Description
A fun and free photo editing tool to add retro effects and transform photos into cool vintage images.
Professional at best!
by Ashlinloe7 on 2020/03/18 22:14
I use this app every single week , several times a week for my djing ads and bar and Resturante ads! I love the button top left that random filters your pic- takes seconds and if you don’t like click again and again! Hands down the bestphoto app ever! Been using for years and years! Take a filter pic you like then re enter the filtered pic back into the app- save re enter over and over until you have the perfect pic!
Regarding complaints
by figatcave182 on 2020/03/16 02:38
I’ve seen some recent reviews for this app that talk about how i crashes very often. This app hasn’t been updated in two years. They made a new version called Pixlr which works much better and is frequently updated.
Formerly great, now abandoned.
by mypaperstuff on 2020/03/07 14:53
Freezes when you save a photo. Would it be that hard to fix it? Sheesh! Avoid.
No update for 2 years
by DJBSFO on 2020/01/06 04:07
Doesn’t work anymore
Awesome App
by mejae12 on 2019/12/06 01:18
Love Love Love this app ive used it for about 6 yrs now . I just decided Id if they had the iphone version.
It crashes
by izzyrocksout on 2019/10/31 03:59
First time I used it and tried to save the image the screen froze and I had to close out the app. There is no user interface to speak of. No sliders, just take the preset as it is given to you. Very few buttons and I couldn’t see that they did much of anything. Don’t bother downloading. Also notice it has been two years since they did a bug fix.
GO-TO photo editing app—when it works
by Jdhvd on 2019/09/29 16:10
This app breaks just about ever other iPhone update. It’s beginning to be more frustrating than it’s worth. I know it’s difficult for companies to keep up with phone manufacturer updates, but come on! Right now, to edit a single photo, I have to close the app and reopen it after every (editing) action that I take, and then once I save it to my phone, I have to reboot my phone in order to clear the app to be able to edit the next photo. I rely on my photo editing apps for my business. Customers should not have to endure such clunkiness—especially when they pay for something. This is the third time in recent memory, that this app has quit functioning. I am about ready to give up on it and find something more stable to rely on. Great app—the developers are on point, in creating an easy, user friendly app—which is why I don’t understand why they are so lazy with regards to updates. They are obviously intelligent enough to keep it running. I suppose once they have your money, they already have you, and they don’t have to work as hard. Try it out, it’s a good app, but think twice before you begin relying on it or paying for it.
Very very good
by Otman Rebel on 2019/08/13 21:06
Please Update the app for more
Underrated!
by ctrubac on 2019/07/10 11:15
The filters and flare effects on this app are very fun to use.
Needs updating
by Tortorswaggasaur on 2019/03/09 02:23
Ever since I got a new iPhone it doesn’t work right hand the quality when I try to save anything is crappy.
Great app
by Eviscool on 2018/11/09 13:47
I absolutely love this app easy to use and makes great photos
I can’t believe it’s free
by JohnBoy5562 on 2018/04/12 06:09
I just downloaded this app because I wanted to take photos and make them look like old polaroid pictures and this one does it and the best part is it’s free. The only thing that would make this app better would be to be able to add text. Like when you used to wright the time and date at the bottom of the polaroid pictures. Also look in the settings their is even more goodies like even more theme and effects to download for free. Thanks so much for a great photography app!

Best app since iPhone1
by akitagirl216 on 2017/07/16 20:37
Bought this with my first iTunes card and been downloading religiously since per phone. Best pic app EVER. when i say ever i mean E VE R since before this rating system existed!
Really Good App
by DME_Ski on 2017/06/04 15:31
I just started using this App after using the developer's Pixlr App for many years on all my phones and computers. Pilxromatic is kinda like the "unorganized version" of Pixlr, but I think it depends upon how you like your Apps set up. I'm more prone to use Pixlr, but this is good for a quick edit as it does list your favorites at the beginning of each selection.
Awesome Filters!
by Butts--7 on 2017/05/03 06:33
I've been using this app since my old iPhone 4. It's still one of my go-to photo apps :)
I though some of you would appreciate this, I got it in the help area
by Roxannefw on 2016/12/07 19:46
If you find yourself hunting for an overlay, border, or sticker pack in Pixlr for Mobile or Desktop that you used to have access to, check to see if you are signed in as an Essentials or Pro member. Some premium packs are available only for Essentials and Pro members, including a few of these fan favorites:
my favorite

Awful app
by Twilliams12 on 2015/09/30 18:15
Just doesn't work! App crashes every 5 seconds!
Crashes not intuitive

Ads every second Very disappointing Save your time, don't download
Bad!!!
by Malloware on 2015/07/23 21:59
Very very little User control. Very very difficult to navigate. Screens open up with no explanation or prompts. The app really destroyed my images. I have many photo editing apps. This one is the lamest I have ever tried. This should not be in the Apple App Store. Apple, do some quality control please!!!!!

Where are extra downloadable effects?
by Isabel Batteria on 2015/07/20 00:24
It's not a matter of re-downloading them, which I gladly do every time I restore my iPhone. It's that there is no way in the app to download them anymore. This was my first go-to app. Now it's of no use.
I Paid For Filters! Where Are They???
by Mz Timah on 2015/07/19 18:15
I have loved this app since I first had it but where are all the filters I paid for and loved. This was the only app I used to edit my photos. What happened? Where are my filters? Is there an update coming? Am I being refunded?
So upset.
by Your Ex-Best Friend on 2015/06/04 02:33
This was formerly my go-to app for photo editing because of all the fun filters and effects. The most recent update took away a solid 75% of these filters and effects, many which I had paid for. So disappointed...I wish I hadn't updated.
Okay...serious time now
by Screwthisnicknamecrap on 2015/05/29 20:29
Why do the filters go Fred, Greg, Hagrid, Harry? Why is it not George? Why waste this perfect opportunity? (Other than that, I like this app. I forgot I downloaded it ages it ago and haven't used it in a couple of years and started using it again.)
Disappointed
by allureofbrazil on 2015/04/19 04:33
What happen to the app? All me filters are gone... I pay for all the filter and effects and now what??? PleaSe this app must to go back to the same before... Very disappointed
POINTLESSLY REQUIRES iOS 7.1!!
by nickjuly4 on 2015/02/28 22:44
This app pointlessly requires iOS 7 because the app developer is too lazy to support iOS 6!
Been using this for years
by JMANTN on 2015/02/26 04:02
Only downside is sometimes the output quality isn't as high as what u started out with. It degrades the image quality/resolution. Also need ability to adjust each effect...more and more apps now offer adjusting filter strength and placement for things such as flares, leaks, etc...
Great app!
by Ccristinuza on 2015/02/16 19:23
An app with a lot of effects and cool add-on to your photos !!!
No crop adjustment?
by MoonSmiles on 2015/02/15 02:51
If I select the cropping icon, the sides get chopped off to make the image square. That's it. No way that I can see to adjust the cropping to the portion that I want to save. Sad. Bye. :(
Great before update
by B*dub* on 2014/11/20 02:00
New layout seems too basic. Miss the creative look of the app.
Love using this app
by HallmanLady on 2014/11/09 04:48
I've had this app for a long time. Recently there was an update and the very things I paid have been chopped into less attractive subcategories without asking. It seems a bit unfair that I have lost $1.99 for each section of add ons and I want them back. It's an awesome app but I feel cheated.
Adjust Overlay
by halvaa on 2014/11/08 19:04
Is there an option to adjust the overlay? Sometimes I just want a subtle difference in the pic...
The Greatest
by Kmilla-BR on 2014/11/07 11:34
Guys, you're great! This app is just awesome!!! Thank you so much for those new free effects \o. Aos brasileiros: super recomendo o download!
Absolute favorite editor!
by Daniblaze on 2014/10/29 14:15
I've been using this app for years as well and to date I haven't found a better photo editor. Better filters than all the others, better effects, etc. My go to photo editor!
Love!

Best app ever

Waste of time

Filters no good
FOUND ALL MY PURCHASED STUFF
by Vampoler on 2014/10/18 01:54
I was about to delete the app until I figured out how to get all my stuff back. When editing a pic, tap the gear symbol in the top right corner... Then you can re-download the color filters... THEN WHILE STILL THERE...tap the middle circle at the bottom and you'll be able to restore those...then tap the circle for the frames and those can be restored. It seems like they're gone if you switch to the second filter or frame section and then tap the gear, because it automatically shows you the color filter section instead of anything in the section you were actually using to edit the pic.
It is ok
by The plant man swag on 2014/10/06 17:08
It is good if you are looking for A LOT of filters but not very good for actual edit not ideal for photo journalism.
Fantastic update!
by TyzorTyler on 2014/10/05 21:32
I've used this app for years, and the most recent update adds almost all of the features I've thought to myself it needed. All my previously purchased kits are easily added again, but now I can pick and choose what items in each add on package that I want to install. Don't like a specific filter? Disable it!! The only thing missing is I'd like it to integrate directly to my Photos app with the new "other" editing feature. Five stars. Thanks, Autodesk!!
Zero Stars - Where are my effects?
by KATHARINE TRINDL on 2014/10/01 05:51
This was my absolute photo favorite app EVER, until I mistakenly updated it. I want to cry. What has happened to all the 'Xtra' effects that I paid .99 for ? I used to spend hours fooling around with this app & smiling... now I feel like I'm in photo jail. :( This used to be magical, now it's just a nightmare! #BOOHOO
Where did my filters and borders go?
by sk8artz on 2014/09/30 21:29
So I updated but now lost the majority of my filters and borders. There doesn't even seem to be a way to reload them. This is a very poor update, badly done folks. Please resolve this for your longtime suppoters or I will have to delete this app and move on. Too bad too.
All filters and packs are free!
by FindYourBlissToday on 2014/09/29 15:49
For those of you that had previously purchased filters, it looks like they are all free to download now. Just click on that little gear icon at the top right of the screen once you edit a picture.
Bring back my filters
by Chromemic on 2014/09/29 05:37
Or at least have the decency to tell us you're removing them BEFORE we upgrade. I paid to upgrade the previous version. All my filters are gone! Smash and?Grab AppStore robbery. This update is WORSE than when you saddled PAYING customers with your hideously intrusive overlay ad for the shoddy "xpress" version of the app. If you don't fix this in the next release I'm sure you'll have far fewer users.
What a delicious update.
by famisamis on 2014/09/29 04:57
From one star to five. They took the time and updated the app right along with iOS 8 and it's amazing. Smooth interface and oh so speedy. My purchased packs easily restored. This is my favorite app to add unique lighting and filter effects. And now with a fresh update, I'm happy to recommend it without reservation. Enjoy.
Love the filters
by Tantan25 on 2014/09/28 16:02
Super fun way to change your photos into unique way.
Latest update is terrible
by babyart2000 on 2014/09/28 14:05
All my PURCHASED filters have disappeared and the rearrangement of the app is unwieldy. Yesterday I would have given five stars. Today, I'm ready to delete the app. :(
Where are all my purchased filters????
by Janitzav on 2014/09/28 01:06
I updated into the new version and all the filters i had purchased are no where to be found. I feel robbed!!!
No good
by Rod "razzle dazzle" P on 2014/09/09 23:48
I've used this app for years, had ALL of the filters, all of a sudden, I have to pay to restore them? 👎 no good

