by @oldguy on 2021/11/29 04:30
This is a tough one, but here goes! As one with insufficient tech knowledge and experience, this has been a train wreck for me! With PS and Lightroom, it all became disfunctional! It appears I have the two registered under two separate accounts. I can’t seem to find a way to fix. So, while the apps are quite good, the seamless transition from one to the other, is not there! Beyond that, I’d go 4.5!

PLEASE BRING BACK FIX & MIX
by jilliannp56 on 2021/11/28 22:10
I would rather pay for FIX & MIX every year than receive this app free for life! I cannot understand for the life of me how &/or why anyone would even consider this app to be an update/upgrade in comparison to Fix & Mix. There’s nothing “express” about it! Heck, I’m sure there are two people out there somewhere that actually enjoy this app.. so why not keep this “upgrade” around for those 2 unfortunate souls and bring back Fix & Mix for the rest of the population? PLEASE!
Removed tons of useful features
by Draconicmama on 2021/11/28 20:09
Since they merged Express and Mix pretty much every reason I had to use express is gone (or at least so well hidden I can’t find them.) I know it won’t sound serious but you can’t make memes with the new app so it’s worthless to me.

Glitchy & Freezing
by Mikprim on 2021/11/28 15:48
Have to say losing an edit 30 minutes in to the spinning wheel of death. (Several times, not just once) Email an employee and they email me once and then never again. Extremely disappointing from a developer such as this. Load times and lag are long and frustrating. Nothing has changed. Same things keep happening through every update. Lag times are increasing even on a brand new iPhone ProMax 13. I don’t even know why I still use this app at this point. The amount of work I lose when I’m on my phone is heart breaking. Photoshop. Stop asking for my opinion in your trash can of an app. Do better.
A great App

Where’s Photoshop Fix??
by Cheeri My O's on 2021/11/28 08:31
The Photoshop Fix retouch app was supposed to be “merged” with Photoshop Express but the tools are not at all the same and makes it way harder to retouch photos. That app was the best and I can’t find anything like it! Please bring back all the capabilities and tools from Photoshop Fix like the way you could precisely brush on skin softening, lightening, hue, spot healing, etc.
It's OK. Not for finished works.
by mgiddarie on 2021/11/28 06:59
They kept nagging for this so here goes... The app works very well for retouching and minor tweaks as well as color edits. Everything else is okay but not production quality. Overall it's a solid product and at $4.99/mo., worth every penny. Not for professionals though in its current state in my opinion. There are a few modes, Edit, Mix, Collage, Retouch, and Capture. EDIT- Everything except masking works well. The Overlays feature is cute but also missing blending options and the overlays are kind of FUGLY. Feels like they slapped that part together. Masking via selection tools is an absolute garbage mess and is not worth using at all. There are no options to feather the edges and when you draw a line it often will appear much differently than expected and somehow other parts of the image that weren't even touched will become effected. MIX - Admittedly haven't spent a lot of time using Mix but it's pretty cool from what I have done. Gives you ability to utilize layers that consist of other images. Neat. COLLAGE - No idea. RETOUCH - This must be where the bulk of the days spent developing this product have gone. Super powerful, super reliable and totally crazy good. You will find the liquify tool here as well as some human face specific tools to modify individual elements of the face; nose, eyes, lips, forehead, etc. incredibly well done. CAPTURE - Honestly Adobe could have skipped this part and left it to Photoshop Camera (another app that actually exists that they push in the Capture section) and called it a day. Has some neat abilities like double exposure, which is *overtly* missing from the Edit applet, live Face overlays and more but I haven't used it really.

Extortion
by User of iPhone apps. on 2021/11/27 16:06
Spent an hour getting an adjustment just right, then it wanted me to pay money or said it would discard my work. It should have said that edit was a pay feature up front, not when I was done.

Fabulous image editor — well done!
by arcadiaStar on 2021/11/27 13:51
Options are endless, app is easy to use, developer support is top notch — a problem reported previously was corrected in this new version, 21.45.0 — thank you! (Previous review, version 21.44.0: “Most recent version will not save edited photos. If more than one edit feature is used, when trying to save the edited image a spinning wheel appears in the middle of the image and does not advance from there. The only way out is to close the app, and the edited pic is not saved. iPad 6, iPadOS v. 15.1, no other problems on my device with other apps. I tried deleting the app and reinstalling but that made no difference.”)

by jjjnsjhwdhushdks)hsjnjh#b on 2021/11/27 01:08
Photoshop is an amazing app, but there are some things I would suggest, for me it is a little bit hard to find and understand how everything works. Also isn't there supposed to be a background changer, and eraser for the background? I am very happy with the results but again a background changer(if it is not already on here) would really be suitable. This is very helpful to a photographer, and is great for an Amateur. Please take this into consideration, and thanks for reading.
Love it!

New version crashes
by BRG_Paul on 2021/11/26 22:13
I’ve been using this app for quite a long time. It’s been terrific but this latest build crashes immediately on my iPhone XS. How do I revert to previous version?
My go-to now. So good.
by Gitanacowgirl on 2021/11/26 21:37
With recent upgrades including layers, better selection tools and more…there is less & less reason to use other apps on the phone or to export to my iPad for more robust editing. This is the BEST balance I have found so far for fast/convenient vs comprehensive. It’s making me create WAY more small masterpieces on the fly from random shots taken on my phone. The result is prolific collection of impressive phone-only shots/edits that are worthy of framing and signing.
Perfect

by Jamesgaston on 2021/11/26 19:30
The s/w works well. I use this editor while traveling, then Lightroom back in my office. I like that you can easily set the photo size before you save / share the photo. I find the home page of the app is ugly, though.
Amazing app to transform your pictures into creative canvas.
by KushJinju on 2021/11/26 19:07
This app gives you hundreds of data points to work with on images. You can apply colour or shades in granular levels. My favourite feature is Heal. You can pretty much cut out any thing or hide any thing using this feature. Overall it is a professional grade app with pricing set very reasonably. I wish they sell a lifetime license instead of taking money on monthly or yearly basis. Other than that it is total worth it for the features this app provides for editing images.

by maisysmumma on 2021/11/26 04:58
I’m new to the app, and I love the convenience of it. But there are a few things that I wish I could change. Number one I’m not sure how to change where it saves the photos I’ve been working on to… actually I’m not sure where they go when they’ve been saved. To it would be nice if you could change the size of your borders. As in for competitions. You have no real thin ones. (Also being to change the DPI would be helpful for those of us submitting to club competitions ). I’m sure as I use the app more I’ll get better right now I’m feeling very very clumsy! I’m sure it can do way more than what I even begin to understand now. Cheers

I am sorry for giving this a 1 star, but I will never be able to get into the app because I don’t have a Facebook, apple, or google account. So I tried making an account with my email address, password, and all of that stuff, but every time I tried my efforts were denied. Until I can figure that out I will not be using this app. 😥

