Super Awkward, Barely Functional

PS Express
by Binkybo on 2020/08/10 03:48
Solid, does a good job of editing. Effects, crop, etc. I sometimes use an Eye Fi card to transfer raw photos from my camera to iPhone, but PS Express seems to not be able to edit these raw files. Otherwise, a good app.
Best Photo Editing App
by Xtremenitro911 on 2020/08/10 02:48
This is the best photo editing app available in my opinion. It’s easy to use. Lots of options.

I find it incredibly useful in my art projects. Really helps me develop new ideas.
Greatest photo touch up app ever!
by Chriswilis on 2020/08/10 00:37
Use the bandaid to get rid of all tiny imperfections. Great photos take a little bit of “cheating” and PS Express is extremely easy and simple to use.

Missing Basic Controls
by Jackie Martling on 2020/08/09 19:35
Head over to your Lightroom department and steal some of their controls. There is no “confirm” button as you make an edit. It’s too easy to make a mistake on an iphone. This isn’t desktop. It’s too difficult to undo mistakes. speaking of Lightroom. None of the integrations work. I tried opening a photo straight from Lightroom mobile and it does nothing. This app is trying too hard to be like the desktop version. It needs simplicity and you have that in your Lightroom app. Take note from there and redesign this. It’s currently useless on an iPhone. I needed to edit out some people in the background of an image quickly and it was just painful.
Love this app!it’s allowed me to do something fun and easy with photos

by photosynthesislove on 2020/08/09 00:16
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 =)

I still love my expensive desktop PhotoShop, BUT this was a surprise I did not expect to like that much, especially for free. Editing capabilities are basic, but really that’s often all you need. I love the collage building application! It’s really fun to create collages for social media, family, friends, Church newsletters, etc.

Clunky; Adobe Makes It All So Complicated
by torrie62 on 2020/08/07 19:56
Not sure why when Adobe is such a leader in photo graphic capabilities their apps are so limited in scope and options. So little functionality takes so much time and money and more Adobe apps. Just sad. Give us more for less and more people will buy.

Adobe photoshop editing app review
by anniemericle on 2020/06/18 15:51
I’ve only recently started using this app! It’s been on my phone for a while but i didn’t really have any interest in it. My phone used to be my mom’s and she had all the Adobe apps because she worked for the company! Anyways moving to the review part of this. I found it to be helpful to edit my photos that I took either of nature or myself or friends or find cool photos on the internet and kind of add on to their beauty. I then discovered the discovery page where people share their edits. I love it! I’ve always wanted people to see what I can do with photography as photography has a very special place in my heart. I love how people can like your photos. It’s like Instagram but it’s not like Instagram. What I mean by that is people share photos about their lives or what seems important to them and whether someone likes it or not you don’t have to worry about people thinking otherwise. The thing that separates this app from any other social media is there are no area for comments. I know comments are like the danger zones in social media! It’s scary to enter the comments not knowing what someone may think of what you post. This app makes me feel safe and comfortable about what i post. So over all I would recommend this app to anyone from 9 and up!
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.
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)
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.
So much fun!
by YachtieM on 2020/07/03 12:32
I’m having a lot of fun designing my own inspirational posts from my own photos. Adobe PsX makes this very easy with the editing of each layer. There could be some minor improvements, eg in the stroke for fonts (I haven’t figured out to cancel out of that once it’s in place without deleting the text and starting over completely) and the choice background color of the message in combination with the font color (which I would like to be able to make my own combinations for), or the spot correction that doesn’t allow for spot darkening/lightening, as far as I can tell. Overall this app provides a lot of excellent features. There are also other Adobe apps that connect into it with easy, but I haven’t had the need to use them in conjunction with this one. My concern is that at some point Adobe will turn around and charge me for use of the whole thing or have a monthly subscription for it making an older version obsolete, as is my experience with another Adobe product I used for years and don’t use enough to get a monthly for. This trepidation and minor adjustment mentioned above (maybe I need to check out the help section on this) made me drop a star. In the end Adobe is amazing and does deliver with its photo development apps.
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.
Please help🙏🏻

