Paid version - amazing!

I tried a few similar apps (free) before determining I liked photolab best and deciding to invest a few bucks into the paid version. Worth every penny. So much fun, endless options, fun to share! I have two complaints: 1) there’s no way to better organize or search for filters. So if remember part of the filter name I have to spend 5 minutes finding it because I can’t remember if it’s considered a lighting effect or an overlay, a simple border or a frame or an “amazing frame”. There are just too many filters for them to not be searchable or broken down in some other way. 2) it’s cumbersome to preview different filter/effects on a photo, there’s no way to do it quickly. It’s somewhat easier to try different photos with the same filter/effect (because you choose your effect first, then the photo you want to apply it to; I think it should work the other way around). Once you’ve processed an effect on a picture it gives you a way to more easily preview ADDITIONAL filters and effects on the same altered picture, but I wish that option was there from the get-go for photos that haven’t already been run through at least one filter. So it can get frustrating and I think ultimately takes too long to make your masterpiece if you are experimenting. Still a lot of fun though with some pretty cool results.

Excellent Paid Version. So Much Fun & Easy

I’ve been using paid version of Photo Lab Pro for over two years. There are many cool, easy to use options in this cool app.. As an artist, I need to tweak my art and photos, i.e., remove any spots or blur out the background...and I can easily accomplish this with this app! This app does repeatedly interrupt you, asking for your ‘volunteer’ review, which is endlessly annoying (Most Apps do that). So, I’m hoping that my honest review now will end those multiple, unwelcome intrusions. I love how you can take a photo and enhance the contrast, brightness, even colors. As an artist, I found Photo Lab Pro user friendly, however, I am frustrated by certain options requiring a human face only, to use. They won’t accept my dog’s face, or a human face turned slightly away. Fix this! Also, I am hoping a more advanced version for those of us who are REALLY INTO this app/ are professionals will be developed. I would LOVE that. Try this app, you will love it!

Difficult to quickly find desired effect without signing in to a data mining platform.

Unless I'm using this incorrectly, I have to scroll through thousands of other peoples photos in order to find an appropriate affect to enhance my photo. The earlier version had fewer options with no animation available, but showed each effect only once, with the same model used in each photo. Also was much easier to find in order to use them again. Many of these original photo options are either no longer available or I just can't find them in the cluster of often repeated images. I lose patience sifting through Photos of thousands of strangers just to find an effect that will make a friend laugh.

Also, because this app was purchased, I don't understand why I need to sign in to have my data mined and shared through Facebook, Instagram & Google. If by signing in, I would gain access to a more organized, usable product; I clearly paid for an an enormous time waster.

This is fun if you're fortunate enough to stumble upon an effect that works for your photo within the hour.