Handy app
by Xero Aperture on 2021/11/25 19:40
Love this app it comes in handy for on the fly editing. Mobile photos are now becoming good enough to hold their own against digital cameras. I am able to make quick edits and has jus enough tools to add some precise editing such isolating a subject to add a bokeh effect. Obviously not as precise as a mouse but it gets the job done. Can’t wait to see what they add to this app.
So great

No replacement for desktop, msgs are annoying, privacy concerns
by BSB-Tuba on 2021/11/25 19:20
Let’s be clear, this is an ok app, but just ok. It’s absolutely no replacement for real Photoshop on a desktop or laptop. On top of that, Adobe forces you to share usage data & constantly whines if you have notifications turned off. The privacy concerns over usage sharing are not acceptable for a company the size of Adobe. Apple needs to clamp down on this just like they stopped Zuck & Co from getting personalized ad tracking information.
Awesome

This app is making me angry. I want to give it -5 stars.
by EricaReilly on 2021/11/25 17:20
I don’t know why the iPhone version is missing the camera profile for the iPhone12Pro camera, but here we are. Users have reported this issue for some time. The answers are ‘it was a design decision’ or our developers are working on it. Days, months, years later, it’s still an issue. If I can’t edit Apple RAW on an Apple device, what good is the app?

Are Good Developers Really This Hard To Find
by Bad app management on 2021/11/25 00:56
This amalgamation of several precious Adobe apps really takes the cake for poor ideas come to life. I hope the Project Manager finds a position they’re better suited for. I switched to my first iPhone roughly a year ago specifically for the increased functionality of Adobe apps on iOS versus android. Adobe has chosen gut these apps, and create this… they really didn’t put a lot of thought into it, frankly, if they’re not embarrassed as a whole they should be. This app speaks volumes- and what it’s telling me is that there’s no sense retaining a subscription with Adobe until my iPad is replaced. It might be worthwhile with an Apple Pencil, but they knew going into this that most Apple phones aren’t compatible with the pencil. They knew this, and they still chose to destroy pencil-free functionality. But hey, if you love PicsArt, this app has 1/3rd less pop ups. Yeah, you’re absolutely not going to make it through a session in this app without seeing a few pop up ads. They might consider taking into account our subscription status when feeding us ads for products we are already paying for. Poorly managed, poorly built, backdated UI; overall, an insult to a mainstay.

This app seemed fine at first, until you find out you can do virtually nothing. You have no freedom and have to pay for everything. It also crashed frequently if you try to add something. I don't recommend this app unless you're willing to pay for everything.
Painfully underpowered
by WigglesTheHoly on 2021/11/23 20:06
This app is a joke. We should be able to unleash the power of the Apple Pencil or even make simple background removals. Layers would be fantastic. This should be called something other than photoshop as it does not live up to the name.

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!
So much fun!
by YachtieM on 2020/08/22 16:23
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 and the spot correction that takes a blob from not always the best next spot over & creating a layering of branches instead of a darker spot in the background kind of thing. Overall this app provides a lot of excellent features. There are also other Adobe apps that connect into it with ease, 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.
Product Review With Request
by Westway72Tn on 2021/05/29 10:22
I've used Adobes photo apps for a long time and honestly think that their app layouts are Numero Uno. Lightroom, PS Express, and Photo Fix are used everyday and I couldn't do what I do without Adobe. Well I probably could, but it wouldn't be as easy as it is now. Now If I was able to design the final piece to my -Adobe Photo Maintenance Collection-, it would be an app that would allow the user to analyze any photograph to determine if that photo is actually the original image, or if it's been munipulated. An example of munipulation would be receiving an image that has possibly been overlayed with another image, maybe it's had parts removed by cutout, or something was erased. An app like that would be to cool. If possible the app would attempt to reconstruct the image to it's original glory. The user could just tap a fix photo button and the program would attempt to remove as much of the overlay / cover-up as possible, then it would attempt to rebuild the photo to it's original look. While your at it could you all throw in a simple -Focus My Blurred Photo button-. Just take a blurred photo that's recognizable and bring it into focus. I mean it's all 1's and 0's right? I'm sure you guys and girls at Adobe have got this wrapped up already. Cheers!
Love being able to use Photoshop on my iPhone!

I have been using Photoshop since I was assigned to PSYOP in the Army in 1992. I had received a minor in Studio Art with an emphasis in B&W Photography during the good old film days and Photoshop blew my mind! I was an Interrogator/Linguist/Interpreter and when I saw the Illustrators being able to manipulate the digital images I made sure to shadow them when I had finished my translations. Good thing I did because I was called upon to use the skills I had learned when we had no Illustrator available. After I finished my Army Career, I obtained a job which required me to use Photoshop in my daily duties. I loved how Adobe has continued to evolve and improve Photoshop over the the almost 2 decades that I have enjoyed using it. I now use Photoshop on a personal capacity. It amazes me that Photoshop is available on my phone and iPad. I am currently retired and Service Connected Disabled Veteran who also has Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis, I have enjoyed learning compositing skills. I have done a series of self portraits showing my journey with Multiple Sclerosis. I have done other series, also. I share them with friends and the local Art guild. I believe that I will have a subscription to Photoshop - and the entire Suite, forever!
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.
Honestly