Hello, I know I probably won’t get a response but it’s worth a shot. I have downloaded more photo editing apps than you can imagine. I have tried so hard to figure this issue out and I can’t for the life of me. So I’m really desperate at this point. Can you please tell me how to resize an image without compromising the photo? PSexpress gives you the aspect ratio presets for different social media platforms to choose from. But, it doesn’t matter what I choose because it always cuts off my photo. I don’t want to do that. I want to be able to fit in the FULL size photo. If it means I could crop it into being a full sized photo, I would be willing to loose on the quality. And, I don’t want to put it on a white background so that the photo fits in that square because I would still be loosing on the photo. I want to be able to resize to whatever dimension I need to in order to fit the photo in different social media platforms. I know that a lot of these platforms automatically compress the photo for you but, I would like to resize it before I upload so I don’t compromise the photo, and it doesn’t get cut off. I have watch many videos yet, I can never get it. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could suggest what I can do to fix this frustrating problem. I would be so grateful!!
Easy to use

Great if you have an online store. My god this shaved about 40min per picture compared to what I was using before for stark white-flat-lays. Basically you only need basic understanding of... using apps... and you’ll be able to mess around with this and figure it out even if you’ve never used it before. Honestly. It’s user friendly IMO and way less “computer person” (lol) than the full photoshop computer program, yet you can edit pictures and make them look nearly as professional, or just as, depending on what you’re doing (like in my case to make the white backgrounds- this app lets me make pro-level ones). If you just want a picture to edit your selfies, this is probably a bit more advanced photoediting than say, FaceTune, and you probably need to know how to edit pix a bit more than you do on that app. But for anything professional, products, to make nature/scenic pix pop, to add text, etc- it’s fantastic. Also, it makes the best collages of any app I’ve ever used. Hands down. I really never review apps, but I love this one. And I love the sister apps that go with it. Fantastical. Seriously have no complaints that I can think of.
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)!!!
It’s ok
by L1zz1e P on 2020/07/28 06:30
Use it every day but that’s bc the other one isn’t showing up. the previous adobe all access version better for ipad. like fresco a lot tho - i think adobe needs to work on not only creating new products like fresco but empowering the community of creatives better. adobe bridge and lightroom now have many overlaps —- no one young uses bridge but it’s an imperative application!!! empower your community w knowledge. this isn’t about creating a super user friendly dumb down adobe bc you want regular people to use it... this should be focused on empowering designers of all breeds, whether graphic illustration photographer etc. LASTLY - YOU NEEED A LIVE WORK OR MOODBOARDING TOOL LIKE ENVISION FOR PHOTOSHOOTS and moodboards that can literally take the CD from an interactive call sheet where all members of the board can discuss the concepts before, during, and after the photoshoot, not to mention the features that automate create palettes.... adobe envision is the next frontier for you - it’s a creative lab that helps make big creative endeavors as painless as possible.
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.
No longer works for iPhone!
by dancingheart67 on 2020/03/04 14:31
Ok I updated my phone app and very little is open, it says I need a subscription. How is it that it all continues to work on my iPad? I remember paying a one time fee (on my iPhone) that opened the adobe suite in the past. So I can only edit on my iPad only and all the adobe products seem very integrated on my iPad, but not on my iphone nothing works and pictures won’t open between any adobe apps. and I am logged in. I’ve hit restore purchases and nothing happens. There is nowhere in the app to buy any subscriptions or purchases, and nothing works correctly. So I give it three stars because it works (for now) on the iPad and all my purchases are there and open and apps still work, but not at all on the iPhone. And you can’t find any instructions on what to do to get purchases back or where to go to purchase again. There is no way to email the devs in any app. No instructions for iPhone at all and what works on my iPad does not handoff to iPhone! It was great and now is actually worthless (as I do most of my picture taking and editing on my iPhone) unless I airdrop my photos to my iPad.
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.
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.
Used to be amazing.. but keeps getting worse.
by BrendanXC on 2020/08/02 03:34
I used to love this app and everything about it. I’m sure to most professional photographers it may not be much, but for me, it does all I need, plus some. I have used this app for quite some time. There were issues in the past that happened very rarely that I was able to just look past due to the updates and bug fixes. However, now it’s basically not even worth it anymore. Half of the filters don’t work! I’ll tap one (one of my favorites) only to see it puts it back to its original setting and doesn’t put a filter on the photo at all, even though it says I have applied it. Before it would just be a few filters and then like I said before, an app update with bug fixes would help. Not literally 50-60% of the filters don’t work. You tap them only to see they put your photo back to the original setting. And no, this isn’t due to a premium setting type filter either. It’s both premium and basic filters. This app is practically useless now, which is a real shame because it was me favorite for the longest time.
