December 23, 2013, 12:33 PM — There's a world of great photo apps for iOS and Android beyond Instagram and SnapChat. Here are ten of the best -- and every one of them is free.
This is a great replacement for Android's gallery app. You can password-protect individual photos, crop, size, and resize photos from right inside the app, perform nifty sorting tricks, and more. And it's optimized for HD tablets as well.
If you're a photo hound and have plenty of photos on your Android phone or tablet, this is one to consider. It has stellar tagging features, which means you'll be able to do quick searches and sorts to find the picture you want fast.
Here's a great, playful Android and iOS photo editor that goes well beyond removing red-eye, whitening teeth, and doing the usual photo fixes. It has more than 600 photo effects and overlays, plenty of color tools, and lets you share photos via Facebook.
Adobe, the maker of Photoshop, has plenty of experience with photo editors, and this is a very useful one. There are free versions for both Android and iOS. Crop, rotate, edit the color, choose from a variety of effects, and more.
This iOS app lets you create hand-drawn portraits by drawing over photos. Use your own photos or those uploaded by the Sktchy community, then share them with others.
This iOS app does exactly what it sounds like it should do: Lets you put customized frames around your photos. You've got 70 frames to choose from, and you can pick a variety of effects and textures for each, such as grunge, retro, cinematic, and more.
