Top 10 Photo Editing Apps for Travel Influencers

Travel Photographer

There’s no denying that most travel itineraries today are dictated by Instagram-worthy spots. Thanks to smartphones with near professional-grade cameras, many people have become travel influencers with enviable feeds filled with lush landscapes, colorful temples, tropical beaches, and the like. 

But those beautiful photos aren’t achieved after just a click of the camera. Many photographers still rely on the trusty photo & video editing tools to get that double-tap worthy grid. 

If you’re still on the hunt for the best app, here are the top 10 photo editing apps for travel influencers:

1. Instasize

Early content creators can thank Instasize for addressing the square-sized dilemma Instagram had years ago. Today, the app offers a robust selection of editing tools and filters to help you achieve your desired aesthetic. 

With the app’s user-friendly interface, you can easily make your colors pop by adjusting the exposure and brightness, or play around with shadows and highlights to add a dramatic effect. 

You can even combine multiple filters for an effortless and unique look and add some text to create a digital postcard.

2. VSCO 

Ask any travel influencer what their go-to photo editing app is and VSCO will probably be the most common answer. Its presets, which need little to no adjustments, could make any ordinary travel photo Instagram-worthy in an instant. Of course, you can also adjust the presets to your liking and make further edits with the standard editing tools.

3. Made

Made is a storytelling toolkit specifically created for Instagram Stories and other similar formats. 

By understanding the creative process of content creators, Made was able to provide a seamless story editing experience.

4. Adobe Lightroom

Adobe Lightroom is practically the handy version of Photoshop. The app version packs all the editing tools you’ll need to achieve the perfect travel photo.

6. Pixlr

Pixlr is an advanced photo editing tool that is quick and easy to use. What’s best is that you are forever spoiled for choice with its two-million variations of free filters, effects, and overlays.

Vintage photos will never go out of style, but not just any camera can achieve that vibe.

Snapseed is a powerful photo editing app often compared to the likes of Adobe. With its advanced yet easy-to-use tools, both amateur and professional photographers can fine-tune their work while on-the-go. 

With the app, you can start with basic adjustments like saturation and size and move to more advanced edits like color-correcting, and “healing”. 

  • Price: Free

9. Slow Shutter Cam

If you ever wondered how to capture those overhead shots with traffic lights perfectly blurred, you’d be surprised to know that you don’t need a professional camera. With Slow Shutter Cam you can easily take long exposure photos to capture motion, perfect for shots of twinkling lights or the rush of water. 

While you can’t really alter the shutter speed of your phone’s camera like a DSLR, the app does a pretty good job mimicking the effect.

  • Availability: iOS and Android

10. PhotoPills

More than just a simple photo editing app, Photo Pills was designed to be an all-in-one app for smartphone photographers.