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!
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.
Amazingly easy photo editing app
by Taxykab on 2020/07/18 03:17
This one of the easiest photo editing apps out there. I’ve tried a few and so far I click with this one, i like how the tools are organized and the tool capabilities match the users skill level: beginner, intermediate and advanced. I’ve even used this on the fly at work when I needed to meet a deadline. Photo was too dark so emailed photo to personal email, edited on phone, emailed back to work email. I would give this app 4 and 3/4 stars if I could because there are a few issues that annoy me. 1) I like the photo collage feature - but developers - LET ME PRINT A COLLAGE TO AN 8x10 photo paper size!!! Some of us old schoolers want to PRINT the collage, not see it online. 2) Developers - increase the # of photos I can add to a collage. 3) Developers - please please please - organize photos like Apple so it is searchable by All/Day/Month/Year. It is a pain to scroll through a year of photos, on my phone, to find/edit the one I want.
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!
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!
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.
Crash Central!
by Ikkibod on 2020/07/30 18:03
I manly use Cliqz because of all the crashes, mid edit. The cloning is awful, but I do love the fonts and that’s the only reason I keep it. Not memer friendly😡 July 2020 update: Now with the newest updates it crashes even more frequently and WORSE, the colors of the font changes dramatically when set. IE; ALL reds turn pink, ALL blues turn purple, and so on and so on. PS has gotten worse than ever😡😡😡. Well, the font colors are stable again but the frequent crashes are still maddening. I have to constantly save each little edit so that I don’t constantly have to go back and start over. I’m a ‘memeologist’ (my own term) and I’m on photoshop many hours a day. The $35 ‘pro upgrade’ is outta the question until the current problems I’m having are straightened out. I still have to use Cliqz in conjunction with PS to do my work. Sorry 😐 Well today, July 30, 2020, I lost the ability to clone, warp, cut out. Every time I click on the pencil edit key it takes me to ‘edit in Spark Post’ Adobe Park is a $10 mo. add on I don’t want or need. What makes me insane is I’m in mid-edit with numerous memes I’m making and an stuck now. Crashes everyday and now this?😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
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.
Text Feature
by AECOON on 2020/04/08 16:18
As per their request, I am reviewing the text feature. It’s the least I could do in return for this amazing app & those who develop it. The text feature is GREAT for making social media posts, memes, or just a funny photo to send to your best friend (yes!) The best part about the text feature is that it has templates; so that really helps make your finished product look polished and less amateur. But you don’t have to use a template; you can freestyle it. You can change the font, color, shadow, etc. It’s great for business use and personal use. If I had to ask for anything, it would be: 1)more font options 2)the ability to change the text opacity (I wish I had the app pulled up next to me, in some instances you CAN change the opacity but not always and I can’t remember which function provides this) Also, the text option itself isn’t available for desktop (most of the features aren’t available for the desktop app) Overall, the text feature is simple and straight forward. The template feature is awesome. Hollistically, this app is perfect and then some; and it’s free! Original Review: 5 stars Perfect. And then better. And then perfect. And then more features! It’s so great in functionality, it’s intuitive, the results...your photographs are AWESOME. AND ITS FUN TO USE! This app actually does feel like a true gift; I don’t ever find myself taking it for granted. (Did I mention that it was free?) THANK YOU ADOBE THANK YOU PHOTOSHOP LOVE ASH
Great for all enthusiasts
by photosynthesislove on 2020/08/09 00:16
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 =)
Great Achievements
by East Beth on 2020/06/22 01:24
I have nothing bad to say about this photo app because it’s a Great App . I belong to some photo restoration groups on Facebook , and have been given rave reviews on a lot of photos I’ve worked on . I’m always asked what program I use I recommend this app , and they too have great results with repairing and restoring photos for free . We don’t charge anything for the service that we give to our group members , some photos are beyond help but I give them a try to show the person I put time and effort in trying to achieve the results they expect from our group members . The app is easy to use and gives great results - it gives many options and filters to work with . I gave it a Five Star rating , because I really like it and you will not be disappointed in downloading and using it . And look into the new updated Versions of PhotoShop .
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 😅
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.
Puts limits on files

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.
So close to being super useful...just misses the mark.

