Welcome to our Top Five Photo Apps – Photo App Lounge section of theappwhisperer.com. This is an area on our site where we ask highly accomplished mobile photographers what their top five photo apps are and why.
We previously published the Top Five Photo Apps as recommended by Yannick Brice , Cedric Blanchon, Irene Sneddon, Sarah Jarrett, Louise Fryer, Lisa Waddell, Davide Capponi, Ali Jardine, Clint Cline, Elaina Wilcox, France Freeman, Tess Gomm, Lola Mitchell, Vivi, Em Kachouro, Laetitia Harnie-Coussau, MaryJane Sarvis, AlyZen Moonshadow, Ginaluca Ricoveri, Jennifer Sharpe, Natali Prosvetova, David Hayes, Vanessa Vox and Robin Robertis’ Top Five Photo Apps including accompanying images demonstrating these selections, if you missed those, please go here.
Today, we are featuring Andrea Koerner, an artist we have featured many times within theappwhisperer.com, particularly our weekly curated Flickr Group Showcases. Koerner is a very talented artist and you can see more of here work, within her website here. It’s a true delight to read of her top five apps in this article, she’s a self confessed ‘app addict’.
We think you’ll enjoy this as Koerner talks us through her favourite apps and explains why, don’t miss this.
Number One: Grungetastic
Grungetastic a terrific app that lets you add all sorts of grunge effects from heavy to light. You can adjust each effect changing the intensity, color and texture. Add a frame or add paper textures/colors. A very versatile app i find myself coming back to all the time.
Number Two: MPro
My next favorite app is Mpro which is a black and white camera app i have been experimenting with recently working with lighting so see how various types of light affects the exposure of the photo. I have recently been doing a lot of high contrast photos which i have been using as a
basis for my edits.
Number Three: Smoosh
My third favorite app is Smoosh an image distorting app that i have been using a lot lately on my self-portrait edits. Whether it’s altering the photo to change the hair or distorting the facial features it allows you to adjust the size of the distortion and how fluid it is. This app is inspired
by the process of Polaroid SX-70 film manipulation.
Number Four: Jazz
My fourth favorite app is Jazz a photo editing app that has a wide range of effects. You can adjust the color, add lighting effects, add texture and so much more.
Number Five: Superimpose
My fifth favorite app is Superimpose a powerful app the lets you superimpose one photo over another, do double exposures, add elements. Lots of ways to mask your images and 18 blending modes.
This last photo was done using Jazz, Superimpose and Grungetastic.
