adelynSTONE: VSCOcam | Afterlight | Camera+ > must have photo editing apps | Image Effects, Filters, Masks and Other Image Processing Methods | Scoop.it

There are usually 3 steps I go through before posting a picture to Instagram, which include opening the picture in 3 apps.


Camera+ (this step is only used on occasion)
This is a great app to add some intensity to your photos. Sometimes when I take photo's of a sunset or snap a shot of the ocean, it doesn't show through my phone as vibrant as it looks in real life. There are only 2 filters (scenes) I use in this app, either Clarity (beachy pics) and Sunset.

Kitty Fisher's insight:

Seeing the difference in which app, you open your image in. Can be the deal breaker between if you want to post the photo or not. These 3 various decisions will save you some time, in what you would like to see as a result in your image.

Google wants to give all Android users (or at least those running Android 4.4 and up) the opportunity to use a camera app designed by the same people who made the operating system, and so the company has decided to release a standalone ‘Google Camera’ app packed with a few features that will make it a very tempting download at the price of “on the house.”
