Making such a difference to my business

PS Express allows me to share professional looking photos of my work taken on my phone! When we first opened our flower shop I thought for sure that I’d need to invest in a DSLR or bridge to make sure the photos I shared on my website and social media looked professional but thanks to ps express I can play with lighting, contrast, saturation, depth and sharpness all in post meaning I can use my business phone to take all of my photos, great when I’m on site installing like at a wedding or event and when I just want to grab a quick snap of my work before it leaves my shop, I’ve used a lot of phone based editing apps in the past but nothing compares to PS express! I’m never embarrassed to show customers my photos and have added them all over my digital presence. Definitely a great app and I’m only using the free version, haven’t felt the need to pay for anything extra!

Great, but without RAW and with Adverts

This a really useful editing tool. Probably the best free one there is. However, constant adverts to try and entice you into Adobe’s ‘Creative Cloud’ mars the experience a little. One thing missing at present is RAW support. This is a gaping hole for those that don’t want to be limited by shooting in JPEG. There are quite a few apps that enable shooting in RAW. Why doesn’t Adobe provide a serious one that offers RAW editing outside ‘Creative Cloud’. But If Adobe doesn’t do it soon, I expect some one else will. (Developers reading this, please take note).

What iPhoneographers would also really like is NOT the regular, not insignificant, monthly drain from my bank account of a ‘Creative cloud’ subsciption, but the option to buy separately Photoshop’s ‘Mix’ and ‘Fix’ for iPhone. £5 each should be reasonable, even if its an annual fee. An option to buy Ps Express without adverts for about the same would also be welcome.
Don’t get me wrong, ‘Creative Cloud’ is worth every penny, but for those with limited budget, Adobe, should offer another model until funds allow - without adverts, and with RAW support - and soon please !
