Photo Editing Mobile Apps That Will Make You Look like a Pro

When was the last time you took a photo with a camera that wasn’t connected to a mobile device? If you’re like the majority of smartphone users, you probably don’t remember. Technology has come a long way since the days of grainy flip phone photos. High-quality cameras are now built into most smartphone devices, and while they may not  produce as great of shots as standalone professional cameras, mobile cameras are continuously improving.

Apple’s iPhone X and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 are raising the standard for smartphone cameras. Both devices feature dual-rear cameras, portrait mode and image stabilization. Outside of professional photographers, the need for a standalone camera is becoming obsolete. And let’s be honest — you can’t beat the convenience of having an excellent camera in your pocket at all times.

Whether you’re trying to up your Instagram game, send fun images to your friends or transform your vacation snapshots into a sophisticated gallery wall, these photo editing mobile apps will become your new best friend.


This free all-in-one photo editing app is supported on both iOS and Android. The app offers advanced editing tools in an easy-to-use interface. With preset filters and color, exposure and focus adjustments, your social media followers will never guess that you snapped your photo from a mobile device. The app’s Fusion tool allows users to create an editing preset that can be applied to all of your images, making it perfect for developing a cohesive Instagram feed.


This app is the secret behind all of the best selfies. Just as the name suggests, FaceTune is a mobile app that’s designed for making adjustments to your appearance. Users can upload their image on the app and easily whiten teeth, remove dark circles, minimize wrinkles, fill in hair and even apply makeup.

Google Photos

The one drawback to using a smartphone as your primary camera is the dreaded (and inevitable) “Storage Almost Full” message. But with Google’s Photos app, you’ll never have to sacrifice your images to free up space again. The free app backs up your images so that you can access them from any device. It makes sharing images with friends and family easy, and gives you peace of mind knowing that your photos won’t vanish if something happens to your phone.


Snapchat and Instagram Stories led to the rise of photos with filters and face effects. Who doesn’t love taking a selfie with the flower crown filter? With over 800 million users worldwide, the popular Camera360 app features over 200 filters, live effects and stickers that let you bring the fun from Snapchat to photos in your camera roll.
