Photoshop Express: Photo Editorfor iOS



Quick and easy changes to your photos

Editing photos on your Apple device can be a hard task. Sometimes the applications available offer too few features, or you need multiple to do a basic edit. Photoshop for IOS helps fix that issue.

Edit pictures the right way

Editing and fixing photos on your mobile device is made simple with this app from Adobe.

Photoshop is a popular photo editing program for the computer. Often this software by Adobe is used for professional photo edits. While the mobile version is not as powerful as the desktop version of Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Express: Photo Editor for iPhone still finds a way to stand out. 

Despite the lack of a mouse when retouching pictures, the editing features available are still straightforward. There are the standard cropping and resizing tools. You can also alter various aspects of your photos, such as the contrast, clarity, shadows, temperature, and more. Sadly, these are all the tools you’ll find on almost any other photo editor. Fortunately, there are plenty of filters for you to apply to pictures. The filters are similar to the ones found on Instagram, changing the color spectrum used in photos.

When you’re finished editing pictures, you can upload them to the Photoshop website quickly and easily. The speed for uploading is also optimal, saving you time during the process.

There is extra work to be done, however, as the software saves edited pictures to its folder instead of the source folder where the picture is from. This makes managing photo albums a pain, especially when you’re editing a large number of pictures.

Where can you run this program?

Photoshop is available for Android and IOS devices, but also has applications available for desktops running Windows 7 and up, and Mac OSX 10.12 or newer.

Is there a better alternative?

No. While it isn’t as good as its desktop counterpart, it is still one of the best photo editors available for the IOS platform. However, there are alternatives such as Pixlr that offer a handful of photo editing tools.

Our take

Adobe Photoshop for IOS is a great option when you’re looking to get a photo editing tool on your mobile device. It’s simple, easy-to-use, and has just enough features to keep you busy for quite some time.

Should you download it?

Yes. If you need a simple editing tool to fix up an album or just a few photos, this is a good choice.
