The Samsung Galaxy S III is supposed to ship bundled with a default photo editor app called Photo Editor but for reason it’s omitted from shipments bound for Brunei and some parts of the world. I’ve had the phone for over a month and since then trialed about half a dozen similar free apps on Google Play. Among those I consider worth keeping are AfterFocus and Aviary Photo Editor while most others are just too Instagram-ish for my liking. While I do use Instagram occasionally I don’t use any of its filters. The photo editing tools I require are what every seasoned photographer know as basic exposure control tools and I’m glad I found Samsung’s own photo editing app to fulfill my needs.
Best part is its Gallery integration for easy and convenient editing.
Note: You may have noticed much to my own dismay that the Edit shortcut has disappeared after updating to Android 4.x. Good news is the photo editor still works as a standalone app :wink:

The beauty of the Android operating system is you can opt to download OTA or on a Windows PC then drag the file over to the external micro SD card. Touch to install and life’s good. Once you’re done editing, Save the image and you’ll get a menu that lets you do a number of things including social media sharing.
