Creative Studio For Lumia Receives A Major Update: Brings Tilt Shift, Colour Pop, Collages & More

Nokia’s Creative Studio has come a long way since it first came out. Its not only much faster, but it pretty much enables you to do anything with photos that you could think of. Earlier it allowed you to the basics – crop, rotate, add filters, adjust the colour balance, brightness, vibrancy, clarity and remove red eyes, quickly and easily. But the new update takes the Creative Studio’s abilities to a new level, enter:

  • Blur: Focus Object, Radial+Tilt Shift

Focus Object lets you manually draw around the subject you want to highlight and the blurs the background.

Radial mode does the same thing, but gives you a circle you can work with.

Tilt Shift on the other hand keeps everything between two parallel lines in focus and blurs the rest. You can also set the blur level.

  • Colour Pop – Turns the photo into black and white and then highlights the colours you choose.
  • Collage Mode – The first photo you choose is the biggest, and then you can keep adding photos. There is sadly no way to choose between different frames yet.

Creative Studio is a free download from the Windows Phone Store. Thr best part about this update is that it works flawlessly on the slightly lower spec-d, Lumia 520, 620 and 720 as well.
