There’s just one problem.
I do a little photography and this is an AMAZING app for editing my photos. I mean it’s really cool. But even if you aren’t a pro member you can’t even stick with the limited edits they allow you to use. It’s still trying to milk money even if you aren’t using it’s unlimited edits, because you can’t even save the photos you practice on just to experiment with the app. I used a couple of my photos to see just how much I’d really like it, and I really like it..but then as I attempted to save, it was telling me I had to go pro..like really? Just to save the edits that the app allowed me to use WITHOUT going pro, I can’t even save them?
So in order for me to be able to save the photos I edit I have to pay. I just don’t think it’s worth going through that. I’d be okay even having advertisements pop up and them saying I have to pay for the ads to be removed. Versus saying I have to go pro just to save the photos I edit even though it’s limiting you enough.
Really great photo editor
I love this photo editor, it is truly an “all-in-one” one stop shop for all your mobile photo editing needs. The only thing I would like to see added (and if it’s already in it, then forgive me - I hope the creators would tell me how and where to find it), is a way to fade blemishes? For example, I have Face Tune on my phone and Photoshop on my computer to get rid of pimples and help perfect complexions on portraits. If I had that feature here, I wouldn’t need the FaceTune app.
Adding a “brush” feature” where one could essentially “wipe away” unwanted blemishes, would make this beyond #1 editor in my book. I know there are other ways you can kind of do this, with lowering the contrast and detail a bit, brightening the image if possible or softening it, but again, if you really want to focus on the face and not touch the rest of the image, this feature would be amazing.
Another idea, something as seen in OnOne Camera RAW (which is a desktop photo editor), but to be able to brush detail and light/color enhancement onto the human eye. To “zoom in”, on a portrait, and lighten/brighten the eye, even perhaps give a bit more detail? This feature in that software is called very simply, “magic eye fixer.”
Anyway, that’s my two cents. Otherwise - I have the pro version and I love it. Thanks for making a great app!
Used to love it - UPDATE
After emailing back and forth with someone from the app, I stumbled upon a way to access the photos again. If you tap the camera on the top, take a picture, it will then bring up the window asking permission to access photos and all your photos will become visible again.
I’ve had a paid subscription to this app for two years now and have loved the beautiful photos I’m able to create. But with the last couple of updates, I am unable to access my photos. When I open the app, it tells me it needs access to my photos and has a button that says “Let’s do it”. When I tap the button, it takes me to my settings, but doesn’t have an option to allow access to my photos. So I am cancelling my subscription and going to try to find another app that works consistently. Which is disappointing because I really like Quickshot. I tried emailing the company and didn’t get a response.
