What you need to know about Photo Lab and its templates

Photo Lab is a mobile application for iOS and Android with a unique collection of instant photo effects that we call templates. It’s a good idea to have one general term for all types of effects. Filters, art style transfers, face montages, and more - we call them all templates.

Templates in their turn are created with an easy-to-use tool that allows pretty much anyone (with even basic Photoshop skills) to be a photo effect designer.

How you actually create a template


Create and upload your template

Use Template Creator (specialized Windows-based software adapted to work with Photoshop) to create your template and upload it to your Designer’s Dashboard.


Keep calm and wait until your template is approved

We take quality seriously, so each template is verified to fit our standards. While your effect is in moderation, only you can see and use it.


Create a combo and share it with Photo Lab users

Once your template is approved, combine it with other effects using the Photo Lab mobile app. Then share combos containing your effects, so anyone could use them!
