Remover tool.

Excellent App that adds creativity that most photo editing apps lack. I’m signed up to most of Enlights subscriptions, and a very happy customer. Hopefully in the future, all edits and filters, just like photofox, can be removed or restored by a remover tool. Not all functionalities are currently like that in this app. If I brighten up the photo, I want leave some places darker, and some lighter. There is a wonderful preset filter that is absolutely gorgeous, but in some parts of the photo I want to be able to remove the filter keep it natural. As previously mentioned, this is a seriously intuitive app. I am so excited every time I see an update.

Bad app

Recently I saw an add for this amazing app that removes from your pictures what you don’t want. On the ad it’s shows a clear background of where it is removed, but however on the app it makes a blurry big blob on the screen. We had already paid for a subscription as we needed the features but then this happened ! A total waste of money. If you have seen this app being advertised don’t buy it it looks nothing like it when it is purchased and may I say not cheap to buy either ! R280 gone ! This is by far one of the worst apps I’ve purchased ! Don’t waste your money or your time with this.
