Great photo app
by tgk789 on 2019/09/19 15:09
I love this app. I use it to make the posters for my audio play podcast. But I am bummed that it will no longer be completely free In a short time. I will probably spring for it if it’s affordable, however, as it is extremely versatile.
Easy to make your photos stand out

No Google Photos Option?
by DL1776 on 2019/09/18 21:28
4 stars because... Often I need to work with older images stored in Google Photos, but there doesn’t seem to be an option to import anywhere but my iPhone camera roll. Many programs offer importing directly from Google Photos to cut out the headache of repeatedly downloading images to the camera roll before being able to work in the PS Express app. Please consider this.

OK but nothing like the real Photoshop
by Skyritr on 2019/09/16 03:58
I can make a few adjustments to an image with this in my iPhone XSMax, but every 10 seconds I find myself looking for functionality I have in Photoshop in Creative Suite, and all I feel is frustration.
Amazing!

Was Great, But Now Dissapointed
by bbutercup18 on 2019/09/15 15:53
This app was amazing. I loved it and I used it all the time. I just did a new update for it though, because I got a new phone and had to re download it, and they have changed almost all the filters so that you have to have premium to use them. This is incredibly disappointing for someone who doesn’t have money to spend on a photo editing app. Especially since they all used to be free to use. Like I said, I use this app a lot, and now I won’t be able to use it as much due to them making almost everything premium. Definitely disappointing. It used to be my favorite thing to use.
Easy

by SJPHD on 2019/09/14 23:03
This app is arguably the best single photo editing app you can use. Indeed, it renders some of the major similar apps for Mac OSX far less capable and effective than what users can achieve in iOS with PS Express.

Pros and cons about PS Photoshop for the iPad.
by linda jean jellybean on 2019/09/13 07:24
Overfall, this program works well for my photos. I’ve been shooting fine Jpgs to save space on my clouds. The HUGE DRAWBACK IS: no way to remove a book, spot, objects. I had to subscribe to Photoshop fix to do that. Not happy to switch back and forth just to remove a spot or etc. Linda professional amature

Performance has gotten really bad
by Finalflash50 on 2019/09/13 01:24
I am a long time user of this app, and while I love it and will continue to use it, all I have to say is the performance is absolutely pathetic. Even something as simple as switching between effects gives me the loading icon which locks the screen and lasts up to 3 minutes, even though no changes are being made. It also takes up to 5 minutes to render the image. It’s consuming a lot of time to get through one session of this app. This needs to be fixed.
Awesome!!
by RayHope24 on 2019/09/12 22:52
So many options to choose from! Love it!

Scam Alert
by LoNBoY420 on 2019/09/11 19:19
Today is the third and final time I will call Adobe regarding their credit card fraud policy. Apparently it is their policy to randomly charge multiple times a month and have no desire to stop. $9.99 a month to them is $9.99 this day, $8.99 that day, $9.99 another day, or even $19.99 the same day. This will now become an legal issue for them. Don’t be a victim!!
Crashes not fixed
by Denisipetisi on 2019/09/11 18:11
I’m not sure which of the crashes have been fixed but I have been trying for an hour now to create a collage and the app has been continuously crashing at all different stages. I can’t open the collage I first created and the app crashes when I try to make a new one.

Offers Organized, Professional Editing
by Eric997 326 on 2019/09/11 01:42
I recently rediscovered PS express. It quickly became one of my favorite photography apps. 1) It’s free. Most editing apps are free but require in-app purchases to make it worthwhile. PS express won’t bug you every 2 seconds to upgrade to a “pro” version. 2) It offers unique filters and effects that make your picture pop. I am a fan of Topaz, but when it comes to quick, everyday edits, PS express is the way to go. 3) It’s easy to use. Simply scroll through your options and you’ll find what you’re looking for. There are options that professional photographers such as myself find extremely useful!

by Cinnalynn4242 on 2019/09/10 11:52
That’s what I feel like when I use this app. I don’t have the skills, but this app sure makes it look like I do. I love how easy it is to make a collage or fine tune my pictures. I used to feel like a cheat when I used editing tools, then I realized that there probably isn’t a fine photographer anywhere who doesn’t use every tool at her disposal to make the shot beautiful. I’m still learning, I appreciate you making an app that is available to the masses. I lost my job so I don’t have the money to spend on the higher level app, but this free version suits my needs just fine.
Quick and easy
by TaleMorePics on 2019/09/10 08:55
If you’re trying to do some quick and user-friendly edits, the program is intuitive and great. I don’t print iPhone pics larger than a 4x6 so I’m not concerned with quality of touch ups.

Only 2 stars

I would give it higher but the blemish removal does not work well, it copies an image close by into the space I am trying to fix, it is very frustrating!

