Do you love writing? If you’re a blogger, your love of writing is probably what got you started in the first place!

Top 5 Photo Editing Tools for Bloggers
One of the secrets to having the best blog photos lies in finding the best blogger photo editor. Don’t worry, there are plenty of editing tools and apps out there to take your blog photos from good to great!
Here are 5 of our favorites:
Adobe Lightroom is probably one of the most popular photo editing tools out there right now among bloggers. The mobile app is free to download, but you will need to pay to access certain premium features.
The great thing about Adobe Lightroom is that it’s easy to find purchasable and downloadable presets for this app. Due to its popularity, you can also find plenty of tutorials online about how to use all its editing tools.
Adobe Spark may be less popular than Lightroom, but it is no less powerful! Spark comes with several picture filters and editing tools. It has a sleek and simple layout that might even be a bit easier to navigate than Lightroom.
For bloggers who want to spend more time on their writing and less time worrying about perfect photos, Spark is the way to go.
For all of you who love to shoot and edit photos on the go, Snapseed is a must-have app! What you see is what you get with this FREE mobile app — that means no tantalizing premium features demanding that you pay to get full access to the app.
For a free app, you’d be surprised how much Snapseed can do. There is even a selective Repair tool, which allows you to zoom in and “repair” specific portions of the photo. Yes, you can use Snapseed to blur out all those extra people in your travel photos!
The one downside to Snapseed as a blog editing software is that there is no desktop version.
Marketed as “a community for creators, by creators,” VSCO is how fashion bloggers edit their photos, as well as artists and other creatives.
This photo editing app is an excellent choice for bloggers who want to have a soft, vintage film style on their site. The free version of the app comes with 10 presets (or filters) and a few basic editing tools. With a monthly subscription fee, VSCO users gain access to the app’s advanced editing tools and complete preset library (over 200!).
When it comes to blog photo editing, Canva is a must-have tool that should be in every blogger’s toolbox! Canva offers both a desktop site and a mobile app to meet your photo editing needs.
Canva is a bit different from the other items on this list, as it leans more towards graphic design. It’s a great tool for creating photo collages, infographics, announcements, social media images, and more!
