Top Photo Editing Apps

As I'm just finding my feet in the blogging world, and how I can improve my photography and photo editing, I thought I would do a little post on my favourite photo editing apps.

Some of these are free, and some cost, however they are very affordable!


VSCO is quite a well known photo editing app. The one is free, and is one of my favourites when it comes to filters! They have in app purchases where you can buy more filters, but the ones the app comes with when you download it are more than enough for me! They are great for images taken outdoors with good lighting, and can improve the quality of images taken indoors too!


Afterlight is one of if not my favourite app. This is around £0.79 on the Apple App Store at the moment. This one comes with filters, ability to edit, crop etc. light leaks, frames, you name it! The best part is, it's super easy and quick to use!

Color Story

(Yes I'm aware that's spelt the wrong way haha!) This one I'm relatively new too, but a fellow blogger introduced me to this one. It's the perfect app for making images of products look that little brighter! I actually used this on the image at the top of this blog post! It's pretty damn handy, and also free!


If you have ever wondered what I use to add text to my blog photos, this is what I currently use! It's free on the Apple App Store I believe! It has a wide range of texts, and also adds new ones for different events and seasons! You can adjust the size, colour, add filters etc. I love it!

Rhonna Edits Bundle

These last three apps I'm going to mention are available to buy in a bundle on the App Store (however there are free alternatives you can use) and I personally think these are well worth the price! One of my best friends and a fellow blogger (Rachel) recommended these to me, and I'm so glad she did!
The bundle is £3.99 for all three apps. And I can't recommend them enough! They have the cutest designs, collages, texts, filters etc. I could go on! I actually used the collage app to make the photos on this post! 

And that's it for my favourite apps! I have loads more on my phone (20 currently, blogger problems am I right?) but these are the ones I would say I go to the most to edit photos. And some are recently purchased/downloaded, as one of my 2017 goals is to improve the photography on my blog posts!

I hope you enjoyed this little blog post, and let me know what your favourite photo editing apps are in the comments!

And, as always, stay peachy.


  1. I'm like very tempted to spend the five pound and unlock all of typorama!

  2. I love Afterlight! I can't really get to grips with VSCO too much but I find Instagram really good for editing photos (despite them killing the quality haha!) Also Deluxe FX has epic filters :)

    1. Afterlight was definitely worth the purchase!
      Honestly, since downloading all the apps I forget that I can try editing them on Instagram haha!

  3. I've always just used photoshop to edit my pictures, but it would definitely be more handing having an app to use on my phone. This was really useful thank you!


    1. I'd love to be able to get photoshop on my laptop! Maybe in the future if I do blogging long term (which is the plan).
      I'm glad you found the post useful!

  4. Ooooh! Color Story sounds awesome - I always feel like us bloggers need to brighten images first of all! I am guilty of using FaceTune a little too much!

    1. I'd definitely recommend it! Especially as it's free! I use it on literally all of my photos now 😅 X

  5. VSCO is one of my faves! I also really like Foodie, it lets you keep the flashlight on so your pictures have better lighting! Will definitely have to check out Afterlight though!

    1. Oh, I've never heard of that one before! I'll check it out :)
