Is PicsArt the next Instagram?
PicsArt, the all-in-one photo editing, drawing and social network app, is making some big strides. Since its launch in 2011, the young startup now has over 200 million users and is catching investors’ attention. So what makes PicsArt tick? Compared to similar apps like Instagram or Flickr, PicsArt simply does it all. It has a powerful, well designed interface that offers a complex range of photo editing tools, including curves, masks, clone/stamp, cropping with shape, brushes, borders, text and lens flare and many more. It also has a social network that lets users accumulate followers, share photos, join contests and interact with each other. Other similar apps limit creativity by only allowing users to add a filter or adjust photos using simple editing tools. PicsArt, on the other hand, offers users the ability to edit raw photo with a complete array of effects and tools to play with, allowing users to enhance their photos to the hilt. This is precisely the reason why PicsArt has attracted millions of users in such a short time and has become a place where people rediscover their creativity.
