On a general note, if anyone was given a choice between operating systems such as Android, iOS and Windows Phone in recent times, there's a huge probability that the person would either go for an Android or an iOS-based operating system, with a slightly lesser chance of heading toward Windows Phone.
And before we start generalizing with same in mind, this kind of a mindset purely exists because most people have the notion that there's not much to choose from in the apps department if deciding to go for a smartphone that runs on the Windows Phone platform.
However, contrary to this kind of a belief, devices running Windows Phone do have a number of different apps that users can choose from in several different areas. And one such department is the photography section that's so dear to all of us in everyday life.
While there's no denying the fact that Windows Phone-based devices don't have access to apps like Instagram (whose image filters are quite impressive), there are still a number of amazing photo editing apps that Windows Phone users can choose from.
But which are the ones that you could actually look to consider? Let's take a close look at the top 5 apps for photo editing for the Windows Phone platform.
PhotoBeamer is a great photo editing app that's probably the most advanced compared to the others that are available online for the platform. It's basically a slideshow app that allows users to display their photos on any web-supported device. The app makes use of a QR code to link to different devices together, and is best if you are looking for seamless transfer of images.
Another interesting photo editing app is Lomogram that offers solace to users who are in love with analogue cameras and would love to have the same effects on their modern handsets. There are a number of filters to choose from here, alongside other enhancements that can be added externally.
Blink is one of the easiest and the most basic photo editing apps that you will ever find listed under apps for the Windows Phone platform. Apart from capturing a number of shots at a great pace, the app also has the ability to record frames before and after hitting the shutter release. You just cannot go wrong with this app.
The Photo Editor from Aviary offers a host of filters that have a sort of vintage look to them. The app has quite a simple interface alongside a host of customization options - including stickers and effects - that users can apply on their photos to make them even more breathtaking. However, the Resizing and Frames options are only available for the ones on iOS and Android.
Photosynth is basically a panorama app that has the unique ability to stitch a number of images together into a single panorama. The app also works closely with the Bing maps and users can geo-tag locations on photos that will then be automatically uploaded on the map service.
