Finding suitable applications for altering photos on a smartphone can be difficult. Photo Art Studio, while feature rich, fails to perform its functions and is difficult to use.
Download and installation of Photo Art Studio completed quickly and without any user intervention needed. The program started up seamlessly and did not require any sign-in information to use. The menu is well designed, although there are no tutorials or user instructions. Moving to the photo editing part of the program is easy to figure out due to the large main buttons. The next screen allows the user to select a layout where different pictures can go. Photos can either be selected from the phone's memory or taken directly with the camera. Unfortunately, the program shut down during some camera operations and when we attempted to edit existing photos. After the program restarted, the photos and setup had to be reselected, which was unfortunate.
While the application has a number of useful options, the bugs and shutdowns make Photo Art Studio a poor option for photo editing on a smartphone.
