One of the most fun things we can do with the photos we capture on our smartphones is add some groovy effects to it. There are plenty of photo editing apps on the Play store that offer options to turn your photos into something magical. Photo Lab is one such app that has by far some of the most versatile and amazing collection of effects. In fact they have over 555 effects that are truly good that you may want to try every one of them once you get started.
Photo Lab Review
Photo Lab is free to download, but not all effects are available for free. But there are enough free ones to try. You can access the Pro features by paying $3.99.
The Home page of the app is a tabbed area that displays Popular, Categories, Seasonal and Favorites. The categories are displayed in a card like format and tapping on any category displays all the effects available in that category. You have categories ranging from face montages ( that turns you into Rambo) to the face of a Magazine cover, to even celebrity collages.
Adding Cool Photo Effects on Photo Lab
To get started, you must first choose an effect from any of the categories. Once you’ve selected an effect, you are taken to the editing page where you can add a photo from the samples given within, capture one from your camera, pick one from your gallery or pull one from Facebook.
Once you have decided on a picture, you can do one of two things. Crop it in three different sizes, or rotate it around. Then simply hit the tick button at the top of the screen to apply the effect.
If you are happy with the effect, you can add text to it, share it with others, save the image on your phone, or even add the effect to your favorites. All the options are easily available at the top menu.
There is also a menu button at the top left of the screen that brings down a list of all the favorites, categories and effects making it easier for you to apply new effects quickly.
There is one feature that acts spoilsport and that is the watermark that is added to the finished images. However, it most cases it is camouflaged in the background so you may not notice it most times.
If you are looking to have some good fun with your photos, Photo Lab is an app that will definitely provide you with good times.
