Today is international camera day, and to honour the occasion we’ve put together a list of 8 of the best free photo apps for your phone. Check out the list below and spice up your phone photography with these free social, editing and camera applications.
1.Snapseed This app allows you to tweak, resize, crop, and do other general fixes to your photos. While most of the editing you’re able to do with Snapseed is simplified, it’s a great app for doing small fixes on your photos.

2.Studio Design

The perfect app for adding text, graphics, and textures to your photos. Simply upload your photo onto Studio Design and begin by choosing one of the thousands of different textures; if you can’t find one you like there are plenty more available for download. If you’re looking for more tips and tricks using Studio Design, you could join their large online community and ask for advice.


What would cellphone photography be without all the filters? PicsArt gives you plenty of filters to choose from, and you also have the option to add filters in real-time. This app also allows users to add borders, text or you could arrange a few photos into a collage.


Camera+ is a camera, and photo-editing app in one. The camera comes with features that allow you to adjust the exposure and focus before taking a photo. The editing features include textures, filters, frames, and preset borders which you can choose from after taking the photo. Camera+ also optimises your photos by adjusting to external conditions such as lighting and shadow.

5.Adobe Photoshop Express

Adobe Photoshop Express is the free to download mobile version of the popular design programme. Apart from textures, filters and borders, this app includes a ‘healing tool’. This allows you to remove unwanted blemishes or smudges from your photos with the touch of a button.

6. Instagram

This popular photo-sharing has taken the world by storm. With over 300 million active users, Instagram is the most widely used photo app across the globe. Instagram allows you to take photos, add filters and then share them with your friends and other people using hashtag functionality.

7. Filterstorm Neue

This app is great for those looking for a more intermediate to advanced photo app. Along with the standard filters and other editing functions, Filterstorm Neue comes with advanced features such as tone mapping, curving and level manipulation. The blending function allows you to add different filters and other tools to a single photo, or to only apply effects to a selected part of the photo.

8.VSCO Cam

Available for iPhone and Android, this app recently became free to download and comes with a wide range of filters and photo effects. If you’re looking for even more VSCO editing tools, there are a variety of filters and effects for sale.
