Phone storage has become a very real part of our lives: we’re constantly deleting data cache, duplicate photos and unused apps. So if you’re looking for the best photo editing apps that you want to use time and time again (and worth its storage space), then take a look at these apps. Find all twelve photo editing app reviews in Mollie Makes Photography

(Free) iPhone/Android

Snapseed app
Snapseed enables you to brighten, boost saturation, sharpen and antique it up. Lots of options to make your photos tons better (we love Drama mode for cloudy skies for example) before you put them through another social app to share or add more filters, such as Instagram.


Rhonna Farrer
£1.49, iPhone/Android

Rhonna Farrer app
By far the best app for adding personality to your images, with plenty of frames, masks, designs, fonts and filters that are right up our street. Add your own captions, or choose one of Rhonna’s inspiring mottos.



Bokehful app
Add pretty bokeh effects to your photos. You can change the colour, intensity and shape of the light effect – choose from circle, heart or stars (or go wild with all three) – and draw it directly onto your photo. Upload to Instragram, other social media and Flickr, plus email directly from inside the app.


A Beautiful Mess
69p, iPhone/Android

A Beautiful mess app
Sisters, Elsie and Emma took the blogging world by storm with their website of the same name – we fell in love with their fun app when it was first released. Add custom borders, doodles and text, or add your own captions in the girls’ signature style. It’s such a shame it seems to take up so much room on our gadgets – but props for doing an Android version.



PhotoBox app
We may live in a digital world, but it’s still important to have physical prints of your favourite snaps. Upload your images to your Photobox account, and have the prints delivered in a matter of days.