Help
by No one likes fake music on 2014/05/16 02:13
This app was amazing, I used it for everything, I own a photography account on Instagram and this was the only app I used to edit my pictures. I BOUGHT it and recently had to have my phone fixed and replaced. I re-downloaded it thinking my purchase would be restored but now it's telling me I have to re-buy the app just to get the filters and photo leaker and frames. What is up with that? I know it's only 0.99 but still , why do I have to re-buy something I used everyday?
So easy to use!
by jansoucek  on 2014/05/10 18:15
I love the random filter button! Saves me a lot of time!

by misterlucky64 on 2014/04/22 01:40
really good. bought all the filters. fair price.
Won't work!!
by  CRAZYBANNA on 2014/03/25 17:59
I downloaded this app then my battery died now it won't download and it won't let me delete it either! All that it says is "Wating" and I've been waiting for almost a day!!!!!!
It's grrrrreat!
by Gre'xx on 2014/03/13 01:50
It's simple and easy to use and makes you look like your top notch photographer with even little to no experience. Must download!!
Great app
by Kevin Harvey on 2014/02/17 17:55
My favorite photo editing app. Works great, super simple and easy to use.. And Autodesk is a great company!
I Used to Love This App
by zenlikeme on 2014/02/15 18:20
But their filters are a bit heavy-handed and there isn't any way to blend or soften these effects. I wish this app had more nuance and wasn't quite so... Instagram.
 bugs!
by  Gopurple1 on 2014/02/09 17:50
The effects trip out a lot! They disappear out of nowhere!!! The app is almost useless!!!
Overall, I dig it.
by kris hays  on 2014/02/07 03:34
I really enjoy this app, but I cannot for the life of me get the in-app purchases to download! It's one of two photo apps that I use all the time. Love it, but wish I had more!
Great App !!

It works now!
by MandyKruz  on 2014/01/10 16:37
It used to crash every 5 seconds so i had to Reinstall it. If you got the upgrade you have to do it again but it won't charge you. It will ask you if you want to buy it, select yes and then it will ask you if you want to pay the $$$, select yes. After a few seconds it will say that it was already purchased. It won't charge you again! Try it! Its an awesome app!

Was great but...
by Avid User/Infuriated Customer on 2013/12/20 10:56
I had ALL the filters downloaded, and haven't used the app in a while. Well I went to use it today and suddenly all the filters are gone and I only have access to the default ones and have to pay for all the other ones. As someone who has used the app and used the editor even before it was an app I'm highly disappointed. Don't know how they can take something away from their loyal customers after we've already had it so long, it's a bunch of bs. They'll get 5 stars when I get my filters back without having to pay for all of them, as I had them ALL before and now they've taken them away and I suddenly have to pay to get them back. Was once my fave pic editing source.
I use to like it
by Sassie79 on 2013/12/14 22:08
As soon as I purchase from this app, it spits me out and will not reopen. I loved it and used it all the time.

PLEASE FIX
by Hutchweez  on 2013/12/05 03:29
I give it five stars because this is an amazing app and I use it all the time. But since the update I have not been able to save any of my pictures. Please fix it. I don't want to do the screen shot method. I won't deduct a star because of course people make mistakes but please fix soon! IG: augiegohard

Really nice app, but...
by Sammysgranny on 2013/11/30 18:28
After I bought the entire catalog, I now have to scroll through hundreds of choices! Is there a way of isolating just my favorites? This gets really tedious, and I should have made careful choices when initially selecting which to download, but didn't know then. This feature should really be addressed.
Love it
by Crmr88 on 2013/11/30 09:31
I love this app, it's simple yet has a lot of different filters and effects to choose from.
Great Effects
by EMSEETWO  on 2013/11/23 13:15
If you're looking for effects and don't need heavy photo editing this is the app for you.
Please add scale for filters
by Chella F on 2013/11/17 17:28
I love the filters and countless was to be creative with photos. I will update my review to 5 stars when effects are scalable. They are great, but effects are far too strong on many images and I wish I could tone them down.
Awesome

Lost Filters
by tm1300 on 2013/11/06 08:06
I used to use this app faithfully but once after updating or changing phones (can't remember which) I lost most of the extra filters I had purchased. So now I don't use it as much as before. Why were the purchases erased?

by izzyrocksout on 2019/10/31 03:59
First time I used it and tried to save the image the screen froze and I had to close out the app. There is no user interface to speak of. No sliders, just take the preset as it is given to you. Very few buttons and I couldn’t see that they did much of anything. Don’t bother downloading. Also notice it has been two years since they did a bug fix.
Best app since iPhone1

Awesome Filters!

I've been using this app since my old iPhone 4. It's still one of my go-to photo apps :)
Great app
by Eviscool on 2018/11/09 13:47
I absolutely love this app easy to use and makes great photos
Needs updating
by Tortorswaggasaur on 2019/03/09 02:23
Ever since I got a new iPhone it doesn’t work right hand the quality when I try to save anything is crappy.
Underrated!
by ctrubac on 2019/07/10 11:15
The filters and flare effects on this app are very fun to use.
Awesome App

Very very good

Please Update the app for more
Formerly great, now abandoned.

Freezes when you save a photo. Would it be that hard to fix it? Sheesh! Avoid.

