Picsart is an app that allows the user to edit and customize photos. It was originally designed for Windows phones, but now it can be used on computers that run Windows 8 or Windows 10. In order to begin using Picsart, the user needs to choose a photo that he or she wishes to edit. These photos may be chosen from the user's personal gallery or imported from social media sites like Facebook.

Once an image has been chosen, it can be edited in a variety of ways. Picsart comes with the standard editing tools, but it also features many new ones that are unique to this app. Additionally, there are several filters, and some of those can even be customized. Picsart has a collage feature as well, which many users are rely on as a stylish way of showcasing their work, comparing different photos, or simply compiling several of their favorite images.

Picsart is well-loved among the artistic community because it allows its users to draw and paint directly on the photo. Those who prefer not to modify their photos in this way can still benefit from these features because they offer them the ability to highlight, or draw attention to a smaller portion of the photo, that otherwise might go unnoticed. There are also various overlays in the form of stickers, text, and pre-made artwork that can be used to accent a photo.

Another great aspect of Picsart that really sets it apart is that it is also a photo sharing app. After users finish making their edits they can share their photos with their friends or the entire world if they wish. Picsart can even be used as a collaborative tool. All a person has to do if they want to see what someone else might add to their photo is post the image with #freetoedit.
