Top 10 Photo Editing Apps for Your Small Business

Posting on the fly? Whether you're launching a product or taking a corporate selfie, you can quickly upload with your phone if you want to. While using desktop apps and an SLR camera deliver superior results, there are many photo editing apps to help you edit something fast. Here's a list of some of the best:

1. Instagram

Of course, the Instagram app itself is pretty good at editing pictures. You can take pictures with your regular camera, then edit your favorite on the app. It's especially good at altering color and brightness. 

2. PicsArt Photo Studio

Offers a wide variety of editing tools, including collages with multiple images. A drawing tool allows you to doodle on pictures or paint blank canvases with brushes and everything.

3. PhotoGrid – Collage Maker

Another free app, PhotoGrid is good for creating collages with pre-edited pictures.

4. Pixlr

Pixlr provides the basic tools you need for editing filters. Fun stickers are added seasonally to a limited filter set that comes standard with the app. It has many useful tools, including a healing tool, brightening brush, adjustable focus tool, and auto correct.

5. Facetune

If you're posting office selfies, then you'll want Facetune. This app is great for removing blemishes, evening skin tone, lightening wrinkles, and whitening teeth.

6. Snapseed

Offers the nifty little ability to selectively alter specific parts of your picture with a very feathered spot tool. This allows you to make changes to your whole photo, or just certain parts of it.

7. Adobe Photoshop Express

This is a simplified app version of Photoshop. It's easier to use, but far less sophisticated. On the bright side, it integrates well with Adobe programs, and can handle RAW file formats.

8. VSCO Camera

This free app has a simple editing interface that works well to correct your images in a traditional way.

9. Photoristic

Costs less than $3 and offers some very basic photo editing tools with a simple interface.

10. Photo Editor by Aviary

This one is a very simple photo editing app that doesn’t take itself too seriously. It's especially helpful on the tablet screen.

All of these can be used in conjunction with Brandr – the go-to app for social media branding. Adding logos, watermarks, or brand messages will prime your photos for optimum impact.
