Top 8 | Best Photo Editing Apps for iPad

It used to be that editing photos was a rather arduous process, reserved only for those with the relevant skill level and a computer processor powerful enough to run something like Adobe Photoshop. Thankfully, that is no longer the case: these days, most people don’t bother taking a camera on holiday with them and will instead simply stick with their mobile or tablet. The camera on the latest iPhone is now so good that it’s better than most digital cameras, and the range of photo editing apps that are currently available from the app store mean that you can snap photos at will and then edit them on the go, ready to be shared with friends and family on social media. These best photo editing apps for iPad tend to range in type, from those that are quick and simple, offering the average user basic options such as the ability to resize, crop and alter contrast and brightness. There are however many more comprehensive apps out there, besides the best iPad photo editor. Let’s see a few of them below!

8. Faded ($0.99)

Best Photo Editing Apps for iPad: Faded

Let’s start with Faded, which is one of the best reviewed photo editing apps out ther for the iPad and it’s easy to see why. The app brings together professional level features and functionality in what is quite a simple package. There are a variety of different tools to use, as well as filters and overlays that are there to help you edit your snaps into masterpieces. I also love the adjustment history feature, which makes it easier than other apps do when it comes to reverting to previous changes. – Download from iTunes

7. Autodesk Pixlr (Free)

Pixlr by Autodesk may seem on the surface as another of those auto photo editing apps that are really built for speed and quick editing rather than the more in depth stuff. On the contrary, the app is actually very in depth and is loaded with different features that are designed to help you personalize and customize your photos and alter them in just about any way you see fit – just as you would with powerful desktop software such as Photoshop. The app also seems to be designed with the iPad in mind, or at least has been updated in a way that very carefully plays to this strength of a larger screen size and uses every pixel of this larger real estate accordingly. – Download from iTunes

6. Snapseed (Free)

Most of those that read the site on a regular basis will know by now that I’m a real sucker for a well designed interface, and Snapseed certainly doesn’t disappoint in this regard. To sum up Snapseed, it’s a useful photo editing app that presents a fairly simple package but then fills this with powerful tools. You basically take a photo from you camera roll and then tap on the plus sign to add a different layer of editing to this particular snap, scrolling up and down to find different presets and then alatering the intensity by scrolling left and right. It’s also among the only photo editing apps currently available for the iPad that actually allow you to save over the original photo rather than duplicating each time you make an edit, though it does allow you to easily rever to the original image should you wish to. – Download from iTunes

5. Afterlight ($0.99)


Afterlight, formerly known as Afterglow, is still right up there when it comes to the best iPad photo editor apps: easy editing and powerful photo manipulation functionality, at your fingertips. It is also among the best apps out there for mobiles and tablets when it comes to filters, offerent an array or even a plethora of different options – perfect for the picky photographer! I guess the best thing about Afterlight besides these filters and its ease of use, is how it has refined the photo editing process to make it a whole lot quicker and hassle free. This is of course great for those who don’t have much time or would rather not spend much time on editing photos, but simply want to snap away and apply filters before uploading to social media.  – Download from iTunes
