Nowadays, everyone documents everything they do—the food they eat, the thoughts they think of, the clothes they wear, even the things they buy. One of the ways in which people document the things they do is by taking a photo. With the rise of technology and decent camera quality came selfies. Selfies are basically photos that you take of yourself alone or with others. Although some argue that selfies promote vanity, selfies can also boost your self-confidence. To get the best selfie, you can ask for the help of a couple of smartphone apps. This way, even if you’re not photogenic, you can get a decent photo for your social media profile. Here are eight apps for the selfie addict in you that will surely help you take the best photos of yourself.
