App to edit photos on mobile

1. PicsArt Photo Studio

PicsArt is an app for editing photos and videos, available for Android and iOS in a free version. Some features within the app are part of the Gold version and need a subscription to be used.

The subscription can be for a year or a month, and is managed by the store, meaning you cannot use the same account on two different operating systems. With PicsArt, in addition to being able to use more basic features such as effects, filters, borders, add text to the image, adjust brightness, contrast and saturation, there is much more to explore in the Free version.




You can blur the image as much as you want and you can “clone” which is a tool that can be used to remove blemishes from the face, for example. You can even add stickers and draw free lines.

Also, you can make montages, change the photo background, make an overlay, adjust the color curve and use the scatter effect, where you can put a pixel effect on your photo, as if the photo element is falling apart in the air.

So, we can say that PicsArt is a great application for editing photos and has several other free features.

2. Adobe Lightroom

Like PicsArt, Lightroom, one of Adobe's editors, offers tools that are free and other in-app purchases that are paid. Both deliver a worthy professional edition, if you know how to use the program correctly.

With it, you can adjust the quality of the photo, add noise or increase sharpness, change the light, insert presets (filters), use the pre-defined adjustments that automatically “Up” the photo and much more. The app is available for both Android and iOS.
