Facebook new iOS app gains new photo tools

Again, most of the new photo-editing interface should now be available to users of the Facebook app for iOS; these features will be arriving to Android soon.


Facebook is incorporating its entire Sticker catalogue into its new photo-editing feature, allowing its users to pose with HamCat, Power Rangers, and the ever-popular Pusheen in their picture uploads.

All you need to do is tap the Photos button present on your home screen, select the photo you wish to upload, and swipe across the photo and you should be able to add instant filters, just the way things work on Snapchat.

If Facebook really wants to get out in front of the likes of Snapchat on messaging among millennials it needs to come up with something new, but like with Google as well, companies that become huge corporate monoliths often lose the urge to seriously innovate. Since then, Facebook has been trying hard to one-up Snapchat in its own game with the goal of attracting the teen demographic that has flocked to Snapchat as their parents begin to take over Facebook. That means swipeable filters, text overlays, and, of course, stickers, making it possible to produce nearly every form of whimsy and hilarity using nothing but some regular-looking photos and a sense of humor. We can already see that many users have tried to add a new story, only for them to be deleted, and so we can understand their frustration.

Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB)’s stock on 26 June traded at beginning with a price of $88.12 and when day-trade ended the stock finally increased 0.03% to end at $88.01. Facebook offers seven image filters – Auto, Snow, Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Vintage.

The platform says filters are available in the form of a vertical white line across a photo, which can be swiped left or right to preview effects instantly.


This can be used to call up the photo editor menu, which houses the options for filters, tagging friends, crop tools, applying text and adding stickers.
