At the bottom of the screen is where the editing options lie, split into effects, frames, canvas and paint. The paint menu can also be pulled in from the left hand side. When you choose an effect you'll get an option to customise further, for example, if you choose the tradition effect, you can amend the colour, detail, brightness and contrast using sliding scales. The borders and canvases don't allow any further editing. The paint option is strange and it can't really be used to create anything to enhance your photos, it's more likely to appeal to kids. The app would be just as good, if not better, without it.
Below are examples of each effect, border and canvas, as well as three pictures using the random button.
