Best Photo editing application for Android
There are plenty of apps and services to help you edit your photos without much effort. But sometimes when you want a more creative approach the use of a mobile app is great. Not only does it bring out the natural look and style, but you’ll be able to touch up those areas that have been left untouched by your desktop or laptop-based photo editing. One such application is Adobe Photoshop Express, also available for iOS as well as Android. This app is super easy to navigate through the tools in the interface and once you select an area you can do all sorts of things with your phone or tablet. If you want something more advanced I would recommend using Lightroom Studio on your iPad or iPhone as this would give you control over how images are edited and saved and it also allows you to share your work. This is one of my favorite apps for photo editing out there, there are many more than I will cover here so if you want to see how you can improve your photography I believe it is the best image processing software out there.
First, download the app from the App Store and launch the app within an emulator, open up the settings at the top of the app when you go to the dashboard. From here you can choose the type of filters or effects you want to apply to your photos. Once you find the filter you want you can tap the icon to convert your images into presets and import them into any format. You can also change the color scheme on the fly by swiping right on your device. With these options enabled you’re completely free to edit your photos however you like. Your pictures should start looking their best when they arrive on the screen. These presets can be used in multiple different ways but the main thing is each preset is built to produce specific results.
The basic process will start off with choosing a few presets from the Filter menu and then begin selecting your chosen filters. When you’ve done everything you need to adjust the preset. The first thing you’ll notice in any file is the missing black pixels around the edges of your image. To fix that you must manually delete the area that has whites and blacks removed. Tap the back button and you will be able to restore the edited image. As with anything, some areas may not return correct output. In this case I had one spot that was grayed out but after I changed it the green and pink squares returned. So next, I selected my presets and chose my preferred colors. Now I am unable to revert the changes I made because I cannot change the original grayish image because I cannot insert new images into that particular folder. Then after making sure the image looks better I will now go through the Effect menu and select some more filters to make my pictures look even worse. For example, I decided I wanted the background blur effect to come across all the way across the entire image so I selected this one and added that extra layer. All these choices were made at the beginning of the app so there was no chance I missed any important detail during the edits.
The editor has four functions and two panels that show all the presets you’ve applied along with the grid. They can easily be rearranged, moved and deleted, and at the top of the palette there is the list of the affected areas. Underneath the preview, there is a menu that lets us configure our preferences and adjust the size of the preview. Some of the items contained in the Preview panel include:
Moveable Layers & Contours: Move layers and contours.
Movement Tracking: Track the movement of elements across the frame.
Masking & Background Color Mapping: Mask out unwanted elements on the background.
Gradients: Create gradients between two frames or individual objects.
Hints: Show hints for what the program thinks is going to happen next in the edit process.
Mask: Enforce your mind when masks aren’t working and mask out affected areas when they are.
