PicsArt - Photo Studio is an excellent program for creating, discovering and sharing photos with your friends.

Packed with editing tools

Much like other photo editors such as Fresh Paint or Photoshop Express, PicsArt Photo Studio lets you personalize the photos you take on your phone.

The reason PicsArt - Photo Studio is such a stand-out program is due to the sheer number of options you have for customizing your photos. You can take pictures from your phone's camera, or import them from Picasa, Dropbox, OneDrive, or Flickr.

Once you've taken a picture or loaded one, you have a lot of different editing options to play around with. PicsArt - Photo Studio has lots of different effects to alter the feel of the picture you just took. You can also draw onto an image to add a bit more life to it, or to highlight a particular area of the picture.

You can apply effects to your photos with PicsArt, choosing from a decent range of preset filters, some of which can be tweaked. There's also a collage maker, where you can create impressive montages based on photos you've taken.

The Windows Phone version of PicsArt is more limited the Android app, and several of the options and creative tools of the Android version are missing still.

Share your creations

By creating an account on PicsArt's website, you can share your images with other PicsArt - Photo Studio users, as well as browse photos taken by others. There's also the option to export and share your photos on social networks like Facebook, as well as other platforms like Tumblr, Dropbox and Flickr.

The user interface in the Windows Phone version of PicsArt looks good and although it's a bit overwhelming at first you'll be flying around it once you get the hang of it. The app can be laggy at times, however.

It's a photo finish

PicsArt - Photo Studio is an impressively comprehensive photo editing and sharing app
