Worth the 19.99 a year! This editing platform and light seed are by farrrrr the best 2!!!

I’ve been using VSCO for a couple of years now, but I don’t know if the latest upgrade made it crash. But I can’t post anything on my account. I’ve already tried to turn off my phone in the car that it’s just my data, but lately nothing has worked so far:(.
Always having trouble
by laurenbeth2526 on 2021/10/21 01:02
I subscribed for the VSCO membership a few years ago and instantly had trouble getting all the features to unlock. I tried multiple things to fix this problem and nothing ended up working. So, I canceled my membership. Now, years later, I am just trying to add one filter to my photos but the plus button is not working. It simply doesn’t do anything so I am unable to add or edit ANY photos. If someone could kindly recommend me to an editing app from a different creator that would be fabulous because I’m tired of fighting with the VSCO especially after how much I spent on this dumb app. VERY UPSET.
Can you solve the problem?

App crushing since iOS 15 rolled out
by kiddostyle on 2021/10/20 16:46
Dear team of VSCO, my email request got ignored so I’m reaching out here. The app always crushing when lunching on iOS 15 and later updated version. Second time launching it’s a hit or miss. The app mostly works but this can crush in the middle of editing. My VSCO app is up to date. Please fix this weird bug . Thank you
App isn’t working
by riah renee cabrera on 2021/10/19 16:59
I’ve been using VSCO for awhile now and just recently I had to make a new account because my old one wasn’t letting me have access to any photos so I made a new one and paid for a new membership. Well the app still isn’t allowing me to edit any of my photos and keeps asking me to buy a membership when I just did so I have no access to any of the extra features.
Just No….
by Aperson writing a review on 2021/10/19 13:57
So I was trying to edit a video and when I get into the app it says save video for membership. Shouldn’t we be aloud to save the video without having to pay, and it logged me out when I left the app I didn’t even close it I just left for a minute and when I come back it logged me out and said invalid username even though I put the exact same user I used to make an account with. So I feel like this app just isn’t right for me. 😐
Only the basic stuff is free
by The.DogFather. on 2021/10/19 12:39
Just like plenty of other apps… you get the most basic, limited filters and editing tools possible. I was looking for an app that would add nice borders to photos for a project. You have to PAY for BORDERS in VSCO. I will say the community is more artistically focused that other sources but Instagram is free.

Slow mo
by hhdsukk on 2021/10/18 08:03
I like the app but I think the slow mo should be free. What’s the point of it not being free? A lot of people only use it for that and I’m one of these people. This app is a good app and it’s one of the best apps in phones for doing slowmos. But I can’t even do them because it’s not free. Please just make to slow mo free….
App keeps crashing IVE WRITTEN A REPORT 8 TIMES ALREADY

App has been crashing for months now I can barely open it, i’ve wrote a review about this so many times before. y’all keep updating the app but can’t seem to fix the major crashing bug???

Eat a bag ducks
by argo76 on 2021/10/16 05:19
Why did you make me create an account to find out the price? It’s a duck move to make me give my email to then go to the pay page. If you were not a flock of ducks you would have reversed the order of those pages. I uninstalled, Quack quack!

It’s okay I guess.
by Bakubear8792 on 2021/10/14 17:04
So, I think this app wants to make you pay for almost every thing, you have to buy a membership just to save the video! Not great.

Disappointed
by myheartisawake on 2021/10/14 03:33
I purchased a premium subscription for the sake of one video I wanted edited. I was really really pleased with what I could do as far as editing, but my two minute and 50 second video that I worked on literally crashed every time I tried to save it to my camera roll, and I could not even figure out how to save a draft - so I had to try and try again from scratch. It was a complete failure and I’m disappointed.
My slomo doesn’t work !!

