OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- VSCO® announced today the launch of DSCO, a free GIF-making app exclusively for iOS that uses VSCO's superior imaging technology in the creation of short, looping GIFs. The introduction of GIFs to VSCO's global platform adds a layer of fun, creative expression alongside photos, journals, and curation.
"DSCO broadens how our community can express themselves," said VSCO co-founder and CEO Joel Flory. "We saw VSCO being used in unprecedented ways, and we wanted to ignite that playfulness and originality."
DSCO's easy-to-use interface encourages simple shooting, editing, and sharing. People are able to choose from a selection of VSCO's most popular presets or from exclusive DSCO presets developed in partnership with cultural innovators such as MTV, Opening Ceremony and others. VSCO will be rolling out a series of branded presents with curated partners in the weeks to come.
DSCO integrates seamlessly into the VSCO platform with simple sharing to user profiles. The GIFs are visible on both the VSCO mobile app and web allowing for user interaction and easy sharing to other platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram.
"GIFs are an incredible form of creativity," said Greg Lutze, VSCO co-founder. "They can display a wide range of human emotion and perspectives. They are less about being cool and more about being interesting, real and fun, which aligns with our vision for VSCO."
DSCO is available now for free in the iOS App Store. Download it here.
