Enlight has an extensive collection of basic and advanced
editing tools, as well as a selection of more whimsical and
artistic effects for getting really creative with your images. The
Mask tool allows you to apply effects to selected parts of your
image, leaving the rest of the photo unaltered. With so many
features, this app can take a bit of time to fully understand, but
each tool is very intuitive in how it works. Additionally, Enlight
has one of the best built-in Help features available in any photo-editor app. Whether you want to perform a simple edit or
create an artistic masterpiece, you can do it all within Enlight.

If you want to get more creative and start compositing multiple images into a single photo, one of the best apps to use
is Superimpose. If you’re not already familiar with masking
and layering images, this app does require a bit of experimentation to learn, but it really isn’t that hard and can be mastered
in less than 30 minutes. You can use Superimpose for a wide
range of compositing effects, from simply removing an unwanted background from your image to creating truly unique
compositions and double-exposure photos. With this app,
you’re only limited by your imagination!
Whether you’re brand new to iPhone photography or simply
looking for a new photo-editor app to add to your collection,
hopefully this list has given you some inspiration for new apps
to try out.
Many apps now offer the ability to remove unwanted elements from a photo, but TouchRetouch is dedicated solely to
this purpose and it’s still one of the easiest and most effective
to use. Using your finger, you can quickly and easily highlight
the objects (or parts of objects) that you want to remove. The
app then automatically removes the selection, replacing that
area with pixels from the surrounding area. Removing more
complicated elements may take a few tries to get it perfect,
but TouchRetouch makes it easy to start over if you’re not happy with the results.
One drawback of having a fixed wide-angle lens on the
iPhone is that it often results in somewhat distorted shots
where the image looks bent or stretched. This is a common
issue with all manner of wide-angle lenses. It’s most noticeable
with architectural photos of tall buildings where the lines appear to converge toward the top. With SKRWT, you can quickly
and easily correct these distortions and straighten converging
lines. There are other apps that offer this type of functionality,
including Snapseed and Enlight, but SKRWT is solely focused
on this type of editing and is still one of the best options.