Great app..but..it’s a small but, don’t worry..
by DelPieroPirloCrespo on 2019/08/30 20:47
I use this in tandem with another app. I use this one to fine tune my work, and to use the collage feature. Basically, what the other app lacks, this app has, and vice versa. You can’t make make a multilayered photo rendering on this app, and that’s ok, but it would be nice if there was a way to overlay photos on top of each other using an opacity feature. Despite that not being an option, this app still gets 5 stars from me. I love that there’s so many filter options, and that you can of course manually edit your photos. The blemish remover works well, although it would be nice to have an eraser too. The collage feature is great. You can really produce some cool stuff. It’s really helped me develop my style of tree, and nature based art. Although, moat regrettably, as of yet, when I try to use the collage feature, there’s been white lines through my artwork. I’ve tried reinstalling, doing the latest iOS update, and contacting Adobe directly. Nothing has worked, so I decided to write this review! Ha. Anyways, despite my recent troubles with this app, it’s been well worth it, and I owe a lot to the software that has allowed me to make some pretty cool art- at least I think so.
Is this the next Photobucket?
by 4knfast on 2017/11/15 17:15
Maybe the title has you scratching your head, but it’s what came to mind when I thought of the functionality that Adobe provides through Photoshop Express, Photo Fix, and Photo Mix — the thought that a poorly implemented monetization effort is not far behind. A backhanded compliment, to be sure, but I do have some genuinely positive things to say about Express. It has taken a lot of effort to become adroit at swapping among the three aforementioned apps, but in becoming so I have at my fingertips, literally, some very useful tools to improve, or simply create a different emphasis for, my pictures. I also have Adobe PS CS6 on my laptop, and I have to tell you that sometimes the quickest route to achieving my goal for a photo requires the use of all four applications. And that brings me back too my opening. The Adobe products are so scattered that they probably can’t persist in their current state amongst all the competition that is springing up, and to bring them together to remain competitive would be to cannibalize from PS CC. And PS CC is a ripoff. It’s closest competitor—that is getting closer every day—asks $20 to BUY their product. So, just as it appears Photobucket has signed it’s own death warrant with their pathetic monetization by hostage-taking, I fear Adobe could be heading in the same direction with its photo editing products. And they really have been The standard bearer.
Honestly
by Tintek on 2018/10/21 18:55
Easily a 5 Star app if not for adobe’s constant angling for more money and more user data, updates that reduce functionality and unexpectedly lock you out of the app just so they can demand your email address in order to track and market to you. They already had the market cornered and had one of the most loyal customer bases of an software company that they’ve built up since the earliest days of Macintosh computers. They are ubiquitous in the desktop publishing industry world wide with zero competitors in sight (at least once quark dodo’ed out). Now that they’ve introduced their monthly leasing structure for their flagship products they are not only destroying what they’ve built up until now but more importantly they’ve stopped cultivating younger generations of loyal users who will choose other photo editing software packages that have a relatively minimal one price tag. No ones going to stop using photoshop who’s used it for years but students and other new users will be using other more affordable options. Basically I rant to say that adobe decided to bleed the goose that laid the golden egg for bigger quarterly gains. Suckers ruining a good thing. But this app for the iOS is on point and tight, if you know what your doing and not just interested in pre-fab filters there’s an impressive amount of photo editing options here. Get it together before that golden egg laying goose flys the coop.
Best editing app ever!!!!
by sammi celi c. on 2018/10/26 03:57
I love this app! It’s also free and I am so thankful for that because I don’t have that much money but I love taking photos it’s one of my hobbies. On this app u can add filters that look awesome. You can also add blur which makes the photo look great! This app is rlly easy to use and I rlly like it. Btw don’t like ever write reviews for apps but this app is the best and a must have for photographers or anyone rlly. I have pics that I don’t rlly like and want to delete but before I delete them I edit them in this app the I rlly like how it turns out and ❤️ the pick. I also recommend huji which is not rllya editing app but it’s a camera app, but I like ps express more. I high recommend this app fr yo. Get it lol. (Sry for any grammar mistakes I didn’t reread it cuz rn I want to edit more of my photos) Anyways trust me get this app u won’t regret it. When I tell someone and tell them to trust me on this I mean it and I know it’s true and they may not believe then but in the future they thank me so much. So u may not believe but just try and then maybe like spiritually thank me. P.S. your welcome for recommending it (ik that at least 94% of the people who read this comment will be so thankful, I did my calculations)
A mixed bag...
by GGTriGeek on 2018/11/15 00:19
There are some things I really like about the app, and some things I really dislike. Positives: I really like the ability to create custom looks. This is a huge time saver... pull up a photo, apply your own personal style, and the photo is ready to save. I also like the adjustment tools as a whole. They are intuitive, easy to use, and cover my needs for post processing. Negatives: I hate the social part of the app. Every time I start the app, someone’s hoot pops up and I need to exit this to get to my photos. For social feeds, I use Instagram and I shouldn’t be force fed social media just to modify my pictures. This is a more recent update... you didn’t get that splash screen in the past. Ideally we should be able to disable this in settings. The other negative is the app can be slow or crash at times. This has happened for well over a year, and I originally thought it was my old iPhone. Nope... same issues when I got my iPhone X at the end of last year. It will freeze on a photo and take a couple of minutes to make one adjustment. This doesn’t happen in other photo processing apps I’ve used, just this one. Overall, it’s still the app I use most often for ease of use... I just wish the social splash could be turned off, and that the stability would improve... and I’d give it a 5.
Undeserving of the photoshop name
by storeE8 on 2017/10/14 15:15
With affinity photo and other zillions of this type of app out there, this is kind of an embarrassment. To each their own, and not knocking anyone for liking it, but as a professional, this app - and their others - are not what you’d expect from adobe if you’ve relied on them for desktop software in the past. I can see plenty of instagrammers and selfie takers loving this, and that’s great - it’s nice to go beyond what apple stock apps and Instagram filters have to offer. 👍 However - Their scatterings of iOS apps meant to ‘add up’ to a pseudo-desktop ‘suite’ of features and offerings is exactly that - scattered. And highly frustrating because of it. There should be a much more robust amalgam of these apps for the iPad. Which the competition has already completed, so one must assume that adobe was and is always going to consider their iOS apps as lightweight apps for your phone only. Too bad, really. I appreciate adobe sketch, and I know that some of these apps have some perks and are designed fairly well, so it’s not like incompetence, it’s a plain and metered decision by adobe. With their pricey subscription model on desktop, and this ‘strategy’ for iOS, I can’t see them being top dog for much longer. Affinity and others may swallow them up while they remain somewhat oblivious and/or too profit-minded to survive this mobile/new-school editing software revolution.
Has been my go-to for years now
by Critic#928004562 on 2017/10/11 17:55
I have used the free photoshop express app on several generations of iPhones. Before Apple had editing right there in your iPhone photos. But honestly, even since the Apple editing has been included I still prefer using this Photoshop app. I’m no professional by any means so I have no idea how to articulate what it is that’s better lol but. I feel it’s extremely user friendly and has great options and features/tools to use in the free version (I’ve never even considered the premium). And... if you have used any other photo editing apps then you KNOW what I mean about the apps just suddenly kicking you out. Seriously aggravating when they just suddenly shut down and close the app thereby losing your edits and whatnot. I have never had that issue with this photoshop express. There are no advertisements either like some apps have. Previously, I would have said that I wish it had a couple other features so that I didn’t have to go to another second or third app to doodle on the pics or add a text overlay etc. but it appears as if they have added these things now! So, before I start sounding like a paid advertisement lol I digress.
Best app for amateurs and professionals while on their phone
by Gregknowles22 on 2019/05/08 03:59
I started using Adobe Photoshop in 1992 while in College to become a photojournalist. I remember still the awe I felt going to Mrs. V’s class. What incredible things would I see today? I try to hold on to those feelings in a world now full of altered images. It’s exciting, yet sad, that we seem to have lost ourselves in the realm of the surreal. I believe this app is incredible. There is no competition for handheld devices. Constantly improving while keeping its roots steady. At this point, I use the remove flaws tool as I used the original clone tool with great precision. If you’re at all confused or frightened by all the options photoshop has to offer, my advice to you is the words Mrs. V once told me...Just play. If I could give you any advice for improvement, I’d say look to the filters on instagram. I still prefer their options to any others offered here. And the effects offered by Carbon are brilliant! I’d add a Leica effect for selective focus and unique background pixilation and a hasselblad effect for a medium format look. That’s all. And if I could have my old clone tool with the choice of brushes...I’d be in Heaven. Thank you!
Must have for everyone of all ages and with beginner to advanced knowledge of photo “editing”
by K.C Morgan on 2018/12/19 17:55
It’s everything you can expect from Adobe! The favorite , to me anyway, is the collages variety! It’s not just squares beside each other, you got everything you can imagine including cool shapes like triangles or circles with as many photos as you can want( I don’t know that for sure , but so far I have used a collage with 12 photos and it looked awesome! The shapes also are aligned in many ways to make a huge impact and you can also size them each individually. It literally almost limitless what you can accomplish with these bold and exciting new look of collages! You can also add text with many options of the best fonts and can input them with “templates “ that are basically awesome quotes that you see on Pinterest or Facebook except you can edit the words, font, and color even the alignment ! Highly recommend !!!! I used it to sell things on offer up , eBay, or any site because it enables you to put everything on the first photo along with the price or info in a eye catching design that entices buyers to click to view your item(s)!!!
Always the standard
by gdongusgold on 2019/05/01 08:13
Sure, I’ll get excited about a new app with a unique feature or one with the standard offerings packaged differently enough to qualify as a novelty or disguise itself as a convenience - but they always fail to perform for long (usually get sluggish or think annoying commercials are what I deserve for using the product) and my excitement gives way to rational thought, and rational thinking is the antidote to impulse buying. But I win because while I may be out a couple dollars I learned something and I end up where I was doing well and knew the team on the other side of the app represent the gold standard in their industry. The only less than stellar features I’ve found were in the collage mode where resizing is not as simple as I’d like. Turns out it’s easier to delete the cell or whole collage than it is to edit it or find the help menu in a hurry. Every other feature and function is top notch and you can count on the Adobe team to keep it running smoothly.
Bug with Recent updates (~2mo's ago)
by Bwa236 on 2019/04/09 05:21
I held off writing a review because I hoped Adobe would fix this problem. I enjoy this app very much and it's a robust, useful, full-featured app. BUT....accessing it via the Photos app (e.g., by clicking Edit and using PS Express to edit the photo in the Photos app interface) has become buggy all of a sudden. More than 75% of the time I edit a pic this way, when I go to save it the screen will go black and the little "working" animation will twirl around and around. And it never saves the changes. INFURIATING. Often I will close the Photos app, reopen it and try to edit it again only for the same result. Sometimes a third time is the charm and it will save the photo edits. Opening the PS Express app before doing this doesn't change the outcome. I prefer being able to quickly edit it via the Photos app as the workflow is easier than loading manually in PS Express directly (when I have many to go through). This only started about 2 months ago. I have iPhone 8, 256GB, latest iOS updates. Please please fix this, it's been a bug for long enough. Contact me if you'd like me to video record this happening or for help recreating the issue. Thanks!
My go-to app for quick edits
by Korubisutaa on 2017/12/11 20:13
I love all of the Adobe CC suite apps but this one probably gets the most day to day use. Unlike other editing apps, I've never had a crash and lost work, it is extremely stable, and doesn't lag when applying changes... Unlike some other apps that are badly optimized as far as ram usage. I like that you can make and save your own filters, in other apps I can achieve the same look I want but if I want to apply it to multiple images it's a pain in the neck of remembering the order of settings and their intensity. With PS Express that hassle is no more. It's so versatile too, I can use it to crop and adjust before importing (easily, I might add) into another image editing app, but I can ALSO do the reverse and use PS Express for the finishing touches. It all depends on the task at hand and what I want to achieve. I'd give it five stars if it had layers, though importing into Mix, among others, gives me that option so it's only a minor annoyance as some images could be done fully in Express if it gave the option for layers. But it's a really amazing app nonetheless and I highly recommend it.
I use PS more often than I thought I would
by jbiancalana on 2017/11/19 20:09
I am a hobby photographer, so had a hard time justifying the monthly subscription fee. However, I use the whole suite of Adobe photo manipulation tools more often than I thought I would. In addition, my photography also has significantly improved not just because of post editing, but because I am more thoughtful about what I can do post-editing. For example, I would often take tight photos and shoot jpegs only because I did not take the time to edit my photos. Since I know I will process my photos after a shoot, I don’t take super tight shots because I know I can do a far better job cropping with software than through a viewfinder. Also, I am almost never frustrated from overcropping when taking the photo anymore. I also always shoot raw giving me the additional flexibility to adjust exposure settings if I didn’t get it right the first time. Finally, I am far more selective about what photos I keep since editing is a little time consuming.
Excellent App; Two Suggestions...
by JustaRottenGirl on 2018/01/28 19:13
This will make your photos freaking sparkle! A sweet and free photo editing app that offers a lovely and helpful arrangement of filters, effects, and tools for your general and extra photo needs. It has a sleek design and I genuinely enjoy using it. It made my regular old photos pop within a few seconds- it looked like I’d taken professional photos- pretty impressive! I even edit HD wallpapers to my taste- super sweet. However, there are 2 suggestions I’d make: 1. The ability to save while you’re editing, I.e. ‘save progress’ instead of just saving once at the end. Sometimes I get stopped in the middle of editing to take another photo or just because I have to leave the app. 2. Allow users to apply more than one design effect per save. It’s laid out so that the editing process goes in order from filters/design effects, to cropping, lighting/color/clarity/contrast adjustments, to red eye etc. So you can’t apply more than one design effect per process- ex. If I wanted to add the design effect of ‘soft’ AND ‘spring’ I’d have to edit the first time with one, save it, and edit the new photo again to apply the second design effect- which is a tad annoying because often times I’d like to layer my effects. I usually just edit the new saved photo to curbside this feature. Overall an excellent introduction into photo editing apps- this is making me consider investing in more editing apps. I’m highly pleased with this :) solid 4/5!!
Better!
by Damagetwin2077 on 2018/01/06 20:13
