Posted: August 3rd, 2017 | Posted in: General News

Spending time in Caithness means that there is a good chance that you are going to want to take plenty of pictures. Whether this is of you and your family enjoying your break, or the natural beauty of the local area, photos are a great way to capture memories of your time in Caithness.

Not everyone is a natural photographer, which means that you may need a bit of a helping hand to make sure that your pictures are as clear as you want them to be. If this is true for you, then we have put together some of the best photo and video apps that you can download, getting you ready for all those images that you are going to capture whilst you are in Caithness.


If you have an iOS device, then this is a must have app for you. It comes with everything that you could ever want from a video editing app, and is not too different to the Mac desktop version that you will see.


The Android alternative to iMovie, this amazing video editor is a great addition to your app collection. Not only can you trim and arrange clips with ease, but you can also add titles and try out a variety of transitions too.


Available on both Andriod and iOS, Prisma is a great photo app to have on your phone. It can easily transform any photos that you have taken into a work of art, and takes inspiration from a range of popular artists such as Van Gogh, Munch and Picasso.


We are all becoming a little bit obsessed with Instagram, and if you love sharing photos for the world to see, then this is definitely the app for you. Not only does it allow you to share your image (with a whole load of hastags to boot) but it also lets you add in some great filters and use editing tools to make sure that your photos look gorgeous!


If Prisma turns your photo into a work of art, Pixlr can help it to become a masterpiece. There are so many different effects and filters on Pixlr that you can be kept busy for ages. Not only this, but you can also add in text captions and layer your images too. All pretty great if you want to create some stunning images.

So, now you know, there are ways that you can make sure that your videos and photos of Caithness can look their best. Why not download some of these apps before you head up here, and see if you can take some great photos of your time in this beautiful part of the world?
