Photo Editor: Best PicsArt Alternative for Android

If you have been looking for the best PicsArt alternative for your Android device, you have come to the right place. After trying many photo editor apps on Android, we have finally found the best alternative for PicsArt photo editor.

The best PicsArt alternative goes by the moniker Photo Editor on Google Play Store. Wait, what? Yes, you read that right. The app is known as Photo Editor by Dev.macgyver. We just wish the developer were a little bit creative. Anyway, the Photo Editor app is available free on the Google Play Store and it just weighs 3MB. Yes, only 3MB. Woah!!!

While trying other photo editor apps, I always found something missing. Either the clone feature wasn’t there or it didn’t allow adding images but our latest discovery, Photo Editor (how I wish the developer gives the app a new name) does every damn thing.

It’s a powerful app with a user-friendly interface. However, the app requires a little bit of learning curve. It will take some time to understand all the functions but trust me, the time spend on learning is worth it, as you will uncover new features every other day.

If you tap the New button, the app offers multiple options such as image size where you can enter any size that you like or choose from the predefined sets. Plus, you can also change metrics such as px, in, mm, cm and m. The app also lets you change the DPI of your image. Further, on the same screen itself, you can rename the file. Moreover, the app offers cool undo options. It even lets you edit pixels.
