About Lightricks:
Lightricks Ltd., an Israeli startup, was founded by five entrepreneurs with vast experience in both industry and academy. With backgrounds in computer graphics, image processing, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and previous experience at Adobe, Microsoft and Google, the Lightricks team grew frustrated with the gap between cutting-edge algorithms and the lack of mobile-first, powerful and user-friendly image editing tools.

Lightricks developed the LTEngine(TM), a state-of-the-art mobile image processing engine, and the SafeBrush(TM), a precision tool for the most accurate results. Building on this technology, Lightricks created the successful mobile app Facetune, a powerful and fun portrait photo editor that enables everyday users to easily achieve magazine-level results. Facetune became the #1 Photo & Video app in 127 countries, was selected for Apple's Best of 2013, and has been featured in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, InStyle, USA Today and other leading media outlets. Facetune is only the beginning, as Lightricks continues to develop innovative and accessible image-processing applications that aim to change the landscape of mobile digital content creation.
