Make dramatic changes to images

Fragment has a large selection of shapes called "fragments" that you can overlay your images with for unique results. In this picture, note the swipeable navigation bar of shapes at the bottom.

Extra controls

From the same image-editing window, you can swipe up from the bottom to get to common controls such as brightness or contrast, and there's a wheel for selecting different colors.

Color explosion

Though I went a little crazy here with bright colors, you can swipe the color wheel at the bottom for much finer adjustments.

Toggle at the top

The circle at the top of the screen lets you toggle between editing the photo alone, and editing the fragment that overlays it.
