very fun
Awesome app but with one annoying aspect
by M.NTHE on 2021/04/17 18:28
I love this app and use it to edit all my photos and haven’t found a better alternative for years!!! But, a recent update has made it so annoying. Whenever I scroll down to edit a photo, as soon as I save it, the app takes me back to the most recent photo on my phone. This means if I have a couple of photos then edit that I took a while ago, I have to keep scrolling and looking for the photo after every single photo I edit which is a waste of time. I would really appreciate it if the app went back to when it stayed at the same range of the edited photo instead. Overall great app!
Share
by hgp01 on 2021/04/17 15:38
This app is amazing and I love it. However, the share link does not work. This might be because VSCO is a mobile app and does not have an affiliated website. Mobile Apps do not have the capability to direct http requests so sharing the current share link in a browser will not work. It re-directs to the mobile app in the App Store. It Would be awesome to see a website for VSCO.
Slow mo
by <3---- on 2021/04/17 03:48
I really like the app it has everything! But I wish the slow motion is for free I’m having trouble finding good slow motion apps and this is the only one that has good slow mo. Please.

DSCO
by happyyyyyyyyyyyyyyygalll on 2021/04/16 09:50
I guess now you have to pay in order to do a DSCO which I think is unfair and kinda dumb. Also, the quality of the app is just different. I used to love it but since the update, not so much!
not even fun anymore...just stupid
by meep meep🥺🚗 on 2021/04/16 08:03
i kinda liked it at first and it was fun and cool to use but i dont know if its me or the app itself but now when i go into vsco i cant even edit no more its like i could only do it 1 time and thats it...if i want to do more i have to do some stupid day trial nobody has time to pay for a app thats not even all that...its weird and unfair
Best app
by lahaa._ on 2021/04/16 02:15
Five starts because vsco is best app for photo editing. I’ve been using vsco for almost six years. But, now the quality is very low. :(
Plz

Thanks for taking away manual mode
by Which nickname is not taken???!!! Please~ on 2021/04/15 07:24
I’ve used this app for years because of the manual mode give me control like using a DSLR. Thanks for removing that special feature. Update: Thanks for turning it into a PNS camera app.
Garbage doesn’t work
by el dominguero on 2021/04/15 04:51
I pay premium in , updated the app and it still won’t even start, I have free space on my phone and everything and the app won’t get pass the first loading screen .
Stop with the updates!!
by Hieidi on 2021/04/14 23:46
No journals, DSCOs are no longer free, messages keep being moved around, please stop. The app is becoming difficult to navigate &amp; I&#39;m less inclined to use it when you take away all the good features.
Deactivation/ Site Quota Reached
by Lucile32 on 2021/04/14 14:01
I deactivated my vsco not too long ago, my account is still active but whenever I try to log back in on device I get the “Site Quota reached” message. I can view my feed but all my pictures are gone. How can I get them all back? I’ve trued nearly everything. The support team hasn’t managed to reach out to me since everything was moved online. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
wont work!
by sarah bbbbbbbb on 2021/04/14 01:37
I love how my vsco gets to decide for itself when it wants to open the app and when it doesn’t 😍. now it won’t even load! just a black screen and then glitches out of the app completely.
video exports are dark. stop making it worse.
by Christne :-D on 2021/04/13 23:06
you keep making things worse. the cropping is all flipped around. video exports are dark and low contrast compared to how they show in the app. get a grip — people pay for this! obviously I have the newest update. apple auto updates these days anyways. please give your paying customers actual responses or make actual changes. we’re approaching a year of bad business from VSCO!
Bring back journals
by instagramplsgivememydraftsback on 2021/04/12 19:25
I Don’t know about the staff at vsco, but I personally like compiling certain photos into a folder with a theme to share my experiences. Still do not understand how removing journals is forwarding an app hinged on creative expression but that’s just me
Love hate relationship
by AshleyMonBanks on 2021/04/12 12:31
I’ve had VSCO for many years in order to edit the pictures I post on Instagram and my food pictures that I post on my Yelp account. There are a lot of pictures that were saved in my drafts that were no longer in my camera roll and that I didn’t post on VSCO. The day I got the notification that they updated the app and that if you delete the app you’re drafted pictures would also be deleted, my heart dropped. But I was like okay, no problem, I just won’t delete the app... until I had to. Just this morning I went to edit my food pictures like normal and it WOULD’NT LET ME. I tapped the plus sign to start an edit, nothing. I closed the app and opened it back up, nothing. The only solution was to delete and reload the app. I KNEW I would lose all my drafted pictures but I was praying I didn’t. But as soon as I signed back in they were all GONE. Years of pictures just deleted all because the app malfunctioned and I had to redownload it. Yeah I’m still going to use the app but that update was dumb and super inconvenient.
Great
by Paris4President on 2021/04/12 05:00
Great
love VSCO
by Powerful oz on 2021/04/12 04:37
Used VSCO for years and absolutely love it. Sadly the journals are no longer offered via phone app which is where a lot of my work was shown at. This doesn’t mean I’ll stop using the app as it is still amazing but I wish the journals were still offered
Advice
by aaliyha1938 on 2021/04/11 20:28
So as I go through VSCO I think a cool improvement would be allowing to archive the things you post! You may not like it at the time but then end up wanting to make it pop up again or you wanna delete it but don’t want it to be gone forever!!
Eeew
by hehe1746823 on 2021/04/11 20:23
Absolutely garbage why do you always have to pay for everything it’s so dumb I can’t even edit anything without it saying would you like to sign up for a seven day trial
Messaging
by 783962:) on 2021/04/11 16:17
I love VSCO, there’s no liking or commenting. The only thing that I don’t like about VSCO is you can’t send pictures in your DM’s or private conversations with people. Could you add pictures in your DM’s in your next update. That would be much appreciated!!

Deleting photos from camera roll now deletes them from drafts???
by Olivia12341 on 2021/04/10 20:58
I love this app but now if I delete photos from my camera roll, it deletes them from my edited drafts??? I think vsco should go back to keeping drafts even if the original photo is deleted from the camera roll. If this is vsco trying to free up storage on the app, I think it’s a bad decision. They should allow people/their users the ability to delete photos from their camera roll without it effecting their drafts. If users want to use vsco as a separate storage for photos so they can delete from their camera roll that should be available. I don’t know what vsco was thinking or if others agree with me, but personally it makes me very wary to delete anything from my camera roll anymore.
There money hungry
by Jordan1234rr on 2021/04/10 17:42
So I don’t wanna buy the membership or the free trial but it’s trying to force me to do it and I just don’t like that it’s so annoying so sorry but I don’t think it’s worth it
With each update it gets worse
by Strawberrystrrsh on 2021/04/10 16:10
After the update that gave us a separate workspace to work directly from our camera roll, this app has gone downhill. Photos won’t download at all or if they do they download wrongly cropped or at the wrong orientation. Would not recommend.
Where is my Journal??

DSCO
by nikkibambiii on 2021/04/10 08:50
Why would VSCO get rid of the free DSCO feature? It was one of the best features but now you have to pay to use it. Is there any way VSCO would make that feature free again? Otherwise just another ruined app.
The new update🥺
by MissSamanthaDavis on 2021/04/10 06:30
I am really sad about the new update..in fact the photos i had in journal. They were really Important to me and if i would have known they were getting rid of it. And i am not sure why because the journal portion was my favorite part about this app. I would have tried to get these photos somehow..i am super sad..and a little angry. Because i don’t know how else i can get those photos i had organized and edited perfectly to a theme in my journal and now they are all gone... i really hate the new update. And i hate that they never warned or communicated with us first. ..
Impossible To Cancel
by steve sch777777 on 2021/04/10 02:41
I just signed up for VSCO. It turns out it just changes the lighting on your pictures. Even to do some thing as simple as blurring a face you need to pay extra. I tried to cancel. You can’t do it from the app. So they’re charging me $20 a year. And I can’t cancel. I tried to go online. They don’t except my ID and password.
Update made is difficult to use
by Avery Rosee on 2021/04/10 02:17
I loved using VSCO until the recent update. Now I can’t upload more than one photo at a time. Also, sometimes the photos I edited disappear right after I edited them. I don’t understand why they had to change a good thing :/
Great potential but crashes..
by Ovotorres on 2021/04/10 01:06

by Bosses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! on 2021/04/09 02:30
i really wish i could chose 0 stars.the reason? every time i click on something it says sign up for membership i try anything it says that i can’t even EDIT because it won’t let me pls fix this and maybe i’ll rate this differently i can’t even edit because the free filters don’t even show up instead it shows the recommended which is not for free then it won’t let me click anywhere else to look at other free filters pls fix this also every time i click on a filter the get a membership add shows up then there’s an x but once i click the x nothing HAPPENS except for the add disappears and it won’t even show me more free filters EVEN THE FREE APP WONT WORK FOR ME :(
Why???
by Apanda10000000 on 2021/04/08 23:33
I like this app, except for the people it recommends to me. I follow Republican posters and Christian posters and other than that people I know personally. But for some reason this app recommends accounts that have highly in inappropriate content, such as girls taking mirror shots of them wearing underwear and crop tops, and pedephiles that have hate posts for jesus! This is disgusting, I want this to end immediately. This is making me hate this app, and I will most likely delete it if accounts like this are still being recommended to me.
come on guys
by emma(youre favorite) on 2021/04/08 22:53
i love vsco, it’s a great social platform that pushes creativity and fun instead of comparison, but ever since the new update i’ve been super bummed that they removed dscos!!! i know they have it on the premium but they don’t even look the same??? come on guys bring it back

You need a membership to edit anything I don’t know why I wasted my time downloading this.
Like, why?..
by Jesus Loves You 123 on 2021/04/08 02:10
This app is famous for what exactly? I’ve tried so many times to copy the exact settings as others have on their pictures that I’ve found on several applications, and it’s never even slightly similar. Even if I choose the closest color for a background from the photo I’m referencing from... And practically all of the filters have to be paid for... So yeah, I’m not a fan and idk what the hype is all about.
The subscription fee is? Ah, you don’t say.
by seasparrow2 on 2021/04/08 00:23
Great app. Strange that it doesn’t say how much the subscription fee is. It just says after your 7 day free trial you will be charged “A subscription fee.” That feels shady, or at the least a bit deceptive. Please come clean. Like Movifone, why don’t you just tell us the subscription fee you will charge us?
Eh...
by mrsyoung on 2021/04/07 18:36
I don’t really like how you need to pay just to edit. That’s all I got to say 🙂
Bring back old layout/DSCO
by Idontneednonicknamebuddy on 2021/04/07 17:45
This use to be my all time favorite app. I love the social media aspect without the actual likes and comments. But I am so disappointed that they made DSCOs membership only, it was a huge part of the app that I loved, I could add in little gif like things to keep memories and now that feature is paid only :( Additionally, the new set up is awful. You can only add in one photo at a time to edit, where as before you could add in as many as you wanted. Please just change everything back to the way it was before!!!
Best app!!!

Good app needs improvement
by SadieB13 on 2021/04/06 16:34
Great app but it’s really unfortunate that you have to pay to be able to post videos. Other than that I love being able to share, repost and be creative!

New UI has really stifled my editing
by hippieherb on 2021/04/06 07:12
I absolutely HATE the new UI. I’ve been using VSCO for probably 7 years and it’s really disappointing how cumbersome editing has become. I am sadly, actively looking for new apps to replace this one.
Direct Messages
by PantyDropperUSA on 2021/04/06 03:09
Please fix the direct message issue. There is no logical reason to scroll through every single interaction that an account has received in order to view a DM.

frustrated
by Sammi1194719038wB on 2021/04/05 17:17
i have come to be disappointed by this app a lot lately with the new updates doing more harm than good but this error message is putting me over the edge. i always loved how accessible vsco was through instagram just by clicking the link in the bio the vsco profile appeared and i could happily scroll through pics but now every single time i click someone’s vsco link from their bio i get this message: “Error loading (null): A server with the specified hostname could not be found.” i refreshed vsco multiple times and have the most recent update yet this error still occurs. if it comes to be that you can no longer see someone’s profile through the link in their bio and are forced to manually type in their name hoping to find their account i’m literally deleting vsco and never thinking about it again. please fix this so i can continue stalking my ex’s new girlfriend ;)
Paying For DSCO?!
by Tabby(o^_^o) on 2021/04/05 13:58
You can no longer use the DSCO video maker. You have to pay for their membership to even use it, when it used to be free before. Rip off. You can only post photos now. 👎🏼

by jeffercortson on 2021/04/05 02:54
i wish you could set certain photos to private or at least have a way to retrieve deleted posts
It worked for a while
by Annathelia on 2021/04/04 20:53
I paid for the full version, which was worth it until it wouldn’t let me do basic things like add a border to the photo. When I clicked on the border function, it told me to get the paid version, so I went to do that and it showed that I was paid up for several months. There was no support who could help me so I cancelled my subscription, months later I was prompted to renew my subscription that I wasn’t even able to use.
Importing/exporting
by inkashlie on 2021/04/04 13:42
It’s really frustrating that I can no longer import a batch of photos, edit them, and export them. Instead I have to edit one, paste the edits onto the others and it asks to modify the originals. I want my originals to stay the same, not be edited. I want to be able to export them as a copy in a batch and the newer update doesn’t allow that. You have to either edit them one at a time which takes so long, or modify your original images. Please give us the option to save batches as copies. I’ve used VSCO since the beginning and this has been the worst update.