I downloaded this app with the expectation that it would be as useful both for my art business as a way to make quick composites of my stock and, personally to make cute collages of my son. The inability to manually manipulate the shape, placement, and size of each photo makes it extremely frustrating to use. Say nothing of the fact that you can’t adjust the image to fit in the window. Honestly, it’s faster and less frustrating for me to just get out the laptop when I want to make a collage. There are several (albeit less reputable) websites where it’s also easier. That said, the photo editor is fun and I appreciate the variety of formatting for the collage background, so that you can be sure your work will show correctly on Insta or Facebook. Just not what I expected from Photoshop🤷🏻‍♀️
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!!!
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!

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!
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
Upset With New Restrictions
by LochNat on 2020/01/20 21:11
I’ll start off by saying this has by far been the best photo editing app I’ve ever used. For years it’s been my go-to, reliable platform for editing my pictures, and it never fails to deliver. However, today I opened the app and noticed many features are marked with a star symbol. Further investigation told me that marked features are available free for a limited time, and that soon they will have to be purchased. I understand certain features being restricted but the marked features included most of the filters, many of the light/color adjustments (like noise reduction and HSL), the before-and-after viewing tool, and more. I always remember these being available and very useful tools and I’m pretty upset to know they’ll be leaving soon and I’m concerned that the app won’t be able to deliver as much without making a purchase.
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.
Useful, but kind of a rip off
by Luiten01 on 2020/04/22 23:12
I’ve been using PS express for a while, and I find it really handy. It’s nice to be able to do some basic editing on my phone when I don’t want to go through the whole process of uploading my photos to my computer to photoshop them. Generally it’s not bad, but I recently uninstalled and reinstalled it, I was supposed to be getting a phone upgrade but have postponed, and when I reinstalled it some features that I’ve been using for literal months were suddenly part of the ‘pro’ version, which costs a monthly fee instead of being a one time purchase. Not only am I totally unwilling to pay a monthly fee for an app that is nice, but not exactly all that and a bag of chips, but it feels like a gross misuse of their power for them to make features that they’ve had for a long time seem like they’re part of the new update that costs money. Absolutely ridiculous.

PS Express
by Binkybo on 2020/08/10 03:48
Solid, does a good job of editing. Effects, crop, etc. I sometimes use an Eye Fi card to transfer raw photos from my camera to iPhone, but PS Express seems to not be able to edit these raw files. Otherwise, a good app.

Missing Basic Controls
by Jackie Martling on 2020/08/09 19:35
Head over to your Lightroom department and steal some of their controls. There is no “confirm” button as you make an edit. It’s too easy to make a mistake on an iphone. This isn’t desktop. It’s too difficult to undo mistakes. speaking of Lightroom. None of the integrations work. I tried opening a photo straight from Lightroom mobile and it does nothing. This app is trying too hard to be like the desktop version. It needs simplicity and you have that in your Lightroom app. Take note from there and redesign this. It’s currently useless on an iPhone. I needed to edit out some people in the background of an image quickly and it was just painful.

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 =)

Photoshop is and always has been the standard by which all other photo editing software is measured.
Really good app. Love the collage building!
by Kim101112 on 2020/08/08 04:18
I still love my expensive desktop PhotoShop, BUT this was a surprise I did not expect to like that much, especially for free. Editing capabilities are basic, but really that’s often all you need. I love the collage building application! It’s really fun to create collages for social media, family, friends, Church newsletters, etc.

Clunky; Adobe Makes It All So Complicated
by torrie62 on 2020/08/07 19:56
Not sure why when Adobe is such a leader in photo graphic capabilities their apps are so limited in scope and options. So little functionality takes so much time and money and more Adobe apps. Just sad. Give us more for less and more people will buy.

