Over the last few days popular photo editing app VSCO have been teasing a surprise announcement coming on their iPhone app – today, this turned out to be to be the launch of a brand new app called DSCO.

DSCO allows you to shoot animated short 2.5 second long GIFs, and edit them using a number of image presets we know and love on the VSCO app, then share them in a number of ways including on your VSCO profile or social media. The app will conveniently save your animation in both .GIF and .MP4 (video) format.

While 2.5 seconds may not seem like a long time the app will actually loop your creation, similar to Instagrams GIF-making app Boomerang, which also launched only recently.

At this stage there are 5 presets available, however there exclusive presets for the DSCO app developed in partnership with cultural innovators such as MTV, Opening Ceremony and others. VSCO have promised more of their own branded presets in future.

VSCO will be rolling out a series of branded presents with curated partners in the weeks to come.

DSCO is an exclusive iOS app at this stage which can be downloaded from the App Store.
