    I’m boring, I just use instagram and then sometimes edit photos on the computer in Picasa or Picmonkey.

    Oh my gosh, I didn’t realise there were sooo many editing tools out there. I’ve been using PicMonkey and absolutely love it, but will definitely have to check out some of these as well. Thanks for sharing!

      Anytime!!! PicMonkey is great – but the others are SO good too! Particularly Canva – I really love Canva!

    Yup! All the apps are wonderful, I also have been using the afterlight, before I founc PicsArt mobile photo editor! Now I do use only PicsArt, as it has all the features and tools packed in one editor and I do not have to edit the same photo in different apps to get the result I desire. That’s simple and very comfortable and also doesn’t take much place on my phone!!!
