Ratings and Reviews
I stumbled upon this software by accident but it is now among my top favorites. It’s super easy to use, has a wide variety of effects and the overlay effects are of superb quality.
I’ve been a photographer for over 25 years and embarrassingly I know zilch about Adobe Photoshop. This app makes it easy to get the looks I want without being complex. This software has allowed me to step up my photography to the next level. Some of my Friends have noticed my work is different and the effects are not cheesy if done correctly.
Some users may find the subscription price to be overpriced but in comparison to the desktop version, it’s WELL WORTH the price. I saved money by taking advantage of the annual price rate. Upon expiration I will DEFINITELY purchase another year.
If you're a videographer, the software also offers a wide range of sounds, cinematic sound effects, finishing LUTS and more.
Get it! You’ll love it!
I had been following this company for some time considering buying some of their overlays for computer based photo editing when I got a chance. But only recently found out about their app. I have to say this app is immensely impressive and sold me on their other products.
This app is a powerful tool to make your images more dynamic. I cannot recommend it enough. And if you are a professional videographer and/or photographer, definitely check out their more substantial adobe based editing effects.
Not Worth The Price
This app has a single major flaw that makes it essentially unusable. You can't zoom the base, background image to assist with placing the overlay effect. You're stuck with your image crammed full scale onto the screen of your iPhone. Also, the app only works in portrait mode on the phone. So, you can't rotate the phone to work in landscape orientation, even if you're working on an image that was taken in landscape orientation. As a result, the finished product is, well, amateurish at best. Now, of course we're talking about using an app to overlay false effects onto an image. But if you want your results to look even remotely realistic, precise placement of the effect matters. And If you're lucky enough to be able to place your effect in the right spot, you can almost guarantee that, 9 times out of 10 when you lift your finger from the screen, the effect will move, if only just a little bit. That's not something one would expect from a subscription-based app that costs $12 per year to use. I recommend looking elsewhere.
Developer Response ,
FIXED! You can now pinch to zoom on the background image to assist with placing the effect precisely where you want it. Thanks for your feedback from a few years ago, Mike. Would love to hear, how are all the new updates working for you?
