  • Android: Lots of touchup tools on the HTC One

    When you tap on Retouch several options will appear, giving you a Photoshop Lite experience. The available tools actually are a bit dynamic too and will change depending on the photo you are viewing. For example, if someone photo bombed you then an option to remove that person may appear. Unfortunately, there is not much manual control over this option.

    Tools available to you with Retouch include skin smoothing, lighting, face contour, eye enhancer, red eye removal, eye brightening, and anti-shine. As you can see most of these are focused on adjusting photos of people.

  • Android: Let's make my face more narrow

    The last available tool is called Transform and allows you the ability to rotate, crop, flip, and straighten your photo.

  • Android: My what big eyes you have granny

  • Huh?

    I don't understand the point of this article. It seems to only apply to people who own the HTC One for which there aren't that many. I wish the author would amend the title to attract HTC One owners so that people like me don't waste their time.
