Instagram itself has a number of cool black and white filters which you can tweak around using the editing options, but it can’t make an ordinary photo look extraordinary. For that, you need a specialized app, which will add a professional noir feel to your photos, and make them cool enough to belong to a cooler feed. Black is such an app, which can help you sharpen your images without distorting the pixels, and is perfect for color correction, which is quite difficult when you are trying to edit a black white picture.

Price: $0.99

4. Afterlight

Утро доброе, мысли спокойные, организм голодный! Видимо болезнь отступает и скоро, мои ушедшие 2 кг во время болезни вернутся на свое законное место😂 Все хочу перейти полностью на правильное питание, но мозг сопротивляется всеми силами😳 Раньше как-то легче давалось отказываться от вкусняшек и жирной вкусной еды, а сейчас я слабак🙈 Ну как отказаться от новых завтраков в @honest.almaty🍳 Чистосердечное признание перед вами😂 Еще хотела написать про странные комментарии у блогеров на тему «а вы что дома вообще не готовите? Только по ресторанам да кофейням все время» но кому оно надо? Ибо адекватные люди прекрасно понимают, что всю свою жизнь в инстаграм сливать как минимум странно и глупо😅 Да и к тому же у нас дома еда съедается сразу же после приготовления, какое там фото?🤣 . . У вас хорошая сила воли?☺️

Litely is a wonderfully simple and effective photo editing app which can make your photos look like they were clicked by a professional photographer. Like Pixlr, this app also directly connects with your iPhone in-built photo extensions, which means that you can operate it from the photos app itself, and not separately, like most other apps.
