    I’m having a lot of fun designing my own inspirational posts from my own photos. Adobe PsX makes this very easy with the editing of each layer. There could be some minor improvements, eg in the stroke for fonts (I haven’t figured out to cancel out of that once it’s in place without deleting the text and starting over completely) and the choice background color of the message in combination with the font color (which I would like to be able to make my own combinations for), or the spot correction that doesn’t allow for spot darkening/lightening, as far as I can tell and the spot correction that takes a blob from not always the best next spot over & creating a layering of branches instead of a darker spot in the background kind of thing. Overall this app provides a lot of excellent features. There are also other Adobe apps that connect into it with ease, but I haven’t had the need to use them in conjunction with this one. My concern is that at some point Adobe will turn around and charge me for use of the whole thing or have a monthly subscription for it making an older version obsolete, as is my experience with another Adobe product I used for years and don’t use enough to get a monthly for. This trepidation and minor adjustment mentioned above (maybe I need to check out the help section on this) made me drop a star. In the end Adobe is amazing and does deliver with its photo development apps.

    I've used Adobes photo apps for a long time and honestly think that their app layouts are Numero Uno. Lightroom, PS Express, and Photo Fix are used everyday and I couldn't do what I do without Adobe. Well I probably could, but it wouldn't be as easy as it is now. Now If I was able to design the final piece to my -Adobe Photo Maintenance Collection-, it would be an app that would allow the user to analyze any photograph to determine if that photo is actually the original image, or if it's been munipulated. An example of munipulation would be receiving an image that has possibly been overlayed with another image, maybe it's had parts removed by cutout, or something was erased. An app like that would be to cool. If possible the app would attempt to reconstruct the image to it's original glory. The user could just tap a fix photo button and the program would attempt to remove as much of the overlay / cover-up as possible, then it would attempt to rebuild the photo to it's original look. While your at it could you all throw in a simple -Focus My Blurred Photo button-. Just take a blurred photo that's recognizable and bring it into focus. I mean it's all 1's and 0's right? I'm sure you guys and girls at Adobe have got this wrapped up already. Cheers!

It really works. I would reccomend, if you are an artist who likes taking photos of your art the saturation feature is a must.

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

    I love this app! It’s also free and I am so thankful for that because I don’t have that much money but I love taking photos it’s one of my hobbies. On this app u can add filters that look awesome. You can also add blur which makes the photo look great! This app is rlly easy to use and I rlly like it. Btw don’t like ever write reviews for apps but this app is the best and a must have for photographers or anyone rlly. I have pics that I don’t rlly like and want to delete but before I delete them I edit them in this app the I rlly like how it turns out and ❤️ the pick. I also recommend huji which is not rllya editing app but it’s a camera app, but I like ps express more. I high recommend this app fr yo. Get it lol. (Sry for any grammar mistakes I didn’t reread it cuz rn I want to edit more of my photos) Anyways trust me get this app u won’t regret it. When I tell someone and tell them to trust me on this I mean it and I know it’s true and they may not believe then but in the future they thank me so much. So u may not believe but just try and then maybe like spiritually thank me.

    Easily a 5 Star app if not for adobe’s constant angling for more money and more user data, updates that reduce functionality and unexpectedly lock you out of the app just so they can demand your email address in order to track and market to you. They already had the market cornered and had one of the most loyal customer bases of an software company that they’ve built up since the earliest days of Macintosh computers. They are ubiquitous in the desktop publishing industry world wide with zero competitors in sight (at least once quark dodo’ed out). Now that they’ve introduced their monthly leasing structure for their flagship products they are not only destroying what they’ve built up until now but more importantly they’ve stopped cultivating younger generations of loyal users who will choose other photo editing software packages that have a relatively minimal one price tag. No ones going to stop using photoshop who’s used it for years but students and other new users will be using other more affordable options. Basically I rant to say that adobe decided to bleed the goose that laid the golden egg for bigger quarterly gains. Suckers ruining a good thing. But this app for the iOS is on point and tight, if you know what your doing and not just interested in pre-fab filters there’s an impressive amount of photo editing options here. Get it together before that golden egg laying goose flys the coop.

