FX Photo Studio for iPhone brings Masking Studio [giveaway]

MacPhun has updated their iPhone photo editing apps, FX Photo Studio, with a new Masking Studio. This allows the user to apply a filter to only part of an image.

Masking tool allows applying effects on a particular part of the image. With a selection of 194 effects, which can be customized and mixed, masking tools gives close to unlimited creative possibilities when it comes to image processing on your iDevice. Masking studio lets users choose a brush type and supports maximum iPhone 4 image resolution.

Here are all of the update details:

  • Masking Studio: apply effects to any part of the image
  • 7 new effects, including 3-D filter
  • Performance improvements - with some filters 2X faster processing
  • Improved editing tools: gamma, saturation, hues, etc
  • Improved in-app camera
  • Possibility to import images from Facebook
  • Instagram sharing
  • Centering for Tilt Shift, Radial Blur effects
  • Printing
  • Square crop option
  • Enhanced user interface
  • Restore in-app purchases from inside the app

The Masking Studio is such a great feature! I've never been much of a fan of drastic filters because although they make part of the picture look great, they commonly ruin (in my opinion) another part of the photo (like skin). I'm looking forward to seeing the type of images I can get out of FX Photo Studio with masking.

The good folks at MacPhun have given us a couple promo codes to give away to you! For a chance to win, let us know how many photos are in your camera roll!

FX Photo Studio is available on the iPhone for $1.99. Screenshots and video after the break.

FX Photo Studio for iPhone brings Masking Studio [giveaway]


I have 276 photos in my camera roll.
My friend has bought FX Photo Studio and i can say it has some beautifull photo effects.

If I get more than 50 snaps I move them to bigger longer term storage, but I always have a few hundred at my finger tips.

I just went through and backed up and/or erased about half of them just last week... down to 507 currently, and would LOVE to mess with a few using the FX Photo Studio app!

Looking at a lean 575! I go on purges every month or 2 to keep it reasonable. I was really excited for finally being able to organized photos in iOS 5 until it just turned out that it sym linked things but they all stayed on the roll. Oh well, guess this will just motivate me to keep my photo roll organized.

327 on the phone, over 2000 transferred to the desktop to conserve disk space. Newborn pics. You know how that goes
