Photo and video editing: the apps you need

By Merche Diaz

Keeping our profiles neat and sharp, and uploading stuff that looks all professional and HD is something we all want to make sure we do right, so to impress and enhance our ordinary daily lives.

Photo and video editing apps are not a secret, yet they may feel incredibly complicated for first-time users (aka: cannot be arsed to).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Fear not! Suffer no longer! Behold, here are the highlighted apps that our photographer and designer, use both daily and on assignments:

Photoshop Express (so far, only for iPeople): the great thing about it is that you can edit photos you have either on your phone, computer or tablet without the needing to transfer.

Layout (iTunes+Android+Google Play): best to create a collage that will fit and don’t get cut on Instagram or any other places.

EyeEm (iTunes+Android+Google Play): best filters to get a natural, not overdone final touch. Also, you are able to enter different, weekly contests as well as placing your photos in the ‘market’ to allow companies and organizations to buy them.

Fused (iTunes + Android + Google Play): app that allows you to create new images or videos, out of fusing two different photos/ videos together . Therefore, creates a nice effect of something original and very visual.

Extra tips! For fast edits when you want/ got to post a photo asap go straight to these: saturation (keep to a medium towards minimum) and sharpening (increase this pass medium point, but keeping an eye not to make the photo look granulated).

For quick, snappy videos use either Instagram or Vine. But if you want to edit a video real quick use VivaVideo: which is so far, the easiest app to create, edit and share short films.

Fyuse: (iTunes + Android + Google Play): this one is a bit tricky yet for sure the future of photos. It allows you to take a 3D photo, so when you rotate your phone the picture moves with you (but this effect only works within the app itself). You can export it and still share it on your social media, but it will become a video instead of a 3D photograph.
