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.
I enjoy using Image Blender with an original photo and a filtered version of the same photo for painterly effects. Recently I’ve been using IB for double exposures and masking. A great app with mesmerizing features that destress me.
After updating iPhone X to iOS 12, there seemed to be a problem. I emailed the developer and had a quick response with suggestions! Followup emailed helped me identify that my recent RAW photos were not appearing on-screen to make a selection. Now I know to process the RAW photos before loading into IB.
Adding more interest to my images
I love to use Image Blender with Waterlogue, which is a program that turns your photos into watercolor paintings. By blending the original with the watercolor image, I can get a more detailed painting. And this program is so easy to use!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
