With that in mind, I thought I’d share my five favourite camera and photography related apps that I use constantly, every day. I even use these to process photos before getting them printed for my scrapbook or to be framed!

Ah that blogger favourite. I guess 90% of those reading this post already know of and/or use VSCOCAM but it’s still my most reached-for app. This app has its very own bona fide sharing platform and store for more filters, but I use it primarily to filter photographs, crop them to my heart’s desire and have them laid out in grid format so I can almost ‘preview’ what my Instagram feed will look like. Secret: I usually store about 3-4 days worth of snaps here and edit while I’m queuing or commuting.
A close second for my favourite apps, ailis is where I add all of my cutesy stickers and whatnot. I realise that the stickers aren’t to everybody’s tastes but if you know me, you’ll know I adore the kitsch and the kawaii! I usually filter with White Cat, Latte, Memory or Baby and scatter My Melody, Hello Kitty, LINE or Pokemon stickers atop photos through this app. My only qualm with this app is that it seems to hugely reduce the quality without giving you a second option.
This one will prove popular with my fellow quote-happy gals! Another filter/editing app, I don’t find the filters appeal to me at all but the quote selection pleases my Monday morning self oh so much. I recently used this to create a three-segment divided snap which went down well, but I tend to use this for a cheesy ol’ quote like in the photo for this post.
Not as much to rave about with this one, but I adore the variety of filters on this app. There are plenty to choose from to fit in with whichever theme you’re doing for the week 😉 it’s a little fiddly to get to grips with at first but a nice option for those photos you take in weird lighting.
5. Kiwi Camera
Kiwi Camera is unique in that you can shoot with a filter applied to the camera. I guess it’s a little gimmicky but also super fun to view the world through literal rose-tinted glasses! The photo quality is fine but overall I’d prefer to shoot normally and filter normally.
Oh, and if you’re wondering how I have a thin border on my photos, I use InstaSquareMaker and tap once on the border setting.
