Really great but still has some issues

I love this app. I use it all the time. However, even when my phone and apps are completely up to date, the app will freeze or won’t allow me to save my image. Most of the time, when I’m halfway through my editing I quickly email myself the image even though it’s not completed so that I don’t lose it in case the app freezes again. It’s my favorite by far. I just can’t trust it.

Some filters crash this app!

I have used and loved this app for years but as my iPad air 4 aged, I lost the ability to apply certain filters like astro deep. I thought it was a problem with the old ipad. I bought a new iphone 12 mini and it did the same thing on that device. Just bought an ipad pro and I still can’t invoke astro deep without crashing/freezing paint fx and needing to kill the whole process. I searched for help on the web and found nothing. What is going on? What am I missing? I want this back!

Niiiioooooo ,

Love love love this app til I found out it doesn’t save in full resolution

I have used this apps for years and I absolutely love that it’s simple to use to highlight or add vibrancy or lighten just a portion of the photo. I thought it was saving my photos in full resolution but no. So suddenly I want to make enlargements but the resolution is too small after using this app. Surely there must be a way to fix this. I have so many photo apps and this used to be one of my favorites.
