They say the best cameras are the ones you can take with you everywhere, and that has never been truer with smartphone cameras — which have come a long way since their inception. In this social media age, where photos can be uploaded within seconds, your trusty smartphone camera — along with some fantastic photo editing apps — can help you amp up your Instagram game.

There is a plethora of photo editing apps on the app store, which do more than just adding dog filters onto your selfies. These apps offer professional image tools for photographs you take on your travels or daily life. You can edit your photos on the go, by tweaking the lighting and hues of an image, adding film-inspired filters to create vintage-looking photos, and even sharing the pictures with other photographers online.

Whether you’re using the iPhone 7 Plus’ impressive portrait mode or the Huawei P10’s Leica lenses, here are 6 photo editing apps you need to try out — so you can take your mobile photography skills (and Instagram feed) to a whole new level. We recommend using a combination of these photo editing apps for optimum results.
