In Social Media
Most Popular Photo on Facebook
Mandana(@mandana-picsart-com) was responsible for last week’s most popular photo on Facebook with 2261 likes and 64 shares. The image is of a young girl in a blue dress, and it is startlingly mesmerizing.

Joe Rydaa(@joeboyjc) produced the hottest picture from Twitter last week. A black and white image of a boy jumping, arms spread and legs hanging below him as if he is floating in the air.
Pencil Art Weekend Art Project #WAPpencilart
Last week, we wrapped up the Pencil Art WAP, in which users got creative with PicsArt’s Pencil Art Effect, converting parts of their photographs into pencil drawings and blending them in with their original images in interesting ways. We received 1510 images.
Outer Space Drawing Challenge #DCspace
The weekly Drawing Challenge last week called on users to draw out-of-this world images from outer space using the PicsArt drawing toolbox. Around 600 illustrations of outer space were submitted.

User Feedback From Google Play
Here are some of things users are saying about PicsArt on Google-Play:
Best app I’ve found. This app is great. It does everything the other apps do and more. It’s very intuitive, terrific for beginners and serious photo artists. I’ve tried every android photo app out there and none of them have the breadth of options that PicsArt does.

PicsArt is awesome! Seriously this is all-in-one software for painting and editing. I never give remarks about any app no matter how much I like it but I’m forced to comment on this one. It’s perfect. A friend told me about this and we both enjoyed a lot while making paintings and sketches. I love the brush variety most plus the stickers. That’s what’s most unique about it.

Use this app alll the time. Great edit app. People always ask how I get my pictures to look so professional:-)
Raquel Arredondo, 31.05.2013
Really good app. You can use all sorts of effects on your photos, and even correct photos your not happy with (blemish remover, teeth whitener, tanner) which is useful and fun!!! You can also make awesome photo album style collages, and also it doubles up as a drawing app cos there is the option of drawing on a plain background, with lots of different brushes. I am really pleased with this app and its easy to use and fun, no better from any paying app! 🙂

Awsome app. This is the first photo-editing program that I actually understand all the other ones I’ve tried, I could never figure them out, but this one is a cakewalk. Great job I gave 5 stars.
Speedy Gonzalez, 01.06.2013
Amazing! I love the app! It has a lot of features and I can really let my creative side out with this. It has a lot of features on the free side!
