It has been a year or so since I’ve written a post about mobile photography and editing apps, so I figured now would be a good time to revisit the topic and share with you some of my latest app obsessions. Most of these are available for both iPhone and Android.
Ever want to upload your photos to Instagram as rectangles and not squares (I do, all the time…)? Instasize will do just that!
If you are becoming a serious mobile photographer, you will want to capture and save your images in an appropriate file format, just as you would on your DSLR. PureShot gives you the ability to save your images as either high quality JPEGs, or even a TIFF file, which is perfect for printing.
I love multiple exposures in film photography, and Image Blender helps me simulate that very same effect from my phone. What’s great about this app is that it gives you control over the final result of your image through blending modes and masks which allow you to tweak the image until you are satisfied.

Much like Image Blender, Diana Photo uses multiple exposures to create fun and unique images. You can either choose the two images you would like to use for your double exposure, or you can shake your phone, and let the app choose for you! In addition to the double exposure feature, there are also plenty of filters to choose from within the app.
One of my favorite apps in the world is the 8mm app for video. My husband, Evan, and I were watching the Lana Del Rey “Summertime Sadness” video the other day, and we both swear that the video was made using the 8mm app!
Even if it wasn’t made with the 8mm app, it looks pretty darn similar, and your home movies can look just as amazing using the 8mm app, which comes with filters to make your videos look like they were shot in the 60’s on 8mm film. It even has a black and white, silent movie type filter!
What are some of your favorite photography apps? I am just now falling in love with mobile photography and editing, so I would love to hear what you have to say! Also, please feel free to follow my adventures on Instagram, where I post a combination of iPhone and film photos, all of which I edit using the above apps!