Update 2: Kudos to the developers who actually read these comments and care about user experience. The recent update allows for solid color backgrounds for collages however, this doesn’t completely fix the issue because of a few issues. 1. The color pallets for borders and backgrounds are different. 2. The color sliders for the CMYK and RGB are difficult to get a specific number on and 3. Even if you pick the same color, which is easiest to do using the themes, there is still a hairline border between the edge of the border and the edge of the background. I miss when I could just add radius to the border and not have to mess with the background. Update 1:This app was recently updated but the issue with collages remains. When you apply a radius borders the app creates a white layer that makes your border look terrible. There isn’t a solid fill option to fill the White later just patterns and gradients. The new update is a step backwards. The collage maker is not completely functional because you can't get rid of edges with out Mix. The text editor is woefully under powered compared to Fontcandy.
Love this app
by Lofuel717 on 2019/07/20 02:49
It’s great! Even though I am still slowly learning the ends & outs of everything it has to offer, so far I am all about it! I don’t have a lot of time to sit and work on a photo for a long time very often & with ps express I don’t have to. It’s simple and speedy so I can see good results within a few minutes. You can have a great photo where your smile is perfect but possibly have a few blemishes (or in my case, wrinkles) & with this app you can smooth them away, essentially perfecting your photo. If you have a picture that just needs “something” but you don’t know what it is, you can always use the magic wand & see what this app can do for your picture. I am amazed at a few that I had just about decided to throw away but with one tap they were not only save worthy, they became frame worthy. I highly recommend this app for your photo fixes. There is not anything about it that deserves less than a five star review! All in all a great app!
My “Go To” Photo Editing App
by OhDiedraDarling on 2019/07/29 21:45
PS Express by Adobe is my main “go to app.” Among the 4 or 5 photo apps I most use, PS Express: is my fav.’ I’d estimate I do 60 to 70% of my photo editing in PS Ex. I recall my incompetence w even basic level Adobe Photoshop those days. Photoshop Pro’s higher functions were so beyond my skill they nearly gave me nightmares. After smart phones w infinite apps came along, I found PS Ex’ a quick learn (suiting my habit of reading user manuals only as a last resort 😬). I see positives even in unpleasant changes when I can. In 2007, a repeat DUI offender forever altered my life by crashing into me head-on at high-speed. Till then, I’d enjoyed a familial gift at photography w little time to feed the skill. That awful crash forced me into a less physical lifestyle. I was thus able to pursue photography enough to be homespun into a photo editing junkie :-). Without PS express, I wouldn’t have developed the skills to feed my interest. I consider taking photo’ classes. Thanks PS Express & Adobe!
All Functions Continuously Frozen
by Ironsidefan on 2019/03/19 06:44
I installed this app on my iPhone XS Max around four weeks back. It had a different design user interface that all made sense, and worked. I initially installed it to use its photo mirror reverse feature, but afterward began discovering what all else it was capable of. Several weeks passed which during I was notified and installed an update from the developer. At the end of that period I needed to utilize the mirror reverse feature again, and discovered the changes to the layout of the user interface. From that point until now nothing works. It is all frozen except for a function labeled “Collage”. I notified the developer, and they replied requesting screen captures of what was showing, as well as clarification of the situation. They replied three times altogether, but since have gone “silent”. I told them in my first message that if nothing changed after a week, that I would be permanently deleting their app as in its current state it is nothing more than completely useless when all of its icon controls remain in effect as an “oil painting”. As I have not received any further communication from them tonight I followed through, and permanently deleted their app.
Needed a photo editor that did more than just add filters
by AmandaWaseskuk on 2019/01/06 15:49
This photo editor works great! And so far it is completely free, I have not run into anything that says “premium only” or anything like that. I had access to everything on the app. All you have to do is sign in via Facebook or Google and then you just get to work editing your photos. I had a picture that I took at Christmas that had some red eye, blemishes, and the sun light made a very weird line across my forehead in the picture. I was able to fix all of these things as well as add a great filter, which was hard to choose because they have so many! And it gives you the option to add a little bit of each one instead of just messing with how much of one filter like most ones do. You are completely creatively free in how you choose to edit your photos. I’m glad I downloaded this and will probably use it to fix up most of not all of my photos in the future!
My staple
by Hhxfjmcdh on 2018/12/12 01:57
I’ve been using these Photoshop Expresses for years. I’ve been through 4 progressively newer models of iPads, about to get my 5th, & Photoshop Express has always been my staple. I like to draw & dink around and I mess with photos a lot. I have more than a dozen different photo editors, collage makers, and artsy apps. But still, none have come even close to what Express can do. Enlight is good but not close. The best thing about The Adobe Expresses is that they constantly update and add new features and mini apps to go along with the others. I’ve been thinking for a few weeks now that I wish they had better filters to work pictures that’s available while in Express Fix. Low & behold what do I find as I opened the app, a page showing off all the new filters available. Now I gotta go look at the other new stuff. Wow its almost like Christmas! Oh wait, timings off. 🎄Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays. Now go get Express.
Freelance to Professional
by Leandera Greenwood on 2017/09/20 13:25
This app is absolutely stunning! From allowing you to rotate and transform horizontal axis views ect. from the new update, to color blocking, lighting, and every possible filter and feature in between it is a high recommendation to both beginners and pros alike. I've used this app for about 4 years now and never once had it failed me. To think, I started off as a beginner finding random things to photograph and awkwardly squatting in the supermarket aisle so "the bottles hit the lights just right" to now having my hobby as a career! The biggest shocker is all I have ever used for my photography is a simple iPhone 6 camera.. My pro secret is any camera is the perfect camera with the right editor. The only thing I would like to recommend is layering, like having one filter on and being able to add another ontop of it. But until then, I'll manage by just saving one filter edit to my phone and simply re-editing it.
Great for all enthusiasts
by photosynthesislove on 2019/08/02 05:09
It’s pretty fantastic - I’m runnining it on N iPad Pro with raw files from a 5d mark III and it has no problems at all - I love the mirror effect but I wish it would allow for fuller frame or an option for a rectangular finish - either way it slays the other tablet and phone apps I’ve used in the past to be frank this is the first time I’ve been satisfied with the functionality and creative flexibility in any photo finishing app that I was able/willing to travel for 6 weeks with no computer - the save function “to camera roll” only was my number one complaint on the trip - ne ice to enjoy a batch function for us Lightroom lovers that just need a temp correction for a fbook post - would love to know if that is coming or already available in another app. Bravo any way - super functional easy to use easy to run on this iPad anyway - an imagine on the larger iPad Pro w the 6gb ram it would be starling fast - 3 Cheers =)
Awesome even for Amateur
by Mc12062011 on 2018/10/25 15:38
Unfortunately I don’t know much about photography, and I’m also a beginner artist. I needed to edit a photo for both clarity and color of a cat. I’m working with colored pencils which is especially challenging. This app has so many options! Even as an amateur, I was able to play around with the options to make my photo easier to use as my reference. I still have a lot to learn on taking photos that show detailed fur, but this app really gave me something I could work with. My cat is an orange tabby and I was able to get colors that closer matched her actual tint. I was also able to save it to my photo roll so I have both original (although this app does state that original is never lost) and the edited version. It will accomplish more than I will ever comprehend so I think both experienced and novices will find this app very helpful.
Pretty good
by iTif on 2019/06/25 19:28
Update: my beef still lies with the watermark. If you frame your pic in any fashion, There is a solid chance watermark is not going to end up where you want it. If only way to change it is to leave your photo, go into settings, put it where you think is a good placement, and try the whole process again. Would be great if you could take care of this when going to save the photo (which is when the watermark is added). I’ve been using this app for at least 3 years I would say. I love the addition of the watermark, but would REALLY love it if you could adjust placement once it’s been framed. The black highlight over a white frame just clutters up the image. Changing the watermark color would help, but still not as clean as a white watermark over the image. It would also be great if the user could move the image within the frame (if framing image), as opposed to the current workflow (unframe it, recrop, reframe, hope the image sits where you want it, repeat).
Glitchy
by MezzoMH on 2018/08/16 05:11
I love Photoshop, but recently it’s really glitchy when I am making collages. It stretches the picture when I try to save it to my camera roll, and any text becomes very distorted. I’ve been having to screenshot my collages and crop them from my camera roll. It’s also really glitchy when trying to add text to the collages. It keeps randomly switching the text/themes. It will also randomly undo things I’ve done, and it’s hard to get it back to the way I want it. It sometimes even freezes, and I can’t do anything with it and have to close the app, then go back in to start over. If I could find another app that makes edits as nice as Photoshop, I’d definitely use it instead. It’s just become so frustrating... It takes me at least three times as long to do a collage, just working around the glitches. I haven’t run into any issues while just editing photos, but there are definitely some problems with the collage portion of the app that need to be worked out.
Great but could easily be greater...
by Anarobotic on 2019/07/24 15:20
Currently has a few bugs and glitches, especially as it correlates with your photos library and it’s own saves etc. A few other little features would make this a stellar app, like being able to isolate (maybe by drawing a lasso tool) in order to perform edits on particular areas of the photo, dial in specific colors in HSL and to edit/composite a few layers would be super! Also, to simultaneously apply filters, like HDR & White Balance, and “Looks” etc. All in all, I’m very grateful for the app and find it really helps do what Photos simply cannot. Ps. Would love to subscribe, but being we’re a non-profit w/ limited resources for marketing and communications, adding 9.99 a month for something we’ll only publish or use a couple times a month (as we haven’t dedicated staff for it) is a tad steep. It’s not that 9.99 breaks the bank, but when added to the total tech & communications budget it adds up 😅
Puts limits on files
by CleverNameGoesHere on 2019/09/03 20:53
Pictures I edit using this app and then save to my camera roll are unable to be seen by other apps. For example, I edit a picture & save to my camera roll, then open Snapchat to post it and the picture isn’t there. All other pictures appear except ones that I’ve edited using this app. (The problem isn’t limited to Snapchat, that’s just an example!) The pictures are visible in my camera roll in the built in iOS Photos but not if I’m viewing the iOS camera roll from a different app. There is absolutely no support for this app. None. I tried for hours to get someone to help me solve the problem of the disappearing photos and all they would tell me is to go to the forums... and if you’ve been to the forums you know how unhelpful they are. I know it’s a free app but if you’re going to put restrictions on photos you need to be upfront about it. I’ve paid for various things to be unlocked in the past but all of those are lost because everything is now free and yet I can no longer post or share the photos I’ve edited to the media I want. What a joke.
Applicable for entry level to more advanced users
by GreenBayGirl on 2018/12/22 20:03
The thing to note is that this is an “express” version of the well-known Photoshop program by Adobe. As an app that is not intrusive on my phone and does not demand high monthly subscription fees, I absolutely LOVE this app! I use it on my iPad Pro, but I also have more advanced editing apps there. I also have this on my iPhone 7 Plus and Note 8 and enjoy using it on all platforms. It is wonderful that a person without any knowledge of what a ‘layer’ is can easily navigate their photo edits. For those who are more advanced, you can still save edits as layers and export to other versions of Photoshop. I appreciate the versatility of this aspect allowing non experts to still take advantage of Adobe’s more basic uses while not preventing a pro from getting a quick start on edits on their phone or tablet. Thanks for this!!!
You’ve got my vote!
by Michael R. Lee on 2019/08/26 02:12
I downloaded Photoshop Express mainly because I have Adobe CC on my Mac Pro which has Photoshop CC and many more, of course. But I loaded it on my iPhone to add a little convenience. I figured it would give me a chance to work on my school projects on the run. But to my surprise it’s been a great discovery. I’m still working out the kinks but it’s been pretty easy to use. Really fun. 2 👍🏾’s up! MRLee Update: I really love PE. I use it all the time. At home, away from home, while sitting & waiting to be seen by my Doctor. I even find myself going back in older files to do photo touch ups, as well as, using it for special effects on my portraits. It’s great! MRLee Update: I’m using PE again to get me out of a spot with my homework in a Storyboarding course. I need to hand this project in by 11:59 p.m. tonight and this is the quickest way to do it. Thanks again. MRLee
Works great on the go
by Bertactive on 2019/08/22 05:08
Works great on the go small issues with sending to PC and would be nice to have the ability to layer fonts when you’re feeling a little more artistic and everything else you need is in the app being its a simplified version multiple font layers is my only critique within the app interface possibly add the capability to use live icons like Bitmoji can be used in Snapchat with a live figure that’s Re-sizable doing different motions like. Playing air guitar, waiting tapping foot, thinking rubbing chin maybe a Looping pop up comment/thought bubble or rocking out would be a cool addition with seasonal or holiday themed additions you can keep but overall it gets the job done and communicates well enough to send the file to other apps or pc for greater edits in full PS. Two thumbs up from me in overall performance!,.. Rob Napier #Duuuuvaaalll!
AMD
by AMDLP on 2018/04/13 04:31
Lots of really nice photo editing and collage features -for free! I’m not a photographer or into photography at all but I enjoy fixing up the images if I’m going to print them. Once you tinker around with a few pics and see what each tool does to correct/enhance the photo it becomes a breeze to use. I’m using it for the first time and found it user friendly and intuitive. The only criticism I’d give it is that when you undo an action it doesn’t tell you which action you’ve undone. For someone like me who doesn’t know what each feature does on regular photoshop on a desktop, it’d be nice to know each time what I’m “undoing”. Even without that feature, there are a lot of useful tools to enhance your phone pictures without making them look too filtered or overdone i.e. noise and color reduction, shadows, red eye and blemish correction,etc.
Powerful handheld editor
by Bobaque on 2017/11/23 18:30
With a few more additions, this could be a one-stop-shop, all-in-one editor. Here’s what I love. The algorithms do wonders with Highlights, Shadows, Blacks, Whites. Saving your own ‘looks’ is a great feature for adding the same effects to multiple photos taken in the same lighting and scene conditions. Here’s my wishlist for further improvements: - Transferring ‘looks’ that have been created and saved on one device to my other devices, or to friends, or to your adobe online community. I created a magical ‘look’ on my iPhone that I cannot seem to recreate on my partner’s iPhone or my iPad. - Allow ‘looks’ that have already been created to be edited, or at least allowing to see what settings/recipe concocted that ‘look’ would be fantastic as well. - Mid-tones slide control. White, Blacks, Highlights, Shadows,...and Mids. - Vignetting with controls would be a nice basic feature that is currently missing. The current vignetting preset is too strong and cannot be adjusted. - Selective Color saturation editing. For example, to knock down a bit of saturation or slightly tweak hue of greens or yellows in the photo, but keep the blues or reds, etc. as-is. - Whites glow control for adding ethereal effects. - Edge sharpen as an addition to general sharpen. Cheers!
