Customer Reviews

Professional Movie Company's App. Nice Job!

I own a bunch of iPhone photo effect apps (more than 30, I think), and the large majority have no subtlety, so your "warm tone photo" looks like like you took a photo with a large incandescent light bulb behind you. Tiffen is an honest-to-God professional lens and filter company for photographers and movies, and the results are very nice. You can make your photo grotesque if you want, but you can also just tweak it a little, to bring out facial expressions, etc. The screen shots look like all the other apps, but once you select the basic theme of the filter, you then have the option of 10% to 100% expression of that filter, 10% at a time (so you can repeat the photo treatment, if you choose. That subtlety makes all the difference.

Little window, circular blur and maybe text?

I do truly enjoy using your product, it is a great app and I am able to do lot with it. Would it be too much to ask if you could add (as you sharpen the image) a small window to see how it affect the sharpening of the image while in execution? Also, the blur icon only offers "linear" options and not "circular" ones, this option would add amazing effects to my pictures using your app. I would like to add some text on some editing and in these cases I have to other apps for it. Again, I would like to use your app for such editing.

Regards, a very satisfied costumer!

One of the best

If you like full control of your editing and not looking for one click filters this is a professional tool. If you don't know how to edit manually or you don't understand photography and manipulating the lighting in post this is not for you.
