VSCO has become the go-to app for anyone who loves taking pictures and showing them off, but doesn’t want the hassle of having to spend hours making them just right. VSCO – which stands for Visual Supply Company – is the app which pioneered straightforward photo editing on smartphones. They offer a full range of editing tools in a user-friendly platform which allows you to edit your image as much or as little as you like. Using the in-app camera is the best way to get great results. It has a toolbar with all the core tools you need to take a great photo. If you do need to polish it a bit, VSCO has no fewer than 15 different editing tools letting you do things like adjust exposure levels, colours, and contrast, saturation, sharpening, cropping, as well as more complex things like changing the tint of shadows.

DROPBOX

When your working with alot of images you want to be able to keep them safe and not over load your phone so a cloud style storage is really helpful. Dropbox is the leader when it comes to keeping images safe and having a dependable storage. It also has a free minimum storage so if your good about curating your content you'll be able to use it free for a long while. You can also use different email addresses to keep photos from different years if you will be needing free storage long term.
