When it comes to photo editing apps for smartphones, the competition is fiery hot. There are too many apps to name that make an impression in this category but only the very best are actually top rated on the app stores. LightX combines basic editing with modern Photoshop-like techniques to produce an app that functions in diverse ways. The app, although free to download from iTunes and the Google Play Store, offers a bunch of in-app purchases that further the photo editing experience for users on this app.
LightX does everything a good photo editing app is supposed to do. From making picture collages, adding frames to your photos to professional masking and background changing tool – LightX by Andor Communications is definitely at the top of its game.
The app design is pretty simple and there isn’t a lot going on in it. It’s not particularly beautiful but it gets the job done. Plus, the user interface is pretty friendly and even beginners won’t find much difficulty moving about this photo editing app.
What makes LightX so wholesome is the variety of features it offers. Starting off with basic cutting and cropping tools for your photos, this app lets users crop, rotate, make collages and add photo frames to their photos. These photos can either be captured directly through the app’s built-in camera function or imported from your phone gallery making LightX a pretty flexible application.
You can also make use of the professional Lasso tool that experts at Adobe Photoshop will be familiar with. This tool lets you mask and cut out parts of the photo and change the rest of the background to your liking. You can also superimpose the cutout you’ve made on to any other background to create fresh content.
Apart from the cutting and editing tools, we can’t forget to mention the gorgeous filter effects and color splash effects LightX offers. Strikingly similar to Pixlr, this app lets you add in any color to your photo to give it a certain tint. You can also choose an effect for your photos from the wide library of effects available on the app. It must be remembered though that not every effect is available to use for free and you might have to use actual money to purchase the good photo filters.
On LightX you can also merge two different photos to create a new artistic one. This can be done by using the multiple blending tools and toggling with the double exposure effect. Users can also change the tone and contrast of their pictures by adjusting the color curves, levels, brightness and contrast, color balance, hues and warmth of their photos.
There’s a separate photo editing area for all selfie lovers as well. LightX offers professional portrait editing of all the portrait pictures or selfies you take. There’s an automatic and manual mode to adjust the sharpness of the image. There’s also a range of separate selfie filters designated only for this mode that you can add to your selfies for that extra pop of color. You can also make use of professional face editing tools like whitening teeth, removing spots, wrinkles and red eye, changing the hair or eye color and even blurring the background for a more professional effect.
LightX also has support for adding text, cartoons, photo frames, shape manipulation and a lot more making it an all-in-one photo editing application for sure. There have been slight issues with the app freezing and lagging at times but they are constantly fixed with new app updates.
