Just the absolute worse
Uhm, I’m in between at the moment.
by LifeAsRarasamon on 2020/01/11 04:13
Currently on Ipad editing my first picture since the download and now that I’m finished I’m ready to save my picture. Not only is it not saving but even when I attempt to export it to another app it kicks me out of the app. I don’t know why the app is crashing already but I am not a fan. I can sa y I had this app years ago and I never had these issues.
Don’t get
by anj1503 on 2020/01/06 13:24
Just awful. It’s not a free app. Doesn’t allow you to do anything without paying more. Just awful. Waste of time.
No picture displayed
by umerx on 2019/12/28 20:51
I just bought the app to use pro features but unfortunately it didn't work. It just shows me gray screen whenever I select any picture to modify. I am requesting for refund.
Color change
by Kmingus on 2019/12/28 17:08
Wanted to change a wedding dress from white to black and it doesn’t let you change it to the colors you want. It change it to a pale gray. Wasted money to change the color
Photo Doesn't Save
by Zom3 on 2019/12/24 05:46
I'm giving the app only one star because when I try to save the picture I get kicked out of the app. Please fix this...it seems like it could be a really nice app. I paid for the app and I had to delete it and download it over, now it won't restore my purchase and it wants me to pay again. This is ridiculous...please give me back my money! 😡
No Longer Working
by aChosenWon on 2019/12/22 19:15
You can’t save your image anymore...and you can’t screenshot it either because the controls and buttons you use to edit cover a lot of the image. Using iPhone 11 Pro Max w/iOS 13.3
Was good

0 star. A scam
by jamiemurphy10 on 2019/12/08 00:29
This app doesn’t do anything. If you’re looking to recolor your picture, DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP. It’s a free download but you can’t do any recoloring unless you accept the in-app purchases prompted. So I did. But the function still doesn’t work. Once again, IT DOESN’T ALLOW FOR RECOLORING OF YOUR PICTURE that we are looking for when we decide to download this app (only turned grey/ monochromatic color). Oh and one more thing, the app interface is horrible, even such basic underperforming features were made confusing to use. Requested for refund because the app literally doesn’t perform its functions as advertised but got denied. -10 star if I can give that.
Not free
by DragoUnity on 2019/12/07 22:35
Pointless app unless you want to pay for it.

by mailman_pimp on 2019/11/26 20:00
App is great and ready to use, but when I try to save to photo album, the app crashes and I cannot save it. Fix anytime soon, dev? I'll change my review if so, to 5 stars!!!!! Thanks😁

Everything is grayscale, no way to figure out how to change it. Clicking on “App support” takes you to their webpage. Never got to change one photo. Requesting a refund! This is awful!

The old version was MUCH better. The new version is ugly, starts with the photo in black and white, and is very touchy.
No saving
by JSA$2019 on 2019/10/26 17:19
I used it, picture came out nice, BUT I tried to save the photo to my library multiple times and it did not save. It didn’t even save the different versions I did when I saved them separately. Waste of time if can’t save.
Garbage!
by Mike the biker guy on 2019/10/25 20:10
This app is terrible. Not user friendly and you have to have in app purchases to do anything. Don’t waste your money!
Terrible!
by fconverse on 2019/10/14 15:03
It’s hard to believe that ANY of these positive reviews were written by any objective person. Unless there is some hidden tutorial or instructions to explain how to use what appears to be a simple, or perhaps more accurately, a SIMPLISTIC interface, the description of the features in this app is not just misleading, those features don’t exist. But, because I had to pay 99 cents to actually access the features in this “free” app (which by itself is dishonest), I had know way of knowing beforehand. I am usually very careful about downloading apps without some hint of their reputation, but this app’s creator got me this time. Congratulations!
You have to pay for color change?!
by Michelle 「Ace Family Member」 on 2019/10/14 15:02
The only thing this app does is allow you to choose what you want black n white and the original color. The rest like change the color of a dress from white to red, you have to pay for. disappointing
Incredibly aggressive adverts
by koobifora on 2019/10/12 15:53
The advert nagging is so extreme, this app is barely useable. Don’t bother downloading this aggressive mess.

Great for Recoloring or Decolorimg Pictures
by Cat*Butt on 2019/09/30 21:52
Ads aside and the watermark too this is an app I’ve had and used sporadically for years now. I really do like it and have recommended it to others. Give it a try you’ll like it.
No recolor unless you pay $.99-
by Chooch440 on 2019/09/30 19:35
This is not a free app if you want to recolor a photo. False advertising!!

Was working, now not
by KanKapp on 2019/09/19 12:03
I’ve had this app for quite some time. I even paid to remove ads and have extra features. It was a fantastic way to add some great color effects and really make pictures pop. The app wasn’t working (not loading my pictures. Unable to edit.) just a black screen. I deleted the app and redownloaded and now my ads are back with no way to restore purchases and it’s still not working. Now I have to find a new color effect app. Hopefully one some one will update regularly. (App support lead me to a site w no help)
Crashes When Saving
by TDRock on 2019/09/17 17:36
So that’s not great. I have to email finished images to myself to make sure I get them. Otherwise the app does work.
AWFUL APPLICATION!!

Basically painting over the picture... False advertising... when talking the picture it comes in gray which is a built in feature within iPhone... DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!
Recolor Feature Costs Money

This app used it be good. Now every other time you touch it you can’t do anything without getting an ad. Great way to lose your fans! Now I’ll go and pay for a competitive app that didn’t decide to be obnoxious about it.
Used to work

I love Color Effects, but the app stopped working altogether. Can’t find a way to contact app support. 🙁
Very Upset
by Kitten Mew Mew on 2019/08/16 18:42
These apps need to be reworked severely. I have been looking for apps that recolor photos and you ALWAYS have to buy that feature! Why would I get a recoloring app if all I wanted to do was grey out certain parts!! I digress, it is only 99 cents but if youre looking for a quick recolor app, this aint it. Do not recommend
You have to pay to change the color
by KWW12 on 2019/08/09 22:13
If you want to change the color of your image it’s 99 cents.
Lots of ads
by Jkensuke on 2019/08/07 01:32
So I'm sure this is a great app but good good the ads are very agressive and bad launching app store games and YouTube videos in the first three clicks.
Can’t save pics to my phone.
by Napdelo on 2019/08/02 15:43
I like it but it won’t let me save pics to my phone. Just crashes. Really annoying. I see others have the same issue. Fix this and I’ll change my rating to 5 stars
Waste
by crpate86 on 2019/07/30 17:23
Absolutely dumb. No better or different than any other app out there. Why even have a free version of the free version doesn’t allow you to do what the main purpose of the app is. What a Waite of time.
Cannot get any functions to work

I used this App a few years ago and it worked great, now whenever I attempt to save the image to my pictures it closes and nothing is saved. I’ll delete this app again. Pitty.
Didn’t work
by Lysaao on 2019/07/24 20:27
Didn’t work, was not able to choose any colors to edit the photo with. Could not crop photo very well with the crop tool.
Keeps crashing
by Degopwn12 on 2019/07/16 13:23
First to use recolor you have to pay for it. Then when you try to save the image it just crashes. So worthless.
Ok, recolor feature not free, won’t save to album
by gilbertsgrapes on 2019/07/12 00:12
App blanks out (not an actual crash) when attempting to save project to photo album. I could only save by emailing the project to myself (.png format). Can’t input color value for true color match, which would be a great feature. Recolor easy to use; I recommend using a stylus for greater precision. Toggling between gray, recolor, and original color brush, especially to correct any mishaps is easy; the “recently used” color palette is nice.
Love. This. App.

by wtfwhyyy on 2019/06/19 15:36
Crashes when I try to save to to my photo album on my phone. Everything else works ok. To get a pic on my phone, i have to save it to Dropbox, open it in MS Paint, convert it to a jpeg or png then put it back in my Dropbox then save it to my photo album. Cant believe I wasted my money on this.

Looks promising but...
by NightLord Raven on 2019/06/17 04:31
The app looks great and is pretty easy to use... other than of course having to pay for recoloring and to remove ads. I wouldn’t mind the adds to use the recoloring but having to pay to use that and get rid of ads I don’t mind seem a bit... redundant. Even more so that I could get a simple app like this for a computer cost free and able to use all the features it offers. So if the devs of this ever see this review then please get rid of the pay wall and instead make it optional. The app overall shows a lot of promise for mobile users who don’t have access to a computer and still try to do some sort of quality recolor.
Does nothing

Zero feature = zero star review
by Sa Lay on 2019/06/15 02:40
This “free” app does not given you the most basic feature, ie to use a specific color on a photo, unless you paid for it. Don’t bother to download or install. It’s a waste of time.

