Adobe's does a more-than-decent job editing photos from your phone and from your account online.

There are fewer image-editing apps for Android than we'd like to see, which is why it's a good thing that Adobe created a version of its app for the Android platform. That is, if works on your phone at all. Although the simple, intuitive app produced a thumbnail gallery of saved photos on our Nexus One, it failed to read the SD card on our HTC Incredible and popped up a blank gallery.

Click "edit" to start cropping, straightening, color-correcting, and adding effects and borders. While there are generally enough tools to accomplish our aims, a few more features--such as red eye removal and rotating--wouldn't go amiss. Photos save to your phone's gallery and although you can upload them to (you'll need to register for an account), Facebook, or Twitter via TwitPic from the app, it's a shame you can't e-mail or SMS edited pics from within the app.

If you've got a account, you can also edit pictures from the app by switching from your Phone tab to the Online tab. No worries if you're not yet registered--you can sign up for a free account directly from the phone.

We hope that Adobe soon addresses compatibility issues with certain Android phones. In the meantime, since the app costs nothing to download but your time, it's one we recommend for mobile shutterbugs to try.