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.
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!!
StopPromoting me to review this
by neverusingticketmasteragain on 2021/03/24 22:22
Iv reviewed this app like 20 time and continue to get printed to(like there isn’t even a x to close the window it just keeps bringing me here. And it’s always when stuff gets worse. Stop asking me to review it lol I pay for the premium or whatever and I’m bombarded with stupid “adds” while I can only edit photos 10/20 at a time before everything I click and every file prompts “cannot be opened”. Reset the app and I can edit maybe 6 more before the errors come again. Random crashing as if I actually go on a streak of editing without errors, but that’s less frustrating than having to reset the app every 10 minutes so I can actually get some editing done... Also the update that made it so I can’t access/edit photos from my own phone, on because the app needs to now be connected to the internet so you have the option to post on their “social media” built in dashboard.... I don’t want that.... I want to edit my photos..... I don’t need to see other peoples work(even if it is cool) I need to edit the photos on my phone so I can download/upload/take more photos to continue the cycle.... Ask me to review. I do it because the close button is blocked, do a stupid review, go back edit one photo and BOOM REVIEW OUR SHITASS APP. Well it would be better if I didn’t have to review the app every photo I crop and and center.... plus whatever else I wrote before...
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.
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)!!!
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)
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.
Textual Evidence Taken Out of Context
by Tessla555 on 2021/08/23 15:05
Hmm, it asked me to write suggestions on how to improve the text options in PS Express, however, I am scratching my head because the title to this screen now requests a review. I’ll do both, I surmise. Onward! This document is a basic bar graph. I figure it is worth noting that while I opened fresco, I closed it once I realized it doesn’t have the bar graph function. Because I often find myself wondering what qualifications strangers have to write podcasts or even these, my disclaimer is that I am inexperienced in all photo editing & quite unqualified for an educated review on these topics: social media posts, memes & scrapbooking. I did find it punctual that this review asking me to comment on the type features in PSExpress was requested at precisely the moment I was attempting to airdrop my image to my iMac out of frustration… the basic options afforded for typing on my photo didn’t work at all. I offer little, but the reason is more from my hands’ neuropathy than fodder for discussion: Please set a a text box that I can format of my own choosing and not so preset. Thanks!
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!
Powerful app when it works
by Airika8oh on 2021/08/23 21:17
I love using this app to quickly edit my cell phone photos. The variety and ease of the tools are great and allow me to make precise edits to get my photos to look exactly the way I want. I have many presets that I’ve created and saved to the “My Looks” menu that make it easy to replicate my favorite edits across many photos over time- a huge benefit to speed and consistency. However, the app is buggy. It freezes or crashes often. It can be very slow and get “stuck” when switching between menus in the app. And sometimes, it just won’t open certain images. These issues have not been a deal breaker for me- usually shutting down the app and restarting is all that is needed. But it is frustrating and slows down the process when I’m trying to edit several photos. One other wish for this app: once I save a series of edits to “My Looks”- I can no longer see the edit “recipe” for that edit. I wish there was a way to look at the “Looks” you’ve created and see the edits that you used to create that look. Overall, great app- very powerful and gets used almost daily. Like most things in life, does have room for improvements.
Good app with lots of potential! I see some areas for improvement.
by cindypain on 2021/11/17 21:25
I love Adobe and all of their products. The app is great, although I’d like to see more features and creative options. Also, I think the user interface could use a little bit of work. Right now the UI seems cluttered and a bit too ‘square’. A modern UI update that is more user friendly would be very beneficial. Besides those minor comments it’s a wonderful app! Even though I’d like more features, the functionality is there. Adobe did a good job combining their previous apps into a single, more integrate app. Now that they’re done with that it’s time to clean it up a bit, update the UI, add some industry-leading features in, and watch it take flight!! 🛫 P.S. Adobe if you’re reading this, you’re doing great sweetie! 🙏 I’ll be a customer for life (when I can afford it #ThankYouStudentDiscount 😅) and I’ll be cheering you on from the sidelines! If y’all ever need more constructive feedback let me know. And hey, if y’all ever need a bright young mind full of ideas, I’d love to work with/learn from you guys in any way I could be helpful. Adios for now, compadres 🤠
I love PS
by Emma Matrixa on 2021/10/22 01:16
I use this app a lot express myself by typing over pictures. What I find missing is shadows for the letters, better control over the alignment too. These are attributes that could be improved. Also, I haven’t found any way to coordinate the text and the picture after I type the text. Otherwise, this app serves me pretty well. I’ve tried other apps, but for me Adobe serve me the best. Although I find it a bit expensive, I decided it’s worth the cost. It gives me a huge variety of ways to express myself in a creative way. They’ve been in the business about ever since the dawn of the PC. They know what they are doing, the product is reliable and it works. But with every new product the learning curve is getting out of hand. I like to learn on the fly in my own projects, and an integrated Ai voice guide would be a great improvement, because I don’t like looking at some instructor on another screen with all their blah blah telling me how to do their project. They make me feel like a child, it’s annoying and a lot of what I learn gets lost on the way trying to capture the essence ce of what I want to learn.
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.
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.
People should read descriptions
by DayWalkerDANI on 2020/12/19 17:41
This isn’t photoshop, it’s PS express and is strictly a very basic photo editor, primarily for editing photos for like social media and stuff. It’s pretty obvious based on recent reviews that people aren’t reading descriptions and then writing negative reviews because they failed to read and just hit download, and because they want products for free. This app is great for very basic photo adjustments and expression. It’s intuitive and easy to navigate, and provides all the basic photo editing one needs. It’s not Photoshop and isn’t for removing parts of images, if you want that, you’ll have to use PS on a desktop. Not sure why people expect everything to be free, it’s 2020 and people need to pay their bills and eat, to expect developers to just give you their hard work for free is plain silly and selfish. If you don’t want to pay for it, find another app full of ads instead of complaining on reviews that you have to pay for a product you’re using.
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.
Photoshop Express VS Aviary
by computronico on 2021/10/20 18:03
I downloaded this app but never used it because I was so used to using Aviary even long after it was no longer supported or available in the App Store. I got so used to it and it was easy to use and free. Finally when I did an IOS upgrade it rendered Aviary useless. So I had to start using Photoshop Express. It is a lot harder to maneuver around than Aviary but it does have a more extensive and complex feature set. You will get hit with a lot of ads trying to get you to buy the subscription version. Be careful so of the ads are like land mines. You may think you are going to use an adjustment feature and it is a buy button. Be real careful using it, but it does give you really great results. This app does give you a lot of controls, but if you are in a hurry to to do a quick edit and send of a photo I would say try and find another app. I know how to use the desktop Photoshop very well and this app tries to give you those features but if you are on the go and want to do something quick and 123 while walking down the street, this is not the app for you.
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.
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.
Photoshop again had proven itself to Adobe as something
by DJ Derk Jickface on 2021/04/05 00:54
I’ve been using Adobe‘s photo shop for almost a decade and I got to say, that’s 10 years. Not only do I use adobe Photoshop for my photos. But Ben 10 years . I enjoy it when using the program. I’ve noticed that. But when I’m using a different program than adobe Photoshop, let’s say Google earth… it is such a different experience that I can’t even compare it to Adobe for a shop, and that’s kind of a shame if you don’t think about it really. I got to take a nap. I can’t give it five stars because it’s actually adobe Photoshop and not my cousin anymore .Only the app of which the app is used for what the app was billed for is when I choose to review the app because I use it and that’s true too if you think about it when I was 10 years ago. It seems that adobe Photoshop only feels like a photo editing software as good as Adobe‘s photo shop, only when you’re using Adobe Photoshop. But who’s really to say that any of that is something that happens? Ty Me that’s too.
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.
