Editing your photos with desktop software or a web application can take your Christmas photos to the next level. This is especially true if you plan on printing your photos or using them on a large platform like a billboard or wall poster. If your goal is to simply post them online, however, an app on your phone might be all that you actually need.

Two Free Apps To Consider:
  1. The Lightroom App Is Free On Mobile Devices
  2. Google Photos Has A Free Built In Photo Editor

Upload And Order Prints Online

If you plan on using your photos for Christmas cards or framing them for your home, ordering from a neighborhood print shop would be helpful for your local economy. Another option for customers on the go is to order prints from a chain store or online vendor.
