My favourite editing apps...#Blogtober14 Day23

Today we're talking about editing apps. If you want to join in on #Blogtober14 link-up with Helene & Tay, it's never too late to start! The more the merrier!
Editing photos takes up alot of time, especially when it comes to the blog.
I seriously had no idea what a mission it can be editing photos until I started this blog, sure I've worked with photoshop a couple of times but I am by no means an expert!
When it comes to editing photos for my blog I'm a picmonkey junkie!! What I love about picmonkey is the user friendliness and ease of use.

On 2 Broke Girls Max said "Twitter is stupid and Instagram is Twitter for people who can't read", that made me laugh so hard! But I love instagram, really I do. I like seeing what my friends are getting up to. You can follow me on instagram @ simmyvos.

My typical instagram process goes like this:
I take a photo using my phone camera - never the instagram camera.

I then edit it in Photo Grid, this is a free app and it's super handy. You can edit single pictures, and put a coloured background/frame around it so that the entire picture fits into the instagram frame. You can also make photogrids, collages and video slides on it. It has some awesome filters and is super easy to use.

If I want to add some words to a picture I use InstaQuote, it's a fairly simple app but has a few pretty fonts and does the job so why complicate things??

At one stage I was using Cupslice and Snapseed aswell, Cupslice is a bit limited in terms of it's capabilities while Snapseed has some really cool filters as well as editing options.

Then I go into instagram, upload my photo, hashtag away and post!!
