Photo editing on Android is still in the stages where you can do only the most basic edits. However, apps are coming out all the time that add more and more functionality and mobile photographers have more options than ever before when it comes to editing photos on your Android device. In this list, we’ll explore the best photo editor apps for Android.
Adobe Lightroom mobile
[Price: Free app but requires Creative Cloud subscription]
Adobe recently released their iconic Lightroom application to Android. It allows for editing of RAW image format and the ability to enhance photos with a range of presets and tools. The app is a 30-day trial but those who have a Creative Cloud subscription can keep using it after the trial. You can also sync with desktop versions of Lightroom. We wish it’d been available for non-Creative Cloud users but if you happen to be one, this is a must have application.
Autodesk Pixlr is a highly rated and popular photo editor app and one that was highly recommended by our readers. There is a host of editing options including red-eye removal, a whiten teeth option, a one-click enhance tool, borders, filters, and you can even preview effects using the Pixlr Live feature. Of course, there is also the range of basic tools like crop and rotate. It’s a solid editor with a lot of options and it’s from Autodesk, a big name in graphic design.
