I have probably underrated this app having not used it,to its full potential on my first day of usage. It appears to be an app for a quick adjustment. It does have some features that I like although, I would not trade the app over other popular Post processing tools as LightRoom, Luminar, Aurora HDR 2017, or Photoshop. If you are a beginner this certainly is an app which you will find beneficial. The app appears to be generic in nature but it has a good feel to it. Again, I would highly recommend this app if you are novice or a beginner. If you are just learning how to use photo editing tools, this app definitely would be a good beginning point. I look forward to seeing future updates and what the future may hold. It most definitely has great potential.

Thanks for your feedback Michael! Version 3.0 (available as a free update) adds numerous editing features, including advanced local-adjustments tools (even Curves, HSL, etc.), blending modes, luminosity masks, color masks, and much more as demonstrated in this video: We would love to hear your ideas for future updates:

Not Free

the description touts this as a free app yet your hit over the head when you open it that it's a $9.99 a month. Shame

Developer Response ,

Happy to clarify! Picktorial is totally free to download and has many features you can use however you like. There are also Premium features that require making a purchase, but that’s completely optional. If you feel Premium isn’t for you, we hope you will enjoy the free version of the app!



I have been in the photo industry a long time. At the age of 74 I thought I had reached a point of not being impressed anymore. Welllll, I am impressed. Picktorial has proven to be one of the easiest, simpliest, and highly creative software I have used in years. The level of adjustments from universal for the whole image to local for the most minute parts of the image are extensive and accurate and easy to use.

The colors are superb in my raw files for my Fuji X cameras and lenses and let me tell you that is hard to find in any software today.

The brushes, gradients, healing capabilities are just outstanding and this is the only program I have found that allows local adjustments for everything you can do in universal adjustments. I love the ability to sharpen just specfic areas or apply noise reduction to other small areas like the sky if necessary. And to control luminosity and color and saturation just to specific regions is the best I have ever used. What have I used? Here is a list. Adobe Lightroom, On1 Photo Raw, Alien Skin x2 layers, Luminar (terrible) Aurora, Nik plug ins, Macphun Plugins, Affinity. I have worked with all of them and nothing compares.

And for the price. Oh my goodness. You just cannot beat this.
