What's New in Version 2.10
Did Not want to Purchase at first.
So while rummaging through the App Store I landed on PicLab. Looked cool, served the functional needs I was looking for or so I thought and the price was reasonable. Until I read the reviews and it sounded like they still have some kinks to work out. Well went back in to the App Store few days later and thought I would take the chance. Purchased and trying to use. Pros: offers great features and filter options that other apps don't offer. There are a good amount of font choices and you can add your own (haven't tried yet)
Cons: Does not have Instagram size layout option, GLITCHY - oh my gosh I am taking for ever to complete one image because it does not want to select the thing I am trying to select. It is also super touchy when trying to do detail in a movement or placement. There is no line option, they have shapes but no lines. You should really take out the drawing feature. If I can not zoom in and draw then what's the point.
Overall I think the overall idea of the app is great. Maybe there is to much trying to go on all at once. They really need to work out the major bugs, glitches, frustrations before trying to charge $2.99. And at this point I really wish I could get my money back. Sorry guys good try though.
Still pixelates photos
I was happy to see the latest version of PicLab Studio saves images at a higher resolution; unfortunately, the actual quality of the rendered images is astonishingly poor. While text and other added elements are rendered in high quality, the original background photo comes out very pixelated, even when using source images that are higher resolution than the final output (12MP source vs. 6.75MP output). The resulting background appears as if it had been reduced to a very small resolution, then re-enlarged without interpolation/smoothing; it actually looks worse than the old version's 1MP maximum size. This new version also seems to have no option for exporting projects as common JPG files, instead saving only to lossless PNG format, which for the vast majority of projects will take up considerably more space without any perceptible benefit in quality. Note that neither of these problems is immediately evident when viewing on an iPhone; the pixelation issue is only noticeable when zooming in or printing, and the wasteful PNG issue will only become apparent once your photo album begins to swell in size.
Good potential, but terrible execution...
The features and functions (for a mobile based application, at least) are quite good and have the potential to give you a cool photo editing tool on the go...
But it does not work well. I guess it just has a ton of bugs. ie. when you save a project and come back to it some elements are missing or have shifted, if you want to revert to last saved (so exit and come back it) for some reason asks if you are sure because you will lose all changes when you exit but then saves everything anyway. If you layer photos the layers become white when you try to edit and you can't undo. Very slow and often crashes....just to name a few of the bugs I encountered in the past few minutes using this app, there are more that I can't recall at the moment.
Like I said, great potential, but terrible execution...
