photo editing with apps
Hello friends! Today we are just getting to Australia and settling in. I scheduled this post (and pretty much all of my posts) ahead of time so my blog isn’t like chirping crickets while I’m away. Be sure to follow my overseas happenings as I share live updates on what we’re doing, where we’re going, and who we’re seeing in Australia for the next week and a half.
I wanted to share with you something that I do every single day. It’s part of my daily routine and efforts to cultivate a good life and record it.
I take pictures on my iPhone 5S every single day. I know many of you are in that daily habit, as well. In fact, my dSLR only lands in my hands about once a month or so. My day-to-day capturing happens on the device that is with me all the time. Therefore, it’s my favorite camera. Never before have we been able to so instantly capture moments and have instant results and phenomenal quality.
The icing on the cake for me is that now, with so many awesome photo-editing apps available, we can quickly, easily, and conveniently edit the photos right there in our phone, instead of having to bring them up into some software on our computer when we’re back home sitting at the desk.
I’m a fan of quick, easy, and convenient. And I’m a fan of making my photos look their best.
This is not a photo-editing app review. I’m not sharing my specific experience with 10 different apps because quite frankly, I haven’t tried that many in depth. I just use the one that works for me and right now, it’s PicTapGo. This is not a sponsored post. I am simply sharing my current favorite go-to photo-editing app, which could certainly change down the road if something better comes along. For now, I’m pretty darn pleased with what I can do to improve my everyday pictures in an instant.
I’ll let the pictures in the rest of this speak for themselves. Below each photo I mention the name(s) of the filter(s) that I tapped for each respective photo. Sometimes just one filter. Sometimes I do 2 or 3 filters to get the look I’m going for. And it’s all live preview while you’re editing so there’s no guessing. It’s a beautiful thing. Just like bacon. Bacon’s a beautiful thing, isn’t it?

Some of you who follow me on social media may be thinking, “Of course she added a sunset picture!” How could I not? I am regularly capturing sunset pictures on my iPhone and most of the time, I give them a quick 10-second edit to enhance the image. I love it. And of course I share these sunset photos on social media.
All of these photos are taken by me, on my iPhone 5S, and edited with the PicTapGo app. Next step? Print and place into a Project Life® album, of course. If you have experience with a favorite photo-editing app, please share in the comments! I’d love to hear what’s working for you.
