Good learning tool

In studying principles of photo composition I’m finding Photo Ext Comp of benefit in analyzing my photos. I can see which principles I followed and how they’re enhancing the overall effect of my photo. The only thing I’d suggest is the ability to transform the size of each effect without changing its proportions. That would make it a five-star tool for me.

Thank you for your feedback! We're working in the Wise Photos app which will do what you suggested.

good idea i guess, not worth the $2 i just spent on it. i wanted an app with the rule of thirds grid for taking pictures. this app only explains the rules. waste !!

Hi... I'm sorry that Photo Extension Composition was not what you expected. Photo Extension works inside the Apple Photos app by overlaying 12 composition rules on photos already taken. By viewing your own photos with Photo Extension, you can learn a lot about photography composition on your own time. Each composition rule is explained in detail to learn more about photo composition. If you want a camera with composition rules, you might want to try the Wise Camera app.

This app is great, but if you want real-time in camera

For real-time in camera composition rules get the Wise Camera app or for after post-processing composition rules get the Wise Photos app
