The ultimate picture effects app! wrote: "a Swiss Army knife of photo tweaks". 
If you like to make beautiful photos, then this app is a perfect addition to your phone’s toolset. Pictures Lab provides you with thousands of different modifications for your photos and has a camera functionality with superior features like face detection auto focus, steady mode and much more. It's also integrated as a Lens.
Pictures Lab is the original with high quality filters, features and great user experience. It's fast and responsive and you quickly get your job done with just a few moves. Often been copied, but never reached. "a must-have for WP devices ... the program provides a set of amazing effects and tweaks for your photos" : "Pictures Lab offers a ton of effects for your money."
Microsoft uses Pictures Lab in its presentations as a "delightful app" which "Looks and feels like an integral part of Windows Phone". "Uncluttered, polished experience".

The app comes with lots of controllable, easy-to-use, but advanced effects like different vintage and hipster-like filters, Tilt Shift (miniature faking), HDR, Lomo, Soften, Auto Adjust, Sharpen, Comic, Bulge, B&W, Sepia, Selective Blur and many more. Dynamic previews of the effects are shown in a list, making it possible to easily pick the right one. The high quality borders are also presented in a nice preview list and can be combined with any filter and any aspect ratio. Multiple effects can also be combined.
It is also possible to crop, rotate and flip images. An enhanced picture and the EXIF data can be saved to the phone’s pictures hub or shared directly on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social networks. Later editing is also supported. The app performs the image processing on the original picture in its original resolution, thus making it also possible to print the image or use it as desktop wallpaper.

    Great app except insisting I rate the app everytime I start up the app until I do actually rate it. On my fifth windows phone with numerous hard resets... Starting to get very annoying!

    Really great app. I originally thought it wasn't saving the pics but I was wrong... 😣

    Nice features. Works much better in newer WP8 phones.

    Some of the editing options are unavailable. Still a good app regardless