The quality of the saving picture is too low .... PNG format , Appropriately 130 KB There is not any tools for Automated color selection, every thing is manually.... Error to save photo, you should email the photo to be able to save it.

Upgrade isn’t fully functioning
by AllAboutDogs on 2019/05/11 09:40
I first tried the free Color Effects app, I wanted the option to add color, so I almost immediately upgraded to the purchased version. Disappointingly, I’m not able to see much difference, if any at all, I can’t do anything with the color after I choose it. After selecting the color, there is no way to go back to the photo. If I do use the BACK button to return to my photo, either the image isn’t there and there’s only a blank gray screen, or the coloring function isn’t working when the photo is tapped or touched. I tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but it’s making me buy it again. I’m at a loss...

I would like to have tried out your app however I am on able to use it because it’s telling me to use the side button to purchase it. I tried and tried and tried and nothing happens.
Update
by ThatJakeJohnson on 2019/04/30 22:47
I got used to it quick I paid .99 cents for the upgrade. Great price but now I can’t save the photo. It sends me to the home screen so I have to screen shot it and crop it by myself. It’s just a pain
Won’t save
by more options needed on 2019/04/26 03:11
Paid for the upgrade in app and after spending a long time on a photo it just crashes when I try to save it. Complete waste of time and money 🤬
Not worth your time!
by WrongWayWally on 2019/04/23 10:46
When I first downloaded this app it was wonderful. Now you can’t get past the ads and if you can youlll find nothing you saved is there! Very disappointed!
App is a Scam!
by jkeitz on 2019/04/21 21:53
I tried this app, and to recolor a photo you have to pay, so I paid. Now I can color all over a photo, you know, just like you can do in the stock photo app 🤬. It is supposed to look like the actual object is recolored, but it really just looks like you scribbled over your photo with a colored sharpie.
Doesn’t recolor dark colors
by Melovecacadoo54 on 2019/04/18 02:53
App required upgrade to Pro to recolor, and then would not recolor black or other dark colors.
Bad.
by haleyjane13 on 2019/04/15 20:12
This app is sketchy and cheap. You can’t do anything with it even though it is advertised as free. Just nah. hard pass. Don’t waste your time.
Used to be a great app
by R6Rider on 2019/04/09 15:58
Now I can’t even get into this app and I paid for add free a long time ago, this app is now useless.
Don’t Download!
by Finketim on 2019/04/04 22:01
App is so terrible. Yes, the app is free but when you download it it doesn’t let you do anything. It’s a waste of your time unless you want to pay. There are tons of better apps for recoloring things that are free.
Don't uninstall the app, update your phone instead
by JNodine on 2019/04/04 19:53
I really liked this app until I tried to save my finished image to my photos. It said it saved, but it wasn't there when I opened photos. I came here to the reviews and noticed a lit of other people had the same issue. Then I checked my phone to see if I missed an update, and I had. After I downloaded and ran the latest iPhone update, I opened this app again and saved my work to photos without any problem.
Bad quality
by helpful19 on 2019/03/25 20:54
Very hard to use. No support past the first “tutorial”. No website to ask questions. Photos didn’t color effect. Wish I could get a refund but customer support leads you to a advertisement for another app.

Too many ads and prompts to buy full version
by Hautfirechic on 2019/03/03 05:03
In the less than five minutes I spent trying this app out, I was attacked by ads for unrelated content and multiple prompts to buy the full version. I’m not opposed to SOME ads popping up on free versions, but this was ridiculous. I’ll be uninstalling this immediately. Congrats! Ten minutes for me to install and then uninstall an app is a record for me. Usually, it takes me days to determine I hate an app.
Won’t save photos to iPhone photo library
by TCat39 on 2019/02/23 03:54
App works OK but when I edit a picture and select “save to library”, the app crashes.
Why?
by Dukruse on 2019/02/16 17:56
I was super exited, but when I found out you had to pay to change the colors I got mad. All you get for free is to make the photos gray. A regular iPhone can do that. In the end very disappointed in the money hungry developers, there is already enough ads. Why do they need the extra 1 dollar.
Unsure

I have to pay again??
by Llama sama on 2019/02/04 23:55
Hey, I downloaded app and have been using it for maybe almost a year now. I purchased the “pro” version to let me actually recollection things back then, too. However, I started having problems with the app today: it wouldn’t let me save any of my work to my photos. So I uninstalled it and went to redownload it... lo and behold, it says I have to pay yet again to access the “pro” version that I’ve had for almost a year. Why? Is there anyway I can just have access to the recolor option again since I’ve already paid?? The reason for the rating is because it’s asking me to pay again for a feature I should still have access to, not allowing me to download my work into my album, and I honestly haven’t been entirely happy with the color wheel provided for recoloring; however, this app is the best I can do at the moment and wish to continue using it. Please help me out here so I can keep recoloring photos.
Won’t save
by Chonching14 on 2019/02/04 23:15
It’s a good app and I also got the upgrade by paying the extra $.99. But when I go to save it... it just goes exits out of the app and doesn’t save the photo. Basically not point of having this app if I can’t save it.
Nothing in life is free apparently
by Nicaxis on 2019/02/01 01:12
Don’t advertise an app for free if you can do absolutely nothing with the free version of the app. Just start with advertising the app and the actual cost. Straightforward is best.

Heck no

You can’t do s!!t with this app. Too bad there’s not a zero star rating because this piece of garbage app deserves it. If you download the you are a communist Hillary Clinton supporter.
Cannot actually save the projects. Buggy mess.
by Brickedbox on 2019/01/21 05:33
I paid the $.99 to use the recolor and ditch the ads, only to find out I cannot save anything to my album without the app crashing. What is the point, if I cannot export a project? Trash. Going back to adobe.
Don’t Download
by shadowkast66 on 2019/01/17 06:23
This app is pointless, it turns your picture to black and white. If you want to do anything else, you have to pay. The “Free” app is a joke.
Great app, but...
by Muyenga430 on 2017/07/23 06:39
I would love to see one change. I would really like to save a color permanently. I use the app to "hand color" photos, and had recently worked very hard to get just the right skin tone, but in the process of doing the rest of the photo that skin tone was lost. PLEASE - give us a way to save a color permanently!
Very Cool
by Djdaniel0717 on 2016/11/18 13:38
We recently had family photos done by a professional photographer. My wife had already picked out matching clothes that would go with mine and my sons outfit. I had a red plaid shirt, he wore a red shirt with navy stripes, and my wife wore a navy shirt to tie it all in. Well, the photos turned out great but my wife was a little bummed that she had failed to add any red in her outfit as the blue color in the plaid shirt I had on showed up more than we expected due to the background. Using "color effects" I altered the color of her shirt from blue to red in about 10 minutes! Once I had the color right, I went back and added the original color to everything else. My only suggestion would be to maybe have an option to grey out a selected area only to so that only that portion of the photo gets changed. This would prevent having to add the original color back to the full photo once the color change is successful. It worked perfect the way it is for this picture specifically but I think that an option like that would benefit in other situations. Regardless, thanks to this app, we now have our perfect Christmas card! I would highly recommend and It does exactly what it describes. Watch the video tutorial and you'll enjoy it quicker with out having to learn it the layout. The video is only about 5 minutes or so and the narrators voice is very monotone, but it did help!

