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.

Freya's first

This is one of my favorite editing apps to make art photo's.
It is sooooo versatile. I have been able to make over 150 different backgrounds. I also, always use it as my finishing app. I don't feel like my art work is done without adding DistressedFX at the end. I love and purchase all of the packs. Please keep adding more overlays. This is a permanent part of my editing as a go to app allowing me to create some of my best work because of this app. 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.

This app is a lot of fun!


I’ve edited a lot of photos with this and I really enjoy it. One of the best things I’ve done with it is I’ve created several (there were 24 at last count!) totally different ‘paintings’ using the ‘test’ image that lets you preview the different effects! It’s a little shack on a little plot of prairie land with a huge sky and you can change it into anything you want! (Of course I’ve used other apps to add other effects but the end results have been fabulous!!) You can be tempted to overuse it but I do like the overall improvement to certain photos
