    XnView Retro is a photo editor with lots of retro effects and frames

    • Simplicity
    • It runs smoothly
    • 20 retro effects, 26 frames
    • No signing up required, no ads, no watermarks
    • Layout should be enhanced
    • Needs a better integration with social networks

    "Retro retouch"

    Lately, most of the photo apps launched on the market are photo-based social networks (replicas of the one you have in mind). However, that apps require registering, inviting your friends and updating it everyday. Perhaps you don't want to sign up dozens of social networks: maybe what you want is just apply cute retro effects to your pictures and share them wherever you want. If that's your case, then XnView Retro fits you.

    XnView Retro doesn't have that social component: its value added lies on simplicity and a smoothly performance. Select the source of the photo you're going to edit: Take a photo from your camera or load it from your device gallery. You can crop or skip that step and then you get to the editor dashboard. It's made up by five bottom buttons from where yo can adjust brightness, contrast and saturation, apply up to 20 different retro effects, vignetting your photo with 26 available frames and save/share the final outcome.

    Instead of social features, XnView goes for an easy-to-use app that doesn't requires signing up, and that offers some great editing options with no ads, no watermarks and no restrictions. Obviously, it can be enhanced in some regards: layout, amount of effects and frames and, social network integration. However, it's a good starting point for those looking for fast photo editing.

    Automatically adds bokeh filter to photos when opened and cannot be removed. Useless.
