photo editing

Android photography, yes you heard me right  , with the rise of social media where everything posted is more of visual than textual having a great android editing app is key. Not until a few months ago i edited my photos with only the filters that were provided by the camera option i had on my phone and  when i would feel creative i would use the Instagram filters which by the way are equally as awesome but at the same time they never looked as awesome as the ones i had seen on Instagram . If  you are looking to up  and spice  your photography editing skills or you just want to have a perfect photo each time then this article is for you, especially for all my team android users this is for you . In this article we will be looking at my best android apps that i use to edit photos and i promise you they will change your life not only are they free but they also do the work .


If you do not already own this app , get to your play store right now and install it. Snap seed is not only  a powerful editing app but its completely free and ad free , i mean it cant get any better than that and its available for android users. Trust me guys when i first used this app i was amazed by its capabilities , its like a one stop shop and we all know how much we like those . If you enjoy adding details to your photos then snap seed is meant for you.  Snap seed offers both editing of  JPG and RAW format pictures meaning that if you own a DSLR camera this could be an amazing editing app .It offers filters that increase or reduce saturation with lots of  features such as  white balance, HDR , vignette, drama , an array of selective brushes , healing , glamour glow and tonal contrast just to mention a few. Some refer to snap seed as an Instagram competitor in terms of its editing power.

as  you can see in the two photos just with two features accentuate and drama 01 i was able to get this dull picture to an appealing version . Donot even think twice guys get to your play stores and download this amazing app.


This here is a must have android editing app especially if you love to post pictures  on Instagram . What is the preview app you may ask, well its an app that allows you to plan a theme for your Instagram photos moreover, it also gives you analytics like which hashtags are popular with your posts, what times are perfect to post and it allows you to schedule your Instagram posts as well. The preview app is mostly used as a planning tool however if you upgrade to their pro version which will only cost you 8$ a month you can enjoy the array of  theme filters they have from warm, black and white, colorful, fall, brown, white which is personal favorite and achieve a seamless look for all your Instagram photos . If design and layout is something you are looking for then the preview app is for  you. Even without upgrading to the pro version you can edit your  photos  on your android  phone with their brightening tools, blemish smoothers, filters and stickers


with over 850 plus fantastic effects, stylish filters and awesome montages this android editing app is for those who seek a fun and artistically creative photography experience .

some  honorable mentions you could also check out are pics art, light room, darkroom, overlays,face tune , aviary and pics pro just to mention a few. Which android editing apps work for you.  Do drop a comment . As always see you in the next post .

    I feel like sometimes, I’m not sure how the picture is suppose to pop. Just adding a filter doesn’t help if you aren’t sure of the pictures potential to begin with.

      I get you dear sometimes picture quality does matter. However with apps such as snapseed you can take a normal picture to another level.

    These Android Apps offer some nice functionality! I looked up to find out if they are available for iPhone/IOS (which is what I use) and SnapSeed and PhotoLab do. Yay! Thanks for the point in the right direction. I usually edit on my desktop; this will be more convenient when I travel.