Not all exceptional things have to be complicated
by Blue Phoenix radio on 2020/08/26 04:09
I’ve been an Adobe product user for about 25 years, and I’ve seen the rise of different suites of programs but no program has defined Adobe more than Photoshop. This mobile version is a useful tool, it’s not complex it’s missing a lot of features you would think would be a part of Photoshop… But it is for the phone, and it is for the wider world of users. That being said it is an invaluable tool, and those who have Adobe software for other operating system should remember that you have extra feature of expanded features, easy login… And flawless saving across all your Adobe accounts through your login. The only question is why aren’t you already using it? My family stays enthusiastically engaged with Adobe products including my husband and my teenage children who are artists and filmmakers. Photoshop will give you a tool, where are you take it from there is entirely up to you.
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!
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!
The tool for creators on the go!
by KoriThePen on 2021/03/23 19:13
This application is a must-have for any creator working on multiple photos in advance or on the go. It allows you to express precisely what you want quickly and efficiently, which is exactly what the world of social media now demands regularly. Some of the things you can do are limited, but that's the major sacrifice you make when it comes to a more mobile-friendly version of photoshop. You shouldn't expect this to replace all other editing software entirely. Still, it will make your work life more efficient if you sacrifice a bit of perfection for a more manageable workload. Unless your audience is taking a microscope to your photos, I promise they won't be seeing a significant difference. I'd say for those major photoshop projects, definitely use the full photoshop or other complete editing software. Still, for the social media photos that need a bit of work or multi-client small companies who also might be on the move a lot, this is going to be your best friend.
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!
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!!
My staple
by Hhxfjmcdh on 2021/05/02 02:48
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.
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.
Worth the Learning Curve
by jly2258 on 2021/09/21 00:58
While PS Express is quite intuitive and user-friendly, there is a curve to get through to become proficient with it. It is my go-to tool for quickly adjusting and enhancing, both my iPhone pix, as well as my blue-tooth generated Sony Ar3 shots. Like the desktop version of Photoshop, Express is deeper than meets the eye. It probably has more features than most people will find the need for using all of, but thats one of the cool things about it! There’s plenty of tools, basic and then a bit flashy, for everyone! I can’t say I ‘m doing too much with selections/masks here, as I mostly am working from my iPhone (I also have it installed on my iPad), and using my forefinger as the stylus! Not much for finnesse, but I get some great results working generally on entire photos this way. The more critical work I save for my desktop. I give Express 5 stars, but give yourself plenty of time to get comfortable with it. It’s worth the effort!
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 =)
I would’ve PAID to keep Photoshop Mix & Fix
by Eggplant Papi on 2021/07/17 06:28
Y’all had a great thing with Mix & Fix. Now y’all take several steps backwards to incorporate counterintuitive ideas like meme and quote templates? In Mix you could go in depth with something as small as how far I wanted the font to be spaced; now I’m reduced to having to sort through bland templates that restrict more than innovate. For the option of a a monthly subscription or $35 for the year, I should be able to add a simple solid lined border or add more than only 5 layers. On top of that, how on earth are you supposed to go from editing a photo to mixing layers without exiting back to the main page and the app asking if you want to safe your progress or discard. This app is absolute trash and I was one of the suckers that fed into the click bait that all the things I could do in Mix “and more” would be in Express. I can never get back the hour that I spent in this useless, pandering-to-social-media-culture app. Like the title said I would literally pay to get Mix back and keep the support going rather than attempt to sit through this horrible UI and useless features like the stickers and text templates. This app is trash.
TERRIBLE BUGS
by KaitlynKaitlyn on 2020/09/14 13:17
I subscribed to Photoshop Express mobile and it’s garbage. It will not confirm my purchase even though I have paid for a month. It will say “Purchase Confirmed. Waiting for feature activation.” with a white background and loading wheel and will stay that way nonstop. I will click purchase again and it will say “Purchasing...” and nothing happens. I will click “Restore purchase” and it will have a “Restoring purchases” message with no change, same loading wheel. I have deleted the app and reinstalled it multiple times and nothing changes, same errors, always. It will ask if I want a 3 day trial even though I am subscribed, and even if I try to confirm that, I get the first “Purchase confirmed. Waiting for feature activation...” message AGAIN. There is nothing that will hey this app to work for me to export edits and use all tools EVEN THOUGH I HAVE PAID. Trying to get help for their “support” is ridiculous. I’ve just been out through the loop multiple times in that regard even. I don’t understand the high ratings because I can’t be the only one with this error. My phone is an XS Max and fully up to date on software. It’s literal GARBAGE for an app.
Bad update
by R. E. L. on 2021/07/03 21:18
I can't figure out how to save to camera roll since the last update. It keeps prompting me to sign up for free 3 day trial, after which I'll be charged a monthly fee. I'm not trying to do anything but put a border around a photo, not something I'm going to pay for when there are apps that let me do that for free. I need to be able to edit and save without being pestered to sign up for a free trial of something I'll never subscribe to, and I certainly don't want to have to screenshot every time because I can't figure out the update. Please fix, or if it's subscription only, please indicate that so people like myself can delete it and stop taking up space on our phones. I don't want to be screenshotting stuff I'm supposed to be paying for, but it's always been a free app and I see nothing to indicate that's no longer the case. It seems I just can't figure it out. Please fix if this is a bug. If this is no longer a free app with in app purchases, maybe it would be appropriate to put a notice in the app saying so, or at least make it impossible to begin editing without subscribing.
Photoshop Express
by SaraLaceY on 2021/10/12 21:46
I really like this app, and find it useful for many functions I need to edit photos quickly and easily. I especially do like the Blemish Removal feature and the easy and effective ways I can use it. The quality of the images in PE is very reliable and quite fine. There are enough features to do lots of things with my photos, but not so many that I feel overwhelmed. It’s not without ANY flaws, but none are bothersome enough to think of writing this. The fact is that I use this app for the editing of easily 75% of my work. It is reliable, and when I need it to quickly spiff up a set of photos to post for sale, well, this app does just that, no surprises. PE, Photoshop Express, is a flexible, intuitive little work horse. It is a fun editor that is easy to mess around with, while not leaving you worried that you won’t be able do again that edit you just did!
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.
Good app but..
by ScottishRiteMason33 on 2021/08/29 23:45
Good app but they took away photoshop mix app and now since it’s added to this app and not it’s own separate app they want you to have a premium service to access it and add on layered photos which I feel It’s unfair. I feel like if you Added it to photoshop express then let it do what it did when it was its own separate app and let us access it freely or let us have the option to buy it outright to own without getting a premium service and having to pay monthly for this app. Especially for students who need it truly like me we have photoshop classes well classes that use photoshop and sometimes we don’t finish our work and have to wait till the next day to finish it but since now everything is going digital and some apps are being put on the phones this app will help us finish up any work and especially if needed to use mix and layer and combine photos. I feel it should be given again freely or something without having to pay month to month for the mix cut combine.
Grateful
by indigoperspective on 2021/03/31 10:43
I’ve been using Photoshop since 2004 and to say my experience just keeps getting better is an understatement. Picasso said, “everything you can imagine is real.” Photoshop makes this a reality. The are no limits on what you can make in photoshop. The photoshop express app is amazing in that it is jam packed with the best of Photoshop. It even allows you to create double and multiple exposure photos on your phone! The filters are one of my most favorite gifts offered by Photoshop Express because there is such a nice variety of them and bc some are rich in color and tone and others are lighter in color and focus more on the design of the image. If you want a one stop and go no further photo editing app, this one is it. Heck, just read through the other reviews and ask yourself if any other photo editing app has as many statistically good ones as this one does. ✌️
Great Achievements
by East Beth on 2021/11/06 18:33
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 .
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 😅