Wow
by Cassie36 on 2012/03/16 07:16
I activated the Plus portion of the app and just Wow. This was a unique app before doing that with the names and interesting results you could get by shuffling. But, the Plus addition lets you into a whole new world of uniqueness. I have probably 200 photo camera and editing apps between the iPad and iPhone and many do not stand out from each other and have been deleted. This one just made the cut before. Now it will be a go-to app when I need something special. The additional filters are not much to speak of, but the additional papers, light leaks, and especially the frames, are different from any of the others that I have seen. I am super impressed by it. I hesitated at the $3 price of admission, but I'm so glad that I took the leap. The frames alone are worth it and I think that I'll even be pulling in edited photos just to use the frames. Like I said, I have not seen the likes of them anywhere else. Do yourself a favor and upgrade. It's soo worth it! My one complaint is minor. I wish that when a photo is vertical, the filters and such would be seen vertically. And, I really, really wish that there was landscape mode on the iPad. That one is kind of a big wish because I mostly work in landscape mode. But, overall, this app is more than worth the price of admission!
Same app as Pixelr Expess Plus
by AliciaHollywood on 2013/03/02 21:51
OK I just bumped this up from 1 star to 4... My original review is below. I broke down and re-downloaded all the same filters I had just downloaded for PixelR Express Plus because I was just having too much fun with the randomizer. I still wish the randomizer was PART of PixelR Express Plus so I don't have to go back and forth to fine tune, but for now, enjoying both apps... I don't get this app-- it has all the effects that come free with PixelR Expess Plus but it requires a download for an additional $.99... It has a lot less control over the effects, no fine tuning, and the only possible crop is a square one. The only cool thing is the randomizer. If they just added that on to the PixelR Plus app (which I will rate 5 stars, love it!), this app would be pointless. I almost considered paying the $.99 just for the randomizer but I don't want to redownload all those filters, they take up too much space on my iPad for two copies of the same thing. If they added a randomizer to PixelR plus, I'd happily pay the extra dollar just for that, rather than have two redundant space taking apps...
I never write reviews! This is my 1st. So worth my time.
by IG: ✨_feliciachristina✨ on 2013/03/12 02:52
I have tried and bought many photo editing apps. I have a lot of favorites but I always run my photos through this - it's a must have. Makes my pics stand out and has so many options and filters to choose from, so it allows maximum customization. It is also a good idea to shell out the 99 cents and buy all the filters. You can try them out as tiny previews and pick and choose. You can star your favorites for quick access later. When opening the app you'll see an option to go right back to editing your last photo, picks up where you left off with each filter. The only con I have about this app is the fact that I can't crop my pictures and has a square crop option but it automatically does it for me. Also would love to be able to choose which parts of my pics can go in the filters that grid sections of the photo (there's a couple like that, I love the rainbow one) Overall amazing app! Totally worth giving a detailed review.
Great App!
by CanvasSpots on 2012/10/25 21:38
IMPORTANT HELPFUL NOTE: If you download the "plus" version using the in-app purchases, you do not download the plus app. However, if for any reason you restore your iPhone/iPad, do not worry about losing your purchases. Tap to download the plus version from this app again, it will say you need to pay again. Ignore that, type in your password, and then it will acknowledge that you have already paid for the plus version. You will NOT be charged twice to get all the filters and effects. Thank you. I love this app for giving my photos that final touch-up, and my friends are always impressed at the photos I take. I always recommend this app! Some things it needs includes moving the back button to the top left instead of close to the editing buttons. I've pressed it by accident and had to start over. This app also needs a rotate picture button and a rotate button for both the lighting and frames. Last, it would be great if we could move the lighting around. Other than those things, it's still a great app and I highly recommend it.
Great app but needs improvement
by Terryp33 on 2012/01/27 19:31
As a freelance portrait, pet and travel photographer, I am constantly trying out new photo editing apps. As soon as I downloaded the free version of this app, I was so impressed by it that I immediately upgraded to the full version. While I am still basically delighted with it, a little bit of tweaking here and there is called for. First and foremost, an undo button is an absolute must, one that would both do an instant restore to the original photo as well as undo each enhancement in increments. Another welcome addition would be a pan and zoom feature. Currently in order to see the photo at full size, I am saving it and then deleting it each time I apply additional effects. A slider that would control the intensity of each effect (the width of a frame to cite one example) would also be very useful. But the undo button is most essential. Add this one feature and the app will be stellar and I will happily upgrade my rating to five star.
Easy to Use With Great Results.
by Recronin on 2012/03/21 19:34
Pros 💟Large selection of filters and effects; many more included with an in-app purchase. 💟Quality of effects are top-notch. 💟"Favorite" feature for keeping your favorite effects at the front of their list. Cons 🆚Having a paid version of this app is confusing/unnecessary. It's the same as this free app and just includes the in-app purchases. 🆚Needs better organization of effects (choosing a drop down such as "All," "Grunge," "Nature," etc.). Other Thoughts ✳There's a huge amount of filters and effects to choose from, which is a good and bad thing. It can take a while to find the effect you want, even of you know the name of it. Fortunately there is a way to "favorite" effects, and they will show at the beginning of the list. ✳With the Retina Display on the new iPad, an accompanying update to match the new resolution would be nice. It would take a lot of work on the part of Autodesk however as all the effects would need to be recreated in higher resolution. With the camera resolutions of the current iOS devices and the smaller preview window of the effects within the app, this may not even be necessary unless users import photos from their digital cameras. Retina Display updates to the new iPad can just be done to the interface instead.
One of my favorites
by nola723 on 2012/05/16 23:30
I don't see why everyone seems to be having a problem with this app. It has always worked beautifully for me on my iPod. In the world of effects, filters, and borders, this is THE BEST APP, hands down. No other app comes remotely close to the level of professionalism and beauty you can get from your pictures with this one. I have just two suggestions; some constructive criticism to make this app even better. I wish there was a way to organize which filters you want before others. I use the Space ones a lot on my sky pictures, and it does get slightly irksome to scroll though ALL the effects to reach them. I also wish the Bokeh effects were more legitimate. I try to make my photos as professional as possible, and, honestly, butterflies and flowers and hearts don't do it for me. If there were just smaller, lighter circles and shapes that didn't necessarily cover the whole picture, I would delete every other app I have and use this one. Also, before you bash a perfectly wonderful app, get familiar with it, recognize its capabilities, and then do whatever you want. Another thing: at least try to do something about your grammar. It's atrocious and makes me cringe. I cabt eben telll u howe stuped u luk when u type stuffz leik dis!!!!!!!7
BEYOND AMAZING!!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
by Shelsterrr on 2013/02/15 14:24
I absolutely love this app to death. Worth way more than free or 99¢. I use it almost every day and with tons of pictures. There is everything you need in just one app. It is extremely simple to use and to create amazing looking photos. I think the people that are saying that they don't get the extra stuff they paid for didn't go into the "extras" section to download the new content. But seriously though, if you want to make your picture look like it got edited by a professional designer, then use this app! It takes only a couple minutes to mix and match your settings. I highly highly recommend this to even the most inexperienced picture editor. It's fun to use, very simple, and everyone will be complimenting your photos. 5 stars all the way!
Wish I could give 2 1/2 🌟...
by Liminal Indigo on 2012/02/07 23:29
... but I have to stick with 2 for now. Okay, they changed the ridiculous pricing to a one-time fee of $2.99 for whichever packs you want to download. (Some are ridiculous, like the flames, but whatever.) That's cool AS LONG AS the one-time fee holds up as they keep adding packs & updating. **My biggest complaint is that *most* of the effects are MUCH too "IN YOUR FACE", and/or completely obscure the pic (just sooo fake-looking), & a MUST would be ••a slider to control the intensity of each effect••. Being able to ••resize the frames (thinner or thicker so it looks better & you're not cutting off your pics!) with a slider•• is also a MUST. It'd be cool if we had the "normal" editing effects, such as saturation, contrast, etc etc. It's better than the last update, though. If I see slider changes to control the intensity of the effects & thickness of the frames, *á la CameraPlus*, my rating will go up to 5 stars!! ƪ( ︶ ྱの。)ʃ
Has glitches when saving
by Nyantoo on 2012/08/17 18:27
It would have been a great app except for a few things. First when taking a picture it uses a small preview screen instead of the full ipad screen so seeing if the objects are properly focus the first time is a bit hard. Youll be forced to take a picture see if its okay and if not retake it. Second, when editing the pictures and adding effects it uses a lower resolution preview to speed the process up, but it makes guessing the final outcome a bit harder. (i noticed this because in the app it looked blurry but upon saving and opening it in photos it looked great) Third, and this one is the deal breaker, upon saving it the pic looks greet except there are occasional discolorations. For example i have a pic of my electric fan but right at the edge of the fan blades theres a group of turquoise pixels and bits of yellow pixels in the background. Note Im using an ipad 3, so perhaps this issue affects only the latest models since the app doesn't seem to be retina capable yet. Update: upon investigating it seems the buggy pixels only appear if you import to your camera roll using either original or very large settings AND if you applied an effect. Please fix this as i don't want to use a lower resolution image.
An update that REMOVES features? LOL
by NYCJames on 2012/01/14 06:44
To be honest this app was never that good. In fact the only thing it's decent for is applying borders to your photos. Of the border presets, maybe 3 or 4 are usable, the rest are just tacky. The same goes for the lighting effects, most of them are gimmicky and you're probably never going to use 98% of them unless maybe you're 12 years old. The funniest thing is that, in this latest update, they have REMOVED all of the filters that were previously there. Again, 98% of them were horrible and unusable. Like most camera filter apps, you got one or two that are pretty cool looking, and the rest are just garish overloads of red and purple. But they took them away and are making you pay for them, so whatever. I seriously doubt that many people are going to pay for what was pretty lame anyway. I will keep the app for the borders, but that's about it.
great app!
by rivergirl114 on 2012/01/11 02:26
I got this app because I thought that Instamatic was 1) not super great for iPad when you don't have an iPhone, and 2) Instamatic was very limited as to how you can manipulate your photos. This app offers so much mor in the free version an Instamatic does and you can still load those pictures to your Instamatic feed without loss of image quality. The options for additional filters, frames, burns, light leaks, etc are great. My only concern is that I have a little bit of trouble buying new ones from the app. It mint be something I'm doing wrong but it keeps telling me that I'm not connected to iTunes when I really am. If that were fixed I would give it more than 5 stars.
Out of all photo edit prog. This has been the best, and FREE!!
by allively on 2012/02/05 09:03
I have at least 7 or 8 photo editing apps on my iPad right now. Some I've paid for, some have been free. And, without any doubt, this has been the best editor by far. I feel like I'm stealing it with it being free. Lots of options, easy to use, photos are better than ever. AND IN FULL QUALITY (other programs shrink the size/quality which makes sharing a pain) One dilemma, when emailing the photo to yourself it is not a jpeg (which is slightly annoying). Instead, save the edited photo yo your library and email it to yourself (or whomever) so you can have the full. Jpeg file.
FOUND ALL MY PURCHASED STUFF
by Vampoler on 2014/10/18 01:54
I was about to delete the app until I figured out how to get all my stuff back. When editing a pic, tap the gear symbol in the top right corner... Then you can re-download the color filters... THEN WHILE STILL THERE...tap the middle circle at the bottom and you'll be able to restore those...then tap the circle for the frames and those can be restored. It seems like they're gone if you switch to the second filter or frame section and then tap the gear, because it automatically shows you the color filter section instead of anything in the section you were actually using to edit the pic.
9,458,176,296 STARS!
by Sremed88 on 2011/12/22 07:45
I don't ever write reviews, nor do i ever read them... Because reviews are terrible.... But.. this app is the best thing I have ever bought for my phone. I just got the update and I haven't even played with it yet, but I instantly bought every feature I could.... I don't even need to know if it's worth the money because I already know it is well worth it.... I use this app for everything... It has the cleanest interface I have ever seen on any other photo app. It has a unique/grungy/artistic feel... It is Extremely simple to use. It is fast and convenient. Hundreds of ways to create
Was great but...
by Avid User/Infuriated Customer on 2013/12/20 10:56
I had ALL the filters downloaded, and haven't used the app in a while. Well I went to use it today and suddenly all the filters are gone and I only have access to the default ones and have to pay for all the other ones. As someone who has used the app and used the editor even before it was an app I'm highly disappointed. Don't know how they can take something away from their loyal customers after we've already had it so long, it's a bunch of bs. They'll get 5 stars when I get my filters back without having to pay for all of them, as I had them ALL before and now they've taken them away and I suddenly have to pay to get them back. Was once my fave pic editing source.

