The boom in high quality camera’s & mobile phone photography has been remarkable than ever. Around the globe, people shoot & upload tons of photographs from their mobile devices. Most like to quickly edit the photos on the device itself before showcasing them over their online portals. However, when it comes to photo-editing apps there are tons of them & choosing the best one can become a challenge. I’ve tried several of them in past but nothing has come close to the user experience & the results provided by Aviary Photo Editor.
Aviary Photo Editor is a free download from Google Play store & comes without any ads. To begin with, it has a nice easy to navigate interface which is done beautifully. There is no clutter & the transitions across various screens are buttery smooth. There are even smooth old radio style scroll wheels which give the interface a cool look. As usual, there are quick fixes(filters) which we all have come accustomed to from the onset of Instagram. But there is more to Aviary, one can write text over an image, put stickers, frames etc. The default installation comes with only a handful of these but one can download as per his liking from the Google Play store.
If you’re the one who likes to take control of every aspect of image-editing, then Aviary will surprise you with almost all essential features like cropping, sharpness, contrast, warmth, focus, colour splash, blur, straighten, meme & much more which is plenty for one’s need. There is also a one touch fix, high definition & illuminate effect which work remarkably well. I’m particularly delighted with the High Definition effect which sort of works like clarity & pumps up the contrast a bit which allows one to see even the minutest details captured. For the average camera on my Motorola Defy, this effect has turned many dull photos into one I never thought. I highly recommend you to play with these manual controls instead of presets which will give you total control over the editing process.
Every feature of Aviary screams quality. The selection of tools, the filters, the stickers are all high definition & carefully selected by the team. This has reduced the clutter of filters(often useless) which we have often seen in other applications. The extra filters, frame packs available on Play Store are also bundled with quality in mind as most have only half a dozen filters in a single pack. What’s more, Aviary does not resize the photos as it saves them after editing. This is a huge bonus. To sum up, for anyone who is looking for a easy to use quality photo editor on Android(or even iOS), look no further than Aviary. Actually this is the only photo editor you’ll ever need. I’ve stopped using others since I’ve installed Aviary. No doubt, the team proudly proclaims “The World’s Best Photo Editor”. Accolades to the Aviary team. 🙂
