Over has grown from humble beginnings in 2012 as a simple “text over photos” app for sharing goals and inspirational quotes, into a multifaceted tool for businesses and individuals, used all over the world. The product has evolved, but the vision is the same: to inspire the world to create. Over is fully customisable, which means you can upload logos, fonts, and save your colour palettes for quick and easy access – no matter who’s designing. PLUS, there’s a constantly updated and carefully selected library of on-trend videos, graphics, and font collections, with full access to stock photography on Unsplash, Pixabay and Google Images.

You can edit your photos and videos with a vast range of filters and effects, while also accessing advanced text tools with curated fonts and styles.

Avatan is one of the best social photo editors available. It enables people to edit photos, interacting with each other, while using their own processing elements. All the elements are created and added by users to the social network and are integrated with the photo editor. With this app, you have the opportunity to create and save your own customised effects. Moreover, the photo editor features embedded functions for all the necessary types of face retouching and body shape adjustments.


Snapseed is a free online photo editor designed for social media managers that want to enhance their photos professionally. Its primary focus is on providing filters that will change the effects. You can also share your creations with its export tool. The software uses stacks/layers of edits so you can remove, arrange, or apply them at will. These stacks can be saved as a “look,” meaning a style which you can then use to apply to other photos. Snapseed shines with an impressive array of filters, brushes, and nondestructive editing tools that will delight any serious photo editing buff.