Why pay for DSCO??? Lameee!
by reptilectric97 on 2021/04/03 06:50
Just realized I can’t share my cool dsco gifs to my profile. This was the best feature VSCO had and making it available only to premium users seems like the app no longer cares about their old users like me - greedy developers. Not going to pay for a feature that used to be free! Make it free again no pun intended lol

i’ve used vsco for so long and i’ve always loved it because it was so calm and non toxic but these new updates are frustrating. the new blue icon...... is awful but it’s not just that..... my messages are below my notifications making it almost impossible for me to reach them and message people which is so super annoying. the new layout is also terrible. i just miss the old vsco.
disappointed
by grcie4 on 2021/04/02 14:28
honestly, i don’t care about the blue app cover. in fact, i kinda like it. whatever. what i DON’T like is vsco, the “free” photo and video editing app, making me pay to post DSCO’s. i guess i can understand the video thing and extra filters costing money (although i do think y’all should expand your free filters section bc you literally have hundreds yet only about 10-15 are free), but one of my favorite parts of the app was DSCOs. idk i’m just disappointed. i don’t know why y’all had to commodify DSCOs AND videos.
THIS IS ABOUT THE JOURNALS
by journals are on web version on 2021/04/02 12:58
Hello everyone, I know the journals feature has been taken off the app but from what I noticed it’s STILL ON THE WEBPAGE!! If you go one vsco through the web, it’s there!! So I’m sorry to everyone who’s pics got lost through the ridiculous update but try and see to find them on the vsco online page. Good luck!! (:

New app design

THAT BLUE! 😑
by jackiioh on 2021/04/01 21:18
The new blue app icon is horrendous. It is “blue screen of death” blue. So every time I look at it I have flashbacks to a crashed 90s windows platform. I am going to need to remove it from my Home Screen, if it doesn’t change ASAP.
new update is so inconvenient
by alexaleigh888 on 2021/04/01 15:39
i personally love vsco. however since the new update i have to scroll down through all my notifications ive ever gotten on the app to get to my messages, it seriously takes 5 minutes just to get to my messages . vsco please make a separate tab for messages or put them back at the top again. if you havent updated vsco, dont.
its eh
by h.marshalllll on 2021/04/01 15:19
i love vsco, i think it is a great app. But the new change to the activity being at the very top and the messages being at the very bottom makes it very annoying and i think it should be switch back to its original way.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it
by Christyxox on 2021/04/01 14:23
A perfect example of that is this app. Also the royal blue icon color is gross. Nobody in their right mind likes royal blue.
Change it back 🙄
by I love Nizaara on 2021/04/01 13:11
How does this app get significantly worse with every update? First they delete journals permanently which made me lose years of photos. The blue icon looks terrible and literally why would they put dms at the bottom i have to scroll for so long and half the time it just glitches and i cant see them

What’s wrong with the other app icon???
by WWF Addict Too on 2021/04/01 04:06
I love vsco. Don’t get me wrong butttttt the white app icon was so much more aesthetic and just nicer to look at in general. However now it’s blue and it’s just not attractive. So is it ever going to go back to normal??
Sinking ship
by Beiwbdjwkdndbwhjwjd on 2021/04/01 03:03
First you take the ability away to make dsco and post them, and then you create an ugly app icon? This app is going downhill so fast. We couldn’t upload our own videos before, now we can’t upload ones we took ourselves! Lightroom will be used from now on.

BRING BACK THE JOURNAL FEATURE!!
by theyoutubelord on 2021/04/01 02:33
Really love this app I’ve been using it for years but my favorite feature is gone from iOS!! To anyone else who misses the journal, I found out you can access it by safari.. wish it was still in the app I had memories inside each journal for years and before it disappeared I was still in the process of adding photos. :/
Disappointed

