Customer Reviews

Photo saving app.

I got this app in an effort to edit some pictures I took and didn’t feel like using my phone to edit since I wanted to see the pictures on a bigger scale on my laptop.
This app turned out to be amazing and even with the little options it has with the free version I was still able to make a drastic change to the pictures that needed editing.
Couldn’t have asked for a better app on such short notice!

This app saved me!

My computer with Photoshop and Lightroom crashed and I had a deadline to sort through and edit thousands of photos. This app saved me! It worked beautifully! The free version doesn’t have everything you might need, but it had way more than I was expecting and did a fast and great job on all those photos. (And I NEVER submit app reviews, so this is saying a lot!)

GET IT

If you’re looking for a GREAT photo editing app, get this one!!!!! So easy to use and it makes your pictures look amazing. I’m not a photographer and I have no experience editing pictures (outside of instagram) and this was a great helper for starting out! LOVE IT
