Editors’ Notes

With a minimal interface and a wealth of inspired photo-altering tools, VSCO is one of our all-time favorite photography apps. Behind the crisp design, there’s easy-to-use editing tools, a vast range of stylish film-like presets, and social features that connect us with fellow photographers. VSCO is a must-have app for absolutely anyone who takes pictures.

Best Photo Editor; Needs to eliminate white background


I’ve been using VSCO to start editing amateur photography a few years and now I’m a professional photographer with clients. I still use VSCO for it’s power and simplicity. I loved them because they were one of a few editors at the time that didn't’ compress the quality of image and could edit in RAW. The expansion of Community and Discover features made it pleasantly more social.

However, a few months ago (or even a year ago) they switched to an all white background. This hurts my eyes when looking at my Studio and doesn’t give colors full justice. It seems VSCO is aware editing photos should use a dark background - that’s the case when editing with filters or tools. But Studio and Discover tabs are unappealing with white background and I tend to exit the app sooner because of this. iOS’ Smart Invert colors (the only loophole I’m aware of) doesn’t work with VSCO images. Please revert to a darker background or make the option available to us. Long-time user here. Would gladly pay one-time fee for Strength, Character, & Warmth tool instead of subscription. Thanks!

Going downhill...


I’ve used and loved VSCO for YEARS but over the last year I’m getting more and more ready to find a new editing program because of one major flaw. I edit a large volume of photos and the easiest way for me to cull is to go through my camera roll and import to VSCO from there. Trying to cull photos from within VSCO is cumbersome and frustrating, but for a long time importing from my camera roll has worked great. But now, more and more frequently I’m finding that if I import more than a dozen or so images, when I then try to open VSCO it freezes and force quits because it can’t handle loading the imported images and I have to delete the app and re-download to get it to work again. Which means losing all the image previously edited and having to start over. Currently having to do this for the second time in the last month and extremely annoyed. I’m not just a VSCO user, I’m a customer - I’ve bought many app presets, desktop collections, I use VSCO X. But unless they figure out how to fix this in an update soon I’ll be looking for a new editing program because it’s not worth the frustration, hassle, and wasted time anymore.
