You can also use various tools to work on the photo exposition, the color, and many other parameters.Phone mockup of the VSCO app being used

A professional photo retouching software on your smartphone :

                                                                                                                                                               How could we not mention Adobe when we talk about photo editing?    

This was developed initially as a software for photographers working on a computer, but then Photoshop developed this “express” version for smartphone.

It offers fewer possibilities than the PC or Mac versions, but still offers a large option panel. You’ll have the chance to change the luminosity, add filters, or to create your own, to correct the colors, etc.

All this for free!      

However, the app is a bit difficult to use. If you already know the basics of photo retouching and you enjoy working on different parameters, this app will just be perfect for you!
