We had a really big week, a week that saw PicsArt surpass a major milestone and release a fantastic new update. PicsArt surpassed 77 million installs and 7 million registered users. Meanwhile, the brand new update that we released for Android last week retooled the app with a whole host of new features, including a fully upgraded user profile.

All of this was on top of a week that saw tremendous contest entries and artwork from our community, as well as some truly awesome tutorials that you really would not want to miss!

9/4/13

PicsArt is a great photo editing application which is downloadable through iTunes (iOS users) and Google Play (Android users). Picsart, for me, is wonderful because it is very easy to use and a user has so many options to choose. It is like a professional photo editing application designed for smartphones! Their tagline is very interesting, “Where everyone becomes a great artist.” and it is very true. Just try to explore about the application and I am pretty sure you’ll be amazed and you’ll love the result.

PicsArt Tutorial: How to Frame Photos with PicsArt Using Border Options

If you are new to PicsArt, you might be interested in finding out how to frame your photos using the PicsArt app. This feature is one that mirrors real life; it allows you to frame your art! People often spend hundreds of dollars framing their artwork, but we decided that our users should be able to do the same for free! Framing pictures and photos helps to draw attention to the work, to accentuate the form and to present your art at its best.   

Photo Tutorial: Using the Background in Photo Composition

When taking a photo, it’s easy to get your attention so wrapped up in your main subject that nothing else matters. And while this is a great feeling to have, it’s important that we pay attention to at least one other thing: what is off in the distance, creating the background that surrounds your focal point. A poorly composed background can distract attention from what’s important in your photo; however, if done right, it can enhance the subject, and even take a leading role in telling your visual story.