Adobe photoshop editing app review
by anniemericle on 2020/06/18 15:51
I’ve only recently started using this app! It’s been on my phone for a while but i didn’t really have any interest in it. My phone used to be my mom’s and she had all the Adobe apps because she worked for the company! Anyways moving to the review part of this. I found it to be helpful to edit my photos that I took either of nature or myself or friends or find cool photos on the internet and kind of add on to their beauty. I then discovered the discovery page where people share their edits. I love it! I’ve always wanted people to see what I can do with photography as photography has a very special place in my heart. I love how people can like your photos. It’s like Instagram but it’s not like Instagram. What I mean by that is people share photos about their lives or what seems important to them and whether someone likes it or not you don’t have to worry about people thinking otherwise. The thing that separates this app from any other social media is there are no area for comments. I know comments are like the danger zones in social media! It’s scary to enter the comments not knowing what someone may think of what you post. This app makes me feel safe and comfortable about what i post. So over all I would recommend this app to anyone from 9 and up!
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.
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)
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.
So much fun!
by YachtieM on 2020/07/03 12:32
I’m having a lot of fun designing my own inspirational posts from my own photos. Adobe PsX makes this very easy with the editing of each layer. There could be some minor improvements, eg in the stroke for fonts (I haven’t figured out to cancel out of that once it’s in place without deleting the text and starting over completely) and the choice background color of the message in combination with the font color (which I would like to be able to make my own combinations for), or the spot correction that doesn’t allow for spot darkening/lightening, as far as I can tell. Overall this app provides a lot of excellent features. There are also other Adobe apps that connect into it with easy, but I haven’t had the need to use them in conjunction with this one. My concern is that at some point Adobe will turn around and charge me for use of the whole thing or have a monthly subscription for it making an older version obsolete, as is my experience with another Adobe product I used for years and don’t use enough to get a monthly for. This trepidation and minor adjustment mentioned above (maybe I need to check out the help section on this) made me drop a star. In the end Adobe is amazing and does deliver with its photo development apps.
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.
Please help🙏🏻
by agegirl on 2020/07/01 00:32
Hello, I know I probably won’t get a response but it’s worth a shot. I have downloaded more photo editing apps than you can imagine. I have tried so hard to figure this issue out and I can’t for the life of me. So I’m really desperate at this point. Can you please tell me how to resize an image without compromising the photo? PSexpress gives you the aspect ratio presets for different social media platforms to choose from. But, it doesn’t matter what I choose because it always cuts off my photo. I don’t want to do that. I want to be able to fit in the FULL size photo. If it means I could crop it into being a full sized photo, I would be willing to loose on the quality. And, I don’t want to put it on a white background so that the photo fits in that square because I would still be loosing on the photo. I want to be able to resize to whatever dimension I need to in order to fit the photo in different social media platforms. I know that a lot of these platforms automatically compress the photo for you but, I would like to resize it before I upload so I don’t compromise the photo, and it doesn’t get cut off. I have watch many videos yet, I can never get it. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could suggest what I can do to fix this frustrating problem. I would be so grateful!!
Easy to use
by Anne643152 on 2019/10/10 01:46
Great if you have an online store. My god this shaved about 40min per picture compared to what I was using before for stark white-flat-lays. Basically you only need basic understanding of... using apps... and you’ll be able to mess around with this and figure it out even if you’ve never used it before. Honestly. It’s user friendly IMO and way less “computer person” (lol) than the full photoshop computer program, yet you can edit pictures and make them look nearly as professional, or just as, depending on what you’re doing (like in my case to make the white backgrounds- this app lets me make pro-level ones). If you just want a picture to edit your selfies, this is probably a bit more advanced photoediting than say, FaceTune, and you probably need to know how to edit pix a bit more than you do on that app. But for anything professional, products, to make nature/scenic pix pop, to add text, etc- it’s fantastic. Also, it makes the best collages of any app I’ve ever used. Hands down. I really never review apps, but I love this one. And I love the sister apps that go with it. Fantastical. Seriously have no complaints that I can think of.
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)!!!
It’s ok
by L1zz1e P on 2020/07/28 06:30
Use it every day but that’s bc the other one isn’t showing up. the previous adobe all access version better for ipad. like fresco a lot tho - i think adobe needs to work on not only creating new products like fresco but empowering the community of creatives better. adobe bridge and lightroom now have many overlaps —- no one young uses bridge but it’s an imperative application!!! empower your community w knowledge. this isn’t about creating a super user friendly dumb down adobe bc you want regular people to use it... this should be focused on empowering designers of all breeds, whether graphic illustration photographer etc. LASTLY - YOU NEEED A LIVE WORK OR MOODBOARDING TOOL LIKE ENVISION FOR PHOTOSHOOTS and moodboards that can literally take the CD from an interactive call sheet where all members of the board can discuss the concepts before, during, and after the photoshoot, not to mention the features that automate create palettes.... adobe envision is the next frontier for you - it’s a creative lab that helps make big creative endeavors as painless as possible.
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.
No longer works for iPhone!
by dancingheart67 on 2020/03/04 14:31
Ok I updated my phone app and very little is open, it says I need a subscription. How is it that it all continues to work on my iPad? I remember paying a one time fee (on my iPhone) that opened the adobe suite in the past. So I can only edit on my iPad only and all the adobe products seem very integrated on my iPad, but not on my iphone nothing works and pictures won’t open between any adobe apps. and I am logged in. I’ve hit restore purchases and nothing happens. There is nowhere in the app to buy any subscriptions or purchases, and nothing works correctly. So I give it three stars because it works (for now) on the iPad and all my purchases are there and open and apps still work, but not at all on the iPhone. And you can’t find any instructions on what to do to get purchases back or where to go to purchase again. There is no way to email the devs in any app. No instructions for iPhone at all and what works on my iPad does not handoff to iPhone! It was great and now is actually worthless (as I do most of my picture taking and editing on my iPhone) unless I airdrop my photos to my iPad.
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.
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.
Used to be amazing.. but keeps getting worse.

