Sometimes, you really want your terrific photos edited by a skilled expert, from Instagram or from somewhere else. Other times, you just want to browse through other folks' photographic collaborations. With Hippo Pics, you can connect with some of the best photo editors Instagram has to offer, have them edit your images in their particular style, and browse the creations made from other users' photographs.
Browse collaborations. Right from the home page of the app, you can see the kind of work the editors behind Hippo Pics make. You'll see bland and boring photographs turned into abstract works of art, funny images, or amazing feats of pixel-level editing. A wide variety of editors beautify and have fun with the images uploaded to Hippo Pics, so you never know what you might find in the collaborative photo galleries.
Submit your own image for editing. Hippo Pics makes it easy to upload your own photograph for editing, once you give the app access to your Photo Library. From there, you just wait to see what the team of aspiring and established expert editors might do with your image. When an edit is submitted for one of your images, you get a push notification, and you can see all of your collaborations on your profile tab.
Like, comment, and share collaborations. If you tap on an edit, you can interact with the person who worked on that image. You can like their work by tapping the heart, leave a comment praising their work, or share the picture to your Photo Library, a text message, Instagram, or other place.
What is it about?
Hippo Pics allows you to upload your image, and a team of skilled (or sometimes not-so-skilled) editors will go to work making your photo really stand out. The editors are acclaimed as being some of the best that Instagram has to offer. You might find your landscape suddenly populated with an ancient pyramid, or your photograph turned into abstract art. You can also apply to be an editor yourself, and have fun with other people's photographs.
For those who...
- Want to see their unedited photographs really come to life
- Would love to work their magic on other people's images
Not for those who...
- Don't care about having their photographs edited
- Don't want to edit other people's images
Why we love it
This app is quite fun. It's almost as much of a blast just surfing through the pictures uploaded and edited, since Hippo Pics allows you to tap and hold an image to see the original. Many of the editors are excellent artists, and more than a few will turn your boring image into something absolutely gorgeous or uproariously hilarious. You can easily see all of the edits that have been submitted for your image straight from your portfolio, and then export them to Instagram or your own Photo Library.
