Author: The Printique Team

There’s only one thing we love more than discovering a free photography-related gem online, and that’s sharing free discoveries with all of you! To make sure we’re up to pace on our weekly dose of free goodies, we’re introducing Free Fridays; from free photography resources to free public domain artwork and free mobile apps, we’ll be sharing our favorite free finds with you every week.

Start this weekend on the right foot and dive in to our favorites of the week!

Free Mobile Apps

If you’ve ever found yourself downloading and deleting dozens of editing apps while searching for the perfect one, these top picks are for you.


CapCut is a free video editing app that allows you to easily turn photos and videos into edits with major viral potential. As social media continues to push video content, CapCut is a heaven-sent tool that allows for quick video creation times – even if you’re working with primarily still images.

The app comes with pre-made video templates and allows you to share your content directly to TikTok.

Whether you want your smartphone photos to look like film or your wall gallery selects to have a cohesive aesthetic, Lightroom makes it easy to adjust your photos directly from your mobile device.

What we love about mobile editing is that it lends itself to mobile printing! With the help of Lightroom and our very own free mobile app, you can take photos on your phone, edit photos on your phone, and print photos on your phone. It doesn’t get easier than that!

If you’re looking for a mobile app that lets you easily add personality to your photos, Meitu is a must try.  With so many features included in its free package, it will definitely take some time to accustom yourself to the platform before editing becomes a breeze; but it’s sure to be worth it.

If you’re primarily making photo edits for professional work, this app might not be a fit. But if you’re editing for the sake of unique photo prints, fun social media posts, or personalized art, it’s definitely an app worth having!
