Wow, that was quick. Meaning 2018, that came and went at the speed of sound. It’s only now we’ve realized that there was a lot of news and we simply didn’t have time to share it in a proper way. So this post is about everything you won’t find scrolling down our blog (apart from the things that are truly worth mentioning twice).
Right from the moment Shawn Mendes announced his third self-named album, the album’s cover has been the center of discussions on where the inspiration for the artwork came from. All because the artwork reminds of one of the effects inside the Photo Lab app. And the truth is our app became an important part of the story in the very beginning, when one amazing fan of one YouTube billionaire (in views currency) created a fan art with our ‘Inner Bloom’ effect.

We are happy to announce that one of the most anticipated crypto projects of the year 2018 – CryptoPicture, has just gone public. You would ask what’s in it for Photo Lab, but actually, our team has got more reasons to be excited than any other team. First of all Photo Lab got its spot in the picture during presale event – you can see our logo among the purchased slots. Besides (and it makes us extremely proud) the app’s founder Victor Sazhin is actually the person behind this original initiative in crypto industry.
So what is CryptoPicture? It is not just a promising project with a creative and smart team working on it, but also the world’s first decentralized advertising space regulated by Ethereum smart contract. It is a 1 million px canvas, divided into predefined blocks set for sale. We can go on and on talking about the project, but like a saying goes the Picture is worth a thousand words, so feel free to read the whole story on the project’s page.
We have high hopes for CryptoPicture and if everything goes as expected (and risk is always involved when dealing with projects like this) it’s gonna be one of the most valuable digital picture in history. So good luck to CryptoPicture and everyone involved in bringing it to life!
The most wonderful time of the year is here. While you’re getting ready to celebrate and enjoy the festive atmosphere of the Winter Holidays (well, at least we’re sure you know how to create the most unique Christmas cards, don’t you?), we’re using this opportunity to remember 2017 and to say that you, our amazing users, made it special!
We’re so lucky to have you as Photo Lab app users (and our blog readers) and look forward to bringing even more joy with our app to you in the upcoming year.
It’s been just one week since Google’s announcement and we are proud to share our new achievements with you. On December 07 Apple also revealed 2017’s most popular apps, games, music, books and more. Among many other first-rate apps and developers, Photo lab has got noticed in the following categories and countries:
Of course, it’s a great pleasure to know that our tech-based efforts are rewarded. And, boy, we can tell you that no one works harder than our R&D team – long days and even some sleepless nights, to roll out those ‘smart’ features you love the most on time and fully-functioning.
But at the same time, it is a new responsibility we are glad to take on ourselves – we have to be better and continue surprising you on the course of a year (and years to come). We consider it as a challenge that should motivate us to do an even better job.

Had we seen this post earlier our only answer to this epic question would have been: “Who sleeps on Halloween night and with such a mask from #PhotoLab on?” And by the way, the answer is still the same because whoever is behind Robert’s Instagram account won big.
Almost 1.5 million likes the #CreepySmileMakeup got over week make it not only the most successful post in Photo Lab’s history but also the most likable Robert’s Instagram pic ever! Can you believe this? We could not either at first. But on second thought why not? This effect is Halloween-scary, it’s funny and it’s smiling at you with that creepy smile nobody can resist.
Yes, we know Halloween 2017 is over, but whenever you are in a mood to frighten your friends to death, feel free to find this mask here.
PS: Do you happen to know the person behind RDJ’s Instagram and Facebook? Anyone? Please, contact us if you do. 📧
Hey! We’ve just launched our first one-of-a-kind effect that turns a photo into a small video clip, using our latest AI developments. It is exclusively available on iOS on the threshold of Apple’s big announcement and is coming to all Android devices very soon.
Well, it’s happening: version 3.0 is here, all new and shiny. As the caption says it’s not yet another revision. The new release brings more machine learning editing features, allows users to combine effects, and shifts the spotlight on users and their creativity with its new social feed.
Photo Lab has always been known for its numerous photo effects, impressive in their variety and design. Through the years the app has come to solve many tasks, from adding a simple border to a picture to complicated art style transfer or instant background replacement or creating Photoshop-like edits, all powered by in-house artificial intelligence algorithms. However, no matter how inventive the effects are, only one effect could be applied at a time. Which was a serious limitation. Now we are bringing new approach to the app’s content and shifting the spotlight on you, our users.
…This time in Pakistan and Jordan. Photo Lab has been #1 in App Store since Thursday last week and is hitting top 10 in Google Play now.
We didn’t see that coming. As with India earlier this Summer it happened overnight, and the number of downloads is still growing. However, unlike their neighbors, users from Pakistan have fallen for the whole idea of the effects combinations rather than one particular effect. At least this is as we see it.
Our understanding is it’s a word-of-mouth to blame. And users we questioned about this out-of-the-blue boost of activity confirm, saying that Photo Lab has instantly become as popular as the Prisma app once was. Total craze!
