Ordered 2 Prints Immediately

This is very fun without having to go to art school! I love the customization ability which brings out the ‘artist’ in me! I ordered 2 prints immediately! They are not super budget friendly so I would suggest adding a SMALL size picture for less money, plus maybe postcard size without having to mail online! Who knows exactly who you have to send them to? So please do that- pricing makes a huge difference but I do think the quality will be very good with developer chosen.

Too Easy. Who Knew I Was That Good?

Okay. I know I take pretty pictures. But, WOWZERS! What this app just helped Me create is phenomenal Artwork! I’m really impressed. And that’s saying something. I used to do portrait photography. But this just helped me turn a snapshot of a simple bouquet into something I would like for a poster on my wall. Thanks guys! The printing doesn’t seem that expensive either. Although, I have only just ordered not received my new artworks. I will do an update when my stuff arrives.

We knew :) Thanks for the very positive feedback!

Constant lockup and crashing

When it works, it's awesome. But 9 times out of 10 it locks up just a few seconds into launching the app. Disclosure: I've got a large photo album of 150,000+ pics on my connected iCloud photo album. But I’m rocking an iPhone 11 Pro Max with 512GB running iOS 13.2. I bought Graphite based on reviews. But I’m so disappointed that it fails to work for me. I have produced a few stunning photos but it’s only when I am in the mood to persist through the incessant crashes and lockups. I spent good money on unlocking the app for life. Wish I didn’t do that. I see the potential but the issues prevent me from recommending this app until the devs figure this one out. Until then, I guess I’m eating this expense.