I wish we could do more.
by Anya S. 0607 on 2017/11/15 03:44
Thanks for responding. I’m sorry if I took too long to answer the email, but I emailed the photos. The first photo is the original, and the second one is the edited photo. Thank You so much! Original Review: When I first opened the app, I thought “What a fake app. It doesn’t even look real.”. Those first assumptions were wrong. I pulled up an image of the solar system. I wanted to change the image completely into something else. I have and always wanted to photoshop something, so I was ready for excitement. By the time I finished, the solar system was a fireball. Yet, I was still disappointed. I expected to be able to make it look like I was there, in the solar system. Everything I did on this app, I could do easily and quicker on InShot. If I could give this app 2 1/2 stars, I would. Isn’t Photoshop supposed to be editing yourself into it. I want to put myself in the photo badly, and I bet other people do too. I’ve seen people Photoshop people into Paris or Jupiter. It’s an amazing skill I wish this app could do. I will keep this app because it is semi useful, but I will wait for my request for an update. To be fair, adjusting Contrast and fixing mess-ups is Technically photoshop. Please respond back. I am hoping you can find a way to let people express themselves by photoshopping their self into places.
Nice to have but not the best
by CornBreadEarl&TheGang on 2019/01/16 14:48
PS for mobile devices should be combined with at least LR so bouncing between files isn’t a hassle and so there should still be an option to edit raw files within PS. Also, if it doesn’t now, I feel that PS should be able to sync with PS CC 2019 so further edits could be made. Overall though I feel PS for the iPad should be more in depth. Even the base model 2018 iPad could handle some tasks. Let’s make it happen. Make me want to invest I’m am iPad Pro for artistic purposes and be able to use the devices as such. Right now everything still solely relies on a MacBook and or laptop. Which is fine because it’s been that way, but for myself and for somebody who never gets stuck in the same type of office space, it would be nice if the iPad had more flexibility so it could be a more prosumer device compared to what it is now. Anyway, still love Adobe mobile apps, just hope to see them shine through as time progresses.
First 3 hours - First project
by Gagethan on 2018/07/20 18:21
I am very impressed with the capability of this application. It offers the widest range of tools of any editing app I’ve seen on the market, and allows for multiple add-on applications that help to expand that tool belt and all for free. I would suggest that with all of the apps available together you could accomplish any goal in editing without needing to look at any other software. As well, they have made it easy to jump between these applications while working on the same project. This must be the closest thing to having my full editing bay I am used to condensed into a simple to use, one stop, medium right at my finger tips. After searching for any competing application that would allow me to dissect existing files and work on a project with layers, I was close to caving in and trying a paid app that I do not feel would have been worth the purchase. This was an invaluable download. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in editing or photo touch ups. My only suggestion would be to steer away from the ease of access style HUD which lists filters and correction wizards most immediately, and move to something more heavily concentrated on the tools professionals will be looking for. All in all, it was easy to navigate to these features.. it was just a little tedious.
Simple, decent features
by anaspis on 2019/04/29 18:06
I’ve only just started using the app and I have a paid CC subscription, so my opinion is skewed in that manner. But I really like the app! It doesn’t have the same functionality as desktop Photoshop, but then again, I didn’t expect it to. It makes photo editing simple, whether you’re trying to improve the coloring/detail of your photo, cover some blemishes, or literally stifle your image with a filter. Quick and easy. My only complaint is the beta camera affects choices are, uh, lacking. Not in variety—in quality. If you try the app you’ll understand. It’s not a major complaint, especially because the feature is in beta and I probably won’t use it. But for people who really like vintage effects on their photos, this app will not (realistically) create that for you.
Thank you and don’t remove ability to edit in photos app with app
by nearlycanadian on 2018/09/24 05:16
I recently was frustrated beyond belief because you did an “update “ of the app that meant one could no longer be on a photo in your photos library and use photoshop express to edit. I voiced my severe frustration with this change as it means as a photographer who has several thousand images editing using the app only in their app means it’s impossible to use the app to edit as no one wants to navigate through several thousand images to edit your specific file . You changed it back so after investigating other apps to use for photo editing my Favourite is back and will be my go to. Please don’t make this change again it is of no use to anyone. Thank you for changing it back !!!5 stars
Destroyed
by Zero7starz on 2018/12/16 18:17
Welp. Now I have to find a new editor. I never understand why companies think it’s a GOOD IDEA to take away features. This app used to be amazing and it auto adjust images perfectly. Well they took that feature away and left only the magic wand. So now, either I get way too much effect or it barely does anything to make the image look better. I’m frustrated and angry about this. Frankly I didn’t have time to go shop for another photo editor to use on my mobile but now I have to stop everything I’m working on because they took that away in the middle of me editing a month’s worth of photos. To keep the consistency, it also destroyed what work I had already done. Thank you adobe for being the absolute biggest pain in my side this holiday season. So to sum up: If you were looking for a photo editing app that works fantastically well with quick and easy edits you best look somewhere else. This app will no longer help you unless you want to sit and tweak dozens of sliders for hours on end. That’s the main reason I never use Snapseed!!
The best minimalist app on the app store!
by average review on 2018/03/26 00:03
They say that this app was created for those who need to “edit photos on the fly” and, with that in mind, they include what I can only assume are the most requested/used “photo editing” tools for the filter-obsessed, selfie-addicted, instagramillennial generation. I guess making a fresh-poppin app that’s both hip and dope at the same time turned out to be vastly more profitable than the old business model, developing versatile, and useful mobile photo-editing tools. Unfortunately, those who find such tools useful are vastly outnumbered by the throngs of people who only need a quick way to make their lives look less average than they really are. So, for what it is, I guess it works good. Of course, they did set the bar pretty low. It’s easy to make an awesome app if you remove all of the complex functionality. But, sure, four stars. It’s not like they actually say this is a useful app for photo editing professionals. It is what it is. By the way, if anyone knows of a good mobile app that offer the same set of tools that PS Touch used to have, please let me know. I was one of the fifteen poor slobs who actually used the thing and it’s obvious that Adobe is really only interested in money at this point so, I don’t see them bringing it back any time in the near future.
Mandatory login is trash
by Ezb1333333ezb on 2019/05/25 10:30
Support responses are along the lines of “Dear User we require more inputs.” Nobody from Adobe (who understands English) reads these or cares what we think, or has cared in years — a fact they made abundantly clear when they moved to the Creative Cloud pricing structure. They did far worse than alienate me as a user of this worthless free app, they lost me as a 20 year Photoshop customer: I’m at 6.0 and will never update to CC. Be assured that your words to/about Adobe fall on deaf ears, when they run out of money and die it will be the most deserved tech business failure death spiral in recorded history. You know why this app has a 4.8 rating? Because it resets for the current version to give devs a chance to fix their stuff and not be dinged for bad reviews on old buggy versions. Adobe just keeps pushing through fake and useless “updates” so they boost their rating after too many of us complain about being forced to log in. If they gave you a dumb reply be sure to re submit your review when they “update” it.
Great app!
by La Super Gravitania on 2017/10/27 21:43
I had been using photoshop for years, so I decided to give their app a try, and It has been my go to app to work my photos for years now. It has all the basic tools to enhance a good photo. It doesn’t do miracles! If your photo isn’t good. It might be hard to fix it. I don’t use the filters that much because I like “normal” looking photos, and their filters alter the image to much, but some people like that, so I guess is ok. He are a few things I would change: 1 vignette - I would add it to the tools section like other apps do and add a slider to it to change the intensity of it. 2 frame - besides being able to crop it, it would be nice to be able to fit it in the screen or give it a margine like other apps like InstaSize do. That is really helpful. Specially because it gives the image a white background. 3 touch screen - I also use an app called paint effects because It allows me to change only parts of the photograph without altering the entire image. They do good use of the touchscreen. It is like the mouse for the computer. You select the tool you want and drag your finger over the screen to apply it to an area. It is genius and super simple to use. This is a great app. I really recommend it.
Keeps requesting a new password
by LISNC on 2019/06/16 01:37
Great editing app, tried many and this one ranks at the top of the iOS photo editing apps with great features. One very annoying issue is it’s amnesia when it comes to the user password. After every several sessions (wasn’t able to come up with an exact one, but somewhere between 3 and 7) it stops recognizing the login password. It does offer a link to reset the password, however anything you have used in the past or resembles a previous password is denied. It is a real annoying issue which I read someone else complaining about. Unless this is by design, not sure for what reason, I wish they did something about it. Would have given 5 stars or more if it was possible if not for this problem.
Best editing app for my photography EVER!!!
by Alex Everstar 🙃 on 2019/08/05 21:51
One thousand stars for this! I love the editing process of photography, it’s the best. It shows the true skills of a photographer if they can edit the photo and make it look better than the original picture. Wow people, intrigue them into wanting to know more about said picture. Trying to find an editing app is a hassle, because some kinda work, and a lot of times some don’t. Adobe PS Express Works, 10/10 times. No matter what photo I’m trying to edit. The app works. Of course there are always going to be downsides to an app. There always is, and always will be. I have a iPhone 6 Plus, my friend who uses this app has a iPhone X. His loads faster, doesn’t do anything mine does. Now I don’t know if it’s because they have a better model of the iPhone but my adobe takes forever to load and crashes when I’m in the middle of editing. Sometimes when I click a photo to edit, it freezes the entire phone for over a minute. I’m hoping in the future updates the performance will be better than it is. Overall though this app is a MUST HAVE FOR ANYONE Who is into photography, who needs to edit their photos because this is it guys.
New way to get into the app is garbage
by chocolate thunder with a lil lightning on 2018/09/17 17:16
I have loved this app for YEARS. I updated it the other day and now instead of just using it I had to sign in with an Adobe ID or Facebook. I don’t have Facebook so creating a new account was a minor inconvenience. You want my data. I get it no problem. The problem I have is not being able to use the app on the fly like I could before. I could take a photo and edit it with this app without having to create a new photo. This HAS become a big inconvenience. Now instead of being able to edit the photos with this app inside of photos app, I have to open it up PS Express and then bring in the photo. It takes more time and now I have two photos instead of being able to just edit the original. This is time consuming when you are at an event and want to post a great photo on Twitter or Instagram. The app still produces great work but this new functionality bites. Please change it back.
Love all the different options
by 00Chelle00 on 2018/05/19 19:16
I love this app! I take so many pictures it’s ridiculous... over 25,000 on my phone and I’m out of memory now! Lol I had the desktop version of this app before my computer messed up and I used it all the time.... it was amazing! I’m by far no expert on editing photos... I need all the help I can get actually! I really like how you can bounce from one app to the other and back again to do further editing that this app doesn’t provide. The only problem is when I do this, after I finish editing my photo and try to come back my photo isn’t coming back with the edits. There’s a problem somewhere in the transfer from one app to the other! I hope this is soon fixed because when it does work it’s pretty awesome!
No longer able to use without an email address
by Naja12168 on 2019/02/13 20:46
I have used this app for a couple of years now, and it’s relatively easy to use. I enjoy the features provided in it, as I use it for basic things like color altering and cropping. I went to go to use it just now, however, it won’t let me access the features without registering my Facebook or Gmail email, or without getting an Adobe ID. I never needed anything before. Now, you must register in some way in order to use the features? That seems unfair to me. I don’t need another company sending me email. I don’t need another company tracking my movements or trying to sell me stuff, which is the main reason why businesses request email addresses. It’s a shame, because I truly enjoyed this app. I wish I could continue to access the features like before. I was able to use it just fine two days ago.
Great app, but raw support for newer cameras is lacking
by Sengoku_us on 2018/12/05 00:09
Overall this is a great app. Could do with support for nested folders in the photos app. Also support to import/edit files via the iPad’s ‘File’ app would be great! Ver 7.0 Fuji X100F firmware 2.11 raw files are supported! yay. After updating, “My looks” have been erased. Very annoying. Needs to be a way to export them and import them in cases like this Ver 6.10 Fuji X100F firmware 2.11 raw files currently not supported! Have submitted feedback and a raw file. Has been two app updates since feedback was submitted. Ver 6.6.1 Fuji X100F firmware 2.10 raw files now supported! yay! 5 stars!! It takes a few updates once Adobe has been notified, but they get there in the end. Ver 6.5.2 Fuji X100F raw files still not working. I contacted Adobe about it on ver 6.4. I’m a little upset it has taken so long. Ver 6.4 Fuji X100F firmware version 2.10 raw files do not work (and just after Adobe updated the app to work with firmware 2.00) Ver 6.2.2 Still no RAW support for the X100F, I’m dropping my rating by one star. Especially after I was informed this request would be passed on to the developers. Ver 6.2.1 Especially with Fuji cameras. X100F has been out since Feb 2017, and it is now Jan 2018 and the X100F raw files are not yet supported.
No more Photos shortcut
by moimoiak on 2019/01/10 21:25
I used to edit all my photos in PS Express. In a recent update, the option to use PS Express from the Edit screen in Photos was eliminated. Now instead there’s a shortcut you can add to import into PSE from the Share menu. NBD if you’re editing a single photo, but it’s an extra step that’s a bit of a headache if you’re working with more than that. I find I use PSE a lot less now unless I know I’m only going to work with one photo. The most recent update also turned on a PhotoShop watermark that doesn’t show up until after you’ve saved/exported a photo. I didn’t notice it until after I’d already posted it on a work-related IG account. Then I had to go looking for the option to turn it off. That’s not the kind of feature you should be springing on people with no warning. Now I’m wondering what other surprises I can expect with the next update.
For basic editing photoshop express is my go to app.
by rich_blondes on 2017/12/05 18:29
I really like the smoothed out look I can get in portraits without pixels or noise effecting my end results. Now I t is almost a a three because except for the wonderful basic editor the rest of the filters , including the premium. It’s kind of sad that a company that is known for advanced powerful software looks like they let kids make their premium filters. Pop art filters would be more useful, and I do like the color recognized in the collage section. I can get three pics together that I love, and the color that is dominant is picked up in the other photos making cohesive and looks nice. It would be a great feature for anyone obsessed with a theme, or a color so their feed looks matchy matchy. I just post if something is interesting, but it’s awesome for the themesters

