PicLight App Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I am always looking for a good app that'll help me whip up a pretty edited photo. PicLight is basically a super big version of Instagram with more editing options. We'll be using the below photo as an example :)

Before

PicLight has 170+ lighting effects in four options to edit your photo: montage, light, glow & texture. I ended up doing a light & montage overlay & here is the result. The app is very easy to use & you can apply multiple layers to create the effect you want. I just made mine simple as I'd like the photo to speak for itself. You can also crop, mess with the hues/contrasts, etc. in this app.

It's not a horrible app, but I would much prefer to use my Photoshop primarily. However, I wouldn't mind whipping this up if I needed a photo edited real quick. You can definitely use this to edit your photos before posting them on Instagram ;)

After

You do need a Mac OS X 10.7 or higher to utilize this app. Pearl Mountain FB.

DISCLAIMER: I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  5. So it's not a free app then? What's the regular price? It looks like a fun app, but Instagram is free, so I will probably just stick with that.
