Editors’ Notes

This incredible filtering tool will have you looking old-timey in no time. Hipstamatic’s awesome app is truly like nothing we’ve ever seen, transforming portraits into photographs that look hundreds of years old. Plus, thanks to a Photos app extension, you can edit pics right from your library.

Love this so much!

This is my favorite photography app. There are just two things that I wish it did (and find frustrating that it doesn’t)... 1) Be able to select photos to edit from certain albums, such as Favorites, and most importantly 2) Be able to resize/recompose photos in the app. I hope you’ll consider adding the ability to do these two things in the next update and make this app even more awesome. 🙏🏼

The Eyes, Framing & Filters Need Tweeking

It’s fun, but I agree with some, that the way it captures eyes needs fixing. It makes everyone’s eyes look like they are about to undergo cataract surgery. I also disliked the filter ranges. If you want to capture the mood of something rotting, or a cemetery photo shoot, this will work well. Most of it’s filter range hovers between over maxed airbrushing, or moldy soap bubbles. If you have strong sharp features and large pores, this will be a nice capture of your image, and you’ll do better, but there are some really attractive faces that this filter does not compliment.

I do think it is an enjoyable filter and think it is worth the price.
