How to use and have fun with this app
Once you have installed this app in your Windows 8 machine, a window will pop-up like the below shown screenshot.
You can see in the above screenshot that there are four categories which are Facebook, Google+, SkyDrive and Local. These are the places from where this app can pick up any picture. You will see another category when you slide this home page of the app to the right. This is named Special. Here you could add any photo from social network or from local drives to mark it as your favourite album.
How to edit photo using this app:
Just click on any photo which you want to edit like I have chosen a picture below:
As soon as you open a picture here in PhotoWeaver, the pic will be open with several options shown on the bottom of the page. If you see in the above screenshot at the left side bottom there is an option of Likes & comments. Also, there are several other tools like special effects, cropping etc. Once you are done with the changes you can just click on the upload or save button according to your desire. The Play option plays a slideshow of the pictures present in a folder. You can even edit the speed of the photo slideshow. Below is an example screenshot of a photo with effects added to it.
The special effects are powered by Aviary. Therefore you will find a lot of options to make your photos smart and bright. There is also an option of writing down text on the photo. You have to go through each of the different edit options present in the app to completely understand it. Once you are done, click on Done and upload it on your social network using the upload option in the previous screenshot.
Salient Features Of this App:
- You can view the comments on the pictures of social network using this.
- You can upload as many photos as you desire from one social network to another and that too in a single click.
- It helps you in sharing the photos with your friends, family members without leaving this app by using the share charm.
- It has some advanced editing options like effects, enhancements, stickers, rotate, crop etc.
- It helps you in downloading photos from social sites to your local drives.

PhotoWeaver is a nice and must try app. It keeps all your photos, pictures combined at one safe place. Using this, you don’t need to switch to social networks to see the comments. Again, as it provides the feature of seeing pictures either as thumbnail or large picture it saves your time in switching over one site to another. There is one problem related to this app and i.e. it supports ads which distract the user. According to my own personal interest, this is a wonderful app and is worth trying. You can go its official website to download it from there or you could click on the below link.
