    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.





    Device: Nokia Lumia 920 (Black)
    Firmware: 8.0.10517.150

    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)

    Before:

    After:

    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.
