My Experience With Hipstamatic X

Now a Lifetime member of the Hipstamatic Makers Club, I installed "X" the day after it was released, signed up for the 7-day free trial. Wanting to experience the app on its own merits, I uninstalled "Classic", then I put "X" to test. After several days, I reinstalled "Classic" and all the HipstaPaks (literally, ALL) I had previously purchased. "X" connected to those purchases and made them available within the app through the Classic Gear button on the Camera Shelf. Once the free trial ended, I still retained my "Classic" gear.

Things I like: (1) the developers are extremely responsive and helpful throughout; (2) Hipstamatic X is strictly a shooter (you CAN edit photos shot within the app); (3) a good UI; (4) quality photos; (5) simple to use. Plus, I can still use "Classic" on its own too. I'm trusting this app will have good support and quality updates.

Only thing missing is letting us use our own presets?

I know there is this idea that we will just take photos with this app, but when you let me import a photo I like that I shot with Camera+ or something, and allow me to apply *your* camera presets to the photo, but don't let *me* apply the camera preset that *I* defined myself, I think I must be missing something.

Either remove this edit feature entirely and demand we only take photos with our/your camera presets, or just finish the job and let me import something I composed and exposed in another camera application so I can apply my sweet framed tinto 1:1 preset so I can have some continuity in collections of images I share. 🤷🏻‍♂️

p.s. I'm paying the membership, but I don't think I will for much longer. I'd rather make my own preset in Lr or something like Snapseed. Between Google and Vsco having film simulations that are identifiable, the novelty of using "Kodiak Orca" or something wears off pretty fast.

Longtime fan & user

I love Hipstamatic X, and I loved Hipstamatic before it. As someone who made his bones in the analog camera days, the dirtiness and artifacts that we can bring to the image are fantastic. I've made lens and filter and paper combinations that remind me of papers and processes I used to use, and I will label custom combos to reflect it.

I could go on and on. This is one of the photos/photo editing apps that has lasted at least 10 years in my toolbox, unlike many other photo apps which showed their limitations to me much sooner and were cut from rotation.

I have *one request* though for the makers. It's the only request I've thought to make and all these years of using their apps. Sometimes I just want to save a photo, after filters have been applied etc., but it's like *five clicks* to simply save it to my camera roll. That's way too many. Is it possible, once we finish editing a photo, to get an option to simply save it directly to our camera roll? To save it and bypass the "next" and "share online" and so on? Really, go through the process and take a look at how many clicks it takes just to save a photo to the camera roll. Oof. Now imagine editing five photos and wanting to save them to the camera roll. That's a whole lot of extra time & clicks that really don't need to be spent!

Thanks again for your work!
