Whether you’ve got an Android or an iPhone, taking food pictures and editing them through your smartphone has never been more of a breeze! If you want to shoot and edit photos that will make your food photos look mouthwatering and professional, then use these food photography apps.

Here is a list of 10 best food photography APPs:

  • Lightroom mobile
  • Snapseed
  • VSCO
  • Facetune
  • Fotograf
  • Photoshop Express
  • Foodie
  • Pixlr
  • Paletta
  • Geulgram

1. Lightroom mobile.

Freelancing - Lr

The magic of Lightroom mobile is that you can edit your collections on the fly and you can see changes back on your computer once you sync again. Collections appear to be stacked on top of each other, with the latest one at the top being changed. Tap the three points in the bottom right corner to show the actions available for this collection.

2. Snapseed

Freelancing - Snapseed

It is a free photo editing app loaded with easy-to-use image manipulation tools and presets. Google supports the app, which is a plus in terms of quality and reputation. In order to improve their aesthetic quality, Snapseed allows you to edit your photos. You can then save your final edited Snapseed photo, share it and export it. It comes with a set of “looks” similar to Instagram’s filter presets. The app lets you edit and fine-tune things like brightness, saturation, contrast, curves, shadows, and more—giving you a surprising amount of ultimate look control. It is loaded with presets and tools of professional quality. For amateur and professional photographers alike, the app is user-friendly. It can edit RAW files and can edit images with simple finger swipe sliders. The app does not have any advertisements that make it a good food photography choice.


Freelancing - Vsco

VSCO Camera began life as an Adobe Lightroom and Apple Aperture film-emulsion add-on. In other words, its roots are to provide serious photographers with tools. There are few labels or icons on the sleek, minimal interface, but it is nicely organized. The camera module of VSCO and the handling of photo files are the best among other applications

4. Facetune

Freelancing - Facetune

The app that makes retouching easy in the Photoshop style is wildly popular but has prompted a debate about body images. When you shoot your food directly with the app, Facetune becomes even more intriguing. The artificial intelligence features of the app at that point allow you to adjust slider settings and preview results before taking your shot. An augmented reality live image editing feature allows you to smooth the surface of your food on the fly and through the lens as you target your camera to yourself. This is based on what the company calls high-fidelity 3D facial modeling aimed at integrating these enhancements naturally with your own features.

5. Fotograf

Freelancing - Fotograf

It allows you to make your own presets by tweaking integrated filters or saving as your own custom filter a set of adjustments. Has the perfect manual camera no-fuss mode, with a single exposure slider, to allow you to get perfectly exposed shots without messing with a bunch of other settings. The app opens automatically to either the in-app camera or your photo library, depending on which you’ve used the last time, to get you quickly to the part you’ve chosen or photographed.

6. Photoshop Express

Freelancing - Ps

It’s well designed and everything is immediately accessible, unlike Photoshop itself, even if you’ve never used a photo editor before. There is no need to install any browser plugins; just upload a picture and you’re ready to get started if you have Flash installed. Photoshop Express Editor supports only JPG files that are smaller than 16MP and no larger than 8,191 pixels. The limitation of width is not expressed in front, which is a shame. Some tools (including dodge and burn) are still in beta, and we’d like to see more added in the future, although the fact that Photoshop Express Editor is built in Flash rather than HTML5 makes us wonder how long Adobe intends to keep it updated.

7. Foodie

Freelancing - Foodie

Foodie is a free app that helps you shoot the dish and make your taste buds fit your visual stimulus. The app is designed to know how it’s located across your platter. It lets you know when you’re directly over your plate. The shutter button turns yellow when the app decides you’re in the right position to take the best photo. This does not determine that in this position you absolutely have to take the picture, but it certainly helps you to figure out the best lighting situation to capture that dish. Even the edges of your image are blurred by the app to give you that field effect depth.

8. Pixlr

Freelancing -

You can choose to capture a photo in-app, pull a picture in your camera roll, or assemble a collage with your food pictures, with different creative editing options to choose from. Photo creations are stored in a gallery, stored in a camera roll, or shared easily across a variety of platforms. You can learn specific art and design techniques involving line, color, and composition as they play around with the various tools in the app.

9. Paletta

Freelancing - Paletta

This app is for you, let the AI take care of understanding the colors of your images, and then all you have to do is select the colors you want to activate in the smart generated color palette. Now you can also change the original colors of the image, it is very easy to use and the results are amazing.

10. Geulgram

Freelancing - Geulgram

Geulgram is an optimized application making a variety of photo captions like quote, emotional, love, greeting, and cheering. Editing your food photos with this app gives you the room to add your best captions.

We know you can’t always take the right photo on set, so it’s vital to have some editing tools to help you get the perfect picture. These apps allow you to play in a picture with deep details and are the first we go to when editing our food shots. Editing can only take pictures so far! Make sure you take natural lighting pictures.
