Great-but double exposure isn’t working!

I love this app, I’ve used it for years! Unfortunately, the double exposure tool isn’t working at the moment. In the past, it has worked perfectly fine but within the past few days the added image can not be seen on the image. I hope they can sort this problem out soon!

Simply amazing

I use this app on my iPad, MacBook and IPhone and it's just amazing! I think it's the best editing app out there, because you can do so many wonderful things. The bad, horrid hate comments are just lying people who found 1 tiny thing wrong with the app and whined about it because it's not perfect. It IS perfect in my personal opinion, maybe not for others but for me it is. 💕

This app is amazing! You can draw on photos and add effects and overlays and it looks realistic and it's all for free! Pixlr is a great, creative app that you can do lots of different things on to make your photos look even better than before! I really recommend this app and the web version is even better!
