10 Best iPhone Photo Apps for Incredible Photography
The new iPhone 11 line-up is clearly the best it has been as far as the camera performance is concerned. The iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max are also the first to feature a three-lens setup. That, together with the various picture modes that the iPhone 11 comes with, make it the best camera phone among all the flagship phones launched last year.
Add to that the scores of excellent photography apps available for the iPhone, which are cause for all photography enthusiasts to rejoice. We have compiled a list of 10 of the best photo apps for incredible iPhone photography.
The Enlight app is clearly one of the best photo editing apps you can have on iOS. With the sheer number of photo retouching tools that the app provides, you can wield magic with your shots. The app also impresses with its simple and uncluttered interface that is extremely easy to use even for newbies. The app isn’t free though, but you’ll love paying the $4 that it costs given the benefits that you will enjoy.
This is another app that is a must-have if you love shooting with your iPhone. It is also sort of an all-in-one app given the number of features that it offers to both edit your images as well as to add effects. In fact, the app’s interface might even look a bit crowded given the diverse range of features the app comes with. True, you may not need them all most of the time but given that the app is available for free, who’s complaining?
3. Photo Lab
The biggest USP of the Photo Lab app is the range of over 600 effects that it provides. Also, with advanced features like face detection technologies and photomontages, you can apply as many effects to your photos as you want, while still retaining the overall appeal. For instance, you can add your face on the cover of a book, or on an ancient monument and so on. The app is fun and it’s free.
The YouCam Perfect is aimed squarely at selfie addicts and provides a whole host of retouching tools and features to ensure each of your selfies is as perfect as you’d like them to be. This free app is one that you should have on your iPhone if you take your selfie-taking skills seriously.
The Edit Lab Picture app is surprisingly easy to use and has a deceptively simple interface but don’t let that stop you from discovering the real capabilities of the app. It comes with all that you will ever need to create really cool artistic renderings of any photo. The app also comes with thousands of high-quality images, which you are free to use in your artistic endeavours. No wonder, the app is a natural choice for professional photographers, artists, and designers. What’s more, it’s free too.
6. Camera+ 2
If you are looking for that one iOS app that provides some really cool manual camera controls, it’s got to be the Camera+ 2. The app is an improved version of the original and the plethora of manual controls let you play some cool tricks with the camera. The app isn’t free though, priced as it is at $3 but is well worth it
The app comes with a range of presets – more than 200 to be more precise – to liven up every photo you take. Another notable feature is the web gallery that the app comes with, along with editing tools to change exposure and colour effects while photo effect filter lets you add other great effects as well. There are sliders available with every effect as well to let you get that perfect look that you want. After all, it is not for nothing that the VSCO is the first choice for professional photographers. While the app is free, there are in-app purchases involved.
8. Afterlight 2
The Afterlight 2 comes with a host of creative options and interesting features to play around with. In fact, you can do just about anything with your photos with advanced tools such as textures, light leaks, double exposure, gradients, and curves. You can also add text or an artwork of your choice. In the end, it is well worth the $2.99 that it costs.
9. ProCam 7
The ProCam 7 is a professional-grade image editing app that can make the most of the awesome camera capabilities of the iPhone 11. Add to that the several advanced features that the app provides such as burst mode, slow shutter, portrait mode, 3D photo and so on and you have one of the best camera apps for your iPhone. The app also features filters as well as about 17 lenses such as vignette, white vignette, fisheye and more that make the app that can take care of most of your needs.
The Adobe Lightroom CC is a power-packed image editing tool that can help you work wonders with your photos. The user interface is easy and inviting but packs in a rich set of editing tools to make adjustments to your images any which way you like. The app also allows for perspective correction and selective adjustment besides having editing options such as colour mix and curves. While the app is free, it follows a subscription model if you’d like to have the experience the full functionality of the app.
