Picture Editor

This is a photo editor from Motorola.  It lets you re-size your photos, paint on them and add borders, text and stamps.

It seems to designed for 176×220 or larger screen phones like the i856 or i9. The screens are cut off a little on my i776.

The Picture Editor can only work with photos taken with the phone’s camera, it doesn’t “see” wallpapers or pictures sent to the phone with bluetooth. It also can’t handle camera pictures taken in  the “extra large” or “wallpaper” size, only the “small”, “medium” and “large” resolutions. Hat tip to YoDude for finding this and posting it on his blog a few years ago.

Type: Freeware
Vendor: Motorola
Data Connection Required: No
Reported working on: Motorola i776 and Motorola i855.

  1. The app say invalid jar file WHY???

  2. My phone is N73 can i download it

  3. Invalid application for my nokia c1 java phone

  4. You should make a Samsung Seek picture editor too

  5. It wont let me download this to my incognito phone…… /: you should have a photo editor for the incognito! I really want one ( :

  6. I have to agree. the clutch does suck without some of the apps I downloaded.

  7. The boost mobile i465 is the worst phone ever!

    • agreeed

  8. I have an i855 and I can’t install; it always says authentication error. Is there a way? My kids would love to have this on our phone.

    • Authentication Errors are always fatal there’s no workaround. I’m surprised that the Picture Editor doesn’t work on an i855 though. I had that phone up a year ago and I’m almost certain it worked on that phone.

  9. boost i465 wont get past the initializing stage says java error … tried twice and had to remove it twice .

  10. the i856 comes with a decent pic editor

  11. this shows up as error on my phone. also i was wondering if you are going to post themes/skins for boost/nextel i9/i856 and so forth. but back to this. i tried it on 3 diff phones it wont DL

  12. I don’t know of any photo editor that will work on the i465.

  13. can u please do one for the i465, please

  14. my phone is incompatible when i ttried to install it it failed at loading classes

  15. thank u dennis ill try cause this is how i did it

    111-111-1111 do i space it or do all the numbers go together :-/

  16. The i856 has a pic editor in the phone itself no need to download this editor. It works the same way.

  17. When you enter your phone number just enter the 10 digits, no spaces, no dashes, no leading zero.

  18. wtf i did wat it said and it said teir were no new purchases…wat happened?!

  19. I hated my Clutch i465 until I found this site. Thank you!

  20. I get the same here on my i465 Clutch. Java Error

  21. java error on my i9??

  22. i got the same java error on my i9

  23. i suggest to use a PAINTCAM APPZ. . ITZ a picture editor too.. it w0Rkz in all unitz. over 200kb.

  24. i get the same msg 4 my i465

  25. can some one make it work on i856?

  26. It looks like this doesn’t work on the i9, i856, i456. It works on my i776 and on a i855.

  27. Dennis,
    I should have plenty of memory as I only have 11 apps total on my phone. The error occured during the first or second install step. I already deleted it, but may redownload and try again later.

  28. It gives me the same error and stops during validating classes on my i856 also.

  29. i get a java error on the verifying classes screen on my i9

  30. Same here…i856 with 44 Megs free space.

  31. Java error on my clutch too!

  32. it doesnt work on the i856 either ”java error”

  33. scoot, if may be that you don’t have enough free storage space to install. To find out if that is the problem. In Java Apps, click Picture Editor. It will again try to install but this time it will list each phase of the process and stop on the one that errors out.

    If the error occurs during the Loading Classes or Validating Classes phase then the app is incompatible with you phone.

    But if the error occurs during the Writing Flash or Allocating Flash phases it means that there is not enough free Flash memory space to complete the installation. This is internal memory not the SD card and there isn’t a lot of it. Delete one or more apps or games until the install succeeds.

    The pre-installed demos and bloatware are good candidates for deletion as you can always get them back by going to “Factory Pre-loads” in Download Apps and re-installing them.

  34. Would not work on my i465. Java error

  35. Would not work on my i456. When installing gives a “java error”
