I'd go with Snapseed. This is the best editing app that will give you DSLR kinda results. I use it to edit product pictures of my Shopify store.

I don't edit on my phone beyond leveling the horizon and possibly cropping and I can do that in Google Photos. I used Snapseed on my chromebook.

Re: Or just upload and edit with GIMP

You're right. But based on my personal experience, I've seen a very positive change. Many photo editing applications are introducing such features that not only sharpen the image but also give a  vibe as if they are taken with a very good camera. Lately, Snapspeed has impressed me the most.

Could you please post examples, before and after?

Google Photos is good for editing and the option to create photo albums in the app is a killer feature which I use all the time.

Just about mostly Snapseed, but also Lightroom.  Lightroom is pretty insane on a Tensor powered phone, breezing through sky selects about as fast as my M1 Pro Mac.  For raw photos from a big camera (and the occasional JPEG or raw from the phone), Lightroom is my go-to.

It's Snapseed for me... It seems real intuitive to use... After reading this thread I didn't know it did raw files, but will give it a go later... I'm learning to use the layer edits and making composite photos...

I used LR for years on the computer, but with traveling and rapidly posting on Instagram, I hardly ever go to the computer any more.

Going to start trying some basic printing to about 16x20-ish prints for framing pictures for around the house, using a full size JPEG edited with Snapseed

On smartphone screen even the worst images looks great, so editing with smartphone is waste of time. You can do it wright only with big monitor.

Depends. On how big your smartphone is, what resolution it is, how good your eyesight is!

Also, you can zoom in...

Snapseed for simplicity.  I need to experience some other apps though.  It has been some time since I tried something else.
