Ratings and Reviews
Prisma’s gorgeous pictures are almost too cool for words, but if we had to pick one to describe our 2016 iPhone App of the Year, it’d be “sublime.” Powerful AI re-creates our photos as breathtaking images that really look hand-painted, complete with natural textures and stylish, spontaneous strokes. The only thing more fun than experimenting with the effects is showing off the results to our friends.
Could be so much better
When I first signed up for this app, I had no complaint. The filters are beautiful. I love looking at other users’ photos.
But there’s this thing that’s been happening consistently for the last five months. People are getting banned for no reason. They are then told by a prisma representative that they were flagged by multiple users for inappropriate content. But the offending photo is something like a tree, a building or a road. It makes no sense. And it takes days and tons of e-mails back and forth to resolve the issue. When prisma support finally realizes the user has been unfairly banned, their explanation for what happened seems like a cop-out. The solution to this issue seems obvious. Have a prisma rep check out the “offending” photo before banning. But it’s still going on.
I paid for a year’s subscription to prisma before this started happening, so I’m still an active user. But I probably won’t pay again once the year’s up, if this issue isn’t resolved. If you’re thinking of paying for the full prisma app and you’ve made it through this whole rant, you might want to think twice.
Not bad, but…
This is a cool app. It's got a lot of cool filters. Your images won't really look like paintings though. They'll look like altered Photoshop images but they'll still look really cool.
I had a crash issue just before writing this review. I fixed it by shutting down all apps on my iPad and then restarting the iPad. That seemed to fix the problem.
I think the problem I have with this app really isn't with this app in particular but with all photography apps now. They all seem to want a subscription. I already pay a subscription fee. I pay $10 a month for Lightroom and Photoshop. Currently the most advanced photo editing software on the market. The iPad and iPhone just don't have the processing power to keep up with Lightroom and Photoshop. So apps on these platforms perform one or two functions or a group of simpler functions that Photoshop performs... but demand 1/3 or 1/2 of the monthly price. If you pay the yearly subscription for Prisma you're still paying about 1/6 of the price for filters that you have no control over. No adjustments, no sliders. Yes, you can adjust the opacity of the filter, but that's it.
Having said all that, I pay the yearly fee. It's taken some of the cool out of the app but I use it a couple times a month. At two times a month I'm paying about ¢80 per use.
Take that into consideration.
It will give mostly satisfying results overall.
Take that into consideration too.
