After each new generation of phones, their cameras take better pictures, but even with the best camera, it is always recommended to edit the photo to improve and enhance the results . And on Android there are very good photo editors .
One favorite application for many users is Snapseed , the Google application offers under a very easy-to-use interface powerful tools for making very fast edits. But the application is not so complete, or perhaps it is not what you need. So, we review below, your best alternatives to replace or complement the popular Google photo editor.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC 

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC offers a powerful and simple editing application that integrates a professional photo camera to capture photos in RAW. The Lightroom application does not have filters, only advanced tools more advanced than those of Snapseed to correct and adjust the tones to change the color, exposure, saturation, tone and contrast. Although, only the most advanced users here will know how to use this editor.

The download of Lightroom CC is free, but if we pay 4.99 euros per month we can save and organize our photos in the Adobe Creative cloud, use its powerful search engine and automatic tags, share our photos in a web gallery, edit photos in RAW of any camera connected to the USB OTG of the mobile, apply selective adjustments and correct the perspective. These last two options are free in Snapseed.
