Nowadays, what's a photo without a filter? Absolutely nothing. You can spend loads of money on the best camera, on lenses, tripods, lights... But without a filter, a sticker, a frame, an effect or whatever you like, your photo will be very boring. And as we're so modern, before uploading and sharing an image it's totally necessary to edit it with an app to transform it. But what happens when an application offers you a complete picture editing kit and an image social network? PicMix - Photos in Collages merges both tools into a new concept for your mobile device.
What happens when the two best photo apps get together? One app to rule them all!
What tools will I find in this image editor?
To make the most of the full potential of this application, you'll first have to create a new account or log in through Google, Facebook or Twitter. Then, you can use the app as a social network, a photo editor, or both. With PicMix you can access the following functions:
- Simple image editor. You can split the image as many times as you want, transform it, apply filters, change the edges, apply frames, insert effects, modify the brightness and contrast, add stickers (that you'll have to unlock previously), etc.
- Create a collage. The functions are the same as in the case of a single image but applied to a collage.
- Apply frames. The latter are unlocked one by one or in packs by watching short videos.
- Record or edit videos.
- Create yo-yo clips.
- Take part in seasonal photography contests.
From the PicMix social network, you'll be able to meet new people or add your friends, share your creations, and take part in trending topics similar to those of Twitter that have to do with all sorts of interesting and witty subjects such as good night, happy Sunday or good morning.
Which one's better? PicMix or PicStory?
Both applications offer us a crossover between a social network and an image editing tool. Each one of them adapts better to one social network or another, depending on the time available, how many friends you've added, the functions provided... In this case, although PicStory's editor is very easy to use, the one included in PicMix is much more complete and doesn't have any social networking problems, unlike the first case. We could say that PicStory is probably more focused on beginners.
