Editing on the go isn’t just for Instagram lovers anymore, thanks to expert editing apps even the most experienced photographers are often opting to edit on mobile. You can achieve effects similar to traditional desktop softwares, correct any issues, and even fix the lighting, all on your mobile phone. And, now that professional editing equipment is available to the common man (the Lightroom mobile app is free) editing your photos to reflect a personal style has become the norm.
However, with professional quality equipment, comes a certain amount of required technical expertise. That is, you need to know how to use it.
