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).
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” Albert Camus
If you ask us what our favorite season of the year is, it won’t be easy to answer. Hot sunny weather, green grass, and vacation opportunities make us love summer, while New Year, Christmas and snow are the main reasons to be a winter fan. Being an allegory of new life spring gives us a breath of fresh air as well as a sense of a new beginning, decorating it with a beauty of a blossoming nature. As for autumn, we love it dearly. Need proof? How about seven reasons why we adore this season of the year at Photo Lab?..

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.

Easter is one of the brightest and best-loved holidays all over the world. We in Photo Lab team send you the best wishes and invite you all to remember some interesting facts about this day together.
Everybody knows that Easter is mostly celebrated at different times by Eastern and Western Christians. Historically, Western churches used the Gregorian Calendar to calculate the date of Easter and Eastern Orthodox churches used the Julian Calendar. Easter is also a movable holiday, meaning its date is not fixed in both calendars. This year Easter is on April 1st for Western Christians and April 8th for Orthodox.
Having users all around the globe means getting ready for both celebrations for us here at Photo Lab. And guess what? We have double Christmas as well – in December and then in January. On the one hand, there is a lot to take care of, but on the other – we’re glad to work twice as hard every time to create some stuff that will bring joy to everyone. Let this very post be the starting point of our great Easter hunt for holiday stories and, of course, new cool combos!
March 17 is the day when everyone is Irish. Photo Lab can’t miss a chance to celebrate it. Put your hat on and let’s get green together!
St. Patrick’s Day is being celebrated worldwide. Dublin has a parade that attracts hundreds of thousands of people, while in Chicago the river is dyed green for a few hours. Even Moulin Rouge in Paris is not red this day. How can we let this huge celebration pass by?

Photo Lab and the Lakhta Center have introduced the product of their special collaboration – LakhtaSun photo filters, created to make any photo bright and colorful as rainbow. How did it all start and why it’s all about sun and rainbow? Let us shed some light on that.
The Lakhta Center is located in Saint-Petersburg, which is known for its melancholic mood and monochrome landscapes. Having become the highest building in Europe (over 374 meters), the Lakhta Center offers a breathtaking panoramic view with an opportunity to watch the sun even on cloudy days, and to witness the unique circular rainbow phenomenon. This extraordinary phenomenon has become a starting point for the brand new collaboration called LakhtaSun.
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.