My Journals are gone
Good news bad
by ccandkk1010000 on 2021/04/01 00:13
The new update is great but I hate the blue color on the front If you would change that that would be great!
Why is it blue
by Rina102 on 2021/03/31 23:59
Why is it blue now I don’t like it
Cool app but...
by FactJack on 2021/03/31 21:10
WHY IS IT BLUE?!? SOMEONE PLEASE ANSWER!
Don’t like the blue
by -alexa-617 on 2021/03/31 20:33
Please change the icon back to white. I really really really do not like the bright blue icon in my screen, everything else is fine just change it back to white! This app is about aesthetically pleasing photos and visuals, so why would you change the color?
the color?! 😳🤢🤮
by Gymnastics gurlll on 2021/03/31 20:25
pls change the icon color back. the blue is simply not it 😳☝🏻
The icon color
by Cqfang on 2021/03/31 20:10
The blue really hurts my eyes
update
by mrs.1266 on 2021/03/31 19:47
it’s a good app! i really love it. i just wanted to mention the new update. whenever i try to access my direct messages, it keeps loading my activity of people favoriting/reposting my images and i end up having to go through my following list to view the direct messages. that’s the only problem i’ve really had with this app! thank you for reading.
I do not like the new app cover
by Bellababyballer24 on 2021/03/31 19:37
One of the main reasons that I loved vsco was because of the nice relaxing white app cover. Now it just is ugly to look at because it is so obnoxiously blue. I do not like this new icon picture and will not use the app until you change it back! Thanks but I do suggest changing it back or to something different. Would give 0 stars to this new app cover but that’s not an option. Sincerely, disappointed
Love the app, but please add this feature!!
by natalie k anderson on 2020/08/16 23:49
I’ve been using VSCO for many years now and I love it—their presets are amazing and the “look” VSCO has mastered even persuaded me to upgrade to the full version. I really love being able to create journals, which brings me to my next point: please please PLEASE (i’m literally begging u) create a feature that allows owners to download images from their journals. I ended up creating a bunch of journals with some of my favorite edited photos, then lost my phone (and with it my artist studio) and as a result, I no longer have access to downloading the edited versions. While I sometimes do copy and paste edits, I typically make small individual changes and to go through the entire process for each journal would take hours. Please make this option available—it wouldn’t even have to be for public use, but at least give owners of the photos the option. I would be so appreciative! Otherwise I have 0 complaints and suggest it to anyone who enjoys photography.
It’s cool
by helloooooiooo76544788 on 2020/05/18 18:05
I really enjoy vsco, it’s a fun app I know many people who wish there were comments and likes things that normal social media apps have but I don’t mind, it has good filters but I wish there were more things for free. Don’t get me wrong this app has a lot of free things, but personally I’d love to have the filters the membership offers, but I don’t feel like paying money for it since I don’t use it to often. Just a suggestion. I ,however, do really enjoy the free Dsco feature I love taking short clips and I like how that’s free, it’s also a shame that I think you have to be a part of the membership to post videos. But unlike other apps this app has a lot more than just filters and has things like exposure and contrast to match what you think looks best on the picture there’s a large variety of things you can use to edit your picture, and I have to say they look amazing, I also like how you can repost it and favorite it, it’s different and I like how you can see the posts you have respirated, I also love the discover feature so you can see cool images that other people have posted I defiantly use the studio a lot to edit my apps, and I personally don’t own any social media but it’s cool that it can save to your camera roll and you can post it in other social media apps. Overall, it’s a great app and I would recommend it to a friend (I have actually)
new layout is HORRIBLE
by ggesoff on 2020/11/26 10:25
Not sure how new this layout is, if my app just now updated an old update or if this is brand new, but the new layout of the app is HORRIBLE. It is in no way, shape, or form user-friendly. I tend to dump a bunch of pictures into VSCO and then edit them, saving as I go. Now I have to scroll through my camera roll and I can only select ONE PHOTO at a time, I have to edit it right then and there, there’s no option to upload a bunch of pictures and then edit them later, and if I wanted to do that I would have to individually select each picture and “save to drafts” for every single one, scrolling back through my camera roll each time and THEN I can go to the SEPARATE “Drafts” tab to edit it. One of the worst parts of this whole feature is that if I select a picture and edit it right there in the “Studio - Camera Roll” tab, there is no way to save it to my camera roll AND save it to my drafts. So if I want to save it, I have to individually add it to my drafts, then change tabs, and edit/save it from there. If I want to edit it then save it from the Camera Roll tab, I have no way to go back and edit it later because it doesn’t go into my drafts, where it would normally be stored. I cannot emphasize enough, this update is HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE! I am so disappointed and know that VSCO can do much better — it’s as if no one thought these changes through. Very disappointed. Please go back to the old setup.
always room for improvement
by ya yeet b on 2020/06/26 12:25
I personally think VSCO is a great alternative to not only IG, but a great platform to share photos with other editors! I love the fact that there is no number associated with each post. All the social standards of having “a lot of likes/comments” is not an issue here. It allows creators to really just focus on expressing themselves through photo editing. I would like to say the same for video but it’s only available to members, which are those who can afford to do so; leaving those who aren’t as fortunate enough without that opportunity. I think making VSCO’s video feature free would really attract more users. In addition, I love how vsco can be easily linked to instagram (amongst other apps as well), but I dislike the fact that one must scroll and see every individual photo. I think if VSCO adapted a similar case to instagram, where photos are all in collages so that one can see multiple photos at once, rather than scrolling to view each individual one, it would be much more efficient. I guess being able to view VSCO through Instagram where one can see view multiple photos instead of scrolling down through every picture. Kind of like the desktop version of VSCO but on mobile (thru links). Overall, it’s a great app!!
Love it, just a couple easy fixes!
by Evananderson517 on 2020/10/27 06:06
VSCO is my go-to for chill photo sharing and editing. Super simple and elegant. Just a couple things to fix: - On iPad, the feed always glitches and is a nightmare to use. The photos on my timeline will be super blown up, rotation to portrait/landscape mode always confuses the app, and it takes several attempts at quitting the app and refreshing the feed to be able to see the entire photo. I usually end up just going on my phone to enjoy my friend’s photos. - Discovering and searching for friends could be better. I often find my friends have an account, which is exciting but also disappointing because I wanted to find them sooner! Possibly integration with other social media channels or better account discovery would be nice. I would also love to discover more creators and amazing photographers outside of what VSCO reposts! - I also want the ability to search in my followers/ing list- I get it’s not supposed to be like a hyper-social app but it would be nice to quickly search for my friend and see their latest photography. - The recipes feature is really confusing- every once in a while I’ll try to figure out how to set it and change it and such but I usually end up manually editing the photo.
Hate update from a while ago
by Nice and the best on 2019/07/02 00:22
I loved vsco but I hate the storing now because it all goes to my camera roll but that just takes up more storage I like to keep my pictures I take on vsco on vsco and the only way I can keep them if I delete it from my camera roll is if I post it but I don’t post every picture I take I like to just mess around with some of mine that I don’t want everyone to see. Please fix this so many people have complained about it and still it hasn’t been fixed I about want to use a new app but. I think you guys should also add the feature to make our vsco account private. Another thing that irritates me is that if I delete my vsco or something happens or say I got a new phone when I download vsco again all my old photos will be gone and yes I know I can save them to my camera roll to back them up but I hate having my vsco pictures on my camera roll I got vsco so my friends could see my fun pictures that I edit I don’t want to have to save my vsco pictures to my camera roll or another app it’s just better to have them on there. Please fix this it’s getting a little annoying and infuriating. I would prefer to not have to switch to another editing app when you guys can just switch it back to the original version you had it.
VSCO journals/ new update
by glittttttterbom on 2021/02/03 05:08
This used to be my favorite social media app because it has never been related to likes or the amount of followers you have. I have been using VSCO for over 6 years now and recently the quality of the app has GREATLY depleted. I am constantly having issues with cropping my photos. I woke up this morning to see my app had updated and that all my Journals were removed. I looked up online and found that VSCO has gotten rid of the journal section for good starting today. I have 6 years of photo journals on this app, that are now all deleted. They creators said this change happened because journals are not creative and they want to keep this a creative space. Well I have been using journals to group photos together like an online scrapbook. Along with that I am an artist and use them to keep track of my progress, so remind me why that isn’t creative enough for you? I am so upset by the removal of journals and all my hard work on keeping my journals up to date with good captions is now gone. The least they could have done was give a warning about this so I could have saved them before they got completely removed. And worst of all I tried contacting the VSCO team to see if there is a way to recover my journals and they have zero information on their website on how to get in touch. Not even an email.
Bad update
by Picture Press on 2021/01/02 20:39
Like many others that have written recent reviews, I have been a loyal VSCO user for years now and have the paid membership. I used to love this app, but the new update is super confusing. I liked uploading a bunch of my favorite photos into the studio and then batch editing. It used to be so easy, but now it’s very convoluted and hard to copy paste edits across photos and make sure they are all consistent before saving a copy to my camera roll. Please revert and listen to your user base. :( Update: maybe I am missing something but I HATE that it now asks me to “modify photo?” and then saves over the raw photo in my camera roll with the applied edits. I like keeping my raw photos separate from edited because as editing styles change I know I always have the original preserved for use at a later date. In addition, there appears to be a weird bug where an edited photo looks different in the studio then when you actually open it in edit mode. The last version of VSCO was perfect; please please please revert. I’ve had to switch to the Lightroom app because I hate this update so much. I assume VSCO is trying to save money because server space for everyone’s photos and edits was too costly. I would rather pay more for the old app than deal with this new update. Please fix, how many bad reviews will it take?
Suggestion for paid members
by Perripenguin on 2020/06/19 00:30
I LOVE the app and I absolutely love the entire platform, however as a paid member I would like the ability to sign into my account online on my laptop and edit photos from there. I feel like paid members would be able to get even more from the platform as this would allow members to see colors and filters more clearly and allow members to make even better/smarter editing decisions. I went to do this one time because when I printed out the photo after I edited it, and it didn’t turn out the way I thought it would but yet it looked great on my phone app. I’ve used the app less because of this only because I don’t feel like I’m getting a true editing experience. It only makes sense to me, as you can access VSCO on a computer already and can log in and even browse around! You’d think I could at least edit the photos I’ve uploaded under my profile before I post them on the VSCO feed. I will more than likely cancel my subscription and find another app that will allow me to make edits on my laptop as well. Giving it 3 stars for now until VSCO gives paid members a little more freedom outside of the app itself.
Disappointed
by Melody Joy Dawn on 2020/11/29 18:35
I’ve really enjoyed using VSCO through the past few years, but recently it’s really been frustrating. With its most recent update, if you don’t have premium you can’t post DSCOs like we used to be able to. And i haven’t been able to post journals since this past summer (2020). The journals just sit in my journals section and the cover photo is blank and they refuse to actually post. As of this past day, i’m not able to post or even edit any photo without the app completely freezing up and not responding to touch. i’ve opened and closed the app as well as deleted and redownloaded the app to try and fix these bugs but it has not helped at all. Please come up with a solution. Also with the recent update, whenever i want to save a photo to camera roll from my drafts, it takes me to the camera roll section instead of just letting me stay in drafts. then when i want to go back to drafts, i have to scroll every single time back down to where i left off with editing. this makes batch editing really frustrating as well. i have expressed to my friends how upsetting this new update is, and they’ve agreed with me. Please revert back some of these changes.
Verification Troubles
by chan !! on 2021/01/04 06:02
It’s an amazing editing app that allows for everyone to make their own custom adjustments and even gives them a good selection of pre- made filters that allows the user to have a good glimpse of what the app can do. The whole feed and layout is similar like to Instagram but still has that unique feature and qualities that makes it different than the- said app. Although some troubles in trying to claim the account of others and for yourself, is quite hard as you cannot verify your account unless the email that you put in, is correct. The problem with this issue, is that many users change emails and even get new phones (completely) and loose access to their old email for them to actually verify the account. Without adding the feature for them to change their email or even add their new email/ phone number, they can’t verify their account and edit their account (such as account name, edit the bio, links, etc). If VSCO adds the feature of letting the users claim their account in different ways, then it’s better for them, altogether.
Love love love...but wait!
by Ashton McHale on 2018/07/18 21:35
I absolutely love VSCO and use it for all of my photography. The range of creativity, inspiration and options it provides is incredible. My only complaint is that when I’m scrolling through my feed, I always see tons of content that I like and that I want to republish. However, I always have to slow down while doing this and can’t mass-republish things without getting an error message! Maybe devs you’ve heard this complaint before and refuse to change it because you want users to pay more attention to others work and not just fly through it (at least that’s why I think you haven’t changed this), but I really wish you would! Content can still be enjoyed even if one goes through it quickly. And believe me, I know that many would enjoy the content that they see much more if they were able to republish and favorite things faster without error. Thanks!
Layout/design is terrible
by l;fkj asl;fjasl;fj as[ovnuaeop on 2021/03/02 17:54
Please god put it back to how it was. This camera roll/drafts setup is SO frustrating. Destroys workflow. The gallery used to be a rough draft area, I could view and edit everything together in one place. If images were finished they got posted to vsco and/or saved to my camera roll. (I need to keep the original and the edit.) This new setup ruins my ability to do anything I need. I don’t want vsco modifying any image in my camera roll and I need to be able to do group uploads to a rough draft/working space, I need to be able to copy/paste/small tweak edits over a group of photos. All now nearly impossible. This is infuriating. The design changes have limited creativity and stifled any semblance of a workflow. Pleas tell me how you would suggest I work on 12 images at one time as a group. Your introduction of copy paste edits was lifechanging when it debuted (esp for an app). Also—NOBODY wants to make a “moNtaGe” of tiny images on a phone screen. EVERYBODY wants to have beautifully edited single images. This has always been vsco’s strength. Please facilitate this process instead of muddying the waters and forcing all this extra baggage that only weighs down what I’m here for and what vsco, I thought, was created to do.
Hate the update!
by zgrooms on 2019/06/24 00:05
I used to absolutely love this app. There wasn’t a quality I didn’t like about it. I never actually had an account, or the paid version, and still loved it! I use it to edit my photos for my blog. Recently, after updating the app I noticed a change to the way photos are stored. If I delete a photo in my camera roll, it deletes the edited version from the app. I absolutely hate this change. I use the app to edit my photos before posting, but love to be able to go back and review old photos from the past. After editing and posting on Instagram I always delete them from my camera roll because I don’t like to have a ton of food pictures on my phone. I always loved that I could go back in the VSCO app and pull up old photos to reuse on my blog if I wanted to. Now that the photos delete themselves when I remove them from my camera roll I am no longer able to store them in the VSCO app. This is super frustrating, and makes me wonder whether I want to continue using the app to edit my photos. I usually never review things, but I wanted to share my thoughts in hope that this is something that can be changed.
Love it, but it could be better imo
by P. C. O. on 2018/11/21 16:50
I use this to edit all my photos and I love it, I&#39;m also a VSCO X member and I definitely recommend it for everyone. But, I would like it if you guys made the highlight option to not only take away highlights but to enhance them as well, or present an option where I can select what portions of my image I want highlighted (I’d prefer this more), and the same for shadows. Also, I’d like to be able to add presets to DSCO, not just the ones you offer as soon as I take it, because the way it functions now I’d have to save the DSCO, then re upload it to VSCO, which I find tedious. I’d also like the option to turn other videos I have into DSCO. Oh, also for DSCO, I want to be able to save it to my VSCO library, instead of only being to save it to my phone or uploading it to my VSCO feed, and make it longer, DSCOs are so short. And it would be cool if you introduced options that are fun like chromatic aberration, or vintage scratches and dust. If you guys had all these things I wouldn’t touch another app lol. The app’s dope though, keep it up.
Disappointing update
by amc135 on 2020/12/22 02:38
I’ve used and loved vsco religiously since the days of the old app and am a vsco x subscriber. I know this probably won’t be read or changed back, but I’m really, really disappointed with the new layout. I usually throw a bunch of photos into vsco, edit some of them, then save the ones that come out the best. I reeeeeally don’t like having to edit right from my camera roll then save as a draft if I don’t want to save it back to my camera roll. I do so much comparison and tweaking in the app before I save the ones I love, and this new workflow is not conducive to that at all. I also absolutely hate that copying and pasting filters overrides the photo in my camera roll — who in the world would want to do that?? Overall, this is just mega disappointing. I’m really tired of companies fixing things that aren’t broken and not listening to consumers, so hopefully you hear my two cents. Thanks for making an app I’ve loved for many, many years. I would hate to abandon it now, but the workflow is not sustainable for me in it’s current state. Edit: copy-pasting the same response on everyone’s review is not a good look...😒
Frustrating Storage Due To Update
by well this is 4 stars on 2019/08/20 01:11
I absolutely love vsco &amp; it’s filters &amp; I’ve been using them for years. One of my favorite things was I could import photos into my vsco studio &amp; delete them from my camera roll. Whenever I had the time, I could go back into my vsco studio &amp; get around to editing. Sometimes I’d save it to my camera roll if I was ready to share/post somewhere, but most of the time I didn’t. Keeping it in my vsco studio until I needed it just kept everything organized and I could easily keep track of my photos and edits. However, this new update deletes photos from the studio if the original is deleted from the camera roll. This has only caused frustration and an immensely unorganized mess of photos in my camera roll. I don’t want everything there, I don’t always need everything exported from the app. And what if I accidentally delete the original? The edit I worked so hard on is gone. This update has only made me use vsco less, and other editing apps a whole lot more. The storage did not need to be fixed, it was functioning perfectly! Overall, this update was extremely upsetting.
non app owner views
by dissapointedperusual101 on 2019/01/05 08:06
Because my viewers of my vsco web page without the application on their phone can only view a certain amount of my content, I have decided to no longer focus on my vsco, which was my highest prioritized platform of social media, and now only focus on my instagram and Facebook. I enjoyed having my vsco as a personal blog type app available for my viewers to look at my page even if they didn’t have the app. Now since vsco requires those to have the app to see all content I must shift my focus to a more easily accessible platform. I wanted to share my art and more personal side but don’t want to be limited because an application wants more users. I thought vsco supported everyone’s differences and sharing those with the world but now I see their focus on strictly obtaining users and making money off of them. This makes me less inclined to utilize vsco and far less inclined to ever purchase again through vsco. Your app brand was different and used to focus on the individual and now you’re just another one of the others, focusing primarily on money and less of the freedom of the user.
I miss the old vsco
by MarieMBI302 on 2020/05/28 18:17
VSCO is a huge fan of fixing stuff that isn’t broken. It started with the user interface, then with the editing tools themselves. Vsco used to be a sleek, simple, alternative high quality photo editing app, and now that it’s more mainstream (and slowly turning into Instagram imo) it’s gotten bad. The functionality of the highlights tool is a great example of a well-intending update actually making something worse, and there’s a bug with the grain tool that’s actually been there for a long as I remember. They also removed the web uploader so now to get photography on my computer to the app (which can only be used on the iPhone btw) I have to use “google photos or iCloud.” Thanks but if I wanted my photography to be 240p I would’ve done that already. Also not a huge fan of how often the paid version of vsco is shoved down my throat. Vsco used to be my favorite photo editing app and posting platform but it’s just gone down the tube. Very sad. Don’t get me wrong, the community is still great and the filters remain unmatched, but the other issues are enough to reduce my usage.
out with the new, bring back the old!
by averykiira on 2020/11/30 13:17
Listen VSCO, I’ve loved you forever—since 2013 to be exact. The only reason I’ve even added a second star is for the loyalty. This new layout feels like a slap in the face to longtime users. One thing I’ve always loved about your product is that it has been a constant in a world of changing (for the worse) social media’s. I feel like over the years you guys have done an excellent job updating and keeping the app fresh while apps like Instagram have continued to become more monetized and consumerism-focused. While VSCO has continued to be about the photos/documenting experiences. The new layout has shifted the perspective making it less user friendly and more about being corralled to use the member features. I’ve used VSCO for free for so long that truthfully, I don’t feel mad about now paying for the app to continue to use a longtime favorite, DSCO’s, but don’t make me suffer through a entire new app surface. It doesn’t feel natural or easy to use anymore. I used to love editing/posting on VSCO. Now it feels like a chore. 🥺 Please let us restore old versions. Please.
Great app but i have these inconveniences
by lightbluepanda on 2020/08/01 23:18
I’ll start off by saying that this is a great app. I love using it to edit and I especially love how no one can see each other’s numbers of followers, likes, republishes, etc. It’s a free and positive space for me to post whatever I want without having to stop and think about what other people’s opinions of it may be. There’s no negativity on the app. The reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because of the update. I don’t like how when I delete a picture from my camera roll, it gets deleted from the studio as well. Maybe I don’t want the edited pic on my camera roll anymore but i do on the studio. Perhaps i’ve changed my mind and i want it back. Having it stored in my studio was great for me. Also, I liked being able to click on the home buttons on the bottom to go back to the top of the page I’m on. I can refresh quicker that way, but now I have to scroll back ALL the way to the top? I find that very inconvenient. Please go back to how it was before.
Great...but membership activation is weird
by MiniPodcaster❤️ on 2020/05/20 16:01
amazing app. i enjoy editing and how it has no ads and no followers or likes or how no weirdos can contact you. but on the downside, i purchased a membership and it won’t show up. i have tried logging in to both accounts that i have, and neither of them has the membership. i am worried that i have just paid $20 for nothing. please help! EDIT: i had to renew the vsco membership to use it. slightly confusing and frustrating but the guide had pictures. the vsco x is amazing, but you should be able to post vids. also, a guide to what each tool does would be nice. (e.g. exposure does blank while simultaneously reducing the blank). in all, an AMAZING app. 10/10. better than afterlight as well. 2ND EDIT: please please let me turn my dms off! i don’t want people asking me what i use to edit my pics! also just for safety reasons, u should let us have a private account!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!
