Almost perfect mobile photo editor

Let me start by saying I’ve been using this app for years. I love the tools it offers and ease of use.

The eraser tool is like no other where you can have multiple layers active and erasing and go back and restore them at anytime in your project. No other app I’m aware of has this ability and it’s the reason I stick with it.

The tools are great and constantly improving the ability to save your work and come back later without losing anything is so great. You can save edits forever and come back to them to make updates if you need to take a break or waiting to make changes later.

A few things I would like to see added.

More fonts, let me import my own fonts.

Shadows on layers, I often cut out people and put them on other backgrounds but I don’t have a tool to add shadows. Or maybe I add a sticker or object and I want to add a shadow effect.

More layers for better phones, I went from and iPhone 10 to 11pro and I was hoping for more layers. But it’s still limited to 12 layers. So I end up having to merge layers to be able to keep editing. I’ve had some photos that went beyond 20 layers. Giving more layers or giving and option to support more for phones with better specs would be great.

I love the app and I plan to use it for a long time. Thank you

Light tricks iOS 15 Update broke an amazing app

This used to be one of my top five apps on my iPad Pro. I was hoping the update for iOS 15 would include some new features which I feel were missing from the app. Between amazing capabilities of the iPad Pro combined with iOS 15 there was a lot of opportunity missed to do some great updating on this app. Instead they did 3 things! Added sticker, made layers, other then the one being worked with transparent so you can no longer color match among many other edits that require comparison to multiple layers, and broke the snap to frame feature which was so amazing. In the past when importing from photos the import would be made to fit the canvas it was being put it into. Now every photo is imported smaller than the canvas it’s being put on. This makes the snap to frame feature even more important. Instead each layer imported must be manually sized to the canvas it’s been add too. It takes several tries to get the image manually sized to fit the crop area. And usually then it still doesn’t fit perfect. So I’m constantly having to check to make sure there’s no gaps on the edges. If you trying to match up layers precisely forget about it. After five years I’m downgrading my rating from five stars to two and now in search of a new photo editing app

ALERT!!!!!!!! ,


I used to use this app for all of my collage artwork and I absolutely used to love using it… until the 2.2.37 update a few months back made everything in the app a complete nightmare to work with. I hate that you can’t use the two-finger pinch to change the size of the picture anymore (you have to drag the corners to the size you want and something the dots don’t even pickup my finger so I’m just sitting here for 20 minutes trying to resize the picture when before this update it took me two seconds lol). I also hate when bringing in a new picture, it doesn’t match the size of the original canvas, you have to (once again) fiddle with the corners for 20 minutes and hope that the pictures line up when you use the blend feature.

I’ve seen a lot reviews like this one and I understand you guys have a lot of positive feedback but this new update ruined my artistic brand and I haven’t been able to find anything else like the old version of the app. I’ll email the support team but I doubt that’ll do anything because a lot of the negative reviews in recent months compare to this and nothing has been done :(
