Pictures Lab was one of the first apps in the Windows Phone Store, and therefore as the OS celebrates its 3rd year, the app is also celebrating 3 years of its existence.
The company is also sharing their birthday joy with other Windows Phone users, and are giving the app away free for a limited time.
The app features high quality filters, features and great user experience. It has lots of controllable, easy-to-use, but advanced effects like different vintage and hipster-like filters, Tilt Shift (miniature faking), HDR, Lomo, Soften, Auto Adjust, Sharpen, Comic, Bulge, B&W, Sepia, Selective Blur and many more. Dynamic previews of the effects are shown in a list, making it possible to easily pick the right one. The high quality borders are also presented in a nice preview list and can be combined with any filter and any aspect ratio. Multiple effects can also be combined.
It is also possible to crop, rotate and flip images. An enhanced picture and the EXIF data can be saved to the phone’s pictures hub or shared directly on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social networks. Later editing is also supported. The app performs the image processing on the original picture in its original resolution, thus making it also possible to print the image or use it as desktop wallpaper.
The app is normally $0.99, but can now be found free in the Windows Phone Store here.
