In a recent project we were asked to include some photo editing features, similar in nature, but not exactly the same as Instagram. Being a low budget project for a charity we had to keep costs in mind and also wanted to give the client the best possible feature set available. That’s where img.ly comes in with their PhotoEditor SDK. PhotoEditor SDK allows you to include out of the box image editing on-par if not greater than any other social app, platform or network to date.
img.ly are offering a free trial on the SDK however after 7 days it does require a very small payment to support ongoing development. If you operate or own a charity, or are simply contracted to do work for a charity, you will be able to get a free perpetual licence by getting in touch with the friendly folks over at img.ly.