Horrible UI/UX

It’s a good app but why is the slow Mo for money now 😕
1 star.
by Lizzyb00h00 on 2021/10/10 17:51
Why do i need to pay to edit. At this point i feel like people do this because they want extra money. If your gonna make me pay to edit a video on an editing app you might as well make the whole app cost money. Its such a waste of time to install an app for fred then to find out i gotta pay 5-15 dollars a month to use it. this is so unfair for people who cant afford to pay for subscription.
Why?
by unicorn1242 on 2021/10/10 05:47
BRO WHY DO I HAVE TO PAYYYYY JUST LET ME DO IT FOR FREEE 🥲🥲🥲
ok app because..

ok so this app is good the quality is good but i can’t make stuff on there because i have to pay! please make this free! all i want to do is create some slow motion and it wants me to pay, not everyone can pay on this app! so please.
Used to love it
by Nate Huff on 2021/10/09 16:56
I used to love this app. I even purchased a handful of their filters over the years I was using it, but when the switched to a subscription based setup, I lost all the filters I had previously purchased. So now I’m deleting it from my phone.
Love VSCO but..
by RosaR. on 2021/10/08 21:02
I use VSCO everyday, love the app. Only reason why leaving a low review because, lately my VSCO has been crashing a lot.
Its stupid.
by Awesomehath on 2021/10/08 01:06
Why do you have to pay to save it? Thats just stupid, i had to wait a hour to screen record the whole thing and wasted my time. Why do you have to? Why do apps add this? Do they think its going to help? No because they want the money. Literally adding the "buy this to save" is stupid, please remove that. I really think its a waste of money and time.
App Review

This app is good but its not free on iOS which is annoying, everytime i wanna slow a video it kicks me out when i choose a video i want, please fix this!
PNG not working right
by StixCreatez on 2021/10/07 14:32
I subscribed to this app because I’m a barber who wants to show off his work and have the ability to watermark my pictures with my logo. I was able to do that with ease at first but after update it leaves a black background behind logo . With that being said it’s worthless to me now because that was the whole reasoning of me purchasing this app. Highly Frustrated.
free trial claim is fraudulent
by zwhite66 on 2021/10/07 12:47
VSCO claims they offer a 7 day free trial. This is not the case and their claim is fraudulent. I signed up for a free account years ago. I never used it and wanted to delete it. I contacted their support team and they told me they didn’t see my account there and in order to delete it I would have to sign in. I had to subscribe for the free trial to delete the account. Then I immediately cancelled the subscription. The subscription was for a year. I’ve requested a return from apple, but I have to wait and see how that goes. This company and their app are not worth it. Don’t waste your time or money. VSCO, please close your doors. You’re disrespectful.
VSCO
by Megan the Genius on 2021/10/06 21:15
It’s a great app, but there is a few things. Just a few mins ago I was trying to make a edit and it was lagging but that can be a bug. But the other thing is that you can’t upload it without paying so you do have to screen record then crop but that’s all I don’t like abt this app or that frustrates me.

Needing to pay to export
by BiggestFnafFan on 2021/10/03 00:44
I personally downloaded this app for slowing down videos and I find it so stupid how you literally have to pay to export a video, other than that it’s pretty easy to use.

SCAM!
by Atiras6 on 2021/10/02 22:15

Tried to trick you into subscribing
by Scott Wednesday on 2021/09/29 00:49
When you sign up a window pops up that implies that you have to start a free trial that charges you after 7 days. They hide a tiny x in the top left hand corner to skip the step. If the app STARTS like this I can only guess how the rest of the app works.
100/10 stars

Very impressive
by Moyillmaticking on 2021/09/28 06:26
I don’t if Instagram lets people rotate their phones to see the photo a different viewpoint. This app got the portrait orientation feature. The clarity, the grain, the sharpness and other tools leave the results clean when applying them to the photo. Most apps don’t produce that clear clarity result, grain, or sharpness. The filters are also satisfying, making hard for me to choose one. I like applying sharpness, and clarity to my photography with this app only, it brings better results besides using other apps with the clarity and sharpness tool.
Paid for subscription still can’t access all features!
by Rena Forreal on 2021/09/27 13:05

I’ve used it for years, but..
by Paigebaugh on 2021/09/27 02:14
I’ve suspected for a while but finally confirmed tonight that the photos don’t save to your camera roll the same way that they look in the app. The photos look perfect in the app and then you save it and somehow it’s suddenly blown out. I have no idea what is going on, but I’m going to have to find something else if I can’t figure it out soon. 😭

When I was logged in it kept saying that there was a network error but I was still able to edit photos. So I uninstalled and tried to download it again and it won’t even let me log in no matter which way I choose because it says there was a problem reaching a server. Terrible!!!