Changing the color was pretty easy. Two items keep this from being 5 Star. 1. Doesn’t allow the user to start from the original photo. Changes it to black/white then the user must add back in the color. So if you just want to change a very small portion (maybe a shirt color in Family photo) you have to start with the entire photo. 2. Least desired attribute is the exported photo, once finished, looks blurry. Has the characteristics of a photo that has been highly compressed for export. If you are just looking to change something for Facebook ... probably not an issue. If you want to print the final photo, this app probably not the right one.
Paid, crash, reinstall, pay again?
by JuJuIzBac on 2018/07/17 16:23
I just paid the .99 upgrade then all of a sudden I was charged $1.05. No big deal. Got to play with the app and when try to save the pic on my phone it just crashes and apps turns off. Did this several times so I uninstalled it and reinstalled it. Now it’s asking me to pay once again to upgrade! I event have the proof of purchase in my email. Update: I finally got my account back. Didn’t do anything cause I was gonna just get a different app but it still crashes when I try to save the picture to my phone. I have to email it to myself and get it from there. What a hassle. Still looking for different apps if this still keeps up.
Change it back.
by Jane_Ang on 2016/06/25 00:49
So a long time ago I got this app and loved it to death. It was free, worked really well, and was really fun. My iPad crashed and I had to restore the whole thing. I come back to fund that the once free app that I used regularly has been replaced by a paid app. Now this wouldn't be so bad if it was charged up front or if it was pay to get the apps removed. No ladies and gentlemen. To recolonize at all you have to pay a dollar. To recolor like I use to I now have to pay money? I loved this app so much but it became cheap and slick. Do not download if you expect a free app where you recolor. It's false advertising. If it was changed to just if you don't want adds you pay this would be fine, but this has changed it fully. Thank you for ruining my day.
AMAZING
by Diana Chow on 2017/06/05 00:55
i used this to help me pick the color for a pair of sunglasses i was painting over as a DIY project. this app made all the difference and helped me pick the optimal color since i was able to see what the frames would look like with the colored lenses that were already on it. so much easier than me attempting to do the same in Photoshop. THANK YOU! it took me a couple minutes to figure out on my own. the conversion to grayscale right off the bat threw me off a bit, it'd be nice if that was an option you could disable.
Works Perfectly
by tampico-chan on 2016/06/22 20:08
I love this app. I've had it for years. I love to recolor pics, especially eyes. The zoom is great, it has a full color pallet along with memorizing past colors you have used, and the auto correct is amazing for the small spots. Really the only annoying thing is that the ads are all "minigames" which makes my device run slower. But ads is how the free version is paid for, you wait a few seconds and can click to "X" out, and then you are back to your project. Thanks!
Don't uninstall the app, update your phone instead
by JNodine on 2019/04/04 19:53
I really liked this app until I tried to save my finished image to my photos. It said it saved, but it wasn't there when I opened photos. I came here to the reviews and noticed a lit of other people had the same issue. Then I checked my phone to see if I missed an update, and I had. After I downloaded and ran the latest iPhone update, I opened this app again and saved my work to photos without any problem.
Awesome App and Easy to Use
by iReviewer_IOS_Games~ on 2016/09/06 21:08
I've seen around that people are talking smack about this app beinng horrible and you have to pay for stuff, but I haven't had any problems with it. Recolor is very easy to use with simple tools to get the look you want. I've been using this app for years now and it's been wonderful. The only thing that's been weird is that when I put in a photo is comes out kinda fuzzy. So maybe they could fix the fuzziness. Otherwise, excellent app. (I love the glow one too!!) :D
Some issues
by The-One-Who-Likes-To-Draw on 2017/05/03 03:08
I use this app mainly to recolor the background of a picture. At first this worked out perfectly for me and everything was fine. But recently I have been having some problems. Whenever I try to recolor the background of a picture, it instead Is a pale color far off from what I had intended. For example, say I have a bowl of fruit with a yellow background and I want to change only the background to dark blue. If I color the entire picture, the fruit shows up dark blue, but the background is a pale light blue/purple color. Is there anyway I can fix this?
DO NOT DOWNLOAD
by Loni N on 2016/05/19 12:21
App is horrible! Once you download it does not allow you to do anything. You have to purchase the features. Once I downloaded and uploaded one of my pictures to work on the app wanted my finger scan which is used to purchase from the App Store. Very slick. If you are going to charge for the app just charge for it up front. Don't let me waste my time and storage space if your marketing something that is not actually a free app. If your looking for a app like this I suggest looking for a similar app somewhere else. The one feature that you can use is to bring back color which is on the original picture. And even that is not all that great, I've used better.
It's been better
by Myellow160 on 2017/01/02 20:55
I have used this app a couple of years ago, and fell in love with it, I got a new phone and only just now re downloaded it to quickly do a picture with it. Right away unnoticed a difference, before when I used the recolor option, it was free, and amazing, now that I have re downloaded it, I have to pay .99$ to get that option and remove the adds. I'm not sure why that is, not that .99$ is a big amount or anything, but comparing to before when it was free I don't like that much. But it's still a great app to use.
Looks promising but...
by NightLord Raven on 2019/06/17 04:31
The app looks great and is pretty easy to use... other than of course having to pay for recoloring and to remove ads. I wouldn’t mind the adds to use the recoloring but having to pay to use that and get rid of ads I don’t mind seem a bit... redundant. Even more so that I could get a simple app like this for a computer cost free and able to use all the features it offers. So if the devs of this ever see this review then please get rid of the pay wall and instead make it optional. The app overall shows a lot of promise for mobile users who don’t have access to a computer and still try to do some sort of quality recolor.
Upgrade isn’t fully functioning
by AllAboutDogs on 2019/05/11 09:40
I first tried the free Color Effects app, I wanted the option to add color, so I almost immediately upgraded to the purchased version. Disappointingly, I’m not able to see much difference, if any at all, I can’t do anything with the color after I choose it. After selecting the color, there is no way to go back to the photo. If I do use the BACK button to return to my photo, either the image isn’t there and there’s only a blank gray screen, or the coloring function isn’t working when the photo is tapped or touched. I tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but it’s making me buy it again. I’m at a loss...
Someone else said not to down load, I double that
by Fototico on 2016/06/22 08:03
This app is junk full of ads. And I am talking full screen ads with videos. I refuse to pay for a full version for an app such as this. Full screen ads make the developers look desperate and beggars. It also makes the app look cheap. I am deleting this app. It also has water marks and it seems that it won't go away unless you rate this lousy app five stars. It only shows how pathetic the developers are. How can they watermark a picture that they have no legal rights to? It seeks to be to be a scam app by scam artists. I wonder if Apple knows about this? Don't waste your time, not worth your time and much less your money.
Amazing
by *** JJ *** on 2016/04/30 15:29
I've had this app for a long time, and I've got to say, it's one of my favorites. The controls are easy to use, and the possibilities are endless. However recently I just got it on my iPad and found that you had to pay for recoloring, but the recent update fixed it and made it free again. I'm giving this app five stars not just because they added recoloring again, but because this is overall a great app.
0 star. A scam
by jamiemurphy10 on 2019/12/08 00:29
This app doesn’t do anything. If you’re looking to recolor your picture, DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP. It’s a free download but you can’t do any recoloring unless you accept the in-app purchases prompted. So I did. But the function still doesn’t work. Once again, IT DOESN’T ALLOW FOR RECOLORING OF YOUR PICTURE that we are looking for when we decide to download this app (only turned grey/ monochromatic color). Oh and one more thing, the app interface is horrible, even such basic underperforming features were made confusing to use. Requested for refund because the app literally doesn’t perform its functions as advertised but got denied. -10 star if I can give that.
Great😐
by Audzzzzz the awesome on 2016/05/12 02:51
It is ok I would not get this app unless you are going to get the pro because the pro has a feature that you can change the color of the picture but the normal one does not do that so get the pro of anything. The problem is with my normal on me o have no idea how to do anything and how it does not explain that or even what to do for mine it is stupid unless you get the pro so get the pro one.
Terrible!
by fconverse on 2019/10/14 15:03
It’s hard to believe that ANY of these positive reviews were written by any objective person. Unless there is some hidden tutorial or instructions to explain how to use what appears to be a simple, or perhaps more accurately, a SIMPLISTIC interface, the description of the features in this app is not just misleading, those features don’t exist. But, because I had to pay 99 cents to actually access the features in this “free” app (which by itself is dishonest), I had know way of knowing beforehand. I am usually very careful about downloading apps without some hint of their reputation, but this app’s creator got me this time. Congratulations!
PURE AMAZINGNESS
by Kittyluv1234 on 2016/05/15 00:18
This app is great. You can make the important parts of your picture pop with color while the background or unwanted parts are gray. I love editing photos and this one really helped with edits. It allows you to change the brush size and opacity when coloring. There are so many wonderful things about this app, sure you have to pay to change the natural color but it's totally worth it!
So far so great!
by Remmik_ on 2017/04/05 18:26
I have only used this app twice but it's very intuitive and simple to get the hang of it. I already had a cheap stylus used to navigate around on your phone or tablet but I never saw much use for it till now. Works much better with a small point stylus. I admit I'm going through the trouble of rating this since it's a free way to remove the watermarks but it's an honest review.
It's not free. That was a trick!
by TJR 600 on 2016/07/30 04:02
I am sort of being forced to review this before I've had a chance to really use it. I downloaded the app because it was free. I started using it and was interrupted when I tried to recolor my photograph. I was asked to pay. I set up my credit card to buy the app for a dollar and then was asked to leave a review if I wanted to have the app with no ads. They wanted to review at this point so here it is. I have no idea whether I paid for the app yet and what it will do when I start using it. All I can say is the recolors Asian works well.
Best recoiled app EVER
by Buffalo Wing Man on 2017/01/17 22:51
And no I'm not just writing what your reading right now to remove watermarks but I am writing this to inform purchasers be fore purchasing that this app is amazing. You can recolor anything. The first one I did was a Nissan GT-R and it's so good I made it my wallpaper. It's amazing. One improvent I wish was on the app right now is if you could keep the pic grey but let's say a wall is blue then you could make it red on here. Good app :)
Terrible
by AwesomeAqua on 2016/08/01 11:06
Don't get this app. I had it a few months ago and it worked wonderfully, and I could recolor any picture. Besides the full page ads and the fact that it took down the quality of the pictures it was more or less a good app. I redownloaded it a few days ago and now you need to pay to recolor anything, and the app still has ads absolutely everywhere. I was very disappointed and deleted immediately. Save yourself time and don't get this, Facetune costs 2.99 I believe but it has everything this app has and more and is worth the money. Hope this helped.
NOT FREE!!!
by Paskull16 on 2016/05/29 07:16
The performance is pretty good to me but it does cost money. But if you're willing to pay the money this is a good app. Also it has a watermark that you can't remove unless you rate the app 5 stars. I bought it on my phone last year and it didn't have the watermark but when I got it on my iPad it was there. It's easy to crop out though.
Was working, now not
by KanKapp on 2019/09/19 12:03
I’ve had this app for quite some time. I even paid to remove ads and have extra features. It was a fantastic way to add some great color effects and really make pictures pop. The app wasn’t working (not loading my pictures. Unable to edit.) just a black screen. I deleted the app and redownloaded and now my ads are back with no way to restore purchases and it’s still not working. Now I have to find a new color effect app. Hopefully one some one will update regularly. (App support lead me to a site w no help)
Wish their was more color options
by inChrist25 on 2019/01/03 21:09
Would be nice to have more different types of colors like chrome colors and neon colors and other types of color shades. And wish the image save to photo library would work every time I go to save a picture I color it freezes then exits out of the app?
Great App!
by Penelope'sMom2017 on 2017/06/21 07:12
When I discovered this new trend of graying out a photo and recoloring, I knew I wanted to try it out on my newborn's photos. But not every app is as easy as you would think. This one is amazing! It's super easy and my photos come out with such great quality- ready to print! Highly recommend. Even for beginners such as myself.
It told me to do this but 😄
by Honesty for the Best on 2017/03/23 19:58
This is a cool app!! I love editing photos and this makes it wayyyy cooler. Sometimes it's hard to color EXACTLY where you want the color to be when you don't have a stylist pen but it works out in the end! This is perfect if you have a theme on Instagram and you don't want every single thing to be one filter. Recomended
Nolongeraspleased
by hiddenobjectsfanatic on 2016/12/24 18:39
Have had this app for several years. i have another splash app, as well--but, what this goes beyond, is to allow you to change or add additional color of your choice. However, since a recent update, you felt the need to frame my work with your badge. i do not care for this!; plus it covers a bottom portion of my photo. i am left having to crop it out, losing a piece of my work
Does not work as it claims
by acharlie212 on 2017/06/23 21:10
Does not crop objects only zooms in and out. Does not work on black or very dark colors. Does not return the picture to the real original color ex. greens return to blue. Tried to contact the developer without any luck - received a message "safari cannot find the server" However, the app had no problem asking and collecting more money from me before starting the project. Disappointed, I would really like this app to work. I would like the developer to contact me and see if this can be fixed.
Ok, recolor feature not free, won’t save to album
by gilbertsgrapes on 2019/07/12 00:12
App blanks out (not an actual crash) when attempting to save project to photo album. I could only save by emailing the project to myself (.png format). Can’t input color value for true color match, which would be a great feature. Recolor easy to use; I recommend using a stylus for greater precision. Toggling between gray, recolor, and original color brush, especially to correct any mishaps is easy; the “recently used” color palette is nice.
Great simple app w/ a fun punch
by Dr.WinMac on 2017/02/26 09:35
I've been using Color Effects for a year or so and I this this is a solid & fun app. It gives a surprising amount of control over coloring effects on pics. Has live camera and library options for importing...plus zoom, brush sizing and walk thru tutorials. 5-stars all the way!!!
Not a free app. Change it back.
by Umbreonlover95 on 2016/09/19 23:10
I used to love this app and would've given it five stars until recently. I had this app for about two years and had to delete it because of storage space. Upon redownloading it this week, I tried to color with it, only to be told I had to buy the pro version. Don't buy this app if you don't want to pay for it. Don't sell an app as free and then charge your consumers in order to get money out of it. Otherwise this is false advertising. I'd give it zero stars if I could.
Was a nice app back in the day..
by DeadFrogDave on 2017/04/14 10:10
Been using this app for years now, and it was great! Hadn't used it for a while and just did this dope pic for my wife but when I went back to view in album, it has a watermark at the bottom! I HATE APPS that was free and now u have to pay to use what u already had!!!!!! We helped u become popular. U charge the new ppl not the ones who was faithful and recommended your product to ppl. Bet I won't recommend again. I'll find another app like this! It's not that hard! Way to crap on your fans.
Worth getting
by Lava glacier on 2017/01/24 08:01
Free, but then you pay a small fee to remove the watermark and unlock certain features. I don't have a problem with that. Just keep improving the app! It's fun to tinker with, use, and the results can be as fine or rushed as you want the to. Great way to add some interest to your photos! ** Improvements A) a target point where the pencil/brush tip is represented by a dot or similar B) An option to allow the pencil/brush to be held at a target point above your finger so that you can see where your pencil/brush tip is. This would be fantastic for tight areas requiring intense detail changes
Love it!
by KitsuneSama on 2017/12/31 06:10
I love using this to make my photos even more unique. It's easy to use, very straightforward. I haven't found an app as good or trustworthy as this one, and always come back to it. Just tonight, I bought the app for the purpose of recoloring some of my older photos. It was totally worth it.
Consistently good
by Geo-genius on 2017/03/08 20:12
I've used this app for years and haven't found a better one for this purpose. The only improvement I'd like to see is and easier to use zoom setting. It's too simple to accidentally recolor the image when zooming. Otherwise, it's great!
Bait and switch
by SYS CRMC on 2016/05/13 03:40
I downloaded the app because I liked the photo editing features, reviews were positive, and it was free. However, once I tried to use it, I was unable to do ANY editing until I bought the upgrade. Since it was 99c I went ahead with the purchase. Now that I've used the app and had time to think about it, I should have removed the app. I rewarded unethical behavior since free does not mean "only if the buyer is held hostage by the app until s/he forks over money." I wish I knew how to report this.
Nice for business
by AnW2010 on 2016/08/26 15:51
I hand paint wedding Converse for my business, and have been searching for an app that will help me with making colors pop in photos. This app has worked wonderfully! Easy to use, and I really liked the easy to understand tutorial!
Almost forgot I had this!
by JRB344Boll on 2016/06/07 04:02
I used this briefly a while back and enjoyed it. I almost forgot about it until my kid opened it. I forgot how much fun it is to use and how easy. I've had other similar apps and this is by far the most accurate and easy to use!
Takes your money then stops working.
by BigWheelsTurnin on 2018/08/18 12:46
You can’t re-color photos without the in-app purchase to activate the feature which is fine for only 99 cents, but then it stops loading photos and you just get s grey screen when you try to load a new photo. I deleted and re-downloaded which allowed me to load new photos to edit but then it didn’t remember that I purchased the upgrade. So I waisted a dollar and never could use the app to re-color photos.
Awesome
by lschimonitz on 2016/07/04 12:22
I've had the ap for quite awhile. It does exactly what it says it will.. I wish I had just a bit more control; that's most likely my user error. I've done some fun recoloring and gotten great feedback! It's my go to when I want to make a picture pop!
Great App.
by MarieGoble on 2016/06/24 20:26
This app is the best at making things POP out! I've been using this app all day long. I've been editing pictures and sending them to my friends and the love them. This app works great. I recommend it for anyone that needs to edit a pic like this app does.
Made me do this?
by Phouse81 on 2016/11/04 18:41
I don't know what the exact incentive is to give 5 stars but it appears that I have been told to do so if I want to be able to import my image. Great app. Potential though if you wanna get the "full" version. This version should be called "Grey Effects"
Love it
by Dances4thelord on 2016/05/29 16:22
This app is great and helps me be able to select certain colors to pull out of the picture and make you look so much more unique is very awesome and I keep using it for about everything right now with a few pictures.
Great for the quick effect
by AdrianneSurian on 2016/05/24 13:34
I do a lot of photo editing on my computer and this is a nice app for recoloring on the fly. Once you get the hang of navigating I can color pop in under a minute which is a feature I happen to use a lot. I don't need heavy editing.
The free version works fine
by Lolalolalala on 2016/11/16 11:16
It's works perfectly fine for a free app. The ads are annoying, I wish they're weren't as many but what's else is new. I like that it has a soft focus option for the brush. The watermark was a turn off for me, but they trade a review for a watermark free app.

