This article is too good not to share.  I have been so photo crazy on my travels the past few weeks and new editing apps are always welcome with me…

Picture Perfect – The best apps for likeable snaps

20130920_photoapps_610

Are you a Valencia chick? Or maybe you’re more of a Low-Fi gal. Or of course, you could be an X-Pro type of girl with blurred edges and #nofilter. (The modern day equivalent of stuffing your bra and wearing colored contacts.)

Either way, if you’re like us, you’re totally ub-sessed with Instagramming. We’re not sure what it is, but something about taking a seemingly blasé picture of our cat looking out a window and turning it into something out of a hipster’s dream makes us want to put on a pair of square-framed glasses and scream to the world, “We love Instagram!”

But being the complicated women that we are, we need more. That’s right, 19 filters just ain’t enough. We find ourselves scouring the App store for the latest and greatest in photo-editing tools until we’re full-on filter junkies. But #sorrynotsorry, we’re not slowing down anytime soon. That’s why we’re bringing you the best picture-editing tech to take your posts from two likes, to Popular Page! (Results not guaranteed.)

Here are the photo editing apps that we’re really “liking” right now!
