Multi-line text will be automatically formatted to fit the image size. Font can be cursive or standard, with any size (pinch to scale) and color.

When you create an amazing combination of effects, Live FX can help you to share this photo effect with other users. Simply copy filter code to the clipboard to send it via email or text message. Then other users can paste this code into Live FX to get the same photo effect.

When you are done with effects, it is quick and easy to share the image from within the app to
- Flickr
- Facebook
- Twitter
- E-mail (maximum JPEG compression quality and the highest photo resolution).

Live FX works with almost any image size and saves images with wallpaper sizes (320x480, 640x480px) or original high resolution (2048x1536, 2592x1944px).