Just the absolute worse
Uhm, I’m in between at the moment.
by LifeAsRarasamon on 2020/01/11 04:13
Currently on Ipad editing my first picture since the download and now that I’m finished I’m ready to save my picture. Not only is it not saving but even when I attempt to export it to another app it kicks me out of the app. I don’t know why the app is crashing already but I am not a fan. I can sa y I had this app years ago and I never had these issues.
Don’t get
by anj1503 on 2020/01/06 13:24
Just awful. It’s not a free app. Doesn’t allow you to do anything without paying more. Just awful. Waste of time.
No picture displayed
by umerx on 2019/12/28 20:51
I just bought the app to use pro features but unfortunately it didn't work. It just shows me gray screen whenever I select any picture to modify. I am requesting for refund.
Color change
by Kmingus on 2019/12/28 17:08
Wanted to change a wedding dress from white to black and it doesn’t let you change it to the colors you want. It change it to a pale gray. Wasted money to change the color
Photo Doesn't Save
by Zom3 on 2019/12/24 05:46
I'm giving the app only one star because when I try to save the picture I get kicked out of the app. Please fix this...it seems like it could be a really nice app. I paid for the app and I had to delete it and download it over, now it won't restore my purchase and it wants me to pay again. This is ridiculous...please give me back my money! 😡
No Longer Working
by aChosenWon on 2019/12/22 19:15
You can’t save your image anymore...and you can’t screenshot it either because the controls and buttons you use to edit cover a lot of the image. Using iPhone 11 Pro Max w/iOS 13.3
Was good

