Best photo editing apps in 2021

10. Afterlight (Android, iOS)

Afterlight 2 is designed for those who want to spend time editing individual photos. The tools for color, exposure, composition and structure are rather comprehensive, including layers, curves, and selective hue. The stickers are simple but varied, and text includes numerous fonts; both can be edited for color, opacity, placement, size and rotation. In addition to multiple levels of undo and redo, you can use the history screen to rollback your image to a specific stage. Or, you can use the layers screen to select, edit or delete a particular edit.

The interface is generally easy to use, after an initial confusion about a couple of non-standard icons on the home page. Unfortunately, a significant number of the tools and options, not to mention more than 130 filters, are available only if you buy a membership for $2.99/month, $17.99/year or $35.99/lifetime. Also, the Android version isn’t as advanced as the iOS version.
