Photo editing is important in the world of social media. When it comes to posting a #wokeuplikethis picture in the morning or an aesthetic picture of a delicious dish that you are having in a restaurant, you always want to give it a quick edit to glam it up for your virtual world friends.

So here is a list of photo editing apps you can download on your mobile that can help you to beautify your pictures with a quick and easy edit.

1. Adobe Photoshop Express: Photo Editor Collage Maker

This app is the mobile version of the software, Adobe Photoshop, that professional photographers have on their computers for photo editing. Along with many other features, this app lets you do quick fixes, add filters, remove noise, apply blur, and add text.

Although this app calls itself the mobile version of the editing giant, it doesn’t give you much control over your photo, unlike its PC version. But still, it is one of the best apps if you are interested in quick edits and filters.

2. Snapseed

This app is loved by almost every mobile-photographer. Snapseed has features that let you do colour correction, adjust perspective, heal spots, hide patches, add textures and much more. After recent updates, the app lets you add filters as well.

This app is preferred by professionals as well since it hands over so much control to the user. As the app’s AI is pretty good, its auto edit feature does a decent job as well. With many hidden features, in the end, it all comes down to how you make maximum use of it.

3. Adobe Lightroom – Photo Editor & Pro Camera

Quite like its PC version, Lightroom mobile is all about colour correction. It gives you complete control over the colours of your picture and lets you change any particular colour to a shade you want. It also lets you alter a colour’s hue, saturation and luminosity.

You can link your PC’s Lightroom account to download and use your presets. You can create your own presets as well. If you buy the premium version, it lets you access many additional features of Lightroom.

4. PicsArt Photo Editor: Pic, Video & Collage Maker

Perfect for the ones who want to add a creative touch to their pictures, PicsArt has features that let you add photo effects, photo filters, video editor, add images from the free image library, face editor and a lot more.

Creators often use its double exposure or layer feature to superimpose images and give an artistic touch to their images.

The PicsArt app keeps updating itself and comes up with new features, effects and filters often. To get additional features and to have unlimited access to its image library and stickers, you can also buy the paid version of the app.

5. StoryLab – Insta Story Art Maker For Instagram

Not the perfect ‘photo editing app’ as such, but if you are someone who regularly uses Instagram, this app is a blessing for you.

Made especially for creating Instagram stories, this app lets you make collages with your pictures, or even add overlays to make your Instagram story interesting.

You can use the templates that come with the app. StoryLab also lets you do basic editing on your photo with Insta filters, text, stickers and brush.

Given its size and platform limitations, no photo editing app on mobile is perfect and can be named ‘all in one’. With each having its unique speciality, most professional photographers and Instagrammers use a combination of apps to get their desired effect.
