As a Blogger who is always online (like every day) on her social media accounts and actively uploading photos on Instagram is not an easy job. Yes! Blogging used to be a HOBBY for me when I was a bored stay-at-home mom a few years back and now I am proud to say that little by little I am earning now from blogging. 

Aside from FREE travels around the Philippines and other countries, I also get sponsorship from different brands, company, and even tourism boards. In return, I have to blog and post a photo on my social media accounts. I do not just take photos and post it online without using these free and paid apps

These apps are my TOP 4 PHOTO EDITOR faves:

1. VSCO 

This is my most fave app of all. It's FREE to download and some of its themes are for FREE but if you wanna get those perfect INSTAGRAM feed themes then I suggest you buy some of its theme ranging from 50 PHP / 1 USD to 1,500 PHP / 30 USD (complete theme). 


If you are not contented on your photo before you post it on your social media accounts then SNAPSEED will help you have that HIGH BRIGHTNESS background. Recently I changed my INSTAGRAM theme wherein all my photos have frames. This app can crop, framed your photos and even beautify faces. 


I accidentally downloaded this app when it was advertised on my Instagram. I paid 2 USD / 100 PHP for this app. The good thing about this app is that you can play around your photos especially if you have a lot of landscape photos because you can tweak and do a doble-exposure pictures. I fint it hard to use since I barely tweak my photos. A simple highlight and brightness for me is fine. 


One of the best computer photo editors is ADOBE LIGHTROOM, so if you forget to bring your laptop and you needed a quick fix and edit on your photos then this app is your new best friend. Not only its easy to use but the basic HSL (hue, saturation, luminance)  quick fix has it. 

So, there you have it. Do you also use these apps? Did you find it easy or hard to use? Or if you have any other mobile photo editor app that you use let me know so I can check it.

  1. wow this is so helpful! i'm always struggling to figure out how to make my photos look better. I will look into all of these, thank you!

  2. I have tried all of these and my favorite by far is the lightroom. Snapseed is what comes second to the entire set. In addition there is something called photodirector that helps with some instagram cropping. Try that out.

    1. Will check out Photodirector - thanks for the tip 🤗

  3. I use Lightroom for mobile, but otherwise most of my mobile shots are taken more for the moment than when a frame presents itself.

  4. Good list of apps. very useful for Instagram posts. Lightroom is a favourite which we use when on the go, Also use Canva which has a more range of options when on the laptop.

  5. i've never tried using apps on mobile for editing pics for my blog. Usually, i use photoshop to edit. Come to think of it, my husband does the editing on lightroom. LOL.

  6. I head about Snapseed before but I haven't use it. I've heard is good though. I need to install Lightroom as well on my phone, I use it all the time on my desktop but didn't get a chance to try on the mobile as well.

  7. This is a super helpful post for bloggers and Instagrammers, who need to play around with the photos before posting them. As of now I use photo editing capabilities of the Yi action camera app, which gives pretty good results when I don't have access to a laptop.

  8. I must admit I have never used any of these apps before. I only use Aviary and Pixlr, and I think I am ok with them. Will check these out soon and try for myself. Thanks.

  9. I'm using adobe photoshop for iphone now and it's easy to use. I also used vsco for a time but there were just too many options for me.

  10. Thank you for this. I already use VSCO and Snapseed, but not Enlight or Adobe Lightrooom (which I have heard so much about). I will definitely be checking these out. Thanks for the recommendation.

  11. There's nothing better than Adobe Photoshop for detailed works. For minor works I use Photogrid!

  12. My favorite here is Snapseed. I use it all the time and it's really easy to edit photos through this app. The one I don't get is VSCO.

  13. I am not looking for a better photo editor for my images to be used in my various blogs. I have my free photo editor which I use in resizing my raw pictures to fit with my image blog requirement. And I am using it for almost 6 years now since I started blogging sometime in 2011.


Thank you for taking a time to read my blog. For questions, and violent reactions? lol, feel free to comment.
