Cameras come in all shapes and size, with all sorts of different specs varying on the numerous Android phones available in the market. Taking pictures with a camera phone can be tricky, but if done right, can actually lead to some very nicely shot pictures. A touch of filters, and a bit of editing with camera/photography apps available as third party tools, and you can have yourselves some well processed photographs.
In this article, we’ll have a critical look at the 3 best photo editing apps for the Android OS. This of course is our opinion, and you are always welcome to come forward, disagree with our choices, and present your own alternates! So without further ado, let’s have a look at some of the best options out there on Google Play.
The best part about this app? It’s free! Yeap, totally free to use with no hidden charges or conditions. This photo filtering app is much more than your traditional image editor. With features like Auto Correct, users can load their pictures on to the app, and let the app do it’s magic. The auto correct editing is not cheesy at all, and it actually does quite a good job of giving your photos a solid uplift.
But of course, if you like to edit your pictures manually, Snapseed has a variety of modern filters to tinker around with, all with their own customized settings and features. Just like any other photo editing app, Snapseed gives its users the ability to cut, crop, rotate, resize and drag their photos at their will. We definitely recommend this app, not just because it’s totally free but it really stands out from the crowd while comparing it to similar apps.

Pixlr Express can literally be put forward as the best Photoshop alternate when it comes to the level of features and the functionality of the app. Apart from the basic editing tools like cropping, resizing, rotating etc, the app provides a brilliant interface to work on.
We love the way you can get to most of the main features with a few taps; no messing around with going from A to Z for a basic setting option. There’s also the option to select from a preset of filters, which shows a preview of your images to give you an idea of the type of effects. Other features includes adding frames, borders and even stickers to your photos.

So you’re a fan of Photoshop on your PC and can’t get enough of it? Well, you can use Photoshop on the Android as well, thanks to Photoshop Touch. The overall interface, look and feel of the app is actually quite similar to its PC counterpart, and users will have no problems crisscrossing around getting to their favorite tools and filters.
But don’t get carried away with the Android app. After all, it’s an app and not a full blow software suite like on the PC. You will notice a lot of features missing, and lots of options simply being cut down. The interface also has a few minor problems, like for example, it can crash up on you and the transitions can get a bit laggy sometimes as well.
But on the Brightside, Photoshop Touch has the best arsenal, so to speak, among all of its competing apps. You will all sorts of tools, filters, effects, brushes, shadows, and strokes to edit and modify your photo.
