Greenville, South Carolina – Mobile photo editing startup, Blue Jinjer launched their much-anticipated mobile application, Effexy, on iOS this week. The app gives mobile photographers extreme photo-editing capabilities to create highly personalized effects. Effexy offers a wide range of “effex” and filters, allowing amateur and experienced photo-editors to create unique images. Motion blur, liquify, hand shake, and melt features make it easy to transform photographs into amazing, dramatic images and can be layered for added interest. For the millions of social photographers out there, their dramatic edited photos can then be posted to Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr directly from Effexy.
Fun has always been at the forefront of the app’s development goals. “We’ve worked hard to ensure that we got the blend between fun and professionalism right,” notes John Werry, founder of Blue Jinjer. “We want the app to be fun and intuitive for the average photo app user while offering a lot to the ‘pro’ user, such as offering full resolution output, meaning that you can create full-size edits of your images from within the app.”
When asked about what inspired him to build Effexy, Werry said, “I was inspired by techniques used in conventional photography like the use of slow shutter speed combined with camera movement to create artistic, abstract images. I wanted to bring that approach to photographic imagery to the mobile camera with Effexy.”
“We’ve made the app as interactive as possible, with users being able to add blur effects by dragging a finger across the screen or by shaking the device. We added effects that provide dramatic editing capabilities such as Melt and Liquify, as well as basic photo filters such as color, sharpening and brightness for enhancing the final image without leaving the app,” Werry adds.
Pre-launch marketing has led to much excitement on social networking sites such as Facebook, where the app has already accumulated over 35,000 photo enthusiasts anxiously awaiting the app’s launch.
