HARRISBURG, Pa., June 29, 2013 – Smartphones can be used on so many more levels than just to communicate. Apps provide endless windows of opportunity to create and express ourselves. The following four apps have become particularly popular for editing photos.


Photoshop is no longer necessary with this free app Pixlr Express PLUS. This app provides the best features for editing photos on your phone. Users can either upload a photo from their camera roll or take one with the app. Effects include overlays, borders, typography, various filters, and even stickers. Due to all its features, the app is slow but the results are worth it.


Besides being the most popular app for taking photos, Instagram just released their latest video feature. Though photo quality doesn’t compare to the normal smartphone camera, this app does make it extremely easy to edit and share with friends. Users can also take a photo with their phone outside of Instagram and upload it to Instagram with another app such as Filter Mania.

A great part about photo apps is you can take it anywhere and upload, edit and share the photo on the road. A Beautiful Mess app only costs $.99 and allows the user to add borders and text in fun fonts to the photo. The app was actually created by two blog owners. It’s a great way to pass the time and share some beautiful pictures with friends as you travel to Rhode Island


Another app that will allow photo manipulation is PicFrame, which can be purchased for $.99 in the App Store. The app allows a user to create custom collages to share with friends and family via social media sites or email. These collages can be used for more than just personal fun; businesses like chemical distributors can upload them to their blog and social sites as well.
