Photo editing applications are an exceptional offering to all those who love clicking the best moments of their lives. Who doesn’t like to keep these memories alive for years and when you have the right editing app there with you, the memory gets enhanced prominently.

Among the most important photography editing applications for Android, we are presenting a compilation of the most interesting and the most popular ones. I recommend downloading those that are available free of cost for the users. The apps have been organized in the order of the preference, and thus you can browse through them one after another.

1. Snapseed

It is free and will turn your Android phone into a complete editing station with basic settings such as filters, brightness, contrast or exposure and more advanced settings that includes editing by areas using your finger, removing spots, HDR, blur the background or double exposure and much more to it.

Snapseed’s interface is straightforward to use, has a very intuitive design and "painting" with your finger does not become cumbersome.

This app can make any novice photo editor feel like a pro. Touch Retouch is a remarkable photo editing tool that assists you in removing unwanted items from your images. Since TouchRetouch isn’t a full-featured photo editing tool, it packed in some extra features to compensate like Clone stamp, before/after button, Undo/Redo and rich exporting functionality.

9. Retouchme

Retouchme is one of my favorite photo editing apps. The variety of filters and the quality of the app is what makes it one of the best apps to edit photos. It is not as versatile as Snapseed but the filters are excellent, and you can do the basic editing for exposure, contrast, crop, color temperature, and focus settings.

Besides, it allows retouching photos by layers and different areas, which will be of great help when converting each one of your snapshots into a small work of art. There is a filter store that is worth watching. There are really good presets that you can get with it. The minimalist design perfectly compliments the app.

Pixlr is a popular app that competes directly with Snapseed with some extra bunch of features and more advanced tools. With Pixlr you can use the camera from the app itself, something that is not possible with most of the competitor apps. In terms of editing, in addition to basic settings, you can blur, repair lights and shadows or crop the image.

11. Adobe Photoshop Express​​​​​​​

Photoshop can scare those who come first to the world of photo editing, but its mobile version is simplified to make it much more intuitive and easy to use. Photoshop Express is a free and compressed offering of its desktop version. With it, you can make a quick and advanced edition of your photos directly from the phone.