This is a tough one, but here goes! As one with insufficient tech knowledge and experience, this has been a train wreck for me! With PS and Lightroom, it all became disfunctional! It appears I have the two registered under two separate accounts. I can’t seem to find a way to fix. So, while the apps are quite good, the seamless transition from one to the other, is not there! Beyond that, I’d go 4.5!

PLEASE BRING BACK FIX & MIX
by jilliannp56 on 2021/11/28 22:10
I would rather pay for FIX & MIX every year than receive this app free for life! I cannot understand for the life of me how &/or why anyone would even consider this app to be an update/upgrade in comparison to Fix & Mix. There’s nothing “express” about it! Heck, I’m sure there are two people out there somewhere that actually enjoy this app.. so why not keep this “upgrade” around for those 2 unfortunate souls and bring back Fix & Mix for the rest of the population? PLEASE!
Removed tons of useful features
by Draconicmama on 2021/11/28 20:09
Since they merged Express and Mix pretty much every reason I had to use express is gone (or at least so well hidden I can’t find them.) I know it won’t sound serious but you can’t make memes with the new app so it’s worthless to me.

by Mikprim on 2021/11/28 15:48
Have to say losing an edit 30 minutes in to the spinning wheel of death. (Several times, not just once) Email an employee and they email me once and then never again. Extremely disappointing from a developer such as this. Load times and lag are long and frustrating. Nothing has changed. Same things keep happening through every update. Lag times are increasing even on a brand new iPhone ProMax 13. I don’t even know why I still use this app at this point. The amount of work I lose when I’m on my phone is heart breaking. Photoshop. Stop asking for my opinion in your trash can of an app. Do better.

The Photoshop Fix retouch app was supposed to be “merged” with Photoshop Express but the tools are not at all the same and makes it way harder to retouch photos. That app was the best and I can’t find anything like it! Please bring back all the capabilities and tools from Photoshop Fix like the way you could precisely brush on skin softening, lightening, hue, spot healing, etc.
It's OK. Not for finished works.
by mgiddarie on 2021/11/28 06:59
They kept nagging for this so here goes... The app works very well for retouching and minor tweaks as well as color edits. Everything else is okay but not production quality. Overall it's a solid product and at $4.99/mo., worth every penny. Not for professionals though in its current state in my opinion. There are a few modes, Edit, Mix, Collage, Retouch, and Capture. EDIT- Everything except masking works well. The Overlays feature is cute but also missing blending options and the overlays are kind of FUGLY. Feels like they slapped that part together. Masking via selection tools is an absolute garbage mess and is not worth using at all. There are no options to feather the edges and when you draw a line it often will appear much differently than expected and somehow other parts of the image that weren't even touched will become effected. MIX - Admittedly haven't spent a lot of time using Mix but it's pretty cool from what I have done. Gives you ability to utilize layers that consist of other images. Neat. COLLAGE - No idea. RETOUCH - This must be where the bulk of the days spent developing this product have gone. Super powerful, super reliable and totally crazy good. You will find the liquify tool here as well as some human face specific tools to modify individual elements of the face; nose, eyes, lips, forehead, etc. incredibly well done. CAPTURE - Honestly Adobe could have skipped this part and left it to Photoshop Camera (another app that actually exists that they push in the Capture section) and called it a day. Has some neat abilities like double exposure, which is *overtly* missing from the Edit applet, live Face overlays and more but I haven't used it really.
Love this app

I’d have given 5 stars but they suddenly went from free to fee & I preferred the controls of the old version better so I took off one star for each. It is a great app for quick fixes & lots more.

Extortion
by User of iPhone apps. on 2021/11/27 16:06
Spent an hour getting an adjustment just right, then it wanted me to pay money or said it would discard my work. It should have said that edit was a pay feature up front, not when I was done.

Fabulous image editor — well done!
by arcadiaStar on 2021/11/27 13:51
Options are endless, app is easy to use, developer support is top notch — a problem reported previously was corrected in this new version, 21.45.0 — thank you! (Previous review, version 21.44.0: “Most recent version will not save edited photos. If more than one edit feature is used, when trying to save the edited image a spinning wheel appears in the middle of the image and does not advance from there. The only way out is to close the app, and the edited pic is not saved. iPad 6, iPadOS v. 15.1, no other problems on my device with other apps. I tried deleting the app and reinstalling but that made no difference.”)

by jjjnsjhwdhushdks)hsjnjh#b on 2021/11/27 01:08
Photoshop is an amazing app, but there are some things I would suggest, for me it is a little bit hard to find and understand how everything works. Also isn't there supposed to be a background changer, and eraser for the background? I am very happy with the results but again a background changer(if it is not already on here) would really be suitable. This is very helpful to a photographer, and is great for an Amateur. Please take this into consideration, and thanks for reading.
Love it!

Some of my favorite photo apps no longer work and this one has basically everything the others had. Super easy to use!
New version crashes
by BRG_Paul on 2021/11/26 22:13
I’ve been using this app for quite a long time. It’s been terrific but this latest build crashes immediately on my iPhone XS. How do I revert to previous version?
My go-to now. So good.
by Gitanacowgirl on 2021/11/26 21:37
With recent upgrades including layers, better selection tools and more…there is less & less reason to use other apps on the phone or to export to my iPad for more robust editing. This is the BEST balance I have found so far for fast/convenient vs comprehensive. It’s making me create WAY more small masterpieces on the fly from random shots taken on my phone. The result is prolific collection of impressive phone-only shots/edits that are worthy of framing and signing.
Perfect

by Jamesgaston on 2021/11/26 19:30
The s/w works well. I use this editor while traveling, then Lightroom back in my office. I like that you can easily set the photo size before you save / share the photo. I find the home page of the app is ugly, though.
Amazing app to transform your pictures into creative canvas.
by KushJinju on 2021/11/26 19:07
This app gives you hundreds of data points to work with on images. You can apply colour or shades in granular levels. My favourite feature is Heal. You can pretty much cut out any thing or hide any thing using this feature. Overall it is a professional grade app with pricing set very reasonably. I wish they sell a lifetime license instead of taking money on monthly or yearly basis. Other than that it is total worth it for the features this app provides for editing images.

