Share Your Etching
Once you have created your beautiful etching, share it with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more. Etchings also plays nicely with other apps: you can import images directly into Etchings and export them in high-resolution (up to 3300x3300) to the camera roll or your (second) favourite photo app.
Find just the right look from the dozens of combinations in Etchings. Try the "Classic" filter to create a timeless black-and-white illustration with amazing detail or, if you are looking for a little fun, try the "Spectrum" filter to create an extra-vibrant work of art. Why not immortalize your friends on some faux money or send them first-class with the "Air Mail" postage stamp filter.
For even more options, check out the Florence FX Pack! From the striking colorful "Alice" filter to the funky rainbow "Sorbet" filter, you can unlock six more hand-crafted effects for just 99 cents (or local equivalent).
