At MightyText we strive to build things that make your life just a little bit easier.
We had this in mind when we launched our photos & videos sync feature a few weeks ago. It give you the power to sync photos and videos from your phone to the MightyText web app instantly and securely.
The initial reaction from some of our users was “Not sure I need this, since I already sync my photos with Dropbox!”. We built photo/video sync in MightyText because, even with services like Dropbox, we think managing & sharing photos among multiple devices is still too hard. Your phone is the best tool to capture photos (because you always have it), but isn’t the easiest device to use to share and edit those photos.
Make your photos come to life: apply Instagram-like filters, doodle/draw, add frames, stickers
In addition to making sharing a photo or video DEAD SIMPLE (try sharing a photo in MightyText – it’s wicked easy & fast), we also wanted to make it super easy to make your photos come to life.
We’ve just launched our “Magic” Photo Editor, which allows you to enhance and “remix” your photos with just a few clicks in the web app.
Here’s a example of how it works.
In the photos/videos gallery, pick a photo to enhance – click the “Magic” icon:
Your photo will appear in a photo editor, where you can quickly add Instagram-like filters, draw/doodle, add funny stickers or a frame, rotate/crop and more.
Let’s apply a nifty filter to our scenic photo:
Now, let’s write something on top of the photo:
That’s it — done, in just a few clicks…
You can choose to keep the photo private in MightyText, or, if you’d like, easily share the “remixed” photo with a single click. Only people who know the link can see the photo.
Whoever you share the link with will see your new creation:
We want to make sharing & editing photos sync’d from your phone easy, simple, and fun.
