What’s your favorite photo filter app?

Posted Apr 05, 2012 at 1:22 pm in Threads > Opinions

Tell us about your favorite photo filter/editor app and why you like it!

I will start off with my favorits:
Magic Hour:
My first photo filter app. Nice interface and you could make your own templates if you don’t like the built in templates. No social integration if I’m not mistaken.

Snaptastic:
Best photo-editing app I’ve ever used for now! No presets like magic hour but you can do much more changes. Great UI also. No social integration

Camera360:
More of a camera app but it does have a lot of amusing photo effects.

Instagram:
Who would’ve thought I would choose this one?
Great social integration and easy to use. Does only have about 15 filters and not much option to customize like snaptastic.

    started using the vignette demo app, only played with it a little so far. Have yet to try instagram

    for me I have been using “Camera360″ for a long time now photo effects are not bad . I also tried “PicPlz” it has social integration in it and everything its not bad but still limited set of effects and the thing is after “Instagram” was relsesed I found out the “PicPlz” and “Instagram” are really similar you should give it a try.

    Snaptastic, Pixlr-o-Matic and Instagram are the best by a long shot.

    I suggest “Miniature Photo Lab Pro”.

    it has nice effect and no need to crop the image.

    Personally, I like Picsay Pro. The amount of options is almost too much. Faux HDR, spot brightness control, inserting text bubbles (like in the comics) are all stuff I use. It’s got options for sharing with social networks, you aren’t limited to whichever one they choose.
    Picsay Pro is hands down the most versatile of the ones I’ve tried.

      Apparently, I need to read things twice before posting.
      The only “just filter” I use is the one in Path. I don’t have any friends there but the fact that I can pass it along to Facebook is a bonus. I’m still angry at Instagram for taking so long with getting around to Android.

        haha, other apps than filter apps is just fine :)
        Snaptastic isn’t a filter app either.. haven’t had the time to try out picsay.. will try as soon as I can =)

    After focus is awesome.

    have to admit, instagram.

    I have been using Camera ZOOM FX. Has plenty of filters and effects, albeit they are additional downloads. No social integration as far as I know which is a major plus!

    I would much prefer to take a plain “stock” photo with my phone and then edit it with PC software, but Camera ZOOM FX works in a pinch if I want to send something right away when I am not near a real computer.

    I’ve never been a big fan of any of these types of apps. But when I do use one it is Instagram, just because a lot fo my friends are already on it. A large user base goes a long way.

    Little photo!!! Best ever

  • sns

    I think Pixlr Express, ’cause I only use that and Instagram. But I prefer Magic Hour, ugh its amazing :/
    Do you know any app that Magic Hour-like? Magic Hour doesn’t available available on Android.

    Instagram for the straightforward filters, Snapseed/PicSay Pro if I want to tweak the look any.

  • lou2cool88

    I enjoy Snapseed, Instagram, and even the stock photo editing features in Jelly Bean 4.2.2. I use Perfectly Clear for some quick touch-ups, though.
