Prisma may have been one of the most popular photo apps across platforms last year but it seems like the hoopla around the app is settling down gradually. Prisma, however, is trying to entice users with new filters and features, this time around they have come up with a new tool that will let users create their own styles and upload an image or even edit an existing filter. Prisma has also announced a styles store from where users can download new styles as and when it is released by Prisma.
The store approach seems to be a clever one, with this Prisma can stop bundling all the styles with the app and instead encourage the users to download the same from the store. Also, the store is something that will help Prisma position their paid styles better to more than 2M daily active users. Users will also be able to delete the styles that they don’t like.
However, as of now all the content on the store is free but this might soon change. User reviews and rating system will follow suit in the near future. Yet another major development is that Prisma is also launching a desktop tool for users to create styles but as of now the tool is available only for most active users. Folks at TechCrunch tested a version of the style creation tool before the public release and the whole process of style creation apparently took several days. They further pointed out at the almost nonexistent progress review which meant that you would end up checking the process several times a day.
Prisma, on the other hand, claims that the style creation will take “an hour or so” but also warns the users about longer wait times, something that will be evident after the launch. At this juncture, the realtime changes while applying the style filter are not up to the mark and there is no way to ascertain how the changes will make the picture look.“It’s a desktop product right now, The interface is not final for sure. We’ll add some hints and useful notes there. But people will definitely be able to create their own styles on mobile devices. We’re a mobile company”- Aram Airapetyan, Prisma Labs co-founder.

The first slider is for shape, the second is for color and the third for big objects while the fourth relates to tiny details and all of this is expected to be bundled in a much easier way when it comes to the final release.
