Product Description

Welcome to creative photo editing!

Handy Photo was designed for those with a strong passion for photo editing. The app is a perfect choice when it comes to correcting and enhancing photos from all possible angles.

Edit your photo with the Handy Photo's complete set of truly powerful tools and obtain the results that will definitely impress you and all those viewing your works of art.

* Uncrop your photos in a unique way *
The tool is called Magic not accidentally. It enables the users to uniquely uncrop photos. No other app could do it. The Magic Crop is unique for one more reason. It allows straightening a crooked horizon without sacrificing the photo’s original size.

* Let the objects in your photos come alive *
Is it possible to move the objects in your photos in just a few taps? The answer is yes when it comes to the Move Me tool. Carry the object to any other place or photo and be satisfied that it suits there to a tee.

* Perform photo retouching in the best possible way *
Remove all undesired objects and blemishes from your photos in a tap. Mobile retouching has never been so fast and easy.

* Color and tone balance your photos *
Thanks to a complete toolset for adjusting color and tone of photos, you can properly balance your images’ Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, Warmth, Shadows, Highlights, etc. levels to make the photos look vivid and natural.

* Apply stunning photo filters *
A total of more than twenty filters, namely Black and White, Bleach Bypass, Color Standout, Cross Process, Dramatic, Duotone, Fog, Glow, Golden, HDR, Halftone, Ink, Lomo, Old Photo, Polarization, Polaroid, Sepia, Sketch, Smart Contrast, Tilt Shift, Tiny Planet, Vignette, and Vintage, are always at your disposal in case you feel like changing the atmosphere of any of your photos. All they are equally amazing, easy to adjust and apply, and flexible to work with.

* Add marvelous textures *
Create the atmosphere of your photo stories yourself with the Handy Photo’s pack of terrific textures (more than 90). Apply them to enhance your photos and make them truly pop. You can select from the following groups of textures: Cloth, Clouds, Frost and Ice, Grunge, Paper, Water, Wood.
The textures are adjustable, so make some settings to the texture you have selected, apply it, and you will become even more fascinated with your photo.

* Add attention-grabbing frames *
Before showing your photo to the whole world, it’s quite important to appropriately frame it. The Handy Photo’s excellent collection of frames serves just that purpose. Put the final touches on your photos by adding the following frames to them: Carton, Film, Grunge, Photo Album, Polaroid, and Retro Photo.

3.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding app ruined by third party addon July 21, 2014
Verified Purchase
I am a staunch opponent of developers that hide third party analytics, adware or spyware code in apps if they are also charging money for them. I don't care how good the app is (and I must say this app itself is very good), however, we must send these developers a message of no support if they choose to put analytics code or anything else suspicious into their apps without disclosing that they have done so.

This app contains Flurry analytics, which is a known spyware kit. Their (Flurry's) website even admits that their main focus is to gather data on users that can be later used for marketing. I don't care what this developer might say otherwise, it is still potential spyware that is undisclosed, being installed on my device without my knowledge or consent. And the kicker is if this was not the free app of the day I would've paid money for the privilege of being violated this way. The fact that it is free on the one day I happen to be reviewing it has no bearing.

Now, the developer just might come along and say, "you can trust us we are trustworthy people and we're just a poor small developer struggling to make it it's in this big world of developers blah blah blah..." well, I have heard it all before. I don't know you and neither does anyone else and if you already start this trust relationship between us with a lie then trust is not possible. If you don't respect the users enough to disclose what you are forcing upon them when they purchase your product then you're already not trustworthy and I don't care how good your app is.

So please, show the users some respect and tell them what is in the app that they are spending their money on? You do not have the right to insert code that analyzes our private phones or devices without our consent or knowledge.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great but Auto Uninstall For Me July 21, 2014
Verified Purchase
Seems like a good app...however because, ONCE AGAIN, these dev put Flurry Analytics in a PAID app, it's an automatic UNINSTALL for me.

I don't care how great an app is...and whether it runs without the internet or not. I simply refuse to support devs that continue to invade our privacy.

Simple as that. I will pass on the faotd and be more than willing to buy it when they remove the analytics.

There's a lot of power hiding under this app's innovative GUI.

For example, it has LAYERS! Yes, you read that right: a $1.99 app that has LAYERS. Another awesome tool is the SELECTION capabilities. Very interesting, and highly useful. Between the selection capabilities and the layers, this already has the big functions of a true photo editor which, by the way, can handle up to 24MP files as long as your device can handle it.

If that hasn't gotten your attention, though, check out the RETOUCH tool. It's not 100% perfect, but it is *stunning* in what it does, and is better than 'good enough' for most uses. Plus, if you don't like the result, simply UNDO it, and then reapply the Retouch. It uses a randomized algorithm to do its work. In my Customer Images photo, you'll see the original and the result of the Retouch tool. The first time it worked, the resulting image was okay, but clearly unnatural. The second time, though, was more than acceptable.

The first thing most people are going to do is to play with the filters. To be blunt, the default filter settings are, at best, mediocre, and some are downright awful. But other than that and the Flurry Analytics, this app has a lot of use for more advanced photo editing tasks. You'll have to play with it yourself, since I'd be writing a book to cover all of them. For the price, it's a bargain!

The GUI features circular menus of varying levels, and perhaps more interesting aspect of the GUI is the extensive and intelligent use of the device's touchscreen capabilities. Instead of sliders, buttons, and so forth, it makes generous use of the screen itself. Simply touching the screen to apply, or using horizontal or vertical swipes for different purposes, and so on.

Unfortunately this app has a serious software flaw. I asked it to take a photo and then I opened it the screen showed a framework of lines but no photo. When I touched the menu button my tablet screen displayed 35 helping hands flickering and when I touched the screen it would change backgrounds. Finally my gallery would open up but 1/2 of the screen was flickering helping hands. I had to exit the app and restart. This is a serious software flaw and it is not acceptable for an APP to be released with this type of coding error.

This is a full featured photograph editing tool that can be useful for many people if it worked smoothly. I use Photoshop on the PC all the time and it is amazing what you can do to clean up photographs. This app allows you to modify and save your photos after you have fixed any issue that you may see. You can select an existing picture from a gallery, take a new photo or use the tutorial to learn how to use the app.

The tutorial takes you to YouTube to view a video on using the app. Whenever you are editing a photo the main menu button is the hand in the upper RH corner. When opened you can rotate and select the tool you want to use. If you want to close the menu then just tap the screen. When you touch a tool to use its menu open in the lower LH corner or RH corner and it can also be rotated. This concept is easy to use and very helpful. This is a beautifully designed and implemented user's interface. You can always show the original photo and compare it to the original. The app also has a built in help button on the top of the screen. The app keeps track of the changes you have made to the photo and you can also undo them or redo them.

At the present time the app needs some software editing and repair before a proper release.
