CNET Editors' review

FX Photo Studio is a stripped-down but very easy-to-use photo editing tool with a number of fun features and a level of polish you don't often see in free iOS editors. While the core functionality is to add special effects to your photos, there are quite a few things you can do, including adding text, highlighting colors, adjusting coloring and saturation, and cropping or rotating the image within a frame. The app also works to make images Instagram-ready with square-preset formatting while taking new photos.

Nothing FX Photo Studio does is particularly new. Cropping images, rotating those images, swapping out color profiles, and adding text is all common enough in photo editors. However, when combined with the sleek design of the app, easy-to-use functions, and some very cool flares like the onscreen photo lens (that acts as a mirror) on the home screen, this app stands out from the pack. Everything is just so straightforward and the resulting effects look professional and high quality -- things you'd be happy to share on your social media accounts.

While not the most feature-rich app on the App Store, FX Photo Studio is an easy-to-use, attractive, and ultimately very sleek photo editing tool that we had quite a bit of fun using. If you are looking for an app that offers basic functionality in an easy-to-use package, check out FX Photo Studio.

    "Beautiful and fun"

    January 13, 2011  |   By Jermjerome

    Version: FX Photo Studio 2.6.0

    Pros

    FX Photo Studio offers 181 effects, more than any other photo editing application. There are some lomo, vintage, art effects which will allow you to experiment with the photos to make them better and also to have a lot of fun during the process.

    Cons

    Ok, there are few cheesy effects too, but if you don't like some of them, there is an option to hide effects you dislike. Yo can also add to Favorites those effects you find very cool.

    Summary

    One more important thing I have to mention about FX Photo Studio is the possibility to mix different effects. For example, you apply 3-4 different effects on an image, and If you find the result great, you can save the combination of effects you've used as presets.
    I gave this app 5 stars, but I still hope it will get even better. For example, it would be great to see the masking option and also old school square frames in the update.
    FX Photo Studio allows you to be very creative and to have a lot of fun while experimenting with images. An extraordinary app for all you guys who love photography and see the life in bright colors.
