Customer Reviews

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. :(

Too much fun

Love this app. I've lost many hours of my life playing in this thing.

I particularly love that once you have created the perfect effect for a photo you can save (thus saving me hours of redoing it - lose hours, save hours.) it as a "formula" and reuse it with a touch of a button.

The combinations are endless. It gives such a creative outlet for iPhone photography.

I do appreciate that one reviewer complained that they could not stack 2 photos together instead only layer effects. It would be fantastic if you could save a photo as a layer/effect and add to another photo. That would be even better. This could then be used to save textures we have photographed ourselves and apply them to future photos. That would bring this already amazing app to a whole new level.

Not what I expected

When I saw this on the free app of the week, I was excited. I love editing photos and layering photos is one of my favorite ways of creating art. I thought this would be an advanced photo layering app I could utilize.

However, you cannot layer 2 of your own photos. You can only choose a photo and then put a layer of a texture over it.
It works for that, but I was extremely disappointed I can not layer two photos I took together.