I used to love this app and everything about it. I’m sure to most professional photographers it may not be much, but for me, it does all I need, plus some. I have used this app for quite some time. There were issues in the past that happened very rarely that I was able to just look past due to the updates and bug fixes. However, now it’s basically not even worth it anymore. Half of the filters don’t work! I’ll tap one (one of my favorites) only to see it puts it back to its original setting and doesn’t put a filter on the photo at all, even though it says I have applied it. Before it would just be a few filters and then like I said before, an app update with bug fixes would help. Not literally 50-60% of the filters don’t work. You tap them only to see they put your photo back to the original setting. And no, this isn’t due to a premium setting type filter either. It’s both premium and basic filters. This app is practically useless now, which is a real shame because it was me favorite for the longest time.
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!
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.
Amazingly easy photo editing app
by Taxykab on 2020/07/18 03:17
This one of the easiest photo editing apps out there. I’ve tried a few and so far I click with this one, i like how the tools are organized and the tool capabilities match the users skill level: beginner, intermediate and advanced. I’ve even used this on the fly at work when I needed to meet a deadline. Photo was too dark so emailed photo to personal email, edited on phone, emailed back to work email. I would give this app 4 and 3/4 stars if I could because there are a few issues that annoy me. 1) I like the photo collage feature - but developers - LET ME PRINT A COLLAGE TO AN 8x10 photo paper size!!! Some of us old schoolers want to PRINT the collage, not see it online. 2) Developers - increase the # of photos I can add to a collage. 3) Developers - please please please - organize photos like Apple so it is searchable by All/Day/Month/Year. It is a pain to scroll through a year of photos, on my phone, to find/edit the one I want.
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!
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!
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.
Crash Central!
by Ikkibod on 2020/07/30 18:03
I manly use Cliqz because of all the crashes, mid edit. The cloning is awful, but I do love the fonts and that’s the only reason I keep it. Not memer friendly😡 July 2020 update: Now with the newest updates it crashes even more frequently and WORSE, the colors of the font changes dramatically when set. IE; ALL reds turn pink, ALL blues turn purple, and so on and so on. PS has gotten worse than ever😡😡😡. Well, the font colors are stable again but the frequent crashes are still maddening. I have to constantly save each little edit so that I don’t constantly have to go back and start over. I’m a ‘memeologist’ (my own term) and I’m on photoshop many hours a day. The $35 ‘pro upgrade’ is outta the question until the current problems I’m having are straightened out. I still have to use Cliqz in conjunction with PS to do my work. Sorry 😐 Well today, July 30, 2020, I lost the ability to clone, warp, cut out. Every time I click on the pencil edit key it takes me to ‘edit in Spark Post’ Adobe Park is a $10 mo. add on I don’t want or need. What makes me insane is I’m in mid-edit with numerous memes I’m making and an stuck now. Crashes everyday and now this?😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
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.
Text Feature
by AECOON on 2020/04/08 16:18
As per their request, I am reviewing the text feature. It’s the least I could do in return for this amazing app & those who develop it. The text feature is GREAT for making social media posts, memes, or just a funny photo to send to your best friend (yes!) The best part about the text feature is that it has templates; so that really helps make your finished product look polished and less amateur. But you don’t have to use a template; you can freestyle it. You can change the font, color, shadow, etc. It’s great for business use and personal use. If I had to ask for anything, it would be: 1)more font options 2)the ability to change the text opacity (I wish I had the app pulled up next to me, in some instances you CAN change the opacity but not always and I can’t remember which function provides this) Also, the text option itself isn’t available for desktop (most of the features aren’t available for the desktop app) Overall, the text feature is simple and straight forward. The template feature is awesome. Hollistically, this app is perfect and then some; and it’s free! Original Review: 5 stars Perfect. And then better. And then perfect. And then more features! It’s so great in functionality, it’s intuitive, the results...your photographs are AWESOME. AND ITS FUN TO USE! This app actually does feel like a true gift; I don’t ever find myself taking it for granted. (Did I mention that it was free?) THANK YOU ADOBE THANK YOU PHOTOSHOP LOVE ASH
