Photography are a way of saving in some way the best moments to remember them in the future. This is increasingly easier thanks to the fact that mobiles come with cameras with higher resolution and it is no longer necessary to have specialized cameras to take good photographs. Today, we bring you the 10 best free photo editing apps for Android. You will know almost all, but the truth is that most have been updated enough, and are worth even more.
The advantage of taking pictures with mobile phones is that we can embellish more those moments that we capture, thanks to the number of photo editing applications that currently exist.
The mobile is more comfortable – not better – with respect to a camera, since we can have everything at hand in a simpler way. Shoot, edit and upload the photo, all in less than 10 minutes.
Year after year, Snapseed tops the list of the best photo editor for Android. Why? Because it is the one that best adapts its interface and operation to our mobile. It is intuitive to say enough, so anyone who does not know anything about editing, could do level editions.
As for a more professional level, Snapseed allows us to play with the tone curve, a function that not everyone knows but which is vital when it comes to improving our photography.
It also has incredible tools to remove elements of the photo that we do not like, selective ways to edit by areas, and a few filters for Instagram lovers.
2. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
In second place we have Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, which is, for PC, the best photo editor today. If you have a Lightroom account on your computer, you can synchronize the photos in an incredible way, and that is that you can leave half the editing of a photo on your mobile, to finish it on the PC when you get home.
In the case of Lightroom for Android, basically, it lets us touch the same Snapseed parameters, but in a less intuitive way.
This application is recommended for those who have a few knowledge of photography. If so, Lightroom allows you to have a more precise control over the photo, and its RAW development module is somewhat more powerful than Snapseed.
VSCO is one of the photo editing applications that has been with us all our lives. Besides as an editor, it works as a small social network where you can share all your photos. The editor itself does not stand out too much, although we can get good results.
The magic of VSCO appears when we apply any of its filters. We are probably facing the application with the best Android filters. These, far from being forced and aggressive like Instagram, are pretty well made and balanced.
They give you that perfect look that we look for in our photography, and they can save your shot if it did not shine too much in terms of colors.
From the creators of AutoCAD, Pixlr is a free application to edit photos in 2017 very famous, with more than 1 million votes on Google Play.

5. Photoshop Express
Another photo application from the Adobe house, but this time a more limited version of the famous Photoshop image editor. It has the most basic functions, such as trimming, applying filters, improving brightness and so on.
Marks the difference with an advanced function that allows modifying certain aspects of specific zones, altering the opacity of a particular sector for example.

Similar to the others in terms of filters, with the addition of having brushes and masks and also the same application works as a social network, where users share the photos they take so that other users see their creations. You can make some modifications in the very cool photos.
It is one of the most used apps in this year, I personally like it a lot and I use it a lot to edit photos.
Very good application if you want to enter a small community of amateur and professional photographers.

Afterlight is one of the best photo editors, a great application for the Android operating system, although it also has an iOS version, which stands out for its simplicity of use.

Vignette unlike other applications to edit photos, allows you to take photos directly and then edit them.
An ideal app for when we want to take a quick photo and apply some small touches to upload them to social networks.
If you’re not very demanding, Vignette has the most editing options you need to give your photos a quick touch.
It has a version for iOS and Android.
Another alternative in terms of applications to edit photos. Like the others, it has the most basic options, adjustment of brightness, contrast and others.
The only disadvantage of this application is that its interface is a little classic and to perform several actions you have to move from one side to another, but outside of that, it is a good alternative for a quick retouch with a filter.

10. Photo Editor Pro
It is a photo editing app of the most complete , has many interesting filters, some basic and others that will allow you to make a more advanced treatment of your photos, obtaining semi-professional results, which is quite good considering that it is from a simple application for mobile phones.