I love using this app. I have an account but am currently signed out from the app. It will not let me sign back in as a RETURNING user. Only forcing me to make a new account. So frustrating! I want my account back! Otherwise this app is fun and easy to use . Really enjoy it just hoping to get back into my account.

Only have VSCO for DSCO
by nadsshhikshn on 2021/09/19 02:22
WHY DONT THE DSCOS PLAY AUTOMATICALLY ON YOUR PROFILE PAGE ANYMORE??? I edit with Lightroom, so the main reason I pay for VSCO is for the DSCO feature. I love that you can scroll down a page and they will play on repeat effortlessly. But for some reason they arent playing anymore? Now you have to click on one and go into it like a friggin video! What the heck VSCO?!

Great
by Busy Bee 🥊 on 2021/09/16 22:29
I enjoy this app, my favorite social media app out of them all. Very simple and easy to use, I haven’t had any problems with it. 💛
Great app, but only I can only use 19/200+ filters for the free version?
by hannah3t on 2021/09/16 00:22
⚠️I want to make this the main point: There should be more filters for the free version. Especially more versatile filters like Al3, G6, SS1, U3, AGA1, E6, and ones that go with a lot of photos. You have over 200 presets, you can spare the free version a few more because we deserve to create too and don’t have the money for the subscription. That being said I love this app and have been using it for almost 2 years. It’s simple and has a nice aesthetic, and is functional. The filters are great, the quality is great, however there is always a few things that could be better or added to the free version. I love this app because it’s like a safe place to put photos together and your gallery looks like one big collage that represents… you. Unlike Instagram where it’s mainly a bunch of candids. There aren’t any likes or comments, it’s great. You get to basically make your own Pinterest board of things you created. I also like how the nature of the app is fairly private and secluded. Here are a few suggestions and things I would like to see for those of us who can’t pay for a subscription: please give us the ability to post dscos on our gallery back. Sure, keep the actual videos premium but give the dscos back. And as for my main point that I stated, your app says you have 200+ filters. Only a very small amount of them are free. Granted, I love them all they are wonderful but if you have that many filters, can we please have a few more free ones available? 19 free filters out of 200+ isn’t very many. If we had a few more free filters, it would allow us to express our styles more instead of us using a lot of the same filters. A few more subtle natural, warm tone, tinted, and saturated filters would be very much appreciated. If you have read this, thank you very much and I hope you take this into consideration. Thank you

Missing features
by jd eochbens ensgeix on 2021/09/15 05:42
All the manual camera control features I expected to be in this app based on reviews and articles have been removed, it’s now just a clone of the default iPhone camera with some chintzy filters. No manual ISO or focus or anything.

