    DO NOT DOWNLOAD! this app was terrible! and most of the stuff cost money! I couldn't figure out how to do anything! it wouldn't even let me make an account!

  • by Samuel Poudroux

    Would be a 4 or 5 star if it hadn't turned a 7mb 17MP picture into a 700kB 2MP pixelated mosaic artwork. In the app I had image resolution set to high, and when I saved it it was set to jpeg high quality. That did nothing. Any help here? Thnx

    You just need to make everything free because some people don't have money to be paying for stuff, so just unfair very body who is broke unfair.

    so I go on to make a video and it says a have to go pro and pay 10 quid a month

  • Waste of money. Too difficult to navigate

    by Khatndi

    This app appears to have many great features but in the end - are useless as the user interface is horrid. For a novice user, this is not a good app. As an professional with some IT background, I consider myself well versed in learning new technology and being able to quickly navigate around any new programs presented before me. Not the case with this app. Maybe others find it easier, but I don’t have the time and patience. I will search for another app.

  • Disappointing!!

    by pat who

    Too many flaws which leads to frustration instead of creativity. Tutorial is very poor. I sent a request for info on a problem; LightX asked me to send a photo trail of problem and I did. A day later, I forwarded a photo trail of a different problem. Still no answer on either problem. 10 days later, I requested a refund...no answer. This app. Is not ready for Prime Time, let along charging for a poor product. Why anyone is giving this app 4 or 5 stars is a mystery!

  • Not worth the Buy

    by Plz Read and Do Review!!

    I bought this mostly for the cutout tool, and it doesn’t work well at all. It says it is smart?? Well it isn’t. I outlined a person in a pic really well, and it cut out most of the person and half of the background. I have looked up stuff, and watched tutorials. They don’t help. I am pretty sure you could just get a free adobe app, and it would be just as good. Your welcome for the money.

  • Download Superimpose instead!!

    by davidmans

    I can’t believe I paid money for this. Superimpose is a far better app. Easier to use and waaaaay more options for ensuring your photo is precisely “cut out.” You can continue to perfect the image even after superimposing into onto the background photo. If you want an app for superimposing images, download Superimpose.

  • Crashes/freezes, lose your work

    by BoppieJC

    The app is a good concept, fun to use if it would actually save your work. I can't get through my project without it freezing on the "save". The app crashes and you lose your work and have to start over. After the third time of this happening I gave up.

  • I love wasting my time

    by ChristianKustomz

    Wow. $2.99 for nothing. Worst app ever. So you get me to blow my money in this worthless app and I get nothing. Thanks a lot. I have now wasted 3 $@#% hours making custom designs for my business only for the stupid app to freeze every single time. It just has a circle and says processing. I hate this app and it was nothing but a waste of money. I wish I could get my $2.99 back. Worthless!

  • Huge privacy document you must accept before using

    by Mom of 1000

    With the positive reviews, I decided to buy. I have not used the app yet because of the giant privacy document you must agree to before using. I am not too keen on giving up the privacy of my personal info, particularly my photos. Wish I had not spent money on this.

  • Crashes!

    by rushinca

    This is a really promising app that must be too big for its britches. Very inconsistent and crashes way waaay too often. Like every other time. I'm on an iPhone 7, have reinstalled, nothing works. It's just inconsistent. And that's a shame because when it works, it does some neat stuff

  • Buyer beware

    by alreadyhere12345

    The tutorials are more like quick frames to sell not to teach. This is not like an Apple product, it is not intuitive & requires a SLOWER teaching tool. You should NOT need to watch a video 10x’s & still question the process. I’m think I’ve given up, too frustrating.

  • Very poorly designed for $1.99

    by DoornickDriven

    This is a horribly designed, painful app to use. Go download Enlight for free and its way better. More user friendly. I can't believe I bought this for real money. I would like a full refund. Oh and also, I can't save photos. Keeps saying, operation failed. I have screen shots to prove it. What a joke.

  • by Bekah C

    Sure, maybe if you get the hang of the app it could be fun, but anytime I download a picture to put it on my drawing app, it downloadloads onto this app!! I want to punch the app. I might think about changing my rating if the creators of this app fix my problem. But until then: I DON'T LIKE THIS APP AND I AM NOT GOING TO USE IT ALOT. I might use a couple of times though. And that is my opinion.

