If you're an Instagram junkie then you are likely always looking for ways to make your photos pop that extra bit. The Insta Shaper app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone allows you to add masks and overlays to your pictures that you post on Instagram. Just with a few minor effects and edits your pictures will come out looking stunning and are sure to capture everyone’s attention. It's not just Instagram where you will be able to post these unique photos; you can also post them to Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Flickr.

Get Your Photos Noticed

If you want to get your photos noticed or you just like being creative with pictures, this app can help you out. The whole point of this app is to encourage you to think outside the box and create visually stunning images that are as unique as they are attention-grabbing. You are able to let your inner artist out thanks to the user-friendly features and tools. Simply by posting an artistic shot you'll be amazed at how many likes you can get,  but just be prepared that after that initial shot people will want even more pictures from you.

The best iPad apps for photo editing

The app is free to download and use but some of the effects/tools need to be purchased. These in-app purchases range from $0.99 to $3.99. This app is a new release but is already garnering some very high customer ratings and comments. People seem to love being able to create one-of-a-kind pictures that aren't your average shots.

Editing Your Photos

With this app you are given a selection of shape templates and styles. There are more than 50 to choose from, all of which are free. There is more than 20 fonts, more than 200 custom shapes, and over 15 image filters. You can share photos by email, Twitter, Facebook, iMessage, Instagram, Tumblr, and Flickr. Of course with all your photos you can move them around, crop them, frame them, add text, add symbols, and shapes. Don't be afraid to get really creative and see where it takes you.

Best iphone and ipad apps

The app performs quite well, is easy to navigate, quick to use, and is very smooth. As you add effects they show up immediately so you will immediately know if you’re happy with the results. I find for a free app you certainly have a nice amount of features and editing tools.
