Love this

Simple and quick way to simplify photos for painting and sketching (see the most crucial lines and angles, capture the essence of an image). Exactly what I was looking for! Much more effective than squinting. And the images themselves are gorgeous as well. Thank you!

I’ve only used it once but it did well

I used a detailed picture so ofc I didn’t expect it to be golden but it was still better than what I expected

Wasn’t given a chance to play around with the app long enough before it asked me to review. The option was to rate now or no, I did not like. My first impression... I believe it can be a nifty lil’ app once I learn to navigate through. Curious — can text be deleted / removed? If so, I could not figure out how to do that.
