☀☀☀☀ Pixlr is a free app allowing you to edit photos or create collages on all platforms, with features comparable to Adobe Photoshop Express. Pixlr has a wider array of editing tools and may be easier for beginners, but Photoshop Express is the better collage option. Formerly Pixlr Express, the app’s fine-tuning abilities go well beyond the basics, but everything is laid out in a straightforward manner, so even novices can navigate the app. Journalists are always searching for quality in a quick editor, and this does the job. You can even use the web version of Pixlr at home. — Cole Feinbloom
