7 Free Photo Editing Apps for IOS and Android_ Retouching Blog.png


Photo editing apps have had a big impact on the mobile world. Who doesn't love all-in-one apps that allow photographers to make quick and professional looking changes to their images while they are on the go. The only frustration is that all apps may not be available for both IOS or Android. This can be a little bothersome especially if you have both Android and IOS devices, but you want to stick to the same apps between the two. Since I use an iPhone, but an Android tablet; I decided to share this list of excellent photo enhancement apps that are available for both platforms.
