Nokia has just released a new picture editing application for their range of Lumia Windows Phone handset named creative Studio and available right now in the marketplace. Besides edition pictures this app will also let you shoot panoramas with the use of the devices sensors (make sure to calibrate your compass before attempting to use this feature though).

Creative studio is somewhat reminiscent of Samsung’s FunShot Windows Phone application which was released last year.
