Here we found another fancy app to shoot and edit fanciful pictures. If you'll be using tools like S Photo Editor, Photoshop geeks are no longer needed to achieve a decent effect on the photos you want posted on social media.
With S Photo Editor, you can snap and edit your photos in various ways. The main screen has sections for camera, editing, and downloading new effects.
To start capturing you can either go to Camera (as a standard choice) or to PIP (to start as picture in picture). You can capture in three ways. You an either take photos, which we will get to in a minute, capture video, or capture "dynamic" video. Dynamic means that it captures a short video which can be then converted into a GIF. Video can also be shot as part of a collage. Since collages often require cropping, this feature does away with any post filming re-adjusting.
Pictures can be edited afterwards. Developers were kind enough to let users adjust the contrast, saturation and brightness, as well as sharpness, color temperature and tone. You can also apply ready made filters and add in doodles, text and stickers. Video cannot be edited though.
Filters can also be set live before taking the actual picture. There are a few to chose from the get-go, but there are also many filters and effects that can be downloaded from the "Effects" section, provided you are connected to the net and also be ready to spend some credit, as not every filter is free.
S Photo Editor also acts as a picture album. In the Gallery section, you can explore pictures and video that you've taken using S Photo Editor as well as other media that is present on the device. From there you can add any picture or video to the Private Album. Media that is in the Private Album is not view-able from anywhere else and can only be accessed from S Photo Editor via a four digit code.

I found S Photo Editor to be a well rounded app. I liked that it gives enough freedom to make manual adjustments, although the filters and effects are also quite good. The private album might also be of interest to some.
