I still remember the time when YouTube was being introduced (No. I’m not old. I’m just seasoned.) And while the concept of getting access to thousands of videos was definitely cool, being able to create your own channel was the most intriguing part of it.

People used to tirelessly run for the perfect lighting conditions, re-shoot videos hundreds of times just because there was a slight tint and hue in the color scheme, and wait overnights for the videos to be rendered.

But with the tech-boom we have today, there’s no need for those tiresome video or photoshoots.  Thanks to the millions of video and photo editing apps available for all platforms, you can now do everything with just some quick touches and pinches on your smartphone.

But which best editing application should you choose? Here’s a beginner’s list of photo and video editing apps for iOS.

Photo Editing Apps for iOS

Apart from making basic edits like playing with exposure, color, and sharpness, you can also use selective tools and brushes to edit certain parts of your image.

Well, the new Luminar 4 is already being hailed as the future of photo editing. But one of the most interesting features of the app is the sky replacement tool.
