iOS 8 brings with it an awesome new ability to pull filters, editing tools, and lots more from your favorite photo editing and filter apps. However, it requires that developers support the feature in order for it to work. Luckily, there are already a handful of really great ones available that can give you a wide range of tools to use without ever having to leave the Photos app. So if you're only concerned with the best iPhone apps where photo extensions are concerned, these six apps should definitely be on your short list!
Litely has some of the best subtle filters that aim to enhance your photos rather than change them completely. Not only can you access them all inside the Photos app now, you can also hop into the Litely app when you want a better idea of how filters impact your photos in order to see split screen views, crop however you'd like and even more.
If you want a selection of tasteful filters that aren't overdone right at your fingertips, get Litely.
Halftone 2 lets you turn your photos into comic book pages in just seconds, and can you honestly tell me anything that's more fun that turning your dog into a superhero? Yeah, I didn't think so. Right now only filter support is available via extensions, which means you can add all kinds of textures and overlays. However, if you want to add captions and multiple images per page, you'll need to switch over to using the dedicated Halftone 2 app itself.
If comic book filters are your thing, you'll love the photo filter extensions available via Halftone 2.
Fragment can add a unique twist, turn, and shuffle to any photo. You can choose between tons of different kinds of effects both inside the Fragment app and via photo extensions in the Photos app. You can even add one effect and then overlay others if you'd like. Once you're happy with the array of prisms that you've chosen, you're good to, or you can of course use other photo extensions to edit even further.
If you like textures and architecture, Fragment is definitely a photo editing app you want to have in your arsenal.
Afterlight features not only filters, but lots of correction tools and textures that you can add to your photos. And with the most recent update, pretty much every tool Afterlight offers in their app is now available inside the Photos app itself. For anyone whose ever used Afterlight, you understand how much power that puts at your fingertips. Adjust highlights, midtones, saturation, and so much more. Combine the power of Afterlight with iOS' native correction tools and the possibilities are limitless.
For adjustment tools and filters that are just as easy to use as they are powerful, look no further than Afterlight.
Camera+ has some of the most advanced editing tools packed into one app that you could ask for. Thanks to photo extensions, you have access to quick fixes, granular adjustments, and much more. Basically, anything you can do in the Camera+ app is now available to you via the Photos app. That even includes staple features such as Clarity Pro.
For advanced editing tools, filters, and more all in one, Camera+ is a must-have.
Quick lets you add text to your photos, which basically means on the go memes. You can choose between several different types of fonts and even purchase more via in-app purchase if you'd like. You'll also need to pay for premium via in-app purchase if you'd like to remove the quick watermark. Regardless of premium status, you'll have access to all of Quick's tools inside the Photos app itself which makes for a great way to add text in a pinch.
If you need to add text to photos often, Quick lets you do it without ever leaving the Photos app.