Every time I try to slow my video to make it smooth it only works certain times like it was just working two days ago and now I can’t even finish this edit I was working on.
Love Vsco!! But...
by madison g./ on 2021/09/11 21:17
I love vsco so much, its the only social media platform i have because its the only one i like. But please bring the journals back, that's what made me keep vsco and what made me love it because i could release my creativity on the journal's. So please please please bring them back
Video Editing
by brian.bowling on 2021/09/11 21:07
I was interested in trying this app out for video editing but apparently that's not a feature that you can access without a premium account. I have no intention of signing up for a premium account just to see if afeature is usable or not. I guess I'll just have to keep looking.
Won’t allow you to sign in with your username
by emily nanda on 2021/09/11 13:21
Can you allow this option? I can’t get into my account on the app.
Too high of a price
by Sub To Jxcksonszn on 2021/09/10 03:25
I think this app is great and all but I think exporting my videos should be free.
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)
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!!
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.
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?
It’s Going Downhill- Two Suggestions
by Calvin.york99 on 2021/06/02 12:48
The thing that is currently getting the most on my nerves though is that when I finish editing and choose whether or not to save or to post, the phone automatically scrolls back to the saved photo. This is so frustrating when I’m editing photos that are farther back or even relatively close and my place in my camera roll is not saved. I don’t want to scroll all the way back, edit another photo and then do the process again. It’s tedious and pointless. I guess this is in place, so we can see where the edited photo lands? But, that’s not helpful. I think that a button at the top of the screen that says “jump to most recent photos” or something would be more useful. Loosing my spot constantly is SO frustrating. I love VSCO, and I will stick around because I love and am used to the editing software they have. However, I feel like with each new update, VSCO is making it harder to stay. They got rid of the studio, which was very handy. I liked having the photos I was editing in one place. When editing my photos, I don’t want my whole camera roll there with all my screenshots too. I want to choose what’s in the studio. I really want studio back. I use VSCO on my iPhone 11, and I would love to be contacted
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.
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.
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.
terrible customer service!! And an update I would like to request.
by angela underwood is my vsco on 2021/06/10 04:15
Honestly, I like how vsco is an alternative to Instagram, but what is most annoying is that it doesn’t show everyone your followers or likes, and doesn’t have a setting to turn it on. And yes, I get that people are self-conscious, but there should be a setting to turn things on like a publicly show your followers, likes, and comments. Like Instagram !! I am not allowed to have Instagram for many reasons. And many of my friends also aren’t allowed to have Instagram. many others feel this way about the likes, followers, and comments. And I have tried to contact you on the ‘request a feature’ page. But I got an email back saying ‘we do not respond to emails that request a feature’ or something along those lines. And that is truly disrespectful because the whole self-conscience thing I said earlier? Well, that makes people feel like they can’t be heard. So I suggest you talk to your staff and make a few updates, because the last thing I said about the ‘request a feature’ is truly outrageous. And also, please read more of the reviews for this app, as you will see my point as many other people feel this way, it isn’t just me. Sincerely, Angela
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!!
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.
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'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.
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.
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 & it’s filters & I’ve been using them for years. One of my favorite things was I could import photos into my vsco studio & delete them from my camera roll. Whenever I had the time, I could go back into my vsco studio & 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.
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.
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.
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!!
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...

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.
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.
New Studio is overly complicated, not intuitive, completely ignores user experience
by frankboo on 2020/12/25 14:27
You used to be able to copy edits from image and past into others, view the changes, edit them. Now you have to search endlessly for the one you edited, copy edits, go back and search endlessly for the one you want to test those edits on, paste them—- OH JUST KIDDING, it automatically saves as final edits to new photo. VSCO Has removed so much functionality that we used and gave us a convoluted, less functional studio. VSCO now completely ignores the date order of Recent Photos on iOS. I frequently edit an image in another app, export it, then import that new image, now the most recent image on my phone, into VSCO. With the update here, I can no longer see my most recent images, and I have to hunt and gather through my entire camera roll or create a new organization system just for importing into VSCO. My editing time has been increased and become much more tedious. Very upsetting they have ruined my workflow as a VSCO member for many years.
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.
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!
Awesome app, but haven’t been able to open it in 5 months
by alm2021! on 2021/05/23 02:16
I love this app, I have a passion for photography so I love taking photos and editing them with VSCO filters. But I haven’t been able to even open my app since January. I click on the app and the loading screen with the logo stays for a few seconds and then goes directly back to my Home Screen like I never clicked on it. It doesn’t seem to matter how many times I try, it will not open. I’ve restarted my phone, updated my phone, updated the app, I’ve tried everything. I don’t know what to do because I really miss the app so much, I’ve been having to log in through Pinterest to catch up on my feed, and I’m even paying for all of the features, which is now a waste of money since I can’t even use it, it’s been really frustrating. Im scared to delete the app because i might lose my whole feed but I may just have to start all over. I haven’t seen anyone else with this issue…Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated!
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.
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.
VSCO *used to be* great
by alpacacrazyelle on 2021/04/19 02:07
I have been using VSCO since 2016. Up until a few months ago, I had absolutely no complaints about this app. I’ve been a VSCO X member for 2 years now and have had no regrets. Unfortunately, the most recent updates have absolutely wreaked havoc on this app and ruined everything I love about it. Half the time I try to open the app, it glitches and won’t work. The way that the photos save into my library (as a burst of the original) is super frustrating and hard to use. I don’t know what the VSCO team was thinking with the past few updates, especially when we in the VSCO have so ardently shared our dislike of all of the changes (changes, might I say, that we’re not necessary and only hinder each user’s experience with the app). Needless to say I will not be renewing my VSCO membership and I am incredibly frustrated with this app as a whole. If the team can find a way to fix all these issues, I might consider renewing my membership but it’s unlikely. Overall, I would say use another editing platform like Lightroom.
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.
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!
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
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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” & the whole social aspect of the app was not around yet. with the app’s growth in social aspect & popularity i’ve continued using & 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 & 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.
🤔
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.