I’m new to the app, and I love the convenience of it. But there are a few things that I wish I could change. Number one I’m not sure how to change where it saves the photos I’ve been working on to… actually I’m not sure where they go when they’ve been saved. To it would be nice if you could change the size of your borders. As in for competitions. You have no real thin ones. (Also being to change the DPI would be helpful for those of us submitting to club competitions ). I’m sure as I use the app more I’ll get better right now I’m feeling very very clumsy! I’m sure it can do way more than what I even begin to understand now. Cheers

I am sorry for giving this a 1 star, but I will never be able to get into the app because I don’t have a Facebook, apple, or google account. So I tried making an account with my email address, password, and all of that stuff, but every time I tried my efforts were denied. Until I can figure that out I will not be using this app. 😥

Handy app
by Xero Aperture on 2021/11/25 19:40
Love this app it comes in handy for on the fly editing. Mobile photos are now becoming good enough to hold their own against digital cameras. I am able to make quick edits and has jus enough tools to add some precise editing such isolating a subject to add a bokeh effect. Obviously not as precise as a mouse but it gets the job done. Can’t wait to see what they add to this app.
So great

No replacement for desktop, msgs are annoying, privacy concerns
by BSB-Tuba on 2021/11/25 19:20
Let’s be clear, this is an ok app, but just ok. It’s absolutely no replacement for real Photoshop on a desktop or laptop. On top of that, Adobe forces you to share usage data & constantly whines if you have notifications turned off. The privacy concerns over usage sharing are not acceptable for a company the size of Adobe. Apple needs to clamp down on this just like they stopped Zuck & Co from getting personalized ad tracking information.
Awesome

This app is making me angry. I want to give it -5 stars.
by EricaReilly on 2021/11/25 17:20
I don’t know why the iPhone version is missing the camera profile for the iPhone12Pro camera, but here we are. Users have reported this issue for some time. The answers are ‘it was a design decision’ or our developers are working on it. Days, months, years later, it’s still an issue. If I can’t edit Apple RAW on an Apple device, what good is the app?

Are Good Developers Really This Hard To Find
by Bad app management on 2021/11/25 00:56
This amalgamation of several precious Adobe apps really takes the cake for poor ideas come to life. I hope the Project Manager finds a position they’re better suited for. I switched to my first iPhone roughly a year ago specifically for the increased functionality of Adobe apps on iOS versus android. Adobe has chosen gut these apps, and create this… they really didn’t put a lot of thought into it, frankly, if they’re not embarrassed as a whole they should be. This app speaks volumes- and what it’s telling me is that there’s no sense retaining a subscription with Adobe until my iPad is replaced. It might be worthwhile with an Apple Pencil, but they knew going into this that most Apple phones aren’t compatible with the pencil. They knew this, and they still chose to destroy pencil-free functionality. But hey, if you love PicsArt, this app has 1/3rd less pop ups. Yeah, you’re absolutely not going to make it through a session in this app without seeing a few pop up ads. They might consider taking into account our subscription status when feeding us ads for products we are already paying for. Poorly managed, poorly built, backdated UI; overall, an insult to a mainstay.

This app seemed fine at first, until you find out you can do virtually nothing. You have no freedom and have to pay for everything. It also crashed frequently if you try to add something. I don't recommend this app unless you're willing to pay for everything.
Painfully underpowered
by WigglesTheHoly on 2021/11/23 20:06
This app is a joke. We should be able to unleash the power of the Apple Pencil or even make simple background removals. Layers would be fantastic. This should be called something other than photoshop as it does not live up to the name.

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!
So much fun!
by YachtieM on 2020/08/22 16:23
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 and the spot correction that takes a blob from not always the best next spot over & creating a layering of branches instead of a darker spot in the background kind of thing. Overall this app provides a lot of excellent features. There are also other Adobe apps that connect into it with ease, 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.
Product Review With Request
by Westway72Tn on 2021/05/29 10:22
I've used Adobes photo apps for a long time and honestly think that their app layouts are Numero Uno. Lightroom, PS Express, and Photo Fix are used everyday and I couldn't do what I do without Adobe. Well I probably could, but it wouldn't be as easy as it is now. Now If I was able to design the final piece to my -Adobe Photo Maintenance Collection-, it would be an app that would allow the user to analyze any photograph to determine if that photo is actually the original image, or if it's been munipulated. An example of munipulation would be receiving an image that has possibly been overlayed with another image, maybe it's had parts removed by cutout, or something was erased. An app like that would be to cool. If possible the app would attempt to reconstruct the image to it's original glory. The user could just tap a fix photo button and the program would attempt to remove as much of the overlay / cover-up as possible, then it would attempt to rebuild the photo to it's original look. While your at it could you all throw in a simple -Focus My Blurred Photo button-. Just take a blurred photo that's recognizable and bring it into focus. I mean it's all 1's and 0's right? I'm sure you guys and girls at Adobe have got this wrapped up already. Cheers!
Love being able to use Photoshop on my iPhone!
by LMCallais on 2021/04/27 17:46
I have been using Photoshop since I was assigned to PSYOP in the Army in 1992. I had received a minor in Studio Art with an emphasis in B&W Photography during the good old film days and Photoshop blew my mind! I was an Interrogator/Linguist/Interpreter and when I saw the Illustrators being able to manipulate the digital images I made sure to shadow them when I had finished my translations. Good thing I did because I was called upon to use the skills I had learned when we had no Illustrator available. After I finished my Army Career, I obtained a job which required me to use Photoshop in my daily duties. I loved how Adobe has continued to evolve and improve Photoshop over the the almost 2 decades that I have enjoyed using it. I now use Photoshop on a personal capacity. It amazes me that Photoshop is available on my phone and iPad. I am currently retired and Service Connected Disabled Veteran who also has Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis, I have enjoyed learning compositing skills. I have done a series of self portraits showing my journey with Multiple Sclerosis. I have done other series, also. I share them with friends and the local Art guild. I believe that I will have a subscription to Photoshop - and the entire Suite, forever!
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.
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.
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!!