Great photo app
by tgk789 on 2019/09/19 15:09
I love this app. I use it to make the posters for my audio play podcast. But I am bummed that it will no longer be completely free In a short time. I will probably spring for it if it’s affordable, however, as it is extremely versatile.

No Google Photos Option?
by DL1776 on 2019/09/18 21:28
4 stars because... Often I need to work with older images stored in Google Photos, but there doesn’t seem to be an option to import anywhere but my iPhone camera roll. Many programs offer importing directly from Google Photos to cut out the headache of repeatedly downloading images to the camera roll before being able to work in the PS Express app. Please consider this.

by bbutercup18 on 2019/09/15 15:53
This app was amazing. I loved it and I used it all the time. I just did a new update for it though, because I got a new phone and had to re download it, and they have changed almost all the filters so that you have to have premium to use them. This is incredibly disappointing for someone who doesn’t have money to spend on a photo editing app. Especially since they all used to be free to use. Like I said, I use this app a lot, and now I won’t be able to use it as much due to them making almost everything premium. Definitely disappointing. It used to be my favorite thing to use.

Overfall, this program works well for my photos. I’ve been shooting fine Jpgs to save space on my clouds. The HUGE DRAWBACK IS: no way to remove a book, spot, objects. I had to subscribe to Photoshop fix to do that. Not happy to switch back and forth just to remove a spot or etc. Linda professional amature

Performance has gotten really bad
by Finalflash50 on 2019/09/13 01:24
I am a long time user of this app, and while I love it and will continue to use it, all I have to say is the performance is absolutely pathetic. Even something as simple as switching between effects gives me the loading icon which locks the screen and lasts up to 3 minutes, even though no changes are being made. It also takes up to 5 minutes to render the image. It’s consuming a lot of time to get through one session of this app. This needs to be fixed.
Awesome!!

by Mindycheese on 2019/09/12 15:59
They used to have an auto color correction button that went away in a recent update so it’s a little more work to fix a dark photo

As a beginner in photography this app is a great help to apply the tools I need to have a better quality picture. Even though I love the natural look, in some pictures it’s nice to have a touch up.

Scam Alert
by LoNBoY420 on 2019/09/11 19:19
Today is the third and final time I will call Adobe regarding their credit card fraud policy. Apparently it is their policy to randomly charge multiple times a month and have no desire to stop. $9.99 a month to them is $9.99 this day, $8.99 that day, $9.99 another day, or even $19.99 the same day. This will now become an legal issue for them. Don’t be a victim!!
Crashes not fixed
by Denisipetisi on 2019/09/11 18:11
I’m not sure which of the crashes have been fixed but I have been trying for an hour now to create a collage and the app has been continuously crashing at all different stages. I can’t open the collage I first created and the app crashes when I try to make a new one.
Great app

Offers Organized, Professional Editing
by Eric997 326 on 2019/09/11 01:42
I recently rediscovered PS express. It quickly became one of my favorite photography apps. 1) It’s free. Most editing apps are free but require in-app purchases to make it worthwhile. PS express won’t bug you every 2 seconds to upgrade to a “pro” version. 2) It offers unique filters and effects that make your picture pop. I am a fan of Topaz, but when it comes to quick, everyday edits, PS express is the way to go. 3) It’s easy to use. Simply scroll through your options and you’ll find what you’re looking for. There are options that professional photographers such as myself find extremely useful!

by Cinnalynn4242 on 2019/09/10 11:52
That’s what I feel like when I use this app. I don’t have the skills, but this app sure makes it look like I do. I love how easy it is to make a collage or fine tune my pictures. I used to feel like a cheat when I used editing tools, then I realized that there probably isn’t a fine photographer anywhere who doesn’t use every tool at her disposal to make the shot beautiful. I’m still learning, I appreciate you making an app that is available to the masses. I lost my job so I don’t have the money to spend on the higher level app, but this free version suits my needs just fine.
Quick and easy
by TaleMorePics on 2019/09/10 08:55
If you’re trying to do some quick and user-friendly edits, the program is intuitive and great. I don’t print iPhone pics larger than a 4x6 so I’m not concerned with quality of touch ups.

Only 2 stars
by fustrating app on 2019/09/10 00:29
I would give it higher but the blemish removal does not work well, it copies an image close by into the space I am trying to fix, it is very frustrating!
Very handy basic photo editing app
by Maewkaew on 2019/09/09 19:35
I have enjoyed using Adobe software for many years so I am not surprised they would make one of the best apps for doing on the fly photo edits on my IPhone.

