Re: Best photo editor to use with a Nexus 7?

I don't think you have to license Photoshop Touch on the Android device. I use it for most of my editing.

Snapseed maybe be a competent app, but I prefer the interface and the layering in PS Touch. Snapseed--like so many other Google-owned apps--always comes across like either a display at Toys-R-Us or a bill board at Times Square, which just bugs me.

Along with PS Touch, I use the following apps to round out my image viewing/editing on my tablet:

  • Photo Editor to batch resize my image files, since the JPEGs from my camera are way too big for what I need for editing on my Nexus 7.
  • x-plore file manager, to create folders, move and copy files on my tablet
  • Nexus Media Importer for copying image files onto my device;
  • QuickPic photo viewer/gallery which I like much better than the generic Gallery app on my tablet. One cool feature is it lets you rotate images from within app while viewing them.

I generally like PS Touch, but wish it had a view other features and some interface changes. I keep suggesting these on the Adobe website, but I'm thinking they are marketing this app to the general public, not so much to serious photographers, so I don't think they'll ever consider my suggestions. But maybe Adobe will surprise me

Photoshop is horrible, requiring license checks and not always working. Cloud based license checks suck big time, unless you are on WiFi all the time.

Snapseed is good for 90% of the stuff you need,
