Adobe Photoshop Express has many advanced editing tools and filters built into its photo editing app. Photoshop Express has control tools like crop, straighten, rotate, flip, color, red eye removal, hue, brightness and white balance. And Photoshop Express also has filters like Vibrant, Superpunch and Glow. Plus you can add borders and frames to the photos.

And there is a Photoshop Mix feature that allows you to combine multiple photos into one single image. Raw photos are supported so you can import and edit photos in raw formats.
FaceTune / Lightricks Ltd.
FaceTune is definitely a must-have photo editing app. FaceTune was designed to help you improve selfies and portraits. I definitely could have used this app when I was in high school for my yearbook and prom photos.
FaceTune can widen smiles and brighten teeth. It can also be used to remove pimples and blemishes and brighten dark circles under the eyes. Plus it can also remove red and white eye effects. Replacing grey hairs with a different color and filling in bald patches is a cinch with this app. Use FaceTune to refine jawlines, reshape the nose and add color to your lips and eyes.
Whether you’ll be using portraits for your professional profile or simply your selfie sharing online with friends, in a world constantly becoming more visual, putting your best face forward has never been more important!

PicsArt is is also a go-to for making awesome double exposure photo edits. you can make double exposures using layers with adjustable transparency.

The Aviary is a powerful photo editor app that has filters, stickers, frames and several other editing tools. Over 1,500 of the Aviary effects are free. Like FaceTune, Aviary makes it easy to erase blemishes and whiten teeth. What I like about Photo Editor by Aviary is that it is integrated with Behance, an online portfolio service that supports creative photography professionals.
