Editors’ Notes

Look, if what you want is a quick filter here and there, then MuseCam isn’t for you. This is the deep stuff. This is manual exposures, custom presets, and adjusting your tone curves until they’re *just* right. This is a photographer’s kind of photography, and we absolutely love having so much power.

I get a little sad when I find an app like Musecam because I know I likely won’t be using, at least not often, other camera and photo editing apps I have. This is perhaps the best combo camera and photo editor I have found on the ios app store. Your just-taken photos are ready immediately for editing. Couldn’t be more convenient. And the emphasis on getting the colors just right for your personal tastes is quite laudable.

The free version is a steal, but you should go ahead and purchase the pro version at $4. That way you’ll have access to more features and some really good free photo-filter packs, including a magnificent black-and-white filter pack, as well as some great paid ones. Don’t see any subscription plans here, and they won’t hassle you with ads. Can’t beat that!

The basic editing functions, the RGB tone curves, the vibrance adjust function, the recording of and ability to undo each edit action, the ability to save custom presets...all these features add up to one of the best values on the app store. You’ll learn mainly by doing—usually the best way—and you’ll develop more confidence in your photo taking and editing skills.

If you’re “on the fence”, try the free version and compare to others.

Awesome app 554472 ,

Great image editor, except for editing RAW

As a photographer/cinematographer, I shoot in RAW. The only thing is, is that when I import a RAW image from my DSLR, the app freaks out and slows to a point where a slug could loop the world twice by the time MuseCam loads an image. I have to edit JPEG for now. Oh well.

On a brighter note, I am still giving the app 5 stars. By far the best image editor out there. I had the app before the update that makes you pay for the curves, and I did pay, because they are worth the $4. The HSL sliders and the Tone Curve tools are such advanced tools for an iPhone. I can give any image the signature orange & teal look in about three minutes. I highly recommend the app to beginner and professional photographers alike. Come on, does the $4 kill you? It's the price of a cup of coffee at Starbucks. Get over it. Upgrade.

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for your support. Your review was very helpful. We are sorry to hear that there is some sluggish performance when working with RAW images, and are working to improve this greatly in our next release. Please don't hesitate to reach out directly if you have any questions, suggestions, or comments.
