Best PicsArt Effects For Editing

One of the best ways to create PicsArt effects is to add filters. There are over 10 categories of filters with so many filters to choose from. Choose from simple color edits to alter the image to look like an oil painting. Try the abstract photo filter to add various distortions making the image look pixelated. Add a blur effect with over six different blurring options.

If the filter you added is too strong you can double-tap on the filter and slider options will appear under the image and you’ll be able to slide right (increase) or left (decrease) the filter strength. Under the slider, you’ll see that there are options to change the filter color by switching from normal to multiply, color burn. Keep sliding right to see more options.

To isolate a specific area or person where you do not want the filter present tap on the erase button on the top. Then with your finger, you can brush the areas that you would like to remove the filter. Tap on the eraser button to decrease the size, opacity, and hardness. If a person is in your photo you can tap on the person tool and the app remove the filter for that area. This is a great way to create blurry backgrounds in photos. Tap “apply” when you are satisfied with the filter edits. To add a filter on top of the last filter tap on filter again and add a new filter. By doing this you can create some very creative images.

Beautify Your Selfie

Do your selfies need a little touch-up? The PicsArt editing app is a great way to beautify your self-portraits. If you need to get rid of a blemish or smooth out your skin this feature is perfect for you. There are many options to naturally improve the beauty of the subject. The menu options are auto, smooth, face fix, blemish fix, skin tone, hair color, detail, eye color, teeth whiten, reshape, and red-eye. Tap on each filter to brush on the filter. You can also control the amount of filter strength with the slider. Lastly, tap “apply” to add the edits to your image.

How to Use and Create Stickers in PicsArt

Add a sticker to your image to add excitement to a story. Tap on the sticker icon to choose from hashtag list for trending stickers or tap in the search option to find a related sticker.

How to Share and Save a Photo

The last step to creating the best PicsArt effects is to share and save your pictures. After you have applied the filters tap on the “next” button on the top right corner. This will lead you to the “share and save” menu. In the center, you have the option to save the photo to your PicsArt profile. To save the image on your phone tap save. Then you can choose to send the photo to friends. Next, you can save your PicsArt settings to edit again with the “Upload Privately” option. This will save your image in the app for continuous editing. The one I recommend most is the download photo option. This feature allows you to save it quickly to Instagram, or send through text. You can also tap on the button to save it to your photos. I prefer to save the image to my photos and then upload them to social media.