Iv reviewed this app like 20 time and continue to get printed to(like there isn’t even a x to close the window it just keeps bringing me here. And it’s always when stuff gets worse. Stop asking me to review it lol I pay for the premium or whatever and I’m bombarded with stupid “adds” while I can only edit photos 10/20 at a time before everything I click and every file prompts “cannot be opened”. Reset the app and I can edit maybe 6 more before the errors come again. Random crashing as if I actually go on a streak of editing without errors, but that’s less frustrating than having to reset the app every 10 minutes so I can actually get some editing done... Also the update that made it so I can’t access/edit photos from my own phone, on because the app needs to now be connected to the internet so you have the option to post on their “social media” built in dashboard.... I don’t want that.... I want to edit my photos..... I don’t need to see other peoples work(even if it is cool) I need to edit the photos on my phone so I can download/upload/take more photos to continue the cycle.... Ask me to review. I do it because the close button is blocked, do a stupid review, go back edit one photo and BOOM REVIEW OUR SHITASS APP. Well it would be better if I didn’t have to review the app every photo I crop and and center.... plus whatever else I wrote before...
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.
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)!!!
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)
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.
Textual Evidence Taken Out of Context
by Tessla555 on 2021/08/23 15:05
Hmm, it asked me to write suggestions on how to improve the text options in PS Express, however, I am scratching my head because the title to this screen now requests a review. I’ll do both, I surmise. Onward! This document is a basic bar graph. I figure it is worth noting that while I opened fresco, I closed it once I realized it doesn’t have the bar graph function. Because I often find myself wondering what qualifications strangers have to write podcasts or even these, my disclaimer is that I am inexperienced in all photo editing & quite unqualified for an educated review on these topics: social media posts, memes & scrapbooking. I did find it punctual that this review asking me to comment on the type features in PSExpress was requested at precisely the moment I was attempting to airdrop my image to my iMac out of frustration… the basic options afforded for typing on my photo didn’t work at all. I offer little, but the reason is more from my hands’ neuropathy than fodder for discussion: Please set a a text box that I can format of my own choosing and not so preset. Thanks!
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!
Powerful app when it works
by Airika8oh on 2021/08/23 21:17
I love using this app to quickly edit my cell phone photos. The variety and ease of the tools are great and allow me to make precise edits to get my photos to look exactly the way I want. I have many presets that I’ve created and saved to the “My Looks” menu that make it easy to replicate my favorite edits across many photos over time- a huge benefit to speed and consistency. However, the app is buggy. It freezes or crashes often. It can be very slow and get “stuck” when switching between menus in the app. And sometimes, it just won’t open certain images. These issues have not been a deal breaker for me- usually shutting down the app and restarting is all that is needed. But it is frustrating and slows down the process when I’m trying to edit several photos. One other wish for this app: once I save a series of edits to “My Looks”- I can no longer see the edit “recipe” for that edit. I wish there was a way to look at the “Looks” you’ve created and see the edits that you used to create that look. Overall, great app- very powerful and gets used almost daily. Like most things in life, does have room for improvements.
Good app with lots of potential! I see some areas for improvement.
by cindypain on 2021/11/17 21:25
I love Adobe and all of their products. The app is great, although I’d like to see more features and creative options. Also, I think the user interface could use a little bit of work. Right now the UI seems cluttered and a bit too ‘square’. A modern UI update that is more user friendly would be very beneficial. Besides those minor comments it’s a wonderful app! Even though I’d like more features, the functionality is there. Adobe did a good job combining their previous apps into a single, more integrate app. Now that they’re done with that it’s time to clean it up a bit, update the UI, add some industry-leading features in, and watch it take flight!! 🛫 P.S. Adobe if you’re reading this, you’re doing great sweetie! 🙏 I’ll be a customer for life (when I can afford it #ThankYouStudentDiscount 😅) and I’ll be cheering you on from the sidelines! If y’all ever need more constructive feedback let me know. And hey, if y’all ever need a bright young mind full of ideas, I’d love to work with/learn from you guys in any way I could be helpful. Adios for now, compadres 🤠
I love PS
by Emma Matrixa on 2021/10/22 01:16
I use this app a lot express myself by typing over pictures. What I find missing is shadows for the letters, better control over the alignment too. These are attributes that could be improved. Also, I haven’t found any way to coordinate the text and the picture after I type the text. Otherwise, this app serves me pretty well. I’ve tried other apps, but for me Adobe serve me the best. Although I find it a bit expensive, I decided it’s worth the cost. It gives me a huge variety of ways to express myself in a creative way. They’ve been in the business about ever since the dawn of the PC. They know what they are doing, the product is reliable and it works. But with every new product the learning curve is getting out of hand. I like to learn on the fly in my own projects, and an integrated Ai voice guide would be a great improvement, because I don’t like looking at some instructor on another screen with all their blah blah telling me how to do their project. They make me feel like a child, it’s annoying and a lot of what I learn gets lost on the way trying to capture the essence ce of what I want to learn.
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.
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.
People should read descriptions
by DayWalkerDANI on 2020/12/19 17:41
This isn’t photoshop, it’s PS express and is strictly a very basic photo editor, primarily for editing photos for like social media and stuff. It’s pretty obvious based on recent reviews that people aren’t reading descriptions and then writing negative reviews because they failed to read and just hit download, and because they want products for free. This app is great for very basic photo adjustments and expression. It’s intuitive and easy to navigate, and provides all the basic photo editing one needs. It’s not Photoshop and isn’t for removing parts of images, if you want that, you’ll have to use PS on a desktop. Not sure why people expect everything to be free, it’s 2020 and people need to pay their bills and eat, to expect developers to just give you their hard work for free is plain silly and selfish. If you don’t want to pay for it, find another app full of ads instead of complaining on reviews that you have to pay for a product you’re using.
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.
Photoshop Express VS Aviary
by computronico on 2021/10/20 18:03
I downloaded this app but never used it because I was so used to using Aviary even long after it was no longer supported or available in the App Store. I got so used to it and it was easy to use and free. Finally when I did an IOS upgrade it rendered Aviary useless. So I had to start using Photoshop Express. It is a lot harder to maneuver around than Aviary but it does have a more extensive and complex feature set. You will get hit with a lot of ads trying to get you to buy the subscription version. Be careful so of the ads are like land mines. You may think you are going to use an adjustment feature and it is a buy button. Be real careful using it, but it does give you really great results. This app does give you a lot of controls, but if you are in a hurry to to do a quick edit and send of a photo I would say try and find another app. I know how to use the desktop Photoshop very well and this app tries to give you those features but if you are on the go and want to do something quick and 123 while walking down the street, this is not the app for you.
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.
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.
Photoshop again had proven itself to Adobe as something
by DJ Derk Jickface on 2021/04/05 00:54
I’ve been using Adobe‘s photo shop for almost a decade and I got to say, that’s 10 years. Not only do I use adobe Photoshop for my photos. But Ben 10 years . I enjoy it when using the program. I’ve noticed that. But when I’m using a different program than adobe Photoshop, let’s say Google earth… it is such a different experience that I can’t even compare it to Adobe for a shop, and that’s kind of a shame if you don’t think about it really. I got to take a nap. I can’t give it five stars because it’s actually adobe Photoshop and not my cousin anymore .Only the app of which the app is used for what the app was billed for is when I choose to review the app because I use it and that’s true too if you think about it when I was 10 years ago. It seems that adobe Photoshop only feels like a photo editing software as good as Adobe‘s photo shop, only when you’re using Adobe Photoshop. But who’s really to say that any of that is something that happens? Ty Me that’s too.
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.
Not all exceptional things have to be complicated
by Blue Phoenix radio on 2020/08/26 04:09
I’ve been an Adobe product user for about 25 years, and I’ve seen the rise of different suites of programs but no program has defined Adobe more than Photoshop. This mobile version is a useful tool, it’s not complex it’s missing a lot of features you would think would be a part of Photoshop… But it is for the phone, and it is for the wider world of users. That being said it is an invaluable tool, and those who have Adobe software for other operating system should remember that you have extra feature of expanded features, easy login… And flawless saving across all your Adobe accounts through your login. The only question is why aren’t you already using it? My family stays enthusiastically engaged with Adobe products including my husband and my teenage children who are artists and filmmakers. Photoshop will give you a tool, where are you take it from there is entirely up to you.
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!
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!
The tool for creators on the go!
by KoriThePen on 2021/03/23 19:13
This application is a must-have for any creator working on multiple photos in advance or on the go. It allows you to express precisely what you want quickly and efficiently, which is exactly what the world of social media now demands regularly. Some of the things you can do are limited, but that's the major sacrifice you make when it comes to a more mobile-friendly version of photoshop. You shouldn't expect this to replace all other editing software entirely. Still, it will make your work life more efficient if you sacrifice a bit of perfection for a more manageable workload. Unless your audience is taking a microscope to your photos, I promise they won't be seeing a significant difference. I'd say for those major photoshop projects, definitely use the full photoshop or other complete editing software. Still, for the social media photos that need a bit of work or multi-client small companies who also might be on the move a lot, this is going to be your best friend.
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!
Excellent App; Two Suggestions...

