Screenshots: Five Android apps to enhance your photos

Introduction

If a picture is worth a thousand words, a picture with the right effects is worth a million. And those million words could translate to social media shares... which could turn into business. That’s right: From a standard photo to viral sharing, all thanks to a few photo effects.

But how do you apply those effects? You turn to your Android device and the Google Play Store. There, you’ll find plenty of tools that can give those photos just the right look you need to make your product, company, or service even more likely to go viral.

Be careful, though: This category is a minefield of bad apps that either don’t do what they claim or that are filled with so many ads they make the app useless. To help you winnow out the bad ones, I picked five of my favorites. Let’s dive in and see what apps are the best and what they can do for you.
