Last week had so much to offer in terms of inspiration, tips, and artistic discovery, so today we’re recapping the last seven days to get you up to speed.

From new packages to thrilling contests, like our Street Musician Drawing Challenge, there was loads to get excited about. We learned about shutter speeds from pro Chris Corradino, we visited Greece through the photos of users, and we officially beautified the walls of our San Francisco office, concluding our #BeautifyPicsArt project. We also introduced the community to some awesome users like Camille Delahaye (@delacam), a rowing champion in Eastern France who is also an extremely talented photographer.

Catch up on all of this and more below!

User Feedback From Google Play

Here are some of the things users are saying about PicsArt on Google Play:

You just blew my mind with the latest update! by Angel Hill

Thank you for listening Picsart! Next on my wishlist, the ability to see the font name within the app or the ability to add unlimited fonts. Minimally, a sort option would be helpful so that I can switch out fonts as needed. Maybe instead of “preview text” it could show the filename of the font.

Wow by hassan kdouh

This is, literally, the best photo editor app i’ve ever seen in my life, i’d rate it six stars if i could, too bad there’s only five.. Perfect app, thank you, THANK YOU!!

User Feedback From the App Store

Here are some of things users are saying about PicsArt in the App Store:

🙂 by Angry Mom123456

My favorite editing app. I get transparents online and use this app. I use it for every picture. I also love the filter Sea Foam. It’s really beautiful. It would be AWESOME if you added some more background choices like sceneries? 🙂

I love this app! by Kelly Tessa

This is my favorite editing app! There’s so many options and so many things you can do 🙂

Amazing! by lam2nd_V6

I don’t usually write reviews, but this app is too amazing not to leave one! I wanted something I could design a new logo for my football team with, and this app allows me to do that, and so much more! The design options are endless! Keep up the great work!
