Today in the blog we’re talking phone apps! So many of you are always asking me what my favorite apps are. Especially when it comes to photo editing. So today in the blog I’m sharing my top 3 phone apps for editing photos! Hope you guys love them as much as I do!
I have to start with Filmborn because it might be my favorite iPhone photo editing app ever! In fact, my super talented photographer Ashley Burns is the one who recommended it to me. She shoots a ton of my photos and I wanted my photos that she doesn’t shoot to look similar to the beautiful photos she captures! Obviously, they’ll never be quite as good as hers because she’s ridiculously talented but I wanted at least the same feel. That’s when she introduced me to Fillmborn. It gives such a nice light and airy feeling to all of your photos! My favorite way to use it is to take photos using my professional camera and then upload them to my phone and brighten them up in this app.
Another favorite phone app of mind for photo editing is FaceTune. And not for the reasons you think. No I don’t use it to take away pimples or alter my figure. I use it for two things and two things only. First, I use it to put a white border around my photos to give my Instagram feed an overall light and airy feel. Instagram has a version of a white border but it was too thick for my taste and I really like the thin border at that FaceTune offers.
And the second feature on FaceTune that I use a TON is the teeth whitening feature! But no, not to whiten my teeth. I honestly think I’ve used it to whiten my teeth once ever in my life! And I didn’t even like how it came out because I thought my teeth looked WAY too white. That said, I use it to whiten other things in my photos. Take the example of the breastfeeding photo I posted a few days ago to Instagram. The photo on the left is obviously the before photo and the photo on the right is after I used the teeth whitening feature to whiten the walls and brighten up the photo. So cool right? It’s also really great for whitening any white clothes you’re wearing or to make dingy bed sheets look lighter! I also cleaned up my wedding dress! Ha!
If you don’t get Filmborn this is my second favorite photo editing app. I like it because there are so many different features you can use to edit the feel of a photo. And it’s all easy to understand! For example one of the filters is called “lights on” and it instantly makes your photo lighter and brighter! You could also cool down the tones of a photo that feels too warm in color. Or by contrast, warm up a photo that feels like it has too many cool tones. Its $1.99 FYI.
Bonus Fave App for Mommys – Baby Connect – Ok this isn’t a phone editing app but I wanted to share it anyway for all the moms reading this! Especially if you’re pregnant or a brand new mommy to an infant. Baby Connect is an app that I bought when Molly was born and I’ve used it every single day since! And not just once a day but multiple times a day. In the beginning when she was an infant, I think I was on it up to 30 times a day. And the cool thing about it is that you can sync the app with someone else. So when Kevin would update the app on his phone, I would get the updates in my version of the app too. We used it to track Molly’s sleep, wet and dirty diapers, how long she was nursing, and so much more! Heck we still use it to track Molly’s sleep and she’s 13 months old now! I just stopped using it to track breastfeeding since I stopped nursing a few weeks ago.
Let me know if you guys use any of these apps and what you think of them in the comments below! Or if you get one because of this post, let me know if you luv it as much as I do!
