Pixlr Gets Its First Major Interface Lift Since Release, Now Looks Prettier While Making Your Photos Pretty

Since its release in 2012, Pixlr has received several updates and tweaks, but no major changes to its interface. That left the app looking like a Gingerbread relic on my and many other users' modern smartphones with their material looks and spiffy animations. For an app that specializes in making things look prettier, Pixlr wasn't fulfilling its own end of the bargain. Take a look at what Pixlr was like before today:

Snapseed Updated To v2.1 With Support For RAW Photo Editing [APK Download]

A number of Android phones can capture RAW photos now, but editing them on Android is tricky. There are a few apps that do it, but they're clunky or as in the case of Lightroom, cost money. Now Google's free Snapseed editor has been updated to v2.1 with RAW editing tools. We've got the APK on APK Mirror if you want to take it for a spin.

Aviary Photo Editor Updated With Premium Option—$1.99 For 30-Day Access To All Filters And Effects

Aviary is one of the more popular photo editors on Android. In the past there were various effect packs available for purchase, but in the latest update Aviary has added a premium upgrade. It's a little strange, though. For $1.99 you get access to all the effects, filters, stickers, and so on, but only for 30 days.

Overam Circles Around Your Photos, Blurs The Lines Of Editing, And Lands Square In The Play Store

Here's a surprise for you. For once we're not talking about a photo editing app that has come to Android after being available on iOS for months or worse yet, years. How novel! Overam is the name of said app and it's being released on Android first (maybe only?).

While Overam does offer the usual panoply of filters, its selling point is the usage of geometric shapes to create a disconnect between two parts of the image and highlight the one you want. You start with one of 200+ geometric shapes ranging from the simple to the most complex, pick one of the 5 different blur effects included, add a filter if you want to (including dual filters that only apply to part of the image), and you can save your photo locally, share it, or go on to make another edit on top of it.

Snapseed Hits Version 2.0 With New Tools, Non-destructive Editing, Design Refresh

Google's Snapseed photo editor is receiving a big bump to version 2.0, aiming to give users "the precision and control of professional photo editing software."

With the new version number comes a new product icon and a refreshed design that cuts out the gradients, textures, and holo action bar of Snapseed's past.

The new design puts a simple histogram under your photo, and conceals the app's tools and filters under an unassuming floating action button. The actual editing screen has been similarly refreshed, with familiar editing gestures intact.

The 2.0 update isn't just skin-deep though. With the new Snapseed, users can enjoy non-destructive editing, so re-editing or undoing changes doesn't mean starting from scratch.

Instagram Introduces Five New Filters, The Only Ones To Appear Since 2012

Do you remember the end of 2012? Android still ran Jelly Bean (no make that Jelly Bean, or was it Jelly Bean?). A 5.5-inch screen was as big as phone's got, and the mere promise of the Pebble had people virtually throwing money at their screens. Then in December, Instagram introduced a couple of new filters into its mobile app.

Two years later, devices are getting updated to Lollipop, a 5.5-inch screen is dangerously close to being considered average, the Pebble is looking a little dated next to the new kid on the block, and Instagram has finally introduced five more filters.

Abstract Photo Editing App 'Fragment' Brings Its Artsiness To Android

There's something about our camera-equipped portable mini-computers that makes app developers look at them as the perfect platform for yet another niche photo editing app. Want to add text to your images? Here's something for that. Want cool filters? Try this on for size. Want to feel like Snoop Lion? Of course you do. Fragment doesn't even claim to make your photos better. It just makes them... different.

Fragment gives users the power to change their plain photos into abstract works of art. The developers call it prismatic art. I wikied that word, but that only turned up yet another app.

Handy Photo Version 2.0 Brings Redesigned UI, New Features, A Reset Button, On-Screen Instructions, And More

Handy Photo is a mobile photo editor that can seemingly work magic with such features as un-cropping, the ability to remove objects from a photo, and the option to apply any number of its impressive filters. We put version 1.0 of the app through its paces last year and saw a lot of promise. Now Handy Photo is making the jump to the big 2.0, and it's bringing with it a new UI.

This is a photo editor, so most of the other changes get pretty specific. We're talking about the ability to selectively adjust tones, partially apply filters, and move or scale textures.
