creative studio

Earlier last week, the Nokia Creative Studio 6.0 update has become available for download at the Windows Phone Store. It has a completely redesigned interface with some new features. The bad news, as some of you have discovered, is that the update is missing Color Pop and Red-eye reduction. Nevertheless, we've spent some time with the updated Creative Studio. Read along to see how you can improve your images using the app.

Imaging is a pretty big deal on Windows Phone, especially on the Lumia line which features some of the best cameras around. Nokia’s Creative Studio suite has some really great photo editing options, filters and fun things like color-pop to make the most of your camera.

Now, the imaging team is detailing the changes in 6.0 of the app, which is due to launch with the Lumia 930 in the coming weeks. That app will also be released for all Lumia owners to leverage the new options.

Let’s see what’s new.

Another morning and another crop of app updates.

This morning we only have four (so far), but we’re sure that will change as the day goes on. Let’s get these four out of the way, since they’re some pretty big apps or games for your Windows Phone, including Flixster finally (finally!) getting UltraViolet support for Windows Phone 8.

Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Photo Editors
Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Photo Editors

As someone who has spent a lot of time behind a camera, it's nice to see our Windows Phone cameras and photography apps improve over the years. The hardware has well passed the novelty stage back when VGA was the only capture resolution and are now easily capable of taking noteworthy images.  Our Windows Phone cameras have become very handy and capable means to capture the moment.

The Windows Phone apps supporting our cameras have equally improved significantly from apps that simple slap creative filters on your images to apps that have Photoshop-like capabilities to not only add filters but also to make exposure adjustments and other quality control edits.  

We picked four Windows Phone photo editing apps in this week's roundup that go beyond special effects and filters to help us make the most of our cameras and the images they capture.

If we had to name one of our top apps, at least on a Nokia Windows Phone, Creative Studio would be up there. That’s because we take a lot of pics with our Lumia, so it makes sense we’d want to tidy up things a bit and maybe even play around with some different effects.

Today, Creative Studio received a minor update from 5.0.7.6 to 5.0.8.67 and as far as we can tell, there is no discernable difference in terms of features, but it we had to guess Nokia fixed or tweaked something that was causing some issues.

Creative Studio is a very nice photo editing app exclusive to the Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices. Creative Studio was updated today to version 5.0 and adds four new editing tools to the mix.

You have two new features to blur images, Focus Object and Radial/Tilt Shift. These features allow you to select areas of your photos to keep in focus and the areas you want to blur.

Nokia has just begun rolling out an update for their Creative Studio app for editing your photos. The other day we gave you a tutorial on how to make the best of the app, as it’s quite handy for quickly touching up your images (and not downscaling their size).

Version 4.1.2.4 is now trickling out, updated from 4.0.16.13, though it may take awhile to hit the servers (only a few of our staff were able to see the update, so this is very fresh).

A common complaint with the Nokia Lumia 920 is that of "soft" photos--both in terms of sharpness and colors. While we can argue the merits and reasons for such behavior, did you know you can easily fix them with just a few seconds and barely any effort? The key is to use Nokia's homegrown, free and surprisingly robust photo editor, Creative Studio.

But how does it work and what are the best tips? Read ahead and we'll show you how to make the most of it.

Another non-detailed update has hit the Windows Phone Marketplace. The other day similar updates hit Photosynth and the Dark Knight Rises apps. Today, it's the Nokia Creative Studio app.

There really isn't anything noticeable beyond the change in the version display (version 1.2 to version 1.3) and it is likely that the update makes a few under the hood adjustments that improves performance.

For those not familiar with Creative Studio, it is available on all Nokia Lumia Windows Phones and is a basic photo editing app. You can take and edit photographs through Creative Studios, edit existing photos from your Pictures Hub and create panorama images. Creative Studios has special effects, filters and your basic editing tools (crop, contrast, exposure, etc.) that you can apply to your photos.

You can find Creative Studios on your Nokia Lumia Windows Phone from the Marketplace app under the Nokia Collection.

Thanks, ej lee, for the tip!

Windows Phone Photo Panorama Round-up

With the recent release of Microsoft's Photosynth to the Windows Phone Marketplace, there's really no excuse for anyone not to capture decent panoramic images. Photosynth joins a nice collection of in-house panorama apps and a decent third party app. But how do these panorama tools measure up against one another?

We took our handy-dandy tripod out to see if one shined brighter than the other. There's really not a bad panorama app in the lot but a few lined up a little better than others.

Nokia has released Creative Studio for Windows Phone, available to all Lumia handset owners. This app is a simple (but free) photo editing suite that enables users to alter and then share photos taken with the smartphone. A number of effects, filters and tools are available to turn that snap shot into a more visually appealing photo.

What's also neat is the patented technology used in the app which allows live, in-camera effects to be active so users are able to see what the end result would be without taking the shot. As well as this, we also have a panorama feature, which many desire as built-in functionality. Hopefully, with the recent news of said functionality coming to Lumia handsets, we shouldn't need to rely on an app soon enough.

You can download Creative Studio on your Lumia Windows Phone.
