#NewProfilePic’s Royal Connections

We had no idea about it for some time but look who is sporting our hottest profile picture design (so far) on his Instagram account? 👑

Yep, believe your own eyes, we have Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (popularly known as Fazza) among our #NewProfilePic users. He has been the Crown Prince of Dubai since 2008 according to Wikipedia.

A person of so many talents definitely can’t be wrong, right? As those millions of users who literally fell for this effect earlier in May this year.

Sure your attachment to this very yellowish profile pic design is totally understandable, it belongs to our personal faves too. However rumor has it we update the range of styles often. Which is not a rumor by the way and we release new arrivals on Fridays.

How about making it a habit to meet you there every week? 😉

Photo Lab: answering the questions from Ukrainian users

The position of the Photo Lab app in Ukraine has skyrocketed (#1 at the very moment) in the last two days on both the App Store and Google Play Store. All thanks to the flag-based combo a lot of Ukrainians and their supporters use to express the sense of unity and aspiration for peace.

As the interest grows, a great number of questions have been hitting our support inbox regarding the origin of the company and app behavior. We’d like to spread the light on most of them.

A note for our English-speaking users: the rest of the text in this post is written in Russian. Just because the users it’s targeted at are very much likely to speak Russian and we’d like to do our best to lessen their concerns and bring a bit more calm in this time of hardship.

Thank you for your understanding 🙏
