Ratings and Reviews
Two pictures are better than one with this sophisticated image editor, which lets you blend photos to make artistic new creations. Just choose a foreground and background image, then adjust and enhance them to make eye-catching double-exposures, silhouettes—almost any combination you can imagine. Smart erasers, custom brushes, and robust editing tools make it easy to remove the picture elements you don’t want while achieving just the right effects with those you do.
The perfect photo editing App
If you are needing an app to blend pics together, insert a picture inside a picture, erase someone or something out of a picture, this is the app you need to spend money on. This app is so cool I'm going to use it like crazy now.
I spent a great deal of time on the App Store looking for an app that would let me edit pictures the way I wanted. I downloaded a few apps. One just didn't work, another one wanted me to pay way more money than I wanted to spend just to do one thing and another did something else I wanted, so basically I'd have four apps to do one thing? That's when I totally remembered I had bought this app on my phone and hadn't used it since I got it about 2 months ago (I've been busy, so shush). This app was all I needed.
Having the ability to put together four different pictures into one picture is worth every penny I spent on this app.
Incredible. Must Buy.
Literally I had spent an hour trying to find a way to integrate one photo on my iPad into another. I finally saw this review online and thought for $1.99 it would be worth it just to figure out a way to get this one simple humorous photo done.
I had a very usable product finished in less than 60 seconds! I was stunned at how easy it was. The process is simple and obvious to follow, with Foreground and Background menu selections right up front.
I quickly found menu selections to further edit. After laying the Foreground onto the Background, you can easily and precisely size it to the proportion and size you want relative to the background. Further you can use two fingers to then spread (“magnify”) the images keeping the same perspective you just sized, and more precisely “erase” around the edges of the foreground if you want,which reveals the background original image behind it.
There are other useful tools that are equally easy and intuitive to use, and then you can “flatten” the edited layers into one image. It can then be exported by message, email, and to the web.
This is one of the best Apps I’ve ever used and an incredibly efficient time saver that also results in a quality finished product. I don’t know which is more remarkable, its ease of use and tools, or the price of $1.99!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
