Customer Reviews

Interesting texture and over lay application.

I'm typing this on an iPad screen so this is going to be short.

While I like the premise of this application and I'd really like to like a this I feel as if there is a lot of room for improvement. Improvement which could command a higher price than what the application currently sells for.

I'd like to see layers, or at the very least the ability to edit each of the two different options separately. Right now if I want to use another affect on top of a previous one, I must save the photo and open it up again.

I'd also like to have more customization of either the texture or overlays, such as scaling, and perhaps a series of choices on how the texture or overlay affects the original photo. I.e.: darken, lighten, exclusion, tone, color or hue... etc.

Another nice touch to this promising program would be the ability to ad a mask layer.

I like the textures and honestly like some of the effects. I did purchase a few of the art packs. I do wish I could have these packs all open rather than having to open them up one at a time.

Having recently spent a fair amount of time researching the possible sale of my own art work, textures, photo elements, as well as bitmap silhouettes for composite photography, it's not hard to see this program as a clever way an artist could increase their sales in a super competitive market.

Top app for photo art editing.

This is one of my favorite editing apps to make art photo's. The update is fantastic. It is very versatile. I have been able to make over 160 backgrounds. Of course I always credit distressedfx when ever I use it. This app is used at different points in my editing. I love all of the packs. The new tree pack is outstanding. Please keep adding more overlays. This is a permanent part of my editing as a go to app. I have done some of my best work because of this app. Before I leave, there are tools in the app to help you use it in different ways and access to a user gallery that can inspire so many new options. I would give you 10 stars if I could.


Still one of the best!!!

I thoroughly enjoy using this app. May not be as sophisticated as some, but what it does, it does well.

I continue to enjoy this app after years of use. I especially like the easy ability to add custom textures to my photos. It has improved greatly, in my opinion, over the years.
