Snapseed is packed full of interesting effects and adjustment options, and while its interface may need some time to get used to, it’s definitely worth the patience. This app is one of the most powerful tools for a creative photographer, and as long as you have a clear idea of what you’re trying to do with your pictures, the tools for that are somewhere in Snapseed’s menus. Keep in mind that you may need a little practice to fully make use of all features available in Snapseed, especially the more complex ones, and it’s not an app that you can just pick up and start using right away. As we said earlier though, your patience will definitely be rewarded if you’re after a tool that will give you every feature you could possibly need. (download here)

The biggest name in the world of photo editing is also available on mobile – and it’s exactly as powerful as you’d expect if you’re familiar with the desktop version.
