Five for Friday: Apps to make your photos beautiful

Without question, documenting our lives from our smartphones has become so commonplace that we forget when we actually had to use film just 20 years ago. Some of you have probably never used a film camera, and are used to endless photos that you never have to delete.

We take pictures of our hikes, cats, dogs, bunnies, babies, flowers, scenery, food, and the list goes on and on. For the photos we choose to share there are tools available to make them even better with simple edits. We have selected five powerful and easy to use photo editing apps you can use on your Android smartphones and tablets.

Without further ado, here’s five Android apps you should consider right now if you like to make your photos look spectacular. We’ll let you know some of the main details as to what you can expect, but trust in knowing they are all excellent.
