Fotor: Annoyed about toggling between your photo editor and a collage maker? Fotor’s versatility might just be what you need. First, it’s the app’s cool box of editing tools like the ‘one tap enhance’ that instantly ‘fixes’ your snapshots. Then, it’s a long list of 100 effects (both on the pre-set bar and additional stuff you can snag on the store) and professional photo editing tools including the ‘Focus’ feature that lets you chose a focal point to create a high definition finish. The app’s choice of over 100 classic and magazine collage templates makes it ultra handy.
Snapseed: It has been the ‘go to’ photo editing App for quite a few iPhone and Android users for some time now with its easy to use interface and impressive set of editing tools. It’s also one of the best ‘tablet friendly’ photo editors. The app’s ‘Tune image’ option takes care of instant fixes while the perspective correction tool is quite nifty too. Snapseed’s most useful feature is the ‘go back and re-edit’ feature’ in case you want to re-tweak an edited image.
Camera MX: There’s more than one reason why this app is soaring on the Android popularity charts. Camera MX can replace your default Android camera with a promise of sharper images and an interesting ‘Live Image’ feature. It does all this and more with a simple and intuitive user interface. However the app’s killer feature is its distinctive ‘Shoot the past’ that captures grabs of your image a few seconds before you actually thought you shot it. Handy if you want to go back a few seconds in time to get the perfect sunrise shot or eliminate a photobomb!
Qwik: if your idea of mobile photography is fun and more fun, Qwik has enough to keep you smiling. Take 600 filters, throw in countless fonts and frames and you have a recipe for sure shot entertainment. Images are ridiculously easy to edit and if you are looking beyond Instagram to share your images, Qwik’s online community is a great platform.
VSCO Cam: Inclined more towards serious photographers, this app lets you connect with other like-minded photographers aside from enhancing your images. Your follower count is not displayed; your images matter more here than your clout! There’s a host of controls and edit modes (both free and paid; the app itself is free) including the unique before and after comparisons, that let the serious photographer in you take over.
Flickr: might be perceived as a photo sharing and cloud storage app but Flickr also has a few editing options in its bag of tricks. Don’t expect the same editing capabilities as some of the professional apps but Flickr can handle edits, adding filters and cropping images (directly from the camera roll) with ease. Add 1TB of free cloud storage for your photo gallery and suddenly Flickr becomes an absolute must- have.