Collage feature is fun.
Great app..but..it’s a small but, don’t worry..
by DelPieroPirloCrespo on 2019/08/30 20:47
I use this in tandem with another app. I use this one to fine tune my work, and to use the collage feature. Basically, what the other app lacks, this app has, and vice versa. You can’t make make a multilayered photo rendering on this app, and that’s ok, but it would be nice if there was a way to overlay photos on top of each other using an opacity feature. Despite that not being an option, this app still gets 5 stars from me. I love that there’s so many filter options, and that you can of course manually edit your photos. The blemish remover works well, although it would be nice to have an eraser too. The collage feature is great. You can really produce some cool stuff. It’s really helped me develop my style of tree, and nature based art. Although, moat regrettably, as of yet, when I try to use the collage feature, there’s been white lines through my artwork. I’ve tried reinstalling, doing the latest iOS update, and contacting Adobe directly. Nothing has worked, so I decided to write this review! Ha. Anyways, despite my recent troubles with this app, it’s been well worth it, and I owe a lot to the software that has allowed me to make some pretty cool art- at least I think so.
Is this the next Photobucket?
by 4knfast on 2017/11/15 17:15
Maybe the title has you scratching your head, but it’s what came to mind when I thought of the functionality that Adobe provides through Photoshop Express, Photo Fix, and Photo Mix — the thought that a poorly implemented monetization effort is not far behind. A backhanded compliment, to be sure, but I do have some genuinely positive things to say about Express. It has taken a lot of effort to become adroit at swapping among the three aforementioned apps, but in becoming so I have at my fingertips, literally, some very useful tools to improve, or simply create a different emphasis for, my pictures. I also have Adobe PS CS6 on my laptop, and I have to tell you that sometimes the quickest route to achieving my goal for a photo requires the use of all four applications. And that brings me back too my opening. The Adobe products are so scattered that they probably can’t persist in their current state amongst all the competition that is springing up, and to bring them together to remain competitive would be to cannibalize from PS CC. And PS CC is a ripoff. It’s closest competitor—that is getting closer every day—asks $20 to BUY their product. So, just as it appears Photobucket has signed it’s own death warrant with their pathetic monetization by hostage-taking, I fear Adobe could be heading in the same direction with its photo editing products. And they really have been The standard bearer.
Honestly
by Tintek on 2018/10/21 18:55
Easily a 5 Star app if not for adobe’s constant angling for more money and more user data, updates that reduce functionality and unexpectedly lock you out of the app just so they can demand your email address in order to track and market to you. They already had the market cornered and had one of the most loyal customer bases of an software company that they’ve built up since the earliest days of Macintosh computers. They are ubiquitous in the desktop publishing industry world wide with zero competitors in sight (at least once quark dodo’ed out). Now that they’ve introduced their monthly leasing structure for their flagship products they are not only destroying what they’ve built up until now but more importantly they’ve stopped cultivating younger generations of loyal users who will choose other photo editing software packages that have a relatively minimal one price tag. No ones going to stop using photoshop who’s used it for years but students and other new users will be using other more affordable options. Basically I rant to say that adobe decided to bleed the goose that laid the golden egg for bigger quarterly gains. Suckers ruining a good thing. But this app for the iOS is on point and tight, if you know what your doing and not just interested in pre-fab filters there’s an impressive amount of photo editing options here. Get it together before that golden egg laying goose flys the coop.
Best editing app ever!!!!
by sammi celi c. on 2018/10/26 03:57
I love this app! It’s also free and I am so thankful for that because I don’t have that much money but I love taking photos it’s one of my hobbies. On this app u can add filters that look awesome. You can also add blur which makes the photo look great! This app is rlly easy to use and I rlly like it. Btw don’t like ever write reviews for apps but this app is the best and a must have for photographers or anyone rlly. I have pics that I don’t rlly like and want to delete but before I delete them I edit them in this app the I rlly like how it turns out and ❤️ the pick. I also recommend huji which is not rllya editing app but it’s a camera app, but I like ps express more. I high recommend this app fr yo. Get it lol. (Sry for any grammar mistakes I didn’t reread it cuz rn I want to edit more of my photos) Anyways trust me get this app u won’t regret it. When I tell someone and tell them to trust me on this I mean it and I know it’s true and they may not believe then but in the future they thank me so much. So u may not believe but just try and then maybe like spiritually thank me. P.S. your welcome for recommending it (ik that at least 94% of the people who read this comment will be so thankful, I did my calculations)
A mixed bag...
by GGTriGeek on 2018/11/15 00:19
There are some things I really like about the app, and some things I really dislike. Positives: I really like the ability to create custom looks. This is a huge time saver... pull up a photo, apply your own personal style, and the photo is ready to save. I also like the adjustment tools as a whole. They are intuitive, easy to use, and cover my needs for post processing. Negatives: I hate the social part of the app. Every time I start the app, someone’s hoot pops up and I need to exit this to get to my photos. For social feeds, I use Instagram and I shouldn’t be force fed social media just to modify my pictures. This is a more recent update... you didn’t get that splash screen in the past. Ideally we should be able to disable this in settings. The other negative is the app can be slow or crash at times. This has happened for well over a year, and I originally thought it was my old iPhone. Nope... same issues when I got my iPhone X at the end of last year. It will freeze on a photo and take a couple of minutes to make one adjustment. This doesn’t happen in other photo processing apps I’ve used, just this one. Overall, it’s still the app I use most often for ease of use... I just wish the social splash could be turned off, and that the stability would improve... and I’d give it a 5.
Undeserving of the photoshop name
by storeE8 on 2017/10/14 15:15
With affinity photo and other zillions of this type of app out there, this is kind of an embarrassment. To each their own, and not knocking anyone for liking it, but as a professional, this app - and their others - are not what you’d expect from adobe if you’ve relied on them for desktop software in the past. I can see plenty of instagrammers and selfie takers loving this, and that’s great - it’s nice to go beyond what apple stock apps and Instagram filters have to offer. 👍 However - Their scatterings of iOS apps meant to ‘add up’ to a pseudo-desktop ‘suite’ of features and offerings is exactly that - scattered. And highly frustrating because of it. There should be a much more robust amalgam of these apps for the iPad. Which the competition has already completed, so one must assume that adobe was and is always going to consider their iOS apps as lightweight apps for your phone only. Too bad, really. I appreciate adobe sketch, and I know that some of these apps have some perks and are designed fairly well, so it’s not like incompetence, it’s a plain and metered decision by adobe. With their pricey subscription model on desktop, and this ‘strategy’ for iOS, I can’t see them being top dog for much longer. Affinity and others may swallow them up while they remain somewhat oblivious and/or too profit-minded to survive this mobile/new-school editing software revolution.
Has been my go-to for years now
by Critic#928004562 on 2017/10/11 17:55
I have used the free photoshop express app on several generations of iPhones. Before Apple had editing right there in your iPhone photos. But honestly, even since the Apple editing has been included I still prefer using this Photoshop app. I’m no professional by any means so I have no idea how to articulate what it is that’s better lol but. I feel it’s extremely user friendly and has great options and features/tools to use in the free version (I’ve never even considered the premium). And... if you have used any other photo editing apps then you KNOW what I mean about the apps just suddenly kicking you out. Seriously aggravating when they just suddenly shut down and close the app thereby losing your edits and whatnot. I have never had that issue with this photoshop express. There are no advertisements either like some apps have. Previously, I would have said that I wish it had a couple other features so that I didn’t have to go to another second or third app to doodle on the pics or add a text overlay etc. but it appears as if they have added these things now! So, before I start sounding like a paid advertisement lol I digress.
Best app for amateurs and professionals while on their phone
by Gregknowles22 on 2019/05/08 03:59
I started using Adobe Photoshop in 1992 while in College to become a photojournalist. I remember still the awe I felt going to Mrs. V’s class. What incredible things would I see today? I try to hold on to those feelings in a world now full of altered images. It’s exciting, yet sad, that we seem to have lost ourselves in the realm of the surreal. I believe this app is incredible. There is no competition for handheld devices. Constantly improving while keeping its roots steady. At this point, I use the remove flaws tool as I used the original clone tool with great precision. If you’re at all confused or frightened by all the options photoshop has to offer, my advice to you is the words Mrs. V once told me...Just play. If I could give you any advice for improvement, I’d say look to the filters on instagram. I still prefer their options to any others offered here. And the effects offered by Carbon are brilliant! I’d add a Leica effect for selective focus and unique background pixilation and a hasselblad effect for a medium format look. That’s all. And if I could have my old clone tool with the choice of brushes...I’d be in Heaven. Thank you!
Must have for everyone of all ages and with beginner to advanced knowledge of photo “editing”
by K.C Morgan on 2018/12/19 17:55
It’s everything you can expect from Adobe! The favorite , to me anyway, is the collages variety! It’s not just squares beside each other, you got everything you can imagine including cool shapes like triangles or circles with as many photos as you can want( I don’t know that for sure , but so far I have used a collage with 12 photos and it looked awesome! The shapes also are aligned in many ways to make a huge impact and you can also size them each individually. It literally almost limitless what you can accomplish with these bold and exciting new look of collages! You can also add text with many options of the best fonts and can input them with “templates “ that are basically awesome quotes that you see on Pinterest or Facebook except you can edit the words, font, and color even the alignment ! Highly recommend !!!! I used it to sell things on offer up , eBay, or any site because it enables you to put everything on the first photo along with the price or info in a eye catching design that entices buyers to click to view your item(s)!!!
Always the standard
by gdongusgold on 2019/05/01 08:13
Sure, I’ll get excited about a new app with a unique feature or one with the standard offerings packaged differently enough to qualify as a novelty or disguise itself as a convenience - but they always fail to perform for long (usually get sluggish or think annoying commercials are what I deserve for using the product) and my excitement gives way to rational thought, and rational thinking is the antidote to impulse buying. But I win because while I may be out a couple dollars I learned something and I end up where I was doing well and knew the team on the other side of the app represent the gold standard in their industry. The only less than stellar features I’ve found were in the collage mode where resizing is not as simple as I’d like. Turns out it’s easier to delete the cell or whole collage than it is to edit it or find the help menu in a hurry. Every other feature and function is top notch and you can count on the Adobe team to keep it running smoothly.
Bug with Recent updates (~2mo's ago)
by Bwa236 on 2019/04/09 05:21
I held off writing a review because I hoped Adobe would fix this problem. I enjoy this app very much and it's a robust, useful, full-featured app. BUT....accessing it via the Photos app (e.g., by clicking Edit and using PS Express to edit the photo in the Photos app interface) has become buggy all of a sudden. More than 75% of the time I edit a pic this way, when I go to save it the screen will go black and the little "working" animation will twirl around and around. And it never saves the changes. INFURIATING. Often I will close the Photos app, reopen it and try to edit it again only for the same result. Sometimes a third time is the charm and it will save the photo edits. Opening the PS Express app before doing this doesn't change the outcome. I prefer being able to quickly edit it via the Photos app as the workflow is easier than loading manually in PS Express directly (when I have many to go through). This only started about 2 months ago. I have iPhone 8, 256GB, latest iOS updates. Please please fix this, it's been a bug for long enough. Contact me if you'd like me to video record this happening or for help recreating the issue. Thanks!
My go-to app for quick edits
by Korubisutaa on 2017/12/11 20:13
I love all of the Adobe CC suite apps but this one probably gets the most day to day use. Unlike other editing apps, I've never had a crash and lost work, it is extremely stable, and doesn't lag when applying changes... Unlike some other apps that are badly optimized as far as ram usage. I like that you can make and save your own filters, in other apps I can achieve the same look I want but if I want to apply it to multiple images it's a pain in the neck of remembering the order of settings and their intensity. With PS Express that hassle is no more. It's so versatile too, I can use it to crop and adjust before importing (easily, I might add) into another image editing app, but I can ALSO do the reverse and use PS Express for the finishing touches. It all depends on the task at hand and what I want to achieve. I'd give it five stars if it had layers, though importing into Mix, among others, gives me that option so it's only a minor annoyance as some images could be done fully in Express if it gave the option for layers. But it's a really amazing app nonetheless and I highly recommend it.
I use PS more often than I thought I would
by jbiancalana on 2017/11/19 20:09
I am a hobby photographer, so had a hard time justifying the monthly subscription fee. However, I use the whole suite of Adobe photo manipulation tools more often than I thought I would. In addition, my photography also has significantly improved not just because of post editing, but because I am more thoughtful about what I can do post-editing. For example, I would often take tight photos and shoot jpegs only because I did not take the time to edit my photos. Since I know I will process my photos after a shoot, I don’t take super tight shots because I know I can do a far better job cropping with software than through a viewfinder. Also, I am almost never frustrated from overcropping when taking the photo anymore. I also always shoot raw giving me the additional flexibility to adjust exposure settings if I didn’t get it right the first time. Finally, I am far more selective about what photos I keep since editing is a little time consuming.
Excellent App; Two Suggestions...
by JustaRottenGirl on 2018/01/28 19:13
This will make your photos freaking sparkle! A sweet and free photo editing app that offers a lovely and helpful arrangement of filters, effects, and tools for your general and extra photo needs. It has a sleek design and I genuinely enjoy using it. It made my regular old photos pop within a few seconds- it looked like I’d taken professional photos- pretty impressive! I even edit HD wallpapers to my taste- super sweet. However, there are 2 suggestions I’d make: 1. The ability to save while you’re editing, I.e. ‘save progress’ instead of just saving once at the end. Sometimes I get stopped in the middle of editing to take another photo or just because I have to leave the app. 2. Allow users to apply more than one design effect per save. It’s laid out so that the editing process goes in order from filters/design effects, to cropping, lighting/color/clarity/contrast adjustments, to red eye etc. So you can’t apply more than one design effect per process- ex. If I wanted to add the design effect of ‘soft’ AND ‘spring’ I’d have to edit the first time with one, save it, and edit the new photo again to apply the second design effect- which is a tad annoying because often times I’d like to layer my effects. I usually just edit the new saved photo to curbside this feature. Overall an excellent introduction into photo editing apps- this is making me consider investing in more editing apps. I’m highly pleased with this :) solid 4/5!!
Better!
by Damagetwin2077 on 2018/01/06 20:13
