5 photo-editing apps you must download

Published

on

Tinkering with photos can be tough when you’re not too familiar with Photoshop, but applications on your mobile device can make it easy, intuitive, and fun. Expanding your editing skill set shouldn’t come at the cost of portability, nor should you settle for Instagram filters for all photo manipulation. Here are five must-have iOS and Android photo-editing apps to help you make your photos look even more incredible:

Snapseed (iOS and Android)

Snapseed has a minimalist, easy-to-use interface that lets users navigate their way across the application with ease, style, and comfort.Not only does the app have a ton of features that give users a lot of breathing space to explore in their own time, but it also allows them to open and edit RAW DNG files. Not to mention, this app is available for free on both Android and iOS.

VSCO (iOS and Android)

VSCO has been the known go-to photo-editing application and with good reason. Offering both camera settings and photo-editing features, it’s been one, of many, favorite photo-centric apps on iOS. If you have an Android, VSCO is now available to you for free.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (iOS and Android)

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is one of the most complete photo-editing applications. Lightroom has a smooth and clean interface that allows precise controls over color, filter, and tone adjustments for your photos. It lets users sync edits from smartphone photos and RAW images from DSLRs. You can even take videos and have direct access to Adobe Premiere Clip. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is available to both Android and iOS users.

PicsArt Photo Studio (iOS and Android)

PicsArt has a bold and colorful design that gives you tags, stickers, and challenges to inspire you to craft your own unique aesthetic. It has Smash Hits to scroll through and follow, while managing to let users craft their own selfie stickers. PicsArt is free for both iOS and Android users.

Typorama (iOS)

Typorama has impressive text-on-photo layouts that’ll make any picture pop! With a wide array of text styles, it can seem daunting to pick one to pair with your photo at first. Don’t worry, Tyrporama has sample designs to scroll through for inspiration, as well as to help build your own design. Unfortunately, this app is only available to iOS users.

What’s your photo-editing app?

There are a lot of photo-editing apps available on both iOS and Android, and each app has its own unique strength — from simple filters to cute stickers. Every software has its own set of features with the standard crop and rotate tools, which is probably why people hardly stick to just one.

Bad news for Pokémon Go trainers out there with an old iPhone. If the “battery-gate” fiasco is not enough to make you upgrade, this announcement might force you if you want to keep on playing.

Niantic announced its plans to drop support for iOS devices that can’t be updated to iOS 11. Primarily, these are iPhones and even iPads released in or before 2013. They are the following:

  • iPhone 5c
  • iPhone 5
  • iPad (4th generation)
  • iPad (3rd generation)
  • iPad mini (1st generation)
  • iPad 2

The anticipated update will take effect starting February 28, 2018. After that date, Trainers using Apple devices that can’t be updated to iOS 11 will no longer be able to log in, catch Pokémon, and use their PokéCoins or other items. They must switch to a supported device to continue playing.

Niantic stated that the change is a result of improvements to Pokémon Go which push the game ahead of the capabilities of old iPhones and iPads.
