Customer Reviews

If it wasn't For The a Birds .....

IMO, having the additional birds makes this app a nice addition to other iPad art apps that I use. As another user suggested , it would be REALLY nice to fit the birds into other places, i.e., move them to other parts of the artwork, split the bird pattern in half, make them less/more prominent, by color saturation, &/or sizing. In other words ... To be able to customize them to be where & how we want them. Right now, what you see (& pay for) is what you get. I'm not a big filter gal (I prefer to do it myself), but there are a couple that I like. It's the birds that I enjoy having access to. An addition of butterflies, bugs, lizards, etc., would be great!

Great but I want to manipulate birds too

It's a really good app I wish there was some more textures even with an in app purchase and I wish I could move the birds or a race parts of them however I have found it easy to do that using some other apps. Also great customer service and social media presence. There are a few textures in particular that are excellent and I like that you can flatten the image and keep adding more. Nice work!

Lower opacity of effect.

Nice ! I like the app to a point. All other great photo apps I have allow the option to reduce the visibility of an effect. My workaround now is to load the image in another app and reduce the effect over a copy that does not have the effect. I'd love to be able to do that within this app. Unless I'm missing something ... Let me know if I am. Thanks !
