I'd also recommend Snapseed for mobile editing
There is a free lightroom app for iphone and android that incorporates a lot that you can do on the full computer version. Filters in other apps are a great shortcut, but you can check out how manipulating different aspects of the image like exposure, clarity, saturation, etc change the final image and see what you like. Lightroom is what a lot of pros use for post-processing (again... I am far from a pro).
Try looking: File Manager>All Files>Internal Storage>DCIM>Camera
The .dng files are stored there. You can spot them easily as they have no thumbnail. Though it should be in your gallery too with a DNG icon.
Adobe Lightroom is free now. Lots like it for RAW editing.
Do you mean as in photo editing or taking?
Also what phone do you have? Often the stock camera app for phones has so many features that you don't really need an external app.
For photo editing, I'd say the <strong>Adobe Lightroom app</strong>. It's easy to use and quite powerful.
Check out Adobe Lightroom CC on Play Store. It's free and is a much better camera app with my Pixel 2 XL. Whenever I take pics of my printed/painted minis I use this to ensure a better picture.
Several phones can. RAW support was added to the Android API in Lollipop.
Check out Camera FV-5 and Adobe Lightroom, among other camera apps.
Lightroom is the only other one I know that allows for RAW editing and such. I'm more of a Snapseed kinda guy, but to each his own.
You can get a usb adapter to your phone and download Photoshop Lightroom to edit your pics
That's if you want the full quality or else you can upload the pic and download it
but that's not as good quality (still not too bad)
have you tried using the lightroom raw HDR? it's pretty impressive on my pixel, curious what it can get out of the OP5. Adobe just added support for it in a recent update but i haven't been able to find any good reviews of raw HDR on the OP5.
...or just use Lightroom Mobile. It's free now.
Edit: Initial testing has revealed that Lightroom Mobile will only open DNG files, so I'm testing out a RAW->DNG converter. Would be really nice to be able to edit RAW photos on the road.
Edit 2: This free app worked to convert an ARW format RAW file (from my Sony A6000) into a DNG that Lightroom Mobile will edit. Just make sure to drop the DNG files inside the DCIM folder, or Lightroom will be stubborn about seeing the files. That app supposedly converts other RAW formats into DNG, but I'm unable to test that. Supposedly it even supports transferring RAW files over wifi from Sony cameras, which I haven't yet tried, but if that actually works it's the friggin bee's knees.
Some ideas for phone shooting:
Make sure you're always using the lowest ISO possible. High ISO is horrible in camera apps, and I'm pretty sure it stays set as auto even in 'pro' mode. I try to stay under 200 when shooting on my phone. If photos get too dark, stand your phone on something - a desk, stack of books, whatever, and set a longer exposure time. NEVER use digital zoom. Get yourself a Lightroom Mobile, it's both camera and editing app, toy around with it. Use it's noise reduction function, it's under Presets (3 circles icon at the bottom) -> Detail. Do as little cropping as possible, get closer to the model instead.
As for d3000 kit - it's a good enough starter set if you have good price IMO. I'd still get some Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 or similar Sigma to replace stock lenses eventually. Quality ceiling on any DSLR will be higher than what smartphone camera offers, but as I said earlier - before rushing to buy one, make sure you actually need it and are willing to spend time learning.
If you ever feel like messing around with them, I believe that this app supports Raw editing. [link]
It's the mobile version of the desktop program that I use to edit my photos.
