Of late, camera apps have tried to add an element of editing features too, with filters and modes. Even most social networking apps have very few options when it comes taking advantage of your phone’s camera, by allowing some amount of edits. However, there are a bunch of fun editing apps that will really spice up your photos and videos. These apps are available for Android and iOS.

FaceApp is a unique camera app that uses Artificial Intelligence.

FaceApp

Free

Android, iOS

This is a unique camera app that uses Artificial Intelligence to make people in photos smile, add wrinkles to make young look older, make the old look younger and make a man look like woman or a woman like a man. Users can save their results, share them on social media and even combine their favourite photos to create a photo collage. It’s only limitation is that it requires active internet connection to work. So if you are on slow network it will take more time to load filters and apply.

Selfie on Tilt

Free

iOS

This photo app takes advantage of your phone’s rear camera which in most cases is better than the front camera. The app uses your phone’s accelerometer to tell when a photo has been clicked. Once you pose it will take a shot by itself and will let you know that a picture has been taken by vibrating the phone. User can choose from a bevy of 13 unique filters. One can also adjust colour brightness, contrast levels, rotate images and add drawings on their photos. The app is free to use but one can upgrade to premium version for $0.99.

What makes PicsArt unique is that users don’t always have to rely on preloaded content to create an animation, but can create one if their own.

PicsArt’s latest app allows users to make their ordinary photos look lively by adding GIFs, text, unique filters, colours and audio over it. What makes it unique is that users don’t always have to rely on preloaded content to create an animation, but can create one if their own. User can decide the duration and the pace at which the animation will play. Once saved, one can share the animation on all major social media platforms from the app itself.