by justme348 on 2011/09/20 17:09
I loved this App.. I've spent a lot of money at the App store..and once in a while I get a great App for free.. This was one, and it was 5 stars.. I guess the developer realized what a great App it was... And wished they had charged.. But thinking wisely.. All your great reviews have gone down.. If I were you .. I would make it the way it was.. And I'm 100% sure.. You will get your 5 star ratings again.. Then you can charge the price you want. At this point .. Your just making it worse .. Review #2 Update Rocks.. A bit slow at first, but if you upload it again.. Works perfect:) Thanks devs:)
Pic preview different than final - Updated
by iCain on 2012/06/23 03:14
I originally gave this app a bad review with 2 stars because the Pic Preview in the app looked amazing, but when I exported the pic, it was blurry and had weird lines. I also noticed other people complaining about this. After playing around with the app I noticed that if the original pic is large, and I do not export it as a smaller size, it does often distort the final pic. If I export it from the app in a smaller size, the exported pic looks the same as it did when I previewed it in the app. Hope this helps other people.
Back to amazing
by Workitworkman on 2012/05/10 21:59
Whatever the bug was with the last update was is simply fixed by uninstalling the app and re-downloading. There is the minor inconvenience of re-downloading and purchased effects again but this is much better than the alternative. You will not have to re-pay for anything you have bought. As with all apps, a box will appear asking if you want to buy the download. Simply proceed through it and another pop-up will appear tell you that you have already bought it. Enjoy.
A pleasant surprise!
by Deeashley on 2011/10/10 20:57
I only downloaded this app because it was free and figured I'd be deleting it after about 5 minutes. I have at least 50 photo edit/filter apps and they usually become redundant. At first glance this app looks similar to many others... However, I am happy to say I was proven wrong! The filters are truly unique! A perfect app for the novice to spruce up mediocre photos, (or great ones!), and a fun app for more seasoned iphoneographers looking for that unique "something" to add to their edits. Even the frames are unique (WITHOUT being too cheesy and no silly little stickers and such). A few of the presets might borderline on silly, but hey, lots of people like silly! TWO BIG SUGGESTIONS to make this a five star app: 1: most important! RESOLUTION!! 2: make the preset strength adjustable! This is my only problem. I'd use a lot more of the filters if I could tone them down a bit. :) But, hey! IT'S FREE, so I'm happy!! SUPPLEMENTAL: I am HAPPY to say that the developers have come through on the resolution!!! THANK YOU! :))
Having trouble
by Kaodias on 2012/05/30 02:27
I find it extremely disappointing that a few months ago I was able to download it into my iPhone that can't be updated with the latest versions of iOS, and now I just can't do it. Everything now is being made properly for latest iOS versions and not only, but for latest iPhone versions. Market is cruel to those who aren't able to buy an iPhone 4s or the ultimate version whatever is it. You have to start thinking you have clients all over the world with different phones. Even if it's a free app. It's because of this free app that you get clients who buy the other one. Now I know I wouldn't buy it. If I had a company, or anything like that I would care about this little issues. It's not something impossible after all.
Highly recommend this app
by ghvst on 2012/11/05 15:11
Has the largest selection of filters of any photo app i have seen... The amount of filters, light leak effects and frames for a dollar you get are really fun to play around with and well worth the $.99. I use this app to edit photos before putting on instagram or just messing around on it. I love that you can change which filters are in your menu (there are so many) and favorite the ones you use the most to be in the front. Fun app, nice layout, intuitive setup...definitely worth it!!!!!:):):)
Would be 3 stars if I could actually save edited images...
by Ebr2002 on 2011/08/21 19:31
This app is fine for simple, quick filter additions, although other apps (including free ones) do a better job--and they allow you to save the edited image to your photo album, which I have been unable to do thus far with this one. Until the saving issue is fixed, this app is not even worth the small amount of iPhone memory space it consumes. Phototreats is a much better bet, at the same price: free. Fotolr PS is also a very good option in the free category. (PhotoStudio, PhotoForge and Camera+ are even better, for those willing to spend an extra dollar or two...). Believe me: I've tried just about every photo app out there...
Loved it, Now Outrageously Priced
by Catharsis4 on 2012/01/04 08:56
This app is fun to use and used to be entirely free. It works well, although there are no editing options to adjust effects. However, recently, the app started to sell more effects as in-app purchases. This wouldn't be so terrible except that what you are getting for the the money is ridiculously low. If one were to buy every set of effects, it would cost $16! Every individual set is very limited. This would seem more reasonable to me if all the in-app purchases were sold for $1.99, but given the way it is now, the cost makes this one of the most expensive camera apps with one of the fewest effects/leeway to edit. Poorly done! I'm very disappointed.
Awesome
by mbmckean on 2013/02/27 02:27
This is a great app to make your pictures look "better". It's a very good app for Instagram because you don't have to feel like that one person that doesn't have "fancy snazzy" pictures the quality is spectacular with tons of FXs to choose from. Its fun to also toy around with to try new contrasts for your pictures! Overall it's a must have for Instagram users and even if your not an IG user it's great to use on Facebook or twitter. Even just showing your friends on your phone is fine too! :)
Whizam!
by Spitbite on 2012/01/30 20:49
Alright I like this app a whole lot better than I used to. Since I've been using pixlromatic for a while they gave me a free Plus subscription. You guys rock. Thanks for giving the first generation users some serious love. But for those who are just downloading this, it's a good app. Lots of options and I LOVE the fact that I can swap out 'packs' and choose which filters I can opt to put on the editing screen. I guess instead of buying up packs at .99 cents tou can subscribe to the Plus option, I vouch for doing that because some of these effects are frickin awesome.
Crashes
by DreDay48 on 2011/08/22 03:55
Seems like such a cool app. I've been wishin that my modern photos could somehow end up looking retro, and I'm always looking for ways to make them seem more old fashioned. This app seemed like a great way to mess around with my photos like that. But it crashes every time I try to work on a photo...and nothing is saved so I have to start again. I would love a fix for thuis, and then I'd be able to highly recommend it. Fun, cool, and with sweskme choices for messing with pics, but 1 star since it doesn't work :(
No way to delete photos
by badkitty_ on 2013/02/17 17:34
This app is missing several important functions. First, it shows the last photo that you worked on. But it does not offer you the option of deleting that photo from that area. Nor, in fact, is there any Delete Photos option. Second, there are no key functions such as remove red eye, erase (if you want to erase part of your photo), etc. I was really looking for ways to manipulate my image, not just lay filters on top of it. Third, I merely touched the crop tool and it immediately applied it to my photo without me giving it permission to. It also is a one-size-fits-all crop tool. You do not get to choose a size on your crop: it does it for you. And there is no undo feature on the crop.
Am not really impressed....
by brogreggblues on 2011/12/31 07:44
Pixlromatic as the name states in itself "matic" like automatic: simple and easy. I found the app simple and easy to use. Uploading or taking pictures straight from my camera or camera roll. The thing I don't like about this app is that its effects work well with good quality photos, but lag with lesser quality. The effect seems to be on an invisible sheet of ice or glass, making the photo look fake, or edited. The number one point of "editing" a photo is to make it look natural but not be natural.....also not impressed that the didn't keep the cool interface as the online pixlromatic has...
Fantastic update!
by TyzorTyler on 2014/10/05 21:32
I've used this app for years, and the most recent update adds almost all of the features I've thought to myself it needed. All my previously purchased kits are easily added again, but now I can pick and choose what items in each add on package that I want to install. Don't like a specific filter? Disable it!! The only thing missing is I'd like it to integrate directly to my Photos app with the new "other" editing feature. Five stars. Thanks, Autodesk!!
Doesn't save your pictures, which makes it pointless!
by Tiffklin on 2012/02/13 18:37
So at first I really loved this photo app... I loved the different options. Every other photo and video app will save your pictures to your camera roll, well not this app. Once you take the picture an finish it doesn't save it... It is insane to have an app that doesn't save your pictures. I am sad that I liked this app so much at first, because I lost several pictures because I thought it saved to my phone like every other single app!!!!! I emailed the company and they said that not all users want their pictures saved, freedom of choice????? Who doesn't want to save their pictures.
Sizing
by MeeshFrack on 2013/05/15 16:14
I adore this app. My biggest problem is that when you save your edited photo it saves too big to use it on Instagram. I've been able to save this by taking a screen shot of the final photo, only problem with that is the app has the photo hanging off a line with brown clips... Which is cute, but, ruins the top of the photo... Which sometimes you can't crop out. I think users would benefit from 2 things... The option to save for Instagram, and/or being able to save the pic with out the brown clothing line type clips
Help??!?!!!?!
by 📷📷📷📷❤ on 2012/05/20 11:15
I used this app prior to its recent updates and it was perfect👌. However, I am now experiencing 2 problems. First, when I attempt to choose a picture to edit, it is soooo slloooowwwww. Second, when it FINALLY selects my picture and it is time to edit and use the effects... Exits out and I have to start all over!! IRRITATING! Nonetheless, despite all my problems with this app I still give it 4/5 stars because it does a wonderful job and edits my picture beautifully! But can something be done about these problems? 😒

by senor muffypants on 2011/12/25 22:54
As a photographer I am always looking for apps that will make great photos even better. There are some apps I really like, and then there is this app, which I absolutely love! This is one I have recommended to friends who are also now addicted to it. Easy to use, fun, awesome and unexpected outcomes that turn even the dullest pics into gems. I have an iPad2 and have not had any problems with crashing or saving photos. I have spent countless hours being entertained with this app.