Worth the 19.99 a year! This editing platform and light seed are by farrrrr the best 2!!!

by alexxgoz on 2021/10/21 14:19
I’ve been using VSCO for a couple of years now, but I don’t know if the latest upgrade made it crash. But I can’t post anything on my account. I’ve already tried to turn off my phone in the car that it’s just my data, but lately nothing has worked so far:(.
Always having trouble
by laurenbeth2526 on 2021/10/21 01:02
I subscribed for the VSCO membership a few years ago and instantly had trouble getting all the features to unlock. I tried multiple things to fix this problem and nothing ended up working. So, I canceled my membership. Now, years later, I am just trying to add one filter to my photos but the plus button is not working. It simply doesn’t do anything so I am unable to add or edit ANY photos. If someone could kindly recommend me to an editing app from a different creator that would be fabulous because I’m tired of fighting with the VSCO especially after how much I spent on this dumb app. VERY UPSET.
Can you solve the problem?

App crushing since iOS 15 rolled out
by kiddostyle on 2021/10/20 16:46
Dear team of VSCO, my email request got ignored so I’m reaching out here. The app always crushing when lunching on iOS 15 and later updated version. Second time launching it’s a hit or miss. The app mostly works but this can crush in the middle of editing. My VSCO app is up to date. Please fix this weird bug . Thank you
App isn’t working
by riah renee cabrera on 2021/10/19 16:59
I’ve been using VSCO for awhile now and just recently I had to make a new account because my old one wasn’t letting me have access to any photos so I made a new one and paid for a new membership. Well the app still isn’t allowing me to edit any of my photos and keeps asking me to buy a membership when I just did so I have no access to any of the extra features.
Just No….
by Aperson writing a review on 2021/10/19 13:57
So I was trying to edit a video and when I get into the app it says save video for membership. Shouldn’t we be aloud to save the video without having to pay, and it logged me out when I left the app I didn’t even close it I just left for a minute and when I come back it logged me out and said invalid username even though I put the exact same user I used to make an account with. So I feel like this app just isn’t right for me. 😐
Only the basic stuff is free
by The.DogFather. on 2021/10/19 12:39
Just like plenty of other apps… you get the most basic, limited filters and editing tools possible. I was looking for an app that would add nice borders to photos for a project. You have to PAY for BORDERS in VSCO. I will say the community is more artistically focused that other sources but Instagram is free.

Kinda scummy to charge nearly 5x more just because someone wants to pay monthly. $20 is still a lot to some.

Slow mo
by hhdsukk on 2021/10/18 08:03
I like the app but I think the slow mo should be free. What’s the point of it not being free? A lot of people only use it for that and I’m one of these people. This app is a good app and it’s one of the best apps in phones for doing slowmos. But I can’t even do them because it’s not free. Please just make to slow mo free….
App keeps crashing IVE WRITTEN A REPORT 8 TIMES ALREADY
by evemkor1 on 2021/10/18 00:28
App has been crashing for months now I can barely open it, i’ve wrote a review about this so many times before. y’all keep updating the app but can’t seem to fix the major crashing bug???