  • Please help🙏🏻 Jul 1, 2020

    By agegirl
    Hello, I know I probably won’t get a response but it’s worth a shot. I have downloaded more photo editing apps than you can imagine. I have tried so hard to figure this issue out and I can’t for the life of me. So I’m really desperate at this point. Can you please tell me how to resize an image without compromising the photo? PSexpress gives you the aspect ratio presets for different social media platforms to choose from. But, it doesn’t matter what I choose because it always cuts off my photo. I don’t want to do that. I want to be able to fit in the FULL size photo. If it means I could crop it into being a full sized photo, I would be willing to loose on the quality. And, I don’t want to put it on a white background so that the photo fits in that square because I would still be loosing on the photo. I want to be able to resize to whatever dimension I need to in order to fit the photo in different social media platforms. I know that a lot of these platforms automatically compress the photo for you but, I would like to resize it before I upload so I don’t compromise the photo, and it doesn’t get cut off. I have watch many videos yet, I can never get it. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could suggest what I can do to fix this frustrating problem. I would be so grateful!!
  • A mixed bag... Nov 15, 2018

    By GGTriGeek
    There are some things I really like about the app, and some things I really dislike. Positives: I really like the ability to create custom looks. This is a huge time saver... pull up a photo, apply your own personal style, and the photo is ready to save. I also like the adjustment tools as a whole. They are intuitive, easy to use, and cover my needs for post processing. Negatives: I hate the social part of the app. Every time I start the app, someone’s hoot pops up and I need to exit this to get to my photos. For social feeds, I use Instagram and I shouldn’t be force fed social media just to modify my pictures. This is a more recent update... you didn’t get that splash screen in the past. Ideally we should be able to disable this in settings. The other negative is the app can be slow or crash at times. This has happened for well over a year, and I originally thought it was my old iPhone. Nope... same issues when I got my iPhone X at the end of last year. It will freeze on a photo and take a couple of minutes to make one adjustment. This doesn’t happen in other photo processing apps I’ve used, just this one. Overall, it’s still the app I use most often for ease of use... I just wish the social splash could be turned off, and that the stability would improve... and I’d give it a 5.

    I pay for this app, and ever since the last update features of it either don't load or they make the app crash. Going from something that was free to having to pay for it, for it not to work properly is unacceptable 😒 Update: CS responded within a day and sent out an update that fixed all current issues everyone including myself may have been having. If you're still having issues, uninstall app, restart device you're going to be utilizing the app on, re-install app, and it should be up gtg.

    I enjoyed it much better when all of the features were free if I wanted to pay for a photo editor, I would have gotten the full Photoshopped program. The only reason I used it was because it was free. Now, I will be working with another free photo editing app. You companies are too greedy. What's the point in making people pay for damn near all of the features, when you have Photoshoppe for that!?

    Used as a free app for awhile, then I paid for the premium version, and absolutely nothing changed! I have NO access to the premuim options even though my status now says subscribed to premium. What is going on??? Why do these tech companies keep making people pay for more problems! I'm not buying problems damn it. I am buying a premium app or service.

    This has been convenient for absolutely basic single-photo editing and for combining photos with zero modifications, but right now I'm trying to juxtapose 2 photos and rotate one of them, and the "edit photo" functionality is just an endless spinner, Evan after a reboot. I don't know what it's waiting for when both photos are local files, so all I can conclude is this is basic functionality that just doesn't work at all.

