Image Editing App #2
The Tadaa app has been on the market since June 2011 and has developed a lot in the last 9 years. Initially as an Instagram competitor on the market, Tadaa has now focused on being available as a pure photo app in HD quality. And the development was worth it: Tadaa is definitely one of the best photo editing apps in the Apple Store.
With more than 100 filters and over a dozen tools, Tadaa offers a wide editing palette. These are filters and tools that you don’t find in every app, or for which you usually have to download 2 to 3 different apps to pick up this spectrum. The tools that stand out the most are the tools for editing the perspective, as well as the repair tools.
Another very useful feature is the "masking" feature. With this you can edit only individual areas of the images. And apart from the countless filters, the intuitive and simple operation is another plus point. This is because the user has the ability to independently customize their work palette, disable and add tools and filters.
All in all, the Tadaa app is a very sophisticated photo app that you can customize as much as your own desktop.

Which photo editing app should never be missing is Airbrush.

There are several features to make your portrait perfect: In addition to redness , you can also improve dark areas, apply concealer digitally, make the complexion appear more radiant and even the figure in the right directions "shapen" (Here it must be said, however, that this tool is usually not even necessary and serves exclusively as a gimmick hehe).
And if you try the automatic mode, you can have a whole makeup applied. Try various styles and save a lot of time in the morning in the bathroom&
