Editors’ Notes

Turn your favorite snapshots into stunning works of art with this accessible image editor. Combine endless layers of unique filters, textures, and enhancements, then adjust your changes with precision—or return to your original photo with a tap. An uncluttered interface makes it easy to save sophisticated transformations and apply them to other pictures, then you can share your creations through social media and beyond.


Nice app, but to what end?

Well made app, but very inconvenient to use and rather gimmicky.

The image adjustment tools (brightness, shadows, etc...) easily rival Snapseed. In fact this tool offers both vibrance and RGB color adjustments, both completely missing from Snapseed. But they are buried deep inside the app, so forget about using this as a convenient image editor.

Unlike Snapseed it fails to offer two critical features. It does not allow you to save over existing images. Since Apple introduced lossless editing (original is preserved by IOS) this is a miss. It also does not remember your adjustments for an image (which Snapseed does). This feature is what editing images is all about. Imagine if all your edits in Photoshop and Lightroom were thrown away after you hit save and you could never tweak those same adjustments again. Yes, you can save your adjustments as a formula, but why not just remember?

Lastly, I question the artistic benefits of this app. Arbitrarily picking layers of adjustments is a little like holding the shutter button down for 10 minutes while taking photos. Sure you may get one or two winners, but it's all down to chance.

P.S. What is up with all the birds in the sample photos? Clearly those were added in post, but I couldn't find the bird button. :(



Stackables provides creatives unlimited options for stylizing images using some of the best looking and most comprehensive collections of textures and filters available anywhere. The app has a dazzling array of editing features that allow for complete artistic control. Stackables includes many editable formulas, and allows users to create and save custom formulas for repeated use. The app's companion app, Formulas, extends the power and utility of the app making Stackable formulas accessible to those less inclined to master the intricacies of the Stackables app.

And customer service is top drawer. I experienced a problem yesterday with in-app purchases and received a response with a solution within about eight hours.

Thank you Stackables Team!
