Lightricks Press Release
Lightricks Introduces Highly Anticipated Facetune for iPad, Immediately Featured as #1 Best New App by Apple
Facetune, the best-selling portrait editing iPhone app, is finally available for iPad and iPad mini
Jerusalem, IL, (09/26/13). Lightricks Ltd. (http://www.lightricks.com) today released Facetune for iPad, an app that gives every user the ability to create high-end portraits from everyday photos, with intuitive and powerful tools previously reserved for the pros. Facetune for iPad offers all the advantages of Facetune for iPhone, but with unprecedented user control, strikingly natural results, and an ease of use never seen before.
“Facetune for iPad is a game changer,” says Zeev Farbman, Lightricks’ CEO. “Facetune’s revolution was offering every user the ability to achieve magazine-level portraits on the go. Facetune for iPad provides a whole new experience, by stretching the limits of technology with a product that’s both powerful and approachable.”
“The iPad is the ultimate device for photo-editing. It doesn’t matter if you shoot with your iPad, or import photos from your phone or professional camera, Facetune for iPad lets you achieve results comparable only to what professionals can do with Photoshop. And it’s way more fun.”
Facetune is a novel image editing application that uses Lightricks’ proprietary LTEngine™ and SafeBrush™ technologies, which are the basis of a line of exciting and powerful photo editing products for mobile devices. Facetune for iPad was featured as the #1 Best New App on the US iTunes Store, whereas Facetune for iPhone was featured as #1 New & Noteworthy Photo & Video app, was ranked #1 in photo & video in 107 countries, and #1 paid app in 41 countries.
Lightricks simultaneously released a new iPhone version, in which most of the features were upgraded, and several new ones added. There have been major enhancements in every tool, which allow for more powerful and accurate results. The menus now have a totally different look, with safer and quicker import and export. The help system offers beautiful graphics and short video demonstrations of each tool. Users can now apply unique photo textures and localized filters, meaning that each filter effect (lighting, paper and textures) can now be applied in full, or only to specific areas of the photo. In addition to Red-Eye correction, Facetune can now deal with white-eye flash effects as well.
