This post is now over a year old. While I still love the apps in this post, please note that there may be other apps out there that better suit you. Technology advances so quickly! I have a tutorial on my current favorite photo editing app, Afterlight, which you can view here. The popularity of this post on Pinterest has been amazing, and I just wanted to provide an update for those still pinning this post. Thanks for stopping by!!!
I've mentioned before how I do about 90% of my photo editing on my phone. I take pictures with my phone, so the pictures are already there. I spend A LOT of time running my family around. I'm in my car A LOT. I usually utilize this time to do photo editing. I have found the perfect mix of photo editing apps for my Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
1.] Photoshop Express: I mostly use this one to clean up photos. It has a great auto-enhance feature. The best auto-enhance of any of the other apps. It has the basics- cropping, straightening, rotating, flipping. Adjust brightness && colors. Plus, in app sharing option to all social medias.
2.] A Beautiful Mess: I love love LOVE this app. It's my go-to app for Instagram pictures, and Pinterest pin-worthy photos [like the one at the beginning of this post]. The options are endless with this app. I love the adorable doodles you can add, and the versatility of the fonts. I use this app primarily for my watermarks too. I can't recommend it enough.
3.] InstaMag: This is a new addition to the mix. It's a lot like another app I will be discussing, but offers a slightly more modern spin. InstaMag makes collage pictures. Offers over 10,000 possible layouts. It's been my go-to app for the collage style lately.
4.] PhotoGrid: Here's my second collage maker in this list. This one was my favorite prior to the newly available InstaMag. I still believe that PhotoGrid has it's purpose though. It's great to make a collage without too much fuss and distraction. It's simplicity offers a sleeker collage. It also has a video maker quite similar to "Flipagram", for Instagram.
5.] PicsArt: This is probably my favorite true photo editor. This app has every function you could want. I use it frequently to edit my son's blemishes, enhance picture quality, remove unwanted objects from the background of photos, blur objects out in photos, etc etc etc... It really does offer just about anything you could want from a photo editor.
6.] Pixlr-o-matic: This is a fun app to add random artistic touches to your photos. This is myyy favorite app for filters. It has sooooo many. Seriously, if you can't find a filter that suits you with this app, there isn't one that will. Not only does it have a plethora of filters, it has fun overlays that can add sparkle, drama, neon words, and more. One of my favorite pictures of myself of all time [ahah okay, maybe not all time, but I use it a lot] is the one in my About Me section. I edited this phone 100% with this app. I highly recommend this app.
I've recently become obsessed with this app! It's not reallyyy for photos, but you can use photos in it. Magisto is a really cool video editor. You select the video files and pictures from your phone, then choose a theme, and a song. Then Magisto makes your movie for you. I used it a few posts ago to create a quick unboxing video for Mt Baker Vapor. I've had a lot of fun with this app. It makes some fun little videos for ya.
There ya have the top 6 BEST photo editing apps available on Android [according to moi]. I can't recommend these 6 apps enough. They're great and easy to use for anyone from novice to professional. What are your favorite photo apps?
