Okay, so maybe these tools aren't exactly secret, but they are on my list of top notch convenient tools to have when editing or designing your visuals.
Lately, I've been getting inquiries as to how to modify Wellness Stock Shop photos (especially for adding text overlay).
NOTE: Just to make sure you realize you can do this, the flexible usage rights are part of what make Wellness Stock Shop so unique to many other stock photo sites. Unlike many other photos you purchase, you have the freedom to modify your WSS images in any way you please to fit your brand and marketing needs.
These 5 are a taste of the awesome tools I'll be sharing in my upcoming Healthy Food Photos 101 course, but I'm spilling the beans a bit early on a few of my favorite easy-to-use design tools so you can get going with using your WSS photos to the fullest!
And to make things even better - all these tools are free (or nearly free)!
You can use these apps and programs for quick modifications, like basic editing, cropping and adding text, color overlay, borders or design elements.
So, here goes ...

5 TOP FREE(ISH) Editing Apps
Top Design App:

Top Text-to-Pics Apps:
These apps are either free or cheap, and offer a super great value. Although they don't offer much for wellness photos, both apps have pictures pre-loaded for you to choose from and you can easily upload your own photos from the Wellness Stock Shop Library.
Text 2 Pics app - This is an amazing inspirational quotes app that makes creating memes a piece-of-cake. Upload your WSS image, then choose one of their pre-scribed quotes, or edit to create your own, choose a style and - whuahla!
Quick app - I just really love the ease of this app and how quick it is to add text to any photo. Again, you can choose from one of their pre-loaded images, or upload your favorite WSS photo, choose your font, use your double-finger touch to move and adjust font size, use the slider to adjust your color, download and enjoy!
Top Editing App:
VSCO - This is probably one of the most popular editing apps in the professional photographer community, but it's super user friendly and available to anyone. VSCO offers beautiful presets to apply to your photos to give them a real film look. You can also make adjustments, such as adjusting for brightness and contrast.
Top Design Elements App:
Tangent - If you want to get really creative and have a ton of fun adding snazzy designs to your photos, check out Tangent. There's all sorts of patterns and textures available, and you can add fun fonts too!
