New iOS Photography App – Handy Photo Free

ADVA Soft today announces Handy Photo Free, a free version of its popular all-in-one photo editing app for iOS and Android devices. Handy Photo Free presents a modified selection of the app’s most powerful features, enabling users to both apply a wide range of edits to their photos and test the effects of the standard edition’s full capabilities. Visit the ADVA Soft booth in the show’s Appalooza section to participate in a one-on-one demo of Handy Photo’s multiple editions.

Handy Photo has quickly become a top choice for passionate photo editors, with its global and local tonal and color corrections, smart objects extraction and moving, magic cropping and 100% size image editing. With Handy Photo Free, users can access many of the app’s core functions, while testing out some of its most powerful and unique tools.

For desktop photo editors, Handy Photo’s upcoming compatibility with Leap Motion’s advanced gestural controller will open a new world of uninhibited creative control to casual and professional photographers alike. With the wave of a hand, users will be able to transform their images to suit their artistic visions and edit with precision and fluidity.

“We have designed Handy Photo to continually evolve,” explains Maksym Davydov, president of ADVA Soft. “Rather than limit our users’ creativity by presenting them with a single set of options, we want to give them the chance to experience Handy Photo’s professional-grade capabilities a multitude of ways. We are very excited to show Macworld/iWorld attendees just how far Handy Photo can take their images, no matter how they wish to use its wide range of tools.”
