*We have been given full permission to use all assets featured in the app by their respective creators. It’s important to note that the assets bundled with the app are all free and available to download online at any time. You are paying for the app (not the assets per-se) but rather the editing functionality and the sample asset packs are a bonus since they are already free. The app simply creates a convenient interface for the user to access some of these free assets (especially if they don’t have any). Since these assets are free you are not paying for them. We will be adding and rotating them occasionally but the old packs will all be available to download via the creators websites (see link to these from our app or website).

Ratings and Reviews

Too much money for the value you get.


Disappointed, the inspiration link isn't working in my iPad Pro. The app gives you basic features as any free app will give you and the presets are from great artists and could download it without buying the app.

Eh... :/


Things that will make this app better:
1. Not being forced to crop/easier crop feature (it's so hard to crop an image without rotating it unintentionally)
2. Download overlay packs from the Internet AND add them with Meld's (or put a different background on the camera roll setting because overlays that are white with transparent backgrounds just look blank)
3. MAINTAIN IMAGE QUALITY (all my images lose quality during and after Meld..)

needs higher res output


hey guys. now that the iPad pro is upon us, i really wish you would own up the export resolution a bit more, even to just 12 megapixels would be a start. but I would love to incorporate apps like this into my pro art workflow. just not if the resulting image is no larger than a thumbnail.
