VSCO (Cam) Releases New Versions, Adds New Clarity Editing Tool


VSCO Cam fans are in for a little treat should they decide to update to the latest version of the well-loved photo editing software. Available now as version 4.4.1 for iOS and version 3.4.6 for Android, the update brings changes both visually and functionally.

The first thing you’ll notice is the change of the logo. It was definitely inspired by the pupil of an eye, very much aligned with how famous the app has become for photography enthusiasts and hobbyists. Second, the makers of the app decided to drop “Cam” in the name. It’s now simply called “VSCO”, probably after realizing that users love calling the app that as a nickname.


Aside from the visual and nominal changes, the update also adds a new editing feature for the iOS version called “Clarity”. This enables users to highlight more details in a photo without sacrificing sharpness and overall photo quality. It will be interesting how current users will be integrating this new editing tool in their post-processing, or if they are going to use this at all. It’s still a mystery, though, why the new editing tool isn’t available for Android. Hopefully, it will be in the next update.

A new feature, this time for both platforms, allows users to save a photos from the Explore tab to their own library just by double tapping. The saved photos can be accessed through the new “Saved Images” panel on the Library tab. Also, so far, the update seems to be free from bugs.
