Needs options to adjust sticker light/color levels

Suggest the app allow adjustments to the sticker's brightness & color levels, in order to blend in with the levels of the user's photo.

We've used the online version of this photo editor for years. It's fun to add Santa or other characters to home & group pics. The different poses and the ability to adjust size & tilt help it to look real. However, while the website allows edits to the brightness & color of the character, the app doesn't. So you end up with this bright red Santa that doesn't blend into the hue of the original image. Looks super fake. The app allows edits, but it edits the entire image, not just the character. This app needs options to edit only the sticker's brightness & color levels to blend in better with the levels of the photo. Like it does on their website photo editor.

Hi, not sure if you have updated to the new version, 2.1, but we did add the ability to edit the Santa stickers. You can change the brightness, contrast and saturation. Gives the abiltiy to make it look more realistic. We appreciate your patronage and hope you find the new app more robust. An update to your review would be greatly appreciated!! Happy Holidays.

Has potential to be something good

Unfortunately, not only are majority of things to do on here $1-6, but the app stops working after you purchase them. -_- I got the St Patricks day make yourself leprechaun and if you click stickers, app crashes every time so they cannot be used for St Patricks day (today). It needs more interaction. There can be 10 sets of stickers (some 3 or having 12 of same sticker) but it is $1 or $6 per set. If you want tooth fairy, easter bunny, or santa in the picture, be prepared to easily chalk up $18 for all three. Even things like a candy heart for valentines day can cost you few bucks after said and done. I wouldnt mind paying $1 for the leprechaun yourself sticker set but app no longer works now that I paid for them.

If you want to put leprechaun in picture, you will chalk out $1-6 depending on stickers you want.

I wouldnt bother with this app. Save your money for different one.

Developer Response ,

Greetings from Capture the Magic. First we would like to sincerely apologize for any issues you had with our Catchy app. Our intention is to provide an easy to use app that spreads smiles to both parents and children alike.

As with any technology there are glitches and although we had 100’s of thousands of successful user experiences we are heartbroken for those that did not have the same. We spent almost the whole year redoing our app from the ground up and changing how the app communicates with the Apple store and the hosting services required to serve up our app. Last year we broke our servers with the large numbers of users hitting us all at once.

We believe that the app is now very solid and what you should expect from something you pay for. If interested we would appreciate you trying our new version 2.1 available on the app store now: If you have a current version on your device please uninstall and reinstall this one. All previous purchases if any can be restored by tapping on the Support tab and restoring purchases.

In the event there is an issue we would appreciate your feedback so we can address the problems.

We hope we have hit the mark for you and hope you have a safe and Happy Holiday.


Love this app

Had problems at first, when I would select stickers the app would crash. I sent an email and got an immediate response which by following their instructions I was able to use the app. There are several free apps, you don't have to buy everything. I am driving my friends crazy sending all sorts of pictures using this app. WOULD RECOMMEND THIS. Customer Service is fantastic, you don't receive an email back saying they have received your email and will be getting back to you, immediate response to your concerns.
