It’s also a lot of fun to use because you can adorn your friends’ pretty faces with mustaches, insert text bubbles, or you can simply add different effects to photos.

        4. Adobe Photoshop Touch

        Most professional photographers are already familiar with the desktop version of Adobe Photoshop—one of the most powerful photo manipulation programs—so they were more than eager to try out its companion app, now available for Android. The app basically brings all the important features of Photoshop to the Android OS, and even if it may seem a little difficult to understand at first, if you persevere, you will soon find out that its editing capabilities go far beyond that of Instagram or Aviary.

            Best Photography Apps

            When it comes to photography, the most important process is definitely the shooting. You can easily edit a photo that has good light and decent framing, and with the following smartphone photography apps the process will be very simple. Learn how to change the mood of the camera, the light intake and many other things, in order to capture the most beautiful pictures.

            At the moment, this is the most popular photo app and it also offers a cloud platform to manage files, plus eight shooting modes (including quick-shoot, self-portrait and audio mode). Camera360 is the best app for those who are still working their way around the Android OS because every shooting and editing option has little notes and descriptions. The app also has a “funny-photography” mode, with which you can create Andy Warhol-style or ghost pics.

With it you can take great photos, with good contrast, lighting and brightness. Another thing that you will definitely appreciate about it is the fact that it can take great-quality photos on dark nights (obviously, this also depends on your camera specifications).

                  4. Retro Camera

This tool is basically a camera through which you can add different effects, like film scratching, vignetting etc. It also has a fast sharing option for social media profiles.

The only thing you need to do is to keep your hand still while taking the shots!

                      Best Sharing Apps

                      We live in an age of hyper-mobility, and this has made us heavily reliant on technology. Sharing photos through various social media platforms has become a normal daily habit. Here are five photo sharing apps for Android that will make your life easier:

                      1. Instagram

                      Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years, you probably know what Instagram is. The app was purchased by Facebook a while back, and at the moment, it is the most popular social platform for sharing photos online. As a matter of fact, Instagram could easily be featured in the editing category as well, but we decided that its most notable impact has been as a sharing medium. So, if you want people to see, like, and share your photographs, you should definitely become a member of the huge Instagram community.

                        2. Postagram

                        Postagram is indeed a photo-sharing app, but it may not be the type of sharing that you had in mind. With it, you can turn photographs into high-resolution postcards, printed on glossy paper, and send them anywhere in the world for little over a dollar. If you are traveling around the world, you can easily stay in touch with your loved ones at home.

                          3. SnapChat

                          Snapchat has a funny way of sharing your photographs with the rest of the world. The whole idea is to quickly take a funny video or photo and then send it over to your friends. As soon as they see it, it will disappear.

                          Top 20 Photography Apps 13

                            4. DropBox

                            Dropbox is undoubtedly the best tool for sharing images—with yourself. Forget about the days when you had to connect your smartphone to your computer through USB. With Dropbox, all you have to do is connect to the internet on both devices and it will automatically share your photos, documents and videos. If you want to access your files, you can simply share a link with friends and family.

                              5. Flickr

                              Flickr is one of the most popular platforms for people who like to share their photos. It lets its users take pictures with the app’s camera, and instantly share it on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr groups. Like Instagram, it also has a few editing features, and it is hands-down the best way to share high-resolution photos.

                                Best Professional Apps

                                Even if you are a professional photographer, it is impossible to carry your camera around all the time. Luckily for you, the trusty smartphone is always there, and thanks to the incredible developments in technology, it might just save your life the next time you’re feeling inspired. Here are the best professional photography apps for Android:

                                1. PerfectShot

                                PerfectShot is a pocket photographer’s dream because it has a wide variety of features like smart auto-focus, fast launching, multiple modes, zooming, and an innovative control system. It basically has all the features that you were used to on your D-SLR. It’s also equipped with some great filters (white balance, exposure, flash-modes, zoom), which will make image shooting more effective.

                                  2. Golden Hour

                                  There is a saying among photographers that the best hours to take pictures are the first one and the last one of the day. They also refer to it as the “golden hour”, but sometimes it’s hard to tell exactly when that hour is. With the Golden Hour app, you can easily calculate the best time for taking high-quality photos, according to your current location, date and season. As if this wasn’t enough, the app also has a weather forecast feature.

                                  Top 20 Photography Apps 17

                                    3. Photo Gallery (Fish Bowl)

                                    As a professional photographer you will be taking lots of photos, and you need a place where you can organize them all. The Fish Bowl photo gallery will copy all your selected images and arrange them for better viewing.

                                      4. Add Watermark

                                      A great app, based on a simple, yet effective idea. The tools does exactly what it says: it adds watermarks to your photos. This will keep people from stealing and re-posting your photography. You can even create your very own, personalized logo.

                                          7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

                                          7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

                                          Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

                                          Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

                                          Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

                                          So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

                                          Joe’s Goals

                                          Advertising

                                             

                                            Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

                                            Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

                                            Daytum

                                              Daytum

                                              is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

                                              Advertising

                                              Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

                                              Excel or Numbers

                                                If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

                                                What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

                                                Evernote

                                                Advertising

                                                  I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

                                                  Evernote is free with a premium version available.

                                                  Access or Bento

                                                    If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

                                                    Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

                                                    Advertising

                                                    You can check out Access and the Office Suite here and Bento here.

                                                    Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

                                                    All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

                                                    Conclusion

                                                    I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

                                                    What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
