Android users have a handful of options for photo editing.
If you’re searching for a way to edit your photos quickly and easily from your smartphone, look no further than this list.
Here are the ten best photo editing apps for Android users.
Part1. For Adobe Photoshop Fans
Adobe Photoshop makes great editing software for computers, but did you know that they also make a few apps for smartphone editing? If you have a Creative Cloud subscription, you can coordinate your edits across different computers and smartphones. It saves your edits and lets you access them from any device- a major time-saver for people who already use and love Photoshop. For fans of this editor, here are three Adobe photo editing apps for Android.
Photoshop Express offers some serious editing capability. The app allows you to do all of your basic edits (like crop, flip, and remove red eyes). It also has an auto-fix feature, blemish removal, and color change options. You can also defog and reduce noise in your images.
There are over 20 different filters available to you through the app, and you can create and save your own. For even more creativity, you can use one of the 15 borders and frames. After you’re finished editing, share your photos across as many social media platforms as you want with the app’s sharing options.
For combining photos, Mix is a great option. You can merge photos together, remove sections of your image, and apply many different preset filters (called FX Looks) to your photos. It’s also possible to adjust contrast and colors of images. Everything is done with the touch of your finger, and all of your edits are non-destructive. It’s a very forgiving app.
People looking to share their finished photos across social media can take advantage of the social sharing features. Sharing images to Facebook, Instagram, and other sites only require the push of a button.
This app is both an organizational tool and a useful photo editor for Android. It allows you to organize over 10,000 photos. You can tag photos, flag images, and make notes about images.
But it also offers some interesting editing tools. You can create your own filters, use already made filters, and use a healing brush to remove unwanted objects. The app also makes sharing to social media simple.
Adobe Lightroom is great, but it’s not the most affordable option. To use the app, you need to have a Lightroom Creative Cloud subscription. And if you only use Adobe Photoshop as your desktop editing program, an additional Lightroom CC subscription can be costly.
Part2. 7 Alternatives to Adobe Apps for Android
Adobe might be a popular option, but it’s not always the best. Here are seven photo editing apps for Android phones that can meet your needs.
This free photo editor for Android comes with more than 2 million effect, filter, and overlay combinations. Your options are almost limitless, and this app really lets you put your creativity to the test. One of the more unique features is the stylizing. You can make any photo look like a painting, pencil sketch, or ink drawing. Try to layer several photos together to form one image. Or, for selfies and portraits, whiten teeth and remove blemishes. There’s also an option to add text to create memes. This app does a lot, and it’s all free.
Unlike some of the apps geared towards social media posting, this app does more than just cosmetic edits. There are fewer filters and more options for adjustments. You can change the tone, darkness, exposure, contrast, and brightness with a slider. There are RGB color channels and white balance options. If you’re looking for an app that will give you a chance to do more detailed editing work, this is an ideal choice.
While Instagram doesn’t offer many tools for photo editing, it does offer enough to make your images fit for social media. You can choose from a wide range of filters and effects to alter your image. You can also crop your photos as you need. The ease of editing and posting make this a good choice for simple edits.
As a side note, you don’t have to post your photos to Instagram to save them. If you want to use Instagram as an editor, you can set your phone to airplane mode before you edit an image. Then, when you try to post your finished photo, it will save it to your camera roll instead of sharing it.
Ideal for people who want to edit their selfies, AirBrush makes quick improvements to your selfies and portraits. You can remove blemishes, whiten teeth, and brighten eyes with the app. To give pictures a slimmer appearance, you can use the reshape tool. There are also many filters to choose from to add fun looks to your images.
One of the selling points of this app is its ease of use. The app edits with one touch, and even has a few automatic settings. It’s fast, fun, and simple.
This free app is very popular, and it’s easy to see why. It offers a combination of filters and detailed editing option, making it useful for both fun social media posts and professional use. While you can sharpen, blur, and control various settings (hue, brightness, etc.), you can also add frames, filters, and stickers.
Another more detailed photo editor for Android phones, Photo Mate R3 has a good selection of tools.It supports RAW files, so this app works well for people who are serious about photography. It includes a lens collection and also does all of the editing basics you might need.
An app geared towards photographers, VSCO offers the ability to easily edit photos. You can choose from preset styles to edit photos at the push of a button. Unlike some social media photo editors, this app offers more realistic effects and fewer cartoonish options. You can choose to do more detailed editing with adjustments to shadows, clarity, exposure, and more. The app itself is free, though you can make in-app purchases for certain presets and tools.
