Sprite Press Release
Paint FX adds advanced and most powerful HDR tools on the App Store
Sprite Labs today released Paint FX 3.1, an update to its popular photography app for iOS devices. Paint FX allows anyone to selectively apply photo enhancements, filters, effects and colors to specific parts of a photo. Version 3.1 adds 3 new HDR effects with advanced controls that can provide full customization to get just the right HDR look on the photos as well as adds new effects including “Flame”, “Cracked Paint”, “Cracked Tile”, “Grunge Film”, “Handmade Paper” and more.
Fremont, California - Sprite Labs today is proud to announce the most powerful version of Paint FX yet. The latest update adds the most advanced and flexible HDR effects available on the App Store. Besides an auto HDR effect, there are a couple of HDR Pro effects which include half a dozen controls to provide the right customization and the look in mind for a photo. Adding to the existing capabilities of Paint FX where each effect can be selectively applied to any part of the photo, with any transparency, and the ability to combine and layer one effect on top of another, all with the easy to use interface, makes Paint FX the best HDR editing tool on the App Store, for both advanced and new photography users.
“HDR has been high on our minds for a while and something we have been working on for a long time. We are really excited to bring these extensive set of tools to get the right HDR look. We have received some really positive feedback from early high end iphoneographers, and are looking forward to see what users do with these tools”, said Nikita Sawant, Creative Director at Sprite Labs.
The latest update also continues to add to the already rich library of effects in Paint FX, with some new effects including “Flame”, “Cracked Paint”, “Cracked Tile”, “Grunge Film”, “Handmade Paper” and more.
Right after initial release, Paint FX got “New and Noteworthy” and “Staff Favorite” banners thanks to its unique features. Paint FX is the first app on the App Store that gives users the ability to decide whether to adjust the whole picture, or just a certain part of it. The choice is not limited to just one effect - Paint FX also allows applying multiple effects on top of each other. The app is perfect for adding just a little bit of flair or completely re-imagine a photo.
With Paint FX anyone can create professionally looking photos with just a few taps without any special knowledge. Users can easily change the color of the hair and clothes or give themselves a tan. Wide collection of filters and photo effects, which was significantly extended with the update, allows users to express themselves in tons of different ways. Such filters as Sketch, Hue, Cartoonize, and Threshold will easily turn photos into professional looking pieces.
All filters and effects are 100% customizable. Users can customize each effect and apply as many effects as they want on one picture. There is also a possibility to control brightness, contrast, and saturation with pinpoint accuracy. The app is comprehensive and the design is nice and clean and users can easily indulge their creativity and share it with the world. Paint FX will truly enthrall users with its rich feature set and endless possibilities it offers with its customizable effects and filters.
