5 Cool Photo Editing Apps

If you use a smartphone or tablet to take commercial photos, the editors at Business News Daily suggest these photo editing apps for iOS and Android available free or in premium versions at app stores.

Adobe Photoshop Express

Designed for on-the-go photo editing, Adobe Photoshop Express is an entry-level photo editing app that offers a handful of features for quick edits and automatic fixes. Basic editing tools include crop, rotate, flip and red eye removal. You can also enhance photos using slide controls to adjust clarity, contrast, tint, exposure, temperature and more. 

Adobe Photoshop Express can be downloaded for free at the Apple App Store and Google Play marketplace. In-app purchases deliver additional features, such as the Looks pack for additional filters and the Nose Reduction pack to remove grains and speckling. 


Acquired by Google in 2012, Snapseed is a free iOS and Android app that offers a slew of professional-level photo editing features. To polish photos, the Auto Correct feature enhances colors, exposure and contrast in a single tap. The Tune Image feature tweaks brightness, shadows, white balance, saturation and other effects, and the Selective Adjust feature also lets you highlight and focus specific objects or areas. Other features include frames, texture and tone adjustment, and sharing via email, Google+ and more. 

Photo Editor by Aviary

In addition to being able to adjust photo quality — clarity, color correction, contrast, brightness, temperature and the like — Aviary lets users easily enhance and truly personalize their photos. Aviary also features a set of Cosmetic Tools, which gets rid of flaws and blemishes, whitens teeth, and removes red eye.


Camera+ is a powerful photo editing app equipped with several tools to transform images into works of art. One of Camera+'s standout features is the Clarity function — in one tap, Clarity corrects colors, adjusts contrast and brightness, and enhances details to bring life to dull, washed-out photos. 

Other features include digital flash to brighten dark photos; scene modes to create true-to-life photos based on your environment; brushing and layered effects; and borders and captions to for a personalized touch. Camera+ also comes with standard photo editing tools, such as rotation and cropping.  

Camera+ also syncs with iCloud, so you can easily take and edit photos between iCloud-enabled devices. 

Camera+ costs $1.99 for the iPhone and $4.99 for the iPad.
