It’s beautiful June and that means that the trees have at last grown out their billowing green canopies, flowers have spread their petals, and the sun is starting to reach its full skin-roasting potential. We’re on the brink of summer, but let us not get too far ahead of ourselves. First, let us take a moment to recap last week’s biggest developments and most exciting photos.

Perched at the top of our agenda in this Week in Review is our iOS Update, which lets you sync your custom clipart while broadening your pallette of blending options and effects. On our Daily Journal, we took you on a culinary journey through East Asia with the photos of our users, showed you 10 settings to change on your camera, and introduced you to some of the best PicsArtists in the PicsArt office. That’s the broad look but there was a lot more.

Dive in below to start this Monday off with last week’s best!

Best! by HARISH NAIK

Best photo editing software in market So far best app I’ve used. Simple and easy to use.

Wow by Jessica Morrison

I freakin love this app I use it at least 2-3 times a day for editing my wallpapers I make and to edit my personal pictures

AMAZING by Brad Arthur

it’s all you need! I have literally downloaded and tried every single photo edit app out there and THIS ONE is the ONLY one that has all features in one! The others are either worthless or have limited features. The only add on I use with this app is wallpaper packages to use as backgrounds for edits. FIVE STARS!!!
