A simplistic and creative app for combining images with masks and different blend modes on your iPhone and iPad.
While the use and basic idea is very simple, there's almost an endless list of things you can do with it. Some things worth highlighting are:
- Multi Exposure
- Choosing where and how much to apply of filter from other apps.
- Adding or replacing objects.
- Adding textures.
- Creating your own personalised filters with overlays
- Watermarking or adding logos
Image Blender outputs the full resolution without any limits to the size of your source image.

Ratings and Reviews
Reliable, Functional and Intuitive.
My first and most important bullet point of this review: • It is not a subscription. Thank you to the developers of this app for not doing what so many other of my once-favorite editing apps have done, by switching to a $/week or $/month ‘service.’ This app is valuable and I use it often, even more so now that my tools have become more limited. The blending modes leave nothing to be desired (at least for my uses), pretty much anything in that department can be achieved with this app so long as you get creative with your layers. I’ve created multi-layered compositions with this app by inverting things and flattening one by one, and saving as a PNG to avoid compression. It’s amazing. The actual app itself can handle surprisingly large file sizes for an app, it’s taken some big images and chugged along like a champ even on my older iPhone models I’ve had. It does one thing and does it well. No unnecessary or unwanted extras. I would recommend this app to anyone, it’s a gem and should be part of your app toolbelt if you’re doing any editing on your mobile device.
Update 2021: This is pretty much the only app I have now that doesn’t charge me premiums or timed subscriptions to use its basic features.
Best App Ever
I love making digital collages and Blender is a really good app for doing this type of digital art without having to be photoshop savvy. It is fun and easy to use and truly is my favorite app; I have made several cards using this app and the finished printed projects look professional.
It has been around for a long time and I have spent many happy hours on this app creating all kinds of projects ranging from cards to place-cards and bookmarks. It can handle png images and high resolution images without losing any quality.
For those of us who feel overwhelmed by photoshop this is the user-friendly app to use where your creative projects will display a professional look!
Using regularly since Nov 2011
I’ve been using the app when I got my first iPod Touch with a camera and it was awesome. Then moved up to a 4s and the app stayed very much the same-awesome.
I’m currently using a 6s and Image Blender has always been one of the strongest workhorses in my photo app line up. It’s fast. It’s smart. It does what other apps may include as features, except IB specializes in the one thing, blending layers. I love that they never even bothered to update the original looking app icon, only performance improvements.
The only thing I wish it could improve is the masking tool. The brush to create masks is very limited in function in regards to size and edges. I don’t recall it always being there so if it’s newer it will only get better I bet. If I need to I prep images in another app to do sharp masking but NOTHING works better at traditional layer blending modes easier and better than image blender.
Dear develops, seriously tho, can you work on the brush for masking?
Thanks for years of awesome photo editing help.
