Not working so well for me

I have an iPhone 6S with the last version of iOS 11. I take a picture of myself. It turns out that there is a lot of red in my skin. Some mixture of red and peach anyway. Not just one flat shade. I try to use the picker and it takes out a little of the color. I want to remove the color from my face and leave my clothes with color, but doesn’t seem to work very well. If I go to the second page or whatever that is where it has add and remove color, it completely takes away or adds color wherever you swipe. Because I don’t find the first part to work very well, this one, I would like it if I tap on a computer lot and it starts with the color I touch first and it only adds or takes away that color as I swipe around the picture. That’s the way the first one should work I think. Overall, I’m just not finding it to work so well, so I just use Leonardo to remove or add color. Much easier to work with. By the way, I have nothing to do with Leonardo other than using it.

Can’t get the app to load

I wish the support page wasn’t on Facebook, so I could talk to someone without logging onto my defunct account. But the app crashes every time I try to load it, even after hard resets and getting rid of half my other apps. Sad because I was excited to play with it and paid for it, even though it was free yesterday.

IPhone 6, version 11.4. Will soon upgrade. Thanks for the reply! I really would love to use this fun-looking app.

Color Accent

Love this app! I love to take a bright color from my photo and make it stand out against a b&w background. Would love to be able to choose more than one color, or take that one color and change it to another (color swap).