good
by Goldstarrockstar on 2020/06/22 17:22
the app is very very good. there are a few complaints or suggestions, however. most of the presets that will transform your pictures are part of the membership. VSCO close to never adds more FREE presets. i think that it is important to have more ways to express yourself and edit without having to pay. the few color presets are not as good and pristine as the ones that require a subscription. i am not suggesting that the entire app needs to be free, although that would be nice, VSCO still needs a way to make money. the videos and the montage effects should stay premium just because they are very cool features that should have the privilege of being premium. i am really just asking for more color pristine presets. other than that the app is very good. it runs smoothly and isn’t too hard to get the hang of. it requires creativity, but that is the point. overall, a very clean, good app.
best app ever
by Ewilson12345678🍕🎤🐳 on 2018/07/04 11:57
i am no artist. but ever since i got vsco it has made me want to be more creative and think outside of the box. the things people can publish on vsco are always incredible and even if it is just words they are always the most relatable things. my favorite part about vsco is that you can’t comment. people that post on instagram always have the fear of getting a certain amount of likes and who’s going to comment something, but vsco isn’t like that. you can be yourself. no one knows how many followers you have. no one knows how many likes you get and rebublishes (kinda like a retweet if u don’t have the app yet... get it though!) but anyway, thank you vsco for being my favorite app and i just have one recommendation; the posts that people publish saying things like “get this to 6 million republishes for my best friend to stop smoking or for me to do something, etc.” is it possible that the people who own there own accounts can see an actual number of the ppl who republish and like? not because any cares on vsco but because of purposes like that one. i’d like if nobody can see it but myself, just so i don’t have to count. even if this never happens, i wouldn’t be upset at all. i love the way vsco makes every person feel equal. it’s just a hastle counting when it could just tell you the numbers and only you. if you read this, thank you so much!! rock on!!
Love this app, literally more than any other app
by littlegrumpytrout on 2020/12/26 14:06
I have been using this app since 2013 and it only gets better. There have been features over the past years that I’ve had to get used to but overall I love it. I use it everyday. I think the idea behind this app is absolutely perfect. This app has given me the courage to explore my own creativity and open up to sharing it. I don’t worry about how many people notice my photos and I love that comments and likes are not a feature on this app. Every feature from the wide variety of presets, DSCO (ability to make your own gifs), taking videos AND being able to edit them and participating in challenges BRINGS ME JOY AND HAPPINESS! I highly suggest joining the VSCO membership, it’s worth every penny! Thank you so much to the creators and VSCO team for creating and continuing to update and evolve the VSCO app. It’s made an impact on my life so THANK YOU!
I hate the recent change.
by mvalencia_ on 2019/06/09 01:32
I have been using this app for years now so I finally gave in and decided to purchase a membership. I have loved it....until now. I hate the recent update. Now if you delete a photo in the camera roll then it is automatically deleted in the vsco app, this is extremely frustrating. I was unaware of this recent change. Which is odd because I use this app frequently. It was only brought to my attention once I tried searching the internet to find a way to recover the photos I lost. This new feature is an unnecessary change and I hope it is only temporary. Until then take my experience as a word of caution or just use the free features. If this was a feature Vsco had during the time I considered purchasing a membership, I would have taken my money elsewhere. Now that the change has been brought to my attention I will be more careful of what photos I delete. If it wasn’t for the new feature I would have rated this app five starts but no use in doing that if a photo editing app deletes my photos automatically.
Uninstalled
by Estelle DeRose on 2021/02/27 17:31
This used to be my favorite app to edit photos but now it’s glitchy and the constant updates don’t fix anything. They have changed a bunch of features and now the app is complicated and confusing to use. You can no longer upload photos, they edit them directly from your camera roll, so if you used to to use the “copy edits” function like I did, when you go to copy an edit to an unedited original photo it will prompt you (on apple at least) asking for permission to “modify photo,” which means it will overwrite the original photo completely. If you paid for an entire year of VSCO premium filters, it will say that the filters are locked and wants you to pay monthly for them. I cannot edit my profile or like and save other creators pictures to my collection because it constantly tells me to verify my email...but I already did when I signed up, when I press the pop up button that says “click her to verify” it disappears completely. If I’m ever going to use VSCO again they need to completely overhaul the user interface and make it easier to understand as well as fix their various glitches.
Getting better but...
by bbyiia on 2021/01/15 09:48
I’m really glad you guys listened to our complaints so I really hope you continue to do so. You made it so our photos cloned in app again which is really great!!! But I noticed when trying to paste an edit on multiple photos in the cameral roll section you ask to modify the original photo which is something we do not want or care for. You only bring up that option when we mass select but you just make a normal copy when we individually select photos, so it’s really confusing. It’s also incredibly time consuming because if I have many photos to put the same saved edit on then I have to do them all individually... when the point of the saved edits feature is to lesson the time you spend editing in the first place. Please change this!!! Honestly speaking a lot of things you could do to better this app again is to just go back to some of your old features. You didn’t have to fix what wasn’t broken.
not lovin’ the update, man
by lea helena on 2019/06/09 14:59
this new update where it makes you either save or post edited photos, and delete the ones in your library when you delete them from your camera roll, makes everything way more complicated. what if you don’t want to post something to VSCO right away and then you have to go back to your camera roll, import to VSCO again and THEN post. i really like having all my edited photos on the app because it’s accessible for posting to VSCO, and likewise saving to camera roll when i need to. it would be a much better update if there was the option to save your edited photo to your VSCO library, alongside saving to camera roll or posting to VSCO, because not everyone posts all their photos, and not everyone keeps their photos in their camera roll. it would also be a lot better if there was an option before you delete a photo from your camera roll, to decide if you want to delete from your VSCO library as well. i love this app and use it literally all the time, but i’m really bummed by this update and it makes me want to use it a whole lot less.
Please switch back to old design!
by kenziek4 on 2021/01/16 03:55
This new design is all over the place! It’s so confusing! I liked the old design so much better. I liked how you could select all the photos/videos you were going to be working with and move them to the project area and work on them from here. This new design has me searching so much more for all the content I need and then when I save it, it still is somewhere random on my phone and not the first vid/pic in the line up. And my favorite feature was the copy and paste, it was so easy on the old design, this one I had to hunt for the copy and paste button and then I had to scroll for so long to find the pic I wanted to paste it on instead of having all my pics and videos selected in the project room like it use to be! Plus the background is black instead of white, it’s very hard to edit pictures with black light. Why did you guys change it? Like it was so unnecessary, this update is super lame and makes me want to not use this app. At least have the option for this new design or the old design, because I would be sticking with the old!
Amazing App But Buggy Notifications
by D3naaa on 2018/03/06 00:25
Okay, so this is literally my favorite app. I love how it’s based around art and photography compared to like Instagram that’s just about whatever. Another thing that’s better about this than Instagram is with insta, you’re constantly comparing yourself to other people’s accounts. How many likes do they have? How many followers? With VSCO, you don’t have that bc it doesn’t tell you. A+ to you guys. My only complaint is the messaging part. And I realize it’s new so I’ve been trying to give y’all credit and I’m sure you guys will fix it but a lot of times I don’t get notifications even though they’re turned on. Every person I message on there says the exact same thing and that it’s a constant problem. So if you guys could work on that, I’ll gladly change my review to 5 stars. I recommend this app to everyone. It’s wonderful and the community is great. I highly suggest downloading. If you plan on using messaging though, just keep checking them until it’s fixed.
Love it, but needs more for video editing!
by mcdancer5678 on 2021/02/06 22:10
I have been a user of VSCO since almost the beginning! I love the app so much so that I decided to buy the membership a year or two ago so I could edit videos and get even more effects! There’s so much to love about this app, but I do think that there is still room for improvement! I would love love LOVE to have more video editing features added to the app. A big reason why I don’t edit videos in it very often is because it lacks editing tools/effects for videos, in comparison to other apps. The “vintage” look is super popular right now and I would love to have a feature that allows me to make videos/pictures look like film, etc. I actually was debating getting the membership for the app Tezza because they have this feature. Obviously VSCO is an incredible app and one of my favorites, and I don’t want to switch, but I would truly love if they had more features, especially for videos!
This App Used to be Good
by adawngrace on 2021/02/11 19:01
I was paying for an annual subscription to VSCO and used it for all my photos— until recently. The app has been glitching like crazy in the last few months. I can’t crop photos the way I want, photos upload sideways and can’t be rotated, the app crashes while I’m in the middle of editing, etc. I thought VSCO would fix these problems with an updated version, but it continued to go on for months, which left me wondering what I was paying for. The app also doesn’t allow you to upload photos to edit into your VSCO gallery like it used to, but rather has all your photos from your camera roll automatically added, which is majorly inconvenient. It used to save photos directly into a VSCO folder in the Photos app, but now it only saves to camera roll, which makes it harder to find my edited pictures. Overall, I am very disappointed with the decline of this app which I’d been using for the last 7 years, and therefore will be looking for other photo editing apps to invest my money in.
Cool things to add!
by planet_claiire on 2018/08/06 21:32
Love this app with the VSCOX membership and everything, but I would love if y’all could add a Post Notifications feature that way I could make sure to see the posts I want to see when I don’t have time to scroll through my regular feed!! Also if y’all could add a way to create DSCO videos from live photo’s or videos in your camera roll that would be AMAAAAAZINGGGG!!!! I’m always forgetting to take DSCO videos and it would be the best thing ever if I could just create them from my past live photos and/or videos. Also I love how you can edit videos, but I wish that I could save the video without it exiting out and forcing me to start over with a new video. Sometimes I like to save the same video with multiple filters or with a few adjustments and I wish I could do this without having to screenshot all my previous settings so I don’t have to start all over. Being able to edit the video without it continuously playing on a loop would help this, but adding a feature where you could edit the video while its playing on a loop or paused at places of your choosing would be great too. Other than that, I LOVE this app and I can’t wait to see what y’all create in the future. Thank you for such an amazing app!!! (with a very reasonably priced subscription plan too!!!!) Thank you!!!!! - Claire
Love hate relationship
by AshleyMonBanks on 2021/04/12 12:31
I’ve had VSCO for many years in order to edit the pictures I post on Instagram and my food pictures that I post on my Yelp account. There are a lot of pictures that were saved in my drafts that were no longer in my camera roll and that I didn’t post on VSCO. The day I got the notification that they updated the app and that if you delete the app you’re drafted pictures would also be deleted, my heart dropped. But I was like okay, no problem, I just won’t delete the app... until I had to. Just this morning I went to edit my food pictures like normal and it WOULD’NT LET ME. I tapped the plus sign to start an edit, nothing. I closed the app and opened it back up, nothing. The only solution was to delete and reload the app. I KNEW I would lose all my drafted pictures but I was praying I didn’t. But as soon as I signed back in they were all GONE. Years of pictures just deleted all because the app malfunctioned and I had to redownload it. Yeah I’m still going to use the app but that update was dumb and super inconvenient.
Horrible new UI
by hi_itschristine on 2021/01/25 01:08
Latest design refresh is not intuitive and has made things much harder versus easier for mass editing, with little tutorial of how to use the new UI. I haven’t used vsco in a while and I couldn’t figure out how to upload multiple pics let alone 1 pic from my camera roll to edit. After finally figuring it out (you have to allow access to all photos - I had to delete and reinstall), you’re no longer allowed to select photos from your camera roll to edit. It instead accesses ALL your photos which means you have to scroll through all your photos each time. This has proven to be super frustrating since I’m downloading older photos to make a photo book. The UI is also super buggy. I’ve been a loyal user for the last 6 years and I may have to delete this app for the first time and try other photo editing apps.
FAVORITE APP EVER!
by alenepatel on 2018/08/16 04:52
Everything about VSCO is perfect. I use VSCO almost everyday and it’s so refreshing. I love the layout and how simplistic it is. I love how it isn’t very social unlike Instagram! Please don’t add in anything else social wise! The messages are a nice touch, but no comments please! That’s what makes it stand out in my opinion. There are a few glitches I’m sure you guys are working on, but I’d like to suggest a tiny feature that means a lot to me, and I’m sure other users as well— please add a “flip” photo feature in the editing tools selection. I like the way VSCO takes front facing camera pictures, but hate how my phones front camera flips the end result when I take a selfie with it. Please add a flip feature where I can flip a picture from left to right in the editing selection so it can be just like how it looks when I take one in the VSCO app directly.
Best photo editing/sharing app!
by Applover269 on 2020/09/27 01:52
Years ago, I found myself too concerned with likes and followers on Instagram. I deleted my account and soon after, I found VSCO. This app is exactly what we should be using. It’s all about posting photos you like and not having to worry about likes, comments, who unfollows you or anything of the sort. As advertised, this app is pro-content. Your followers on VSCO can interact by favoriting or sharing you posts, but only you can see who’s interacting, not the whole world. The free version is still more than adequate. I don’t have VSCO X, but I’m sure it is great. The filters and editing tools are extensive and contain just what you may need. You can also discover new ways to take and edit photos by looking at the discover page. I wish my discover page didn’t cycle the same photos repetitively, but that’s a minor issue.
Update is a total fail
by AnIndustryPrevails on 2020/12/27 06:32
I’ve used VSCO (even back when it was VSCO CAM) and have experience many updates. All of them were improvements and created a streamlined ease of use. Even as a professional photographer, VSCO beat out Lightroom in my ability to import photos I want to edit, make edits, paste edits to multiple images, make adjustments to specific images, then export those images for use on social media (both for business and personal). The UI was streamline and efficient over any other app. The new update is inefficient in every way that it was previously efficient. Editing is clumsy. Edit an individual photo? You can save that one to camera roll as a copy with your edits or save it as a draft. Once that edit is made you can copy and paste to multiple images, OVERWRITING THE ORIGINAL. This is like image file management 101, the basics, the fundamentals. Never get rid of your original file. I know, you’ll say “you can undo the edits in VSCO”. Yes, in a very difficult and time consuming manner. Don’t be so proud that you can’t admit you made a mistake with this new set up, take a step back and adjust!
Subscription Billing Without Subscription Service
by crgnewcomb on 2019/05/27 10:06
This app crossed over into why-pay-monthly/yearly-for-it territory the last few years with VSCO X, it’s $20 annual subscription that unlocks all the features in the app. The feature set is robust, but it doesn’t/hasn’t changed in ages, other than a few new monthly filters (how many do you really need?). I get subscription billing is the new model, but most services have a feature roadmap or similar. VSCO does not. It’s worth $5-10 once if you got everything the app currently offers, but definitely not $20 yearly for VSCO X. I should add I did pay for it last year, but once I neared the end I didn’t really see a reason to renew. I guess if you like the community and photo challenges: launched in second half of 2018, this is their most recent feature. Many other apps offer the photo editing tools for way cheaper (some even as a one time purchase). I just really don’t know what perks you’re getting by paying a subscription.
Questions for VSCO
by Bob Ross 🤠 on 2020/10/14 22:03
I love this app so much! It definitely is a way to show off my creativity and I spend a lot of time on it! I do have a few questions though- the first one would be that is there any way we can add an account so we don’t have to log out each time? I have a account where I post of myself and one where I post of things that I enjoy. It would be so much easier for me! Also is there anyway we can connect them to the same email? I don’t have more than one email. My last question would be is there any way you can add the number of our followers, reposts for each post, and favorites somewhere on our profile? It doesn’t even have to show other accounts the amount of our followers or reposts or anything to anyone, it would just be quicker and easier to see the number then count. Thank you!
i used to be such a big fan but newest update just isn’t it ://
by jdszfvjfw on 2021/01/10 06:22
i’ve NEVER written an app review but i am seriously so disappointed :,( i’ve been using vsco since it was “vsco cam” &amp; the whole social aspect of the app was not around yet. with the app’s growth in social aspect &amp; popularity i’ve continued using &amp; even paid for a vsco membership for 2 years. unfortunately, the newest update makes the app so unusable that i’ve already cancelled my subscription &amp; stopped trying to struggle through continued use. the inability to upload multiple photos into drafts is beyond inconvenient. many of my other favorite features like copying edits to paste onto other images have also become extremely tedious to navigate. this is not a matter of begrudgingly learning to use an updated app due to bias to what i’d already known; rather, too much of my go-to uses of vsco are simply no longer worth the hassle of completing according to the new formatting. as a longtime fan and user of vsco, it is not easy for me to turn my back on it, but i honestly would no longer recommend this app to anyone.
Newest update is a pain.
by BearVsBryan on 2020/12/11 17:12
I’ve been using VSCO for something close to 6-7 years. I used to love it for its batch editing functionality and streamlined user interface. Now the studio section is just confusing. I can no longer save a batch of edited photos to my camera roll. When I do save from drafts to camera roll, the correct edits aren’t applied and I end up with tons of useless photos. Some that are permanently edited. My business is now suffering because I’m unable to batch edit in a time efficient manner. Lots of back and forth searching for photos through my cluttered camera roll when I used to be able to just import what I wanted and none of what I didn’t. This direct from camera roll studio is just not working for me. I may have to just switch to another photo editing app after loving VSCO for so long. Hopefully something is done soon about this as it’s apparent I’m not the only one experiencing these headaches.
the most amazing app i have downloaded
by gwen5002 on 2021/01/10 06:33
vsco is an outlet for creativity and inspiration. Every time you open the app you never feel pressured to be something you’re not or to make something of yourself. Every time you open the app it’s a different experience and it’s really amazing. The vsco app has really helped me discover who I want to be and also regain certain parts of myself, the creative parts of myself, that I thought i had left behind. sometimes the app glitches or closes on me but i couldn’t care any less about that when i think about all of the other things it has to offer. vsco isn’t even just an app, it’s an online community and presence. it’s the complete opposite of any mainstream photo sharing social media like instagram. the edits and challenges offered allow you to play around and have fun.
🤔
by xSarahhSmiles on 2018/07/21 20:18
I’ve been using the app for years and it’s easily one of my favorites. The set up and layout is displayed nicely, and all the functions are easy to find and use. I’ve always liked all the different filters but never wanted to purchase them all individually, so when the subscription rolled out last year I was very excited! That being said, I would love if there could be more in depth tools(selective, curves, text, etc.), too often I find myself having to use another app for a few little things that I think would be great to have all in one place. I also wish you could chose to have a profile or not, simple because I don’t care much for the social aspect of the app, it doesn’t seem to run smoothly and no one really seems to interact in it so it seems ultimately pointless, great concept though! Can’t wait to see what else you guys over on the VSCO team roll out in the future.
Disappointed
by aminah_mck on 2020/12/20 07:15
Been using vsco for about 5 years now and I am thinking about canceling my subscription. This new update is difficult to navigate, especially for anyone who is getting into photography/editing photos. I don’t like that I can’t actually upload the images and I’m “editing” right from my camera roll. So it modifies the edits over the original in your camera roll. Not only that, but to edit a photo one by one, even if you copy and paste Murillo is time consuming and annoying. Also my images that I save into my drafts aren’t saving to my camera roll either, so I have to click each photo I want edited from the “camera roll” section. I’m really disappointed because I use vsco mainly for my personal work when I’m on the go. I use Lightroom as well but I liked the style that vsco gave to the photos. Unfortunately, I’m just going to spend some time making my own presets for Lightroom mobile similar to the ones I liked from vsco because I will be canceling. Very disappointed.
I love VSCO
by peteybot on 2019/06/29 20:30
I use VSCO for all of my mobile picture editing and I&#39;ve been using it for years! I&#39;d recommend VSCO to everyone who edits pictures. My only complaint is toward a product of a recent update. You guys released an update that deletes filtered pictures off the app once the original is deleted off the phone, I guess to save storage? This just isn&#39;t ideal for me. When editing a picture, VSCO is usually the final app I use in my process. When I&#39;m finished, I like to delete all progress pictures for storage purposes and only keep the final product. When I do this, my edited image is removed from VSCO, along with the recipe I used for it. This is an issue for me because I often use the same recipe for different pictures and it&#39;s annoying to have both an unedited image and the final product in my phone. I hope my rant made sense and I hope you guys could accommodate me. Much love otherwise ❤️❤️❤️
New Update
by jkjjjjjjjjj jkjjjjjjjj on 2020/12/20 23:21
This new update is HORRIBLE. You have so many people paying for this app, including me, who can’t even use it anymore or edit their photos. The two tabs on the edit page are so user unfriendly and difficult to use. My recent photos don’t even show up in my camera roll on the app unless I screenshot them (???) and then loose the quality in the image. The ones that do show up are rearranged making it so difficult to find the photos you want. When you save a photo they only go into your camera roll and not your drafts like they used to. And you can only edit one photo at a whereas I used to be able to upload multiple photos at a time and have them all in my drafts to compare. It’s a complete mess and not one of these changes is positive and so many people feel the same way. As a paying customer who can’t even edit my photos on a photo editing app, I’m very disappointed. Bring back the one tab drafts page and allow us to upload multiple photos from our camera roll at once. Listen to your paying customers.
VSCO went downhill
by Get 50 free coins for rating on 2021/01/19 05:20
Ever since they updated the interface, VSCO just hasn’t been the same. I used to be able to import photos to the drafts area even if they weren’t edited yet! This was so convenient because I could import all the photos I wanted to eventually edit and post, and could come back to it when I had time to continue working on those photos. Now pictures only go into drafts once they have been edited.. And going back and forth between the “camera roll” tab and the “drafts” tab is even more frustrating because every time you go back to the “camera roll” tab, it doesn’t save your space, it just takes you back to the beginning of your camera roll! So I can’t import a group of pictures that I want to work on, and every time I want to retrieve a new picture from my camera roll I have to scroll through and find it every time. Infuriating !!!! Makes me not want to use VSCO to edit pictures anymore because of the immense amount of effort it requires now :( Very unfortunate and I hope they do something to fix this.

