Two Free Photo Editing Apps for School

22 Mar

Free Photo Editing Apps

Lots of our students want to create presentations and projects, or just fun things with their iPads, iPhones, or iPods while in class.  Sometimes they need a little help with this, especially if they need to touchup, crop, or edit photos they’ve taken in anyway.  Today, two free apps that can let them do just that!

Photo Editor by Aviary

This app is a very simple one for editing photos quickly.  Aviary has a very similar interface and feels very much like Instagram.  Students can choose from an Enhance menu where they can adjust the color and lighting in the photo, Effects where they can choose different tones and blurs, frames, stickers, and text.  Aviary also supports basic photo editing like red-eye reduction, whitening, blemish removal, brightness, saturation, and sharpness adjustments, as well as simple cropping.  Aviary is available for both the iPhone and iPad.

Adobe Photoshop Express

Similar to the full version, Adobe Photoshop Express offers hundreds of photo enhancement, effects, and adjustments options for students.  From a simple auto adjustment by clicking on a want icon to choosing from the hundreds of effects and borders Photoshop Express offers a great deal of choice in adjusting photos.  Also included are the basic editing tools, including brightness and contrast, hue and saturation, tint, sharpening tools, noise reduction, and red-eye reduction.  The interface is not as graphically appealing as some other editors, as Photoshop Express chooses to allow the photograph to maximize the real estate on the screen, rather than its menus.  Photoshop Express is available for both iPhone and iPad.