Eat a bag ducks
by argo76 on 2021/10/16 05:19
Why did you make me create an account to find out the price? It’s a duck move to make me give my email to then go to the pay page. If you were not a flock of ducks you would have reversed the order of those pages. I uninstalled, Quack quack!

It’s okay I guess.
by Bakubear8792 on 2021/10/14 17:04
So, I think this app wants to make you pay for almost every thing, you have to buy a membership just to save the video! Not great.

Disappointed
by myheartisawake on 2021/10/14 03:33
I purchased a premium subscription for the sake of one video I wanted edited. I was really really pleased with what I could do as far as editing, but my two minute and 50 second video that I worked on literally crashed every time I tried to save it to my camera roll, and I could not even figure out how to save a draft - so I had to try and try again from scratch. It was a complete failure and I’m disappointed.
My slomo doesn’t work !!

1 star.
by Lizzyb00h00 on 2021/10/10 17:51
Why do i need to pay to edit. At this point i feel like people do this because they want extra money. If your gonna make me pay to edit a video on an editing app you might as well make the whole app cost money. Its such a waste of time to install an app for fred then to find out i gotta pay 5-15 dollars a month to use it. this is so unfair for people who cant afford to pay for subscription.
Why?

Used to love it
by Nate Huff on 2021/10/09 16:56
I used to love this app. I even purchased a handful of their filters over the years I was using it, but when the switched to a subscription based setup, I lost all the filters I had previously purchased. So now I’m deleting it from my phone.
Love VSCO but..
by RosaR. on 2021/10/08 21:02
I use VSCO everyday, love the app. Only reason why leaving a low review because, lately my VSCO has been crashing a lot.
Its stupid.
by Awesomehath on 2021/10/08 01:06
Why do you have to pay to save it? Thats just stupid, i had to wait a hour to screen record the whole thing and wasted my time. Why do you have to? Why do apps add this? Do they think its going to help? No because they want the money. Literally adding the "buy this to save" is stupid, please remove that. I really think its a waste of money and time.

PNG not working right
by StixCreatez on 2021/10/07 14:32
I subscribed to this app because I’m a barber who wants to show off his work and have the ability to watermark my pictures with my logo. I was able to do that with ease at first but after update it leaves a black background behind logo . With that being said it’s worthless to me now because that was the whole reasoning of me purchasing this app. Highly Frustrated.
free trial claim is fraudulent
by zwhite66 on 2021/10/07 12:47
VSCO claims they offer a 7 day free trial. This is not the case and their claim is fraudulent. I signed up for a free account years ago. I never used it and wanted to delete it. I contacted their support team and they told me they didn’t see my account there and in order to delete it I would have to sign in. I had to subscribe for the free trial to delete the account. Then I immediately cancelled the subscription. The subscription was for a year. I’ve requested a return from apple, but I have to wait and see how that goes. This company and their app are not worth it. Don’t waste your time or money. VSCO, please close your doors. You’re disrespectful.
VSCO
by Megan the Genius on 2021/10/06 21:15
It’s a great app, but there is a few things. Just a few mins ago I was trying to make a edit and it was lagging but that can be a bug. But the other thing is that you can’t upload it without paying so you do have to screen record then crop but that’s all I don’t like abt this app or that frustrates me.

Needing to pay to export

Tried to trick you into subscribing
by Scott Wednesday on 2021/09/29 00:49
When you sign up a window pops up that implies that you have to start a free trial that charges you after 7 days. They hide a tiny x in the top left hand corner to skip the step. If the app STARTS like this I can only guess how the rest of the app works.

