The Best Freakin' Photo Editing App
I thought everyone had heard of Pic-Tap-Go, but after chatting with another boss babe this weekend and hearing about the (lengthy) process she goes through editing her iphone pics I had to bring it up again.
You can get Pic-Tap-Go in the App store for $1.99 and it will be the ONLY photo editing app you'll ever need to open once you get your paws on it. Yup, I don't use VSCO or Insta Filters or PicLab or anything else you might have heard of. Pic-Tap-Go is the only app I can get the light bright, colorfully true, slightly pink, crisp photos that I know and love. You can develop (and save) your own editing style inside the app, lower effects of the filters, layer and take away and even try black and white.
Let me show you how it works.
First head to the App store and download this baby. Then scroll through your photo library to select the image you'd like to work on.
Once you have the image you can scroll through the filters without even having to click on them. Each box shows you a preview of what that filter will look like at full strength. I always start with "lights on" and turn it down slightly to not blow out the image. Use the slider at the bottom to turn the strength of the filters up or down.
Next I start to layer different filters. I love that when I slide down from the image it lets me view all the filters before I have to commit to one. I usually choose Awake or Air for a slightly pink tint then Cool It Down to not have the image so orange-y. I turn down one of these so it's really low and not blowing out the image.
Then I usually finish with High Fives. It give the image a nice crisp, contrast and matte look. Because it's strong I usually turn it down really low. If at any time you're trying a filter and you don't like it just hit undo to go back to the previous screen or hold down your finger on the image to view the "before" and lift to view the "after".
Once you're satisfied click "go" and the screen will pop up with your options to export or save. I have always just saved to camera roll because I like to have the edited version on my phone. If you're low on storage space you could always export directly to Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.
Here is the before and after of the image we just edited! It took me less than 20 seconds to get it to the end result!
Here are some more examples of how great Pic-Tap-Go can be for all your images. Need a totally white out space? This app can do it. Need more tones and cropped in? This app can do it.
I love being able to edit inside just one app because not only does it save me time, but you can begin to establish an editing style. Being consistent in your online images is key to brand building and overall aesthetics. Happy editing!
