Ratings and Reviews
Update April 2018: Finally the tools I’ve been waiting for in Shapes! Makes all the difference! Some helpful tweaks in the other modules as well, especially Patterns. The app has officially graduated from a sometimes useful toy to an invaluable part of the toolkit!
Update: The app keeps improving. In particular the Shapes module is coming close to a valuable aid. The window for refining the image finally offers some flexibility in removing unwanted bits. Desperately needs an Undo button and size control for the eraser. It still produces weirdly angular results that require much adjusting in AI, almost to the point of negating the benefits of being mobile.
The pattern module is a nice addition to the repertoire, if rather primitive thus far.
Original Review: Fail to see how the Looks redesign is a move forward; the old arrangement gave more information at a glance. Might be useful to toggle between the two, since preferences differ. On the plus side, it's nice to be able to use one's own photos for the test picture. Would be even better if you could export a photo of the filtered image.
I love the idea of these apps and appreciate the reduced clutter of having them combined in one place, but they remain more promise than performance. Their application is too narrow. It's frustrating to keep track of which feature is supported by which app(s), to create something then find out it's not supported in the app you need it for.
This app does exactly what it says it does and what I needed it to do, which was to transfer my drawn sketches into Photoshop and being able to efficiently and quickly clean it up, get all my necessary lines and shapes clear, erase anything I didn't want, name them, and automatically load to Photoshop library for me to place. It's been fantastic and has saved me a lot of work and time. Every page was done three weeks ago and am in my next phase of production. Looks like I will be meeting my goals/timeframe. Only thing is this efficiency can only be done with Photoshop CC and not older versions of Photoshop, which is what I have. So it forced me to subscribe to the Adobe photographer package, which is $9.99 a month. But it's been worth it for me. Thanks for coming up with this app. I didn't have crash problems like the other reviewers. Fantastic and very efficient and effective app--oh, you smart people over at Adobe! Thank you!
Awesome! Love the Features!
I absolutely love this app. It is great for using your camera to take pictures and use the different tools to highlight a font, for example, and then it will search for the most similar one available in the Fonts store and everytime I have used it, it finds an identical or nearly identical one. Another great feature allows you to export patterns from a photograph and this has been a really neat tool. Used it to take photos of some fabrics that had some awesome patterns and colors, but the only downside was the color didn’t always come out accurately, but that falls on the cell phone camera for not processing it properly. Lots of other great features too, but it is an awesome app to accompany the suite of programs in Adobe’s creative cloud.