  • LightX Express

    by Linwood K

    Will not let you use parts of the app w/o watching their tutorial...it doesn’t load, sends you back. The only things I am allowed to do are what my phone does anyways.

  • Grrrrrrrr

    by Whatdouwant?

    The tutorials are good. Possibilities seem endless. However. I can’t apply any to a photo! When I click on my photo it saves to Lightx. Where it goes from there I have no idea. Very disappointing

  • Crap

    by facebookisjunk

    All I wanted to do was be able to blur a face. Doesn’t seem possible. Not as advertised. Wish I could get a refund. Never again !

  • Trash

    by candisbaucb

    This app is trash not worth your money

  • Deceptive ads.

    by DIZEMAN

    The ads show a virtually flawless cut out just by using your finger to draw around the subject, but in reality, there is a lot of cleanup to do. Not any easier than other products. What do I expect for $2.99? To get what is advertised.

  • Deleted

    by DorwC

    I’ve definitely deleted the app weeks ago and I’m still being billed. “UNCOOL”

  • Horrible instructions.

    by Debr821

    The instructions are the worst.

  • I WANT A REFUND!

    by MJFrog55

    Does not work at all, much less how their “fabricated” demo videos show! Can’t do crap, then locks up when you try to get out of anything (“DONE”). It’s a rip-off, they just STOLE MY $2.99!

  • Beginner

    by Sassy723

    Moves to fast and not good directions

  • LightX

    by sc3slew

    Honestly watched the instruction video but still can’t figure out how to use it. It seems really confusing. Daughter looked at it for me and she works with computers. Said I should not have fell for it. Think she’s right but reviews were so good.

  • Terrible - not accurate - stick with photoshop

    by Lauralei57

    Maybe some of the features are better than the cut out - but if you can’t isolate an image easily - then what’s the point?

  • App freezes

    by Dogdad6

    Finding this app has a tendency to freeze. Then have to close it and start over. Not good, not happy. Using it on a new iPad Pro.

  • Blurs the cutout

    by #fakenews1

    I followed the tutorial and it did the same thing each time. Looks amazing until you try to complete or save it and then it makes the cutout extremely blurry. No thanks.

  • This is garbage, don’t buy it

    by frewhkjd

    Garbage

  • Difficult

    by cherylnewmex

    Difficult to use without instructions!

  • Awful

    by IM42NET

    Please refund my money. Was trying to do a simple erase. Even though I decreased strength, it erased too much. Tried to add info back in. It would only add a portion. Disappointed

  • Failure to Rotate on IPad Pro

    by RippedOffInNYHere

    Hi, Your app looks good but how do you make it rotate to landscape on an iPad. All other apps rotate but not yours. If it doesn’t rotate on iPad it is useless to me and I would like a refund

  • Very hard

    by Dhdgdjfuehsb

    Very hard to use and cut things properly. Then when background is picked you have to outline again. Final product never looks that great. Fake

  • Boo

    by gerynn

    It was an awesome app until it won’t even load and now crashes my phone any time I try to open it. I can’t even get the app to load. Not happy.

  • Download Superimpose instead!!

    by davidmans

    I can’t believe I paid money for this. Superimpose is a far better app. Easier to use and waaaaay more options for ensuring your photo is precisely “cut out.” You can continue to perfect the image even after superimposing into onto the background photo. If you want an app for superimposing images, download Superimpose.

  • Maybe it’s me!

    by Sharame

    I can’t get this app to do anything. The tutorial makes it look so easy, but it’s not. At least I only paid $2.99 for it.

  • Good app but crashes my phone every single time

    by Wings LLC

    Time consuming due to crashing problem

  • Garbage

    by Haven98

    I’m shocked that this app has so many positive reviews. I want a refund.

  • Not Impressed!!!

    by eloeb

    Portrait only mode? Give me a break! Stupid app asks for a review 3 seconds after you start using it?! Well… Here’s your review. Don’t buy!

  • Poor quality images

    by Hinks121487

    I use high quality images and alter them, but once I put them into LightX the quality goes to crap. A high def images becomes pixelated and unusable. Wish I wouldn’t have bought this app.
