7 Top photo editing tools for your camera phone

7 Top photo editing tools for your camera phone | Image Effects, Filters, Masks and Other Image Processing Methods | Scoop.it

The whole world suddenly went mad for them, shelling out hundreds of pounds for a phone that could take maybe six images of maybe 100 pixels each. Fast forward a decade or so though, and we’re not so easily impressed. With just about every smartphone now capable of taking thousands of pictures and recording reams of video, we’ve gone from marvelling at the technology to being blasé about it. It’s no longer enough to simply take pictures; we have to make them perfect too."

Lindsey Davis's insight:

Mobile Commerce News ranks their top five photo editing apps, and coming in at number one is Adobe Photoshop Touch. It's expensive because it's the best, but with six other options you're bound to find at least one new great app you'll love.
