READ THIS! by Jpoop77
THIS APP DOES IT ALL! I have every app for art, photography, digital art, effects, cut/paste, colors, frames, pic over pic, blur, mirror, color splash, and anything camera or photo related. Now I don’t need any of them, PicsArt does it all. I have spent the last three hrs playing with album photos and shooting pics of random stuff in my living room and turning it into the amazing art I’ve ever seen. I do not get paid to review, this is the real deal. This is the way apps should be!
The best editing app. by Perdeep Mehta
PicsArt is one of the best editing apps I’ve ever used. It makes my boring pictures turn into vibrant interesting pictures. It’s so easy to use and amazing!
