Halftone 2 Lets You Turn Your Photos Into Fantastic Comic Books

May 23, 2013
Juicy Bits has just released the follow-up to its popular comics-style photo-editing app Halftone. And just as the sequel to, say, "X-Men" and "Iron Man" are called "X-Men 2" and "Iron Man 2," the sequel to Halftone is simply called Halftone 2. But Halftone 2 is a markedly different app from its predecessor, even as it also lets you edit your photos à la comic books. According to Juicy Bits, Halftone 2 was born out of numerous Halftone users' request to have more than one photo in a single page. And so, with Halftone 2, you can already have multiple photos in a single page. But in addition to that, you also get to compile multiple pages into a photo book, or a digital comic book, as it were. Halftone 2 boasts the following features:
  • A video guide that introduces basic concepts
  • Customizable captions and balloons
  • Stamps like WHAM, BAM, and POW that have been created by Comicraft for Halftone 2
  • Configurable page layouts and background textures
  • An enhanced image picker to open photos directly from Facebook, Flickr, and Instagram
  • Undo and redo support for risk-free exploration
  • Comprehensive photo editing tools from Aviary that include automatic enhancements, filter effects, brightness, contrast, saturation, sharpness, redeye, whiten, blemish, and selective focus
  • Direct sharing via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Dropbox, and AirPrint-enabled printers

Compatible with iPad running iOS 6.0 or later, Halftone 2 is available now in the App Store for free. The app offers a $1.99 in-app purchase each for the Captions, Stamps, Pages, and Fonts packs. If you intend to get all of those packs, better avail of the $6.99 Essentials pack instead to save yourself a dollar — which you can use to buy Halftone in the App Store, in case you haven't downloaded it yet.
