iOS 8 added a new photo extension feature that lets you access lots of your favorite edits right inside the Photos app. That means you can not only correct red eye but add your favorite filters, apply text overlays, and lots more all in one place. Lots of photography apps have updated to support photo extensions but if you're only concerned with the best iPhone apps, these are the ones you should check out right now!
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+ is one of our favorite replacement camera apps for iPhone. Partly because it has such great editing tools to go along with it. Now those tools are available right inside the Photos app through photo extensions. Choose from lots of different presets or manually edit your photos to get just the right result you want. The Clarity HD feature also gives your photos a nice punch that really makes them stand out. My favorite part about Camera+ extensions and the app itself is that it's easy enough for anyone to use but packs a lot of features for advanced users too.
For an all in one photo editing, extensions sharing, camera replacement app, Camera+ is best in class.
Litely has some of the best subtle filters that 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.
Effects Studio lets you overlay images on top of other preset images to create something unique. As for photo extensions, Effects Studio offers quite a few filters through the Photos app that are as simple to use as tap and apply. The layout of the actual app is quite different from other photos apps and is simple to use. The filters and overlays can be as dramatic or as subtle as you'd like them to be, which makes Effects Studio a versatile choice.
If you fancy image overlays and want a better filter selection via photo extensions, check out Effects Studio.
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.
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.
