Font Candy – Typography Photo Editor is available for free from the Windows App Store.
Main features of this app for Windows 8 and 8.1:
The below screenshot shows the first screen which is displayed when you run the app on your device.
In the above screen, the grid of images displayed are the images fetched from your Pictures library. You can choose to click on any of these displayed to quickly open them up in the editor interface, or you can also choose to click on either Camera, Facebook or Browse buttons on the top of the grid of the images to open up either of those options for accessing your photos. As I found the capability to fetch photos from Facebook profile pretty interesting, I decided to give that option a go by clicking on the Facebook button.
Soon enough, I was asked to login to my Facebook account. After entering my credentials and allowing the app to access my photos, I was presented with a grid of the images that I had uploaded previously to Facebook and I clicked on one of them to open it up in the editor interface.
You can see that you can add fonts, decorations, tweak the background settings etc. by merely clicking on the desired option at the left side of the screen. Once chosen the desired option, you can click on the type that you want to add from the bottom of the screen right underneath the image preview, and you can then double tap to edit the font, decoration etc. You can also change the color of the font etc. via the fill option at the left side of the screen. You can see the artwork option in the below screenshot and various available artworks as well.
In the background mode from the left side of the screen, you can tweak things like brightness, blur etc. of the background image. You can see this better in the screenshot below where I have added a text, a decoration and tweaked the various background settings via the intuitive editor interface.
You can then choose to save the image via the downward facing arrow at the top of the pane on the left. You can head into the previous screen via the back button and you can also refresh and start from new by clicking on the rounded arrow button.