Awesome app but with one annoying aspect
by M.NTHE on 2021/04/17 18:28
I love this app and use it to edit all my photos and haven’t found a better alternative for years!!! But, a recent update has made it so annoying. Whenever I scroll down to edit a photo, as soon as I save it, the app takes me back to the most recent photo on my phone. This means if I have a couple of photos then edit that I took a while ago, I have to keep scrolling and looking for the photo after every single photo I edit which is a waste of time. I would really appreciate it if the app went back to when it stayed at the same range of the edited photo instead. Overall great app!

This app is amazing and I love it. However, the share link does not work. This might be because VSCO is a mobile app and does not have an affiliated website. Mobile Apps do not have the capability to direct http requests so sharing the current share link in a browser will not work. It re-directs to the mobile app in the App Store. It Would be awesome to see a website for VSCO.
Slow mo

I really like the app it has everything! But I wish the slow motion is for free I’m having trouble finding good slow motion apps and this is the only one that has good slow mo. Please.

DSCO
by happyyyyyyyyyyyyyyygalll on 2021/04/16 09:50
I guess now you have to pay in order to do a DSCO which I think is unfair and kinda dumb. Also, the quality of the app is just different. I used to love it but since the update, not so much!
not even fun anymore...just stupid
by meep meep🥺🚗 on 2021/04/16 08:03
i kinda liked it at first and it was fun and cool to use but i dont know if its me or the app itself but now when i go into vsco i cant even edit no more its like i could only do it 1 time and thats it...if i want to do more i have to do some stupid day trial nobody has time to pay for a app thats not even all that...its weird and unfair
Best app
by lahaa._ on 2021/04/16 02:15
Five starts because vsco is best app for photo editing. I’ve been using vsco for almost six years. But, now the quality is very low. :(
Plz

Thanks for taking away manual mode
by Which nickname is not taken???!!! Please~ on 2021/04/15 07:24
I’ve used this app for years because of the manual mode give me control like using a DSLR. Thanks for removing that special feature. Update: Thanks for turning it into a PNS camera app.
Garbage doesn’t work
by el dominguero on 2021/04/15 04:51
I pay premium in , updated the app and it still won’t even start, I have free space on my phone and everything and the app won’t get pass the first loading screen .
Stop with the updates!!
by Hieidi on 2021/04/14 23:46
No journals, DSCOs are no longer free, messages keep being moved around, please stop. The app is becoming difficult to navigate &amp; I&#39;m less inclined to use it when you take away all the good features.
Deactivation/ Site Quota Reached
by Lucile32 on 2021/04/14 14:01
I deactivated my vsco not too long ago, my account is still active but whenever I try to log back in on device I get the “Site Quota reached” message. I can view my feed but all my pictures are gone. How can I get them all back? I’ve trued nearly everything. The support team hasn’t managed to reach out to me since everything was moved online. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
wont work!
by sarah bbbbbbbb on 2021/04/14 01:37
I love how my vsco gets to decide for itself when it wants to open the app and when it doesn’t 😍. now it won’t even load! just a black screen and then glitches out of the app completely.
video exports are dark. stop making it worse.
by Christne :-D on 2021/04/13 23:06
you keep making things worse. the cropping is all flipped around. video exports are dark and low contrast compared to how they show in the app. get a grip — people pay for this! obviously I have the newest update. apple auto updates these days anyways. please give your paying customers actual responses or make actual changes. we’re approaching a year of bad business from VSCO!
Bring back journals
by instagramplsgivememydraftsback on 2021/04/12 19:25
I Don’t know about the staff at vsco, but I personally like compiling certain photos into a folder with a theme to share my experiences. Still do not understand how removing journals is forwarding an app hinged on creative expression but that’s just me
Love hate relationship
by AshleyMonBanks on 2021/04/12 12:31
I’ve had VSCO for many years in order to edit the pictures I post on Instagram and my food pictures that I post on my Yelp account. There are a lot of pictures that were saved in my drafts that were no longer in my camera roll and that I didn’t post on VSCO. The day I got the notification that they updated the app and that if you delete the app you’re drafted pictures would also be deleted, my heart dropped. But I was like okay, no problem, I just won’t delete the app... until I had to. Just this morning I went to edit my food pictures like normal and it WOULD’NT LET ME. I tapped the plus sign to start an edit, nothing. I closed the app and opened it back up, nothing. The only solution was to delete and reload the app. I KNEW I would lose all my drafted pictures but I was praying I didn’t. But as soon as I signed back in they were all GONE. Years of pictures just deleted all because the app malfunctioned and I had to redownload it. Yeah I’m still going to use the app but that update was dumb and super inconvenient.
Great
by Paris4President on 2021/04/12 05:00

love VSCO
by Powerful oz on 2021/04/12 04:37
Used VSCO for years and absolutely love it. Sadly the journals are no longer offered via phone app which is where a lot of my work was shown at. This doesn’t mean I’ll stop using the app as it is still amazing but I wish the journals were still offered
Advice
by aaliyha1938 on 2021/04/11 20:28
So as I go through VSCO I think a cool improvement would be allowing to archive the things you post! You may not like it at the time but then end up wanting to make it pop up again or you wanna delete it but don’t want it to be gone forever!!
Eeew
by hehe1746823 on 2021/04/11 20:23
Absolutely garbage why do you always have to pay for everything it’s so dumb I can’t even edit anything without it saying would you like to sign up for a seven day trial
Messaging
by 783962:) on 2021/04/11 16:17
I love VSCO, there’s no liking or commenting. The only thing that I don’t like about VSCO is you can’t send pictures in your DM’s or private conversations with people. Could you add pictures in your DM’s in your next update. That would be much appreciated!!

Deleting photos from camera roll now deletes them from drafts???
by Olivia12341 on 2021/04/10 20:58
I love this app but now if I delete photos from my camera roll, it deletes them from my edited drafts??? I think vsco should go back to keeping drafts even if the original photo is deleted from the camera roll. If this is vsco trying to free up storage on the app, I think it’s a bad decision. They should allow people/their users the ability to delete photos from their camera roll without it effecting their drafts. If users want to use vsco as a separate storage for photos so they can delete from their camera roll that should be available. I don’t know what vsco was thinking or if others agree with me, but personally it makes me very wary to delete anything from my camera roll anymore.
There money hungry
by Jordan1234rr on 2021/04/10 17:42
So I don’t wanna buy the membership or the free trial but it’s trying to force me to do it and I just don’t like that it’s so annoying so sorry but I don’t think it’s worth it
With each update it gets worse
by Strawberrystrrsh on 2021/04/10 16:10
After the update that gave us a separate workspace to work directly from our camera roll, this app has gone downhill. Photos won’t download at all or if they do they download wrongly cropped or at the wrong orientation. Would not recommend.
Where is my Journal??

DSCO
by nikkibambiii on 2021/04/10 08:50
Why would VSCO get rid of the free DSCO feature? It was one of the best features but now you have to pay to use it. Is there any way VSCO would make that feature free again? Otherwise just another ruined app.
The new update🥺
by MissSamanthaDavis on 2021/04/10 06:30
I am really sad about the new update..in fact the photos i had in journal. They were really Important to me and if i would have known they were getting rid of it. And i am not sure why because the journal portion was my favorite part about this app. I would have tried to get these photos somehow..i am super sad..and a little angry. Because i don’t know how else i can get those photos i had organized and edited perfectly to a theme in my journal and now they are all gone... i really hate the new update. And i hate that they never warned or communicated with us first. ..
Impossible To Cancel
by steve sch777777 on 2021/04/10 02:41
I just signed up for VSCO. It turns out it just changes the lighting on your pictures. Even to do some thing as simple as blurring a face you need to pay extra. I tried to cancel. You can’t do it from the app. So they’re charging me $20 a year. And I can’t cancel. I tried to go online. They don’t except my ID and password.
Update made is difficult to use
by Avery Rosee on 2021/04/10 02:17
I loved using VSCO until the recent update. Now I can’t upload more than one photo at a time. Also, sometimes the photos I edited disappear right after I edited them. I don’t understand why they had to change a good thing :/
Great potential but crashes..
by Ovotorres on 2021/04/10 01:06

i really wish i could chose 0 stars.the reason? every time i click on something it says sign up for membership i try anything it says that i can’t even EDIT because it won’t let me pls fix this and maybe i’ll rate this differently i can’t even edit because the free filters don’t even show up instead it shows the recommended which is not for free then it won’t let me click anywhere else to look at other free filters pls fix this also every time i click on a filter the get a membership add shows up then there’s an x but once i click the x nothing HAPPENS except for the add disappears and it won’t even show me more free filters EVEN THE FREE APP WONT WORK FOR ME :(
Why???
by Apanda10000000 on 2021/04/08 23:33
I like this app, except for the people it recommends to me. I follow Republican posters and Christian posters and other than that people I know personally. But for some reason this app recommends accounts that have highly in inappropriate content, such as girls taking mirror shots of them wearing underwear and crop tops, and pedephiles that have hate posts for jesus! This is disgusting, I want this to end immediately. This is making me hate this app, and I will most likely delete it if accounts like this are still being recommended to me.
come on guys
by emma(youre favorite) on 2021/04/08 22:53
i love vsco, it’s a great social platform that pushes creativity and fun instead of comparison, but ever since the new update i’ve been super bummed that they removed dscos!!! i know they have it on the premium but they don’t even look the same??? come on guys bring it back

You need a membership to edit anything I don’t know why I wasted my time downloading this.
Like, why?..
by Jesus Loves You 123 on 2021/04/08 02:10
This app is famous for what exactly? I’ve tried so many times to copy the exact settings as others have on their pictures that I’ve found on several applications, and it’s never even slightly similar. Even if I choose the closest color for a background from the photo I’m referencing from... And practically all of the filters have to be paid for... So yeah, I’m not a fan and idk what the hype is all about.
The subscription fee is? Ah, you don’t say.
by seasparrow2 on 2021/04/08 00:23
Great app. Strange that it doesn’t say how much the subscription fee is. It just says after your 7 day free trial you will be charged “A subscription fee.” That feels shady, or at the least a bit deceptive. Please come clean. Like Movifone, why don’t you just tell us the subscription fee you will charge us?
Eh...
by mrsyoung on 2021/04/07 18:36
I don’t really like how you need to pay just to edit. That’s all I got to say 🙂
Bring back old layout/DSCO
by Idontneednonicknamebuddy on 2021/04/07 17:45
This use to be my all time favorite app. I love the social media aspect without the actual likes and comments. But I am so disappointed that they made DSCOs membership only, it was a huge part of the app that I loved, I could add in little gif like things to keep memories and now that feature is paid only :( Additionally, the new set up is awful. You can only add in one photo at a time to edit, where as before you could add in as many as you wanted. Please just change everything back to the way it was before!!!
Best app!!!

New UI has really stifled my editing
by hippieherb on 2021/04/06 07:12
I absolutely HATE the new UI. I’ve been using VSCO for probably 7 years and it’s really disappointing how cumbersome editing has become. I am sadly, actively looking for new apps to replace this one.

frustrated
by Sammi1194719038wB on 2021/04/05 17:17
i have come to be disappointed by this app a lot lately with the new updates doing more harm than good but this error message is putting me over the edge. i always loved how accessible vsco was through instagram just by clicking the link in the bio the vsco profile appeared and i could happily scroll through pics but now every single time i click someone’s vsco link from their bio i get this message: “Error loading (null): A server with the specified hostname could not be found.” i refreshed vsco multiple times and have the most recent update yet this error still occurs. if it comes to be that you can no longer see someone’s profile through the link in their bio and are forced to manually type in their name hoping to find their account i’m literally deleting vsco and never thinking about it again. please fix this so i can continue stalking my ex’s new girlfriend ;)
Paying For DSCO?!
by Tabby(o^_^o) on 2021/04/05 13:58
You can no longer use the DSCO video maker. You have to pay for their membership to even use it, when it used to be free before. Rip off. You can only post photos now. 👎🏼
review
by jeffercortson on 2021/04/05 02:54
i wish you could set certain photos to private or at least have a way to retrieve deleted posts
It worked for a while
by Annathelia on 2021/04/04 20:53
I paid for the full version, which was worth it until it wouldn’t let me do basic things like add a border to the photo. When I clicked on the border function, it told me to get the paid version, so I went to do that and it showed that I was paid up for several months. There was no support who could help me so I cancelled my subscription, months later I was prompted to renew my subscription that I wasn’t even able to use.
Importing/exporting
by inkashlie on 2021/04/04 13:42
It’s really frustrating that I can no longer import a batch of photos, edit them, and export them. Instead I have to edit one, paste the edits onto the others and it asks to modify the originals. I want my originals to stay the same, not be edited. I want to be able to export them as a copy in a batch and the newer update doesn’t allow that. You have to either edit them one at a time which takes so long, or modify your original images. Please give us the option to save batches as copies. I’ve used VSCO since the beginning and this has been the worst update.

