Laminar Express — All Aboard!

Laminar for the iPad has become a pretty nice full featured editor. I did a quick review of Laminar when it came out near the start of 2012 and I was impressed.

Laminar Express — GUI

This week the developer released a free version called Laminar Express. This version is fully functional but has a few limitations:

  • Maximum working resolution is limited to 1024×768.
  • Exported images have a small non intrusive watermark stamp on the bottom right.
  • Watermark is added only on the images shared, not on the images saved to the library.
  • Web search using Bing is not available on the express version.

This will allow you to get a feel for exactly how the app works so you can decide if you want to go ahead and buy the full version – which supports output resolution as high as 3872×3872 (15MP) on iPad2+.

If you are interested in a full featured photo editor you should definitely download Laminar Express and try it out for free!

      In Laminar Pro (which is what is currently on my iPhone) you would use Edit (at bottom of screen), and then choose Annotate. Then you can type text, drag it around, expand, and rotate it. The font is displayed on the left side, and you tap that name you can then scroll through the listing of available fonts.
