Top 3 Android image editing apps


Selfies are a thing now and people are instagraming almost everything.While Instagram offers cool effects which you can use,you cannot save it unless you post it.

There are a lot of image editing apps in Android and we are going to see the one which I consider the Top 3.All these apps are free to download and have several in-app purchases.It means you can use all their basic feautures and you can pay and get their special features too.


  1. Photo Editor by Aviary
  2. PicsArt Photo Studio
  3. Pho.to Lab - fun photo editor

1. Photo Editor by Aviary







Aviary has a lot of cool image effects which I love.These effects create various dramatic images.









This is a sample of the original image.


 
After applying a few effects ,this is what it looks like.Pretty cool right.
 



It has a lot of enhancement options like hi-def,color fix,brightness,contrast.But unlike common image editing app,aviary has super cool options like removing red eye ,whiten and blemish etc.

Back to Basics : Photoshop Actions - How to record an action in Photoshop CC

Action is an amazing feature of Photoshop.An action is a recorded collection of steps which can be applied to an image.Actions in Photoshop come in handy when you want to apply the same set of steps on a large number of files.

For example , I want to reduce the size of an image to 500px X 500px.I can manually perform every step on an image.Not a problem.I can do it for 5,10 or 20 images.What if I have to deal with 100 or 1000 images.It might take hours or days to complete this job.This is when Photoshop Actions come to the rescue.

To execute action :
 
Step 1 :Recording an Action

Step 2 :Performing the action

Recording an Action:

To record an action, Go to Windows - Actions (or) just click F9 to open the actions window.
  

Open the image on which you want to perform the action.
