Top 3 Go To Mobile Apps For Editing Photos

As we all know, Instagram is pretty much a visual showcase for Entrepreneurs/Bloggers like myself and many business owners. Last week, I asked you guys if you cared to know how I edit my photos to get each individual colors to standout/pop and almost everyone responded "Yes". 

These days, if you are a Blogger, an Artist, a Small Business Owner etc, one of the many ways to attract followers on Instagram is to have a very good quality photo and an attractive feed. For the most part, all you need is a good quality camera, or your mobile phone, and a few great photo editing apps and the rest is history. I felt it is necessary to share this info, especially if it helps anyone who is looking to up the quality of their photos as well as to create a beautiful and cohesive aesthetic.
The three main apps I’ll love to discuss with you guys are the exact 3 apps that I use to edit my photos. I will be using an example image that was shot in a very poor lighting to demonstrate how you can bring it to life. I will also go in details to share what features/tools I use, along with the image result of an edited photo created with each individual app. I will break them down in the order which I use them to edit my photos. 
Here is a great example of a really bad image (in my opinion), that was shot in a very poor lighting below:
1. LightX
Whenever I want to edit my photos, my first go-to App is usually LightX. It's an advanced editing app (sorta like photoshop on the go) with a clean and easy to use interface. You can save up to 12 megapixel of images, and I believe its main function is to transform images into something interesting. With all its many features, my one and only go-to tool in this app is the ‘point’ tool. This 'point' is my secret weapon tool on how I get each individual colors on my photo to stand-out/pop without interfering with the other. Take a look at the original image below after using LightX 'point' tool.
 
After using ‘point’ on LightX, I switch my results over to my second go-to app, 'A Color Story'. My only go-to feature in this app is the Adjust tab. I typically use the tools in this tab to neutralize the colors on the result derived from LightX by adding brightness and color to make them pop even more. Sometimes, I playing around with exposure and the sharpen tool with the exception of contrast. For some reasons (depending on the image), contrast tends to add more of a yellowish color to my skin that I really don’t like. However, if you're looking for bright whites and color pop, then this is definitely the app to explore. Here's the same images edited with A Color Story
 
3. Vsco
Vsco is my third and final go-to app for editing photos. I believe it's one of the most well-known editing apps and if you're a creator like me, you know this app is totally bae. I have been using Vsco since I started blogging and I still make use of it to this day. One of my many favorite things about this app is the fact that I can save my final edits, and apply that same edit on another photo via copy and paste. While there are lots of pretty cool filters on this app, I love more than anything the ability to curate an image that speaks to my style. So 100% of the time that I'm using this app, I again navigate over to the 'adjust' tab and the three main tools I use here are the skin tone, grain, and sharpen (and in that order). Here's the final image below:
 
So that is it for my 3 go-to apps. Tomorrow on another blog post, I will go into details on my go to filters in the one app (not mentioned above) that I use to quickly edit in less than 2 minutes. Hope this helps somebody out there! If you have any questions, please feel free to drop them in the comment section down below and I will do my best to answer them. 
Enjoy your day!
xoxo

    Greetings beautiful. I was lurking this morning and came across your beautiful vibrant page that’s so informative and creative. I go back and forth trying to decide if I want to blog, because I really don’t have the time honestly. Yes we make time for what we love. I love fashion. I love to write. With this being mentioned, I’m curious about your background /backdrop colors and how to you achieve that same perfection with the background? My active Instagram acct is Besos247. I don’t post as often as I would like but who knows. Thank you for sharing. Be blessed.

    Thanks for the tips. I’m an upcoming food blogger. I really needed these tips to make the colours on my food pop. However, I’m curious to know the App you use to change the bright background colours in your pictures ie; the pink, blue, mint,purple etc background walls. Thanks
