These are the only photo-editing apps you'll ever need for your iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

10/10. Would use again to make photos taken by the iPhone even more awesome
These are the only photo-editing apps you'll ever need for your iPhone

We know the iPhone’s camera is consistently capable, better than the rest with very little effort.

The hardware already delivers, so how about a little software to make it all go a little farther? We’ve delivered way beyond. Here are 10 apps to make your iPhotos even more spectacular.

SKRWT (US$1.99)

These are the only photo-editing apps you'll ever need for your iPhone

What can you do with it: If a perfectly symmetrical face is the standard for beauty, it also makes sense that a perfectly symmetrical photo is too. Smartphone camera lenses tend to distort the lines of your photo, resulting in slightly warped images that’s off-putting to the professional viewer’s eye. If perfect perspective is what you’re after, SKRWT offers it up to you on a silver platter of grid lines and easily controlled toggles.

Extra costs: None. What you see is what you get. Frankly, it’s also everything you need. Pretty straight to the point, huh?

Why you should download it: You can turn fisheye photos back into normal ones. Pretty close to magic if you ask us.

Fused (Free)

These are the only photo-editing apps you'll ever need for your iPhone
These are the only iPhone photo-editing apps you need for ever

What can you do with it: Just like its name suggests, you can layer images (and video) on top of one another to create artsy masterpieces. Just like how we Fused the Eiffel tower with the inside of Singapore’s Pan Pacific hotel, creating a conversation of modern vs classic architecture (or something like that).

Extra costs: It’s not one of those pay-to-unlock-the-real-functions-of-the-app apps. However, all images that you create with this app come with a watermark. In order to remove said watermark and leave people guessing about your photoshop prowess, you will have to share the app with a friend.

Why you should download it: Have you not marveled at our thought-provoking visual interpretation of the passing trends of architecture?

Afterlight (US$0.99)

These are the only photo-editing apps you'll ever need for your iPhone

What can you do with it: Unlike the other apps, it doesn’t come with any preset filters. Instead, it offers you intimate controls into the different aspects of a photograph. Aside from the usual exposure, brightness, and saturation controls, you also get to tweak highlight-, mid-, and shadow tones to allow certain colours to pop.

Extra costs: There are no additional control packs to buy which is great because there’s already plenty provided.

Why you should download it: Every little tweak goes a long way into making your photo vastly different from the original. Tap and hold the photo to get a glimpse of the original. You’ll be surprised at how much better your edit looks even if you feel like you didn’t change much.
