There is a common saying among photographers and photography enthusiasts that “the best camera in the world is the one you have at that moment”. The appearance of camera phones and, above all, the increase in the quality of the cameras’ sensors, make our phone “the best camera” since it is the one we almost always carry with us. In addition, smartphones add a lot of freedom and spontaneity when taking photos.
The less you have to edit, the better
Miracles do not exist and, if the photo from which we start has very poor quality, we will not achieve much when editing it, even if we use professional editing software. The best thing for the result to be good is that we have to edit as little as possible.
Choose the appropriate app
Apps to edit photos on Android there are many, many, but not all adapt to everyone or, above all, to any situation. As we saw in our analysis of the most complete photo editors, there are apps that are more focused on simple retouching for the average user and more advanced or specific ones.
Retouchme app is one of the most used options in the panorama. The first one stands out for its minimalist interface and its collection of filters, which it combines with a good collection of editing tools, while the second offers a huge range of options, some very specific like the white balance adjustment.
If what you are looking for is an app that allows you to eliminate spots or make specific retouching, visit retouchme.com/ and download the retouchme app. In short, before starting the retouching, think about what functions you need and choose the best app to achieve the result you are looking for.
Adjust the frame
Getting the perfect frame to the first is not always easy, especially when it comes to geometric elements or symmetries. It can happen that when shooting the photo comes out crooked or that we only want to frame a detail but we cannot get as close as we would like. In all these situations, editing apps are the solution.
There will be times when the camera hits the exhibition and you do not have to adjust anything, but the truth is that most times the exhibition can be retouched to achieve a more striking effect. Of course, you have to be careful that there are not many burned areas or totally black shadows, unless, of course, you are looking for just that effect.
Retouching the colour
Unless you delete it in the edition, colour is an element present in all our photographs and, in the same way as the exhibition, the usual thing is that you have to adjust it even slightly to get the best result.
A quite usual situation is that we find ourselves with a dominant colour.The tool like White Balance help eliminate this type of effects and make the tones more faithful. There are also apps that offer the Hue or Warmth function, with which it is possible to eliminate these dominant ones.
