Impressive App


This is a very competent editor. The developer is constantly working on this app. He is either tweaking the performance, adapting it to a new IOS or adding new capabilities.

As mentioned by another reviewer, this app is truly a labor of love for the developer. The app continually grows and improve with time. I find myself deleting apps, that I never thought had an expiration date. If you are looking to save high resolution files for print, this is simply a must have.

Creative B&W Explorer


LineEngraver seems to be a labor of love. The developer often makes updates to fine-tune the experience. The app is pleasant with a good range of preset effects, all of which can be further tweaked by the user. I enjoy experimenting with photos in my archives, finding those with good grey scale potential. This is one of my primary iOS photography apps.



LineEngraver opens up a new set of doors in regards to photography. There's so much more you can do with just Monochrome that I never knew you could do. This app is worth the price and it engulfed me more into photography and I'm sure it will engulf others as well.
