Ratings and Reviews
Best of its kind but not cheap
I use an old freebie app called wondercam that honestly beat most of the cheesy selfie paid apps available. Unfortunately it stopped working on newer iphones. After downloading tons of cheesy selfie touchup apps I ran across Lensa. Holy cow this app has superior quality effects! Best selfie app I’ve tried!
It’s easy to adjust and turn down some of the effects. It’s not overly complicated to use. I don’t like it when all effects are so souped up it looks obvious and fake. Also most selfie apps have bad quality effects. Lensa magicmode and effects are excellent. Lensa lets me adjust perfectly. Even with the effects souped up it looks professional. No cheesy blurring or smears.
I also love that I can go in settings and make this open in camera mode! Now I can use Lensa as my camera too! It would be cool in future versions to have an option to apply magic correction after you take a photo or a default setting of effects. Then after the picture is taken it apply’s the effects automatically. Adjust from there or even reset if you want.
Lastly as a guy thank you for making a gender neutral app icon lol. No cheesy flowery pink camera icon etc
The only downside to this app is cost. It requires a subscription, but for me, the app is good enough it’s worth the price. Granted it’s expensive for many people. An app of this calibre requires good programming. These developers need to eat too.
I do not see why people are impressed with this.
I use Facetune 2 Andrew pay for that app. I read the gleaming reviews on this particular app and I have to say I am not in the least impressed.
I do work with professional photos and I thought this would be a great app based off of the reviews for editing. All I can do with the photo was hit auto adjust and there were options to slide coloring around and things like that but I need an option that allows me to airbrush. This does not offer that. I do not do heavy airbrushing but I need some control and I need to be able to pop color a little bit and this did not do it when I use the auto adjustment setting there were parts of the photos that just looked over saturated. Again I am not impressed I am going to have to figure out how to remove this before they charge me $30 for a year. By the way it mentions that it is $7.99 per month but it doesn’t give you the option to select the month it only gives you the option of a year. So now I’ve got to find how to remove this.
There was a background button and a face button but both were in dark gray and I could not press the buttons to see what they did. I have never removed an app this quickly from my phone I literally downloaded it messed around with it for about 15 minutes and could not get it to do what I needed it to do.

Hello, it is the Lensa team! One time ago you installed our app but, unfortunately, didn’t like it. We would like to propose you install Lensa again and try it now!
During the time, we actively worked on improving Lensa and added many new features to the app:) For example, you can apply the “Magic correction” button and not only make retouch on one click but also change retouch intensity, you can blur and replace a background in the photo, change settings of selective colors, apply various filters, one of the grain effect option and more other features!
In the review, you noticed that “face” and “background” adjustments weren’t active in the photo. It could happen if the face wasn’t detected in the photo: when the person is photographed from afar, photos don’t have high quality or part of the face isn’t visible, our algorithms cannot guarantee the quality of processing so Lensa adjustments automatically become inactive. At the same time, general photo settings are available for all the photos :) We are so sorry that you didn’t try all Lensa features when you downloaded the app for the first time.
Also, you wrote us about an “airbrush” feature: Lensa doesn’t include the option but the retouch is processed in one click with the “Magic Correction” button. If you didn’t like the results of automatic retouch, you can change settings manually, these adjustments are available in the “Face” tab. To get more information about all Lensa features, you can read the frequently asked questions section (FAQ) which is located in the “Settings” of Lensa.
What takes of subscription, we provide several subscription options, not only an annual one, and you can choose the most convenient option within the app. You can also activate a trial period and try the full app version but please note that an annual subscription follows it, these conditions are always displayed on the screen before the start of the trial. If you need to change or cancel the subscription, please follow the page on the Apple official website: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202039. We are sorry but app developers can’t manage users’ subscriptions on their side, the option is not provided.
Anyway, we will be glad if you try all functions in the updated version of Lensa! So, we would like to offer you free photos for editing :) The photos can be added via our support. To contact us, please follow “Settings” —> “Send feedback”—> “Contact Support” and attach the screenshot of the review. We are looking forward to your letter!
I truly want to love this app but....
I want nothing more than to fully love this app because it honestly is one of the best free photos editing apps in the App Store. But there is ONE major flaw that I just can’t stand and is a constant source of annoyance for myself and I’m sure many others....
To whom it may concern in application development,
Why in the world are users only allowed to replace or edit the background in only the pictures that the “face detecting” technology actually detects a face...? This feature only accurately works 60% of the time (and that is being generous) & it doesn’t really make sense that users can’t change or replace the background in pictures that don’t have a person in close proximity front and center facing the camera. I have active Poshmark, Mercari & EBay Sellers accounts & it would be a blessing to be able to use the superior background replacement & alteration ability featured in this app on my merchandise photos instead of having to constantly set up new and aesthetically pleasing backgrounds every other photoshoot.

Hello, thanks for your feedback! Please let us clarify the situation: Lensa is focused on selfie processing so some adjustments maybe not available on photos without people. At the same time, we constantly work on improving our algorithms and add new features to Lensa:)
Then, we would like to ask you if it is interesting for you to have 10-15 minutes chat with us:) We want to show you some early concepts that we’re working on and to get your feedback. If you would like to take part, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
