PicsArt Photo Studio
A great fun image editor app with lots of features, plus social and sharing options
Pros & Cons:
PicsArt Photo Studio is a great fun image editor app with lots of features, plus social and sharing options. It comes in with a camera app to add additional functions, like sequence shot, to your device camera.
With PicsArt, you can add lots of really great different filters and effects to your images. I have found plenty of options for each effect and lots of choices especially for a free app. There is also an option to add stickers and borders to your images, and add text either as an overlay or as a speech bubble, very useful as a productive tool or just for fun.
PicsArt also has a draw or paint feature. You can either draw on an existing image or create your own masterpiece on a blank canvas. It has a collage making feature so you can create collages from your photos.
Of course, basic editing features have never been short changed. It has handy tools to rotate, crop, free crop, shape crop, flip and re-size images, and a range of correction tools to enhance your photos such as red eyes removal, blemish fix, teeth whitening, sunless tan, eye color change and even face fix, which helps smoothen the look of the skin.
Images you want to edit with PicsArt don't even need to be had on your mobile device; you can retrieve images directly from Facebook, Dropbox, Flickr or from your PicsArt account. Image processing time I found to be quite speedy, and once your image is created you can share easily to a lot of social sites such as Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, Dropbox, Foursquare, Blogger, WordPress and of course PicsArt. The image can also be sent via email or SMS, or just saved to your SD card.
Although it's not necessary to sign up to use the app, the PicsArt account mentioned above gives you an option to upload and share images with other PicsArt users.
To sum up, PicsArt, our Editors' Choice, is like Photoshop Express and Instagram combined, with great features.
Besides the Android version, this app is also made available to iOS and Windows users.