Why pay for DSCO??? Lameee!
by reptilectric97 on 2021/04/03 06:50
Just realized I can’t share my cool dsco gifs to my profile. This was the best feature VSCO had and making it available only to premium users seems like the app no longer cares about their old users like me - greedy developers. Not going to pay for a feature that used to be free! Make it free again no pun intended lol

i’ve used vsco for so long and i’ve always loved it because it was so calm and non toxic but these new updates are frustrating. the new blue icon...... is awful but it’s not just that..... my messages are below my notifications making it almost impossible for me to reach them and message people which is so super annoying. the new layout is also terrible. i just miss the old vsco.
disappointed
by grcie4 on 2021/04/02 14:28
honestly, i don’t care about the blue app cover. in fact, i kinda like it. whatever. what i DON’T like is vsco, the “free” photo and video editing app, making me pay to post DSCO’s. i guess i can understand the video thing and extra filters costing money (although i do think y’all should expand your free filters section bc you literally have hundreds yet only about 10-15 are free), but one of my favorite parts of the app was DSCOs. idk i’m just disappointed. i don’t know why y’all had to commodify DSCOs AND videos.
THIS IS ABOUT THE JOURNALS

So I’m sorry to everyone who’s pics got lost through the ridiculous update but try and see to find them on the vsco online page. Good luck!! (:

THAT BLUE! 😑
by jackiioh on 2021/04/01 21:18
The new blue app icon is horrendous. It is “blue screen of death” blue. So every time I look at it I have flashbacks to a crashed 90s windows platform. I am going to need to remove it from my Home Screen, if it doesn’t change ASAP.
new update is so inconvenient
by alexaleigh888 on 2021/04/01 15:39
i personally love vsco. however since the new update i have to scroll down through all my notifications ive ever gotten on the app to get to my messages, it seriously takes 5 minutes just to get to my messages . vsco please make a separate tab for messages or put them back at the top again. if you havent updated vsco, dont.
its eh
by h.marshalllll on 2021/04/01 15:19
i love vsco, i think it is a great app. But the new change to the activity being at the very top and the messages being at the very bottom makes it very annoying and i think it should be switch back to its original way.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it
by Christyxox on 2021/04/01 14:23
A perfect example of that is this app. Also the royal blue icon color is gross. Nobody in their right mind likes royal blue.
Change it back 🙄
by I love Nizaara on 2021/04/01 13:11
How does this app get significantly worse with every update? First they delete journals permanently which made me lose years of photos. The blue icon looks terrible and literally why would they put dms at the bottom i have to scroll for so long and half the time it just glitches and i cant see them

by WWF Addict Too on 2021/04/01 04:06

Sinking ship
by Beiwbdjwkdndbwhjwjd on 2021/04/01 03:03
First you take the ability away to make dsco and post them, and then you create an ugly app icon? This app is going downhill so fast. We couldn’t upload our own videos before, now we can’t upload ones we took ourselves! Lightroom will be used from now on.

