features during the forecast period. This will reduce the dependence on
a dedicated photo editing software for mobile phones. For instance,

software and provides saving options," according to Ishmeet.
Growing number of mobile photo editing software
Nowadays, vendors are providing photo editing software for mobile
devices such as smartphones and tablets. The high processing power of
mobile devices is the most important reason for this initiative. For
instance, the latest flagship smartphone from Samsung, Galaxy S7, has a
Snapdragon 820 chipset by Qualcomm with a 4 GB random access memory.
Snapdragon 820 consists of a 64-bit quad-core CPU and a highly advanced
Adreno 530 GPU. It has more clock speed than an Intel Core i3 4005U
processor used in a desktop. Another major advantage of mobile devices
is that the input method in most of them are through touch screens
rather than a mouse, keyboard, or personal computer (PC).
Rising number of face editing software
The growing trend of selfies in social media platforms has increased the
demand for face editing software. The number of apps with face editing
features, coupled with filters, have increased in the app stores of iOS
and Android, two major mobile OS platforms.
