Ever since I got my iphone 4s I've been going crazy taking photos, and one of my favorite things to do is experiment with the cool photo apps that are available! Soooo I thought it might be nice to share a few of my favorite programs and how I like to use them! <3
Most people have instagram or have heard of it... but for those of you who don't use it - you should check it out! It's my favorite photo sharing app! I love that you can find new people through it, see whats popular with people all over the world and also see whats popular with the friends you follow. The filters for photos you upload are super cool and there are some nice borders that are optional as well. It can also push the photos to tumblr, facebook, twitter and flickr when you upload them which I love because it saves me time! Click here for more info from iTunes.
This is the app I use for making photo collages and outfit photos for my blog and instagram! It's a very handy little app when you have more than one photo you want to share and are away from a computer and want to quickly merge it all on your phone. You can add curved corners to your collage and change the background color, and there are also three pages of layout options! Click here for more info from iTunes.
LOVE this app!! If you are familiar with purikura or sticker pictures, this app is a way to create that sort of thing on your phone! It has 6 different sections of sticker images, continuous stamps and borders along with a pen tool and ways to add text. If you wanted to take it further you could even print these out on sticker paper and use them like real purikura! I've done that a few times with my friends. Note: The last image was edited in PriPriMarron and then Princess Camera, which is mentioned below. You should definitely try out using these apps together, you can get even better results!

Pretty straight forward... it's a mobile version of Flickr. I use this to upload photos straight from my phone so I can be lazy and avoid the step of importing them onto my computer and then uploading them. Heh! I don't use it for much else, but that feature alone makes this app dreamy for me. I love saving time and anything to keep me from having to sit at the computer is a plus!

Another photo decoration app similar to PriPri Marron but with different options. The options seem to be more tailored towards making your photos "cuter" with lighting techniques and fake make up. There are little stamps and stickers you can add, but the selection is much smaller. This app is also a little more difficult to use, but the ability to enhance your appearance is still cool and worth trying. You can see I put fake bottom and top lashes, blush and little bows on myself above! I like to use this app with PriPri Marron - I'll often enhance the appearance of a person in Princess Cam, and then take it into PPM to add fun borders and details for an over the top photo.

Ahhh, PiciBooth - I love this app because it's a free photo booth, but I also slightly hate this app because you are forced to watch ads while your photos "develop"! While the ads are annoying, the overall usability and quality is pretty good for free. I only takes 3 photos with the front facing camera on a timed setting (like a real photo booth!) and it has 5 filters you can use on them afterwords. I usually crop out the logo at the bottom if I plan on putting these online or printing them out! You can see that in the photo on the left... and the giant image of me in that photo is just an enlarged area of another photo strip! They still retain a lot of photo quality after being saved so you can play around with them a bit which is awesome! Click here for more info from iTunes.
This is a filter app with features that remind me of the filters in instagram but 10x more awesome. There are hundreds of combinations you can choose from - and if you look at the top right corner of the first photo there is even an option for the program to randomly select nice combinations for you! You can select light filters, overlays and frames for your photos. Best of all, it doesn't crop them like instagram does!! Very fun app for those who like to take their photos one step further. Click here for more info from iTunes.
Adobe Photoshop Express
Last but not least, Photoshop for your iPhone! The options on this app are limited, but its nice if you just need to adjust the photo slightly due to poor lighting or something. I think you might be able to buy additional photo editing features for the app, but I haven't looked into that since I'm thrifty with my app purchases. ;) Click here for more info from iTunes.
And that's it! I hope you guys like the apps mentioned and let me know if you have any favorites I should check out! Happy Friday you guys!!
