I enjoy photography a lot as evidenced by my 2,000+ photos on my phone. I also have a DSLR, but ya know, I tend to use my Galaxy Nexus more because I can’t always carry my DSLR and the best photos are those that are unexpectedly captured. I wanted to share a few of my favorite phone photo editing apps that I use.
1. Pixlr-o-matic – This app is used to add retro/vintage effects to your photos. You can also add lighting effects to add drama, sparkle or a grunge look. I use this app a lot to add vignette overlays and smoky edges. This is probably my favorite app on my phone. They also have an online version that has a fun interface (http://pixlr.com/o-matic/).
2. Camera 360 - My (stock) camera app on my last phone died on me so rather than getting another phone I decided to download this app. It worked perfectly for snappin’ shots. I tend to use this app on my new phone to edit my photos. It has 16 different effects such as LOMO HDR, 1839, Magic Color, Enhance, etc. I use the Enhance effect more than anything to add warmth to my photos. This app also has scenes (make your photo into a billboard, etc.), but I have not used that feature.

3. Phonto – This a simple app that allows you to add text to photos.
4. Photo Grid – This is a simple app that allows you to make collages from photos on your phone.
I used both Phonto (add my watermark) and Photo Grid to create this collage.
Did you notice that I didn’t mention Instagram? Yeah, I don’t know what it is, but I just cannot jump on that bandwagon. Not really a fan.
What’s your favorite photo editing app?
