Very good editor
I borderline on 5 or 4 stars because this is almost a perfect graphics editor. For the price, it is the best app I’ve found. I’ve used it to create multiple collages, put fire into my fireplace, create funny picture edits for my kids, and more. Tools available are so much like Photoshop and I can do it all from my iPad.
Things that would make this a perfect score: ability to have more layers (it maxes out somewhere above 20 so who needs 20 separate layers, but I did last week in a massive collage. I tried to work around the layer issue with merge down but it is a quirky merge or I just don’t understand it.
Also, the ability to move part of an image seems basic but I can’t figure out how to float the selection and move part of a layer elsewhere or better yet make a new layer out of the selection. A workaround I have is to duplicate the layer and crop it to the piece that I want.
Very extremely cool app! Thank you! I needed something with the power of GIMP but on an iPad and I’ve used this now for 2+ years and love it.
Bugs and Updates
Overall the app use it all the time, but there are a few things I would change. Like, when I get to certain amount of layers, I can’t add anymore. Then I can’t finish what I’m working on without a lot more work. One other issue is the layer merge. It was fine not too ago, now, when I try to merge two items, one just disappears! I really like this app, but these are two things I would really like to see changed. Another issue I have found is that inside the app, the project is super low quality, it is fine when I save it to my phone, but I can hardly see to work on it!
I really enjoy the layout and workflow of this app more than the other layering/masking apps available. It's intuitive and fun to work with. I would love it even more, use it all the time, and give it 5 stars if all the tools worked. The smudge tool and a few of the other tools and features do not save. They look like they're working and the image looks good after hitting "apply", but then they disappear in the saved image and in the flattened image. Frustrating to spend a lot of time getting something just right and then having all that work disappear. I've spent hours trying to figure out what's going on thinking I wasn't doing something in the right order -- watching and reading tutorials and asking people I know who work with the app if they have been able to get certain features to work. Nada. I finally realized that these features just don't work right now and that the app may need an update. I'm very much hoping that this app will be kept "alive". It's really a beauty when all the features work.
