Autumn: 7 reasons to adore this season with Photo Lab

“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?..

The chronicle behind Shawn Mendes album cover

Guess what can happen when you edit a photo of your idol with Photo Lab? Sometimes your creation becomes a cover art for his new album!

Get Photo Lab for iOS & Android

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.

Photo Lab is a part of the most expensive digital picture

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.

CryptoPicture launch

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!

Have a very joyful Easter with Photo Lab!

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.

Have a very joyful Easter with Photo Lab!

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!

Keep sunlight in your pocket with Photo Lab & LakhtaSun

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.

Keep sunlight in your pocket with Photo Lab & LakhtaSun

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.

Robert Downey Jr.’s Halloween Smashing Success with Photo Lab

“I’m Tony Stark. I build neat stuff, got a great girl, occasionally save the world. So why can’t I sleep?”

Robert Downey Jr's smashing success with Photo Lab effect

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. 📧
