Filters have come to Piictu!

"To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event."

- Henri Cartier-Bresson

Piictu is a place for people to collaborate around an idea by expressing their own point of view. We feel the intention behind a piic (what compels us to participate) is just as important as the composition of the resultant pixels. 

Many people notice that we didn’t include filters in the first versions of Piictu. While filters are fun and expressive, they do not make images great. Great images tell stories.

That said, we love experimenting with filters and camera effects, especially when they’re used to express a mood, push our creative boundaries, and do more than make “bad photos look good.” 

We also want to give our users the features they crave. This why we integrated Camera+ into Piictu. We’re huge admirers of Camera+, and we’re excited to see how it will affect our community, and our uploads. 

We hope you enjoy this new feature. Now let’s tell great stories!