    This app was great when free. It's not photoshop, just quick fixes to enhance your photo. I only ever used 3 things on app now one is locked up bc need to pay. Get a real photoshop download on ur computer If your into spending your money and want photos truly enhanced. Use whats free. Full version not worth it.
  • Dec 20, 2021

    By Sheila Letkeman
    Most features require paid premium subscription. I downloaded this app specifically to use the blur background feature in pictures. However, that tool is part of the paid subscription only. The free stuff in this app is just about the same tools that are already provided In my cell phone camera picture editing software. So this app is completely useless to me, uninstalling immediately.
  • StopPromoting me to review this Mar 24, 2021

    By neverusingticketmasteragain
    Iv reviewed this app like 20 time and continue to get printed to(like there isn’t even a x to close the window it just keeps bringing me here. And it’s always when stuff gets worse. Stop asking me to review it lol I pay for the premium or whatever and I’m bombarded with stupid “adds” while I can only edit photos 10/20 at a time before everything I click and every file prompts “cannot be opened”. Reset the app and I can edit maybe 6 more before the errors come again. Random crashing as if I actually go on a streak of editing without errors, but that’s less frustrating than having to reset the app every 10 minutes so I can actually get some editing done... Also the update that made it so I can’t access/edit photos from my own phone, on because the app needs to now be connected to the internet so you have the option to post on their “social media” built in dashboard.... I don’t want that.... I want to edit my photos..... I don’t need to see other peoples work(even if it is cool) I need to edit the photos on my phone so I can download/upload/take more photos to continue the cycle.... Ask me to review. I do it because the close button is blocked, do a stupid review, go back edit one photo and BOOM REVIEW OUR SHITASS APP. Well it would be better if I didn’t have to review the app every photo I crop and and center.... plus whatever else I wrote before...

    It saddens me to give photoshop express such a low rating, since I have loved it for so long, used it for years on my photos! but after this recent update i now have to pay to use edits that were once completely free. Not only do i have to pay at all, but *monthly*. That is absolutely ridiculous. Adobe is successful enough not to need to raise rates on one of the few free apps they have. I'm really disappointed. 😞

    With affinity photo and other zillions of this type of app out there, this is kind of an embarrassment. To each their own, and not knocking anyone for liking it, but as a professional, this app - and their others - are not what you’d expect from adobe if you’ve relied on them for desktop software in the past. I can see plenty of instagrammers and selfie takers loving this, and that’s great - it’s nice to go beyond what apple stock apps and Instagram filters have to offer. 👍 However - Their scatterings of iOS apps meant to ‘add up’ to a pseudo-desktop ‘suite’ of features and offerings is exactly that - scattered. And highly frustrating because of it. There should be a much more robust amalgam of these apps for the iPad. Which the competition has already completed, so one must assume that adobe was and is always going to consider their iOS apps as lightweight apps for your phone only. Too bad, really. I appreciate adobe sketch, and I know that some of these apps have some perks and are designed fairly well, so it’s not like incompetence, it’s a plain and metered decision by adobe. With their pricey subscription model on desktop, and this ‘strategy’ for iOS, I can’t see them being top dog for much longer. Affinity and others may swallow them up while they remain somewhat oblivious and/or too profit-minded to survive this mobile/new-school editing software revolution.

    Have been using this app for years, but there have been significant issues in recent months. They are removing existing features from the app and requiring a subscription to use them. Still an okay option, but a bad choice from them to try to strong-arm existing users into a subscription.

    Find ANY other photo editing app!! Adobe has done an outstanding job of screwing up a perfectly good application. This used to be my "go-to" app... NO more cause of pure greed. COSTANT INTERRUPTIONS looking for a premium subscription. I'm out and going straight over to Snapseed, or Pixlr, or polarr or anything else that doesn't rudely interrupt my photo editing process. Like I said this used to be my go-to app but now I seriously hate it. BTW your email is not even valid. WHAT A JOKE!

If you're still having issues, uninstall app, restart device you're going to be utilizing the app on, re-install app, and it should be up gtg.

    I have used the free photoshop express app on several generations of iPhones. Before Apple had editing right there in your iPhone photos. But honestly, even since the Apple editing has been included I still prefer using this Photoshop app. I’m no professional by any means so I have no idea how to articulate what it is that’s better lol but. I feel it’s extremely user friendly and has great options and features/tools to use in the free version (I’ve never even considered the premium). And... if you have used any other photo editing apps then you KNOW what I mean about the apps just suddenly kicking you out. Seriously aggravating when they just suddenly shut down and close the app thereby losing your edits and whatnot. I have never had that issue with this photoshop express. There are no advertisements either like some apps have. Previously, I would have said that I wish it had a couple other features so that I didn’t have to go to another second or third app to doodle on the pics or add a text overlay etc. but it appears as if they have added these things now! So, before I start sounding like a paid advertisement lol I digress.

