The smartphones now allow to take pictures worthy of some of the best cameras. They are the ideal tool for sharing photos by MMS, email and social networks, where we generally seek to show its best success … Here are some applications selected by us for photo editing. These are perfect to familiarize you with this noble art.
Google Snapseed: the inevitable
Dating back to 2012 (already), the Snapseed application has been updated many times, having been integrated with Google+ (RIP) for a long time . The tool is now one of the essential for any mobile photographer who respects himself, since it allows you to do almost anything, and without complicating life. It is full of sharp adjustments, but also automatic retouching, can crop the shots, return them, add brush effects on small areas of an image and play with many filters. Small bonus more and more interesting, since high-end smartphones are more and more often ( since Lollipop and the API Camera2 ) compatible with this format: RAW management (DNG) is part of. And it’s not nothing, especially since the editing parameters of a snapshot can be saved to be applied to another image. Snapseed also makes it easy to add stylized text to photos . For us, it’s a blow of heart .
Adobe Lightroom: the mastodonte
Unsurprisingly, the well-known Adobe also offers its services on mobile with Lightroom – whose computer version already has a very good reputation. The free tool allows you to retouch photographs using predefined parameters or much finer adjustments. The software is obviously aimed at users of premium smartphones, since Lightroom takes all its interest when used to retouch photos in RAW format. And besides, the application allows to shoot directly in RAW without going through another application, with a professional mode available to play with many settings.
TouchRetouch: simplicity first and foremost
To complete this selection, we will also mention the excellent TouchRetouch to easily remove “unwanted” elements from your shots (a passer-by on your beautiful landscape, a dirt that hangs on the table where your beautiful plate is yet …).
