Plus, there's a feature to correct skewed perspective in photos as well as an option to reduce unwanted grain in low light images.
Google's Snapseed app also offers plenty of features on a clean interface. You can select a photo and customize it with existing filters or adjust exposure, color, or contrast manually. The app offers 29 comprehensive editing tools, with options for adjusting white balance, lens blur and adding enhancements to select parts of an image. You can also create a QR code to re-apply effects.
PhotoDirector makes another reliable editor, thanks to its ability to adjust the color and tone of images and apply artistic photo effects. The app's inbuilt camera tool can apply adjustable filters in real time and can click images with simple gestures and face detection. Notably, it also has a handy option to remove unwanted objects and people from images in a subtle manner.
This particular app called Airbrush is useful when you are looking to tweak your facial features by a small bit to create that ideal portrait. The app has plenty of features and can wipe out facial flaws like blemishes and pimples. In addition, you can also enlarge your eyes, slim your face, narrow your nose, and brighten your teeth if needed.
Just like Airbrush, Facetune 2 also packs a bunch of tools for retouching your face, fixing what you could see as minor flaws. The app not only helps you adjust eyes, nose, teeth and other facial features but also alters light, shadows, and glare in photos.
