Since there are smartphones and the ability to take photos, I have tried and tried millions of different mobile applications. Leaving aside Instagram, the most popular ever, but undoubtedly more suitable as a social network than to take pictures and edit them, my personal final choice falls on 10 smartphone photography apps that I use most of all at the end of the fair. In order not to hurt anyone, I present them in alphabetical order below.
The 10 best smartphone photography apps and post editing
For iOS (€ 1.09) and Android (€ 0.72). Afterlight is one of the smartphone photography apps that I prefer and use most of all. I had already talked about it in the 5 best tips on how to take perfect flat lay photos. It has fast and effective editing, easy and intuitive for newbies. It allows you to modify our photos by intervening on every aspect. From light to shadows, from sharpness to temperature. Lots of filters available, frames and so on and so forth. It is really worth it.
Only for iOS (€ 3.49). Suffice it to say that more than 10 million Camera+ have been sold. It is the first photographic application that I started using. Perfect for those who are beginners and do not know where to start to better edit their photos. You can do everything without limits to the imagination whatever our photographic style. It costs money but is an excellent investment for those who need to publish images of a certain level.
Free app only for iOS. Photofox in 2017 won a deserved Apple Design Awards. Among the best apps for smartphone photography, it is certainly the most sophisticated. Specialized in managing the advanced processing of our photos taken with mobile phones, it offers a wide range of tools that allow truly excellent corrections and improvements.
4. Photo Lab
Free for both iOS and Android. Photo Lab is certainly not one of the most professional and I confess that I had some initial problems learning how to use it. But if you have a moment of patience and above all you want to create original and different effects from the usual entrust to her. It has more than 800 and puts our imagination to the test. To get out of the usual photographic routine for me it is exceptional.
5. PS Express (Adobe Photoshop Express)
Free app for both iOS and Android. PS Express means having Adobe Photoshop directly on our smartphone. All of its most powerful editing tools at your fingertips. What more could you ask for? A dream come true.
6. Rookie Cam
Free for both iOS and Android. Rookie Cam is great for those who want to go beyond classic basic photo editing. A very complete app from every point of view.
Free photo app for both iOS and Android. Among the best apps for smartphone photography Snapseed is certainly one of the best known and most popular. In addition to being very complete and easy to use, one of its strengths is that of being able to selectively intervene only on certain parts of the photo that we need to modify.
Free for both iOS and Android. Studio is a professional photo editor with 10 and praise. One of the best solutions in this field. Intuitive and with all the tools you need for those who want to get the best out of their shots. And yes, he can do memes too.
Free for both iOS and Android. VSCO is undoubtedly another popular smartphone photography application. Used by every self-respecting blogger, it allows you to improve even the most difficult photos in a fast, simple and intuitive way. Designed to help us fully express our creative potential, it should become our right hand.
Free for both iOS and Android. In my opinion, YouCamPerfect is really the only app for selfies that deserves attention. Allows you to change all our physical appearance cm by cm. Height, curves, skin, makeup and weight included. I just recommend being careful in the dosage because going from an improvement to a “who the hell is this?” it’s a moment. Handle with care but don’t do without it.
These, in my opinion, are the 10 best official smartphone photography apps. And what do you rely on the most? Do you have any new ones to recommend?