Unable to save...

...edited photo to photo library. The app crashes and shuts down.
Not a fan!
by @kk10 on 2019/10/26 19:07
The old version was MUCH better. The new version is ugly, starts with the photo in black and white, and is very touchy.
No saving
by JSA$2019 on 2019/10/26 17:19
I used it, picture came out nice, BUT I tried to save the photo to my library multiple times and it did not save. It didn’t even save the different versions I did when I saved them separately. Waste of time if can’t save.
Garbage!
by Mike the biker guy on 2019/10/25 20:10
This app is terrible. Not user friendly and you have to have in app purchases to do anything. Don’t waste your money!
Terrible!
by fconverse on 2019/10/14 15:03
It’s hard to believe that ANY of these positive reviews were written by any objective person. Unless there is some hidden tutorial or instructions to explain how to use what appears to be a simple, or perhaps more accurately, a SIMPLISTIC interface, the description of the features in this app is not just misleading, those features don’t exist. But, because I had to pay 99 cents to actually access the features in this “free” app (which by itself is dishonest), I had know way of knowing beforehand. I am usually very careful about downloading apps without some hint of their reputation, but this app’s creator got me this time. Congratulations!
You have to pay for color change?!
by Michelle 「Ace Family Member」 on 2019/10/14 15:02
The only thing this app does is allow you to choose what you want black n white and the original color. The rest like change the color of a dress from white to red, you have to pay for. disappointing
Incredibly aggressive adverts
by koobifora on 2019/10/12 15:53
The advert nagging is so extreme, this app is barely useable. Don’t bother downloading this aggressive mess.
Terrible

Garbage App
by Wootdude88V on 2019/10/09 12:40
Terrible UI. Closes the program when I try to save to my photo library. Should be free. I had to pay for this 3rd world communist garbage app. Do not download this.

Great for Recoloring or Decolorimg Pictures
by Cat*Butt on 2019/09/30 21:52
Ads aside and the watermark too this is an app I’ve had and used sporadically for years now. I really do like it and have recommended it to others. Give it a try you’ll like it.
No recolor unless you pay $.99-
by Chooch440 on 2019/09/30 19:35
This is not a free app if you want to recolor a photo. False advertising!!
Won’t save image
by Silver kitty 2 on 2019/09/23 04:53
I have the iPhone 11 pro max on iOS 13. I try to save the image to my photo library and the app bugs out and takes me to my home screen. It doesn’t close the app but when I try again it just takes me to my iphones home screen not saving the image

Was working, now not
by KanKapp on 2019/09/19 12:03
I’ve had this app for quite some time. I even paid to remove ads and have extra features. It was a fantastic way to add some great color effects and really make pictures pop. The app wasn’t working (not loading my pictures. Unable to edit.) just a black screen. I deleted the app and redownloaded and now my ads are back with no way to restore purchases and it’s still not working. Now I have to find a new color effect app. Hopefully one some one will update regularly. (App support lead me to a site w no help)
Crashes When Saving
by TDRock on 2019/09/17 17:36
So that’s not great. I have to email finished images to myself to make sure I get them. Otherwise the app does work.
AWFUL APPLICATION!!
by Wifi Manager on 2019/09/13 02:28
Basically painting over the picture... False advertising... when talking the picture it comes in gray which is a built in feature within iPhone... DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!
Recolor Feature Costs Money

The only feature I wanted this app for actually is not free.
Ruined...
by Chrissy1003 on 2019/08/24 12:52
This app used it be good. Now every other time you touch it you can’t do anything without getting an ad. Great way to lose your fans! Now I’ll go and pay for a competitive app that didn’t decide to be obnoxious about it.
Used to work
by Snarfbug on 2019/08/20 04:12
I get my image colored the way I want it, save to photo library, and it crashes every.single.time. Fix your app.
App isn’t working
by CJL4603 on 2019/08/18 15:22
I love Color Effects, but the app stopped working altogether. Can’t find a way to contact app support. 🙁
Very Upset
by Kitten Mew Mew on 2019/08/16 18:42
These apps need to be reworked severely. I have been looking for apps that recolor photos and you ALWAYS have to buy that feature! Why would I get a recoloring app if all I wanted to do was grey out certain parts!! I digress, it is only 99 cents but if youre looking for a quick recolor app, this aint it. Do not recommend
You have to pay to change the color
by KWW12 on 2019/08/09 22:13
If you want to change the color of your image it’s 99 cents.
Lots of ads
by Jkensuke on 2019/08/07 01:32
So I'm sure this is a great app but good good the ads are very agressive and bad launching app store games and YouTube videos in the first three clicks.
Can’t save pics to my phone.
by Napdelo on 2019/08/02 15:43
I like it but it won’t let me save pics to my phone. Just crashes. Really annoying. I see others have the same issue. Fix this and I’ll change my rating to 5 stars
Waste
by crpate86 on 2019/07/30 17:23
Absolutely dumb. No better or different than any other app out there. Why even have a free version of the free version doesn’t allow you to do what the main purpose of the app is. What a Waite of time.
Cannot get any functions to work
by Tylermerckx on 2019/07/28 18:37
Nothing works and an ad pops up every third click. I am experienced with photo apps this thing is not usable do not download
Used to be good...
by Jellyfish1980 on 2019/07/25 16:00
I used this App a few years ago and it worked great, now whenever I attempt to save the image to my pictures it closes and nothing is saved. I’ll delete this app again. Pitty.
Didn’t work
by Lysaao on 2019/07/24 20:27
Didn’t work, was not able to choose any colors to edit the photo with. Could not crop photo very well with the crop tool.
Keeps crashing
by Degopwn12 on 2019/07/16 13:23
First to use recolor you have to pay for it. Then when you try to save the image it just crashes. So worthless.
Ok, recolor feature not free, won’t save to album
by gilbertsgrapes on 2019/07/12 00:12
App blanks out (not an actual crash) when attempting to save project to photo album. I could only save by emailing the project to myself (.png format). Can’t input color value for true color match, which would be a great feature. Recolor easy to use; I recommend using a stylus for greater precision. Toggling between gray, recolor, and original color brush, especially to correct any mishaps is easy; the “recently used” color palette is nice.
Love. This. App.

You can’t do anything w/o paying for it. It’s not free at all.

Crashes
by wtfwhyyy on 2019/06/19 15:36
Crashes when I try to save to to my photo album on my phone. Everything else works ok. To get a pic on my phone, i have to save it to Dropbox, open it in MS Paint, convert it to a jpeg or png then put it back in my Dropbox then save it to my photo album. Cant believe I wasted my money on this.

Looks promising but...
by NightLord Raven on 2019/06/17 04:31
The app looks great and is pretty easy to use... other than of course having to pay for recoloring and to remove ads. I wouldn’t mind the adds to use the recoloring but having to pay to use that and get rid of ads I don’t mind seem a bit... redundant. Even more so that I could get a simple app like this for a computer cost free and able to use all the features it offers. So if the devs of this ever see this review then please get rid of the pay wall and instead make it optional. The app overall shows a lot of promise for mobile users who don’t have access to a computer and still try to do some sort of quality recolor.
Does nothing

Zero feature = zero star review
by Sa Lay on 2019/06/15 02:40
This “free” app does not given you the most basic feature, ie to use a specific color on a photo, unless you paid for it. Don’t bother to download or install. It’s a waste of time.