Description
A fun and free photo editing tool to add retro effects and transform photos into cool vintage images.
Professional at best!
by Ashlinloe7 on 2020/03/18 22:14
I use this app every single week , several times a week for my djing ads and bar and Resturante ads! I love the button top left that random filters your pic- takes seconds and if you don’t like click again and again! Hands down the bestphoto app ever! Been using for years and years! Take a filter pic you like then re enter the filtered pic back into the app- save re enter over and over until you have the perfect pic!
Regarding complaints
by figatcave182 on 2020/03/16 02:38
I’ve seen some recent reviews for this app that talk about how i crashes very often. This app hasn’t been updated in two years. They made a new version called Pixlr which works much better and is frequently updated.
Formerly great, now abandoned.
by mypaperstuff on 2020/03/07 14:53
Freezes when you save a photo. Would it be that hard to fix it? Sheesh! Avoid.
No update for 2 years
by DJBSFO on 2020/01/06 04:07
Doesn’t work anymore
Awesome App
by mejae12 on 2019/12/06 01:18
Love Love Love this app ive used it for about 6 yrs now . I just decided Id if they had the iphone version.
It crashes
by izzyrocksout on 2019/10/31 03:59
First time I used it and tried to save the image the screen froze and I had to close out the app. There is no user interface to speak of. No sliders, just take the preset as it is given to you. Very few buttons and I couldn’t see that they did much of anything. Don’t bother downloading. Also notice it has been two years since they did a bug fix.
GO-TO photo editing app—when it works
by Jdhvd on 2019/09/29 16:10
This app breaks just about ever other iPhone update. It’s beginning to be more frustrating than it’s worth. I know it’s difficult for companies to keep up with phone manufacturer updates, but come on! Right now, to edit a single photo, I have to close the app and reopen it after every (editing) action that I take, and then once I save it to my phone, I have to reboot my phone in order to clear the app to be able to edit the next photo. I rely on my photo editing apps for my business. Customers should not have to endure such clunkiness—especially when they pay for something. This is the third time in recent memory, that this app has quit functioning. I am about ready to give up on it and find something more stable to rely on. Great app—the developers are on point, in creating an easy, user friendly app—which is why I don’t understand why they are so lazy with regards to updates. They are obviously intelligent enough to keep it running. I suppose once they have your money, they already have you, and they don’t have to work as hard. Try it out, it’s a good app, but think twice before you begin relying on it or paying for it.
Very very good
by Otman Rebel on 2019/08/13 21:06
Please Update the app for more
Underrated!
by ctrubac on 2019/07/10 11:15
The filters and flare effects on this app are very fun to use.
Needs updating
by Tortorswaggasaur on 2019/03/09 02:23
Ever since I got a new iPhone it doesn’t work right hand the quality when I try to save anything is crappy.
Great app
by Eviscool on 2018/11/09 13:47
I absolutely love this app easy to use and makes great photos
I can’t believe it’s free
by JohnBoy5562 on 2018/04/12 06:09
I just downloaded this app because I wanted to take photos and make them look like old polaroid pictures and this one does it and the best part is it’s free. The only thing that would make this app better would be to be able to add text. Like when you used to wright the time and date at the bottom of the polaroid pictures. Also look in the settings their is even more goodies like even more theme and effects to download for free. Thanks so much for a great photography app!

Best app since iPhone1
by akitagirl216 on 2017/07/16 20:37
Bought this with my first iTunes card and been downloading religiously since per phone. Best pic app EVER. when i say ever i mean E VE R since before this rating system existed!
Really Good App
by DME_Ski on 2017/06/04 15:31
I just started using this App after using the developer's Pixlr App for many years on all my phones and computers. Pilxromatic is kinda like the "unorganized version" of Pixlr, but I think it depends upon how you like your Apps set up. I'm more prone to use Pixlr, but this is good for a quick edit as it does list your favorites at the beginning of each selection.
Awesome Filters!
by Butts--7 on 2017/05/03 06:33
I've been using this app since my old iPhone 4. It's still one of my go-to photo apps :)
I though some of you would appreciate this, I got it in the help area
by Roxannefw on 2016/12/07 19:46
If you find yourself hunting for an overlay, border, or sticker pack in Pixlr for Mobile or Desktop that you used to have access to, check to see if you are signed in as an Essentials or Pro member. Some premium packs are available only for Essentials and Pro members, including a few of these fan favorites:
my favorite
by MrWolf23 on 2016/02/23 22:09
i discovered this my pc, and used it extensively for my photos, now i use this ios app 😊
Awful app
by Twilliams12 on 2015/09/30 18:15
Just doesn't work! App crashes every 5 seconds!
Crashes not intuitive
by retrofrugalista on 2015/08/29 13:14
Ads every second Very disappointing Save your time, don't download
Bad!!!
by Malloware on 2015/07/23 21:59
Very very little User control. Very very difficult to navigate. Screens open up with no explanation or prompts. The app really destroyed my images. I have many photo editing apps. This one is the lamest I have ever tried. This should not be in the Apple App Store. Apple, do some quality control please!!!!!

Where are extra downloadable effects?
by Isabel Batteria on 2015/07/20 00:24
It's not a matter of re-downloading them, which I gladly do every time I restore my iPhone. It's that there is no way in the app to download them anymore. This was my first go-to app. Now it's of no use.
I Paid For Filters! Where Are They???
by Mz Timah on 2015/07/19 18:15
I have loved this app since I first had it but where are all the filters I paid for and loved. This was the only app I used to edit my photos. What happened? Where are my filters? Is there an update coming? Am I being refunded?
So upset.
by Your Ex-Best Friend on 2015/06/04 02:33
This was formerly my go-to app for photo editing because of all the fun filters and effects. The most recent update took away a solid 75% of these filters and effects, many which I had paid for. So disappointed...I wish I hadn't updated.
Okay...serious time now
by Screwthisnicknamecrap on 2015/05/29 20:29
Why do the filters go Fred, Greg, Hagrid, Harry? Why is it not George? Why waste this perfect opportunity? (Other than that, I like this app. I forgot I downloaded it ages it ago and haven't used it in a couple of years and started using it again.)
Disappointed
by allureofbrazil on 2015/04/19 04:33
What happen to the app? All me filters are gone... I pay for all the filter and effects and now what??? PleaSe this app must to go back to the same before... Very disappointed
POINTLESSLY REQUIRES iOS 7.1!!
by nickjuly4 on 2015/02/28 22:44
This app pointlessly requires iOS 7 because the app developer is too lazy to support iOS 6!
Been using this for years
by JMANTN on 2015/02/26 04:02
Only downside is sometimes the output quality isn't as high as what u started out with. It degrades the image quality/resolution. Also need ability to adjust each effect...more and more apps now offer adjusting filter strength and placement for things such as flares, leaks, etc...
Great app!
by Ccristinuza on 2015/02/16 19:23
An app with a lot of effects and cool add-on to your photos !!!
No crop adjustment?
by MoonSmiles on 2015/02/15 02:51
If I select the cropping icon, the sides get chopped off to make the image square. That's it. No way that I can see to adjust the cropping to the portion that I want to save. Sad. Bye. :(
Great before update
by B*dub* on 2014/11/20 02:00
New layout seems too basic. Miss the creative look of the app.
Love using this app
by HallmanLady on 2014/11/09 04:48
I've had this app for a long time. Recently there was an update and the very things I paid have been chopped into less attractive subcategories without asking. It seems a bit unfair that I have lost $1.99 for each section of add ons and I want them back. It's an awesome app but I feel cheated.
Adjust Overlay
by halvaa on 2014/11/08 19:04
Is there an option to adjust the overlay? Sometimes I just want a subtle difference in the pic...
The Greatest
by Kmilla-BR on 2014/11/07 11:34
Guys, you're great! This app is just awesome!!! Thank you so much for those new free effects \o. Aos brasileiros: super recomendo o download!
Absolute favorite editor!
by Daniblaze on 2014/10/29 14:15
I've been using this app for years as well and to date I haven't found a better photo editor. Better filters than all the others, better effects, etc. My go to photo editor!
Love!
by Amatron on 2014/10/27 05:46
Love this app!!!
Best app ever
by animorphreader on 2014/10/25 13:09
I've had this app since it first came out and i'm so happy with it! Its just great~ highly recommend ^~^
Waste of time
by Herrcin on 2014/10/20 06:36
Filters no good
FOUND ALL MY PURCHASED STUFF
by Vampoler on 2014/10/18 01:54
I was about to delete the app until I figured out how to get all my stuff back. When editing a pic, tap the gear symbol in the top right corner... Then you can re-download the color filters... THEN WHILE STILL THERE...tap the middle circle at the bottom and you'll be able to restore those...then tap the circle for the frames and those can be restored. It seems like they're gone if you switch to the second filter or frame section and then tap the gear, because it automatically shows you the color filter section instead of anything in the section you were actually using to edit the pic.
It is ok
by The plant man swag on 2014/10/06 17:08
It is good if you are looking for A LOT of filters but not very good for actual edit not ideal for photo journalism.
Fantastic update!
by TyzorTyler on 2014/10/05 21:32
I've used this app for years, and the most recent update adds almost all of the features I've thought to myself it needed. All my previously purchased kits are easily added again, but now I can pick and choose what items in each add on package that I want to install. Don't like a specific filter? Disable it!! The only thing missing is I'd like it to integrate directly to my Photos app with the new "other" editing feature. Five stars. Thanks, Autodesk!!
Zero Stars - Where are my effects?
by KATHARINE TRINDL on 2014/10/01 05:51
This was my absolute photo favorite app EVER, until I mistakenly updated it. I want to cry. What has happened to all the 'Xtra' effects that I paid .99 for ? I used to spend hours fooling around with this app & smiling... now I feel like I'm in photo jail. :( This used to be magical, now it's just a nightmare! #BOOHOO
Where did my filters and borders go?
by sk8artz on 2014/09/30 21:29
So I updated but now lost the majority of my filters and borders. There doesn't even seem to be a way to reload them. This is a very poor update, badly done folks. Please resolve this for your longtime suppoters or I will have to delete this app and move on. Too bad too.
All filters and packs are free!
by FindYourBlissToday on 2014/09/29 15:49
For those of you that had previously purchased filters, it looks like they are all free to download now. Just click on that little gear icon at the top right of the screen once you edit a picture.
Bring back my filters
by Chromemic on 2014/09/29 05:37
Or at least have the decency to tell us you're removing them BEFORE we upgrade. I paid to upgrade the previous version. All my filters are gone! Smash and?Grab AppStore robbery. This update is WORSE than when you saddled PAYING customers with your hideously intrusive overlay ad for the shoddy "xpress" version of the app. If you don't fix this in the next release I'm sure you'll have far fewer users.
What a delicious update.
by famisamis on 2014/09/29 04:57
From one star to five. They took the time and updated the app right along with iOS 8 and it's amazing. Smooth interface and oh so speedy. My purchased packs easily restored. This is my favorite app to add unique lighting and filter effects. And now with a fresh update, I'm happy to recommend it without reservation. Enjoy.
Love the filters
by Tantan25 on 2014/09/28 16:02
Super fun way to change your photos into unique way.
Latest update is terrible
by babyart2000 on 2014/09/28 14:05
All my PURCHASED filters have disappeared and the rearrangement of the app is unwieldy. Yesterday I would have given five stars. Today, I'm ready to delete the app. :(
Where are all my purchased filters????
by Janitzav on 2014/09/28 01:06
I updated into the new version and all the filters i had purchased are no where to be found. I feel robbed!!!
No good
by Rod "razzle dazzle" P on 2014/09/09 23:48
I've used this app for years, had ALL of the filters, all of a sudden, I have to pay to restore them? 👎 no good

by iheartplcvalues on 2014/08/31 02:09
this app has so many filter/frame choices!! it is my fav and I'm yet to find one that can compete!

