Top 5 Apps for Photography

Here's a list of my top five apps for photography :)

VSCO Cam 

app

VSCOcam

 This reminded me of using a DSLR and being able to edit like the way you could in RAW. You can apply filters and double click on it to lower the effect. There's also a little menu you can open and click the wrench to get access to the adjustments. My favorite setting has to be the highlights to fix my overexposed images. You can save them to your gallery or share them on social media/grid. You can pay for extra filters if you want them. The only downside is that you can't zoom in the app when you're trying to take a picture.

Line 

Camera app

Line Camera
 I had to download the Line app first and make an account to get access to this app. You can go to either Beauty or Design.

Beauty you can adjust your brightness and softness to smooth out your skin. This is great for makeup close ups. The beauty section is basically a mini Photoshop. You can set points on your face to enlarge or slim body parts. My favorite settings on here are from the Skin Care section. You can use Blemishes or Dark Circles to blur out bumps, messy makeup (hai mascara), brighten dark circles or soften any shadows.

Design has a number of filters you can play around with plus the usual adjustments. There's also some free frames you can use or you can pay for extra ones. The best part of this app are the stamps! There are free ones you can download and they only last a few months before new ones take over. You might have seen some of them on @nerdburgercazz :) You can place them anywhere, adjust the size and also add text in this app.

Afterlight 

app

Afterlight

 I waited not so patiently for this to be available for Androids! This is my favorite app to use now. It comes with pretty filters that can work for landscape, portraits and regular snapshots.  You can also adjust clarify, brightness, contrast and more settings. I personally prefer the sharpen setting in this app over Instagram's. You can reverse the sharpen here but it will blur the whole image. So Instagram does win for selective blurring.

The other effects are adjustable overlays and light leaks. They have an interesting selection of cut outs in the usual shapes but also in numbers, letters, symbols and random ones. Plus you have options for sizes (square is perfect for instagram), wallpaper options (costs extra) or you could do a regular background. Press done and you can easily save/share. This app can be a little laggy though.

Square 

InstaPic app

Square InstaPic
I prefer this for my collages since it's simple and quick. You can remove the border, choose your style of collage and easily swap or flip the images. This app also has some filters, the usual adjustments and you can use one photo if you prefer. You are able to use the crop or the zoom button to get your image as a square for instagram. They also have an option to add a background color or choose from one of their wallpapers. You can press the instagram icon to post to the app too! I usually go back and have the menu pop up to save as a PNG to my gallery.

Free in Google Play


No Crop 

app

No Crop

 This app has way more wallpaper options! You can have cute patterns like animals, florals, nautical theme, etc. It has some filters but you can't adjust the intensity on those. There's many stickers and frames you can use though! You can also place text on it and choose some nice fonts. You are able to add text too.
