Too Easy. Who Knew I Was That Good?

Okay. I know I take pretty pictures. But, WOWZERS! What this app just helped Me create is phenomenal Artwork! I’m really impressed. And that’s saying something. I used to do portrait photography. But this just helped me turn a snapshot of a simple bouquet into something I would like for a poster on my wall. Thanks guys! The printing doesn’t seem that expensive either. Although, I have only just ordered not received my new artworks. I will do an update when my stuff arrives.

Constant lockup and crashing

When it works, it's awesome. But 9 times out of 10 it locks up just a few seconds into launching the app. Disclosure: I've got a large photo album of 150,000+ pics on my connected iCloud photo album. But I’m rocking an iPhone 11 Pro Max with 512GB running iOS 13.2. I bought Graphite based on reviews. But I’m so disappointed that it fails to work for me. I have produced a few stunning photos but it’s only when I am in the mood to persist through the incessant crashes and lockups. I spent good money on unlocking the app for life. Wish I didn’t do that. I see the potential but the issues prevent me from recommending this app until the devs figure this one out. Until then, I guess I’m eating this expense.

Terrific Drawing/Texture App

I have tried to find an app that would turn my photos into attractive line drawings and have been disappointed on numerous occasions.

Finally, this is ones that seemed to have had some real artists on staff. I love these results I get with this. And it worked on a side range of different types of photos instead of just a few.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback. We completely understand that you have been disappointed by the other apps, since to our best knowledge, there does not exists one good line drawing app on the store that tries to mimic the way an artists or human would create a drawing. We are super happy that you like our app and especially our fx-designer is more than happy that you appreciate his efforts.

Thank you!
