Photo retouching apps become more and more advanced and today I’ll talk about a free retouching app for android and iPhones. Learn how to retouch portraits on your mobile phone with this free app.The app I’m talking about is called Airbrush and it’s available for Android and IOS so you can download it for free from Google Play and Apple Store. This application is specially designed for skin retouching and it has some advanced tools.
If you want to add stickers, emoji, text, frames or other fancy things this is not the app for you. It only allows to enhance your selfies or portraits and apply filters. You can use your camera to take a selfie and edit it straight away or browse for an image from your gallery.
I used this app to retouch a photo I took on a recent session I made with Sandra and this is the result I got.
The interface of the app is very simple and intuitive and it’s translated in several languages. There are no confusing options which makes the app extremely easy and quick to work with. All available tools are located on a scrolling bar at the bottom of the screen and once you select a tool, its options appear on the same bar.
Tools that require precision such as the Stains Tool, come with a magnifying glass that shows exactly what part of the image you’re working on which is very handy. You can zoom in to your image so you can work more comfortably if you need to fix a more sensitive or small area of your photo.
The tools it comes with have limited parameters to adjust, but they are just enough to work with your photo, it’s not crowded with useless options.
This retouching app has a very decent amount of filters including several black and white filters. None of them has parameters other than adjusting the intensity of the filter but you can apply several filters to achieve nice photo effects.
Photo retouching tools
Retouching portraits on a mobile device can be a tricky thing unless the app is very well built and comfortable to work with. This one has the following tools:
- Blemish and Pimple Remover
- Whiten Teeth and Brighten Eyes
- Slim, Reshape and Lengthen
- Skin tone changer
- Vignette, cropping and blurring tools
This app is almost like having a little Photoshop in your pocket. You have the Power of the Liquify Tool and the effectiveness of the Spot Healing Brush tool. You cannot make color changes to your image or change the temperature but if you’re going to share your image to Instagram you can do that with instagram’s editing tools.
