HTC is continuing to refine their HTC One for Windows, which saw its release on AT&T this past weekend (T-Mobile is still in limbo on their release). Today's update brings a nice update to HTC Photo Edit, which not only lets users do some basic photo chopping, but adds neat effects using the One's Duo Camera.
Version 2.0 is now on the Store, and there are numerous refinements to the app, including some subtle UI changes like the slider for the selective U-Focus feature. Additionally, a new effect called 'Seasons' has been added, and it is quite clever.
Using Seasons, users can add Sakura, Dandelion, Maple Leaf or Snow to photos. The effects are live, so that it can simulate dandelion seeds, maple leaves or snow falling and blowing over your subject (see the embedded video in this article).
Photos can then be saved as still images or MP4 video files for an animated effect. There are likely a few other changes and tweaks made to HTC Photo Edit, which we are still sifting through – if you see any others, let us know in comments.
HTC has been pretty decent about updating their system apps for the HTC One, including numerous tweaks to their Dot View case app. Hopefully an update to their Camera app will come down the pike, offering new features and improvements there as well.
Thanks, microhaxo-wp, for the tip!
