I love taking photos and videos as much as I enjoy editing them. I’m always looking for different apps to download when the Instagram filters just aren’t enough. Lately, I’ve been seeing more and more posts on social media that are edited but not overly so. They’re enhanced in a way that brings out more color or depth. There are even some fun ones that let you use stickers to decorate your shots. So if you want to make your photos and videos a bit more interesting, try these apps on for size.
