1.Photo Editor by Aviary.
Have you ever felt limited by Instagram’s settings? If so, download Photo Editor by Aviary for a complete range of effects and colour correctors. Its smart “one-tap auto enhance” will help you render a gorgeous photo.
Remember light leaks? Thanks to the Afterlight app’s vintage filters, you can easily recreate those old-timey effects on photos taken with your mobile device.
With filters that complete the package, it’s definitely an app worth buying.
Bokeh is a classic photo effect defined as “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light” and Bokehful imitates the effect with your smartphone.
While a smartphone lens can’t create a bokeh effect, Bokehful will do the trick. It also comes with more whimsical patterns, like the heart-shaped ones used by Burberry above.
Snapseed is a useful instagram picture app that allows you to alter photos and add customised filters that aren’t available through Instagram. Its most unique feature, though, is the one which allows you to selectively retouch specific areas of a photo.

Another one of my favourites, Priime is outfitted with filters created and tested by top photographers around the world. I find that my photos usually come out best when put through a Priime editing process, and highly recommend treating yourself to the additional filters available as in-app purchases. Another feature that sets Priime apart from other photo-editing apps is the filter recommendation, which will quickly help you pick a filter style based on “subject, color palette, exposure, and more.”
