I love making my photos more unique before I post them on Instagram. I use the Aviary app to crop and brighten photos. I use the PhotoGrid app to create collages and add borders. And I use the Prisma app to make my photos look like paintings. That's a lot of apps!
But Enlight does all of that and then some! It's the photo editing app to end all other apps! It's not free, but it pays for itself if you use social media to advertise your products and services. Or if you're just really into Instagram photography.
Add a little something extra!
The app comes with a bunch of filters for your photos and you can adjust each one so that it makes your picture look exactly how you want it to look. Then you can add decals of cute sayings or type your own text over a photo. Use "Instafit" so that the photo has the right dimensions for Instagram. You can also add colorful frames and backgrounds or use several photos to create a collage.
Edit so that it looks just right!
You can fine tune your photo's properties so that it stands out among all the other pictures your followers scroll past. Adjust the color temperature, contrast and exposure to make it pop. Crop tilt and rotate photos so that people focus on the photo's subject. You can even reshape an object to make it funky or fix imperfections.
If you really want to have some fun with your photos then try out the artistic features. You can use "Mixer" to overlay and blend two photos. "Painting," "Urban," and "Sketch" are three filters that morph your photo into artwork. And with "Effects," you can add bubbles, confetti and other charming details.
You get all of these amazing features for only $3.99. Even Apple, Inc. approves! They called it "the best all-in-one photo editor" because it "provides powerful tools that are easy to use."
Unfortunately, this app only works on iPhones and iPads. But there is a free app for Android devices called Enlight, Optical Digital Flare. You can use it to create and save your own custom filters. Click the blue buttons below to download Enlight or Enlight, Optical Digital Flare.