    Great if you have an online store. My god this shaved about 40min per picture compared to what I was using before for stark white-flat-lays. Basically you only need basic understanding of... using apps... and you’ll be able to mess around with this and figure it out even if you’ve never used it before. Honestly. It’s user friendly IMO and way less “computer person” (lol) than the full photoshop computer program, yet you can edit pictures and make them look nearly as professional, or just as, depending on what you’re doing (like in my case to make the white backgrounds- this app lets me make pro-level ones). If you just want a picture to edit your selfies, this is probably a bit more advanced photoediting than say, FaceTune, and you probably need to know how to edit pix a bit more than you do on that app. But for anything professional, products, to make nature/scenic pix pop, to add text, etc- it’s fantastic. Also, it makes the best collages of any app I’ve ever used. Hands down. I really never review apps, but I love this one. And I love the sister apps that go with it. Fantastical. Seriously have no complaints that I can think of.
  • Best app for amateurs and professionals while on their phone May 8, 2019

    By Gregknowles22
    I started using Adobe Photoshop in 1992 while in College to become a photojournalist. I remember still the awe I felt going to Mrs. V’s class. What incredible things would I see today? I try to hold on to those feelings in a world now full of altered images. It’s exciting, yet sad, that we seem to have lost ourselves in the realm of the surreal. I believe this app is incredible. There is no competition for handheld devices. Constantly improving while keeping its roots steady. At this point, I use the remove flaws tool as I used the original clone tool with great precision. If you’re at all confused or frightened by all the options photoshop has to offer, my advice to you is the words Mrs. V once told me...Just play. If I could give you any advice for improvement, I’d say look to the filters on instagram. I still prefer their options to any others offered here. And the effects offered by Carbon are brilliant! I’d add a Leica effect for selective focus and unique background pixilation and a hasselblad effect for a medium format look. That’s all. And if I could have my old clone tool with the choice of brushes...I’d be in Heaven. Thank you!

    It’s everything you can expect from Adobe! The favorite , to me anyway, is the collages variety! It’s not just squares beside each other, you got everything you can imagine including cool shapes like triangles or circles with as many photos as you can want( I don’t know that for sure , but so far I have used a collage with 12 photos and it looked awesome! The shapes also are aligned in many ways to make a huge impact and you can also size them each individually. It literally almost limitless what you can accomplish with these bold and exciting new look of collages! You can also add text with many options of the best fonts and can input them with “templates “ that are basically awesome quotes that you see on Pinterest or Facebook except you can edit the words, font, and color even the alignment ! Highly recommend !!!! I used it to sell things on offer up , eBay, or any site because it enables you to put everything on the first photo along with the price or info in a eye catching design that entices buyers to click to view your item(s)!!!
  • So much fun! Aug 22, 2020

    By YachtieM
    I’m having a lot of fun designing my own inspirational posts from my own photos. Adobe PsX makes this very easy with the editing of each layer. There could be some minor improvements, eg in the stroke for fonts (I haven’t figured out to cancel out of that once it’s in place without deleting the text and starting over completely) and the choice background color of the message in combination with the font color (which I would like to be able to make my own combinations for), or the spot correction that doesn’t allow for spot darkening/lightening, as far as I can tell and the spot correction that takes a blob from not always the best next spot over & creating a layering of branches instead of a darker spot in the background kind of thing. Overall this app provides a lot of excellent features. There are also other Adobe apps that connect into it with ease, but I haven’t had the need to use them in conjunction with this one. My concern is that at some point Adobe will turn around and charge me for use of the whole thing or have a monthly subscription for it making an older version obsolete, as is my experience with another Adobe product I used for years and don’t use enough to get a monthly for. This trepidation and minor adjustment mentioned above (maybe I need to check out the help section on this) made me drop a star. In the end Adobe is amazing and does deliver with its photo development apps.
  • Good app with lots of potential! I see some areas for improvement. Nov 17, 2021

