Nokia Creative Studio app released for Lumia phones

The software team at Nokia has released a new and free app especially (and at the moment exclusively) for owners of its Windows Phone-based Lumia devices. Techin5.com reports that the new app is called Creative Studio and is made for all of those Lumia smartphone users who like to mess around with their camera pictures.

Creative Studio allows for the use of special effects to be added to photos. One of the cooler aspects of the app is that you can actually see the changes that a particular effect will have on a picture before you make the decision to take the shot. The app even has a bar that can be placed in the middle of the shot. The "Before" shot can be seen on one side of the picture. The other side shows how the special effect will alter the picture when it is finally taken.

The app also has some "face warp" effects that can take some crazy funhouse mirror-like pictures of a person's head. Finally, Creative Studio allows Lumia owners to take panoramic photos by having the user take pictures of a scene. The app then stitches the images into one panoramic photo. There's no word yet if Creative Studio will be released for any other Windows Phone devices in the future.

Its a good app, I like the live previews of both live camera view effects (funny mirrors, warping etc.) along with when adding effects to static pics you see the effect in real time with a nice slider you can move to show before/after on the fly.

I use Thumba photo editor (paid for) which does seem to offer a larger range of effects and control, but doesn't do the live camera stuff and isn't free (there is a trial).

All in all a good app, and better for being free, nice one Nokia!

Downloaded and trying the app out. So far not bad. It even integrates with Camera app and registers it as an app so you can manage things directly from there.

I really feel like switching from an iPhone 3GS to a Lumia 900 when it comes out, it really does look very promising and would love to have my PC, Xbox and Windows Phone sharing the same stuff seemlessly.

The OS is great, and the integration is awesome. I'm hoping the Lumia comes to Verizon myself. Lol

I managed to pick up a Lumia 800 on the cheap. It is a great phone and the OS is so smooth. It sorely lacks decent applications though.

There is a few times I've been searching for an app to find that it just doesn't exist on the platform yet. It's a damn shame and Microsoft needs to do more to entice Dev's over to the platform.