One of the main reasons that I loved vsco was because of the nice relaxing white app cover. Now it just is ugly to look at because it is so obnoxiously blue. I do not like this new icon picture and will not use the app until you change it back! Thanks but I do suggest changing it back or to something different. Would give 0 stars to this new app cover but that’s not an option. Sincerely, disappointed
Love the app, but please add this feature!!
by natalie k anderson on 2020/08/16 23:49
I’ve been using VSCO for many years now and I love it—their presets are amazing and the “look” VSCO has mastered even persuaded me to upgrade to the full version. I really love being able to create journals, which brings me to my next point: please please PLEASE (i’m literally begging u) create a feature that allows owners to download images from their journals. I ended up creating a bunch of journals with some of my favorite edited photos, then lost my phone (and with it my artist studio) and as a result, I no longer have access to downloading the edited versions. While I sometimes do copy and paste edits, I typically make small individual changes and to go through the entire process for each journal would take hours. Please make this option available—it wouldn’t even have to be for public use, but at least give owners of the photos the option. I would be so appreciative! Otherwise I have 0 complaints and suggest it to anyone who enjoys photography.
It’s cool
by helloooooiooo76544788 on 2020/05/18 18:05
I really enjoy vsco, it’s a fun app I know many people who wish there were comments and likes things that normal social media apps have but I don’t mind, it has good filters but I wish there were more things for free. Don’t get me wrong this app has a lot of free things, but personally I’d love to have the filters the membership offers, but I don’t feel like paying money for it since I don’t use it to often. Just a suggestion. I ,however, do really enjoy the free Dsco feature I love taking short clips and I like how that’s free, it’s also a shame that I think you have to be a part of the membership to post videos. But unlike other apps this app has a lot more than just filters and has things like exposure and contrast to match what you think looks best on the picture there’s a large variety of things you can use to edit your picture, and I have to say they look amazing, I also like how you can repost it and favorite it, it’s different and I like how you can see the posts you have respirated, I also love the discover feature so you can see cool images that other people have posted I defiantly use the studio a lot to edit my apps, and I personally don’t own any social media but it’s cool that it can save to your camera roll and you can post it in other social media apps. Overall, it’s a great app and I would recommend it to a friend (I have actually)
new layout is HORRIBLE
by ggesoff on 2020/11/26 10:25
Not sure how new this layout is, if my app just now updated an old update or if this is brand new, but the new layout of the app is HORRIBLE. It is in no way, shape, or form user-friendly. I tend to dump a bunch of pictures into VSCO and then edit them, saving as I go. Now I have to scroll through my camera roll and I can only select ONE PHOTO at a time, I have to edit it right then and there, there’s no option to upload a bunch of pictures and then edit them later, and if I wanted to do that I would have to individually select each picture and “save to drafts” for every single one, scrolling back through my camera roll each time and THEN I can go to the SEPARATE “Drafts” tab to edit it. One of the worst parts of this whole feature is that if I select a picture and edit it right there in the “Studio - Camera Roll” tab, there is no way to save it to my camera roll AND save it to my drafts. So if I want to save it, I have to individually add it to my drafts, then change tabs, and edit/save it from there. If I want to edit it then save it from the Camera Roll tab, I have no way to go back and edit it later because it doesn’t go into my drafts, where it would normally be stored. I cannot emphasize enough, this update is HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE! I am so disappointed and know that VSCO can do much better — it’s as if no one thought these changes through. Very disappointed. Please go back to the old setup.
always room for improvement
by ya yeet b on 2020/06/26 12:25
I personally think VSCO is a great alternative to not only IG, but a great platform to share photos with other editors! I love the fact that there is no number associated with each post. All the social standards of having “a lot of likes/comments” is not an issue here. It allows creators to really just focus on expressing themselves through photo editing. I would like to say the same for video but it’s only available to members, which are those who can afford to do so; leaving those who aren’t as fortunate enough without that opportunity. I think making VSCO’s video feature free would really attract more users. In addition, I love how vsco can be easily linked to instagram (amongst other apps as well), but I dislike the fact that one must scroll and see every individual photo. I think if VSCO adapted a similar case to instagram, where photos are all in collages so that one can see multiple photos at once, rather than scrolling to view each individual one, it would be much more efficient. I guess being able to view VSCO through Instagram where one can see view multiple photos instead of scrolling down through every picture. Kind of like the desktop version of VSCO but on mobile (thru links). Overall, it’s a great app!!
Love it, just a couple easy fixes!
by Evananderson517 on 2020/10/27 06:06
VSCO is my go-to for chill photo sharing and editing. Super simple and elegant. Just a couple things to fix: - On iPad, the feed always glitches and is a nightmare to use. The photos on my timeline will be super blown up, rotation to portrait/landscape mode always confuses the app, and it takes several attempts at quitting the app and refreshing the feed to be able to see the entire photo. I usually end up just going on my phone to enjoy my friend’s photos. - Discovering and searching for friends could be better. I often find my friends have an account, which is exciting but also disappointing because I wanted to find them sooner! Possibly integration with other social media channels or better account discovery would be nice. I would also love to discover more creators and amazing photographers outside of what VSCO reposts! - I also want the ability to search in my followers/ing list- I get it’s not supposed to be like a hyper-social app but it would be nice to quickly search for my friend and see their latest photography. - The recipes feature is really confusing- every once in a while I’ll try to figure out how to set it and change it and such but I usually end up manually editing the photo.
Hate update from a while ago
by Nice and the best on 2019/07/02 00:22
I loved vsco but I hate the storing now because it all goes to my camera roll but that just takes up more storage I like to keep my pictures I take on vsco on vsco and the only way I can keep them if I delete it from my camera roll is if I post it but I don’t post every picture I take I like to just mess around with some of mine that I don’t want everyone to see. Please fix this so many people have complained about it and still it hasn’t been fixed I about want to use a new app but. I think you guys should also add the feature to make our vsco account private. Another thing that irritates me is that if I delete my vsco or something happens or say I got a new phone when I download vsco again all my old photos will be gone and yes I know I can save them to my camera roll to back them up but I hate having my vsco pictures on my camera roll I got vsco so my friends could see my fun pictures that I edit I don’t want to have to save my vsco pictures to my camera roll or another app it’s just better to have them on there. Please fix this it’s getting a little annoying and infuriating. I would prefer to not have to switch to another editing app when you guys can just switch it back to the original version you had it.
VSCO journals/ new update
by glittttttterbom on 2021/02/03 05:08
This used to be my favorite social media app because it has never been related to likes or the amount of followers you have. I have been using VSCO for over 6 years now and recently the quality of the app has GREATLY depleted. I am constantly having issues with cropping my photos. I woke up this morning to see my app had updated and that all my Journals were removed. I looked up online and found that VSCO has gotten rid of the journal section for good starting today. I have 6 years of photo journals on this app, that are now all deleted. They creators said this change happened because journals are not creative and they want to keep this a creative space. Well I have been using journals to group photos together like an online scrapbook. Along with that I am an artist and use them to keep track of my progress, so remind me why that isn’t creative enough for you? I am so upset by the removal of journals and all my hard work on keeping my journals up to date with good captions is now gone. The least they could have done was give a warning about this so I could have saved them before they got completely removed. And worst of all I tried contacting the VSCO team to see if there is a way to recover my journals and they have zero information on their website on how to get in touch. Not even an email.
Bad update
by Picture Press on 2021/01/02 20:39
Like many others that have written recent reviews, I have been a loyal VSCO user for years now and have the paid membership. I used to love this app, but the new update is super confusing. I liked uploading a bunch of my favorite photos into the studio and then batch editing. It used to be so easy, but now it’s very convoluted and hard to copy paste edits across photos and make sure they are all consistent before saving a copy to my camera roll. Please revert and listen to your user base. :( Update: maybe I am missing something but I HATE that it now asks me to “modify photo?” and then saves over the raw photo in my camera roll with the applied edits. I like keeping my raw photos separate from edited because as editing styles change I know I always have the original preserved for use at a later date. In addition, there appears to be a weird bug where an edited photo looks different in the studio then when you actually open it in edit mode. The last version of VSCO was perfect; please please please revert. I’ve had to switch to the Lightroom app because I hate this update so much. I assume VSCO is trying to save money because server space for everyone’s photos and edits was too costly. I would rather pay more for the old app than deal with this new update. Please fix, how many bad reviews will it take?
Suggestion for paid members
by Perripenguin on 2020/06/19 00:30
I LOVE the app and I absolutely love the entire platform, however as a paid member I would like the ability to sign into my account online on my laptop and edit photos from there. I feel like paid members would be able to get even more from the platform as this would allow members to see colors and filters more clearly and allow members to make even better/smarter editing decisions. I went to do this one time because when I printed out the photo after I edited it, and it didn’t turn out the way I thought it would but yet it looked great on my phone app. I’ve used the app less because of this only because I don’t feel like I’m getting a true editing experience. It only makes sense to me, as you can access VSCO on a computer already and can log in and even browse around! You’d think I could at least edit the photos I’ve uploaded under my profile before I post them on the VSCO feed. I will more than likely cancel my subscription and find another app that will allow me to make edits on my laptop as well. Giving it 3 stars for now until VSCO gives paid members a little more freedom outside of the app itself.
Disappointed
by Melody Joy Dawn on 2020/11/29 18:35
I’ve really enjoyed using VSCO through the past few years, but recently it’s really been frustrating. With its most recent update, if you don’t have premium you can’t post DSCOs like we used to be able to. And i haven’t been able to post journals since this past summer (2020). The journals just sit in my journals section and the cover photo is blank and they refuse to actually post. As of this past day, i’m not able to post or even edit any photo without the app completely freezing up and not responding to touch. i’ve opened and closed the app as well as deleted and redownloaded the app to try and fix these bugs but it has not helped at all. Please come up with a solution. Also with the recent update, whenever i want to save a photo to camera roll from my drafts, it takes me to the camera roll section instead of just letting me stay in drafts. then when i want to go back to drafts, i have to scroll every single time back down to where i left off with editing. this makes batch editing really frustrating as well. i have expressed to my friends how upsetting this new update is, and they’ve agreed with me. Please revert back some of these changes.
Verification Troubles
by chan !! on 2021/01/04 06:02
It’s an amazing editing app that allows for everyone to make their own custom adjustments and even gives them a good selection of pre- made filters that allows the user to have a good glimpse of what the app can do. The whole feed and layout is similar like to Instagram but still has that unique feature and qualities that makes it different than the- said app. Although some troubles in trying to claim the account of others and for yourself, is quite hard as you cannot verify your account unless the email that you put in, is correct. The problem with this issue, is that many users change emails and even get new phones (completely) and loose access to their old email for them to actually verify the account. Without adding the feature for them to change their email or even add their new email/ phone number, they can’t verify their account and edit their account (such as account name, edit the bio, links, etc). If VSCO adds the feature of letting the users claim their account in different ways, then it’s better for them, altogether.
Love love love...but wait!
by Ashton McHale on 2018/07/18 21:35
I absolutely love VSCO and use it for all of my photography. The range of creativity, inspiration and options it provides is incredible. My only complaint is that when I’m scrolling through my feed, I always see tons of content that I like and that I want to republish. However, I always have to slow down while doing this and can’t mass-republish things without getting an error message! Maybe devs you’ve heard this complaint before and refuse to change it because you want users to pay more attention to others work and not just fly through it (at least that’s why I think you haven’t changed this), but I really wish you would! Content can still be enjoyed even if one goes through it quickly. And believe me, I know that many would enjoy the content that they see much more if they were able to republish and favorite things faster without error. Thanks!
Layout/design is terrible
by l;fkj asl;fjasl;fj as[ovnuaeop on 2021/03/02 17:54
Please god put it back to how it was. This camera roll/drafts setup is SO frustrating. Destroys workflow. The gallery used to be a rough draft area, I could view and edit everything together in one place. If images were finished they got posted to vsco and/or saved to my camera roll. (I need to keep the original and the edit.) This new setup ruins my ability to do anything I need. I don’t want vsco modifying any image in my camera roll and I need to be able to do group uploads to a rough draft/working space, I need to be able to copy/paste/small tweak edits over a group of photos. All now nearly impossible. This is infuriating. The design changes have limited creativity and stifled any semblance of a workflow. Pleas tell me how you would suggest I work on 12 images at one time as a group. Your introduction of copy paste edits was lifechanging when it debuted (esp for an app). Also—NOBODY wants to make a “moNtaGe” of tiny images on a phone screen. EVERYBODY wants to have beautifully edited single images. This has always been vsco’s strength. Please facilitate this process instead of muddying the waters and forcing all this extra baggage that only weighs down what I’m here for and what vsco, I thought, was created to do.
Hate the update!
by zgrooms on 2019/06/24 00:05
I used to absolutely love this app. There wasn’t a quality I didn’t like about it. I never actually had an account, or the paid version, and still loved it! I use it to edit my photos for my blog. Recently, after updating the app I noticed a change to the way photos are stored. If I delete a photo in my camera roll, it deletes the edited version from the app. I absolutely hate this change. I use the app to edit my photos before posting, but love to be able to go back and review old photos from the past. After editing and posting on Instagram I always delete them from my camera roll because I don’t like to have a ton of food pictures on my phone. I always loved that I could go back in the VSCO app and pull up old photos to reuse on my blog if I wanted to. Now that the photos delete themselves when I remove them from my camera roll I am no longer able to store them in the VSCO app. This is super frustrating, and makes me wonder whether I want to continue using the app to edit my photos. I usually never review things, but I wanted to share my thoughts in hope that this is something that can be changed.
Love it, but it could be better imo
by P. C. O. on 2018/11/21 16:50
I use this to edit all my photos and I love it, I&#39;m also a VSCO X member and I definitely recommend it for everyone. But, I would like it if you guys made the highlight option to not only take away highlights but to enhance them as well, or present an option where I can select what portions of my image I want highlighted (I’d prefer this more), and the same for shadows. Also, I’d like to be able to add presets to DSCO, not just the ones you offer as soon as I take it, because the way it functions now I’d have to save the DSCO, then re upload it to VSCO, which I find tedious. I’d also like the option to turn other videos I have into DSCO. Oh, also for DSCO, I want to be able to save it to my VSCO library, instead of only being to save it to my phone or uploading it to my VSCO feed, and make it longer, DSCOs are so short. And it would be cool if you introduced options that are fun like chromatic aberration, or vintage scratches and dust. If you guys had all these things I wouldn’t touch another app lol. The app’s dope though, keep it up.
Disappointing update
by amc135 on 2020/12/22 02:38
I’ve used and loved vsco religiously since the days of the old app and am a vsco x subscriber. I know this probably won’t be read or changed back, but I’m really, really disappointed with the new layout. I usually throw a bunch of photos into vsco, edit some of them, then save the ones that come out the best. I reeeeeally don’t like having to edit right from my camera roll then save as a draft if I don’t want to save it back to my camera roll. I do so much comparison and tweaking in the app before I save the ones I love, and this new workflow is not conducive to that at all. I also absolutely hate that copying and pasting filters overrides the photo in my camera roll — who in the world would want to do that?? Overall, this is just mega disappointing. I’m really tired of companies fixing things that aren’t broken and not listening to consumers, so hopefully you hear my two cents. Thanks for making an app I’ve loved for many, many years. I would hate to abandon it now, but the workflow is not sustainable for me in it’s current state. Edit: copy-pasting the same response on everyone’s review is not a good look...😒
Frustrating Storage Due To Update
by well this is 4 stars on 2019/08/20 01:11
I absolutely love vsco &amp; it’s filters &amp; I’ve been using them for years. One of my favorite things was I could import photos into my vsco studio &amp; delete them from my camera roll. Whenever I had the time, I could go back into my vsco studio &amp; get around to editing. Sometimes I’d save it to my camera roll if I was ready to share/post somewhere, but most of the time I didn’t. Keeping it in my vsco studio until I needed it just kept everything organized and I could easily keep track of my photos and edits. However, this new update deletes photos from the studio if the original is deleted from the camera roll. This has only caused frustration and an immensely unorganized mess of photos in my camera roll. I don’t want everything there, I don’t always need everything exported from the app. And what if I accidentally delete the original? The edit I worked so hard on is gone. This update has only made me use vsco less, and other editing apps a whole lot more. The storage did not need to be fixed, it was functioning perfectly! Overall, this update was extremely upsetting.
non app owner views
by dissapointedperusual101 on 2019/01/05 08:06
Because my viewers of my vsco web page without the application on their phone can only view a certain amount of my content, I have decided to no longer focus on my vsco, which was my highest prioritized platform of social media, and now only focus on my instagram and Facebook. I enjoyed having my vsco as a personal blog type app available for my viewers to look at my page even if they didn’t have the app. Now since vsco requires those to have the app to see all content I must shift my focus to a more easily accessible platform. I wanted to share my art and more personal side but don’t want to be limited because an application wants more users. I thought vsco supported everyone’s differences and sharing those with the world but now I see their focus on strictly obtaining users and making money off of them. This makes me less inclined to utilize vsco and far less inclined to ever purchase again through vsco. Your app brand was different and used to focus on the individual and now you’re just another one of the others, focusing primarily on money and less of the freedom of the user.
I miss the old vsco
by MarieMBI302 on 2020/05/28 18:17
VSCO is a huge fan of fixing stuff that isn’t broken. It started with the user interface, then with the editing tools themselves. Vsco used to be a sleek, simple, alternative high quality photo editing app, and now that it’s more mainstream (and slowly turning into Instagram imo) it’s gotten bad. The functionality of the highlights tool is a great example of a well-intending update actually making something worse, and there’s a bug with the grain tool that’s actually been there for a long as I remember. They also removed the web uploader so now to get photography on my computer to the app (which can only be used on the iPhone btw) I have to use “google photos or iCloud.” Thanks but if I wanted my photography to be 240p I would’ve done that already. Also not a huge fan of how often the paid version of vsco is shoved down my throat. Vsco used to be my favorite photo editing app and posting platform but it’s just gone down the tube. Very sad. Don’t get me wrong, the community is still great and the filters remain unmatched, but the other issues are enough to reduce my usage.
out with the new, bring back the old!
by averykiira on 2020/11/30 13:17
Listen VSCO, I’ve loved you forever—since 2013 to be exact. The only reason I’ve even added a second star is for the loyalty. This new layout feels like a slap in the face to longtime users. One thing I’ve always loved about your product is that it has been a constant in a world of changing (for the worse) social media’s. I feel like over the years you guys have done an excellent job updating and keeping the app fresh while apps like Instagram have continued to become more monetized and consumerism-focused. While VSCO has continued to be about the photos/documenting experiences. The new layout has shifted the perspective making it less user friendly and more about being corralled to use the member features. I’ve used VSCO for free for so long that truthfully, I don’t feel mad about now paying for the app to continue to use a longtime favorite, DSCO’s, but don’t make me suffer through a entire new app surface. It doesn’t feel natural or easy to use anymore. I used to love editing/posting on VSCO. Now it feels like a chore. 🥺 Please let us restore old versions. Please.
Great app but i have these inconveniences
by lightbluepanda on 2020/08/01 23:18
I’ll start off by saying that this is a great app. I love using it to edit and I especially love how no one can see each other’s numbers of followers, likes, republishes, etc. It’s a free and positive space for me to post whatever I want without having to stop and think about what other people’s opinions of it may be. There’s no negativity on the app. The reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because of the update. I don’t like how when I delete a picture from my camera roll, it gets deleted from the studio as well. Maybe I don’t want the edited pic on my camera roll anymore but i do on the studio. Perhaps i’ve changed my mind and i want it back. Having it stored in my studio was great for me. Also, I liked being able to click on the home buttons on the bottom to go back to the top of the page I’m on. I can refresh quicker that way, but now I have to scroll back ALL the way to the top? I find that very inconvenient. Please go back to how it was before.
Great...but membership activation is weird
by MiniPodcaster❤️ on 2020/05/20 16:01
amazing app. i enjoy editing and how it has no ads and no followers or likes or how no weirdos can contact you. but on the downside, i purchased a membership and it won’t show up. i have tried logging in to both accounts that i have, and neither of them has the membership. i am worried that i have just paid $20 for nothing. please help! EDIT: i had to renew the vsco membership to use it. slightly confusing and frustrating but the guide had pictures. the vsco x is amazing, but you should be able to post vids. also, a guide to what each tool does would be nice. (e.g. exposure does blank while simultaneously reducing the blank). in all, an AMAZING app. 10/10. better than afterlight as well. 2ND EDIT: please please let me turn my dms off! i don’t want people asking me what i use to edit my pics! also just for safety reasons, u should let us have a private account!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!
good
by Goldstarrockstar on 2020/06/22 17:22
the app is very very good. there are a few complaints or suggestions, however. most of the presets that will transform your pictures are part of the membership. VSCO close to never adds more FREE presets. i think that it is important to have more ways to express yourself and edit without having to pay. the few color presets are not as good and pristine as the ones that require a subscription. i am not suggesting that the entire app needs to be free, although that would be nice, VSCO still needs a way to make money. the videos and the montage effects should stay premium just because they are very cool features that should have the privilege of being premium. i am really just asking for more color pristine presets. other than that the app is very good. it runs smoothly and isn’t too hard to get the hang of. it requires creativity, but that is the point. overall, a very clean, good app.
