A couple weeks ago I was driving down the road, stopped at a four way, and took off when it was my turn to go. My phone was in my front pocket and as soon as I hit the gas it flew out with such force that it broke my screen. What does this have to do with editing photos? Well, with my old phone, I use to have great editing tools that just came with the phone. These editing tools were the same Nik plugins I use in Photoshop. So when I had to get a new phone, those same editing tools were gone. So, I searched out new editing tools in Google playbook. What I found was "snapseed". Google had made an app with those same editing features plus a lot more. I am back in business.
This is such a great tool for when you're on the go, or if you don't have a need for Photoshop. I can even wirelessly transfer my photos from my Sony camera to my phone for editing. This photo example below was shot with a cell phone camera and edited with "snapseed" to create a kind of old African safari postcard. You can download this great app for free. So get it, edit, and have fun with your photos.
Saving a memory captured with a bad exposure: When you're a parent with kids in sports, capturing those moments can be difficult. Most games are played in the middle of the day, and of course, that is the worst time of day to snap photos. There just isn't much you can do but capture the moment. A bad photo is still better than no photo. So what can you do? If you don't want to do it yourself you can contact me or you can try an online editor like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XB553S2OZnQ

Photo Examples Below:
Above is the original photo. The camera clearly exposed for the bright background, while it looks like there is some sun flare hitting the front of the lens creating a ghost affect. It's difficult to create light where there is none. Below, I edited with Photoshop giving it a bronze warming look to help with the gray skin tones.
