Beyond Instagram: Photo Editing and Typography Apps

Beyond Instagram: Photo Editing and Typography Appsby Cheri Lucas Rowlands on March 5, 2014Last year, we shared some of our favorite photo apps and alternatives to Instagram. We’ve since discovered more photo apps, some free and some a few bucks each, as well as options focusing on specific effects (such as adding text and enhancing images with typography). Here are some options worth checking out.GENERAL EDITINGAdobe Photoshop Express (iOS | Android | Windows — all free)From the makers of Photoshop, this in-your-pocket version is an all-around solid app for general editing, filters, borders and frames (for the iOS version only), and easy touch-ups (cropping, straightening, rotating, removing red eye). You can also capture images right in the app, and share your mini-masterpieces across your social networks, too.Photo Editor by Aviary (iOS | Android | Windows — all free)Another free editing app, Aviary lets you add filters and frames, creative stickers, and more, and offers touch-up tools (red eye removal, blemish retouching, and even teeth whitening) to improve your pictures on the go.Lomogram (Windows, free)Want to share your life through lomo colors? A Windows alternative to Instagram, Lomogram has a mix of retro effects, borders (from polaroid to 35mm), scratches, light leaks/tweaks, auto-vignetting, and more. You can combine these effects to create a unique and oftentimes quirky image, all in the spirit of lomography and analog photography.TEXT AND TYPOGRAPHYPicLab (PicLab HD) (iOS (free) | iOS HD, $1.99) | Android, free)
