We humans love to capture important moments in our life. Taking photos is getting easier and easier as even phones nowadays tend to have really good cameras. We share loads of photos via various social media channels such as Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and if you want to stand out from the myriad of images, you should edit your photos before posting them. Making that horizon straight, slightly intensifying the colours and cropping unwanted edges can make a huge difference. But which photo editing apps are the best? We’re introducing five of the most useful editing apps out there.

Google Photos

With Google Photos, you can save all your photos in the cloud so that they’re available on all your devices as long as you have an internet connection. The app also allows you to edit photos with the help of a variety of creative tools. You can share albums, create shared albums, and easily share photos to other social media platforms. It can also create animations and collages of your photos.



Instagram is without a doubt one of the most popular photo editing tools out there. It’s Android’s greatest photo app because you cannot only use the creative tools and filters to edit your photos, you can even share them with your social network. You can also share your creations with your wider network on Facebook, Tumblr or Twitter, earn likes, or even follow some of your favourite brands and celebrities.
