Between #TBT, #FBF, and #SelfieSaturday, there’s a good chance that you will be posting photos of yourself on social media outlets like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. And whether they are camera phone pictures or pictures that are uploaded to your phone, a great photo editing app is essential.
Here’s a list of my favorite photo editing apps for the perfect selfie:
*note this list applies to the iPhone—sound off in the comment section for Android apps!
Photo Editor by Aviary– this is probably my favorite photo editing app. Not only can you make basic edits such as crop, contrast, sharpness, but there are a ton of gorgeous filter packs to play with (even more are available for purchase). You can also fix blemishes, whiten teeth, add text, stickers, frames, and fix red eye. But maybe the coolest feature is the Meme feature so you can create your own Meme like I did above.
Facetune– This is a great app for tweaking minor imperfections in portrait or close up photos. Whiten your teeth, smooth out your complexion, amp up your skin tone and fix blemishes all with this app! And to top it off, you can choose to add a filter to your photo as well.
More Beaute2- Truly for the selfie queen, this app automatically smooths and brightens all photos to perfection in one swoop. Photo looking a little too perfect? No worries–you can adjust the levels to your liking.
Pixlr Express– The awesome desktop software is available on your phone as well! You can pretty much do all the same things on Pixlr’s desktop version that you have here. You can make extensive photo edits, add beautiful filters, borders, add text and stickers.
VSCOcam– The filters in this app are beautiful for portrait style pictures. The filter strength is adjustable and you can also perform other basic and not so basic edits such as adjusting the temperature, fade, and tints.
Are there any photo editing apps that need to be added to the list that you swear by?
