    I am a huge photography enthusiast and I take as many pictures of the nature, objects and more as I can. My issue is I suck at editing and I think most of my images look very cold and blend, I would like to be able to make the colours warmer somehow so they pop more. I edit strictly on my L920 with either Fotolabb (Creative Studios), Photo Shader, Thumba Cam or Thumba Photo Editor. Some images below as suggestions.

    Well...If you really want to edit and process your photos I would suggest Lightroom on a PC =/

    Most of the apps won't be as immerse as a program like Lightroom will be

    I realize that, but it's nice to edit on the phone right after you've taken the picture.

    Lightroom seems too advanced for me, I downloaded Snapseed and I really like how simple it is and I understand it fully. I took a picture today and here are the result before and after (in Snapseed)

    Lightroom isn't meant to be used to edit jpg images from a cellphone anyways. So, I wouldn't go that direction. Just curious, if you're a "huge photography enthusiast" why are you relying on a cellphone anyways? I would only use a cellphone in a pinch. BTW, nice images, you have a good eye (which is 70% of a good image).

    Personally, I would never use a cellphone app to edit images, so, I couldn't help you there. A simple PC program that I've used since 2000 is ACDSee. Its a multi purpose, inexpensive, software. It does have photo editing features (that I rarely use) that should do all the basics. If you wanted your images to "pop" making them warmer wouldn't do that (normally, adding a yellow tint = warmer image). Making them "pop" normally means a correct exporsure and over doing contrast. (there are other methods as well, but thats the easiest and most common).

    Finally, this is 2013 and unfortunately, editing is a large part of photography these days. I would suggest that if you suck at it, its something you are going to want to learn. ACDSee is a good start. I love that software. (PM me if you end up getting it and have questions).

    Hi, thanks for the nice reply. Maybe I refrased myself wrong, but I do enjoy photography alot and just lately I have been starting taking pictures myself. I discovered Snapseed from youtube but realised it wasn't available on WP8 so I downloaded it to my desktop, I find it very simple and easy to use and it does everything I want. I will check out ACDSee as well.

    you may really think about the Photoshop if you want to do the professional editing.
    I'm definitely not a professional, the user friendly photo editing software PhotoStudio is OK with me, and it's also a mac photo editor.
