If you want to take pictures with your smartphone and quickly share beautiful results, you need effective image editing tools. DW Digital tests the most popular apps. This week: "Photo Editor"
"Photo Editor" is aimed at experienced image editors with Android devices. The technically comprehensive app is available for free in the Google Play-Store.
The application features a wide selection of tools: Contrast enhancement via gradation curve or histogram, spot retouching, and gamma- and perspective correction. You can also crop and rotate your photos, add shapes, or play with blur settings. As a big plus for experienced users, the app allows editing the Exif camera data, which can help keep track of and fine-tune the metadata of your images.
"Photo Editor" might not be suitable for everyone. It is aimed mainly at users with an above-average interest in image editing - fans of preset filters might be disappointed. However, if you're willing to invest some time, you can achieve very good looking results.
Top 3 Pros:
Large selection of tools
Good perspective correction
Top 2 cons:
Advertising in the app (can be turned off for 3,59€)
No prefabricated filters
Price: Free for Android / In-app purchases possible
