Polish is a great free image processing application, which contains a great selection of functionalities. The application is suitable for inexperienced users, who can easily navigate it. It has is a large selection of different options contained in classic photo-editors, but the creators made an effort to leave their personal stamp by adding stickers in neon variants and making collages.
In addition to the standard settings of contrast, brightness, and color, cutting and inserting images, Polish offers a large selection of attractive filters such as: lomo, pink, vignette, natural, warm, dew, dark, and others. You can try Glitch effects: negative, neon glow, or image blur. Also, there are numerous face and body retouching options – you can add muscles or tattoos to your photos, and you can also make yourself look thinner.
There is also the option to add and edit text. You can add captions in over a hundred variations and in a variety of styles and font sizes. It is interesting that the application contains the option to export to Facebook and Instagram, and even change the resolution to be ready for sharing.
Making collages is a unique feature. You can add up to 18 photos to one collage and arrange them as you like, then choose the shape of the edges, the picture frame, and the collage background. Polish contains a large selection of stickers in the free version, with one drawback. Namely, the stickers and effects of the free and paid versions are not separated into different sections but are constantly mixed, creating a somewhat confusing interface.
The thing that bothers us the most when processing images are the ads that “pop-out” from all possible angles and at all stages of photo processing, so it’s impossible not to notice them. The other complaint, which we have already mentioned, is the overlapping of effects from the paid version, which cannot be used in the free version.
If you want to “play” with photos on your phone, and you don’t mind the slightly confusing interface and can deal with annoying ads, then Polish is an excellent app for you.
