Leonardo - Photo Editor with Layer, Selection and Mask
By Pankaj Goswami
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Universal Photo Editor with support for Layers, Selection, Masks and of course filters, effects and other tools.
(Note that on iPhone 4 the max supported resolution is 2048x2048)
An editor so powerful that you could do almost anything that you thought was possible only on a desktop.
√ True layer support, just like photo editing on desktop.
√ Selection. You can select an area and work with filters and effects only on that area.
√ Layers can be masked. And not just with brush, you get a whole set of mask editing tool.
√ Layers support all that a true layer app should. Blending, Opacity, Transform, Duplicate, Merge and flatten.
√ The app is so fast that most of the operations are real time. You don't have to wait while adjusting the sliders.
√ Handles Exif, IPTC, Geotag etc. You can even edit Geotag and IPTC.
√ Exports PSD with layers. And of course exports JPEG and PNG too.
√ Copy/Paste with selections and masks.
√ Powerful filters you will hardly find on many other apps.
√ 25 preset photo effects.
√ Tools like Crop, Straighten, Clone stamp, color gradient, paint brush, red eye brush and add text etc.
√ You can save your projects with all layers and selections preserved and work on them back and forth.
√ 18 video tutorials.
√ Resolution up to 4096x4096 on iPad3 and above, 3264 for iPad2, iPad Mini and on iPhone max resolution is equal to the resolution of the built-in camera (Except for iPhone 4 where it is 2048x2048)
And yes, it runs on both iPhone and iPad.
Note that reduce noise filter is available only on iPhone 5 and iPad3 and above.
To get maximum resolution you will need to...
1. Go to home screen.
2. Press on the "?" button.
3. Under resolution, select the max.

Go to app for photo editing
Still my go to app for editing because it's so versatile with so many features. Great for masking and layering.
Just wish I could export to locations other than just Dropbox and that I could "open in" apps at full red and with EXIF data intact. Snapseed retains EXIF data via open in from photos on Dropbox photos and I can confirm EXIF data exists on photo using Big Photo, so it's possible, but not done in Leonardo. I hope this gets changed in future updates. I'm running iOS 8.4 on iPhone 5S and iPad Air and this aspect has never worked right for me. I'd also like EXIF data retained from copied and pasted photos.
Would so be great if there were iCloud Drive integration so I could open photos that are on my OneDrive. Pixelmator allows this, but I much prefer editing in Leonardo.
Awesome editing app with multiple layers
This is my favorite editing app on the iPad. I like being able to add another layer without having to merge what I already have. There are times I am not sure about the order of the layers until I get multiple elements and textures added to my composition. Leonardo allows me to change the order of my layers easily. The masking tool is great. I hope the developer continues to add features and improve Leonardo because it is indispensable to me.
Must admit, it took me awhile to learn the features of this app. The learning curve is lengthier than most. But I now love it to death. Previous reviewer complained about the undo not working as expected. It could be that the mask was still on. Once you mask an item, and make/save changes to the masked area, the mask is still on. If you want to make any more edits to the layer, you have to deselect the mask . Took me awhile to figure that out.
