Some of the effects include butterflies, bears, flowers and colorful bursts that look like fireworks. The program is divided into different categories that are easy to navigate, such as editing tools and filters. Aside from the frames that you can add to your pictures, you can also add filters that will change the overall appearance. Some of the filters are black and white, some give your pictures an antique appearance and some add fun details to the picture. You can preview the picture before saving or sharing. If you don't like how the picture looks, you can clear the image and start over. All of the tools that you work with are on the left side of the screen, giving you plenty of space to work with your picture on the right side of the screen. Other effects that you can use on your pictures include touching up imperfections and making small changes by cropping or rotating.
