The American poet and historian, Henry David Thoreau, once wrote that “This world is but a canvas to our imagination.” We highly doubt that Mr. Theoreau had considered that we’d be looking at miniature screens that allowed us to not only paint and draw digitally but to share our imagination with just a simple touch of a button. One of the most well-known photo studio applications is PicsArt.
Regarded as the number one All-in-One Photo Editor with over 300 million installs on Windows 10, PicsArt is committed to spreading inspiration and art to users worldwide. In fact, Microsoft showcased the application as an ‘excellent tool’ in April earlier this year. Today, the application is ra large update that newly renovated the full design.
After opening the app, the user is greeted with the new Explore page showcasing the global community. This is where featured creations and tutorials will be highlighted for easy browsing. Just below those are the editing tools made available for the user to dive in.
Users will be able to find each section of PicsArt easily made available to them at the top of the screen.
