Hello, Mi Fans!

          Smartphone cameras have become quite advanced for a long time to take photos that are not inferior to expensive cameras. But no matter how high-quality and successful photos come out, it can be even better if you edit it correctly. In the open spaces of the playmarket, you can find many applications for photo processing, each with its own interface, a different set of functions and tools. Some are as simple as possible, and in order to understand others, you will have to try.

          Facetune is a simple photo editor for a mobile device, the main purpose of which is to process selfies and portraits. With it, you can crop, rotate, reflect the photo, give a smile whiteness, bring eyes, even out skin tone, add filters, frames and much more. The result can be immediately put on social networks right from the program.With all its advantages, the application works quite quickly. It is good and simple and intuitive interface, which is easy to understand. If you like photos from the cover of glossy magazines, then Facetune is exactly what you need. The application itself is free, but it has a rather intrusive advertisement that only purchase of the paid version will allow to get rid of.

          Graphic editor Polarr attracts with its possibilities of working with color, it is a change in temperature, saturation, tone, brightness, sharpness, lighting and other parameters. And each shade of the palette can be customized separately. There are so many options that it may take a lot of time to study them all.Polarr has both built-in complex filters, and the ability to create your own and, importantly, share them with others. Soon, the developers promise to add support for the layers, which will bring Polarr as a graphics editor to a new level, especially for professional photographers. The basic version of the editor Polarr is free, although it contains an optional paid content, but the Pro-version of the Polarr with advanced functionality already costs money.

          If you briefly describe the essence of Prisma, then this application allows you to redraw any image in a couple of actions in the manner of works of classical artists. Turning your own photo into the creation of Munch, Levitan or Picasso is, at least, interesting. Moreover, the process itself is extremely simple, takes little time and does not require additional manipulations. If your goal is to turn photos into objects of art, then the Prisma application will come in handy.

          If we talk about the beautiful, then Aviary has a whole set of ready-made effects and filters in the style of instagram, divided into collections, as well as the ability to add text to the photo or various decorative images. In general, Aviary is a nice editor with wide capabilities and user-friendly interface, which is easy to understand even for a person as far as possible from applications with functions of graphic editors.

        Another popular photo processing application is Afterlight. It boasts a stylish and modern design, as well as a minimalist interface. At startup, the user can select the camera or editor mode. Camera mode allows you to take photos with certain filters and effects immediately, the editor is responsible for post-processing.There are standard settings for editors in the form of changes in brightness, contrast, noise removal and so on. But if there is no desire to mess with them manually, you can always turn to ready-made presets. Available imitations of camera film, texture, glare, overlay on the image of geometric shapes and frames, for example, a polaroid frame. Unfortunately, not all available features are free, so you will have to pay extra for some options if you wish.

          The main idea of ​​the developers of Pixlr is to give the user something more than the ability to change photos on a click, choosing from ready-made solutions and having time to get bored with the instagram filters. And for this, Pixlr has all the tools: rotation, cropping, tuning in size and aspect ratio, auto-correction and auto-contrast. But a truly graphical editor is revealed when you go to the “Settings” item, where really wide possibilities are opening up to change your photo. At first glance, all this may seem unnecessarily complicated, but if you don’t be lazy and sorted out, then with Pixlr you can make a small masterpiece from a photo. Pixlr is completely free, but you will have to put up with built-in advertising or pay for its absence.

        PicsArt has everything that a good graphic editor for a mobile device should have: fine-tuning photo settings, filters familiar to everyone that make an image look modern and stylish, the ability to add frames, geometric shapes, text, stickers and more. PicsArt really has a lot to choose from. In the application, you can not only edit your own photos, but also look at other people's work and even subscribe to the most liked authors, and your subscriptions will form a ribbon with new creations. Among the minuses of the application - mandatory registration and a huge number of paid options with not the lowest price tags. But to buy something on a mandatory basis, of course, no one forces.

         VSCO is one of the best photo processing apps on your mobile device. Although you cannot call it just an application, it’s a whole platform that allows you to overlay beautiful filters, fine-tune your shots, and also enjoy weekly digests of the best photos. With VSCO, you can customize the camera by adjusting the ISO, shutter speed, focus, and exposure. In edit mode, there is an impressive collection of filters created by developers from scratch without looking at similar ones from competitors, and you can also choose the intensity of each filter. VSCO supports cloud-based synchronization between devices, just log in to access photos from a smartphone and, for example, a tablet at the same time. Together with VSCO, it is easy to turn a simple photo into something stylish and individual.

This is my favorite editor.You can read my topics about him, I will be pleased

         Snapseed is a free and quite powerful image editor in Russian for Android devices. Among the ready-made solutions in Snapseed are styles that are inherently nothing more than the usual filters. True, you cannot edit existing ones, but no one forbids creating your own. Freshly created filter can be saved and applied to other photos.

        Layers, filters, fine-tuning, support for cloud storage technology and intelligent functions: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC is a powerful photo editing tool, the capabilities of which are fully revealed in the hands of advanced users and professionals. However, for a person who does not want to bother, this application is hardly suitable. In addition, with all its advantages, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC is not free, a monthly subscription will cost at least 10 $ a month, depending on the chosen plan.

Thank you for your attention!

Regards, your Jillzy!
