Being a photographer on the go, I use this app almost all the time between editing my photographs with Lightroom and VSCO. The flares and enhancements available are brilliant, and it certainly brings a certain edge to a number of my images. If an iPadOS version was released, however, I would happily rate this app as 5 stars...!

A unique app that really enhanced atmosphere

I love this app, having owned it for around 2yrs. I love the way you can drop realistic effects in and adjust them to look like they were taken in camera. Keep up the good work.

Minor addition I would love is to be able to handle layers and erase. For example if I add a fog layer, it might overlap parts of a photo that I don't want it to. If I could brush erase the effect on a layer, it would allow fine tuning. Also being able to add multiple layers of effect with erase to blend them better would be great.

Thanks for the suggestions. Erase/Mask tool is now available to LD Unlimited members in version 4.3!

Great bathroom time filler

One of the most used apps on my phone since I've downloaded it. One thing missing for me would be a separate folder in Photos so your our creations are more easily accessible. Great bathroom time filler!
