This free app is perfect for food fanatics. With a great range of editing features you can adjust anything from exposure to saturation on specific points of the image. The photos maintain their full resolution keeping them super sharp and the app even has its own top photo picks section – VSCO Journal – which has an incredible collection of food photography so you can learn from those at the top of their game.


This is one of our favourite apps for food (and everything else). Like VSCO, it has a brilliant range of editing tools – we especially like the ‘Healing’ feature which will help remove those splashes or fingerprint marks from your plates! It also has some fun filters which are great for enhancing your photos. This is a free app sensation.


It’s all in the name with this app. App developers, Line Corporation, have listened to the woes of poor lighting and heavy instagram filters and devised the ultimate solution. Foodie has filters specifically for those delicious shots with categories such as fresh, sweet, bbq and romantic. If that wasn’t good enough, the app has a brilliant ‘best angle’ feature to help with lining up shots. For example, if you’re holding your phone above your dish a helpful notification will tell you when you’re right over the top of your dish creating the perfect shot. Did we mention it’s free? We’re downloading now!

A Color Story

This app focuses on really fresh, vibrant photos to make your photos pop. Which when you have perfected that colourful dish have a flick through their 100+ filters and tools and even  create your own custom filters to capture that truly perfect shop. Food envy guaranteed.


It may sound simple, but the addition of a white border to your photograph can transform its impact. We love the sleek, minimalist design of the Whitagram app and how it takes photographs to a new level. Once you’ve posted a stream of them on Instagram, it gives your portfolio a consistent thread which will have friends demanding your editing secrets. Get ahead of the crowd and give it a go!
