The word is out: Pantone has named 2019’s color of the year “Living Coral,” and we are beyond excited to see how this underwater gem breathes creative energy into your edits over the next year. via PicsArt Why coral? Pantone’s color of the year is meant to capture the shades of emotion that come at the end of each respective year. Similar to 2017’s Greenery, 2019 goes back to the natural world for answers to all of our artistic questions. When asked about the upcoming year’s color, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute talked about the marvels of our modern age, and the fundamental need for something natural, something human, to ease the edges of modernity. And so, there was Coral. via PicsArt Lively coral is a pretty stark departure from 2018’s Ultra Violet. If last year was all about bold tones, confidence and optimism, Lively Coral is…

Winter doesn’t get nearly enough credit. All too often, the months between November and March are painted with grey brushes, barren landscapes and sedentary lives waiting for a glimpse of Spring. It’s time to break the Winter blues and take the season of shimmering snowflakes for exactly what it is: positively enchanting. Our VIN4 FLTR will bring out all of the arctic beauty your winter landscape photos have to offer. via PicsArt Sometimes, landscape photos just don’t do your favorite views justice. That’s where our FLTRs come in. When it comes to nature photos, we like to think of each FLTR as a way to capture the biting wind rushing past as you stand at the edge of a mountain cliff, the silence of a dense forest shown by cool shades of brown and green, and just how many shades of red and orange a California sunset can hold. via…

The festival of lights is here, and our Hanukkah Templates are ready to make your holiday edits sparkle. via PicsArt You would be hard-pressed to find a holiday more steeped in tradition than Hanukkah.

Today, Jewish communities around the world celebrate this miracle by lighting a candle for each night of the revolt. Families come together to celebrate their history, eating the crispy latkes…
