iPHOTO $5 | iOS
Apple’s flagship photo editing suite, iPhoto is available for iPads and iPhones – and is even easier to use than its Mac counterpart. Crop, fix blemishes and adjust contrast, saturation, brightness and sharpness by swiping and tapping. Then, send your pictures to Facebook or Flickr or print directly from your device.
Adobe Photoshop Touch $10 | Android, iOS
Designed for tablets, the world’s most popular image editing program is ideal for a touchscreen and even easier to use than the desktop version. Features such as layers, selection tools and filters are here; fun stuff such as scribbling on an area of the image to extract are crazy clever.
Thumba Photo Editor $1 | iOS, Windows Phone
Thumba has one of the richest feature sets of any editing app including basics such as cropping, contrast, resizing and rotating. It also carries loads of effect presets seen in apps such as Instagram: lomography, vignette, tilt shift and more. Of course, you can also share your masterpieces on Facebook, Twitter and Flickr.
