Tel-Aviv, Israel, June 05, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Israel-based startup Bazaart® announces the launch of the Bazaart iPhone application, available on the iTunes App Store for free. Part collage app, part social network, the Bazaart application is designed to help users be more creative and make collages from Pinterest pins.
“Up until now, people could only use Bazaart to make collages on the iPad,” said Stas Goferman, co-founder and CEO of Bazaart. “That tended to limit them to a weekend or late night type of activity. Not to mention that a lot of people who wanted to use Bazaart could not, simply because they did not have an iPad. With the new iPhone app more people will be able to make collages, whenever they want to, and wherever they are. We are here to enable people to boost their creativity.”
With the Bazaart iPhone app, the app starts by allowing users to get inspired by collages made by the Bazaart community. When users are feeling creatively fueled, they can start making their own collages, either by continuing one of the existing collages and giving it a new interpretation, or by making one from scratch. People use Bazaart to create art, make greetings cards, visualize their shopping list, illustrate room makeover ideas, and more.
The photos used to make the collages can be pulled from any user’s boards on Pinterest, or from Bazaart's popular boards, so users don’t have to have a Pinterest account in order to use Bazaart. Bazaart’s simple to use editor allows users to cut out the background automatically with an advanced computer vision algorithm, and with their fingertips, copy, flip, rotate, scale and position the photos in a collage.
“We took great care to adjust the user interface design and the photo manipulation algorithms to the iPhone, so that the people can play around with the photos on the canvas, as easily as they can on the iPad,” says Stas. “Our users are not professional collage artists, they’re just people who like to be creative and enjoy beautiful photos. We want to provide them with the best experience, whether they’re commuting on the train or lounged peacefully on their sofa at home.”
Pinterest is a major source of inspiration for millions of people around the world. However, what can people do with those carefully curated photos except keep pinning and wishing and making more boards? Well, not so much. And so, "the idea of letting people make collages from Pinterest pins came about," says Stas. Bazaart's mission is to help people around the world turn their favorite photos into memorable collages. The company starts by allowing anyone to make collages from the most inspirational photos out there.
Bazaart for the iPhone, a social collage app that gets your creative juices flowing.
