5 Best Alternatives to Adobe Photoshop for Android

Android users looking for a way to edit their photos on-the-go are in luck.

Adobe Photoshop has two different apps for Android users, and they are called Adobe Photoshop Express and Adobe Photohop Mix. While the Express app isn’t nearly as loaded with features as the full version for computers, it allows you to do simple edits on your phone and to directly share your images with your friends. Photoshop Mix is similar in that it has limited features. The app allows you to cut out elements from different images and combine them into one image. You can also blend layers and apply various looks.

If you want a more comprehensive editing app for your mobile device, there are other options available. Adobe Photoshop might be the King of photo editing software, but there are other apps that have better editing capabilities.

Check out the top five alternatives to Photoshop for your Android phone.

1. AirBrush

This Android app made its way to number one on this list because it’s the best app for editing selfies. People who often take and send selfies can use this app to perfect their images. The app allows you to remove blemishes and pimples by tapping on the blemish. You can even swipe to add some blush to your cheeks.

Two other useful features are the teeth whitener and eye brightener. The teeth whiten option gives your smile a makeover by whitening your teeth, while the brighten option brings life to your eyes

AirBrush even allows you to slim your photo, reshape it, or lengthen it. It gives you a way to edit your selfies as if you were being featured on a fashion magazine. And its editing options do expand beyond cosmetic fixes. You can blur, stretch, and crop photos. If you want to do it by hand, you can. Otherwise, you can choose for the app to automatically do it.

Editing photos before you actually take them is also possible with this app. You can select edits and filters before you take a picture. The filters are not your typical filters; some put makeup on your photos.

Because AirBrush was created for selfie users, sharing your photos is very simple. Through the app, you can share your photos to all of your favorite social media platforms