Update 2: Kudos to the developers who actually read these comments and care about user experience. The recent update allows for solid color backgrounds for collages however, this doesn’t completely fix the issue because of a few issues. 1. The color pallets for borders and backgrounds are different. 2. The color sliders for the CMYK and RGB are difficult to get a specific number on and 3. Even if you pick the same color, which is easiest to do using the themes, there is still a hairline border between the edge of the border and the edge of the background. I miss when I could just add radius to the border and not have to mess with the background. Update 1:This app was recently updated but the issue with collages remains. When you apply a radius borders the app creates a white layer that makes your border look terrible. There isn’t a solid fill option to fill the White later just patterns and gradients. The new update is a step backwards. The collage maker is not completely functional because you can't get rid of edges with out Mix. The text editor is woefully under powered compared to Fontcandy.
Love this app
by Lofuel717 on 2019/07/20 02:49
It’s great! Even though I am still slowly learning the ends & outs of everything it has to offer, so far I am all about it! I don’t have a lot of time to sit and work on a photo for a long time very often & with ps express I don’t have to. It’s simple and speedy so I can see good results within a few minutes. You can have a great photo where your smile is perfect but possibly have a few blemishes (or in my case, wrinkles) & with this app you can smooth them away, essentially perfecting your photo. If you have a picture that just needs “something” but you don’t know what it is, you can always use the magic wand & see what this app can do for your picture. I am amazed at a few that I had just about decided to throw away but with one tap they were not only save worthy, they became frame worthy. I highly recommend this app for your photo fixes. There is not anything about it that deserves less than a five star review! All in all a great app!
My “Go To” Photo Editing App
by OhDiedraDarling on 2019/07/29 21:45
PS Express by Adobe is my main “go to app.” Among the 4 or 5 photo apps I most use, PS Express: is my fav.’ I’d estimate I do 60 to 70% of my photo editing in PS Ex. I recall my incompetence w even basic level Adobe Photoshop those days. Photoshop Pro’s higher functions were so beyond my skill they nearly gave me nightmares. After smart phones w infinite apps came along, I found PS Ex’ a quick learn (suiting my habit of reading user manuals only as a last resort 😬). I see positives even in unpleasant changes when I can. In 2007, a repeat DUI offender forever altered my life by crashing into me head-on at high-speed. Till then, I’d enjoyed a familial gift at photography w little time to feed the skill. That awful crash forced me into a less physical lifestyle. I was thus able to pursue photography enough to be homespun into a photo editing junkie :-). Without PS express, I wouldn’t have developed the skills to feed my interest. I consider taking photo’ classes. Thanks PS Express & Adobe!
All Functions Continuously Frozen
by Ironsidefan on 2019/03/19 06:44
I installed this app on my iPhone XS Max around four weeks back. It had a different design user interface that all made sense, and worked. I initially installed it to use its photo mirror reverse feature, but afterward began discovering what all else it was capable of. Several weeks passed which during I was notified and installed an update from the developer. At the end of that period I needed to utilize the mirror reverse feature again, and discovered the changes to the layout of the user interface. From that point until now nothing works. It is all frozen except for a function labeled “Collage”. I notified the developer, and they replied requesting screen captures of what was showing, as well as clarification of the situation. They replied three times altogether, but since have gone “silent”. I told them in my first message that if nothing changed after a week, that I would be permanently deleting their app as in its current state it is nothing more than completely useless when all of its icon controls remain in effect as an “oil painting”. As I have not received any further communication from them tonight I followed through, and permanently deleted their app.
Needed a photo editor that did more than just add filters
by AmandaWaseskuk on 2019/01/06 15:49
This photo editor works great! And so far it is completely free, I have not run into anything that says “premium only” or anything like that. I had access to everything on the app. All you have to do is sign in via Facebook or Google and then you just get to work editing your photos. I had a picture that I took at Christmas that had some red eye, blemishes, and the sun light made a very weird line across my forehead in the picture. I was able to fix all of these things as well as add a great filter, which was hard to choose because they have so many! And it gives you the option to add a little bit of each one instead of just messing with how much of one filter like most ones do. You are completely creatively free in how you choose to edit your photos. I’m glad I downloaded this and will probably use it to fix up most of not all of my photos in the future!
My staple
by Hhxfjmcdh on 2018/12/12 01:57
I’ve been using these Photoshop Expresses for years. I’ve been through 4 progressively newer models of iPads, about to get my 5th, & Photoshop Express has always been my staple. I like to draw & dink around and I mess with photos a lot. I have more than a dozen different photo editors, collage makers, and artsy apps. But still, none have come even close to what Express can do. Enlight is good but not close. The best thing about The Adobe Expresses is that they constantly update and add new features and mini apps to go along with the others. I’ve been thinking for a few weeks now that I wish they had better filters to work pictures that’s available while in Express Fix. Low & behold what do I find as I opened the app, a page showing off all the new filters available. Now I gotta go look at the other new stuff. Wow its almost like Christmas! Oh wait, timings off. 🎄Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays. Now go get Express.
Freelance to Professional
by Leandera Greenwood on 2017/09/20 13:25
This app is absolutely stunning! From allowing you to rotate and transform horizontal axis views ect. from the new update, to color blocking, lighting, and every possible filter and feature in between it is a high recommendation to both beginners and pros alike. I've used this app for about 4 years now and never once had it failed me. To think, I started off as a beginner finding random things to photograph and awkwardly squatting in the supermarket aisle so "the bottles hit the lights just right" to now having my hobby as a career! The biggest shocker is all I have ever used for my photography is a simple iPhone 6 camera.. My pro secret is any camera is the perfect camera with the right editor. The only thing I would like to recommend is layering, like having one filter on and being able to add another ontop of it. But until then, I'll manage by just saving one filter edit to my phone and simply re-editing it.
Great for all enthusiasts
by photosynthesislove on 2019/08/02 05:09
It’s pretty fantastic - I’m runnining it on N iPad Pro with raw files from a 5d mark III and it has no problems at all - I love the mirror effect but I wish it would allow for fuller frame or an option for a rectangular finish - either way it slays the other tablet and phone apps I’ve used in the past to be frank this is the first time I’ve been satisfied with the functionality and creative flexibility in any photo finishing app that I was able/willing to travel for 6 weeks with no computer - the save function “to camera roll” only was my number one complaint on the trip - ne ice to enjoy a batch function for us Lightroom lovers that just need a temp correction for a fbook post - would love to know if that is coming or already available in another app. Bravo any way - super functional easy to use easy to run on this iPad anyway - an imagine on the larger iPad Pro w the 6gb ram it would be starling fast - 3 Cheers =)
Awesome even for Amateur
by Mc12062011 on 2018/10/25 15:38
Unfortunately I don’t know much about photography, and I’m also a beginner artist. I needed to edit a photo for both clarity and color of a cat. I’m working with colored pencils which is especially challenging. This app has so many options! Even as an amateur, I was able to play around with the options to make my photo easier to use as my reference. I still have a lot to learn on taking photos that show detailed fur, but this app really gave me something I could work with. My cat is an orange tabby and I was able to get colors that closer matched her actual tint. I was also able to save it to my photo roll so I have both original (although this app does state that original is never lost) and the edited version. It will accomplish more than I will ever comprehend so I think both experienced and novices will find this app very helpful.
Pretty good
by iTif on 2019/06/25 19:28
Update: my beef still lies with the watermark. If you frame your pic in any fashion, There is a solid chance watermark is not going to end up where you want it. If only way to change it is to leave your photo, go into settings, put it where you think is a good placement, and try the whole process again. Would be great if you could take care of this when going to save the photo (which is when the watermark is added). I’ve been using this app for at least 3 years I would say. I love the addition of the watermark, but would REALLY love it if you could adjust placement once it’s been framed. The black highlight over a white frame just clutters up the image. Changing the watermark color would help, but still not as clean as a white watermark over the image. It would also be great if the user could move the image within the frame (if framing image), as opposed to the current workflow (unframe it, recrop, reframe, hope the image sits where you want it, repeat).
Glitchy
by MezzoMH on 2018/08/16 05:11
I love Photoshop, but recently it’s really glitchy when I am making collages. It stretches the picture when I try to save it to my camera roll, and any text becomes very distorted. I’ve been having to screenshot my collages and crop them from my camera roll. It’s also really glitchy when trying to add text to the collages. It keeps randomly switching the text/themes. It will also randomly undo things I’ve done, and it’s hard to get it back to the way I want it. It sometimes even freezes, and I can’t do anything with it and have to close the app, then go back in to start over. If I could find another app that makes edits as nice as Photoshop, I’d definitely use it instead. It’s just become so frustrating... It takes me at least three times as long to do a collage, just working around the glitches. I haven’t run into any issues while just editing photos, but there are definitely some problems with the collage portion of the app that need to be worked out.
Great but could easily be greater...
by Anarobotic on 2019/07/24 15:20
Currently has a few bugs and glitches, especially as it correlates with your photos library and it’s own saves etc. A few other little features would make this a stellar app, like being able to isolate (maybe by drawing a lasso tool) in order to perform edits on particular areas of the photo, dial in specific colors in HSL and to edit/composite a few layers would be super! Also, to simultaneously apply filters, like HDR & White Balance, and “Looks” etc. All in all, I’m very grateful for the app and find it really helps do what Photos simply cannot. Ps. Would love to subscribe, but being we’re a non-profit w/ limited resources for marketing and communications, adding 9.99 a month for something we’ll only publish or use a couple times a month (as we haven’t dedicated staff for it) is a tad steep. It’s not that 9.99 breaks the bank, but when added to the total tech & communications budget it adds up 😅
Puts limits on files
by CleverNameGoesHere on 2019/09/03 20:53
Pictures I edit using this app and then save to my camera roll are unable to be seen by other apps. For example, I edit a picture & save to my camera roll, then open Snapchat to post it and the picture isn’t there. All other pictures appear except ones that I’ve edited using this app. (The problem isn’t limited to Snapchat, that’s just an example!) The pictures are visible in my camera roll in the built in iOS Photos but not if I’m viewing the iOS camera roll from a different app. There is absolutely no support for this app. None. I tried for hours to get someone to help me solve the problem of the disappearing photos and all they would tell me is to go to the forums... and if you’ve been to the forums you know how unhelpful they are. I know it’s a free app but if you’re going to put restrictions on photos you need to be upfront about it. I’ve paid for various things to be unlocked in the past but all of those are lost because everything is now free and yet I can no longer post or share the photos I’ve edited to the media I want. What a joke.
Applicable for entry level to more advanced users
by GreenBayGirl on 2018/12/22 20:03
The thing to note is that this is an “express” version of the well-known Photoshop program by Adobe. As an app that is not intrusive on my phone and does not demand high monthly subscription fees, I absolutely LOVE this app! I use it on my iPad Pro, but I also have more advanced editing apps there. I also have this on my iPhone 7 Plus and Note 8 and enjoy using it on all platforms. It is wonderful that a person without any knowledge of what a ‘layer’ is can easily navigate their photo edits. For those who are more advanced, you can still save edits as layers and export to other versions of Photoshop. I appreciate the versatility of this aspect allowing non experts to still take advantage of Adobe’s more basic uses while not preventing a pro from getting a quick start on edits on their phone or tablet. Thanks for this!!!
You’ve got my vote!
by Michael R. Lee on 2019/08/26 02:12
I downloaded Photoshop Express mainly because I have Adobe CC on my Mac Pro which has Photoshop CC and many more, of course. But I loaded it on my iPhone to add a little convenience. I figured it would give me a chance to work on my school projects on the run. But to my surprise it’s been a great discovery. I’m still working out the kinks but it’s been pretty easy to use. Really fun. 2 👍🏾’s up! MRLee Update: I really love PE. I use it all the time. At home, away from home, while sitting & waiting to be seen by my Doctor. I even find myself going back in older files to do photo touch ups, as well as, using it for special effects on my portraits. It’s great! MRLee Update: I’m using PE again to get me out of a spot with my homework in a Storyboarding course. I need to hand this project in by 11:59 p.m. tonight and this is the quickest way to do it. Thanks again. MRLee
Works great on the go
by Bertactive on 2019/08/22 05:08
Works great on the go small issues with sending to PC and would be nice to have the ability to layer fonts when you’re feeling a little more artistic and everything else you need is in the app being its a simplified version multiple font layers is my only critique within the app interface possibly add the capability to use live icons like Bitmoji can be used in Snapchat with a live figure that’s Re-sizable doing different motions like. Playing air guitar, waiting tapping foot, thinking rubbing chin maybe a Looping pop up comment/thought bubble or rocking out would be a cool addition with seasonal or holiday themed additions you can keep but overall it gets the job done and communicates well enough to send the file to other apps or pc for greater edits in full PS. Two thumbs up from me in overall performance!,.. Rob Napier #Duuuuvaaalll!
AMD
by AMDLP on 2018/04/13 04:31
Lots of really nice photo editing and collage features -for free! I’m not a photographer or into photography at all but I enjoy fixing up the images if I’m going to print them. Once you tinker around with a few pics and see what each tool does to correct/enhance the photo it becomes a breeze to use. I’m using it for the first time and found it user friendly and intuitive. The only criticism I’d give it is that when you undo an action it doesn’t tell you which action you’ve undone. For someone like me who doesn’t know what each feature does on regular photoshop on a desktop, it’d be nice to know each time what I’m “undoing”. Even without that feature, there are a lot of useful tools to enhance your phone pictures without making them look too filtered or overdone i.e. noise and color reduction, shadows, red eye and blemish correction,etc.
Powerful handheld editor
by Bobaque on 2017/11/23 18:30
With a few more additions, this could be a one-stop-shop, all-in-one editor. Here’s what I love. The algorithms do wonders with Highlights, Shadows, Blacks, Whites. Saving your own ‘looks’ is a great feature for adding the same effects to multiple photos taken in the same lighting and scene conditions. Here’s my wishlist for further improvements: - Transferring ‘looks’ that have been created and saved on one device to my other devices, or to friends, or to your adobe online community. I created a magical ‘look’ on my iPhone that I cannot seem to recreate on my partner’s iPhone or my iPad. - Allow ‘looks’ that have already been created to be edited, or at least allowing to see what settings/recipe concocted that ‘look’ would be fantastic as well. - Mid-tones slide control. White, Blacks, Highlights, Shadows,...and Mids. - Vignetting with controls would be a nice basic feature that is currently missing. The current vignetting preset is too strong and cannot be adjusted. - Selective Color saturation editing. For example, to knock down a bit of saturation or slightly tweak hue of greens or yellows in the photo, but keep the blues or reds, etc. as-is. - Whites glow control for adding ethereal effects. - Edge sharpen as an addition to general sharpen. Cheers!
