Twitter’s late-2012 split with Instagram was termed “the biggest social breakup of 2012”. You can read the full story here, if you’d like a refresher.

The buzz around the Twitter-Instagram breakup illustrates how closely linked social media and photo-sharing are today. You may have noticed, as well, Facebook’s recent News Feed redesign, designed to bring visual content front and center.

Want to dress up the images you share on the social web? Here are our three favorite photo-editing apps (aside from the ever-popular Instagram, of course):

1. Pic Stitch (free)
Pic Stitch bills itself as the No. 1 collage app – and once you’ve started using it, you can see why it’s so popular. The app pulls images from your photo album or your Facebook account to make collages. The collage images it produces can then be exported to Facebook, shared on Instagram, emailed or even printed at a Walgreens store.

Pic Stitch is a great way to repurpose images you’ve already saved on your phone or tablet. It’s also perfect for summarizing an event in a visual way, like we did here with last week’s MobileBeat 2013 tech conference:

2. Vintique ($0.99)

Unlike the other two apps on this list, Vintique has a price tag. But at 99 cents, it’s a steal (assuming you like applying filters to your images, that is).

Vintique, as its name hints, is chock-full of “vintage” photo filters. The filter options in Vintique put Instagram to shame: there are more than 50 available, in addition to tweaks like color temperature and hue.

If sharing normal, unfiltered images has gotten too blah – or if you really want to make it look like you live in the late 1800s – Vintique can help.

3. Overgram (free)
Putting text on images is cool, right? Yes, it is. Especially if you like sharing inspirational content on your website, blog or social networks.

Here’s an example we made in Overgram – which makes inserting text a snap – in just a few minutes:

The basic app is free; upgrading to the paid version adds fonts and removes the “Overgram” watermark in the bottom-right corner. Depending on how often you like to share text-optimized images, it may be a worthwhile purchase.

Those are our “pics” – which photo-editing apps do you like?
