6 Useful Photo Editing Apps For Social Media

This is by no means a comprehensive list. In fact, if you know of an awesome app, please leave me a comment below.

But since I am a blogger, and I am very active on social media, I do use several apps to help me edit and create pictures. And even if you aren't a blogger or a social media fanatic, these apps (in my opinion) are still great for personal use to create great photos.

So let's get started....

Canva is an app that I just started learning to use. What I like about this app is the variety of layouts. I've found out recently that different social media platforms work better with different size images and layouts. Canva does the work for you. You can choose from blog graphic, twitter graphic, pinterest, instagram and the list goes on and on. In fact, the image above was created with Canva.

Snapseed is my go-to app for blurring the background of images. If I take a pic in a crowded area, I often use Snapseed to try to blur the images of people that I don't know. But it does much much more than that. There are several filters along with the ability to add text. Actually, I haven't even learned how to use some of the features yet. It's a great app. And yes it's free.

I use Layout  from instagram frequently when I want to make collages. Also, Live Collage  is another easy to use great app to create a collage of pictures and add backgrounds.

Lately, one app that I'm having a lot of fun with is Prisma. It's fun to see what the different filters will look like.

And another app that I've just discovered is the color pop effects app. With this app, the image is converted to grey scale, and then you choose which section of the picture to have in color. It's fun, and it can be very bold. And it can really give a photo a new fresh look.

And for my android users, I apologize that all of these links are for the iPhone. But, I'm fairly certain most of these apps are also available for the android.

And of course, you can always check out my instagram for more pics and videos where basically I just enjoy having fun being me https://www.instagram.com/Willrun4icecream/

  1. I'll have to check to see if a few of these are available on Android. I always wonder how people have such cool IG pics!

  2. I actually use all these apps! Snapseed is my favorite, but another similar one is VSCO.

  3. I just installed Snapseed, Color Pop Effects and Prisma! I also use Photofy for adding stickers and text and Fotor for collages. Thanks for the post!
