How many apps does it take to edit an iPhone photo? Sometimes, the auto-edit function built into the iPhone can make me happy. But more often, I’m using at least one photo editing app for improved color, contrast, brightness and detail, so generally, just one will do. But when you have several apps in your arsenal, why not see what you can do with two, or three?
In the case of a magnolia flower that began life as a fairly ordinary iPhone 5s image, with some distracting elements around its creamy white petals, I made technical edits in Snapseed, then tried some subtle filters in Photo fx Ultra, and finally applied ArtStudio‘s wind effect for fun. While not technically a photo editing app, having an artsy app like ArtStudio in your bag of tricks allows some painterly effects.
Do you think so many apps = so much time spent editing? Not once you get the hang of the way the apps work. Yes, there are so many photo apps, for edits and filters and painting effects. And yes, they actually do take so little time to work their magic.
There are so many creative approaches, in fact, to picture editing via app that you many want to get your iphoneography motor running—with a look at the contributors to Sally Donatello’s monthly Nature challenge here: Lens and Pens by Sally. ♣
