Handy Photo 2.0

From the seasoned pro photographer to the weekend shutterbug, anyone can pick up Handy Photo and give their mobile device the editing power usually reserved for the desktop.

ADVA Soft, developers of state-of-the-art image-processing applications, today announced the release and immediate availability of Handy Photo 2.0, an update to its popular all-in-one photo editing app for iOS and Android devices. Featuring a completely redesigned user interface that is highly accessible to both skilled and novice users, Handy Photo 2.0 offers an array of professional-grade editing tools, including new selective editing features for color and tone, advanced retouching tools, more than 20 professional photo filters that can be easily adjusted as needed, partial application of filters and a variety of high-resolution textures and frames.    

Handy Photo’s Tone & Color tool enables users to make global and local tonal and color corrections to photos, adjusting an entire image’s brightness, contrast, saturation and more. With a variety of application modes, including Entire Image, Linear Gradient Mask, Elliptical Gradient Mask and Masking Brushes, tonal and color corrections can also be applied to a specific area. These selective editing features are typically found only in the most expensive and complex desktop photo editors, yet are available, lightning fast and easy to master in Handy Photo 2.0.

“Handy Photo was designed for those with a strong passion for photo editing,” explains Roman Kutelmakh, ADVA Soft’s Handy Photo product manager. “It is the ideal choice for correcting and enhancing photos from all possible angles. With Handy Photo 2.0, we’re presenting a dynamic and fun user interface that offers an artist’s palette full of professional-grade tools.
