Top 5 free photo editing apps


by Kate Heslop| 06 January 2014

We pick five of the best photo editing editing apps that are free to download on iOS and Android.

With more and more people using their phones to take pictures rather than cameras, the use of mobile photo sharing apps such as Instagram and Snapchat has soared too, with photos more likely to get edited and shared using phones and tablets rather than on computers.

This means that it is becoming more unlikely that you would take a picture using the camera on your phone, only then to transfer it to your laptop to edit on Photoshop and then upload to Facebook. Editing capabilities on phones have become more advanced, with Instagram leading the way for hundreds of photo editing apps. We pick ten of the best that are available on Android and iOS and are all free to download.

Now available on Android as well as iOS, the app has taken the spotlight away from other serious editing apps such as the Photoshop series. Users can play with brightness, contrast and colour temperature control, with a wide range of brushes for fine detailing. Although it is free to download there are some in-app purchases, so you may have to pay for extra filters and tools.
