The name kind of says it all. It is allow you to ‘punch’ out a certain part of an image and add it on top of another. It only takes a few simple steps and the UI layout is super easy to use. Select a photo you want to punch something from, or take a new photo. Draw a circle around what you want to punch out and the app will access what you are circling and redraw a line around that portion. You can take it as it is or expand it to include other aspects. You can also manually draw around what you want cut out. This is easier said then done, but would work out pretty well with the Note or Note II and the use of the S Pen. Once you have your image cut out that you want, then you select a new photo to paste it on. Pretty simple.
I spent a good hour with the app and found it to be pretty entertaining. I am not all that creative personally, but I didn’t have any issues cutting out a subject and adding it to a different background. It worked out pretty well. There were a few downsides that i noticed after I got my image all fixed up the way I wanted. First, everything seems to be linked to Facebook. You have to be signed in with Facebook to share anything. All my Punch Shot images were saved, but not the final created photo. You can only share your finished work, not keep it on your device. At least not that I could ever find. I also ran into issues with it signing into my Facebook account. It has some potential and works great. If they can tweak it to save to device and not force Facebook into the mix at every turn, this would be a must have app. For now we would say if you are a Facebook junkie still, then this is right up your alley.
Feel free to pick up Photo Punch and give it a whirl.
Application: Photo Punch
Developer: SK Planet Co, Ltd.,
UPDATE: HA. Of course, the same day we share this awesome app and mention the fact that you can’t save the image to your device, they go and update it. That’s it’s right. An update to the app came out later in the day for this app that now lets you save your creations to your device. They also upgraded the UI a little bit and tossed in Japanese and Chinese language support. It is definitely now worth picking up.