Great app! I love the filters on here, they are wonderful and make pictures look so much better! The only thing I would recommend is better border/frame options. But other than that, wonderful job.

Help
by No one likes fake music on 2014/05/16 02:13
This app was amazing, I used it for everything, I own a photography account on Instagram and this was the only app I used to edit my pictures. I BOUGHT it and recently had to have my phone fixed and replaced. I re-downloaded it thinking my purchase would be restored but now it's telling me I have to re-buy the app just to get the filters and photo leaker and frames. What is up with that? I know it's only 0.99 but still , why do I have to re-buy something I used everyday?
So easy to use!
by jansoucek  on 2014/05/10 18:15
I love the random filter button! Saves me a lot of time!
love it
by misterlucky64 on 2014/04/22 01:40
really good. bought all the filters. fair price.
Won't work!!
by  CRAZYBANNA on 2014/03/25 17:59
I downloaded this app then my battery died now it won't download and it won't let me delete it either! All that it says is "Wating" and I've been waiting for almost a day!!!!!!
It's grrrrreat!
by Gre'xx on 2014/03/13 01:50
It's simple and easy to use and makes you look like your top notch photographer with even little to no experience. Must download!!
Great app
by Kevin Harvey on 2014/02/17 17:55
My favorite photo editing app. Works great, super simple and easy to use.. And Autodesk is a great company!
I Used to Love This App
by zenlikeme on 2014/02/15 18:20
But their filters are a bit heavy-handed and there isn't any way to blend or soften these effects. I wish this app had more nuance and wasn't quite so... Instagram.
 bugs!
by  Gopurple1 on 2014/02/09 17:50
The effects trip out a lot! They disappear out of nowhere!!! The app is almost useless!!!
Overall, I dig it.
by kris hays  on 2014/02/07 03:34
I really enjoy this app, but I cannot for the life of me get the in-app purchases to download! It's one of two photo apps that I use all the time. Love it, but wish I had more!
Great App !!

by Hghvtcycjcfx on 2014/01/12 00:29
I just found this app and I love all the filters and effects
It works now!
by MandyKruz  on 2014/01/10 16:37
It used to crash every 5 seconds so i had to Reinstall it. If you got the upgrade you have to do it again but it won't charge you. It will ask you if you want to buy it, select yes and then it will ask you if you want to pay the $$$, select yes. After a few seconds it will say that it was already purchased. It won't charge you again! Try it! Its an awesome app!

Mine will not work. I tap on upload & it won't do anything. It's like I'm tapping on a picture, it just doesn't work! #fix it please!
Was great but...
by Avid User/Infuriated Customer on 2013/12/20 10:56
I had ALL the filters downloaded, and haven't used the app in a while. Well I went to use it today and suddenly all the filters are gone and I only have access to the default ones and have to pay for all the other ones. As someone who has used the app and used the editor even before it was an app I'm highly disappointed. Don't know how they can take something away from their loyal customers after we've already had it so long, it's a bunch of bs. They'll get 5 stars when I get my filters back without having to pay for all of them, as I had them ALL before and now they've taken them away and I suddenly have to pay to get them back. Was once my fave pic editing source.
I use to like it
by Sassie79 on 2013/12/14 22:08
As soon as I purchase from this app, it spits me out and will not reopen. I loved it and used it all the time.
Pretty Nice App!!
by  Mich112233 on 2013/12/14 17:26
It's been crashing a lot since the upgrade though, is that going to get fixed anytime soon?

PLEASE FIX
by Hutchweez  on 2013/12/05 03:29
I give it five stars because this is an amazing app and I use it all the time. But since the update I have not been able to save any of my pictures. Please fix it. I don't want to do the screen shot method. I won't deduct a star because of course people make mistakes but please fix soon! IG: augiegohard

by  CHRISTOPHER KEYES on 2013/12/01 11:52
does not recognize that I paid to get all the extra filters, frames, effects. Did not save my favorite (starred) filters! :( please fix this!! I used to love this app! used it all the time...
Really nice app, but...
by Sammysgranny on 2013/11/30 18:28
After I bought the entire catalog, I now have to scroll through hundreds of choices! Is there a way of isolating just my favorites? This gets really tedious, and I should have made careful choices when initially selecting which to download, but didn't know then. This feature should really be addressed.
Love it
by Crmr88 on 2013/11/30 09:31
I love this app, it's simple yet has a lot of different filters and effects to choose from.
Great Effects
by EMSEETWO  on 2013/11/23 13:15
If you're looking for effects and don't need heavy photo editing this is the app for you.
Please add scale for filters
by Chella F on 2013/11/17 17:28
I love the filters and countless was to be creative with photos. I will update my review to 5 stars when effects are scalable. They are great, but effects are far too strong on many images and I wish I could tone them down.
Awesome

Lost Filters
by tm1300 on 2013/11/06 08:06
I used to use this app faithfully but once after updating or changing phones (can't remember which) I lost most of the extra filters I had purchased. So now I don't use it as much as before. Why were the purchases erased?

Take a filter pic you like then re enter the filtered pic back into the app- save re enter over and over until you have the perfect pic!
Really Good App

I just started using this App after using the developer's Pixlr App for many years on all my phones and computers. Pilxromatic is kinda like the "unorganized version" of Pixlr, but I think it depends upon how you like your Apps set up. I'm more prone to use Pixlr, but this is good for a quick edit as it does list your favorites at the beginning of each selection.
Regarding complaints
by figatcave182 on 2020/03/16 02:38
I’ve seen some recent reviews for this app that talk about how i crashes very often. This app hasn’t been updated in two years. They made a new version called Pixlr which works much better and is frequently updated.
It crashes
by izzyrocksout on 2019/10/31 03:59
First time I used it and tried to save the image the screen froze and I had to close out the app. There is no user interface to speak of. No sliders, just take the preset as it is given to you. Very few buttons and I couldn’t see that they did much of anything. Don’t bother downloading. Also notice it has been two years since they did a bug fix.
Best app since iPhone1

Bought this with my first iTunes card and been downloading religiously since per phone. Best pic app EVER. when i say ever i mean E VE R since before this rating system existed!
Awesome Filters!

I've been using this app since my old iPhone 4. It's still one of my go-to photo apps :)
Great app
by Eviscool on 2018/11/09 13:47
I absolutely love this app easy to use and makes great photos
Needs updating
by Tortorswaggasaur on 2019/03/09 02:23
Ever since I got a new iPhone it doesn’t work right hand the quality when I try to save anything is crappy.
Underrated!

