  3. Edit photos as you creating new posts (mobile app only).

The Visibly photo editor provides the following functionality:

-Transform : Our transform feature unifies cropping, flipping and rotation operations in one feature.

-Filter: Filters determine the mood and atmosphere of your pictures and help convey the right message for your creative.

-Adjust: The adjustment section is as versatile as Swiss army knife and holds both essential and advanced photo editing features.

-Sticker and Text: The robust text feature provides all the necessary functions for quickly adding text to any picture or creative. The Visibly editor also has a categorised sticker library whose UI is optimised for exploration and discovery.

-Overlay: This feature can be used to create neat lighting effects such as lens flare, bokeh or light leaks.

-Frame: The Visibly editor includes a versatile frame tool that works with any given photo size or ratio and provides two distinct options to apply frames.

-Brush: The brush engine is optimised for touch screen interaction and support different brush strokes  that can be edited in terms of thickness and colour.

Once the photo is in edit mode, the screen will darken in order to frame the image. Controls will then appear to edit the image.
