3.Can adjust contrast

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 curves

Adjusting tonal curves allows you to selectively adjust the exposure and contrast within an image.
5.Can capture photos
Snapseed
VSCO Cam
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 saturation
Snapseed
VSCO Cam
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.

Effects

1.Has HDR adjustment
Snapseed
VSCO Cam
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
Snapseed
VSCO Cam
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
Snapseed
VSCO Cam
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.
