EyeEm Brings ‘Open Edit’ To Android

Photosharing startup EyeEm has introduced its Open Edit function to Android. Initially launched on iOS in mid-December, Open Edit lets customers see precisely how others obtained to their last edits and apply the identical modifications to their very own pictures.

Final yr’s present/pageant introduced in additional than one hundred,000 submissions, so the startup is hoping it’ll encourage extra customers to choose-in to letting individuals see their course of. It’s tough, as a result of a number of the app’s most avid customers think about the ultimate edited photograph to be the precise piece of artwork and don’t need to exhibit the place a photograph began.

In fact, there’s additionally a enterprise purpose to get individuals utilizing customized edits over preset filters. EyeEm’s making an attempt to construct up a market for these prepared to promote content material they submit within the app, and providing up footage with distinctive appears supplies additional differentiation between their very own photographs and extra conventional inventory-photograph providers.
