This can be used to rotate the image for an interesting effect, or more commonly to correct the image if it is at a slight angle.
2.Can adjust brightness
Pixlr Express

If your photo is too bright or dark, you can adjust the brightness in order to get a well-balanced image.
3.Can adjust contrast

Snapseed
Adjusting the contrast affects the difference between light and dark areas of the image. You can fine tune it to meet your needs, such as increasing the contrast to make your subject stand out more.
4.Can adjust saturation
Pixlr Express
Snapseed
Saturation refers to the intensity of colors. It is measured on a scale ranging from 0% (black and white) to 100% (pure colors) at a constant level of brightness. Images with high levels of saturation have vivid colors, while unsaturated images appear greyish.
5.Can capture photos
Pixlr Express
Snapseed
You can take photos within the app. This allows you to do everything from capturing the image to editing all within one app, instead of having to import an image taken with another camera app.
6.Can adjust curves

Snapseed
Adjusting tonal curves allows you to selectively adjust the exposure and contrast within an image.
7.has manual white balance

With manual white balance you can choose the most accurate setting and avoid the green, blue or red hue which can occur in auto mode. You can also change the setting for artistic effect.
8.Has selective adjustment points
Pixlr Express
Snapseed
Using selective adjustment points, you can change the settings (such as saturation, brightness, etc.) of a particular part of the image. This is useful if you wish to edit certain areas without changing the whole photo - for instance, if you wish to increase the color intensity of an object in the image.

Effects

1.Has HDR adjustment
Pixlr Express
Snapseed
You can add an HDR-style effect to the image, whereby the darker areas appear brighter and the bright areas appear darker - giving your image more dynamic range. This gives you an image which looks more akin to how the human eye sees it, rather than a camera.
Filters allow you to apply effects to your image with one touch, usually with a range of effects such as retro films or sketches.
The app offers more frame styles to add around the border of your image.
4.Has sharpening tool
Pixlr Express
Snapseed
Image sharpening tools emphasize the edges within an image. This can be applied to a blurred image to make it appear sharper and more detailed.
5.Has tilt shift
Pixlr Express
Snapseed
Tilt shift is a technique which can be used to achieve the “diorama” effect, whereby you can make normal images look as if they were taken of small models. It works by applying a blur to parts of the image which simulates a shallower depth of field, even on objects far away.
6.Captioning
Pixlr Express
Snapseed
You can add captions and titles to your photos.
7.Has brushes
Pixlr Express
Snapseed
Using the brush tool you can paint across the image, or use it to make small adjustments to touch up the image.
