Best Editing Apps

Smartphone photography has become heavily reliant on little artistic tweaks, such as color filters, vintage effects, contrast or color adjustments. So, in order to make your photos look better, here are the best editing apps:

1. Photo Editor (Aviary)

The Photo Editor by Aviary is a comprehensive photo editing app on which you can do just about anything you desire.

    PicSay Pro has over 65,000 five-star ratings on the Android, and this makes it one of the most beloved and trusted photo editing tools for Android smartphones, with easy options for exporting photos on Flickr, Picasa or Facebook. It’s also a lot of fun to use because you can adorn your friends’ pretty faces with mustaches, insert text bubbles, or you can simply add different effects to photos.

        4. Adobe Photoshop Touch

        Most professional photographers are already familiar with the desktop version of Adobe Photoshop—one of the most powerful photo manipulation programs—so they were more than eager to try out its companion app, now available for Android. The app basically brings all the important features of Photoshop to the Android OS, and even if it may seem a little difficult to understand at first, if you persevere, you will soon find out that its editing capabilities go far beyond that of Instagram or Aviary.

            Best Photography Apps

            When it comes to photography, the most important process is definitely the shooting. You can easily edit a photo that has good light and decent framing, and with the following smartphone photography apps the process will be very simple. Learn how to change the mood of the camera, the light intake and many other things, in order to capture the most beautiful pictures.

            1. Camera360 Ultimate

            At the moment, this is the most popular photo app and it also offers a cloud platform to manage files, plus eight shooting modes (including quick-shoot, self-portrait and audio mode). Camera360 is the best app for those who are still working their way around the Android OS because every shooting and editing option has little notes and descriptions. The app also has a “funny-photography” mode, with which you can create Andy Warhol-style or ghost pics.

                  4. Retro Camera

                      Best Sharing Apps

                      We live in an age of hyper-mobility, and this has made us heavily reliant on technology. Sharing photos through various social media platforms has become a normal daily habit. Here are five photo sharing apps for Android that will make your life easier:

                      1. Instagram

                      Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years, you probably know what Instagram is. The app was purchased by Facebook a while back, and at the moment, it is the most popular social platform for sharing photos online. As a matter of fact, Instagram could easily be featured in the editing category as well, but we decided that its most notable impact has been as a sharing medium. So, if you want people to see, like, and share your photographs, you should definitely become a member of the huge Instagram community.

                      Top 20 Photography Apps 11

                        2. Postagram

                        Postagram is indeed a photo-sharing app, but it may not be the type of sharing that you had in mind. With it, you can turn photographs into high-resolution postcards, printed on glossy paper, and send them anywhere in the world for little over a dollar. If you are traveling around the world, you can easily stay in touch with your loved ones at home.

                          3. SnapChat

                          Snapchat has a funny way of sharing your photographs with the rest of the world. The whole idea is to quickly take a funny video or photo and then send it over to your friends. As soon as they see it, it will disappear.

                            4. DropBox

                            Dropbox is undoubtedly the best tool for sharing images—with yourself. Forget about the days when you had to connect your smartphone to your computer through USB. With Dropbox, all you have to do is connect to the internet on both devices and it will automatically share your photos, documents and videos. If you want to access your files, you can simply share a link with friends and family.

                              5. Flickr

                              Flickr is one of the most popular platforms for people who like to share their photos. It lets its users take pictures with the app’s camera, and instantly share it on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr groups. Like Instagram, it also has a few editing features, and it is hands-down the best way to share high-resolution photos.

                                Even if you are a professional photographer, it is impossible to carry your camera around all the time. Luckily for you, the trusty smartphone is always there, and thanks to the incredible developments in technology, it might just save your life the next time you’re feeling inspired. Here are the best professional photography apps for Android:

                                1. PerfectShot

                                  2. Golden Hour

                                  There is a saying among photographers that the best hours to take pictures are the first one and the last one of the day. They also refer to it as the “golden hour”, but sometimes it’s hard to tell exactly when that hour is. With the Golden Hour app, you can easily calculate the best time for taking high-quality photos, according to your current location, date and season. As if this wasn’t enough, the app also has a weather forecast feature.

                                  Top 20 Photography Apps 17

                                          40 Top Productivity Apps for iPhone (2019 Updated)

                                          Over the years here at Lifehack, we’ve discussed plenty of apps that you can use to improve your overall productivity.

                                          There are certain ones that many of our contributors and editors (past and present) have adopted over the long-term — there are always the stalwarts that stick around. But there are also new apps that crop up every day, adding more and more depth to the app category.

                                          Some of the apps are incredibly plain and simple, while others are more robust and offer more features than you can shake a stick at. And everyone has the one they prefer.

                                          It’s been our job (and still is our job) to keep abreast of all of the productivity-type apps out there. As a result — and as a bit of a refresher — we’ve put together a list of 40 best productivity apps for iPhone (all categorized based on their functions) to provide you with an all-in-one resource for you.
