Don't overdo it

While two or three effects can produce great results, there is a point at which it gets a bit out of hand.

Sharing options

When you're finished you can share your image with Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Flickr, or via e-mail. In my testing, using the Open With option crashed the app every time.
