Nowadays, it is incredibly simple to edit photographs with an iPad, producing results that are highly similar to what you could get on a desktop computer. Various apps were created to help those that had different photo editing needs, with some being much better than others. With this in mind, here are some that you surely want to consider.
This app does seem to do everything for you and offers endless creative control and editing options. Pixelmator allows you to use various different photo editing options like color correction presents, facial editors and more. The iPad basically becomes your very own canvas, allowing you to choose out of over 100 brushes and more. You can use an image editor that is much more impressive than what many expect. All this for just $7, which is a much lower price than what you would pay for a desktop app that would do similar things.
Since we are talking about photo editing programs, you surely expected that Adobe had something on the list. Adobe Lightroom for iPhone and iPad takes full advantage of Photoshop technology in order to edit and create great images, important pictures, capture photos and all from the iPad screen. So many people that use creative inspiration apps then use Adobe Lightroom to bring their ideas to life, all through a free app. Paid extras are available if you want even more than what the free version offers.
Snapseed is a free app that includes many tools allowing you to make photo modifications. There are various really fast filters you can use and some features that are incredibly precise. While the app initially started as an indie project, it eventually became a huge hit. It was created to edit RAW photographs, including great tools like brush, HDR, crop, transform, healing, white balance and a lot more. If you want to add more advanced features, it is possible.
When all you really want from your iPad photo editing app is to add filters or you just want to create some quick content for social media use, VSCO is the app for you. It does not have highly precise photo editing abilities, including just 15 editing options, it is more than enough for those interested. The biggest advantage of this app is that it has great filters. You can download it for free and extra filters can be purchased if you want to.
Most people already heard about Prisma, an art-imitating editing app that is installed on millions of devices from all around the world. You just have to upload a photo and then add a filter. The problem is obviously that you can just choose out of some pre-set artist filters but there are various future updates that are planned.
Every single photo editing app above is great for those interested in creating something special in a really short time frame and there are countless others that exist on the market. Check as many as you can to find the one that you like the most.
