Instagram-Like Effects for Desktop

Instagram-Like Effects for Desktop

If you've used the Instagram app, you'll know how it helps apply amazing effects to your photos in seconds! However, the app is for mobiles only and does not let you upload photos from your desktop. So how do you get Instagram-Like Effects for computer? Here are some desktop apps that offer effects similar to those on Instagram.

PicYou is a simple online tool that lets you easily upload your photos, apply effects from the library and then download/share them. Several images used throughout our own site have been processed through this amazing little tool including the featured image above. The only drawback is, you HAVe to Sign up to use the effects.  


I have also tried tools like 'Rollip' but PicYou I think has better, more interesting filters than any other. Also, the Rollip tool keeps bugging you with its suggestion to share your processed photo on social networks every other time you try out an effect from their library. It's really annoying. PicYou attempts no such thing. [show_random_quote]


Pixlr-o-matic is more like Instagram than most other services out there. What's best is that there's no Sign up or Log in required. Just go to the app, upload and image, apply effects and save. Real simple and fast.  
So, What do you think?