Very impressive
by Moyillmaticking on 2021/09/28 06:26
I don’t if Instagram lets people rotate their phones to see the photo a different viewpoint. This app got the portrait orientation feature. The clarity, the grain, the sharpness and other tools leave the results clean when applying them to the photo. Most apps don’t produce that clear clarity result, grain, or sharpness. The filters are also satisfying, making hard for me to choose one. I like applying sharpness, and clarity to my photography with this app only, it brings better results besides using other apps with the clarity and sharpness tool.
Paid for subscription still can’t access all features!

by Paigebaugh on 2021/09/27 02:14
I’ve suspected for a while but finally confirmed tonight that the photos don’t save to your camera roll the same way that they look in the app. The photos look perfect in the app and then you save it and somehow it’s suddenly blown out. I have no idea what is going on, but I’m going to have to find something else if I can’t figure it out soon. 😭

by nadsshhikshn on 2021/09/19 02:22
WHY DONT THE DSCOS PLAY AUTOMATICALLY ON YOUR PROFILE PAGE ANYMORE??? I edit with Lightroom, so the main reason I pay for VSCO is for the DSCO feature. I love that you can scroll down a page and they will play on repeat effortlessly. But for some reason they arent playing anymore? Now you have to click on one and go into it like a friggin video! What the heck VSCO?!

Great
by Busy Bee 🥊 on 2021/09/16 22:29
I enjoy this app, my favorite social media app out of them all. Very simple and easy to use, I haven’t had any problems with it. 💛
Great app, but only I can only use 19/200+ filters for the free version?
by hannah3t on 2021/09/16 00:22
⚠️I want to make this the main point: There should be more filters for the free version. Especially more versatile filters like Al3, G6, SS1, U3, AGA1, E6, and ones that go with a lot of photos. You have over 200 presets, you can spare the free version a few more because we deserve to create too and don’t have the money for the subscription. That being said I love this app and have been using it for almost 2 years. It’s simple and has a nice aesthetic, and is functional. The filters are great, the quality is great, however there is always a few things that could be better or added to the free version. I love this app because it’s like a safe place to put photos together and your gallery looks like one big collage that represents… you. Unlike Instagram where it’s mainly a bunch of candids. There aren’t any likes or comments, it’s great. You get to basically make your own Pinterest board of things you created. I also like how the nature of the app is fairly private and secluded. Here are a few suggestions and things I would like to see for those of us who can’t pay for a subscription: please give us the ability to post dscos on our gallery back. Sure, keep the actual videos premium but give the dscos back. And as for my main point that I stated, your app says you have 200+ filters. Only a very small amount of them are free. Granted, I love them all they are wonderful but if you have that many filters, can we please have a few more free ones available? 19 free filters out of 200+ isn’t very many. If we had a few more free filters, it would allow us to express our styles more instead of us using a lot of the same filters. A few more subtle natural, warm tone, tinted, and saturated filters would be very much appreciated. If you have read this, thank you very much and I hope you take this into consideration. Thank you

Missing features
by jd eochbens ensgeix on 2021/09/15 05:42
All the manual camera control features I expected to be in this app based on reviews and articles have been removed, it’s now just a clone of the default iPhone camera with some chintzy filters. No manual ISO or focus or anything.

Video Editing
by brian.bowling on 2021/09/11 21:07
I was interested in trying this app out for video editing but apparently that's not a feature that you can access without a premium account. I have no intention of signing up for a premium account just to see if afeature is usable or not. I guess I'll just have to keep looking.

by Sub To Jxcksonszn on 2021/09/10 03:25

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)
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!!

