Top 10 Photo editing apps for iPhone – Part 1

Here’s numbers 10 – 6 of a list of apps that no self-respecting iPhoneographer should be without.

10. PhotoWizard Photo Wizard App

Possibly the most underrated editing app in the app store. PhotoWizard has incredibly powerful and useful tools that most others don’t. Red eye remover for example, which works incredibly well. I’m still surprised I don’t see more people talking about it on Instagram. It’s actually quite a godsend because there’s some great filters and effects on there that can make your images look individual and pretty much no one else will know where they came from!

9. Phonto Phonto App

Phonto is the one and only app you need to add text to your images. Whether you’re looking for a large and lairy message or a small, translucent watermark, phonto can do it all. It’s list of fonts is ruddy mahoosive and the UI has improved ten fold since the early days. I’ve used most of the other apps that claim to do what phonto does and I can promise you, you won’t find a better one.

8. Montage Montage App

Ever wondered how hipsters on Instagram get those triangle shapes in their photos? It’s all done with montage. You can import an image and choose from a set shape frame or make a freehand one so you can effectively make your images into any shape you want. I suppose its main use, though, would be to get rid of those pescy black lines you get when uploading a photo to Instagram. Adding a large white frame eradicates them. It also enables you to add a nice neat portrait image to Instagram with its annoyingly limiting square proportions. Previously this was impossible.

7. Lens Light Lens Light App

This is fantastic for adding beautiful, natural looking rays of light to your photos. You get a selection of different style rays from sunlight and rainbows to lasers and even lens flare. With total control over the size and brightness of each one you can be as subtle or as in your face as you like.

6. Noir Noir App

If black and white or monochrome images are your thing then this is the app for you. I’ve never come across an app with so much control in such a great way. You can fade a whole area to black and leave a particular subject perfectly visible if you like. It’s range of contrast and the control you have over it is borderline genius. There’s also a selection of Cyanotype and sepia style monochromes to choose from.