Great for all enthusiasts
by photosynthesislove on 2020/08/09 00:16
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 =)
Great Achievements
by East Beth on 2020/06/22 01:24
I have nothing bad to say about this photo app because it’s a Great App . I belong to some photo restoration groups on Facebook , and have been given rave reviews on a lot of photos I’ve worked on . I’m always asked what program I use I recommend this app , and they too have great results with repairing and restoring photos for free . We don’t charge anything for the service that we give to our group members , some photos are beyond help but I give them a try to show the person I put time and effort in trying to achieve the results they expect from our group members . The app is easy to use and gives great results - it gives many options and filters to work with . I gave it a Five Star rating , because I really like it and you will not be disappointed in downloading and using it . And look into the new updated Versions of PhotoShop .
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 😅
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.
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.
So close to being super useful...just misses the mark.
by badchicken987 on 2019/07/05 16:42
I downloaded this app with the expectation that it would be as useful both for my art business as a way to make quick composites of my stock and, personally to make cute collages of my son. The inability to manually manipulate the shape, placement, and size of each photo makes it extremely frustrating to use. Say nothing of the fact that you can’t adjust the image to fit in the window. Honestly, it’s faster and less frustrating for me to just get out the laptop when I want to make a collage. There are several (albeit less reputable) websites where it’s also easier. That said, the photo editor is fun and I appreciate the variety of formatting for the collage background, so that you can be sure your work will show correctly on Insta or Facebook. Just not what I expected from Photoshop🤷🏻‍♀️
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!!!
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!
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
Upset With New Restrictions
by LochNat on 2020/01/20 21:11
I’ll start off by saying this has by far been the best photo editing app I’ve ever used. For years it’s been my go-to, reliable platform for editing my pictures, and it never fails to deliver. However, today I opened the app and noticed many features are marked with a star symbol. Further investigation told me that marked features are available free for a limited time, and that soon they will have to be purchased. I understand certain features being restricted but the marked features included most of the filters, many of the light/color adjustments (like noise reduction and HSL), the before-and-after viewing tool, and more. I always remember these being available and very useful tools and I’m pretty upset to know they’ll be leaving soon and I’m concerned that the app won’t be able to deliver as much without making a purchase.
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.
Useful, but kind of a rip off
by Luiten01 on 2020/04/22 23:12
I’ve been using PS express for a while, and I find it really handy. It’s nice to be able to do some basic editing on my phone when I don’t want to go through the whole process of uploading my photos to my computer to photoshop them. Generally it’s not bad, but I recently uninstalled and reinstalled it, I was supposed to be getting a phone upgrade but have postponed, and when I reinstalled it some features that I’ve been using for literal months were suddenly part of the ‘pro’ version, which costs a monthly fee instead of being a one time purchase. Not only am I totally unwilling to pay a monthly fee for an app that is nice, but not exactly all that and a bag of chips, but it feels like a gross misuse of their power for them to make features that they’ve had for a long time seem like they’re part of the new update that costs money.
