Top app for photo art editing.

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

Really Cool App, But...

I really like this App. First, it’s very easy to use and not cumbersome to me. The textures, birds, etc. are lovely. My only two issues with the App at this time are that the birds can only be reduced to a certain size. For many of my landscape photos, the smallest reduction is still too big and the birds don’t “fit in” with the landscape. Second, it would be great if there was a Preview option or rather, a Before and After option that many photo apps have. I find myself having to go all the way back to “None” to see the difference. Otherwise, a lovely App and also, very grateful for the recent Free Dreamy Birds pack. Thank you!
