Top 5 Photo Editing Apps For Android and iOS

What’s up guys and welcome to today’s new video on the top 5 photo editing apps for Android. There are lots of photo editing apps on Playstore and Appstore and instead of trying to figure out which one to use, I have put together the best 5 you should download and use. So without much ado, let’s get started.

Lightroom mobile

The first app on the list is Lightroom mobile. This I can boldly say is the most professional mobile photo editing app from Adobe. The app offers lots of tools to make editing of photos on your phone very simple.

You can edit raw photos and easily change brightness, contrast, highlights, saturation, and other properties with simple sliders. These sliders give you full control over your editing process even on mobile.

There are tools to help you crop your photo and give it a proper composition if need be. You can also view and compare different versions of your photo and select the look you want without losing the original photo.

For people who do not really have the time or know which features to adjust to get the look they want, Lightroom offers good looking presets which you can apply for instant results. One of the features I like about this app is its smart organization feature.

This feature uses Artificial intelligence to organize your photos by giving them tags based on the people or objects in them. This makes it easier to search for your photos with a single keyword. So if you’re looking for a professional photo editing app with all the features you can think of, then get Adobe Lightroom.


I found out about Snapseed a few years ago and I instantly fell in love with the app. It’s my go-to photo editing app for most of my photos. As soon as you import your photo into snapseed, the app gives you some looks or filters you can use to transform your photos instantly.

You choose any of the looks and edit them to suit your photo or start your own custom editing with the variety of editing tools the app has to offer. There’s a tuning tool for editing the brightness, contrast, ambience, shadows, and even warmth of your photo.

Other tools include the details tool to make details of photos pop. The crop tool for reducing your photos to standard sizes. You can fix skewed lines with the perspective tool. The white balance tool helps adjust the colors in your photo to give it a natural look. If there are unwanted objects or persons in your photo, you can remove them with the healing tool.

You can also use the text tool to apply text to your photo. There are different types of text styles to choose from. The drama tool, vintage, lens blur, brush, face enhance and other editing tools make Google’s snapseed one of the best photo editing apps you can download.


Afterlight is the next app on the list. This photo editing app offers simple tools for quick and straightforward editing. It features basic photo editing tools to give you instant results. Just like any other editing app, Afterlight has vintage filters you can apply to your photo to give that old film look. Other textures and photo effects such as light leaks can be added to better enhance your photo.

Afterlight also has a cropping tool that gives you 15 different presets to crop your photo to your liking. In all this app is a good photo editor for quick and easy edits.


If you’ve just taken a photo and want to quickly edit and post it on social media, then VSCO is your go-to app. This app has a library of over 200 awesome filters that can drastically improve your photo instantly. You can even reduce the intensity of the filters to your preference.

As if not enough, Vsco also has custom photo editing tools you can use to make your own changes to your photo. You can adjust exposure, contrast, clarity, white balance, skin tones, split toning, and more.

After editing, you can share your photo directly to your Instagram feed or stories and even on WhatsApp and other social media platforms. There’s also the VSCO community where you can share your photos and also pick inspirations from other users in the community.

Inshot photo editor

Inshot photo editor is a decent photo editor that offers a new editing style with loads of filters, stickers, and other effects together with its traditional photo editing tools. With over 60 filters such as Lomo, pink, dew, dark and warm, you can change the look of your photo with a single tap.

Filters can be adjusted to suit your photo. Other photo effects such as background blur, glitch, light leaks, splash, dust and scratches, fog, and others are all available to add even more dimension to your photo.

You can create collages with your photos from over a hundred grids, frames, and filters. Inshot is a very good and simple photo editing app and I bet you’ll like it for all the many photo effects it has to offer.
