App Giveaway: 50 copies of Photo Effects Pro | webOS Nation

App Giveaway: 50 copies of Photo Effects Pro 317

by Derek Kessler Mon, 16 May 2011 11:25 am EDT

Thanks to HP’s now accepting hybrid Mojo/PDK apps, we’re finally getting powerful and simple apps in the App Catalog. One of those apps is a photo editor by the name of Photo Effects Pro. A full-featured follow-up to the Mojo-only Photo Effects and Photo Effects Plus, the new Pro version handles all of the image editing on the device (previous versions offloaded the processing to a server because there was no easy way to do it on webOS).

Photo Effects Pro includes a number of features, including cropping, rotating, and flipping, plus color adjustments like contrast, saturation, and ting. But it’s the effects that make it Photo Effects Pro, and in addition to standards like applying sepia tones, the app features effects like sketch, blur, pixelate, emboss, and more.

Available from the App Catalog for $2.99, Photo Effects Pro is the leading image editor for webOS. And thanks to developer Rusty Apps, we have 50 copies to give away to you, the reader.

Contest: We have 50 copies of Photo Effects Pro to give away. Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Contest ends this Sunday at midnight PST. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries won’t count. Promo codes are only valid on carriers serviced by the App Catalog, and users must be running webOS 2.1 or higher with the latest version of the App Catalog.

Having Used The Online versions (PE and PE+) I can understand how cool this give away is. Will enjoy watching this one play out.

Owner of PhotoEffects and PhotoEffects Plus since close to when they first hit the catalog.

Please I'd like this app,
Cuz clearly it's all that
It's something cool to use
To banish dem blah photo blues.

I have to echo all the "finally"'s - I'd use this much more than the White Pages.

would love this app. would be very useful

Yes, please! Enter me into the contest to win a freee copy of this fantastic application. (Being an out-of-work developer I could use a dose of free about now.)

Count me in.

yep, yep, yep! i definitely want this - i love the photo apps and want the full one!! :) woohoo! i heart my palm pre plus!

Ow yeah, I already liked the Plus version, but this looks way better! Now I can turn my friens into drag queens any minute. :)


Sign me up.

This and the new camera on the Pre3 is gonna be awesome.

This looks sweet!!!!

Throwing in my entry ... I really need an app with this functionality for my business! Thanks for your consideration.

I guess I have to upgrade my Pre- to 2.1

Yes!!! i want this

Woo hoo!! I'd love one!

I would love a copy! Looks like a really powerful tool for Webos photo editing.

I just emailed him asking about a Redeye feature down the road and he said it may be possible. I could definitely use this app w/ a promo code! Still using the old version.

Looks great!

Entering my entry. I would have multiple uses for it. Android has so many filtering and editing programs, always when we are out with the family and everyone goes for the candid picture of the kids, the android using family memebers have to throw in I can take better pictures with multiple filters. Thanks.

Hope I'm not too late, I'd like a copy of that app.

Sounds like a great app! Would love to have it, especially for free =)

I currently dont have webOS 2.1 (Sprint Pre-) but next month (fingers crossed) Ill have a Pre 3 WOOHOO. So this makes me believe I could still be one of the 50 winners. Time will tell... Best of luck to everyone else

Want a copy.

Hey, I'd love a free app, particularly one I'd find useful.

Alas, I'm ineligible along with the other Sprint users using officially-supported OS revs until/unless the vaporous Pre3 comes out.

If I win, I will save the copy for my pre-3

Guess I'm too late...

Thanks in advance

Looks like a really cool app.

UK one please :)

I want to win.

I hope I'm not too late for this one :)

I'm a long-time user of Photo Effects Plus and would dearly love to see whether Photo Effects Pro's on-device capabilities make it a better App :)


Can i haz cheeseburger?

hook me up!

I'd appreciate entry for a chance to win - thanks!

Looks great! Add me to the list!


This is awesome! would love to have this app, thanks


Me too, though I'll probably just buy it if I don't win--looks awesome!

I would love a copy of this!

looks sweet...hope get a copy

I appreciate these app giveaways but how many people here actually run webOS 2.1?
The only devices available right now that run this are the pre 2 and the veer right?

yes, please

I would like a copy. Hybrid FTW

I'm currently using Plus on my Sprint Pre. Would be awful nice to have Pro on a Pre 3 when it comes out!

i'd love a code for germany.

In for the drawing.

Your app looks great, the built-in app is waaaay too 'basic' for 2011!

Cheers from up here in the Great White North! We FINALLY have WebOS on GSM (w/o paying an arm & leg for an unlocked device)!
