Hey guys

I was wondering what the best and most complete picture editing app is.
I've used many different apps like snapseed, Pixlr Express, PicSay, PicsArt, etc...

I'd like the app to have a complete set of features and full resolution editing.
Features like remove red-eye, cropping, rotating, effects, overlays, lighting effects, blur, contrast & brightness controls...

Any suggestions are welcome!
Thanks in advance

With those requests, I'd say your best bet is to just use a PC. Photoshop or GIMP maybe.

Can't say I've ever seen an app for a phone that sophisticated. :/

I guess I'll use Pixlr Express since that has the best collection of features I like in an app
Thanks though!

Pixlr looks good. To bad it doesn't have video editing...

I use VSCO app.
You can try using PhotoShop app not the express but the paid version.

If you actually want to do serious editing and not useless stuff purely for social media then do it properly with Photoshop on a PC, lol.

ive been using picsay pro now for almost 6 years. when they just started up, it wasnt an editor app, it just wrote stuff on your photos. then a year later they merged with another company and became what it is today. its one of my favorite apps as well, gets a huge amount of use

when youre using your mobile constantly, transfering your photos to your desktop to edit them is a huge hastle. some, like me, dont even own a computer. and many of these photo editing apps are as good, or better than photoshop for the desktop.

You can't really say "better", it's just more convenient/preset-automated for basic things I guess personally I don't really like any mobile image editors and if need to touch something up then I'll do it manually in Photoshop because I have more control

For social media most mobile apps are fine and convenient, but I'm not into that.

every single one of my images goes through PicSay Pro. better.. yea, i can say that, and less hassle is part of it. remember, better isnt precise, better is what best for me, since i was posting. really, all yoy have to do is properly learn how to use the specific photo editing app, because if you dont know how to use it, its would suck then. anyways, back to desktop Photoshop.. i bet i can do everything that you can do in your desktop photoshop, but ill do it all on my phone.
