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.

Serious editor for serious skills
This is the power tool for skilled editors. There are a thousand one-click "make it pretty" apps for snapshooters. Leonardo will do fast automatic adjustments, too. But if you're serious about image editing, you need Leonardo. Layers, paintable masks, full controls - this is the one I turn to when I my image needs real help.
I give it five stars because of what it is right now. (And at such a great price.) But in the future, I would be willing to pay much more if it included:
* Eyedropper sampling of colors across the image
* Custom color palettes
* Better control over leading and kerning of text
* Clone controls that are simpler and more obvious
* Variable non-linear stretching of layers (admittedly, I'm talking about a quick-and-dirty cheat to help make elements fit together)
* Liquifaction. I was floored to find that actually working ON MY PHONE in another app. Add it to Leo and you'd have, well, Photoshop. A boy can dream.
But I love Leonardo just the way it is right now, and use it almost every day.
Does what others won't.
Need to paint a mask? Oops—Pixelmator doesn't do masking (yet; I remain hopeful that the devs will realize how stupid this is).
Need multiple layers? Oops—iColorama doesn't do that.
Need a usable mobile UI? Oops—ArtStudio doesn't have that.
And that, friends, is why Leonardo is still a big part of my workflow. It's not the most versatile; it's not the fanciest UI, or even the most streamlined for how I work—but it's got the *best* selection & masking tools around.
I'm using this offer instead of photoshop edit my pictures. It's advanced, easy to use, and full of features! The only thing I would like to see is being about to paste an image or part of an image into another image. Or maybe you already can do this but I can't figure it out? Anyways, great app and I would recommend it!
