PicSay 5.5: Fantastic New Typography Tools for iOS
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but that may not be enough to tell the whole story or express the motion behind a photograph. That’s why the mobile generation is flocking to PicSay (the former name Text on Pictures), the free mobile app for iOS devices that enhances photos with creative filters, fonts, stickers and other special effects.
Created by G-Power, the developer of popular photo enhancement tools like Piczoo and Mixoo, PicSay puts high-powered graphic effects as close as an iPhone or iPad screen and as easy to use as a simple finger swipe. Users can add personal quotes and photo captions, create posters advertising graphics, produce posts for their favorite social media platform and turn their best work into iPhone wallpaper.
PicSay comes with an extensive library of more than 100 fonts and text art and a toolbox that lets users adjust sizes, colors, positioning and alignment. A set of basic filters will adjust lighting, textures and add effects such as blurring. Photos can also be decorated with stickers to celebrate a birthday or other event.
An extensive update to PicSay was launched this week at the iTunes App Store. The update includes support for advanced editing techniques, such as warped text and 3D plus more new emoji and filter effects. Users can adjust the position, spacing, color and alignment of fonts and text art to create a perfect design. In addition, users can now use an eyedropper tool to create a custom color for text or stickers. And the app contains a collection of typographic designs that makes it extremely easy to create eye-catching pictures and posters.
PicSay 5.5 is Free (with in-app purchases) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photo & Video category. In addition to the library of fonts, stickers and filters that come with the app, users can purchase packs of high-end effects such as neon stickers and punk-themed filters.
