PicsArt – Photo Studio now available for Windows 10 and Mobile

We're not exactly sure when this update happened but according to one tipster PicsArt just got updated to a universal (UWP) app for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile.

We can confirm that version 2.7 is now in the Store and runs beautifully on our Lumia 950 and full desktop PC, with a snazzy new layout. In fact, it looks simply fantastic on our mobile version due to the bright colors and clean minimalist design.

We reviewed PicsArt last year for our Hidden Gems campaign and came away impressed with its design and abilities. In case you are not familiar, here is the app description:

"Creativity is more than just a photo filter—PicsArt provides you with everything you need to make amazing photo edits, artistic camera shoots, photo collages, create digital drawings, and communicate with other creatives who have joined our mission to beautify the world. 250 million people have already downloaded this free app for powerful image editing and photo montages, using hundreds of tools and effects that you can find only in professional photo editing programs. PicsArt inspires you to create beautiful images anytime, anywhere. Transform your photos into works of art and let the world discover them!"

Some of the main features include:

  • A global community of creatives
  • Hundreds of photo editing tools
  • Customizable filters and effects
  • Text, sticker, and image overlays
  • Collage maker
  • Photo camera
  • Drawing and painting tools with layers
  • Advanced artistic brushes

Not only are we thrilled to see this update (which is hopefully new, sorry if it's old), but we are stoked about trying it out across our various Windows 10 devices.

PicsArt is completely free to use without limitation, but you can buy extra add-ons via in-app purchases.
