Good app but...

Your nameistaken

It’s a good app in almost every way except that it refuses to allow the user the choice of not using the camera. Why is that a problem? It’s a huge problem when the camera turns on and is live either looking in my room or at me. I only wanted to use my Photo library. It wouldn’t let me. I’m not happy about this because so many off the apps I’m interested in are made by one owner. Now, if I were to purchase one, I have to wait until I’ve paid to find out if the rest are like Brushstroke. Yes, I saw those icons. Each time I touched Photo Library, I was taken to Camera. Didn’t work . It’s not that I can’t figure out how to use the app. Maybe it just got stuck on Choose Camera. That’s possible. The app works for others.

Developer Response

Hi, we're happy to help! Brushstroke (and all of our other apps) do not require access to the camera to function. After starting Brushstroke, there are two icons centered on the screen: the left accesses your Photo Library and the right your camera. If you tap on the camera icon, the app will ask permission to access your camera. You can deny access with no impact on being able to access your Photo Library. If you accidentally did allow access but did not want to, open your Settings app; then, go to Privacy->Camera and turn off access to your camera for Brushstroke. This is also true of all of our other apps. I hope that helps. Thanks for your updated information. If you are experiencing an odd issue like described in your review, the following steps usually can resolve the problem. 1. Delete the app off of your device by tapping and holding the app icon until it begins to wiggle. Then, press the X button to delete the app. 2. Hold down the lock button and home button (or lock and volume down button on iPhone 7/8/X) on your device for around 6 seconds until you see the Apple logo and your device restarts. 3. Download the app again from the App Store. The download will be free since you've already purchased it. 4. Try the app again. If you are still experiencing an issue, please email us at and we’ll get back to you right away with more help.

Really impressed


This is such a cool concept. I can take any picture and turn it into a painting with full control over every detail. So much potential! Then I have the option to sign it, share it via social media, or actually have it printed, framed, and sent to my house. Outstanding! This app has become a major tool for my decorating as well as gift giving. I love it! I'm working on my 7th picture now! Update..... still great! Loving it!

Good Effects


I gave this app three stars because it‘s rather confusing. Once I select another photo and crop it, where do I go from there. I was very successful with my first photo results and saved it. I opened another photo and it already had a filter i think I had had used on my first one. I couldn’t figure out how to get rid of it to start anew. I tried everything and at first could not get anywhere because I could not close my photo album. I managed but don’t know how. Better tutorial is necessary. This app has potential.

Developer Response

Hi, thanks for your feedback. Brushstroke has built-in app help that can help you to learn more about how to use the app, including how to undo, redo, and reset changes while you’re editing a painting. You can tap the “question mark” button on the very first screen when you start the app to bring up the help. To answer your specific questions, once you’ve selected or cropped a photo, tap the top right arrow in the navigation bar to edit that photo with Brushstroke. You also use the “Reset on New Image” setting to reset the effects to default each time you load a new photo. Please don’t hesitate to let us know if we can help you with anything else by emailing us at
