Customer Reviews


I bought this app with an open mind thinking that it could be used to edit photos. Obviously for $8 it isn’t going to be photoshop but I still expected a few good functions from it. The first time I opened up this app it froze when i tried to adjust even the most simple of effects like saturation and brightness. I tried about 100 times after that thinking it was my computer but every single time resulted in a loading screen that eventually crashed the app. THIS APP IS MUCH WORSE THAT EDITING IN IPHOTO. I contacted customer support and they gave me a download to studio pro CK which also crashed then they told me I could not get a refund and it was a problem that their team hasn’t been able to fix. Complete waste of money. I would have rather burned my money in a bonfire than using it to buy this app. DO NOT LISTEN TO THE OTHER GOOD REVIEWS. EVEN IF THIS APP DIDN’T CRASH ITS NOT WORTH THE MONEY. If you are even thinking about buying this app, go donate your $8 to a homeless shelter where it can actually be put to good use and instead use another software to edit photos.

This app’s superpower is transforming mediocre photos into art. I played with it for about 20 minutes and loved the results. I made a cool background from a boring photo of a table lamp base, added a favorite quote and shared it to Pinterest. Then using a photo of stacks of plastic pipe on a truck, I made a dynamic graphic and pushed the colors up to neon yellow, red, & green.
Remember the viral image of the white/gold ~ blue/black dress? The pipe photo now looks to me like stacks of brightly colored tennis balls more than the open ends of lengths of pipe. I wonder which one you’d see?
I can’t wait to try this app on some of the great photos I got with a new prime lens. Food photography, baby pictures, and exterior landscape shots are the three that are up next.
The filters options seem endless, but as another review mentioned—you can save your favorite ones for an efficient work flow.

Lots of fun!

This is a really great app to create different versions of any photo. I love the frames that come as part of it as well. I also like thate way that one can use the other Macphun apps with it. It can be really simple or very detailed this way. I’ve had so much fun going between the apps and saving as I go. Later I check to see what I want to save permanently. This app comes with editing basics as well. You can go back and forth with ease and get creative! The filters and background are fantastic!
