This list has been compiled taking note of five paid apps and five free apps. There are many photo-editing apps on the market, but a lot of them are not worth your time. For example, many free photo-editing apps are poorly created so that you will purchase the paid upgrades.
This list has free apps that are still pretty good even though they are free. The paid apps are currently the best on the market for being convenient, easy to use and have enough tools to satisfy most Android users.
Best Photo Editing apps For Android
Touch Retouch – Free
- This app allows you to remove certain elements from your images.

- You can touch up the image to remove small things such as skin blemishes and red eye, or you can cut entire objects from the background if you like.

PicSay Pro for $3.74
- There is a free version of this, but the paid version should be mentioned because it has many added features.
- If you have gotten used to using the free version then this app will take very little extra learning.

After Focus – Free
- This allows you to create photos that look more like DSLR photos.
- It is a nice little app if you want to make certain objects more obvious, or if you want to give your images a certain amount of depth.
- It allows you to adjust the focus of an image after the fact, i.e. not whilst you are taking the photo.
- If you are willing to invest your time into altering and saving your image so that you can re-load older versions for when you mess it up–then you can create some very good looking photos with this app.
Awesome Miniature Pro for $3.30
- You can add depth to your images with this app using what is known as tilt-shift.

- It is primarily a tilt shift app that allows you to create some good looking images, but it also has a few filters and editing tools for you to play with.
- There is a free version of this app that has not been covered on this article because it limits usage too much, to the point where you may as well download one of the other (better) free apps listed in this article.
Little Photo – Free
- This is an app that has the usual basic features such as resize and allows you to add frames etc.
- What sets this app apart is that you can add a number of image filters.

PhotoShake! Pro for $1.65
- With this app you can make photo collages. You can add images in a random fashion by shaking your phone.
- It is a cute little method of creating random collages. You pick your images and shake it up to see what comes out.
- If the collage is not great then you can keep shaking until it looks great. It is better than trying the same technique in real life because your photos remain upright.
- Normally you will find that some of your images look great together and then there are patches where the photos don’t look so great. In this case you can alter the boring spots manually and move images into their spot.
- You can add speech bubbles too, which can be really funny if you have one photo image character talking about an image that is close by.
Pixlr-o-matic – Free
- This is an app that has lots of different image filters for you to play with.
- The filters are set up in three different categories, there are photo filters, photo frames and light filters.
