even though i can’t afford to buy the premium which makes me sad because I can’t remove the watermark but overall, the app is still good to edit especially for retro effects

Thanks for your comment!

Picture and Video Quality!

Filters are okay but the quality of photos and videos after the filter is applied is blurry and grainy. The built-in camera app also produce a grainy and blurry photos/videos. Overall, the app is good it’s just really the quality. Hope you will fix this soon as I am really starting to love the app.

Hello. You may just switch off the Grain filter which is automatically gets on when you open Prequel. Have a nice day!

I’ve been using ‘Prequel’ since January 2019. It has some unique effects like ‘VHS, leaks, etc. Prequel, since in the latest update you allow us to change the text like for instance in the bubble gum filter effect, I would love it if you allow us to change the date for the ‘VHS’ effect too! Keep making amazing effects guys stay safe!!💕✨😃

Hey there! Your words are a huge inspiration for us. Our team is happy to find out that you love Prequel.

Also, we'd like to share with you one trick. You can change the text in Bubble gum or in Story by tapping on the effect and selecting 'Text'. There you can tap any text you want ;)
