2. Adobe Creative Cloud (Lightroom + Photoshop)

This is the number 1 photo editing software in the industry. Adobe programs use to cost a small fortune but with their new Creative Cloud you can get Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop for just $10 per month. These programs can be a little challenging to get started with but they’re worth learning if you’ll be in the content creation business for the long haul! Also, you can find endless Lightroom and Photoshop tutorials on YouTube.

“Getting and learning Lightroom is the number 1 thing you can do to start producing higher quality images.”

They also have a Lightroom mobile app that you might want to look into. However, we recommend just using Lightroom on your desktop computer in order to get all the benefits of using the program.
