App Giveaway: FX Photo Studio HD

MacPhun LLC have updated their popular iPad photography app, FX Photo Studio HD. It now has 7 new effects and the Masking Studio that they recently introduced to the iPhone version of FX Photo Studio.

The new Masking Studio is such an awesome addition to FX Photo Studio. I thought it was great on the iPhone, but on the iPad's big screen, the Masking Studio is amazing! You can zoom in real close to make sure you don't miss any details, and while painting (or erasing) the mask, a little box pops up in the corner so you can see precisely where your finger is placed on the photo. Very cool.

Powerful, creative and intuitive application to keep everyone amazed with your photography.

  • 194 photo effects and filters: lomo, vintage, art, tilt-shift, 3-D, textures, blurs, graffitti, pixelate, 3-D, etc
  • Masking - paint with effects
  • Color Splash Tool
  • Import from Facebook
  • Share to Instagram and other popular social networks

The update includes:

  • Masking Studio: apply effects to any part of the image
  • Color splash tool: apply selective colors to 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 via Air Print
  • Square crop option
  • Enhanced user interface
  • Restore in-app purchases from inside the app

5 photos on my iPad, god knows how many on my iPhone waiting so be sent over (thank you camera kit!) and probably 100+ sent to my Mac that I would rather edit on my iPad anywhere than sit in my office/studio editing on a desktop machine. I need more instagram fodder!

Jose Sanchez says:

I'm a photographer and I think it would be fun to do a photoshoot and edit the photos solely on my iPad. Hmm, I think 20-30 photos would be a good start!
