Tired of using Instagram to spruce up your smartphone photos? Meet Repix, a free iOS app that lets you remix your snapshots by "painting" on them using different preset brushes.
The app comes with a number of free built-in brushes, including a "Cartoonize" brush for turning your photo into a cartoon and a "Charcoal" brush for making it a drawing. Additional brushes can be purchased within the app in packs of four; they include options such as “Stars” for creating a starry sky anywhere you like and “Van Gogh” for making your picture look similar to a piece of art created by the painter.
To get started using the editor, simply take a photo with the app, bring in a pic from your phone’s camera roll, or grab a photo from your Photo Stream or Facebook page.
You can then change the way your photo looks by brushing over the part you want to change, using one of the app's brushes. Effects can be applied to just a portion of a picture or the whole thing, and you can combine as many brush effects as you like to create the ultimate photo.
Your finished masterpiece can be shared directly from the app with your friends on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram.
Repix is available now on the App Store. Check out the video, above, to see Repix in action.
