    Hi everybody. This is a quite useful review. Good job! You can’t edit all kinds of “bad” photos with one app. Some apps are good to correct light in poorly lit photos, some are great for skin retouching, some have great artistic filters and cool effects just to have fun while editing. But i use none of them if i need a serious photo correction. For serious purposes i would recommend professionals, because you want your picture to look like it has not been corrected at all.


    I am using pitr, one of the best app that I ever used for my phone, thanks for your article and nice to see you

    Ooh, these apps sound super awesome. I had no idea photo editing apps had gotten so powerful!

    My poor husband can’t take a photo to save his life, so what few photos I have of myself are almost all selfies! I’ll have to try out some of these apps! Do you have a favorite from this list?
