The cameras in smartphones are constantly upgrading in quality, and their quality is close to that of point-and-shoot cameras. Owing to optical image stabilization and high megapixel sensors, people are increasingly using their smartphones for taking photos, rather than digital cameras.
Editing pictures is quite like offering a painting the finishing touches. Unless the finishing touch is given, the look of a photograph is often not as great as it can be. There are a large number of image editing apps that can help you give that finishing touch to your images in an impressive way. Among them, here are the best ones that you can consider using to give an amazing look and feel to your images.
1. Photoshop CC:
Price: From £17.58/$29.99 per month
It came as a surprise for many when Photoshop CS6 was replaced with Photoshop CC, rather than Photoshop CS7. And this surprise turned into dismay when people came to know that they can avail the software only through the service of Creative Cloud subscription.
Photoshop CC is an outstanding image editing app, and has such a large number of features that all of them can’t be illustrated in such a small space. But, you can have a look at its 15 most impressive features here.
The latest Photoshop undoubtedly makes an excellent image editing application, perhaps the best you can find. But, you need to pay for it.

Platform: Android, iOS
Pixlr is “the most popular online photo editor in the world”. The probable reason behind this may be that it’s free. The app features over 600 effects, borders and overlays, and enables you to carry out all the key things that you are likely to do with a photo editor, ranging from whitening teeth and removing red-eye to re-sizing and cropping. If you are comfortable with using Photoshop, the user interface of Pixlr would then be easy for you to grasp quickly, as it’s quite like Photoshop.

3. Image Editor by Aviary
Platform: Windows Phone, iOS, Android
If you have a Windows Phone, Image Editor by Aviary is a great app you can consider to tweak pictures. Although this application still works well, please note that the developers of the app have stopped updating the app’s Windows Phone version from 2013. The app is being actively developed for Andriod and iPhone. Through this app, you can easily add stickers, drawings and text to images. Besides, it comes with all the basic image editing tools like rotate, crop, effects and filters. The app doesn’t have many advanced features, but if you are a casual user, it won’t be an issue for you.

4. PicsArt Photo Studio
Platform: Windows 8.1, Windows Phone, iOS, Android
If you are looking for photo editing features focusing on stuff like collages, PicsArt is the way to go. The primary focus of this app is collages, and so, it comes with loads of features needed for collages. However, you would still find the basic image editing features like adjustments, controls and filters, as well as a few unusual features such as stickers and finger-painting. This is a great free app, and you are going to love it if you are a fan of collages. However, if an app with a bit of more depth is what you want, you may go for trying some other option.
