Smartphone editing

Background

These days you might want to add images to email, Twitter, website posts, and a variety of other places, all from the convenience of your smartphone.

There are many ways you can work with images using your phone. You can use any combination of free or paid apps to get the job done. Depending on what phone you use, be it a Samsung, Sony, or Nexus, the specific apps and how to go about it may differ.

You can use apps that are preloaded on your phone, or you can go to an appstore like Google Play to download and install specific programs. You’ll also find a variety of tips available if you search the web. There is no one way to go about the process.

Toolkit — Apps to Easily Copy, Edit, and Share Images 

This method involves building yourself a toolkit of apps that you can use over and over again when you need to manipulate images. Each app is simple to use, and they are all free apps, available from Google Play. If you prefer, you can move all the apps together into one icon on one of your phone’s menus (and give it any name you like) for easy access.

There are many other apps you could choose, but these do the job well.


X-Plore File Manager

Android - X-Plore File Manager

  • Copy images directly from the phone’s screen by pressing on the image, then selecting “Save as Image” option, the image will be saved in X-Plore’s Downloads folder.
  • Open X-Plore, go to Downloads folder, Rename image as desired.
  • Select Share To, and select Google Photos.

Google Photos

  • Open Photos, select specific image and edit as desired: crop, change lighting, etc.
  • Open email app, Twitter, website, etc., and insert image.

  • Copy the screenshot from X-Plore’s Pictures/Screenshots folder to Google Photos and crop, etc., as desired.
  • If your phone has Android 6 you can do screenshots directly using Google Now On Tap.
    – Turn this feature on by long-pressing the Home button.
    – Then long-press Home on any screen to take a screenshot.
    – Save the image to wherever you choose, if you choose Google Photos, you can easily crop it.

The File Converter

Android - The File Cobnverter

  • Sometimes it’s handy to be able to convert an image from one format type to another, for example, from BMP to JPG, or PNG.
  • The File Converter has many options, including BMP, JPG, PNG, EPS, GIF, HDR, EXR, SVG, TGA, TIFF, WBMP, or WEBP.
  • You can also convert non-image formats including PDF, DOC, TXT, ODT, or HTML.

File Manager
