My go-to photo enhancing app!
With so many features, the Color Story app is my first and only stop when it comes to getting my photos ready to share on social media or even just close family and friends. A library of filters, but also the editing tools you would see in photoshop like curves, brightening and sharpening, just to name a few. The creators are fast to respond to customers, which is an example of how much thought they put into not only this app but their customers. You’ll LOVE a Color Story!
2 biggish user issues, otherwise ⭐️ awesome ⭐️
The only editing app I use, and love using, but considered rating lower due to two issues I experience using the app. As issue 1. (below) renders app useless, it would’ve been 2 stars, but for saving grace of app being otherwise awesome when said issue doesn’t occur.
Issue 1. Very very often when I load an image to edit the tool/nav bar at the bottom with filters/effects/tools doesn’t load at all or best case, takes several mins to appear. Have been using the app for years now and this feature has always been glitchy - have hoping for a fix with every update, but sadly continues to be a frequent problem. At the end of the day it can be a premium app but no point having and paying for it if you can’t access the tools!
Issue 2. If you purchase ACS+ you should not only have access to packs to date, but all future pack releases - if already the case there are issues accessing new packs for some ACS+ subscribers.
Lastly a suggestion; it would be incredible to be able to isolate areas of a photo when applying filters, rather than only a feature of the manual adjustment tools. Also find this isolation tool quite difficult to use.
Would also love to see features like layering, collages and double exposures etc in future updates - would make it a legit one stop editing shop!
Thanks for your amazing work guys & girls, hope this feedback is helpful to perpetuating the awesomeness ⭐️
Used to be my favourite app
This used to be my favourite & most used app, but after the most recent update it is no longer very good. Previously you could use the “Brighten” tool to lighten or darken various spots in an image, but now you can only brighten/darken a single spot and if you try to brighten/darken subsequent spots they no longer save. So this function is now useless. Also moving the adjustment bar right to the bottom of the screen is inconvenient and awkward to use now, it’s previous position was MUCH better. Also the adjustments on all of the tools are now WAY too sensitive, and need to be much more gradual. I used to happily recommend this app to everyone who asked how I edited my photos, but sadly I can’t now. I now need to find a new editing app as this one is now unusable. Fingers crossed the developers consider reverting it back to its former glory.