The filters and flare effects on this app are very fun to use.
Awesome App

Wow
by Cassie36 on 2012/03/16 07:16
I activated the Plus portion of the app and just Wow. This was a unique app before doing that with the names and interesting results you could get by shuffling. But, the Plus addition lets you into a whole new world of uniqueness. I have probably 200 photo camera and editing apps between the iPad and iPhone and many do not stand out from each other and have been deleted. This one just made the cut before. Now it will be a go-to app when I need something special. The additional filters are not much to speak of, but the additional papers, light leaks, and especially the frames, are different from any of the others that I have seen. I am super impressed by it. I hesitated at the $3 price of admission, but I'm so glad that I took the leap. The frames alone are worth it and I think that I'll even be pulling in edited photos just to use the frames. Like I said, I have not seen the likes of them anywhere else. Do yourself a favor and upgrade. It's soo worth it! My one complaint is minor. I wish that when a photo is vertical, the filters and such would be seen vertically. And, I really, really wish that there was landscape mode on the iPad. That one is kind of a big wish because I mostly work in landscape mode. But, overall, this app is more than worth the price of admission!
Same app as Pixelr Expess Plus
by AliciaHollywood on 2013/03/02 21:51
OK I just bumped this up from 1 star to 4... My original review is below. I broke down and re-downloaded all the same filters I had just downloaded for PixelR Express Plus because I was just having too much fun with the randomizer. I still wish the randomizer was PART of PixelR Express Plus so I don't have to go back and forth to fine tune, but for now, enjoying both apps... I don't get this app-- it has all the effects that come free with PixelR Expess Plus but it requires a download for an additional $.99... It has a lot less control over the effects, no fine tuning, and the only possible crop is a square one. The only cool thing is the randomizer. If they just added that on to the PixelR Plus app (which I will rate 5 stars, love it!), this app would be pointless. I almost considered paying the $.99 just for the randomizer but I don't want to redownload all those filters, they take up too much space on my iPad for two copies of the same thing. If they added a randomizer to PixelR plus, I'd happily pay the extra dollar just for that, rather than have two redundant space taking apps...
I never write reviews! This is my 1st. So worth my time.
by IG: ✨_feliciachristina✨ on 2013/03/12 02:52
I have tried and bought many photo editing apps. I have a lot of favorites but I always run my photos through this - it's a must have. Makes my pics stand out and has so many options and filters to choose from, so it allows maximum customization. It is also a good idea to shell out the 99 cents and buy all the filters. You can try them out as tiny previews and pick and choose. You can star your favorites for quick access later. When opening the app you'll see an option to go right back to editing your last photo, picks up where you left off with each filter. The only con I have about this app is the fact that I can't crop my pictures and has a square crop option but it automatically does it for me. Also would love to be able to choose which parts of my pics can go in the filters that grid sections of the photo (there's a couple like that, I love the rainbow one) Overall amazing app! Totally worth giving a detailed review.
Great App!
by CanvasSpots on 2012/10/25 21:38
IMPORTANT HELPFUL NOTE: If you download the "plus" version using the in-app purchases, you do not download the plus app. However, if for any reason you restore your iPhone/iPad, do not worry about losing your purchases. Tap to download the plus version from this app again, it will say you need to pay again. Ignore that, type in your password, and then it will acknowledge that you have already paid for the plus version. You will NOT be charged twice to get all the filters and effects. Thank you. I love this app for giving my photos that final touch-up, and my friends are always impressed at the photos I take. I always recommend this app! Some things it needs includes moving the back button to the top left instead of close to the editing buttons. I've pressed it by accident and had to start over. This app also needs a rotate picture button and a rotate button for both the lighting and frames. Last, it would be great if we could move the lighting around. Other than those things, it's still a great app and I highly recommend it.
Great app but needs improvement
by Terryp33 on 2012/01/27 19:31
As a freelance portrait, pet and travel photographer, I am constantly trying out new photo editing apps. As soon as I downloaded the free version of this app, I was so impressed by it that I immediately upgraded to the full version. While I am still basically delighted with it, a little bit of tweaking here and there is called for. First and foremost, an undo button is an absolute must, one that would both do an instant restore to the original photo as well as undo each enhancement in increments. Another welcome addition would be a pan and zoom feature. Currently in order to see the photo at full size, I am saving it and then deleting it each time I apply additional effects. A slider that would control the intensity of each effect (the width of a frame to cite one example) would also be very useful. But the undo button is most essential. Add this one feature and the app will be stellar and I will happily upgrade my rating to five star.
Easy to Use With Great Results.
by Recronin on 2012/03/21 19:34
Pros 💟Large selection of filters and effects; many more included with an in-app purchase. 💟Quality of effects are top-notch. 💟"Favorite" feature for keeping your favorite effects at the front of their list. Cons 🆚Having a paid version of this app is confusing/unnecessary. It's the same as this free app and just includes the in-app purchases. 🆚Needs better organization of effects (choosing a drop down such as "All," "Grunge," "Nature," etc.). Other Thoughts ✳There's a huge amount of filters and effects to choose from, which is a good and bad thing. It can take a while to find the effect you want, even of you know the name of it. Fortunately there is a way to "favorite" effects, and they will show at the beginning of the list. ✳With the Retina Display on the new iPad, an accompanying update to match the new resolution would be nice. It would take a lot of work on the part of Autodesk however as all the effects would need to be recreated in higher resolution. With the camera resolutions of the current iOS devices and the smaller preview window of the effects within the app, this may not even be necessary unless users import photos from their digital cameras. Retina Display updates to the new iPad can just be done to the interface instead.
One of my favorites
by nola723 on 2012/05/16 23:30
I don't see why everyone seems to be having a problem with this app. It has always worked beautifully for me on my iPod. In the world of effects, filters, and borders, this is THE BEST APP, hands down. No other app comes remotely close to the level of professionalism and beauty you can get from your pictures with this one. I have just two suggestions; some constructive criticism to make this app even better. I wish there was a way to organize which filters you want before others. I use the Space ones a lot on my sky pictures, and it does get slightly irksome to scroll though ALL the effects to reach them. I also wish the Bokeh effects were more legitimate. I try to make my photos as professional as possible, and, honestly, butterflies and flowers and hearts don't do it for me. If there were just smaller, lighter circles and shapes that didn't necessarily cover the whole picture, I would delete every other app I have and use this one. Also, before you bash a perfectly wonderful app, get familiar with it, recognize its capabilities, and then do whatever you want. Another thing: at least try to do something about your grammar. It's atrocious and makes me cringe. I cabt eben telll u howe stuped u luk when u type stuffz leik dis!!!!!!!7
BEYOND AMAZING!!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
by Shelsterrr on 2013/02/15 14:24
I absolutely love this app to death. Worth way more than free or 99¢. I use it almost every day and with tons of pictures. There is everything you need in just one app. It is extremely simple to use and to create amazing looking photos. I think the people that are saying that they don't get the extra stuff they paid for didn't go into the "extras" section to download the new content. But seriously though, if you want to make your picture look like it got edited by a professional designer, then use this app! It takes only a couple minutes to mix and match your settings. I highly highly recommend this to even the most inexperienced picture editor. It's fun to use, very simple, and everyone will be complimenting your photos. 5 stars all the way!
Wish I could give 2 1/2 🌟...
by Liminal Indigo on 2012/02/07 23:29
... but I have to stick with 2 for now. Okay, they changed the ridiculous pricing to a one-time fee of $2.99 for whichever packs you want to download. (Some are ridiculous, like the flames, but whatever.) That's cool AS LONG AS the one-time fee holds up as they keep adding packs & updating. **My biggest complaint is that *most* of the effects are MUCH too "IN YOUR FACE", and/or completely obscure the pic (just sooo fake-looking), & a MUST would be ••a slider to control the intensity of each effect••. Being able to ••resize the frames (thinner or thicker so it looks better & you're not cutting off your pics!) with a slider•• is also a MUST. It'd be cool if we had the "normal" editing effects, such as saturation, contrast, etc etc. It's better than the last update, though. If I see slider changes to control the intensity of the effects & thickness of the frames, *á la CameraPlus*, my rating will go up to 5 stars!! ƪ( ︶ ྱの。)ʃ
Has glitches when saving
by Nyantoo on 2012/08/17 18:27
It would have been a great app except for a few things. First when taking a picture it uses a small preview screen instead of the full ipad screen so seeing if the objects are properly focus the first time is a bit hard. Youll be forced to take a picture see if its okay and if not retake it. Second, when editing the pictures and adding effects it uses a lower resolution preview to speed the process up, but it makes guessing the final outcome a bit harder. (i noticed this because in the app it looked blurry but upon saving and opening it in photos it looked great) Third, and this one is the deal breaker, upon saving it the pic looks greet except there are occasional discolorations. For example i have a pic of my electric fan but right at the edge of the fan blades theres a group of turquoise pixels and bits of yellow pixels in the background. Note Im using an ipad 3, so perhaps this issue affects only the latest models since the app doesn't seem to be retina capable yet. Update: upon investigating it seems the buggy pixels only appear if you import to your camera roll using either original or very large settings AND if you applied an effect. Please fix this as i don't want to use a lower resolution image.
An update that REMOVES features? LOL
by NYCJames on 2012/01/14 06:44
To be honest this app was never that good. In fact the only thing it's decent for is applying borders to your photos. Of the border presets, maybe 3 or 4 are usable, the rest are just tacky. The same goes for the lighting effects, most of them are gimmicky and you're probably never going to use 98% of them unless maybe you're 12 years old. The funniest thing is that, in this latest update, they have REMOVED all of the filters that were previously there. Again, 98% of them were horrible and unusable. Like most camera filter apps, you got one or two that are pretty cool looking, and the rest are just garish overloads of red and purple. But they took them away and are making you pay for them, so whatever. I seriously doubt that many people are going to pay for what was pretty lame anyway. I will keep the app for the borders, but that's about it.
great app!
by rivergirl114 on 2012/01/11 02:26
I got this app because I thought that Instamatic was 1) not super great for iPad when you don't have an iPhone, and 2) Instamatic was very limited as to how you can manipulate your photos. This app offers so much mor in the free version an Instamatic does and you can still load those pictures to your Instamatic feed without loss of image quality. The options for additional filters, frames, burns, light leaks, etc are great. My only concern is that I have a little bit of trouble buying new ones from the app. It mint be something I'm doing wrong but it keeps telling me that I'm not connected to iTunes when I really am. If that were fixed I would give it more than 5 stars.
Out of all photo edit prog. This has been the best, and FREE!!
by allively on 2012/02/05 09:03
I have at least 7 or 8 photo editing apps on my iPad right now. Some I've paid for, some have been free. And, without any doubt, this has been the best editor by far. I feel like I'm stealing it with it being free. Lots of options, easy to use, photos are better than ever. AND IN FULL QUALITY (other programs shrink the size/quality which makes sharing a pain) One dilemma, when emailing the photo to yourself it is not a jpeg (which is slightly annoying). Instead, save the edited photo yo your library and email it to yourself (or whomever) so you can have the full. Jpeg file.
FOUND ALL MY PURCHASED STUFF
by Vampoler on 2014/10/18 01:54
I was about to delete the app until I figured out how to get all my stuff back. When editing a pic, tap the gear symbol in the top right corner... Then you can re-download the color filters... THEN WHILE STILL THERE...tap the middle circle at the bottom and you'll be able to restore those...then tap the circle for the frames and those can be restored. It seems like they're gone if you switch to the second filter or frame section and then tap the gear, because it automatically shows you the color filter section instead of anything in the section you were actually using to edit the pic.

by Sremed88 on 2011/12/22 07:45
I don't ever write reviews, nor do i ever read them... Because reviews are terrible.... But.. this app is the best thing I have ever bought for my phone. I just got the update and I haven't even played with it yet, but I instantly bought every feature I could.... I don't even need to know if it's worth the money because I already know it is well worth it.... I use this app for everything... It has the cleanest interface I have ever seen on any other photo app. It has a unique/grungy/artistic feel... It is Extremely simple to use. It is fast and convenient. Hundreds of ways to create
Was great but...
by Avid User/Infuriated Customer on 2013/12/20 10:56
I had ALL the filters downloaded, and haven't used the app in a while. Well I went to use it today and suddenly all the filters are gone and I only have access to the default ones and have to pay for all the other ones. As someone who has used the app and used the editor even before it was an app I'm highly disappointed. Don't know how they can take something away from their loyal customers after we've already had it so long, it's a bunch of bs. They'll get 5 stars when I get my filters back without having to pay for all of them, as I had them ALL before and now they've taken them away and I suddenly have to pay to get them back. Was once my fave pic editing source.

