Ok looks cool and it is in Java but what it uses? Swing, Java2D, JavaFX?.

Its looks like Swing/Java2D build on top of Netbeans platform.

Yes exactly, it is Graphics2D as the engine or pixel manipulation. And for the GUI it is Netbeans Platform and Swing.

Almost forget, many of the filters are come from JHLabs Image Filter

It is Graphics2D for pixel manipulation.

Yea I like Java a lot too. The only problem I see with it is that Goolge doesn't like it so much. If you have a website mainly based on java, you need to rething your strategy. You should mostly use Java for you site visitors, not so much your ranking factor. That felt a little off topic. Anyways I love this little piece of software. It looks great!

The Citra FX Photo effects are simply one of the best image filter effects for images as well as digital photos. The best thing about them is that the person using it does not really need any kind of experience to use it. The user interface is very friendly. The version 3.0 mentioned here has been updated and their latest version is 3.7 which seems to be very efficient and has now come up with more options where users can get their photo booth filters applied at a very fast rate!

I've been using Citra for awhile, and there's no doubt that it's user friendly. I've had friends borrow my laptop to use it, and after having no experience whatsoever with editing programs, they caught on almost immediatley. You can imagine how efficient a professional photographer can be with a program like this. I highly recommend this. It's wonderful!

Citra FX Photo Effects leaves a watermark on images during the trial. This program comes as a compressed ZIP file and leaves folders upon uninstall. We recommend this program because of its unique filter applications. wedding video in Worcestershire
