With the rise of social media, we are paying more attention to mobile photography. Thanks to this, the selection of apps that can be used to edit is increasing every year. Of course, it is difficult to find a universal solution for every user, because some people only want to apply filters, while others need more thorough photo processing.
If you prefer to use AI to enhance photos, we recommend the application Luminar Neo. It will help both beginners and professionals to quickly achieve the desired result. However, if you are more comfortable using your iPhone for photo editing, you should take a look at the best options offered in the App Store. In our top list, we have collected the top applications that will help you make a real masterpiece out of the picture!
Suitable for editing selfies and portraits. You can enhance photos with AI tools. Also, there is a feature to apply an effect such as falling snow, as well as eliminate flaws in the appearance – whiten teeth, emphasize cheekbones, and change the skin tone.
Here are the main instruments of the application:
- Shape – allows you to remove “extra pounds” by editing the contours of the face and body.
- Bleach – applies on the whites of the eyes, teeth, and so on. The brush can be reduced to a single pixel, so the changes will be precise.
- Detail – a particular element will be sharper than the rest of the photo. Applies, for example, to a logo on clothing.
- Patch – removes unnecessary elements from the image.
You can download the application for free, but there is an opportunity to extend the functionality by purchasing a subscription.
Application for simple processing, like adding text or stickers. You can use the standard set of tools – stickers, brushes, and working with light. In addition, there are many additional effects, like exposure compensation or drawing. However, for a beginner, the software can seem a little complicated, and understanding all the tools will take time.
Among the main features of the application are the following:
- A complete set of all the necessary tools for photo processing;
- A lot of stickers and effects;
- The internal social network where you can share your pictures;
- The ability to use AI to enhance images.
If the standard features are not enough for you, you can buy a paid subscription and get access to exclusive tools.
The app is designed to remove unnecessary details from photos. You can quickly remove wires, power lines in the street, stains on clothing, and skin blemishes. For this purpose, there is a set of special tools added. Here they are:
- Objects – use when you need to precisely outline an object in a photo. Line thickness is adjusted for maximum accuracy.
- Quick edits – automatic removal of unnecessary objects from the background. Suitable when there is no time for manual tracing and the backdrop is homogeneous.
- Lines – high-voltage wires often spoil the composition, so TouchRetouch allows users to enhance an image with AI. You don’t need to trace all the wires, just highlight a small area, and the application will recognize the rest of the wires by itself.
- Cloning – the unwanted object is replaced by another part of the image. For example, you can cut out a piece of lawn and put it in place of the object you don’t want to see in the frame.
The only disadvantage is that it is paid software. However, if you often edit images, it will be an indispensable assistant.
This is a great alternative to the default iPhone and Instagram editors. You can’t remove an object from a photo or whiten your teeth, but you can apply simple adjustments.
The best features include:
- Choosing a photo format.
- Adjust contrast, exposure, highlights, shadows, and clarity. You can also do this in the built-in photo editor, but this app has much more tools, so the adjustments will be more precise.
- Adding such effects as undertones, bokeh, paper, and more.
- Setting filters on the photo. However, they are only available with a paid subscription.
An undeniable advantage is also a simple and easy interface that even a beginner will be able to understand. This application will perfectly cope with basic tasks.
One of the most popular apps everyone knows about. Its main feature is the use of presets, which means that you can apply the same settings to several photos at once. If you prefer to keep your profile in the same style, this is just perfect.
Some of the main advantages include:
- A convenient image library. It’s easy to find the picture you want.
- Spot color correction. Very convenient tool if you need to neatly correct a certain color in the photo.
- You can both download ready-made presets and create your own.
You can install the application for free and expand its capabilities with built-in purchases.
