PicsArt Announces Edit gifs, Transforming The Editing Process Into Part of the Art and Providing a New Way to Showcase How Beautiful Work is Created


Powerful new tool suite further empowers creatives to make incredibly beautiful imagery and establishes PicsArt as the premier destination for over 65 million mobile creatives every month


San Francisco, Calif. [October 6, 2015]– PicsArt, a leader in the mobile creative content space, announced today a series of new features, including edit gifs, a new tool that transforms a user’s edits into an animated step-by-step gif showcasing how their creations were made. PicsArt already provides its users with a desktop-grade tool suite to create amazing works via mobile, now the company wants to expose the effort behind those creations with this new feature– a first for this mobile creative platform.


PicsArt initially created this feature to help drawers showcase their technique and is now expanding the feature to both photo edits and draw while adding in the gif export functionality. Edit gifs is an amazing collaborative tool allowing users to see how artwork comes to life. Through this new feature, artists simply record their design process as it happens and then share with PicsArt’s global community.


Sequoia-backed PicsArt is one of the biggest breakout mobile stories of the year. With a rapidly growing community resulting from more than 250 million installs, the startup continues its push to expand on a global scale, providing an elevated tool suite to design and create images to be shared around the world. PicsArt moves past simple capture and share features and has instead chosen to focus on creation and discovery to allow people to use the platform to create, inspire and grow.


“We’ve seen that our global community wants a more robust experience than just simply capturing and sharing content,” said Hovhannes Avoyan, CEO of PicsArt. “They want to not only create, but they want to share the process of creation. Collaborative content creation is the next frontier.”


PicsArt will also be offering users additional new tools to complement the Edit gifs feature.


-Full-HD Template in Draw: To eliminate empty wasted space in a photo and allow for exported videos to automatically appear in full screen.

-Lens Flares + Perspective: Advanced tools to provide the best hue for each image and correcting perspective in photos to produce quality images.

-New Trending Effects: Achieve a retro, sunny or geometric effects to transform photos into works of art. Or, polish a photo with the crips effect to increase contrast, clarity, and sharpness of the shot.

=Before/After Icon: Exclusive to this platform, allows users to simultaneously view the original image while making edits.


Edit gifs will roll out in the coming month. To explore PicsArt’s latest tools and features, download the app today on the  App Store, Google Play, or Windows. To learn more, go to
