If you want to take pictures with your smartphone and quickly share beautiful photos, you need effective tools for image editing. DW Digital is testing the most popular apps. This week: "Glitch Photo Editor".
Glitch Photo Editor adds hip "glitch" effects to snapshots. There are a lot of similar applications on the market - but only few deliver convincing results. In our opinion the results of "Glitch Photo Editor" is one of the rare examples that don't disappoint.
The app has a rather minimalistic user interface: one menu for default settings, one for glitch effects, and additionally a small selection of filters, stickers and frames. Effects and filters are controlled by a slider.
But that's about it. There's neither an "undo" function nor can you enlarge photos while editing them.
The app's strength lies in its effects and filters - they produce very good looking results. Perspective distortions, TV glitches or the look of old web pages - the application does everything convincingly. The fact that the results can be exported in high resolution makes for a rather convincing package.
For the full version you have pay 9.99 per year - whether this is justified, we cannot say with certainty. That depends on whether the developers regularly deliver convincing updates.
