Customer Reviews

Pretty nice, but a major flaw

Rainy Window

First of all, this app can save in high resolution, which you can change in Option. Most photo apps save in low resolution by default since it saves battery, memory space. And most users want to upload simply to Facebook and etc, where low resolution is more than enough.

This app is pretty nice for making your normal photo into a monochrome/vintage. Especially, vintage conversions are quite believable and very nice, EXCEPT the borders. I believe that borders should have various vintage styles also. This app completely lacks the border option and because of the clean straight (no) border, the converted monochrome vintage photo, which is really nice in itself, does not really look vintage. I will purchase the complete filters when the app come with various vintage (and other) style borders.

Nice set of filters, but....


I bought the set of filters for 99 cents. Interesting and different from some of the other apps I have, so definitely worth it for that. But I can't find any options for saving at full resolution, which for me as a professional photographer is essential to printing. It would also be nice to have an opacity slider, like many of the other apps now have. So I like this, but it definitely could be improved to compete with other apps.

Ok set of free b&w filters, but low res saves is a deal killer


The app has a basic set of 10 B&W filters to tryout on this free version, and 25 more available via IAP. Each one of the "locked" filters and is $.99, $4.99 gets you all of them.

The major problem for me is the low resolution saves, 1.6 mp. When starting with 10-12mp images, reducing the image that much eliminates any possibility of a decent print.

The description says "high resolution" is supported by tapping the "More" button on the Library ppage. Well there is no More button!

I might consider paying for more presets if I could get "full (or near-full) resolution", not some lame interpretation of "high resolution". why don't developers just state what resolution is supported in the description. I'm editing 12mp images, what do I get when I save an image? Is that too much to ask?

This is a deal killer for me. I'll be deleting the free app, and watching for an update.