    By cindypain
    I love Adobe and all of their products. The app is great, although I’d like to see more features and creative options. Also, I think the user interface could use a little bit of work. Right now the UI seems cluttered and a bit too ‘square’. A modern UI update that is more user friendly would be very beneficial. Besides those minor comments it’s a wonderful app! Even though I’d like more features, the functionality is there. Adobe did a good job combining their previous apps into a single, more integrate app. Now that they’re done with that it’s time to clean it up a bit, update the UI, add some industry-leading features in, and watch it take flight!! 🛫 P.S. Adobe if you’re reading this, you’re doing great sweetie! 🙏 I’ll be a customer for life (when I can afford it #ThankYouStudentDiscount 😅) and I’ll be cheering you on from the sidelines! If y’all ever need more constructive feedback let me know. And hey, if y’all ever need a bright young mind full of ideas, I’d love to work with/learn from you guys in any way I could be helpful. Adios for now, compadres 🤠

    I use this app a lot express myself by typing over pictures. What I find missing is shadows for the letters, better control over the alignment too. These are attributes that could be improved. Also, I haven’t found any way to coordinate the text and the picture after I type the text. Otherwise, this app serves me pretty well. I’ve tried other apps, but for me Adobe serve me the best. Although I find it a bit expensive, I decided it’s worth the cost. It gives me a huge variety of ways to express myself in a creative way. They’ve been in the business about ever since the dawn of the PC. They know what they are doing, the product is reliable and it works. But with every new product the learning curve is getting out of hand. I like to learn on the fly in my own projects, and an integrated Ai voice guide would be a great improvement, because I don’t like looking at some instructor on another screen with all their blah blah telling me how to do their project. They make me feel like a child, it’s annoying and a lot of what I learn gets lost on the way trying to capture the essence ce of what I want to learn.

    Easily a 5 Star app if not for adobe’s constant angling for more money and more user data, updates that reduce functionality and unexpectedly lock you out of the app just so they can demand your email address in order to track and market to you. They already had the market cornered and had one of the most loyal customer bases of an software company that they’ve built up since the earliest days of Macintosh computers. They are ubiquitous in the desktop publishing industry world wide with zero competitors in sight (at least once quark dodo’ed out). Now that they’ve introduced their monthly leasing structure for their flagship products they are not only destroying what they’ve built up until now but more importantly they’ve stopped cultivating younger generations of loyal users who will choose other photo editing software packages that have a relatively minimal one price tag. No ones going to stop using photoshop who’s used it for years but students and other new users will be using other more affordable options. Basically I rant to say that adobe decided to bleed the goose that laid the golden egg for bigger quarterly gains. Suckers ruining a good thing. But this app for the iOS is on point and tight, if you know what your doing and not just interested in pre-fab filters there’s an impressive amount of photo editing options here. Get it together before that golden egg laying goose flys the coop.
  • Please help🙏🏻 Jul 1, 2020

    Hello, I know I probably won’t get a response but it’s worth a shot. I have downloaded more photo editing apps than you can imagine. I have tried so hard to figure this issue out and I can’t for the life of me. So I’m really desperate at this point. Can you please tell me how to resize an image without compromising the photo? PSexpress gives you the aspect ratio presets for different social media platforms to choose from. But, it doesn’t matter what I choose because it always cuts off my photo. I don’t want to do that. I want to be able to fit in the FULL size photo. If it means I could crop it into being a full sized photo, I would be willing to loose on the quality. And, I don’t want to put it on a white background so that the photo fits in that square because I would still be loosing on the photo. I want to be able to resize to whatever dimension I need to in order to fit the photo in different social media platforms. I know that a lot of these platforms automatically compress the photo for you but, I would like to resize it before I upload so I don’t compromise the photo, and it doesn’t get cut off. I have watch many videos yet, I can never get it. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could suggest what I can do to fix this frustrating problem. I would be so grateful!!
  • A mixed bag... Nov 15, 2018

