✨ Luxurious & Substantial ✨

This is one of my favorite apps; I use it every day! This developer makes fabulous apps but this one is perhaps the best one in terms of creative possibilities and user interface.

To maximize its potential, I suggest maybe learning it first on iPad to understand its structure before trying it on the (obviously smaller) iPhone — it is totally worth it.

What sets this app apart is that the end results are much more painterly and organic. You can go as subtle or intense as desired with effects that are tasteful and sophisticated. It is *packing* with elegance, mood & character!

The overall style leans towards an Old Masters feel (think plump clouds, feathery erosion & scratched whispers of what once was). It’s capable of turning even the smallest and most mediocre of jpegs into something mysteriously breathtaking.

App support is wonderful; all my queries were answered promptly. The app is already comprehensive but I do think it could maybe benefit from a cropping tool.

Love the application except for one small thing

The layered textured effects this application allows you to apply to your photos are amazing and unlimited.

There is a learning curve for the interface but I did not find it to be difficult at all.

My only complaint is that it removes the meta-data – geolocation/date from the photos when they are edited. I know there are privacy concerns and that is why some applications do this, but I wish it was an option that could be turned on or off by the user. I prefer the date and geolocation to stay intact.

More Than Just Filters

This app is amazing. Full of great textures and color grades that have various levels of fine tuning.

Dig deep enough and you'll find powerful edit adjustments too. Hint: they're under the adjustment section under color adjust: brightness, contrast, saturation, vibrancy, hue, exposure, gamma, white balance, highlights, shadows, red, green, and blue balance, and sharpness.

That along with all the great filters and you have an amazing photo editor.
