Professional photo editing apps for iphone


The following is a continually updated list provided by app-ranking site of the top 10 most popular free and paid photo editing apps for iPhones, based on app rankings in a search of the phrase: “photo edit.I’m a big fan of my phone. I know don’t laugh, but I love it…like a lot. Since I know a bunch of you are iPhone users since my last iPhone post (the #1 tip all iPhone users need to know), I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite apps with you.

One of my favorite things to do with the iPhone is play around with all the cool photo editing apps (a bunch of these apps are also available for droid as well).My friend (and one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram) @rhonnafarrer recently shared her favorite photo apps. I loved hearing her favorites, so I thought it would be fun to share my favorites too. There are so many photo editing apps out there, so sometimes it helps to hear what people personally like before you buy it or download it.
Before I begin my list, I first need to state that my #1 favorite photo app far and beyond is Instagram. It’s the best. They sure did something right to make it not only a place to edit pictures but to make it social at the same time. LOVE Instagram!

Here are my favorite (TOP 15) Photo Editing iPhone Apps:

01. Phonto – great for adding text to pictures. They have tons of fonts to choose from.
02. Red Stamp – stylish photo greetings, e-greeting cards.
03. Masking Tape – digital washi tape with the ability to add text on the tape.
04. Labelbox – cool labels and text for your pics
05. Picframe – allows you to collage multiple images together into one image
06. Pic Collage – allows you to collage in a more picture pile sort of way
07. Frame Artist – allows you to collage LOTS of images together into one image
