Editors' Review

by   / September 23, 2012

The list of photo apps for the iPhone is very long, but Etchings stands out with an intuitive layout that can help any user turn their pictures into hand-drawn sketches. While we wish it offered a few more filters, Etchings does its job extremely well and the overall user experience is enhanced by the simple and intuitive interface.

At launch Etchings greets its user with two options: take a photo or use a picture available in their Camera roll or Photo Stream. After selecting or taking a picture, the fun begins as users can easily choose from the list of filters to make the image like a sketch. There are about eight different filters and seven texture options. Choosing a filter will apply some great effects while textures make the lines in the image more or less defined. We enjoyed using the app and especially liked its speed - it took only seconds to transform our images and the result was very good overall. You can save your images to the camera roll or easily share on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. The only downside we found was that Etchings offers few filters when compared to other photo editing apps like Instagram or even Gifture. We hope the developers will add more filters with future updates.

Despite the smaller number of filters, we found the inexpensive Etchings to be fun to use and we saved it among our favorites.
