My Must-Have Photo Editing Apps | Lenne Zulkiflly

If you don't already know, I take all of my photos using my one and only smartphone. I don't have DSLR or even a compact camera though I really want to invest in one and I'm lusting after Olympus Pen. Anyway, my photos go through lots of editing and I spend hours and hours to get them to look decent. I'm well aware that my photos are nowhere near as great, as professional as some other bloggers' photos. I'm no photoshop expert, I don't even have photoshop. All of my editing and tweaking gets done on my must-have photo editing apps below! 

Snapseed 

Gworlll, Snapseed is my most used photo editing app, hands down. Snapseed is bae. It's free, it comes with filters and superb basic editing tools. It also has this interesting brush tool to spot adjust exposure, saturation, temperature and dodge and burn. It's very handy! It's what I usually use to achieve true white background in my photos because we all know sometimes lighting can be a bitch. It's a great app, whoever created the app on Play Store, you're the real MVP. If you guys looking for a basic editing app that has almost everything in it, then Snapseed is for you. 

VSCO

I'm pretty sure everyone knows about VSCO. It's one of the most popular photo editing apps. It's also free, comes with editing tools and lots of pretty filters. I usually use VSCO right after I use Snapseed. I prefer editing with Snapseed first and then for finishing touches I prefer VSCO. Just a little FYI, I usually don't put any filters for my photos because they tend to get a little overboard and I like to avoid adjusting things too much. I want my photos to look as if they're naturally taken by a DSLR or something. In my opinion, VSCO's sharpening and tint tools are pretty decent compare to other editing apps. 

Phonto

Phonto is exactly what I use whenever I want to add text to a photo. I've been using Phonto for many many years now. It's such a handy app and even if you're a newbie, you'll not have much trouble using this app. It's easy to use and you'll get the hang of it pretty much instantly. This app also allows you to download your own desired fonts, it does provide you with tons of fonts but I just prefer to download my own fonts from DaDont! It's da bomb dot com. 

What are your must-have photo editing apps?

    1. Lenne prefer guna Snapseed first, then baru edit edit sikit kat VSCO. Tak pandai sangatlah nak edit kat VSCO sebab jadi macam tak natural and over edited. Ajar Lenne lah, Airah hehehe ^^

  5. Those brush option in Snapseed is love! I can play around with it and didn't need any filter at all. I used VSCO for editing to but like you - Snapseed will be my first option. I use VSCO for their amazing filters. Though I don't edit much since I stop putting picture on Instagram now. I shared some short stories now on my Instagram and guess what - I used Phonto for that.

    1. IKR! I'm no expert editing using VSCO because it looks over edited and not as 'natural' hehe. Phonto is definitely the easiest app to use IMO. No fuss! :D

    Tapi if gmbr Nadia amik tue dah cantik just nak terangkan je , Nadia edit skit pakai iphone photo tools je . That's y now jarang dah pakai snapseed except if gmbr tue mmg gelap sgt mmg kena edit lah . Vsco jrg pakai tapi ada pakai if Nadia nak gmbr tue bagi different effect .

    Phonto pakai utk add watermark Nadia je hihi.
