The 10 Best Photo Editing Apps for Android

How do you edit your photos on Android? If you’re anything like me, the answer is usually the same thing I use on my Mac or PC: Adobe Lightroom. However, there are plenty of other options that you can use to edit photos on your phone. These include popular apps like PicsArt, Snapseed, and VSCO (among others). To help you decide which one(s) are right for you, we’ve put together this guide to the 10 best photo editing apps for Android.

1) PicsArt

PicsArt has one of the largest photo editing and creation toolkits out there, but it’s also super easy to use. This app is ideal for users who want a lot of bells and whistles in their photo editor, but still want an interface that doesn’t intimidate them. The number of effects, overlays, stickers, textures, and frames make PicsArt a great way to quickly edit your pics before sharing them on social media or sending them to friends over text or email. PicsArt also makes it easy to create impressive photo collages with pre-set layouts and backgrounds. You can even share your creations on PicsArt Creative World, which showcases popular images from around the world each day. And, if you ever lose inspiration, you can check out what other users are creating using #artisticappsgoals on Instagram (you’ll find all sorts of cool things!)

2) Snapseed


Snapseed is one of my favorite photography apps because it’s easy to use and gives you great-looking photos, with just a few swipes and taps. If you’re looking for something even more powerful, try Snapseed’s sister app, Adobe Lightroom. It will cost you $5 per month to access all of its tools and filters—so it isn’t cheap—but it might be worth your while if editing your photos on a smartphone is too limiting. (Plus, there are cheaper options; you can download only some features for $2.99.)

3) Adobe Lightroom

If you’re looking for an affordable and powerful photo editing app, look no further than Adobe Lightroom. For $9.99 per month, you get access to a tool that allows you to quickly edit photos, as well as make basic edits like adjusting exposure and contrast; removing noise and artifacts; sharpening images; and tweaking shadows, highlights, whites, blacks, clarity and more. The interface is intuitive enough that even amateur users will have no trouble getting started.

4) Photo Editor Pro

Photo Editor Pro

This app is one of those apps that you have to download and give a try because you don’t know what you are missing. It has over 2 million active users, so chances are many of your friends use it as well. You can do everything from color correction to noise reduction, blur effects, etc. I would say 90% of people would use all its features at one time or another! If you have no idea how much better your photo can look after editing, then let me tell you it looks amazing! Here’s my photo before editing: on the left-hand side and after editing – right-hand side:

5) Camera360


This free photo-editing app has a ton of great filters, along with various editing tools like crop, straighten, flip and rotate. It also lets you add stickers and text to your images. The interface is very intuitive and quick—just start taking pictures as you would on your smartphone’s regular camera app. This free photo-editing app has a ton of great filters, along with various editing tools like crop, straighten, flip and rotate.

6) Fotor

Fotor offers a wide range of photo editing options, from quick fixes to extensive changes. For example, you can add text over an image or take a photo from your camera roll. Most effects in Fotor are non-destructive; that is, after you adjust one slider, it won’t affect other parts of your photo. This is important because it means that even if you don’t like how something turns out, you can revert it back to its original state and try again.

7) Facetune

Facetune is an award-winning portrait & selfie photo editor app that allows you to easily remove unwanted objects and perfect your portraits. Transform portraits with one swipe! It’s easy, fun, and addictive! See before and after examples of Facetune below. This amazing face retouching app can turn your best selfies into Hollywood-style images.


You will be amazed at how quick and easy it is to transform any ordinary portrait or photograph into a masterpiece using Facetune’s professional tools like skin refinements, teeth whitening, eye enhancements, lip enhancements, etc. The new Retouch mode provides individual controls over complexion issues such as blemishes or wrinkles making Facetune a must-have tool for all level photographers from amateurs through to professionals.

8) Photoshop Express

Photoshop Express

Photoshop Express is one of my favorite apps, not only because it’s free but also because it has a great layout and even better editing tools. It lets you easily edit photos on your phone with easy-to-use photo editing tools that are built into every photo-editing program. If you don’t want to delve too deeply into Photoshop, but still want to make some adjustments, Photoshop Express is a great starting point. Adobe offers a similar app for desktops called Photoshop Fix. Both offer basic edits like cropping, lightening, and darkening, adding filters, and sharing to social media services.

9) Color Story

Color Story

This photo editor gives you a lot of control over your photos. It has a bunch of color correction options, but most of its features are locked away behind in-app purchases. Still, Color Story is a good option if you’re looking to really tweak your photos and remove elements from them using an eraser tool. Although it doesn’t have quite as many options as some other apps, it is free to download and use. And its simplicity makes it easy to pick up right away.

10) VSCO

VSCO started life as a simple app for editing photos before it was bought by Autodesk and transformed into a full-blown creative studio complete with multiple apps. It’s particularly good for editing color, contrast, exposure, and saturation on your phone or tablet. The mobile version of VSCO is only $2 to download from Google Play. It has over 5 million installs and an average rating of 4.4 stars out of five from over 15,000 reviewers. You can use filters to enhance your photo and also increase clarity if you are taking pictures outside in direct sunlight.
