[prMac.com] Arlington Heights, Illinois - Penny Road, Inc. announced the release of Yitpic 1.0, the world's first image and photo filter sharing social network for artists and photographers. Built around creating and sharing original photo filters and digital artwork, the Yitpic app is an advanced image editor offering endless adjustments for image enhancing. Yitpic is now available for iPad and iPad Mini on the Apple iTunes Store.
Editing and Retouching:
Yitpic offers standard image editing controls, such as brightness, contrast and color balance, in addition to a variety of effects, such as borders, textures, gradients, blur, glow, and vintage lens effects. Yitpic also includes Magazine Quality Retouch, a process used by professional retouchers to add sheen to the skin in fashion, beauty and glamour photography. From a modern professional glossy look to retro film style, to something outrageous and cartoony, Yitpic puts complete creative control at the fingertips of its users.
All of Yitpic's settings can be combined to create an infinite variety of eye catching photo filters. Yitpic is the first app to allow the creation of custom photo filters and the ability to share them with other artists and photographers worldwide.
Yitpic comes standard with over 230 preset filters (with many more online), grouped into categories such as Vintage, Artistic, People, Landscape, and Hollywood. The filters are optimized to enhance different types of pictures, for example, "Nightlife" improves the dark and harsh portraits taken at a party or nightclub, while "50's Hollywood Glamour" gives photos the glamorous style made famous by legendary Hollywood photographer George Hurrell. Some filters are corrective, and are designed to correct flaws like underexposure or low saturation. Because every photo is different, Yitpic makes it easy to further adjust the photo after the filter has been applied.
Yitpic also lets users share to Facebook and Twitter, as well as to its own photo sharing network, at the touch of a button. Yitpic's photo sharing network gives users the unique ability to add their artistic vision to original photos shared by other users. As long as a user has allowed editing of their raw image, other users can edit the original image and upload it as a photo response, allowing artists to share their creativity with other artists.
* Requires iPad with iOS 4.3 or later

Pricing and Availability:
Yitpic 1.0 is available at the introductory price of $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photo & Video category.
