Recommended: FX Photo Studio HD

First things first, if any of you would like to argue that this is not the cutest puppy in the world I’m happy to debate that with you at great length. That’s not the purpose of this short post though – which is to recommend the excellent FX Photo Studio HD app.

I’m not going to even attempt a review on this one because I’m just not adept enough at using photo effects apps in general to do it justice. What I can say though is that even with my clumsy, very amateur touch with these sort of apps, FX Photo Studio lets me create (what I think are) some lovely images from existing photos. Like the one above that took just one tap to render the ‘Vintage’ effect onto my photo.

What I’m getting at is that this app strikes me as plenty powerful and feature-packed, but also extremely simple to use – even for a clumsy eediot like myslef.

Here’s a little more detail on the app via its App Store page:

Here is just a short list of some effects contained in the application:
Vintage, Black and White, Night Vision, Pencil Paint, False Mirror, Ghost, Neon Light, Hue Green, Ripped Glass, Rainbow Palette, Scary Face, Ancient Canvas, Steamy Window, Stardust Frame, Mosaic, Burnt Paper, Explosion, Old Film Frame, Bump Mapping, Solarize, Tritone, Old Photo, Frost, Old TV and there are many many more!

What’s the sense of buying numerous different applications containing only a small number of effects, if you can get this app which currently features 128 most diverse filters and effects! You will surely find those which are most suitable for your needs.

I’ve tried a number of photo effects and image manipulation apps on the iPad and iPhone; there are lots of very good ones, but I have to say this has rapidly become my favorite.

This is my original picture of our lovely puppy, just for reference and so that you all can bask in her puppy cuteness:


And when you grow tired of basking in her cuteness (as if) you can find FX Photo Studio HD in the App Store now, priced at $3.99.

    1. Thanks for the kind words – I'm very glad to hear you're enjoying the site. The pup is a she, and we just got her a couple days ago. Her personality is just as lovely as she is.
