With Android's industry leading camera, everyone can be a photographer. So whether you're taking photos for a wedding, shooting pictures for inspiration, or taking selfies, you can definitely use a good photo editing app. 

There are multitudes of apps on the Google Play store that can offer your Android phone filters and stickers for your photos - they'll all do the job. However, not all of them will do the job right, so here are the 4 best apps for photo editing as told by this Gaming App Developer.



Bonfire Photo Editor
Instagram doesn't have anything on Bonfire. This app boasts over 100 different effects and filters so whether you want to look like an Andy Warhol painting or a comic book hero, Bonfire is the app you're looking for. 

It is free-to-download and comes with basic editing tools including highlight, shadow, and temperature adjustment. The Bonfire allows you to quickly compare your original photo with the edited version and easily share your work on social media in 4K resolution.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
If you're someone who uses Photoshop-family-programs frequently, the Lightroom mobile app is the perfect addition to your suite. Lightroom instantly syncs with Adobe Creative Cloud, giving you access to all your edited photos anywhere. 

Along with a watered down version of the tools in the desktop version of Lightroom, the app gives you the ability to save and copy your favorite pre-sets so you can quickly edit across multiple photos.

Photo Director
This app comes with some of the more complex editing tools like RGB color channels, white balance, and HSL sliders. Additionally, if you want to get rid of an unwanted person in the background or you want to crop the photo without losing too much, the app comes with a content-aware cropping and object removal feature. 

Photo Director also has a collage maker where you combine several photos in a variety of tasteful layouts. The app is free-to-download, and if you absolutely need to save your photos in 4K resolution, you can purchase an upgrade.

VSCO Cam
If you're tired of Instagram, VSCO is a really fun alternative. It comes with editing tools similar to Instagram as well as a set of more complex tools for those who really want to get into the nitty gritty of editing. It also comes with standard set of filters as well as additional filters you can buy separately. 

The best thing about VSCO is it's community. Similar to Instagram, you can share your work, like, comment, and follow other people's collections, but in order to keep focus on the photography, VSCO keeps likes, comments, and followers private.

Whether you have experience editing photos or you just like taking them, a good photo editor for your smartphone will help you to make your shots picture-perfect. If you want to throw a filter on your selfie and post it to social media, or if you want to carefully edit your macro-nature shot, these apps will help you edit your photos quickly and hassle-free.
