Prisma is the latest free photo-editing application that everyone is talking about. It was released two months ago by a Russian guy called Alexey Moiseenkov and it can be installed on Android and iOS devices.
People use it to transform their ordinary pictures into beautiful works of art, as the application has many modern art filters and after obtaining the desired artistic effect, users are sharing the results on social media networks. Since Prisma isn’t available on Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile devices, the best alternative for users of these operating systems is Vinci.
Vinci can be downloaded from the Windows Store and it’s a free artsy photo app created by Russian social site VK. It was firstly released for iOS and Android (on July 28) and now it can be installed on Windows mobile devices, as the application offers the same features across all three supported platforms.
Vinci also gets help from “neural networks” and artificial intelligence, using dozens of inspiring filters to edit photos instantly, as it takes only 2 seconds per filter to apply, compared to Prisma on an iPhone 6S running on iOS that takes between 4 and 9 seconds per filter.
Unfortunately, Vince doesn’t have gradients for the filters, and from the press release, “New filters are already being tested and will be added automatically to the application. The project’s developers are working on an easy and quick tool for automatic photo enhance.” This means that the independent developers that are behind this application are doing their best to make Vinci more appreciated than Prisma.
The application was released for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile on August 12, and users who downloaded it “can experiment 20 different filters – some of them slightly retouch your photos, others transform the pictures into different art styles or turn images into something beyond recognition. The app functionality is equal to the Vinci app for iOS and Android launched on July 28. Now Vinci takes the first place in top popular apps in Russia’s App Store.”
