Our Story

Once a upon a time, we had a vision to create an easy to use tool that would with a single click magically turn your photos into expressive works of art. Thus the PhotoMania Photo Effects Suite was born! 2 Billion photos and 40 Million users later, we are still on our journey to create inspiring and easy to use tools for photo editing to help you create and share your images easily.

We’re a small and experienced team (plus a dog) who enjoy working together. You’ll find us working on the next big feature, with a ping-pong match in-between and a heated discussion on world affairs over lunch.

You’re welcome to look around this site, or download our free apps on the App Store and Google Play. Be sure to check out our blog to catch up on the latest tips or get inspired by our community of photographers. Oh yes, and don’t forget to like us on Facebook.

Bar has been intrigued by computers ever since he remembers. As a teenager he built PCArena.org, a website for hardware, software and gaming enthusiasts, into an authority in its field. His period at a secret intelligence unit, we can’t mention. Nowadays, Bar is contemplating web architectures and mobile GPU optimisations.

Bnaya Peretz

Senior Developer

Bnaya is an autodidact software developer. He’s full stack, but in addition to travelling vertically around code he also goes horizontal and makes his mark more or less on all of our platforms from web to mobile and beyond. Bnaya is passionate about the internet as a technical challenge, as an unmediated global communication medium...and also as a cats worshiping platform.

When he’s not coding you’ll find him at the gym, walking about all sorts of hiking trails or attempting to wirelessly control some new gadget.
