What apps do I use to edit photos on my iPhone? — 2022

In these times, it is preferable to have a high-end Smartphone than a compact camera and, sometimes, even a SLR, since these have great cameras capable of doing a magnificent job if we know how to get the most out of them. If we also have that they can beedit photos on iPhone without appsIt's all wonderful, although there are always more powerful tools than the native ones for, for example,add a watermark to your photos from iPhone or iPad.

Today I bring you a series of apps that I use to edit the photos that I take with my iPhone 7 Plus and I even link you to an Instagram account in which I upload content taken with said Smartphone, in case you want me to tips and tell you the steps I've followed to edit the photos I have published.
The account in question is Charlitwophotography.


Afterlight Main Screens

For me, one of the most complete in the App Store, although it is not the one I use the most.

In this application you will be able to edit photos at a fairly advanced level, since it allows you to configure a multitude of parameters. I usually use it for shadow correction , as well as the light correction and the use of grain , as it does a magnificent job in this regard.

As for the rest of the functions , we can add a vignette effect, give details, calibrate the temperature and saturation, and even play with different color tones of the lights and shadows.

As for the filters, it is the one that has the most variety Regarding the other two Apps that I bring you, although they do not convince me much; If you want to make use of any of the filters, I recommend that you do not put it to the maximum, since the photo will look too artificial (around 50-70% usually look quite good).

Snapseed Tool Panel

Without a doubt, it is one of the free Apps in the field photography that offers a more professional experience .
It's gesture-based, so it has a bit of a learning curve.

With it you can calibrate the brightness, contrast, saturation, environment, shadows, warmth and highlights. We can even calibrate the brightness, contrast, saturation and structure selectively, that is, by specific areas, so we can edit our photos at a deeper level.

In the tools panel we will be able to find many more functions, such as the use of a brush, removing stains, editing by means of curves and even correcting the white balance.

As for filters , I particularly recommend them, but making moderate use of them, since if we pass the photos they could lose some quality. In particular, highlight the number of filters it has in terms of the use of black and white. If you make good use of the filters it comes with, you can create true works of art.

VSCO Store and Dashboard

In particular, it is the one I use the most. .
I use it both to edit photos and from gallery, since interesting photo that I take with iPhone, photo that I export to VSCO, thus deleting it from iPhone gallery.

As for filters , for me they are all perfect and the photos practically do not lose quality no matter what filter we put on it; on the other hand, it is true that it is the one that brings the least number of filters unless you want to pay for some extra packages that are offered in the App Store (sometimes they offer free filters, you have to be attentive and visit the Store occasionally).

Regarding the use of the application , is intuitive and easy to use, so you won't have any problems.

In how much to the rest from functions , you can calibrate the exposure, the contrast, the grain, add clarity and sharpen the photo, add saturation and calibrate the temperature, calibrate shadows and highlights (although the latter two are not their strong points), skin tone, add a tone to shadows and highlights with a much wider variety than with Afterlight.
A curious fact about this App is that you can copy the edition of a photo and paste it on multiple photos at once , so you will only need to edit a photo.
Another aspect to highlight is that we can save it in different sizes, from small to real size.

As I told you at the beginning of the post, I am redirecting you to an Instagram account where I post Photographs edited with are Apps Y made with an iPhone 7 Plus .
If you want any advice, steps to follow or that I send you how I have edited a specific photograph, you only have to comment on said photo or send me a direct message.

They are undoubtedly great apps in which, in addition to finding filters, you will find simpler functions such as those ofrotate images and videos on iOSand many others.
