From there you can select an existing photo from your phone to edit, capture a brand new one directly through the app’s camera feature, produce a collage of photos or even draw in a picture of your own.
The editing tool itself is diverse and offers tons of different options for users to make their photos look more enhanced and social media ready. These options include tools to make your picture frame look more refined including the free crop, stretch, motion, color curves and more. You can also add in your favorite filters on your photo for an extra splash of color. The beautify tool is also a popular tool to make your face look flawless. Through this tool you can smooth out the wrinkles on your face, clear acne and blemished, change your skin tone, whiten teeth, remove the red-eye effect and much more. Other editing options include add-on picture frames, stickers, text, drawing with brushes and pens, masking, cut-out, lens flare and more.

They can also follow a particular user, hence making the app almost a part of the social media genre.
You can also browse and search for photos through the search option in the app. This is great to provide you with some inspiration for your next photo edit or just to simply save an aesthetic photo for your phone.
