For those of you who aren't ready to invest in Photoshop, Gimp is a great alternative! It provides a lot of the same photo editing capabilities as Photoshop and is much more user friendly!


Adobe Photoshop

I took the plunge and purchased Photoshop about a year ago, and I love it! Instead of purchasing the software itself, I purchased the Creative Cloud photography plan which gives you access to both Lightroom and Photoshop. The nice thing about this plan is that you can download the Lightroom and Photoshop Fix apps on your tablet which provides the capability of editing photos on the go! This convenience was definitely worth the price!

Cost-See Creative Cloud pricing here.

Photoshop Express

When I first started out in photography and taking pictures with my iPhone, this is the app that I would use the most for editing. The basic app features are free and It provides basic touch up capabilities, several filters to enhance your photos as well as easy sharing to social media. For a minimal cost, additional add on features such as noise reduction and defog can be purchased. 

Cost-Free in App Store, small charge for additional features 


Another free photo editing app is Snapseed. This is another photo editing app that I like to use for quick editing. It features several different filters, automatic adjustments and enhancements and a quick sharing button to upload your photo to social media.

Deluxe FX

Deluxe FX is one of my favorite photo editing apps to be the most creative with my photos. It offers many different types of filters and overlays and the ability to do basic editing functions within the app. 

Cost-Free in App Store


Have you ever wanted to try double exposure photography? With the use of the app Photoblend, you can blend two photos together for that double exposure effect. It is a lot of fun to use!
