time). I love that it adds a different cop ratio than the square crop in Instagram.
Who likes taking selfies??? I do… hehehe. This APP is for you! You can set it up to take a picture with out having to hold your phone. Super easy to use. It even gives you time increments so you have enough time to get set up and take your picture.
Just found this little gem. It too is easy to use. Afterlight has lots of filters and you can add shape and letter cutout to your images. Yes please!!!
Newest APP to my repertoire. I love this APP. You can add quotes, fun doodles, frames, fonts, shapes and more to your images.
Want to make a collage? This APP is for you.
This APP adds cool overlays to your images. You can add hearts, confetti, raindrops and the list goes on and on.
Love this APP because its simple overlays of text. It has a wide variety of fonts and artwork to choose from.
For those who want a bit more control of your editing process; then this is the APP for you. It lets you control just about every aspect of your image. From straightening, tilt – shift (my favorite), sharpening and yadayadayada…
Think I need more APPS?!?! I might, you never know. Share your favorites!
