VSCO

  • Available for iOS and Android
  • Freemium

It is really easy to use. The design is minimalistic and clear.

You can edit almost everything from tone and white balance to exposure and clarity. The app also has 10 free presets that do not make your pictures look unpleasant (this is quite common in most editing applications). 

VSCO has its community, looking pretty much like the Insta feed, where you can publish your photos or see what others are doing.

Snapseed

  • Free for iOS and Android 

Snapseed is a complete and professional photo editor developed by Google. Snapseed is perfect for managing brightness, contrast, white balance, exposure, color and more, and has more basic tools for cropping and adjusting the perspective of images.

Snapseed also includes a bunch of tools like a healing brush for correcting imperfections and a lens blur option for focusing on one particular spot.

It opens JPG and RAW files and has tutorial cards with tips and tricks about Snapseed and general photography.

Canva

  • Available for iOS and Android
  • Freemium

Canva's design tool is used by over 50 million users from 179 countries around the world. You can use it for creating non-banal and catchy stories and posts or even become a contributor and start selling your content.

You can use or sell photos, pictures, graphics and videos there. It is possible to create logos, T-shirts and business cards using Canva. There are millions of different elements and pictures you can add to your design to make it unique despite how popular the app is, which is kind of impressive.

Nichi

  • Available for iOS and Android
  • Freemium

Nichi is another app for making stories and collages. You can create stories on a blank canvas and customize them with text, free stickers, frames, templates and brush features. Nichi provides multiple clip art images, tapes, sketches, etc. It includes film, Polaroid and other retro-style filters and has handwriting fonts and more. 

According to reviews, it is user-friendly, and we can't help but agree with them. A free version has a lot of stylish and unique stuff, plus Nichi is simple to work with.

Adobe Photoshop Fix

  • Available for iOS and Android
  • Freemium 

Yeah, yeah, no matter how many different apps have been recently created, Photoshop is still one of the tops. 

This version allows you to do many things such as adjusting photos or blur some of their parts. But most importantly it can create a bigger smile or edit other facial points with remarkable ease. Push, pull, rotate, swell or reshape any area to create subtle or drastic effects. The app can add or remove the light from specific parts of a photo and much more.

As promised, here are blogs to inspire some new ideas for your photos:

HYPNO

It is an online photography magazine based in Kyiv.

They publish pictures by different photographers from all over the world, and every post has its magic -- some remind us about childhood or lost love, some have colors associated with the things we love or hate.

Photos of a Slovakian young artist are all about composition, searching for unexpected foreshortening and crazy ideas. Michal plays with reality and imagination and seems to be unafraid of experiments and self-citation. Most of his works are for fashion projects, but even if you are not a huge fan of such time of photography, the artist can still be a source of inspiration. 

Alec Soth

Alec Soth is a 51-year-old American artist who has published over 20 photo books. He can certainly be called one of the most outstanding documentary photographers because he works with numerous topics and he has a unique style. His skill to tell personal stories of strangers is impressive. Soth’s work with colors and his non-verbal communication with heroes and heroines are some things you’d like to see.

Explore, enjoy and create something special!