I loved this App.. I've spent a lot of money at the App store..and once in a while I get a great App for free.. This was one, and it was 5 stars.. I guess the developer realized what a great App it was... And wished they had charged.. But thinking wisely.. All your great reviews have gone down.. If I were you .. I would make it the way it was.. And I'm 100% sure.. You will get your 5 star ratings again.. Then you can charge the price you want. At this point .. Your just making it worse .. Review #2 Update Rocks.. A bit slow at first, but if you upload it again.. Works perfect:) Thanks devs:)
Pic preview different than final - Updated
by iCain on 2012/06/23 03:14
I originally gave this app a bad review with 2 stars because the Pic Preview in the app looked amazing, but when I exported the pic, it was blurry and had weird lines. I also noticed other people complaining about this. After playing around with the app I noticed that if the original pic is large, and I do not export it as a smaller size, it does often distort the final pic. If I export it from the app in a smaller size, the exported pic looks the same as it did when I previewed it in the app. Hope this helps other people.
Back to amazing
by Workitworkman on 2012/05/10 21:59
Whatever the bug was with the last update was is simply fixed by uninstalling the app and re-downloading. There is the minor inconvenience of re-downloading and purchased effects again but this is much better than the alternative. You will not have to re-pay for anything you have bought. As with all apps, a box will appear asking if you want to buy the download. Simply proceed through it and another pop-up will appear tell you that you have already bought it. Enjoy.
A pleasant surprise!
by Deeashley on 2011/10/10 20:57
I only downloaded this app because it was free and figured I'd be deleting it after about 5 minutes. I have at least 50 photo edit/filter apps and they usually become redundant. At first glance this app looks similar to many others... However, I am happy to say I was proven wrong! The filters are truly unique! A perfect app for the novice to spruce up mediocre photos, (or great ones!), and a fun app for more seasoned iphoneographers looking for that unique "something" to add to their edits. Even the frames are unique (WITHOUT being too cheesy and no silly little stickers and such). A few of the presets might borderline on silly, but hey, lots of people like silly! TWO BIG SUGGESTIONS to make this a five star app: 1: most important! RESOLUTION!! 2: make the preset strength adjustable! This is my only problem. I'd use a lot more of the filters if I could tone them down a bit. :) But, hey! IT'S FREE, so I'm happy!! SUPPLEMENTAL: I am HAPPY to say that the developers have come through on the resolution!!! THANK YOU! :))
Having trouble
by Kaodias on 2012/05/30 02:27
I find it extremely disappointing that a few months ago I was able to download it into my iPhone that can't be updated with the latest versions of iOS, and now I just can't do it. Everything now is being made properly for latest iOS versions and not only, but for latest iPhone versions. Market is cruel to those who aren't able to buy an iPhone 4s or the ultimate version whatever is it. You have to start thinking you have clients all over the world with different phones. Even if it's a free app. It's because of this free app that you get clients who buy the other one. Now I know I wouldn't buy it. If I had a company, or anything like that I would care about this little issues. It's not something impossible after all.
Highly recommend this app
by ghvst on 2012/11/05 15:11
Has the largest selection of filters of any photo app i have seen... The amount of filters, light leak effects and frames for a dollar you get are really fun to play around with and well worth the $.99. I use this app to edit photos before putting on instagram or just messing around on it. I love that you can change which filters are in your menu (there are so many) and favorite the ones you use the most to be in the front. Fun app, nice layout, intuitive setup...definitely worth it!!!!!:):):)
Would be 3 stars if I could actually save edited images...
by Ebr2002 on 2011/08/21 19:31
This app is fine for simple, quick filter additions, although other apps (including free ones) do a better job--and they allow you to save the edited image to your photo album, which I have been unable to do thus far with this one. Until the saving issue is fixed, this app is not even worth the small amount of iPhone memory space it consumes. Phototreats is a much better bet, at the same price: free. Fotolr PS is also a very good option in the free category. (PhotoStudio, PhotoForge and Camera+ are even better, for those willing to spend an extra dollar or two...). Believe me: I've tried just about every photo app out there...
Loved it, Now Outrageously Priced
by Catharsis4 on 2012/01/04 08:56
This app is fun to use and used to be entirely free. It works well, although there are no editing options to adjust effects. However, recently, the app started to sell more effects as in-app purchases. This wouldn't be so terrible except that what you are getting for the the money is ridiculously low. If one were to buy every set of effects, it would cost $16! Every individual set is very limited. This would seem more reasonable to me if all the in-app purchases were sold for $1.99, but given the way it is now, the cost makes this one of the most expensive camera apps with one of the fewest effects/leeway to edit. Poorly done! I'm very disappointed.
Awesome
by mbmckean on 2013/02/27 02:27
This is a great app to make your pictures look "better". It's a very good app for Instagram because you don't have to feel like that one person that doesn't have "fancy snazzy" pictures the quality is spectacular with tons of FXs to choose from. Its fun to also toy around with to try new contrasts for your pictures! Overall it's a must have for Instagram users and even if your not an IG user it's great to use on Facebook or twitter. Even just showing your friends on your phone is fine too! :)
Whizam!
by Spitbite on 2012/01/30 20:49
Alright I like this app a whole lot better than I used to. Since I've been using pixlromatic for a while they gave me a free Plus subscription. You guys rock. Thanks for giving the first generation users some serious love. But for those who are just downloading this, it's a good app. Lots of options and I LOVE the fact that I can swap out 'packs' and choose which filters I can opt to put on the editing screen. I guess instead of buying up packs at .99 cents tou can subscribe to the Plus option, I vouch for doing that because some of these effects are frickin awesome.
Crashes
by DreDay48 on 2011/08/22 03:55
Seems like such a cool app. I've been wishin that my modern photos could somehow end up looking retro, and I'm always looking for ways to make them seem more old fashioned. This app seemed like a great way to mess around with my photos like that. But it crashes every time I try to work on a photo...and nothing is saved so I have to start again. I would love a fix for thuis, and then I'd be able to highly recommend it. Fun, cool, and with sweskme choices for messing with pics, but 1 star since it doesn't work :(
No way to delete photos
by badkitty_ on 2013/02/17 17:34
This app is missing several important functions. First, it shows the last photo that you worked on. But it does not offer you the option of deleting that photo from that area. Nor, in fact, is there any Delete Photos option. Second, there are no key functions such as remove red eye, erase (if you want to erase part of your photo), etc. I was really looking for ways to manipulate my image, not just lay filters on top of it. Third, I merely touched the crop tool and it immediately applied it to my photo without me giving it permission to. It also is a one-size-fits-all crop tool. You do not get to choose a size on your crop: it does it for you. And there is no undo feature on the crop.
Am not really impressed....
by brogreggblues on 2011/12/31 07:44
Pixlromatic as the name states in itself "matic" like automatic: simple and easy. I found the app simple and easy to use. Uploading or taking pictures straight from my camera or camera roll. The thing I don't like about this app is that its effects work well with good quality photos, but lag with lesser quality. The effect seems to be on an invisible sheet of ice or glass, making the photo look fake, or edited. The number one point of "editing" a photo is to make it look natural but not be natural.....also not impressed that the didn't keep the cool interface as the online pixlromatic has...
Fantastic update!
by TyzorTyler on 2014/10/05 21:32
I've used this app for years, and the most recent update adds almost all of the features I've thought to myself it needed. All my previously purchased kits are easily added again, but now I can pick and choose what items in each add on package that I want to install. Don't like a specific filter? Disable it!! The only thing missing is I'd like it to integrate directly to my Photos app with the new "other" editing feature. Five stars. Thanks, Autodesk!!
Doesn't save your pictures, which makes it pointless!
by Tiffklin on 2012/02/13 18:37
So at first I really loved this photo app... I loved the different options. Every other photo and video app will save your pictures to your camera roll, well not this app. Once you take the picture an finish it doesn't save it... It is insane to have an app that doesn't save your pictures. I am sad that I liked this app so much at first, because I lost several pictures because I thought it saved to my phone like every other single app!!!!! I emailed the company and they said that not all users want their pictures saved, freedom of choice????? Who doesn't want to save their pictures.
Sizing
by MeeshFrack on 2013/05/15 16:14
I adore this app. My biggest problem is that when you save your edited photo it saves too big to use it on Instagram. I've been able to save this by taking a screen shot of the final photo, only problem with that is the app has the photo hanging off a line with brown clips... Which is cute, but, ruins the top of the photo... Which sometimes you can't crop out. I think users would benefit from 2 things... The option to save for Instagram, and/or being able to save the pic with out the brown clothing line type clips
Help??!?!!!?!
by 📷📷📷📷❤ on 2012/05/20 11:15
I used this app prior to its recent updates and it was perfect👌. However, I am now experiencing 2 problems. First, when I attempt to choose a picture to edit, it is soooo slloooowwwww. Second, when it FINALLY selects my picture and it is time to edit and use the effects... Exits out and I have to start all over!! IRRITATING! Nonetheless, despite all my problems with this app I still give it 4/5 stars because it does a wonderful job and edits my picture beautifully! But can something be done about these problems? 😒

by senor muffypants on 2011/12/25 22:54
As a photographer I am always looking for apps that will make great photos even better. There are some apps I really like, and then there is this app, which I absolutely love! This is one I have recommended to friends who are also now addicted to it. Easy to use, fun, awesome and unexpected outcomes that turn even the dullest pics into gems.
