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.

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.

Developer Spotlight: Alexander Tsepko of FX Photo Studio

TiPb's developer spotlights are like DVD/iTunes Extras for the App Store -- a weekly look behind the scenes at the programers and designers that bring you the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps and games you love. This week Rene talks with Alexander Tsepko from MacPhun.

Note: This interview was conducted a few days before WWDC 2011.

What's your name? Alexander Tsepko. Some people call me AT.

What's your company? MacPhun LLC.

Where are you located? USA and Ukraine (Europe). Most of MacPhun people are located in these two countries. But we also have freelancers (developers, beta testers, designers) in some other countries around the world. These people give us great input on what features to include in apps. For example we collected suggestions on what filters to include in FX Photo Studio from all continents and it is absolutely amazing how tastes differ.

What's your website address? www.macphun.com – corporate home page, which is now in the process of remaking, but you can get an idea about what applications we have developed. Also we have www.fxphotostudioapp.com, www.perfectphotoapp.com, www.silentfilmdirector.com and www.cartoonaticapp.com for our most loved apps.

What's your Twitter name? Mostly I use @fxphotostudio where I share news about our photo applications, iPhoneography and all fun things. You can say it is both personal and business; I am not a type of person to keep several accounts for different purposes. Don’t have that much time. Also there is @silentfilmdir, where we tweet about things related to video with iPhone and iPod touch.

What apps do you make? We have a photo processing application FX Photo Studio for iPhone and FX Phone Studio HD for iPad. There is a version for iOS and newly released version for Mac OS, which is called FX Photo Studio PRO. Then we have Silent Film Director for iOS. This app lets you create awesome retro movies. Photo editor for iPhone Perfect Photo and photo editor for iPad PhotoPal. Also fresh and free video app Cartoonatic for shooting animated videos. This is by far my favorite app. I am a big A-HA fan and this app lets you create music video which will look almost like that famous “Take on me” clip. We have developed more apps, but these are the titles which people and us love and use most.

What apps, other than your own, are currently among your favorites? As a photo and video fanboy I really love Instagram for sharing and innovations, QuickPix for speed, Super 8 for style and LensFlare for almost everything about it. Also I am greatly enjoying the app, called SkyView, it lets you see some mind blowing things around you. And I play Infinity Blade quite often: have spent lots of money on in-app purchases, so I am not surprised they are among top grossing apps. Wondering if guys from Chair Entertainment Group ever purchased in-apps in FX Photo Studio☺