I wish we could do more.
by Anya S. 0607 on 2017/11/15 03:44
Thanks for responding. I’m sorry if I took too long to answer the email, but I emailed the photos. The first photo is the original, and the second one is the edited photo. Thank You so much! Original Review: When I first opened the app, I thought “What a fake app. It doesn’t even look real.”. Those first assumptions were wrong. I pulled up an image of the solar system. I wanted to change the image completely into something else. I have and always wanted to photoshop something, so I was ready for excitement. By the time I finished, the solar system was a fireball. Yet, I was still disappointed. I expected to be able to make it look like I was there, in the solar system. Everything I did on this app, I could do easily and quicker on InShot. If I could give this app 2 1/2 stars, I would. Isn’t Photoshop supposed to be editing yourself into it. I want to put myself in the photo badly, and I bet other people do too. I’ve seen people Photoshop people into Paris or Jupiter. It’s an amazing skill I wish this app could do. I will keep this app because it is semi useful, but I will wait for my request for an update. To be fair, adjusting Contrast and fixing mess-ups is Technically photoshop. Please respond back. I am hoping you can find a way to let people express themselves by photoshopping their self into places.
Nice to have but not the best
by CornBreadEarl&TheGang on 2019/01/16 14:48
PS for mobile devices should be combined with at least LR so bouncing between files isn’t a hassle and so there should still be an option to edit raw files within PS. Also, if it doesn’t now, I feel that PS should be able to sync with PS CC 2019 so further edits could be made. Overall though I feel PS for the iPad should be more in depth. Even the base model 2018 iPad could handle some tasks. Let’s make it happen. Make me want to invest I’m am iPad Pro for artistic purposes and be able to use the devices as such. Right now everything still solely relies on a MacBook and or laptop. Which is fine because it’s been that way, but for myself and for somebody who never gets stuck in the same type of office space, it would be nice if the iPad had more flexibility so it could be a more prosumer device compared to what it is now. Anyway, still love Adobe mobile apps, just hope to see them shine through as time progresses.
First 3 hours - First project
by Gagethan on 2018/07/20 18:21
I am very impressed with the capability of this application. It offers the widest range of tools of any editing app I’ve seen on the market, and allows for multiple add-on applications that help to expand that tool belt and all for free. I would suggest that with all of the apps available together you could accomplish any goal in editing without needing to look at any other software. As well, they have made it easy to jump between these applications while working on the same project. This must be the closest thing to having my full editing bay I am used to condensed into a simple to use, one stop, medium right at my finger tips. After searching for any competing application that would allow me to dissect existing files and work on a project with layers, I was close to caving in and trying a paid app that I do not feel would have been worth the purchase. This was an invaluable download. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in editing or photo touch ups. My only suggestion would be to steer away from the ease of access style HUD which lists filters and correction wizards most immediately, and move to something more heavily concentrated on the tools professionals will be looking for. All in all, it was easy to navigate to these features.. it was just a little tedious.
Simple, decent features
by anaspis on 2019/04/29 18:06
I’ve only just started using the app and I have a paid CC subscription, so my opinion is skewed in that manner. But I really like the app! It doesn’t have the same functionality as desktop Photoshop, but then again, I didn’t expect it to. It makes photo editing simple, whether you’re trying to improve the coloring/detail of your photo, cover some blemishes, or literally stifle your image with a filter. Quick and easy. My only complaint is the beta camera affects choices are, uh, lacking. Not in variety—in quality. If you try the app you’ll understand. It’s not a major complaint, especially because the feature is in beta and I probably won’t use it. But for people who really like vintage effects on their photos, this app will not (realistically) create that for you.
Thank you and don’t remove ability to edit in photos app with app
by nearlycanadian on 2018/09/24 05:16
I recently was frustrated beyond belief because you did an “update “ of the app that meant one could no longer be on a photo in your photos library and use photoshop express to edit. I voiced my severe frustration with this change as it means as a photographer who has several thousand images editing using the app only in their app means it’s impossible to use the app to edit as no one wants to navigate through several thousand images to edit your specific file . You changed it back so after investigating other apps to use for photo editing my Favourite is back and will be my go to. Please don’t make this change again it is of no use to anyone. Thank you for changing it back !!!5 stars
Destroyed
by Zero7starz on 2018/12/16 18:17
Welp. Now I have to find a new editor. I never understand why companies think it’s a GOOD IDEA to take away features. This app used to be amazing and it auto adjust images perfectly. Well they took that feature away and left only the magic wand. So now, either I get way too much effect or it barely does anything to make the image look better. I’m frustrated and angry about this. Frankly I didn’t have time to go shop for another photo editor to use on my mobile but now I have to stop everything I’m working on because they took that away in the middle of me editing a month’s worth of photos. To keep the consistency, it also destroyed what work I had already done. Thank you adobe for being the absolute biggest pain in my side this holiday season. So to sum up: If you were looking for a photo editing app that works fantastically well with quick and easy edits you best look somewhere else. This app will no longer help you unless you want to sit and tweak dozens of sliders for hours on end. That’s the main reason I never use Snapseed!!
The best minimalist app on the app store!
by average review on 2018/03/26 00:03
They say that this app was created for those who need to “edit photos on the fly” and, with that in mind, they include what I can only assume are the most requested/used “photo editing” tools for the filter-obsessed, selfie-addicted, instagramillennial generation. I guess making a fresh-poppin app that’s both hip and dope at the same time turned out to be vastly more profitable than the old business model, developing versatile, and useful mobile photo-editing tools. Unfortunately, those who find such tools useful are vastly outnumbered by the throngs of people who only need a quick way to make their lives look less average than they really are. So, for what it is, I guess it works good. Of course, they did set the bar pretty low. It’s easy to make an awesome app if you remove all of the complex functionality. But, sure, four stars. It’s not like they actually say this is a useful app for photo editing professionals. It is what it is. By the way, if anyone knows of a good mobile app that offer the same set of tools that PS Touch used to have, please let me know. I was one of the fifteen poor slobs who actually used the thing and it’s obvious that Adobe is really only interested in money at this point so, I don’t see them bringing it back any time in the near future.
Mandatory login is trash
by Ezb1333333ezb on 2019/05/25 10:30
Support responses are along the lines of “Dear User we require more inputs.” Nobody from Adobe (who understands English) reads these or cares what we think, or has cared in years — a fact they made abundantly clear when they moved to the Creative Cloud pricing structure. They did far worse than alienate me as a user of this worthless free app, they lost me as a 20 year Photoshop customer: I’m at 6.0 and will never update to CC. Be assured that your words to/about Adobe fall on deaf ears, when they run out of money and die it will be the most deserved tech business failure death spiral in recorded history. You know why this app has a 4.8 rating? Because it resets for the current version to give devs a chance to fix their stuff and not be dinged for bad reviews on old buggy versions. Adobe just keeps pushing through fake and useless “updates” so they boost their rating after too many of us complain about being forced to log in. If they gave you a dumb reply be sure to re submit your review when they “update” it.
Great app!
by La Super Gravitania on 2017/10/27 21:43
I had been using photoshop for years, so I decided to give their app a try, and It has been my go to app to work my photos for years now. It has all the basic tools to enhance a good photo. It doesn’t do miracles! If your photo isn’t good. It might be hard to fix it. I don’t use the filters that much because I like “normal” looking photos, and their filters alter the image to much, but some people like that, so I guess is ok. He are a few things I would change: 1 vignette - I would add it to the tools section like other apps do and add a slider to it to change the intensity of it. 2 frame - besides being able to crop it, it would be nice to be able to fit it in the screen or give it a margine like other apps like InstaSize do. That is really helpful. Specially because it gives the image a white background. 3 touch screen - I also use an app called paint effects because It allows me to change only parts of the photograph without altering the entire image. They do good use of the touchscreen. It is like the mouse for the computer. You select the tool you want and drag your finger over the screen to apply it to an area. It is genius and super simple to use. This is a great app. I really recommend it.
Keeps requesting a new password
by LISNC on 2019/06/16 01:37
Great editing app, tried many and this one ranks at the top of the iOS photo editing apps with great features. One very annoying issue is it’s amnesia when it comes to the user password. After every several sessions (wasn’t able to come up with an exact one, but somewhere between 3 and 7) it stops recognizing the login password. It does offer a link to reset the password, however anything you have used in the past or resembles a previous password is denied. It is a real annoying issue which I read someone else complaining about. Unless this is by design, not sure for what reason, I wish they did something about it. Would have given 5 stars or more if it was possible if not for this problem.
Best editing app for my photography EVER!!!
by Alex Everstar 🙃 on 2019/08/05 21:51
One thousand stars for this! I love the editing process of photography, it’s the best. It shows the true skills of a photographer if they can edit the photo and make it look better than the original picture. Wow people, intrigue them into wanting to know more about said picture. Trying to find an editing app is a hassle, because some kinda work, and a lot of times some don’t. Adobe PS Express Works, 10/10 times. No matter what photo I’m trying to edit. The app works. Of course there are always going to be downsides to an app. There always is, and always will be. I have a iPhone 6 Plus, my friend who uses this app has a iPhone X. His loads faster, doesn’t do anything mine does. Now I don’t know if it’s because they have a better model of the iPhone but my adobe takes forever to load and crashes when I’m in the middle of editing. Sometimes when I click a photo to edit, it freezes the entire phone for over a minute. I’m hoping in the future updates the performance will be better than it is. Overall though this app is a MUST HAVE FOR ANYONE Who is into photography, who needs to edit their photos because this is it guys.
New way to get into the app is garbage
by chocolate thunder with a lil lightning on 2018/09/17 17:16
I have loved this app for YEARS. I updated it the other day and now instead of just using it I had to sign in with an Adobe ID or Facebook. I don’t have Facebook so creating a new account was a minor inconvenience. You want my data. I get it no problem. The problem I have is not being able to use the app on the fly like I could before. I could take a photo and edit it with this app without having to create a new photo. This HAS become a big inconvenience. Now instead of being able to edit the photos with this app inside of photos app, I have to open it up PS Express and then bring in the photo. It takes more time and now I have two photos instead of being able to just edit the original. This is time consuming when you are at an event and want to post a great photo on Twitter or Instagram. The app still produces great work but this new functionality bites. Please change it back.
Love all the different options
by 00Chelle00 on 2018/05/19 19:16
I love this app! I take so many pictures it’s ridiculous... over 25,000 on my phone and I’m out of memory now! Lol I had the desktop version of this app before my computer messed up and I used it all the time.... it was amazing! I’m by far no expert on editing photos... I need all the help I can get actually! I really like how you can bounce from one app to the other and back again to do further editing that this app doesn’t provide. The only problem is when I do this, after I finish editing my photo and try to come back my photo isn’t coming back with the edits. There’s a problem somewhere in the transfer from one app to the other! I hope this is soon fixed because when it does work it’s pretty awesome!
No longer able to use without an email address
by Naja12168 on 2019/02/13 20:46
I have used this app for a couple of years now, and it’s relatively easy to use. I enjoy the features provided in it, as I use it for basic things like color altering and cropping. I went to go to use it just now, however, it won’t let me access the features without registering my Facebook or Gmail email, or without getting an Adobe ID. I never needed anything before. Now, you must register in some way in order to use the features? That seems unfair to me. I don’t need another company sending me email. I don’t need another company tracking my movements or trying to sell me stuff, which is the main reason why businesses request email addresses. It’s a shame, because I truly enjoyed this app. I wish I could continue to access the features like before. I was able to use it just fine two days ago.
Great app, but raw support for newer cameras is lacking
by Sengoku_us on 2018/12/05 00:09
Overall this is a great app. Could do with support for nested folders in the photos app. Also support to import/edit files via the iPad’s ‘File’ app would be great! Ver 7.0 Fuji X100F firmware 2.11 raw files are supported! yay. After updating, “My looks” have been erased. Very annoying. Needs to be a way to export them and import them in cases like this Ver 6.10 Fuji X100F firmware 2.11 raw files currently not supported! Have submitted feedback and a raw file. Has been two app updates since feedback was submitted. Ver 6.6.1 Fuji X100F firmware 2.10 raw files now supported! yay! 5 stars!! It takes a few updates once Adobe has been notified, but they get there in the end. Ver 6.5.2 Fuji X100F raw files still not working. I contacted Adobe about it on ver 6.4. I’m a little upset it has taken so long. Ver 6.4 Fuji X100F firmware version 2.10 raw files do not work (and just after Adobe updated the app to work with firmware 2.00) Ver 6.2.2 Still no RAW support for the X100F, I’m dropping my rating by one star. Especially after I was informed this request would be passed on to the developers. Ver 6.2.1 Especially with Fuji cameras. X100F has been out since Feb 2017, and it is now Jan 2018 and the X100F raw files are not yet supported.
No more Photos shortcut
by moimoiak on 2019/01/10 21:25
I used to edit all my photos in PS Express. In a recent update, the option to use PS Express from the Edit screen in Photos was eliminated. Now instead there’s a shortcut you can add to import into PSE from the Share menu. NBD if you’re editing a single photo, but it’s an extra step that’s a bit of a headache if you’re working with more than that. I find I use PSE a lot less now unless I know I’m only going to work with one photo. The most recent update also turned on a PhotoShop watermark that doesn’t show up until after you’ve saved/exported a photo. I didn’t notice it until after I’d already posted it on a work-related IG account. Then I had to go looking for the option to turn it off. That’s not the kind of feature you should be springing on people with no warning. Now I’m wondering what other surprises I can expect with the next update.
For basic editing photoshop express is my go to app.

I really like the smoothed out look I can get in portraits without pixels or noise effecting my end results. Now I t is almost a a three because except for the wonderful basic editor the rest of the filters , including the premium. It’s kind of sad that a company that is known for advanced powerful software looks like they let kids make their premium filters. Pop art filters would be more useful, and I do like the color recognized in the collage section. I can get three pics together that I love, and the color that is dominant is picked up in the other photos making cohesive and looks nice. It would be a great feature for anyone obsessed with a theme, or a color so their feed looks matchy matchy. I just post if something is interesting, but it’s awesome for the themesters
