highlight recovery needed BADLY


hi Omer Shoor.
THANK YOU for making an app that processes raw. my Sony raw files typically open just fine, and it has many useful features, but with the iPad pro I am searching for a reliable app for processing my photos in a mobile environment. I believe that someday soon ALL photo editing will be possible with a tablet without ever having to use a desktop. currently, Adobe does not offer a solution that reliably edits OR processes raw natively. Photogene4 does though. and it could be the first to really make native raw edits on iPad doable. but the experience is lacking. it sorely needs a way to recover highlights. it would also be nice if it allowed for copying edits from one photo to another. I realize that the developers of most apps like this are a small team, but I would be willing to pay more for a pro version of photo gene if it made some of these features possible.
it would also be super amazing if somehow X-Rite's color chart technology could be incorporated. I believe they have opened up API's that allow that to be used to calibrate color in apps, Cam Ranger uses it.
is it possible also to upgrade the max import/export size? with cameras being released with max resolutions of 24-36 megapixels, this would really improve my work through your app.

THE app when you need precision!!


Love the presets, the watermark and the copyright features; this is the app I use when I need precision, technical and/or artistic. The only thing I can not find now that I THOUGHT used to be an option was making a thumbprint of a photo; whether it was or not (and forgive me if I am just overlooking it), that is my only request. If I want to use a photo as my watermark, I need to be able to make that pic tiny enough to use - as small as, say, my initials; also, there are times when I need to actually print a tiny little picture, even if it will waste a lot of space on my photo paper... It's worth it if you are trying to make a card or scrapbooking project, trust me, and print options for iPhones and iPads used without a computer are still relatively limited, so the options pretty much HAVE to come from the photo editing apps.

I still use the old version for my phone most of the time because it was so simple and easy to navigate, but this is truly one sweet app.

My favorite Photo Editor


After trying a few top rated apps, I find that Photogene is the best one for me. I especially like the feature that let's me select the default resolution to resize to automatically when I save. The crop is fast and easy, I frequently use "Lighten Shadows" & "Darken Highlights" and it is so easy to see and evaluate the results of the adjustments immediately, & to change or reset if needed. Making fine adjustments has been facilitated. Other adjustments that are new to me in this app, called "Clarity" and "Vibrance" are very effective and often used instead of the multiple other controls that could achieve similar results but would take more time. I have used "Photoshop" for many years on PC, and have it on iPad, but Photogene is much quicker to use, more intuitive and fun, & does 99.9% of what I need for editing digital photos on iPad. THANKS TEAM for this professional tool at such an affordable price.
