11. Prequel

If you’re looking for artsy effects, this is the app for you: it’s free and gives you tons of fun photo presets for both photos and videos.

This app provides you with everything from moody film noir-style effects to adorable stickers (this preset is titled “Cutie”).


Prequel Premium is $6.49/ week (that comes out to around $340/ year). And you will have access to all effects and filters, advanced editing tools, a retouch toolkit, and weekly app updates.

12. PicCollage

PicCollage is a collage-making app that’s very simple to use (though be warned, the free version does stamp a small watermark onto your final edit).

A multitude of grids and templates are available in various shapes and sizes in this app. You can change the brightness/contrast/etc in each individual image in the grid.

PicCollage VIP costs $48/ year. It earns you watermark-less collages and unlocks exclusive fonts, features, and stickers.

13. Instasize

Instasize is free and provides the same kinds of filters and editing tools that other apps do. However, one of its most special features is resizing images specifically for Instagram.

Before the editing process begins, you choose the best size dimensions for the photo (a square post, landscape, Instagram story, etc.) to make sure that none of your hard work gets cut off once the image is published.
