The Best Mobile Editing Apps

I receive a lot of questions about mobile applications for editing photos. Let me start by saying that I rarely use them. This is mainly because I prefer to work on my computer, with a large monitor and a program that has all the features available.

To me, working on a computer is completely different than working on a phone. I only use mobile applications occasionally, like when I take a photo with my phone and want to post it on Instagram or Facebook Stories. Or if I want to send it to friends. I use them as a substitute for postcards.

Nevertheless, I know of a few applications, and I did some quick research before writing this. I was curious about what other users thought of these applications.

Let’s get into the article.

Unleash Your Inner Photographer: The Best Mobile Editing Apps

Adobe Lightroom

Adobe Lightroom is one of the best applications for editing photos. I use it on my computer, and it’s therefore the closest to me when it comes to using it on my phone. It has a huge range of editing functions that give you full control over your images. It also offers options for saving and sharing your photos in the cloud.


VSCO is a popular application for editing photos. I don’t use it myself, but I’ll give it a try shortly. Maybe I’ll write a short review. VSCO allows you to create beautiful filters, adjust brightness, contrast, and color, and apply other effects. In addition, you can also share your artistic photos with the world using the app.


Snapseed is a simple and intuitive application for editing photos that allows you to edit images at a professional level. It offers a wide range of editing tools, including cropping and rotation, as well as more advanced tools like selective adjustment and perspective correction. This is another application I don’t use. I’m an iPhone fanboy, so…


Canva is a photo editing application that focuses mainly on design and graphic design. Although I don’t use it on my phone, I have tried it a few times on my computer. The application allows for editing photos with filters, adjusting lighting and color, and adding text, graphics, and other elements. It also offers numerous templates and design ideas that can help create creative photos. It is free to download and use, but some features require a subscription.

Final Thoughts

Those are my top picks for mobile photo editing apps, but I’m always on the lookout for new ones to try out. If any of you shutterbugs have any suggestions, hit me up in the comments or on Twitter at @JernejLetica.

And speaking of new pics, have any of you shutterbugs been out and about capturing some new shots? Landscape, cityscape, graffiti, street, sport, or wildlife? Do share, because Pics or it didn’t happen.

Thank you!
