TOP 5 MUST-HAVE CAMERA APPS!

.

Like many of you I enjoy capturing the little moments in life and often find it easier to use my iPhone than carrying around my big, heavy DSLR everyday. Plus there is the added bonus of instantly editing and uploading your photos to all your social media networks whilst you’re on the go which adds to all the fun, right? Well, here are my top 5 must-have camera apps so you too can have your very own handy photo editing studio, right in your pocket!. (Sadly, they’re not yet available on Android).

.

PIC TAP GO – Developed by the folks from Totally Rad who also make amazing Photoshop actions this app is pretty neat for adding that extra pow! to your photos. From the very basic tweaks to more complex creations, you can layer effects to create a look that’s entirely unique with the added bonus of saving the ‘recipe’ to use on the future photos you take.

Available for: iPhone  Price: £1.49 /$2.24  Web: pictapgo

.

VSCO – For me the notion of ‘less is more’ definitely applies when processing photos from shoots and this also applies to photos I take on my iPhone. VSCO make beautiful filters for using in Adobe Lightroom that closely resemble the ‘look and feel’ you get from film photography. Their app is simple to use and offers you 10 lush filters to give your photos that professional look.

Available for: iPhone (new update OS.6 only) Price: £0.69 /$0.99  Web: vscocam

.

PHOTOGENE – There are many apps on the market that do great things and Photogene is one of them. What I love most about it is the crop and straighten tool (I MUST have straight horizons!!) Plus you can make colour adjustments and use the healing tool to remove any unwanted spots etc. So, if you have a little more time on your hands then this is the must-have app for you.

Available for: iPhone  Price: £0.69/$0.99  Web: photogene2

.

PIC LAB – If you want to add some text to your photos, this fab little app lets you do just that. With a wide range of sexy fonts and stylish frame options your world really is your oyster. You can also unlock in-app upgrades for additional fonts and frames but there is already plenty included to start with and will keep you entertained for a while.

Available for: iPhone  Price: £0.69/$0.99

.

A BEAUTIFUL MESS – If you’re after a bit of extra fun, then this wonderful app by the lovely and talented ladies Elise and Emma from the popular blog ‘A Beautiful Mess’  is the one to have. This app lets you edit your photos using custom filters as well as add creative quirky borders, hand-drawn doodles and text to your images giving them that personal touch.
