By Hovhannes Avoyan, CEO Dear PicsArtists! We are finishing out 2017 on a strong note by reaching over 100 million monthly active PicsArtists. This year has been an amazing journey, in which we announced many important features, reached several important milestones, and continued to build our community and free-to-edit resources. All major improvements were driven by you. We always listen to what you have to say, and work hard to deliver what we feel is important for you! The PicsArt community is like a family, and many of you make friends here and communicate frequently. We understood this need for new ways of communication, which is why earlier this year we introduced Remix Chat – chat powered by images. It is a creative way to communicate via pictures, and allows groups to privately share photos and messages. Many of our users use chat intensively, using it as a fun, collaborative…

We know you’ve been waiting for it — finally, the last installment in our Best of 2016 series. Of course, we had to save the best for last with remixes! Remixes really exemplify the collaborative spirit of the PicsArt fam. The fact that you can upload a picture and see it transformed by hundreds of people around the world is definitely one of the key features that makes us special. So, without further ado, I present to you our favorite remixes of 2016 in no particular order. Your everyday coffee just got a SERIOUS twist. An already intriguing portrait shot gets a whimsical doodle added on. Because in the end, don’t we all want to be mermaids? What is it about drinks and doodles that we love so much? It calls to the inner doodling artist in all of us. This edit kinda reminds us of Hogwarts and we want it…

You asked. We answered. Daily Inspirations are coming back… and with a fresh new look! What’s New We’ve redesigned the Contests section and transformed it into the Challenges section!

Both the Draw and Edit Challenges will remain weekly, while the Photo Challenge and Remix Challenge are daily. And we are slowly rolling this new design out, because we want this to be perfect, so don’t worry if you aren’t seeing it yet. The new look will be available for everyone by tomorrow! The Daily Photo Challenges Daily challenges aren’t just fun; they’re also a source of inspiration for many. That’s why we couldn’t be more excited about bringing them…

Last week was big for PicsArt. We launched an update of PicsArt with a new PicsArt logo and features like Magic Effects. We even released a cool and totally awesome Magic Video by PicsArt app. However, some of you were left out from our iOS-only release. Well, this time around, everyone will get to join in on all the fun. Early next week we will have a 100% rollout of the new PicsArt on Android! We’ve seen the magic many of our iOS users have created with our new features, and we can’t wait for the rest of the fam to start creating with these tools as well.  Let’s celebrate the update together! Take a picture or make a fun edit that includes your Android phone and share it to PicsArt with the hashtag #CelebrateAndroid. We might even share a few of your pictures on our @PA account. Yours Truly, Jerrell

First things first… We are SO EXCITED about the recent release of the updated and redesigned PicsArt. A new logo. Sleeker user interface. More new tools to take your picture (and now video) editing game to the next level. And, I want to just give a shout-out to the entire PicsArt family: our team in Armenia who is so clutch, so talented, so AWESOME; our team in San Francisco for all the hard work and effort; and, of course, the most important reason for our continual success and growth and amazingness… YOU! Give yourself a handclap. Your pictures are amazing, and they inspire us to develop new ways and features that will empower you. Now, with that said, I need to address something. Android Release Coming Soon We love our PicsArt fam. And we apologize, because we know many of the fam use PicsArt on Android, and at this moment, only our…

Okay, so, I have to tell you something. I’m not good with surprises. Having a surprise party? Probably shouldn’t invite me. Got a deep secret? Ugh, I’m the worst, don’t share. Did you miss that new Game of Thrones episode? Avoid me. But now that you know that about me, maybe you can understand why I have to tell you these two things: 1) Daily Photo Challenges are coming back (Yay!) 2) I’m PicsArt’s new Senior Community Manager (Yay!) Some secrets are worth sharing. Let’s talk about that first (not so much) secret. Daily Photo Challenges Are Back We hear you. The team at PicsArt lives by those words. From the day I started, I’ve had countless conversations with other team members, read through pages of feedback from users, and the one thing I’ve noticed is that everyone involved with the PicsArt community only wants to see it grow and…

Welcome to the second edition of the PicsArt Creative Trends Report — the industry’s first and only look into the popular and emerging trends in photo-sharing, based on the collective edits of more than 70 million people from around the globe. This summer, the images people are sharing show a shift towards playfulness and self-transformation… Which makes sense as this is the unofficial season of fun and reinvention. Below are the top creative techniques people are using to transform themselves and the fastest rising and most popular photo effects of season. Top Creative Trends One of the hottest trends this summer is what we’ve deemed #mermaidlife, where people are finding their inner sea gods and goddesses by turning themselves into mermaids (and mermen!), complete with shimmering scales — talk about the ultimate #summergoals. Dotted lines are also now a thing. We love this modern day paper doll trend because the…