The quality of the saving picture is too low .... PNG format , Appropriately 130 KB There is not any tools for Automated color selection, every thing is manually.... Error to save photo, you should email the photo to be able to save it.

Upgrade isn’t fully functioning
by AllAboutDogs on 2019/05/11 09:40
I first tried the free Color Effects app, I wanted the option to add color, so I almost immediately upgraded to the purchased version. Disappointingly, I’m not able to see much difference, if any at all, I can’t do anything with the color after I choose it. After selecting the color, there is no way to go back to the photo. If I do use the BACK button to return to my photo, either the image isn’t there and there’s only a blank gray screen, or the coloring function isn’t working when the photo is tapped or touched. I tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but it’s making me buy it again. I’m at a loss...

I would like to have tried out your app however I am on able to use it because it’s telling me to use the side button to purchase it. I tried and tried and tried and nothing happens.
Update
by ThatJakeJohnson on 2019/04/30 22:47
I got used to it quick I paid .99 cents for the upgrade. Great price but now I can’t save the photo. It sends me to the home screen so I have to screen shot it and crop it by myself. It’s just a pain
Won’t save
by more options needed on 2019/04/26 03:11
Paid for the upgrade in app and after spending a long time on a photo it just crashes when I try to save it. Complete waste of time and money 🤬
Not worth your time!
by WrongWayWally on 2019/04/23 10:46
When I first downloaded this app it was wonderful. Now you can’t get past the ads and if you can youlll find nothing you saved is there! Very disappointed!
App is a Scam!
by jkeitz on 2019/04/21 21:53
I tried this app, and to recolor a photo you have to pay, so I paid. Now I can color all over a photo, you know, just like you can do in the stock photo app 🤬. It is supposed to look like the actual object is recolored, but it really just looks like you scribbled over your photo with a colored sharpie.
Doesn’t recolor dark colors
by Melovecacadoo54 on 2019/04/18 02:53
App required upgrade to Pro to recolor, and then would not recolor black or other dark colors.
Bad.
by haleyjane13 on 2019/04/15 20:12
This app is sketchy and cheap. You can’t do anything with it even though it is advertised as free. Just nah. hard pass. Don’t waste your time.
Used to be a great app
by R6Rider on 2019/04/09 15:58
Now I can’t even get into this app and I paid for add free a long time ago, this app is now useless.
Don’t Download!
by Finketim on 2019/04/04 22:01
App is so terrible. Yes, the app is free but when you download it it doesn’t let you do anything. It’s a waste of your time unless you want to pay. There are tons of better apps for recoloring things that are free.
Don't uninstall the app, update your phone instead
by JNodine on 2019/04/04 19:53
I really liked this app until I tried to save my finished image to my photos. It said it saved, but it wasn't there when I opened photos. I came here to the reviews and noticed a lit of other people had the same issue. Then I checked my phone to see if I missed an update, and I had. After I downloaded and ran the latest iPhone update, I opened this app again and saved my work to photos without any problem.
Bad quality
by helpful19 on 2019/03/25 20:54
Very hard to use. No support past the first “tutorial”. No website to ask questions. Photos didn’t color effect. Wish I could get a refund but customer support leads you to a advertisement for another app.

Too many ads and prompts to buy full version
by Hautfirechic on 2019/03/03 05:03
In the less than five minutes I spent trying this app out, I was attacked by ads for unrelated content and multiple prompts to buy the full version. I’m not opposed to SOME ads popping up on free versions, but this was ridiculous. I’ll be uninstalling this immediately. Congrats! Ten minutes for me to install and then uninstall an app is a record for me. Usually, it takes me days to determine I hate an app.
Won’t save photos to iPhone photo library
by TCat39 on 2019/02/23 03:54
App works OK but when I edit a picture and select “save to library”, the app crashes.
Why?
by Dukruse on 2019/02/16 17:56
I was super exited, but when I found out you had to pay to change the colors I got mad. All you get for free is to make the photos gray. A regular iPhone can do that. In the end very disappointed in the money hungry developers, there is already enough ads. Why do they need the extra 1 dollar.

I have to pay again??
by Llama sama on 2019/02/04 23:55
Hey, I downloaded app and have been using it for maybe almost a year now. I purchased the “pro” version to let me actually recollection things back then, too. However, I started having problems with the app today: it wouldn’t let me save any of my work to my photos. So I uninstalled it and went to redownload it... lo and behold, it says I have to pay yet again to access the “pro” version that I’ve had for almost a year. Why? Is there anyway I can just have access to the recolor option again since I’ve already paid?? The reason for the rating is because it’s asking me to pay again for a feature I should still have access to, not allowing me to download my work into my album, and I honestly haven’t been entirely happy with the color wheel provided for recoloring; however, this app is the best I can do at the moment and wish to continue using it. Please help me out here so I can keep recoloring photos.
Won’t save
by Chonching14 on 2019/02/04 23:15
It’s a good app and I also got the upgrade by paying the extra $.99. But when I go to save it... it just goes exits out of the app and doesn’t save the photo. Basically not point of having this app if I can’t save it.
Nothing in life is free apparently
by Nicaxis on 2019/02/01 01:12
Don’t advertise an app for free if you can do absolutely nothing with the free version of the app. Just start with advertising the app and the actual cost. Straightforward is best.

Heck no

You can’t do s!!t with this app. Too bad there’s not a zero star rating because this piece of garbage app deserves it. If you download the you are a communist Hillary Clinton supporter.
Cannot actually save the projects. Buggy mess.
by Brickedbox on 2019/01/21 05:33
I paid the $.99 to use the recolor and ditch the ads, only to find out I cannot save anything to my album without the app crashing. What is the point, if I cannot export a project? Trash. Going back to adobe.
Don’t Download
by shadowkast66 on 2019/01/17 06:23
This app is pointless, it turns your picture to black and white. If you want to do anything else, you have to pay. The “Free” app is a joke.
Great app, but...
by Muyenga430 on 2017/07/23 06:39
I would love to see one change. I would really like to save a color permanently. I use the app to "hand color" photos, and had recently worked very hard to get just the right skin tone, but in the process of doing the rest of the photo that skin tone was lost. PLEASE - give us a way to save a color permanently!
Very Cool
by Djdaniel0717 on 2016/11/18 13:38
We recently had family photos done by a professional photographer. My wife had already picked out matching clothes that would go with mine and my sons outfit. I had a red plaid shirt, he wore a red shirt with navy stripes, and my wife wore a navy shirt to tie it all in. Well, the photos turned out great but my wife was a little bummed that she had failed to add any red in her outfit as the blue color in the plaid shirt I had on showed up more than we expected due to the background. Using "color effects" I altered the color of her shirt from blue to red in about 10 minutes! Once I had the color right, I went back and added the original color to everything else. My only suggestion would be to maybe have an option to grey out a selected area only to so that only that portion of the photo gets changed. This would prevent having to add the original color back to the full photo once the color change is successful. It worked perfect the way it is for this picture specifically but I think that an option like that would benefit in other situations. Regardless, thanks to this app, we now have our perfect Christmas card! I would highly recommend and It does exactly what it describes. Watch the video tutorial and you'll enjoy it quicker with out having to learn it the layout. The video is only about 5 minutes or so and the narrators voice is very monotone, but it did help!

