6 Best Apps for Editing Photos on Your Android Phone
Getting that perfect shot isn’t always easy, especially if you’re on your mobile phone. You may blur an area of the photo, capture something that you didn’t know was in the background, or be the victim poor lighting conditions. That doesn’t mean that your photo can’t be beautiful, though. With the help of these apps, you can make an ordinary photo something extraordinary, all on your Android phone.
PicSay Pro is an easy-to-use photo editing app with powerful features. It has all the traditional editing tools that you’d expect from a photo editor, with the addition of lots of fun effects to choose from. Many of its filters and features are similar to Instagram. Its most distinguishing feature is its library of stickers and text bubbles to liven up your photos. Once you’ve made your edits and added fun stickers and text, you can share your photos on Facebook, Twitter, and even Instagram. This is a great app for serious and not-so-serious photo editing.
PicsArt is one of the best and largest photo editing apps on the Android market, and works by enhancing the functions on your standard camera. It even has its own social network, similar to Instagram. It features high quality, unique filters, and comes with a collage feature that is a favorite among its users. There are also different kinds of layering, masks, frames, borders, stickers, and more. The drawing effects make it easy to create doodles on your photos, and sharing on your social networks is a snap.
Snapseed is one of the newer photo editing apps, but it has already won a number of awards. The app’s biggest draw is that all enhancements can be done using swiping gestures. It offers simple editing tools, like autocorrect, to adjust color and exposure. If you’d like to edit more, white balance, contrast and brightness can all be adjusted to your liking. The app also makes it easy to crop, rotate, and straighten photos, and there are many filter options to create a unique look. You can share photos on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ with just one touch.
Pixlr Express has a number of features that makes it a favorite among serious photographers. The “denoise” option makes it easy to reduce noise in photographs. The tilt, shift, and blur tools are particularly good as well. You can save files at their original size to reduce quality loss. Recent updates have allowed users to be able to adjust the opacity of filters, layers and textures. You can add more than one filter and rotate or flip filters to create truly spectacular photos.
Touch Retouch is an app that you’ll want to have on hand, if only for its ability to remove distracting elements from your photos. The app’s simple functions allow you to easily use the lasso tool to select an area that you want to remove. Then, using algorithms and details from the surrounding area in the photo, it gets rid of the unwanted element in a natural-looking way. It can edit photos up to eight megapixels.
Photo Editor is a basic image editing app with the ability to save in .png and .jpg formats. The app can handle photos up to 16 megapixels. Adjust color levels and curves, skew images or apply filters to add artistic effects to your pictures. The limitations of the app are that it offers only a few filters and frames. For a basic editor, though, it gets the job done and has easy-to-use text tools to add words to your photographs.