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.
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?
It’s Going Downhill- Two Suggestions
by Calvin.york99 on 2021/06/02 12:48
The thing that is currently getting the most on my nerves though is that when I finish editing and choose whether or not to save or to post, the phone automatically scrolls back to the saved photo. This is so frustrating when I’m editing photos that are farther back or even relatively close and my place in my camera roll is not saved. I don’t want to scroll all the way back, edit another photo and then do the process again. It’s tedious and pointless. I guess this is in place, so we can see where the edited photo lands? But, that’s not helpful. I think that a button at the top of the screen that says “jump to most recent photos” or something would be more useful. Loosing my spot constantly is SO frustrating. I love VSCO, and I will stick around because I love and am used to the editing software they have. However, I feel like with each new update, VSCO is making it harder to stay. They got rid of the studio, which was very handy. I liked having the photos I was editing in one place. When editing my photos, I don’t want my whole camera roll there with all my screenshots too. I want to choose what’s in the studio. I really want studio back. I use VSCO on my iPhone 11, and I would love to be contacted
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.
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.
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.
terrible customer service!! And an update I would like to request.
by angela underwood is my vsco on 2021/06/10 04:15
Honestly, I like how vsco is an alternative to Instagram, but what is most annoying is that it doesn’t show everyone your followers or likes, and doesn’t have a setting to turn it on. And yes, I get that people are self-conscious, but there should be a setting to turn things on like a publicly show your followers, likes, and comments. Like Instagram !! I am not allowed to have Instagram for many reasons. And many of my friends also aren’t allowed to have Instagram. many others feel this way about the likes, followers, and comments. And I have tried to contact you on the ‘request a feature’ page. But I got an email back saying ‘we do not respond to emails that request a feature’ or something along those lines. And that is truly disrespectful because the whole self-conscience thing I said earlier? Well, that makes people feel like they can’t be heard. So I suggest you talk to your staff and make a few updates, because the last thing I said about the ‘request a feature’ is truly outrageous. And also, please read more of the reviews for this app, as you will see my point as many other people feel this way, it isn’t just me. Sincerely, Angela
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!!
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.
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'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.
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.
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 & it’s filters & I’ve been using them for years. One of my favorite things was I could import photos into my vsco studio & delete them from my camera roll. Whenever I had the time, I could go back into my vsco studio & 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.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
New Studio is overly complicated, not intuitive, completely ignores user experience
by frankboo on 2020/12/25 14:27
You used to be able to copy edits from image and past into others, view the changes, edit them. Now you have to search endlessly for the one you edited, copy edits, go back and search endlessly for the one you want to test those edits on, paste them—- OH JUST KIDDING, it automatically saves as final edits to new photo. VSCO Has removed so much functionality that we used and gave us a convoluted, less functional studio. VSCO now completely ignores the date order of Recent Photos on iOS. I frequently edit an image in another app, export it, then import that new image, now the most recent image on my phone, into VSCO. With the update here, I can no longer see my most recent images, and I have to hunt and gather through my entire camera roll or create a new organization system just for importing into VSCO. My editing time has been increased and become much more tedious. Very upsetting they have ruined my workflow as a VSCO member for many years.
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.
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!
Awesome app, but haven’t been able to open it in 5 months
by alm2021! on 2021/05/23 02:16
I love this app, I have a passion for photography so I love taking photos and editing them with VSCO filters. But I haven’t been able to even open my app since January. I click on the app and the loading screen with the logo stays for a few seconds and then goes directly back to my Home Screen like I never clicked on it. It doesn’t seem to matter how many times I try, it will not open. I’ve restarted my phone, updated my phone, updated the app, I’ve tried everything. I don’t know what to do because I really miss the app so much, I’ve been having to log in through Pinterest to catch up on my feed, and I’m even paying for all of the features, which is now a waste of money since I can’t even use it, it’s been really frustrating. Im scared to delete the app because i might lose my whole feed but I may just have to start all over. I haven’t seen anyone else with this issue…Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated!
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.
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.
VSCO *used to be* great
by alpacacrazyelle on 2021/04/19 02:07
I have been using VSCO since 2016. Up until a few months ago, I had absolutely no complaints about this app. I’ve been a VSCO X member for 2 years now and have had no regrets. Unfortunately, the most recent updates have absolutely wreaked havoc on this app and ruined everything I love about it. Half the time I try to open the app, it glitches and won’t work. The way that the photos save into my library (as a burst of the original) is super frustrating and hard to use. I don’t know what the VSCO team was thinking with the past few updates, especially when we in the VSCO have so ardently shared our dislike of all of the changes (changes, might I say, that we’re not necessary and only hinder each user’s experience with the app). Needless to say I will not be renewing my VSCO membership and I am incredibly frustrated with this app as a whole. If the team can find a way to fix all these issues, I might consider renewing my membership but it’s unlikely. Overall, I would say use another editing platform like Lightroom.
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.
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!
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
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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” & the whole social aspect of the app was not around yet. with the app’s growth in social aspect & popularity i’ve continued using & 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 & 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.
🤔
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.