Pretty good
by Scan95 on 2017/12/09 20:50
Changing the color was pretty easy. Two items keep this from being 5 Star. 1. Doesn’t allow the user to start from the original photo. Changes it to black/white then the user must add back in the color. So if you just want to change a very small portion (maybe a shirt color in Family photo) you have to start with the entire photo. 2. Least desired attribute is the exported photo, once finished, looks blurry. Has the characteristics of a photo that has been highly compressed for export. If you are just looking to change something for Facebook ... probably not an issue. If you want to print the final photo, this app probably not the right one.
Paid, crash, reinstall, pay again?
by JuJuIzBac on 2018/07/17 16:23
I just paid the .99 upgrade then all of a sudden I was charged $1.05. No big deal. Got to play with the app and when try to save the pic on my phone it just crashes and apps turns off. Did this several times so I uninstalled it and reinstalled it. Now it’s asking me to pay once again to upgrade! I event have the proof of purchase in my email. Update: I finally got my account back. Didn’t do anything cause I was gonna just get a different app but it still crashes when I try to save the picture to my phone. I have to email it to myself and get it from there. What a hassle. Still looking for different apps if this still keeps up.
Change it back.
by Jane_Ang on 2016/06/25 00:49
So a long time ago I got this app and loved it to death. It was free, worked really well, and was really fun. My iPad crashed and I had to restore the whole thing. I come back to fund that the once free app that I used regularly has been replaced by a paid app. Now this wouldn't be so bad if it was charged up front or if it was pay to get the apps removed. No ladies and gentlemen. To recolonize at all you have to pay a dollar. To recolor like I use to I now have to pay money? I loved this app so much but it became cheap and slick. Do not download if you expect a free app where you recolor. It's false advertising. If it was changed to just if you don't want adds you pay this would be fine, but this has changed it fully. Thank you for ruining my day.
AMAZING
by Diana Chow on 2017/06/05 00:55
i used this to help me pick the color for a pair of sunglasses i was painting over as a DIY project. this app made all the difference and helped me pick the optimal color since i was able to see what the frames would look like with the colored lenses that were already on it. so much easier than me attempting to do the same in Photoshop. THANK YOU! it took me a couple minutes to figure out on my own. the conversion to grayscale right off the bat threw me off a bit, it'd be nice if that was an option you could disable.
Works Perfectly
by tampico-chan on 2016/06/22 20:08
I love this app. I've had it for years. I love to recolor pics, especially eyes. The zoom is great, it has a full color pallet along with memorizing past colors you have used, and the auto correct is amazing for the small spots. Really the only annoying thing is that the ads are all "minigames" which makes my device run slower. But ads is how the free version is paid for, you wait a few seconds and can click to "X" out, and then you are back to your project. Thanks!

Awesome App and Easy to Use
by iReviewer_IOS_Games~ on 2016/09/06 21:08
I've seen around that people are talking smack about this app beinng horrible and you have to pay for stuff, but I haven't had any problems with it. Recolor is very easy to use with simple tools to get the look you want. I've been using this app for years now and it's been wonderful. The only thing that's been weird is that when I put in a photo is comes out kinda fuzzy. So maybe they could fix the fuzziness. Otherwise, excellent app. (I love the glow one too!!) :D
Some issues
by The-One-Who-Likes-To-Draw on 2017/05/03 03:08
I use this app mainly to recolor the background of a picture. At first this worked out perfectly for me and everything was fine. But recently I have been having some problems. Whenever I try to recolor the background of a picture, it instead Is a pale color far off from what I had intended. For example, say I have a bowl of fruit with a yellow background and I want to change only the background to dark blue. If I color the entire picture, the fruit shows up dark blue, but the background is a pale light blue/purple color. Is there anyway I can fix this?
DO NOT DOWNLOAD

App is horrible! Once you download it does not allow you to do anything. You have to purchase the features. Once I downloaded and uploaded one of my pictures to work on the app wanted my finger scan which is used to purchase from the App Store. Very slick. If you are going to charge for the app just charge for it up front. Don't let me waste my time and storage space if your marketing something that is not actually a free app. If your looking for a app like this I suggest looking for a similar app somewhere else. The one feature that you can use is to bring back color which is on the original picture. And even that is not all that great, I've used better.
It's been better

I have used this app a couple of years ago, and fell in love with it, I got a new phone and only just now re downloaded it to quickly do a picture with it. Right away unnoticed a difference, before when I used the recolor option, it was free, and amazing, now that I have re downloaded it, I have to pay .99$ to get that option and remove the adds. I'm not sure why that is, not that .99$ is a big amount or anything, but comparing to before when it was free I don't like that much. But it's still a great app to use.
Looks promising but...
by NightLord Raven on 2019/06/17 04:31
The app looks great and is pretty easy to use... other than of course having to pay for recoloring and to remove ads. I wouldn’t mind the adds to use the recoloring but having to pay to use that and get rid of ads I don’t mind seem a bit... redundant. Even more so that I could get a simple app like this for a computer cost free and able to use all the features it offers. So if the devs of this ever see this review then please get rid of the pay wall and instead make it optional. The app overall shows a lot of promise for mobile users who don’t have access to a computer and still try to do some sort of quality recolor.
Upgrade isn’t fully functioning
by AllAboutDogs on 2019/05/11 09:40
I first tried the free Color Effects app, I wanted the option to add color, so I almost immediately upgraded to the purchased version. Disappointingly, I’m not able to see much difference, if any at all, I can’t do anything with the color after I choose it. After selecting the color, there is no way to go back to the photo. If I do use the BACK button to return to my photo, either the image isn’t there and there’s only a blank gray screen, or the coloring function isn’t working when the photo is tapped or touched. I tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but it’s making me buy it again. I’m at a loss...
Someone else said not to down load, I double that
by Fototico on 2016/06/22 08:03
This app is junk full of ads. And I am talking full screen ads with videos. I refuse to pay for a full version for an app such as this. Full screen ads make the developers look desperate and beggars. It also makes the app look cheap. I am deleting this app. It also has water marks and it seems that it won't go away unless you rate this lousy app five stars. It only shows how pathetic the developers are. How can they watermark a picture that they have no legal rights to? It seeks to be to be a scam app by scam artists. I wonder if Apple knows about this? Don't waste your time, not worth your time and much less your money.
Amazing

