One of the best features of owning a smartphone is having the ability to have a camera on you at all times. Whether you use that camera for snapping selfies, taking family pictures or capturing a beautiful sunset, smartphone-camera technology has allowed even the most novice of users the chance to feel like a professional photographer. But if you’re looking to set your photos apart from the rest or just want to have fun with your images, here are some apps that will make your pictures pop.
Color Splash: Many smartphones and photo editing apps allow users to convert their images to grayscale, but Color Splash allows you to do exactly what the app’s name says — add a splash of color to your black and white photos. Color Splash converts your photo to grayscale while keeping the details you wish to keep in color. Cost: $0.99 to download on iOS and Android. Find it: pocket pixels.com/
Luminance: This app features easy use for the novice and advanced use for those who are looking for heavy editing of their photos. The app includes its own library with iCloud backup, non-destructive editing and cropping, adjustment options and a variety of customizable pre-made filters. Luminance also features an adjustment on/off switch and a dedicated history section. Cost: $0.99 to download on iOS. Find it: apple.co/1qA7lrX
Magic Shutter: If you’re a fan of long exposure shots, you don’t need a professional camera to pull it off. Magic Shutter allows you to control the shutter speed on your iPhone or iPad. You can expertly create blurring and double exposure pictures as well. You can preview the results and the Smart Exposure feature lets you take long exposure pictures without the risk of over-exposing the image. Cost: $2.99 to download on iOS. Find it: riaproject.com/magicShutter.php
Autodesk Pixlr: This app lets you transform your photos into works of art with more than two million combinations of free effects, overlays and filters. You can also fine tune your photos with the Influence Masks feature, which allows you to control how the effects are applied to specific areas of the image. You can even turn your photos into works of art with effects like crosshatch, halftone and dapple. Cost: Free to download to iOS and Android. Find it: pixels.com/desktop

Just type your words in the box given and Ultratext turns your message into a looping animation. Cost: Free to download to iOS and Android. Find it: ultra text.com
