The best apps for upgrading smartphone photos

These apps offer traditional editing tools as well as some fun surprises. 

Adobe Photoshop Express takes Adobe’s traditional editing controls and “makes them easier than ever.” A mere finger swipe will edit levels of saturation, exposure, and contrast. (Android, iPad, or iPhone)

Camera Bag is perfect “if you’re feeling nostalgic.” This app makes your photos look as if they were taken with an old Instamatic or developed in a darkroom. (iPhone or iPad)

Photofunia takes your head-shot photos and allows you to paste them into countless surprising settings. If you’ve ever “wanted to see how your face would look on a giant Times Square billboard” or hanging in an art gallery, this app is for you. (Android only)

Photogene offers “a few surprises” along with the standard editing tools. On an iPad, the app lets you edit specific areas of a photo, so you can tamp down bright spots or brighten dark areas. (iPad or iPhone)