I've had this app for a long time, and I've got to say, it's one of my favorites. The controls are easy to use, and the possibilities are endless. However recently I just got it on my iPad and found that you had to pay for recoloring, but the recent update fixed it and made it free again. I'm giving this app five stars not just because they added recoloring again, but because this is overall a great app.
0 star. A scam
by jamiemurphy10 on 2019/12/08 00:29
This app doesn’t do anything. If you’re looking to recolor your picture, DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP. It’s a free download but you can’t do any recoloring unless you accept the in-app purchases prompted. So I did. But the function still doesn’t work. Once again, IT DOESN’T ALLOW FOR RECOLORING OF YOUR PICTURE that we are looking for when we decide to download this app (only turned grey/ monochromatic color). Oh and one more thing, the app interface is horrible, even such basic underperforming features were made confusing to use. Requested for refund because the app literally doesn’t perform its functions as advertised but got denied. -10 star if I can give that.
Great😐
by Audzzzzz the awesome on 2016/05/12 02:51
It is ok I would not get this app unless you are going to get the pro because the pro has a feature that you can change the color of the picture but the normal one does not do that so get the pro of anything. The problem is with my normal on me o have no idea how to do anything and how it does not explain that or even what to do for mine it is stupid unless you get the pro so get the pro one.
Terrible!
by fconverse on 2019/10/14 15:03
It’s hard to believe that ANY of these positive reviews were written by any objective person. Unless there is some hidden tutorial or instructions to explain how to use what appears to be a simple, or perhaps more accurately, a SIMPLISTIC interface, the description of the features in this app is not just misleading, those features don’t exist. But, because I had to pay 99 cents to actually access the features in this “free” app (which by itself is dishonest), I had know way of knowing beforehand. I am usually very careful about downloading apps without some hint of their reputation, but this app’s creator got me this time. Congratulations!
PURE AMAZINGNESS
by Kittyluv1234 on 2016/05/15 00:18
This app is great. You can make the important parts of your picture pop with color while the background or unwanted parts are gray. I love editing photos and this one really helped with edits. It allows you to change the brush size and opacity when coloring. There are so many wonderful things about this app, sure you have to pay to change the natural color but it's totally worth it!
So far so great!
by Remmik_ on 2017/04/05 18:26
I have only used this app twice but it's very intuitive and simple to get the hang of it. I already had a cheap stylus used to navigate around on your phone or tablet but I never saw much use for it till now. Works much better with a small point stylus. I admit I'm going through the trouble of rating this since it's a free way to remove the watermarks but it's an honest review.
It's not free. That was a trick!
by TJR 600 on 2016/07/30 04:02
I am sort of being forced to review this before I've had a chance to really use it. I downloaded the app because it was free. I started using it and was interrupted when I tried to recolor my photograph. I was asked to pay. I set up my credit card to buy the app for a dollar and then was asked to leave a review if I wanted to have the app with no ads. They wanted to review at this point so here it is. I have no idea whether I paid for the app yet and what it will do when I start using it. All I can say is the recolors Asian works well.
Best recoiled app EVER
by Buffalo Wing Man on 2017/01/17 22:51
And no I'm not just writing what your reading right now to remove watermarks but I am writing this to inform purchasers be fore purchasing that this app is amazing. You can recolor anything. The first one I did was a Nissan GT-R and it's so good I made it my wallpaper. It's amazing. One improvent I wish was on the app right now is if you could keep the pic grey but let's say a wall is blue then you could make it red on here. Good app :)
Terrible
by AwesomeAqua on 2016/08/01 11:06
Don't get this app. I had it a few months ago and it worked wonderfully, and I could recolor any picture. Besides the full page ads and the fact that it took down the quality of the pictures it was more or less a good app. I redownloaded it a few days ago and now you need to pay to recolor anything, and the app still has ads absolutely everywhere. I was very disappointed and deleted immediately. Save yourself time and don't get this, Facetune costs 2.99 I believe but it has everything this app has and more and is worth the money. Hope this helped.
NOT FREE!!!
by Paskull16 on 2016/05/29 07:16
The performance is pretty good to me but it does cost money. But if you're willing to pay the money this is a good app. Also it has a watermark that you can't remove unless you rate the app 5 stars. I bought it on my phone last year and it didn't have the watermark but when I got it on my iPad it was there. It's easy to crop out though.
Was working, now not
by KanKapp on 2019/09/19 12:03
I’ve had this app for quite some time. I even paid to remove ads and have extra features. It was a fantastic way to add some great color effects and really make pictures pop. The app wasn’t working (not loading my pictures. Unable to edit.) just a black screen. I deleted the app and redownloaded and now my ads are back with no way to restore purchases and it’s still not working. Now I have to find a new color effect app. Hopefully one some one will update regularly. (App support lead me to a site w no help)
Wish their was more color options
by inChrist25 on 2019/01/03 21:09
Would be nice to have more different types of colors like chrome colors and neon colors and other types of color shades. And wish the image save to photo library would work every time I go to save a picture I color it freezes then exits out of the app?
Great App!
by Penelope'sMom2017 on 2017/06/21 07:12
When I discovered this new trend of graying out a photo and recoloring, I knew I wanted to try it out on my newborn's photos. But not every app is as easy as you would think. This one is amazing! It's super easy and my photos come out with such great quality- ready to print! Highly recommend. Even for beginners such as myself.
It told me to do this but 😄
by Honesty for the Best on 2017/03/23 19:58
This is a cool app!! I love editing photos and this makes it wayyyy cooler. Sometimes it's hard to color EXACTLY where you want the color to be when you don't have a stylist pen but it works out in the end! This is perfect if you have a theme on Instagram and you don't want every single thing to be one filter. Recomended
Nolongeraspleased
by hiddenobjectsfanatic on 2016/12/24 18:39
Have had this app for several years. i have another splash app, as well--but, what this goes beyond, is to allow you to change or add additional color of your choice. However, since a recent update, you felt the need to frame my work with your badge. i do not care for this!; plus it covers a bottom portion of my photo. i am left having to crop it out, losing a piece of my work
Does not work as it claims
by acharlie212 on 2017/06/23 21:10
Does not crop objects only zooms in and out. Does not work on black or very dark colors. Does not return the picture to the real original color ex. greens return to blue. Tried to contact the developer without any luck - received a message "safari cannot find the server" However, the app had no problem asking and collecting more money from me before starting the project. Disappointed, I would really like this app to work. I would like the developer to contact me and see if this can be fixed.
Ok, recolor feature not free, won’t save to album
by gilbertsgrapes on 2019/07/12 00:12
App blanks out (not an actual crash) when attempting to save project to photo album. I could only save by emailing the project to myself (.png format). Can’t input color value for true color match, which would be a great feature. Recolor easy to use; I recommend using a stylus for greater precision. Toggling between gray, recolor, and original color brush, especially to correct any mishaps is easy; the “recently used” color palette is nice.
Great simple app w/ a fun punch
by Dr.WinMac on 2017/02/26 09:35
I've been using Color Effects for a year or so and I this this is a solid & fun app. It gives a surprising amount of control over coloring effects on pics. Has live camera and library options for importing...plus zoom, brush sizing and walk thru tutorials. 5-stars all the way!!!
Not a free app. Change it back.
by Umbreonlover95 on 2016/09/19 23:10
I used to love this app and would've given it five stars until recently. I had this app for about two years and had to delete it because of storage space. Upon redownloading it this week, I tried to color with it, only to be told I had to buy the pro version. Don't buy this app if you don't want to pay for it. Don't sell an app as free and then charge your consumers in order to get money out of it. Otherwise this is false advertising. I'd give it zero stars if I could.
Was a nice app back in the day..
by DeadFrogDave on 2017/04/14 10:10
Been using this app for years now, and it was great! Hadn't used it for a while and just did this dope pic for my wife but when I went back to view in album, it has a watermark at the bottom! I HATE APPS that was free and now u have to pay to use what u already had!!!!!! We helped u become popular. U charge the new ppl not the ones who was faithful and recommended your product to ppl. Bet I won't recommend again. I'll find another app like this! It's not that hard! Way to crap on your fans.
Worth getting
by Lava glacier on 2017/01/24 08:01
Free, but then you pay a small fee to remove the watermark and unlock certain features. I don't have a problem with that. Just keep improving the app! It's fun to tinker with, use, and the results can be as fine or rushed as you want the to. Great way to add some interest to your photos! ** Improvements A) a target point where the pencil/brush tip is represented by a dot or similar B) An option to allow the pencil/brush to be held at a target point above your finger so that you can see where your pencil/brush tip is. This would be fantastic for tight areas requiring intense detail changes
Love it!
by KitsuneSama on 2017/12/31 06:10
I love using this to make my photos even more unique. It's easy to use, very straightforward. I haven't found an app as good or trustworthy as this one, and always come back to it. Just tonight, I bought the app for the purpose of recoloring some of my older photos. It was totally worth it.
Consistently good
by Geo-genius on 2017/03/08 20:12
I've used this app for years and haven't found a better one for this purpose. The only improvement I'd like to see is and easier to use zoom setting. It's too simple to accidentally recolor the image when zooming. Otherwise, it's great!
Bait and switch
by SYS CRMC on 2016/05/13 03:40
I downloaded the app because I liked the photo editing features, reviews were positive, and it was free. However, once I tried to use it, I was unable to do ANY editing until I bought the upgrade. Since it was 99c I went ahead with the purchase. Now that I've used the app and had time to think about it, I should have removed the app. I rewarded unethical behavior since free does not mean "only if the buyer is held hostage by the app until s/he forks over money." I wish I knew how to report this.
Nice for business
by AnW2010 on 2016/08/26 15:51
I hand paint wedding Converse for my business, and have been searching for an app that will help me with making colors pop in photos. This app has worked wonderfully! Easy to use, and I really liked the easy to understand tutorial!
Almost forgot I had this!
by JRB344Boll on 2016/06/07 04:02
I used this briefly a while back and enjoyed it. I almost forgot about it until my kid opened it. I forgot how much fun it is to use and how easy. I've had other similar apps and this is by far the most accurate and easy to use!
Takes your money then stops working.
by BigWheelsTurnin on 2018/08/18 12:46
You can’t re-color photos without the in-app purchase to activate the feature which is fine for only 99 cents, but then it stops loading photos and you just get s grey screen when you try to load a new photo. I deleted and re-downloaded which allowed me to load new photos to edit but then it didn’t remember that I purchased the upgrade. So I waisted a dollar and never could use the app to re-color photos.
Awesome
by lschimonitz on 2016/07/04 12:22
I've had the ap for quite awhile. It does exactly what it says it will.. I wish I had just a bit more control; that's most likely my user error. I've done some fun recoloring and gotten great feedback! It's my go to when I want to make a picture pop!
Great App.
by MarieGoble on 2016/06/24 20:26
This app is the best at making things POP out! I've been using this app all day long. I've been editing pictures and sending them to my friends and the love them. This app works great. I recommend it for anyone that needs to edit a pic like this app does.
Made me do this?
by Phouse81 on 2016/11/04 18:41
I don't know what the exact incentive is to give 5 stars but it appears that I have been told to do so if I want to be able to import my image. Great app. Potential though if you wanna get the "full" version. This version should be called "Grey Effects"
Love it
by Dances4thelord on 2016/05/29 16:22
This app is great and helps me be able to select certain colors to pull out of the picture and make you look so much more unique is very awesome and I keep using it for about everything right now with a few pictures.
Great for the quick effect
by AdrianneSurian on 2016/05/24 13:34
I do a lot of photo editing on my computer and this is a nice app for recoloring on the fly. Once you get the hang of navigating I can color pop in under a minute which is a feature I happen to use a lot. I don't need heavy editing.
The free version works fine
by Lolalolalala on 2016/11/16 11:16
It's works perfectly fine for a free app. The ads are annoying, I wish they're weren't as many but what's else is new. I like that it has a soft focus option for the brush. The watermark was a turn off for me, but they trade a review for a watermark free app.
