Photography is one of the most important discoveries of the human race. Photo editors have also been around for quite a while now. Thanks to the smartphone revolution (they are a revolution, aren’t they?), photo editors have reached a point in which we might consider switching to them. Modern photo editor apps have proven it to be highly effective and worthy. So in this article, we have listed some of the best photo editing apps for iPhone and Android.
Here are our top-picked photo editors that are available for the iPhone and Android.
List of Photo Editing Apps
Who else to start with other than Google’s own. Snapseed is a photo editor owned and developed by Google. And if we know anything about Google, they’re the best when it comes to photos. There is no doubt that Google has the advantage of having a wide userbase than anyone else in this list, which clearly does pay off in the end for Google.
Snapseed comes with all the essential tools required for photo editing like cropping, vignettes, straightening, frames, text, etc. The app also offers customizable filters, which is a great addition. Powered by Google’s AI, Snapseed does a great job at making your photos look beautiful. Above all, Snapseed is free and available for both iPhone and Android. You can download it from the following links.
Prisma Photo Editor
Prisma won’t be needing an introduction (does it?). It came in a time when most filters made our photos looked like “drawings” or “paintings” (and to be honest, all of them were truly horrible, weren’t they?). There is no denying that Prisma did a great job at converting our images into paintings that looked like Picasso came into our homes.
You could get away with the generous amount of free filters, we would recommend that you try the premium version. Don’t worry, it won’t put a hole in your pocket. Prisma also happens to have its own community like Instagram/Facebook, so yeah, your skills won’t go unnoticed. You can download it from the following links.
Adobe Photoshop Express
Here comes the “professional” photo editor from a company that supposedly holds a monopoly in the PC realm. The so-called mobile version of Photoshop lets the user play with advanced (or just the basic) features like exposure, contrast, colour correction, and much more.
As said above, Adobe Photoshop Express is an excellent tool for tweaking your images. With a decent selection of filters, overlay textures, and tools for making collages, we’d say the app is worth the penny. You can download it from the following links.
VSCO is all about the filters. These make your photos look like they were taken with an analogue film camera. Yeah, the basic version is more than enough for you, but you could definitely try their 7-day free trial. The vast range of presets includes those designed to emulate classic rolls of film from Kodak, Fujifilm, and Ilford.
The user can also use VSCO to adjust the exposure, temperature, contrast, or skin tones. They can also share their handwork with VSCO’s community or to another social media platform. You can download it from the following links.
Well, here is another one from Adobe. Lightroom for mobile is very much similar to that of the PC variant. The app has the same set of tools you’d find in Lightroom on the desktop. And yes, it is not meant for adding stickers onto a photo (maybe you could work around a little).
The projects sync in the cloud, letting a user continue on their beefy machine if they do so require. Yeah, it’s paid, but for the reason that it does what it claims. You can download it from the following links.
This one is special, as the name suggests is meant for all the foodies out there. A true foodie doesn’t care what others think of their eating habits, and neither does Foodie. Foodie’s editor is very much similar to that of Instagram’s. But here, all of the 30 filters and editing features are set up with food in mind. You can download it from the following links.
This one, on the other hand, is meant for minor details. We believe there’s nothing wrong with pimples, dark spots, bags under the eyes, or teeth that aren’t perfectly white. But what if you don’t want them in your selfies (you know, just to confirm how bad you’d look without them). The free version of the app lets the user quickly retouch their portrait photos. one can smooth skin, reduce skin shine, apply eye makeup, whiten teeth, and more.
However, the free version of the app is filled with ads. And comes with a pimple that looks just like a watermark. So we recommend that you go with the pro version. You can download it from the following links.
That’s it, this is the list of best photo editing apps we hope you found this list helpful. We are open to suggestions, so do tell us what you think of them via comments below.
