A few days ago, The Pioneer Woman announced that she would be doing another one of her Photography Assignments, which she does from time to time. Her timing couldn’t have been more perfect because I have recently become slightly…or if I’m being honest, extremely, obsessed with jazzing up the photos I take with my phone.
I’m a bit behind the times, as I’m still rocking my iPhone 3GS…waiting patiently to see what goodies Apple will give us when they release the iPhone 5. My iPhone is great, and as important to me as my right arm, but sadly, the camera isn’t as good as the one on the most recent release. So….I must edit a bit more.
Here are a few of my favorite iPhone photos, that I’ve edited. You’ll be amazed with what you can do with a simple app!
Now, if you want to do some awesome editing with your camera phone pics, here are some apps that I recommend you get. Keep them all together in a “Photography” folder, and you’ll always have them right there where you need them.
1. Instagram: An absolute no-brainer, this app rocks my world. It takes my less than perfect photos and turns them into something wonderful. The picture of my cat and of the flower were edited using only Instagram.
2. Photoshop Express: While not as complete as actually using Photoshop, this little (and FREE) app packs a lot of editing power into a tiny space. While the app itself is free, there is an add on package that is $4.99 that I do recommend. It’s definitely not necessary, but it does do some nice editing to the pics, so to me, it’s worth the money.
3. PicFrame: A great app to have if you want to create collages with your photos. It also adds text…the editing possibilities are endless!
4. Flickr: While not an editing program, I love this program because it’s a cinch to upload your pics to your Flickr account from your phone. It’s really user friendly…quick, easy, wonderful.
I hope you’ll check out some or all of these apps and see what you can do to fix up your camera phones. No more apologizing for the quality of your pics when you post them on your Facebook page! Come on, you know we’ve all done it.