    By GGTriGeek
    There are some things I really like about the app, and some things I really dislike. Positives: I really like the ability to create custom looks. This is a huge time saver... pull up a photo, apply your own personal style, and the photo is ready to save. I also like the adjustment tools as a whole. They are intuitive, easy to use, and cover my needs for post processing. Negatives: I hate the social part of the app. Every time I start the app, someone’s hoot pops up and I need to exit this to get to my photos. For social feeds, I use Instagram and I shouldn’t be force fed social media just to modify my pictures. This is a more recent update... you didn’t get that splash screen in the past. Ideally we should be able to disable this in settings. The other negative is the app can be slow or crash at times. This has happened for well over a year, and I originally thought it was my old iPhone. Nope... same issues when I got my iPhone X at the end of last year. It will freeze on a photo and take a couple of minutes to make one adjustment. This doesn’t happen in other photo processing apps I’ve used, just this one. Overall, it’s still the app I use most often for ease of use... I just wish the social splash could be turned off, and that the stability would improve... and I’d give it a 5.
  • Powerful app when it works Dec 31, 2021

    By Airika8oh
    I love using this app to quickly edit my cell phone photos. The variety and ease of the tools are great and allow me to make precise edits to get my photos to look exactly the way I want. I have many presets that I’ve created and saved to the “My Looks” menu that make it easy to replicate my favorite edits across many photos over time- a huge benefit to speed and consistency. However, the app is buggy. It freezes or crashes often. It can be very slow and get “stuck” when switching between menus in the app. And sometimes, it just won’t open certain images. These issues have not been a deal breaker for me- usually shutting down the app and restarting is all that is needed. But it is frustrating and slows down the process when I’m trying to edit several photos. One other wish for this app: once I save a series of edits to “My Looks”- I can no longer see the edit “recipe” for that edit. I wish there was a way to look at the “Looks” you’ve created and see the edits that you used to create that look. Overall, great app- very powerful and gets used almost daily. Like most things in life, does have room for improvements.

    I love this app! My phone doesn't have any built in editing software (other than cropping). But i have one problem. The back button and the undo button are right on top of each other. I have to close the app completely to edit other photos. Please fix this!

    I enjoyed it much better when all of the features were free if I wanted to pay for a photo editor, I would have gotten the full Photoshopped program. The only reason I used it was because it was free. Now, I will be working with another free photo editing app. You companies are too greedy. What's the point in making people pay for damn near all of the features, when you have Photoshoppe for that!?
  • Jan 7, 2022

    By Steph & James Hayden
    This has been convenient for absolutely basic single-photo editing and for combining photos with zero modifications, but right now I'm trying to juxtapose 2 photos and rotate one of them, and the "edit photo" functionality is just an endless spinner, Evan after a reboot. I don't know what it's waiting for when both photos are local files, so all I can conclude is this is basic functionality that just doesn't work at all.

    With affinity photo and other zillions of this type of app out there, this is kind of an embarrassment. To each their own, and not knocking anyone for liking it, but as a professional, this app - and their others - are not what you’d expect from adobe if you’ve relied on them for desktop software in the past. I can see plenty of instagrammers and selfie takers loving this, and that’s great - it’s nice to go beyond what apple stock apps and Instagram filters have to offer. 👍 However - Their scatterings of iOS apps meant to ‘add up’ to a pseudo-desktop ‘suite’ of features and offerings is exactly that - scattered. And highly frustrating because of it. There should be a much more robust amalgam of these apps for the iPad. Which the competition has already completed, so one must assume that adobe was and is always going to consider their iOS apps as lightweight apps for your phone only. Too bad, really. I appreciate adobe sketch, and I know that some of these apps have some perks and are designed fairly well, so it’s not like incompetence, it’s a plain and metered decision by adobe. With their pricey subscription model on desktop, and this ‘strategy’ for iOS, I can’t see them being top dog for much longer. Affinity and others may swallow them up while they remain somewhat oblivious and/or too profit-minded to survive this mobile/new-school editing software revolution.

