Hello there, it’s Mandy Faith from Man D again! In light of iphoneograhy that is blooming in recent years, useful photography apps are what everyone is searching. Today, I would like to share a few that I find really fantastic!
#1 A Beautiful Mess
As an interesting app that encourages creativity, A Beautiful Mess provides an
abundance of stamps, fonts, borders, etc. to boost an otherwise ordinary picture.
Its ease of use is definitely a plus point!
Afterlight is by far my most-used app due to its versatility. Image retouching,
color enhancements, filters, cool crops, film textures… you name it, they have it.
Favorite filters include Russ (top left) with a rustic finish, Coral (top right) with
strong vibrancy and Frost (bottom left) with a pastel wash. Light leak texture 03
(bottom right) and 25 are also useful for all sorts of images.
If you’re a fan of fading tones, the filter Steph is what that will impress you.
EyeEm is also a social site like Instagram that enables showcase and exploration
of good images. Other pretty filters include Ailine and Gee09.
I guess Instagram needs no explanation! I would, though, like to share with you
my favorite filter – Valencia (all pictures above). I love how it brightens the
whole image while taking good control of the contrast. The minty/yellow tone is
also too lovely to be missed.
Picfx comes with absolutely rich filters. Fret not, as there is a sidebar for opacity
adjustments. What’s more, it allows layering, so mix your favorite filters on top
of each other! My usual editing would be adding the filter Pfx 5 and then the filter
Vintage Valentine (tuned down) for a romantic touch.
#6 VSCO Cam
The filters F2 and M5 are cool for dramatic effects while T1 has a fade style that is milder. X1 is brilliant for B&W pictures! VSCO has long been a favorite for photographers that love a vivid and filmy blend.
That’s all for now! Have a lovely day/night.
