Established in 2011, Picfx has been part of the iPhone photography community for over 6 years. During this time we have seen many advances in the iPhone camera hardware, commanding many powerful new apps to satisfy the growing number of niches within iPhone photography.

With this update we’ve refined our feature set and focussed on our vision for a highly functional, simple, effective tool for editing your photos and videos.

Besides adding new features we also announce the removal of all overlay filters and textures. Specifically Bokeh, Space, Textures, Grunge, Frames, Scratches & Light leaks. For these needs we invite you to try an alternate texture based Photo App in the App Store.

Tap the photo and then tap “Edit” in the top right, after that tap the three dots in a circle and select Picfx. If you decide you want to remove the Picfx filter later you can revert the changes and go back to the original photo.

Included in this update are three new effects, PFX 27, PFX 28 and PFX 41, great for those gloomy winter photos.


Picfx 7th Top Paid App

Picfx 7th in app store

Picfx suddenly shot up the iTunes charts in the US this week, at one point making it the 7th Top Paid app on the App Store!  This was a nice surprise, I think the highest it had been before was around 15th – which we were very happy with at the time but now we have a new record. One day it will reach the top spot!
