It’s still a keeper

Over the past 5 years or so, I have bought way too many photo editing apps. I’m currently conducting a ruthless inventory of the lot, trashing unused apps, free-or-not, focused on the fact that Adobe and Apple apps cover a broad, reliable spectrum of almost everything I need.
Note the “almost” clarifier.
For fast and effective selective coloring of b/w images that come alive with the addition of color to a distinct and vibrant feature ... eye color, landscape flowers, etc. ... this app is as fast, effective, simple-to-use and ready to go as it gets.
Big kudos and much appreciation from a lifelong photojournalist of over 40 years. I am now, at long last, going back to select and edit 100,000 or so personal “art” photos gathered while I was on assignment for magazines, archived until whenever, God willing, I could go back to revisit. That would be “now.” With the select apps I’m retaining, this being one of several definite keepers, I’m having a blast.

For and easiest APP for highlighting color

I have downloaded several apps with the intent of simply highlighting a singular color in a picture. This app for me is by far the easiest to create those images...a black and white image with a pop of pink from a recent women's march for example. perfect.

The Best!

I've tried countless "Color Splash" photo-editing apps and this one is by far the best! There's so many options and it's a breeze to use, with no more worrying about tiny areas on a photo that need more detail. HIGHLY recommend!
