Six Awesome Apps for Smartphone Photography Enthusiast

by September 8, 2016 0 comments

Digital photography has been around us since December 1975 when an engineer at Eastman Kodak named Steve Sasson developed it. From point-and-shoot to DSLRs, we are now in the age of smartphone photography and brands are more focused on introducing cameras that do the job perfectly.

Flagship smartphone cameras can produce great results and with a wide range of photography apps you can take great photos and edit them from your smartphone within minutes. Here are 6 of the best photography apps for users:



Prisma is currently the talk of the town. It turns your normal photograph into a visual treat. It has 36 artistic filters that makes your pictures stand out from a crowd of similar photo editing apps.

From Munch to Picasso; the Japanese ukiyo-e style to pop art, all the filters are inspired by famous artists and styles. Once you apply the filter, you can swipe left or right to decrease or increase the intensity of the filter. You also get an option of sharing the image to your social networks.

Applying a filter on images might take some time beacuse the complex neural network relies on an internet connection but we assure you that it’s totally worth the wait. Prisma has topped the charts the world over in Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store.



Pixelmator is a powerful image editing app that works on iOS and OS X. It features selection, painting, retouching, navigation, and color correction tools; as well as layer-based image editing. Pixelmator uses Core Image and OpenGL technologies that use the Mac’s video card for image processing.

It has an intuitive touch interface that is simply the best in its class. I have been using it for a while and I’ll say that it’s great for advanced photo editing thanks to its repair and editing tools.



Over is meant for people who wish to do something highly creative with their snaps. With Over’s mobile app, you can perfectly design a greeting card, create a graphic, caption a photo, and much more. The app also has a built-in store with all kinds of add-ons and font packs for further customization.

Unleash your creative side and play around with exclusive artwork options and create professional images with Over.



Launched in 2012 by Visual Supply Company, VSCO is a photography app where you can create an account and upload or take photos, edit and add filters, and share them with other VSCO users or on social media sites.

It has amazing filters and boasts of a vibrant community were you can discover great content from people you follow and VSCO Originals. It also allows you to find and follow friends and people from around the world.



Developed by Nik Software, Snapseed is ideal for enhancing your photos. Brightness, contrast, and saturation are some of the standard tasks that it can perform. If you want to manually edit your images then you can fine-tune them with touch-gestures. You can even choose to edit and customize a selection within your photo.

Snapseed is known primarily for its filters like Retrolux, Vintage, Tilt Shift, Drama and other super cool effects, and it’s free of charge with no ads.



Pixlr by Autodesk lets you create various collages, adjust various aspects of photos, share them, and more. It’s great looking interface and multitude of features makes it worth using. It also supports quick effects like pencil sketch finish, auto balance, and color splash. You can choose from over 2 million combinations of free effects, overlays and borders to personalize your image. The best part of this app is that you get to experience everything without any pesky advertisements.