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!!
My staple
by Hhxfjmcdh on 2021/05/02 02:48
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.
Better!

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.
Worth the Learning Curve
by jly2258 on 2021/09/21 00:58
While PS Express is quite intuitive and user-friendly, there is a curve to get through to become proficient with it. It is my go-to tool for quickly adjusting and enhancing, both my iPhone pix, as well as my blue-tooth generated Sony Ar3 shots. Like the desktop version of Photoshop, Express is deeper than meets the eye. It probably has more features than most people will find the need for using all of, but thats one of the cool things about it! There’s plenty of tools, basic and then a bit flashy, for everyone! I can’t say I ‘m doing too much with selections/masks here, as I mostly am working from my iPhone (I also have it installed on my iPad), and using my forefinger as the stylus! Not much for finnesse, but I get some great results working generally on entire photos this way. The more critical work I save for my desktop. I give Express 5 stars, but give yourself plenty of time to get comfortable with it. It’s worth the effort!
Great for all enthusiasts

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 would’ve PAID to keep Photoshop Mix & Fix
by Eggplant Papi on 2021/07/17 06:28
Y’all had a great thing with Mix & Fix. Now y’all take several steps backwards to incorporate counterintuitive ideas like meme and quote templates? In Mix you could go in depth with something as small as how far I wanted the font to be spaced; now I’m reduced to having to sort through bland templates that restrict more than innovate. For the option of a a monthly subscription or $35 for the year, I should be able to add a simple solid lined border or add more than only 5 layers. On top of that, how on earth are you supposed to go from editing a photo to mixing layers without exiting back to the main page and the app asking if you want to safe your progress or discard. This app is absolute trash and I was one of the suckers that fed into the click bait that all the things I could do in Mix “and more” would be in Express. I can never get back the hour that I spent in this useless, pandering-to-social-media-culture app. Like the title said I would literally pay to get Mix back and keep the support going rather than attempt to sit through this horrible UI and useless features like the stickers and text templates. This app is trash.
TERRIBLE BUGS
by KaitlynKaitlyn on 2020/09/14 13:17
I subscribed to Photoshop Express mobile and it’s garbage. It will not confirm my purchase even though I have paid for a month. It will say “Purchase Confirmed. Waiting for feature activation.” with a white background and loading wheel and will stay that way nonstop. I will click purchase again and it will say “Purchasing...” and nothing happens. I will click “Restore purchase” and it will have a “Restoring purchases” message with no change, same loading wheel. I have deleted the app and reinstalled it multiple times and nothing changes, same errors, always. It will ask if I want a 3 day trial even though I am subscribed, and even if I try to confirm that, I get the first “Purchase confirmed. Waiting for feature activation...” message AGAIN. There is nothing that will hey this app to work for me to export edits and use all tools EVEN THOUGH I HAVE PAID. Trying to get help for their “support” is ridiculous. I’ve just been out through the loop multiple times in that regard even. I don’t understand the high ratings because I can’t be the only one with this error. My phone is an XS Max and fully up to date on software. It’s literal GARBAGE for an app.
Bad update
by R. E. L. on 2021/07/03 21:18
I can't figure out how to save to camera roll since the last update. It keeps prompting me to sign up for free 3 day trial, after which I'll be charged a monthly fee. I'm not trying to do anything but put a border around a photo, not something I'm going to pay for when there are apps that let me do that for free. I need to be able to edit and save without being pestered to sign up for a free trial of something I'll never subscribe to, and I certainly don't want to have to screenshot every time because I can't figure out the update. Please fix, or if it's subscription only, please indicate that so people like myself can delete it and stop taking up space on our phones. I don't want to be screenshotting stuff I'm supposed to be paying for, but it's always been a free app and I see nothing to indicate that's no longer the case. It seems I just can't figure it out. Please fix if this is a bug. If this is no longer a free app with in app purchases, maybe it would be appropriate to put a notice in the app saying so, or at least make it impossible to begin editing without subscribing.
Photoshop Express
by SaraLaceY on 2021/10/12 21:46
I really like this app, and find it useful for many functions I need to edit photos quickly and easily. I especially do like the Blemish Removal feature and the easy and effective ways I can use it. The quality of the images in PE is very reliable and quite fine. There are enough features to do lots of things with my photos, but not so many that I feel overwhelmed. It’s not without ANY flaws, but none are bothersome enough to think of writing this. The fact is that I use this app for the editing of easily 75% of my work. It is reliable, and when I need it to quickly spiff up a set of photos to post for sale, well, this app does just that, no surprises. PE, Photoshop Express, is a flexible, intuitive little work horse. It is a fun editor that is easy to mess around with, while not leaving you worried that you won’t be able do again that edit you just did!
Freelance to Professional

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.
Good app but..
by ScottishRiteMason33 on 2021/08/29 23:45
Good app but they took away photoshop mix app and now since it’s added to this app and not it’s own separate app they want you to have a premium service to access it and add on layered photos which I feel It’s unfair. I feel like if you Added it to photoshop express then let it do what it did when it was its own separate app and let us access it freely or let us have the option to buy it outright to own without getting a premium service and having to pay monthly for this app. Especially for students who need it truly like me we have photoshop classes well classes that use photoshop and sometimes we don’t finish our work and have to wait till the next day to finish it but since now everything is going digital and some apps are being put on the phones this app will help us finish up any work and especially if needed to use mix and layer and combine photos. I feel it should be given again freely or something without having to pay month to month for the mix cut combine.
Grateful

I’ve been using Photoshop since 2004 and to say my experience just keeps getting better is an understatement. Picasso said, “everything you can imagine is real.” Photoshop makes this a reality. The are no limits on what you can make in photoshop. The photoshop express app is amazing in that it is jam packed with the best of Photoshop. It even allows you to create double and multiple exposure photos on your phone! The filters are one of my most favorite gifts offered by Photoshop Express because there is such a nice variety of them and bc some are rich in color and tone and others are lighter in color and focus more on the design of the image. If you want a one stop and go no further photo editing app, this one is it. Heck, just read through the other reviews and ask yourself if any other photo editing app has as many statistically good ones as this one does. ✌️
Great Achievements
by East Beth on 2021/11/06 18:33
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 .
Great but could easily be greater...

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 😅
