I absolutely love photography and editing photos, it’s just something that I’ve always enjoyed. I love getting the perfect Instagrams that match my feed. However, I do have to use multiple apps to ensure that they do match my feed and that they do look good. A lot of you may already know most of these apps but some of you might not. So here’s my top photo editing apps for iPhone.


VSCO has to be my all-time favourite photo editing app. It has tonnes of filters and features that can help you perfect your image. Many people don’t know this but here’s a tip if you’re new to VSCO: there are actually more free filters available from the store and personally I think they’re better than the pre-set filters. I definitely recommend VSCO, it’s easy to use and can help you produce the highest quality pictures.

Facetune is such a good app for removing unwanted things in photos, like spots in selfies. Facetune is quite an expensive app priced at £4.49.  I personally use Facetune for whitening backgrounds of my photos and the end result is always amazing. I do think it is worth the money if you want to have professional looking photos for your blog/instagram etc.

Gltché is such a fun app for photo editing. It has tonnes of effects where you can edit your photos and also make GIFS. It’s hard to explain the effects, other than the fact that they are all ‘glitch’ related. It’s also quite a good app to edit photos to look like they were shot on a retro video camera, with the date and time stamp and the grainy filter. It’s a really fun app and the possibilities are endless.

Adobe Lightroom

Now this is one of the best apps for changing the colour scale of photos. I hate when I take a photo and colouring is just so orange. With this app you can change the colour to make it whiter and much more natural. It’s quite easy to transform some bad photos to great photos on this app.

Afterlight is very similar to VSCO and has many different filters to choose from. With Afterlight you can also mask photos which basically means you can add frames over them. For example, a letter, which could be quite cool if used correctly and creatively. This is also one of the best apps for the basic photo editing, such as changing exposure and contrast etc.
