Photo editing was a job left to the professionals before the digital age. Even though Adobe Photoshop got very popular in this age there are still only a handful of people who can actually create things with Photoshop or edit their pictures. There’s a learning curve involved. But with smart phones and selfies, photo editing has become so popular almost everyone has at some point tried some photo editors on their smart phones. Today we will take a look at possibly the best photo editors on the Playstore in my opinion.
Blurone is the simplest and most basic app on this list and what it does is, as you may or may not have guessed, it blurs images. If you’re one of those people who like a blurred wallpaper so your icons look sharper and pop out instead of hiding in the wallpaper then this is a very good app for you.
You can blur your current wallpaper or a custom image and you can not only set the amount of blur but also the brightness and RGB values via easy sliders and tune it to your liking with real-time output. There are options to set your new piece of art as your wallpaper right away or save it to your sd card. It’s a free app that is small in size and it doesn’t hurt to have it in there somewhere when you need it.
Snapseed by Google is a very user-friendly and clean photo editing app with a good number of filters and some very advanced photo editing tools that are easy to use and also probably all you will need for your social media needs. It is my go to app for basic photo editing that I don’t want to give a lot of time in.
Editing photos is as easy as swiping right and left to decrease or increase the value for the current setting in the respective orders. Swiping up or down brings up the various settings that are available for tweaking. From curves to healing Snapseed has you covered and should be the only photo editor most of you will need.
3. Toolwiz Photos Editor PRO
Toolwiz Photos Editor is truly a PRO photo editing too and swiping left or right on the home screen brings you various modes some of which you may never have heard of before such is the vast variety of options this app gives. If snapseed left you with a sense that something was lacking there is a huge plethora of choices in this app that if I were to write about all of them it would take an entire day and i am not sure that will be enough.
So many options can confuse normal people and might push them away from using the app at all. Take a look at the screenshots above and see if that doesn’t overwhelm you. It sure overwhelms me and I have had this app for more than three months but I haven’t tested everything with this app yet. I don’t edit a lot of pictures though so there’s that.
If you’re a pro and Photo Editors on android have never been able to satisfy your professional needs, you must try this because if this is not enough, i am not sure what will be.
The best part is, unlike a lot of “pro” apps, this is all free and it is the most pro photo editor you will find.
4.Photo Lab PRO Photo Editor
Sometimes all of these professional and complicated tools aren’t what most people need to edit our photos. Sometimes we fancy effects like cool photo frames and a nice looking portrait of ourselves. If you are one of those people, then you are in luck because I have just the right app for you.
