1. Adobe photo editor apps
[Price: Free / Free with in-app purchases] Adobe has released a plethora of editing tools over the last couple of years.
Included are some of the best photo editor apps available.
Some of the options include Adobe Photoshop Express, Adobe Photoshop Mix, and Adobe Lightroom.
Each one has a variety of features to help you do things.
You’ll be able to do simple stuff like removing red eye to editing RAW files taken by your smartphone or DSLR camera.
The only potential caveat is that some of them require an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription in order to use all of the features.
Those who already use Adobe CC should definitely just get these since they’re included with a CC subscription anyway.
[Price: Free] AirBrush is a great photo editing app if you take a lot of selfies.
It specialises in quick fixes and edits made to face and skin including a blemish remover, teeth whitening, a function to make eyes look brighter, reshaping tools, and, of course, plenty of filters to add some pizzazz.
It’s quite easy to use and has managed an incredible 4.8 rating in the Google Play Store.
Most of the tools are one-click which makes all of it exceptionally easy to use as well.
It’s one of the easier photo editor apps to use.
3. Bonfire Photo Editor Pro
[Price: Free with in-app purchases] Bonfire Photo Editor is one of several increasingly popular photo editor apps.
This one is also pretty good.
It has the very basics which include filters along with basic editing tools.
What makes Bonfire a lot of fun, though, is the sheer number of filters that it supports.
It comes with your usual stuff like black and white, HDR, etc but it also comes with some unique ones such as Fancy, a filter that turns your photos into watercolor.
It does have some basic editing tools, like skin smoothing and blemish removal as well.
[Price: Free] Cupslice is another photo editor that relies heavily on things like filters to deliver a good experience.
On top of filters, the app features a tonne of stickers and the developers try hard to keep up with the latest trends so your stickers are usually up to date.
The filters can also be customised to give the look you want.
There are also some basic photo editing tools such as crop, frames, hue and saturation adjustment, black and white, collages, and brightness and contrast settings.
It’s not one of the more complex photo editor apps, but it’s good if you need something wicked simple and quick to spruce up a photo before sharing it somewhere.
5. Fotor Photo Editor
[Price: Free with in-app purchases] Fotor is a long time member of this list and there are many blogs and lists that list Fotor as a must have an option.
It’s has a lot more actual editing tools than most and includes the ability to enhance photos with a one-tap tool for your convenience.
Some of the other tools include crop, rotate, brightness, contrast, saturation, exposure, vignetting, shadow, highlights, temperature, tint, RGB, and, if those aren’t working, there are over 100 filters for you to choose from.
It’s definitely worth a shot.
[Price: Free with in-app purchases] PhotoDirector is a newer entrant (comparatively speaking) into the photo editing space on Android and this one is pretty good.
Like Fotor, this one focuses a lot more on manual enhancements rather than filters and you have access to HSL sliders, RGB color channels, white balance, and more to properly edit your photos.
There are also sliders for tone, brightness, darkness, exposure, and contrast for more in-depth editing.
It’s more powerful than most and should be good for those who want something other than filters.
7. Photo Editor by Aviary
[Price: Free with in-app purchases] Photo Editor by Aviary is another long time popular photo editor with a good set of features and reliability.
Like most, it features a one-touch enhance mode in case you’re feeling lazy today but it also comes with a variety of manual adjustments to let you do things like adjusting the color, brightness, temperature, contrast, saturation, and more.
This one also comes with stickers, filters, and cosmetic tools such as red eye fixing, blemish remover, and teeth whitener.
