Phototastic is a feature rich photo editor for your Windows Phone that is primarily focused on collages but has some rather nifty effects filters and editing tools to help make your photos stand out.
The Windows Phone photography app was recently updated to version 2.4 and gets a refresh on the user interface, changeable collage aspect ratios, text options and a ton of new collage templates.
Old version of Phototastic
While the old user interface wasn't bad, the new user interface is a lot cleaner. Your main page has options to create a collage, add frames to photos, design Facebook collages, and create collages sized for your Windows Phone lockscreen.
Phototastic has nearly 150 collages that can handle from one to twenty five photos. Images can be rotated, flipped and over thirty effects filters are available to give your pictures that unique feel. You also have the ability to add text to your images and a wide assortment of aspect ratios including a Facebook ratio suited for creating a cover image for your Facebook page.
New version of Phototastic
Images for your collages can be pulled from your Pictures Hub or captured with an in-app camera application. The Phototastic camera app has a burst mode with self-timer that can be set to take multiple photos and a single shot mode.
Phototastic was already a quality photo app for your Windows Phone and the update builds upon that foundation. There are two versions of Phototastic available for Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices. Even if you don't mess around with Facebook, the Facebook aspect ratio can come in handy for panoramic edits.
Phototastic Free (left QR Code) has a few feature limitations and can be found here in the Windows Phone Store. Phototastic is running $1.99 with a free trial (right QR Code) that can be found here in the Store. Take note... the update is live for the paid version of Phototastic. The version 2.4 update for Phototastic Free should be live shortly.
