How to Add Image Effects with Picosmos Tools
Click ‘Effect’ on the main interface of Picosmos Tools to open a tool to add color and distortion filters on a selected image. Different types of selection tools and correctional brushes are provided to make the effects as detailed and beautified as possible. You can select those on the right of the interface. Along with these features, you can change the brightness, contrast, hue, etc. of the image from the sliders. If you mess up your picture, select ‘Reset Image’ to undo all the effects you have added. The image filters, stickers and picture frames can be selected form the panel on the left.
How to Batch Process Images with Picosmos Tools
A very useful featured tool of Picosmos is that it can process images in a batch. You can do that through Picosmos Show, which is Picosmos’ default image browser. On the left of Picosmos show’s interface is the Batch Section. Here you can resize, color, optimize, rotate, watermark and rename images that you have selected on Picosmos Show. For each option a new window will pop out where you can toggle the settings according to taste, but the changes you make on your picture will be permanent. So, it is advisable to work on copies of the images rather than the original.
How to Combine and Split Image(s) with Picosmos Tools
Picosmos tools also lets you cut an image with the split tool into rectangular or square pieces as framed by a grid on the image. You can change the number of columns and rows of the grid to divide the image into the defined number of cutouts. So, a grid of 3 columns X 3 rows will split the image into 9 equal pieces. Select ‘Split’ in the menu to do so.
If you already have a group of images which connect like puzzles (not necessarily), you can combine the images into a super image. Select ‘Combine’ on the Picosmos interface and further select the images you want to combine. It’s a good way to make a collage quick.

You will be able to select stickers, color filters and frames from the right.

Taking screenshots with Picosmos tools is a step above the normal process of taking screenshots. Click on Screen Capture to launch the cursor in screen capturing mode where you select the part of the screen you want to capture.
