Hidden features and interactions every Polarr user should know

We designed Polarr to be accessible to users both new and experienced in photo editing. Anything you need to do with the app is easy to figure out after playing around for a few minutes or watching the tutorials included. Most anything you would need to do with Polarr shouldn't be too hidden or hard to figure out.

That said, we do have a few features in the app that might not quite be on your radar. There are also some interactions that can be hard to discover on your own. In this blog post, we'll share 25 features and interactions in the app that deserve a bit more of your attention. Power users are gonna enjoy this blog post. 💪

Free filters for all our users

We recently revamped the collection of filters available in Polarr. This revamp had us not only rename the filters but rework the actual edits made when applied. The result? Filters that look better than ever. To celebrate, we went ahead and made a bunch of filters free for our users. Now you have access to over 100 free, high-quality filters that make editing your photos a breeze.

How to customize Polarr

Inside Polarr is the ability to make your editing workspace entirely your own. It's pretty easy, but you might miss it unless you play around with the app on a regular basis. This post is for those not aware of the ability to select a custom color theme or rearrange icons. Here's how you do it!

Custom color theme

By default, you'll notice that the majority of the app UI is dark. Most people prefer editing photos in a dark or light environment in order to focus on the photo itself. You can change the color of Polarr Photo Editor by going into settings and selecting a new theme. You'll notice four options: Dark theme, Dark theme+, Light theme and Custom color. Here's how it looks like on the iOS version of Polarr.