    Have been using this app for years, but there have been significant issues in recent months. They are removing existing features from the app and requiring a subscription to use them. Still an okay option, but a bad choice from them to try to strong-arm existing users into a subscription.

    Used as a free app for awhile, then I paid for the premium version, and absolutely nothing changed! I have NO access to the premuim options even though my status now says subscribed to premium. What is going on??? Why do these tech companies keep making people pay for more problems! I'm not buying problems damn it. I am buying a premium app or service.

    This app was great when free. It's not photoshop, just quick fixes to enhance your photo. I only ever used 3 things on app now one is locked up bc need to pay. Get a real photoshop download on ur computer If your into spending your money and want photos truly enhanced. Use whats free. Full version not worth it.

    By Sheila Letkeman
    Most features require paid premium subscription. I downloaded this app specifically to use the blur background feature in pictures. However, that tool is part of the paid subscription only. The free stuff in this app is just about the same tools that are already provided In my cell phone camera picture editing software. So this app is completely useless to me, uninstalling immediately.
  • StopPromoting me to review this Mar 24, 2021

    By neverusingticketmasteragain
    Iv reviewed this app like 20 time and continue to get printed to(like there isn’t even a x to close the window it just keeps bringing me here. And it’s always when stuff gets worse. Stop asking me to review it lol I pay for the premium or whatever and I’m bombarded with stupid “adds” while I can only edit photos 10/20 at a time before everything I click and every file prompts “cannot be opened”. Reset the app and I can edit maybe 6 more before the errors come again. Random crashing as if I actually go on a streak of editing without errors, but that’s less frustrating than having to reset the app every 10 minutes so I can actually get some editing done... Also the update that made it so I can’t access/edit photos from my own phone, on because the app needs to now be connected to the internet so you have the option to post on their “social media” built in dashboard.... I don’t want that.... I want to edit my photos..... I don’t need to see other peoples work(even if it is cool) I need to edit the photos on my phone so I can download/upload/take more photos to continue the cycle.... Ask me to review. I do it because the close button is blocked, do a stupid review, go back edit one photo and BOOM REVIEW OUR SHITASS APP. Well it would be better if I didn’t have to review the app every photo I crop and and center.... plus whatever else I wrote before...

    It saddens me to give photoshop express such a low rating, since I have loved it for so long, used it for years on my photos! but after this recent update i now have to pay to use edits that were once completely free. Not only do i have to pay at all, but *monthly*. That is absolutely ridiculous. Adobe is successful enough not to need to raise rates on one of the few free apps they have. I'm really disappointed. 😞

    Find ANY other photo editing app!! Adobe has done an outstanding job of screwing up a perfectly good application. This used to be my "go-to" app... NO more cause of pure greed. COSTANT INTERRUPTIONS looking for a premium subscription. I'm out and going straight over to Snapseed, or Pixlr, or polarr or anything else that doesn't rudely interrupt my photo editing process. Like I said this used to be my go-to app but now I seriously hate it. BTW your email is not even valid. WHAT A JOKE!

    I loved the app & save had it for years! It was easy to learn & I could do the most amazing edits & restorations with it! Today, however, I tried to make a few edits & it was wouldn't save my work unless I started paying for it yearly/monthly. I would pay $20 or $25 to get this app, but I'm not paying money every month to use it! That's ridiculous! You people make more than enough selling your full versions! I am so disappointed! I won't be using it again. It will be uninstalled shortly.

    Super disappointed with the app version of Photoshop. I understand limitations with transferring a desktop program to an app, but basic functions are missing here. This app is fine if you want to put filters on a photo, and it does a great job of spot healing advanced sections, but you cannot even draw anything. I downloaded this app because I like to paint in Photoshop, but there are no options to do so here. Overall, the audacity to need a paid subscription to use this product is absurd.

    After using Irfanview for 15+ years, I find this and all other photo editoring programs very hard and not intuitive at all. Maybe it's because I'm 75 years old, but I like simple. I don't need 35 examples of edited pictures at the bottom of the page, that are too small to analyze, and clicking through them takes time. And what is the problem of saving to a folder of my choice? Why do programers think they have a better place to store these pictures?