best app ever
by Ewilson12345678🍕🎤🐳 on 2018/07/04 11:57
i am no artist. but ever since i got vsco it has made me want to be more creative and think outside of the box. the things people can publish on vsco are always incredible and even if it is just words they are always the most relatable things. my favorite part about vsco is that you can’t comment. people that post on instagram always have the fear of getting a certain amount of likes and who’s going to comment something, but vsco isn’t like that. you can be yourself. no one knows how many followers you have. no one knows how many likes you get and rebublishes (kinda like a retweet if u don’t have the app yet... get it though!) but anyway, thank you vsco for being my favorite app and i just have one recommendation; the posts that people publish saying things like “get this to 6 million republishes for my best friend to stop smoking or for me to do something, etc.” is it possible that the people who own there own accounts can see an actual number of the ppl who republish and like? not because any cares on vsco but because of purposes like that one. i’d like if nobody can see it but myself, just so i don’t have to count. even if this never happens, i wouldn’t be upset at all. i love the way vsco makes every person feel equal. it’s just a hastle counting when it could just tell you the numbers and only you. if you read this, thank you so much!! rock on!!
Love this app, literally more than any other app
by littlegrumpytrout on 2020/12/26 14:06
I have been using this app since 2013 and it only gets better. There have been features over the past years that I’ve had to get used to but overall I love it. I use it everyday. I think the idea behind this app is absolutely perfect. This app has given me the courage to explore my own creativity and open up to sharing it. I don’t worry about how many people notice my photos and I love that comments and likes are not a feature on this app. Every feature from the wide variety of presets, DSCO (ability to make your own gifs), taking videos AND being able to edit them and participating in challenges BRINGS ME JOY AND HAPPINESS! I highly suggest joining the VSCO membership, it’s worth every penny! Thank you so much to the creators and VSCO team for creating and continuing to update and evolve the VSCO app. It’s made an impact on my life so THANK YOU!
I hate the recent change.
by mvalencia_ on 2019/06/09 01:32
I have been using this app for years now so I finally gave in and decided to purchase a membership. I have loved it....until now. I hate the recent update. Now if you delete a photo in the camera roll then it is automatically deleted in the vsco app, this is extremely frustrating. I was unaware of this recent change. Which is odd because I use this app frequently. It was only brought to my attention once I tried searching the internet to find a way to recover the photos I lost. This new feature is an unnecessary change and I hope it is only temporary. Until then take my experience as a word of caution or just use the free features. If this was a feature Vsco had during the time I considered purchasing a membership, I would have taken my money elsewhere. Now that the change has been brought to my attention I will be more careful of what photos I delete. If it wasn’t for the new feature I would have rated this app five starts but no use in doing that if a photo editing app deletes my photos automatically.
Uninstalled
by Estelle DeRose on 2021/02/27 17:31
This used to be my favorite app to edit photos but now it’s glitchy and the constant updates don’t fix anything. They have changed a bunch of features and now the app is complicated and confusing to use. You can no longer upload photos, they edit them directly from your camera roll, so if you used to to use the “copy edits” function like I did, when you go to copy an edit to an unedited original photo it will prompt you (on apple at least) asking for permission to “modify photo,” which means it will overwrite the original photo completely. If you paid for an entire year of VSCO premium filters, it will say that the filters are locked and wants you to pay monthly for them. I cannot edit my profile or like and save other creators pictures to my collection because it constantly tells me to verify my email...but I already did when I signed up, when I press the pop up button that says “click her to verify” it disappears completely. If I’m ever going to use VSCO again they need to completely overhaul the user interface and make it easier to understand as well as fix their various glitches.
Getting better but...
by bbyiia on 2021/01/15 09:48
I’m really glad you guys listened to our complaints so I really hope you continue to do so. You made it so our photos cloned in app again which is really great!!! But I noticed when trying to paste an edit on multiple photos in the cameral roll section you ask to modify the original photo which is something we do not want or care for. You only bring up that option when we mass select but you just make a normal copy when we individually select photos, so it’s really confusing. It’s also incredibly time consuming because if I have many photos to put the same saved edit on then I have to do them all individually... when the point of the saved edits feature is to lesson the time you spend editing in the first place. Please change this!!! Honestly speaking a lot of things you could do to better this app again is to just go back to some of your old features. You didn’t have to fix what wasn’t broken.
not lovin’ the update, man
by lea helena on 2019/06/09 14:59
this new update where it makes you either save or post edited photos, and delete the ones in your library when you delete them from your camera roll, makes everything way more complicated. what if you don’t want to post something to VSCO right away and then you have to go back to your camera roll, import to VSCO again and THEN post. i really like having all my edited photos on the app because it’s accessible for posting to VSCO, and likewise saving to camera roll when i need to. it would be a much better update if there was the option to save your edited photo to your VSCO library, alongside saving to camera roll or posting to VSCO, because not everyone posts all their photos, and not everyone keeps their photos in their camera roll. it would also be a lot better if there was an option before you delete a photo from your camera roll, to decide if you want to delete from your VSCO library as well. i love this app and use it literally all the time, but i’m really bummed by this update and it makes me want to use it a whole lot less.
Please switch back to old design!
by kenziek4 on 2021/01/16 03:55
This new design is all over the place! It’s so confusing! I liked the old design so much better. I liked how you could select all the photos/videos you were going to be working with and move them to the project area and work on them from here. This new design has me searching so much more for all the content I need and then when I save it, it still is somewhere random on my phone and not the first vid/pic in the line up. And my favorite feature was the copy and paste, it was so easy on the old design, this one I had to hunt for the copy and paste button and then I had to scroll for so long to find the pic I wanted to paste it on instead of having all my pics and videos selected in the project room like it use to be! Plus the background is black instead of white, it’s very hard to edit pictures with black light. Why did you guys change it? Like it was so unnecessary, this update is super lame and makes me want to not use this app. At least have the option for this new design or the old design, because I would be sticking with the old!
Amazing App But Buggy Notifications
by D3naaa on 2018/03/06 00:25
Okay, so this is literally my favorite app. I love how it’s based around art and photography compared to like Instagram that’s just about whatever. Another thing that’s better about this than Instagram is with insta, you’re constantly comparing yourself to other people’s accounts. How many likes do they have? How many followers? With VSCO, you don’t have that bc it doesn’t tell you. A+ to you guys. My only complaint is the messaging part. And I realize it’s new so I’ve been trying to give y’all credit and I’m sure you guys will fix it but a lot of times I don’t get notifications even though they’re turned on. Every person I message on there says the exact same thing and that it’s a constant problem. So if you guys could work on that, I’ll gladly change my review to 5 stars. I recommend this app to everyone. It’s wonderful and the community is great. I highly suggest downloading. If you plan on using messaging though, just keep checking them until it’s fixed.
Love it, but needs more for video editing!
by mcdancer5678 on 2021/02/06 22:10
I have been a user of VSCO since almost the beginning! I love the app so much so that I decided to buy the membership a year or two ago so I could edit videos and get even more effects! There’s so much to love about this app, but I do think that there is still room for improvement! I would love love LOVE to have more video editing features added to the app. A big reason why I don’t edit videos in it very often is because it lacks editing tools/effects for videos, in comparison to other apps. The “vintage” look is super popular right now and I would love to have a feature that allows me to make videos/pictures look like film, etc. I actually was debating getting the membership for the app Tezza because they have this feature. Obviously VSCO is an incredible app and one of my favorites, and I don’t want to switch, but I would truly love if they had more features, especially for videos!
This App Used to be Good
by adawngrace on 2021/02/11 19:01
I was paying for an annual subscription to VSCO and used it for all my photos— until recently. The app has been glitching like crazy in the last few months. I can’t crop photos the way I want, photos upload sideways and can’t be rotated, the app crashes while I’m in the middle of editing, etc. I thought VSCO would fix these problems with an updated version, but it continued to go on for months, which left me wondering what I was paying for. The app also doesn’t allow you to upload photos to edit into your VSCO gallery like it used to, but rather has all your photos from your camera roll automatically added, which is majorly inconvenient. It used to save photos directly into a VSCO folder in the Photos app, but now it only saves to camera roll, which makes it harder to find my edited pictures. Overall, I am very disappointed with the decline of this app which I’d been using for the last 7 years, and therefore will be looking for other photo editing apps to invest my money in.
Cool things to add!
by planet_claiire on 2018/08/06 21:32
Love this app with the VSCOX membership and everything, but I would love if y’all could add a Post Notifications feature that way I could make sure to see the posts I want to see when I don’t have time to scroll through my regular feed!! Also if y’all could add a way to create DSCO videos from live photo’s or videos in your camera roll that would be AMAAAAAZINGGGG!!!! I’m always forgetting to take DSCO videos and it would be the best thing ever if I could just create them from my past live photos and/or videos. Also I love how you can edit videos, but I wish that I could save the video without it exiting out and forcing me to start over with a new video. Sometimes I like to save the same video with multiple filters or with a few adjustments and I wish I could do this without having to screenshot all my previous settings so I don’t have to start all over. Being able to edit the video without it continuously playing on a loop would help this, but adding a feature where you could edit the video while its playing on a loop or paused at places of your choosing would be great too. Other than that, I LOVE this app and I can’t wait to see what y’all create in the future. Thank you for such an amazing app!!! (with a very reasonably priced subscription plan too!!!!) Thank you!!!!! - Claire
Love hate relationship
by AshleyMonBanks on 2021/04/12 12:31
I’ve had VSCO for many years in order to edit the pictures I post on Instagram and my food pictures that I post on my Yelp account. There are a lot of pictures that were saved in my drafts that were no longer in my camera roll and that I didn’t post on VSCO. The day I got the notification that they updated the app and that if you delete the app you’re drafted pictures would also be deleted, my heart dropped. But I was like okay, no problem, I just won’t delete the app... until I had to. Just this morning I went to edit my food pictures like normal and it WOULD’NT LET ME. I tapped the plus sign to start an edit, nothing. I closed the app and opened it back up, nothing. The only solution was to delete and reload the app. I KNEW I would lose all my drafted pictures but I was praying I didn’t. But as soon as I signed back in they were all GONE. Years of pictures just deleted all because the app malfunctioned and I had to redownload it. Yeah I’m still going to use the app but that update was dumb and super inconvenient.
Horrible new UI
by hi_itschristine on 2021/01/25 01:08
Latest design refresh is not intuitive and has made things much harder versus easier for mass editing, with little tutorial of how to use the new UI. I haven’t used vsco in a while and I couldn’t figure out how to upload multiple pics let alone 1 pic from my camera roll to edit. After finally figuring it out (you have to allow access to all photos - I had to delete and reinstall), you’re no longer allowed to select photos from your camera roll to edit. It instead accesses ALL your photos which means you have to scroll through all your photos each time. This has proven to be super frustrating since I’m downloading older photos to make a photo book. The UI is also super buggy. I’ve been a loyal user for the last 6 years and I may have to delete this app for the first time and try other photo editing apps.
FAVORITE APP EVER!
by alenepatel on 2018/08/16 04:52
Everything about VSCO is perfect. I use VSCO almost everyday and it’s so refreshing. I love the layout and how simplistic it is. I love how it isn’t very social unlike Instagram! Please don’t add in anything else social wise! The messages are a nice touch, but no comments please! That’s what makes it stand out in my opinion. There are a few glitches I’m sure you guys are working on, but I’d like to suggest a tiny feature that means a lot to me, and I’m sure other users as well— please add a “flip” photo feature in the editing tools selection. I like the way VSCO takes front facing camera pictures, but hate how my phones front camera flips the end result when I take a selfie with it. Please add a flip feature where I can flip a picture from left to right in the editing selection so it can be just like how it looks when I take one in the VSCO app directly.
Best photo editing/sharing app!
by Applover269 on 2020/09/27 01:52
Years ago, I found myself too concerned with likes and followers on Instagram. I deleted my account and soon after, I found VSCO. This app is exactly what we should be using. It’s all about posting photos you like and not having to worry about likes, comments, who unfollows you or anything of the sort. As advertised, this app is pro-content. Your followers on VSCO can interact by favoriting or sharing you posts, but only you can see who’s interacting, not the whole world. The free version is still more than adequate. I don’t have VSCO X, but I’m sure it is great. The filters and editing tools are extensive and contain just what you may need. You can also discover new ways to take and edit photos by looking at the discover page. I wish my discover page didn’t cycle the same photos repetitively, but that’s a minor issue.
Update is a total fail
by AnIndustryPrevails on 2020/12/27 06:32
I’ve used VSCO (even back when it was VSCO CAM) and have experience many updates. All of them were improvements and created a streamlined ease of use. Even as a professional photographer, VSCO beat out Lightroom in my ability to import photos I want to edit, make edits, paste edits to multiple images, make adjustments to specific images, then export those images for use on social media (both for business and personal). The UI was streamline and efficient over any other app. The new update is inefficient in every way that it was previously efficient. Editing is clumsy. Edit an individual photo? You can save that one to camera roll as a copy with your edits or save it as a draft. Once that edit is made you can copy and paste to multiple images, OVERWRITING THE ORIGINAL. This is like image file management 101, the basics, the fundamentals. Never get rid of your original file. I know, you’ll say “you can undo the edits in VSCO”. Yes, in a very difficult and time consuming manner. Don’t be so proud that you can’t admit you made a mistake with this new set up, take a step back and adjust!
Subscription Billing Without Subscription Service
by crgnewcomb on 2019/05/27 10:06
This app crossed over into why-pay-monthly/yearly-for-it territory the last few years with VSCO X, it’s $20 annual subscription that unlocks all the features in the app. The feature set is robust, but it doesn’t/hasn’t changed in ages, other than a few new monthly filters (how many do you really need?). I get subscription billing is the new model, but most services have a feature roadmap or similar. VSCO does not. It’s worth $5-10 once if you got everything the app currently offers, but definitely not $20 yearly for VSCO X. I should add I did pay for it last year, but once I neared the end I didn’t really see a reason to renew. I guess if you like the community and photo challenges: launched in second half of 2018, this is their most recent feature. Many other apps offer the photo editing tools for way cheaper (some even as a one time purchase). I just really don’t know what perks you’re getting by paying a subscription.
Questions for VSCO
by Bob Ross 🤠 on 2020/10/14 22:03
I love this app so much! It definitely is a way to show off my creativity and I spend a lot of time on it! I do have a few questions though- the first one would be that is there any way we can add an account so we don’t have to log out each time? I have a account where I post of myself and one where I post of things that I enjoy. It would be so much easier for me! Also is there anyway we can connect them to the same email? I don’t have more than one email. My last question would be is there any way you can add the number of our followers, reposts for each post, and favorites somewhere on our profile? It doesn’t even have to show other accounts the amount of our followers or reposts or anything to anyone, it would just be quicker and easier to see the number then count. Thank you!
i used to be such a big fan but newest update just isn’t it ://
by jdszfvjfw on 2021/01/10 06:22
i’ve NEVER written an app review but i am seriously so disappointed :,( i’ve been using vsco since it was “vsco cam” &amp; the whole social aspect of the app was not around yet. with the app’s growth in social aspect &amp; popularity i’ve continued using &amp; even paid for a vsco membership for 2 years. unfortunately, the newest update makes the app so unusable that i’ve already cancelled my subscription &amp; stopped trying to struggle through continued use. the inability to upload multiple photos into drafts is beyond inconvenient. many of my other favorite features like copying edits to paste onto other images have also become extremely tedious to navigate. this is not a matter of begrudgingly learning to use an updated app due to bias to what i’d already known; rather, too much of my go-to uses of vsco are simply no longer worth the hassle of completing according to the new formatting. as a longtime fan and user of vsco, it is not easy for me to turn my back on it, but i honestly would no longer recommend this app to anyone.
Newest update is a pain.
by BearVsBryan on 2020/12/11 17:12
I’ve been using VSCO for something close to 6-7 years. I used to love it for its batch editing functionality and streamlined user interface. Now the studio section is just confusing. I can no longer save a batch of edited photos to my camera roll. When I do save from drafts to camera roll, the correct edits aren’t applied and I end up with tons of useless photos. Some that are permanently edited. My business is now suffering because I’m unable to batch edit in a time efficient manner. Lots of back and forth searching for photos through my cluttered camera roll when I used to be able to just import what I wanted and none of what I didn’t. This direct from camera roll studio is just not working for me. I may have to just switch to another photo editing app after loving VSCO for so long. Hopefully something is done soon about this as it’s apparent I’m not the only one experiencing these headaches.
the most amazing app i have downloaded
by gwen5002 on 2021/01/10 06:33
vsco is an outlet for creativity and inspiration. Every time you open the app you never feel pressured to be something you’re not or to make something of yourself. Every time you open the app it’s a different experience and it’s really amazing. The vsco app has really helped me discover who I want to be and also regain certain parts of myself, the creative parts of myself, that I thought i had left behind. sometimes the app glitches or closes on me but i couldn’t care any less about that when i think about all of the other things it has to offer. vsco isn’t even just an app, it’s an online community and presence. it’s the complete opposite of any mainstream photo sharing social media like instagram. the edits and challenges offered allow you to play around and have fun.
🤔
by xSarahhSmiles on 2018/07/21 20:18
I’ve been using the app for years and it’s easily one of my favorites. The set up and layout is displayed nicely, and all the functions are easy to find and use. I’ve always liked all the different filters but never wanted to purchase them all individually, so when the subscription rolled out last year I was very excited! That being said, I would love if there could be more in depth tools(selective, curves, text, etc.), too often I find myself having to use another app for a few little things that I think would be great to have all in one place. I also wish you could chose to have a profile or not, simple because I don’t care much for the social aspect of the app, it doesn’t seem to run smoothly and no one really seems to interact in it so it seems ultimately pointless, great concept though! Can’t wait to see what else you guys over on the VSCO team roll out in the future.
Disappointed
by aminah_mck on 2020/12/20 07:15
Been using vsco for about 5 years now and I am thinking about canceling my subscription. This new update is difficult to navigate, especially for anyone who is getting into photography/editing photos. I don’t like that I can’t actually upload the images and I’m “editing” right from my camera roll. So it modifies the edits over the original in your camera roll. Not only that, but to edit a photo one by one, even if you copy and paste Murillo is time consuming and annoying. Also my images that I save into my drafts aren’t saving to my camera roll either, so I have to click each photo I want edited from the “camera roll” section. I’m really disappointed because I use vsco mainly for my personal work when I’m on the go. I use Lightroom as well but I liked the style that vsco gave to the photos. Unfortunately, I’m just going to spend some time making my own presets for Lightroom mobile similar to the ones I liked from vsco because I will be canceling. Very disappointed.
I love VSCO
by peteybot on 2019/06/29 20:30
I use VSCO for all of my mobile picture editing and I&#39;ve been using it for years! I&#39;d recommend VSCO to everyone who edits pictures. My only complaint is toward a product of a recent update. You guys released an update that deletes filtered pictures off the app once the original is deleted off the phone, I guess to save storage? This just isn&#39;t ideal for me. When editing a picture, VSCO is usually the final app I use in my process. When I&#39;m finished, I like to delete all progress pictures for storage purposes and only keep the final product. When I do this, my edited image is removed from VSCO, along with the recipe I used for it. This is an issue for me because I often use the same recipe for different pictures and it&#39;s annoying to have both an unedited image and the final product in my phone. I hope my rant made sense and I hope you guys could accommodate me. Much love otherwise ❤️❤️❤️
New Update
by jkjjjjjjjjj jkjjjjjjjj on 2020/12/20 23:21
This new update is HORRIBLE. You have so many people paying for this app, including me, who can’t even use it anymore or edit their photos. The two tabs on the edit page are so user unfriendly and difficult to use. My recent photos don’t even show up in my camera roll on the app unless I screenshot them (???) and then loose the quality in the image. The ones that do show up are rearranged making it so difficult to find the photos you want. When you save a photo they only go into your camera roll and not your drafts like they used to. And you can only edit one photo at a whereas I used to be able to upload multiple photos at a time and have them all in my drafts to compare. It’s a complete mess and not one of these changes is positive and so many people feel the same way. As a paying customer who can’t even edit my photos on a photo editing app, I’m very disappointed. Bring back the one tab drafts page and allow us to upload multiple photos from our camera roll at once. Listen to your paying customers.
VSCO went downhill
by Get 50 free coins for rating on 2021/01/19 05:20
Ever since they updated the interface, VSCO just hasn’t been the same. I used to be able to import photos to the drafts area even if they weren’t edited yet! This was so convenient because I could import all the photos I wanted to eventually edit and post, and could come back to it when I had time to continue working on those photos. Now pictures only go into drafts once they have been edited.. And going back and forth between the “camera roll” tab and the “drafts” tab is even more frustrating because every time you go back to the “camera roll” tab, it doesn’t save your space, it just takes you back to the beginning of your camera roll! So I can’t import a group of pictures that I want to work on, and every time I want to retrieve a new picture from my camera roll I have to scroll through and find it every time. Infuriating !!!! Makes me not want to use VSCO to edit pictures anymore because of the immense amount of effort it requires now :( Very unfortunate and I hope they do something to fix this.
