Photoshop is one of the most popular editing programs for PC users and indeed the program is good at photo editing. In regards to mobile editing, the Fotor app is very much like photoshop because it shares similarities with the features and functionaly of photoshop.

This app is not a complete photo editing app but I like the fact that it does offer something great. With a little filters tweak and a few finger swipe here and there you get the same image result as If you were to use photoshop. The app let you delete errant hairs, cover up blemishes, and add a sparkle to your smile. The key different here is you do less work for superb results.
You will find that the program has plenty of filters perfect for any photo environment and there is another cool thing for the ladies. This app offers face makeup thereby making it easy for you to add lipstick. It can alsoinsert new backgrounds, and more.
Keep in mind that Airbrush is not a full-featured photo editor. If you’re on the hunt for a powerful Photoshop alternative, you should look elsewhere.

There are a lot of apps out there offering powerful features but the Pixlr stands out with its two million combinations of stunning filters, effects and overlays.
The app is one of your very best choices to pick from among others, its interface and functionality make it the best alternative to Photoshop on Android.
Aside the infinite no of filters it offers, you also have access to primary editing tools such as cropping and rotating, skin retouching and smootheners and also the indispensable teeth whiteners and red-eye remover.
The app is layered based, meaning you can hide and unhide layers and also merge two layers, just as you would do in photoshop. If you’re coming from Photoshop, you’ll be pleased with the functionality and interface of this application because you will feel at home.
As always the bill comes due, who will offer an app of such great functionalities without room for making income?. A number of users have complained bitterly of the increasing amount of ads in the past few days. So be sure ready to battle with plenty of ads if you’re using the free version.
