During my entire blogging career, I have come across many photography apps that are not common but yet highly useful. This article will showcase some of those best photography apps that I have come across.
To make this article more resourceful, I have included best photography apps for iPhone, Android, few Mac apps and Windows OS. I will try to keep this post updated and do suggest us an app that are not on this list, so we can review and add them here.

Google Camera (Android) & Google Photos (iPhone)
Google Camera comes preloaded in Nexus phones and tablets, and it has all the essentials within. Better than the built-in camera app, this app gives 360-degree images you can explore, Panorama shooting mode, Lens Blur mode for DSLR-like effect and much more clarity.
Google Photos has been revamped and now it outshines Apple’s Photo App. The scrolling in more intuitive and the section is almost perfect. This app from Google also gives you unlimited storage, but there is a cap on size, but that is ok. Another amazing capability is the search for photos in this app. You have multiple filters to search, like – event, object, by face, etc.
JPEG Mini (Mac and Windows)
JPEGmini will reduce your JPEGs to a smaller size retaining image quality that’s acceptable. Many website owners fall under dilemma of choosing a high-quality image or going for the site speed.

This time-lapse app has image stabilization at its par, and you can speed up and slow down a video from a range of 1x to 12x. What more can you expect from Instagram’s second app?
VSCO Cam (iPhone)
The standard of mobile picture-taking. VSCO Cam is the premier route to shooting, edit, and share your pictures.
VSCO Cam is combined with the curated VSCO Grid, an exhibition of exceptional images from throughout the globe. Find and support other creatives from around the world and post your photos. Save and publish inspirational work to your Stock. Because beautiful imagery trumps group clout, the number of supporters, comments, and likes are absent from the platform.
Streamline your workflow by selecting photos to sync and edit across devices. VSCO Tools allow for fine tuning, with the goal to complement, not define, your photographs. Exposure, Temperature, Contrast, Crop, Straighten, Fade, Vignette, and more allow you to define your look. Simplify your editing process with Copy + Paste and Single Step Undo.
Picstitch has been there for a long time. It simply provides a collage to your photos. Add multiple photos to a frame, borders, layouts and effect. Although all of these things are present in modern day apps like Instagram, still PicStitch was the one made this wave of stitching pics.
