PicsArt Improves Co-Creative Experience for its 65M+ Users With Latest iOS and Android App Update

New features allow users to showcase creativity by expanding #freetoedit tag into Facebook and sharing automatically-generated timelapse videos


San Francisco, Calif. — (May 6, 2015) — Today PicsArt , the largest mobile creative community, announced an update that enables users to collaborate on work via Facebook and generate timelapse videos that showcase their unique editing techniques. PicsArt’s community of 65 million monthly active users collaborates to create, edit, remix, and share more than 250 million images every month.  

The latest app update brings PicsArt ’s #freetoedit hashtag to Facebook . This hashtag, which allows PicsArt users to remix a tagged image with the PicsArt editor, has already proved extremely popular. Now, the community can extend the collaboration outside of the PicsArt by sharing images tagged #freetoedit to Facebook. Users can invite Facebook friends to view and edit their creations with the #freetoedit tag in posts, as well as use Facebook to cast votes for PicsArt photo competitions.  

Users can now also share more than just images -- they can share their artistic process with the rest of the world. PicsArt now makes it possible to automatically generate a timelapse video showing the steps a user took to create an image. Users simply tap the video icon to begin recording and then tap it again when finished to export the video across their network. This new form of user-generated content is one more exciting way that PicsArt inspires its users to experiment and create beautiful images. It also gives newer users an awesome resource to see what is possible with PicsArt’s suite of editing tools.  

“We believe PicsArt provides users with the best tools to express themselves and now we are giving them more ways to share that expression,” said PicsArt’s founder, Hovhannes Avoyan. “Every day our users are creating expressively heartfelt work with PicsArt’s tools. We want to make sure we are also giving them equally expressive ways to share that work.”    

PicsArt ’s latest iOS and Android app update also brings enhanced social features that make collaborating and giving feedback more immediate and fluid. A new “Open” button on images makes sharing and commenting on artwork easier than ever. PicsArt users are also able to “like” images by double-tapping them and stay updated with pop-up notifications that alert users of new work from favorite artists or collections.  

Additional updates include:

  • The ability to adjust proportions of added photos/Clipart images when inserted into the app.
  • Via the new “Open” option on images, users are able to view the comments in the photo browser and seamlessly like, share, and comment on photos.
  • Each Memebox folder is now displayed as cards in the Profile Memebox tab, enabling users to view the content in other PicsArtists’ Memebox folders.
