Is it any good?

Impressive technology takes social media photos to amazing artistic levels with just a tap. Prisma - Art Photo Editor with Free Picture Effects & Cool Image Filters for Instagram Pics and Selfies is a snap to use but can be slow, with occasional hang-ups: Users will see the triangle logo turn white as the image is processing, but that sometimes just stops or seems to get stuck for a little longer than expected. The results are really cool, even if you have to wait for them, and the style selections range from abstract to modern to mixed media. Though there's nothing iffy about this app, it's still geared to social media sharing, so it's best for those 13 and up. Also, be aware that the developers can share images you create with affiliates for their own purposes, so retaining ownership doesn't necessarily mean retaining total control over your images.
