Great tutorials for photo editing; not just for selfies.

The tools available in Facetune​ rival those found in desktop applications used by the pros. It's not a pick-it-up-and-get-it-right-the-first-time app, but demo photos are available for tutorials and practice. Different versions are available for the iPhone and the iPad; the larger screen is easier to edit on than the smaller screen of a phone. A comparison button on the bottom of the screen allows users to see an instant before-and-after comparison, and an undo button lets them back out of any mistakes or overzealous edits. What sets Facetune apart from the selfie-editing apps is the ability to edit any photo, not just selfies.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
