    This app is great. I enjoy the cutting feature and the variety of stock images and stickers etc. However, the 5 Megapixel cap on image quality is a real problem for me. When my handset is capable of 12 megapixel images, I'd expect a photo editor to improve my images not make them look worse. This app would be a solid 4-5 stars if this issue gets resolved. Thank you. EDIT: What's with all the fake reviews? Maybe, spend more time developing your app?

  • by JOLEEN NORDSTROM

    I have a ton of photo apps, this is by far three best one! Many features and lots of tools to make your photos stand out! Love it! UPDATE! THEY JUST STARTED TO CHARGE FOR "ALL" OF THEIR FEATURES. THIS WAS MY GO TO APP! DELETING IT NOW. WHAT A JOKE THIS APP TURNED INTO! PLENTY OF AMAZING APPS THAT DO NOT CHARGE FOR EVERY EDIT.

    Been using this for a long time. Uninstalling. 1. down-res'es large image files rather than maintain original image quality. 2. App has become an ad factory. Intrusive: always on screen, pop up half and full screen in between image mods. 3. Pushes notifications when not in use. 4. Devs adopted subscription service model rather than buy-once. App is good but not good enough to be subscription. Leave that model to truly pro software.

    What the **** I can't open this bloody app .. It shows to log in and after clicking..it tells Oops .. Something went wrong... plz try again...how much time I wanna wait? I'm trying continuously for two days and no response . I have been using this app for two years....This update and new discoveries SUCKS Totally! ! I need that previous version back.... This update is too cruel .... Mind it !!!!!

  • by Dharna Dhing

    Install only for the "caricature" feature but nope this app doesnt do that.. you need to pinch and reshape. You cant even pinch in zoom mode so you will ended up messing the whole photo.

  • by Dibber Ravenscroft

    i used to love this app. i purchased the premium and it was brilliant but it never mentioned when i originally purchased it that they were going to change it to a subscription rather than a one off purchase. i now no longer have the premium and was never informed it was goin to happen. not best pleased :(

  • by Ashley Ingwerson

    loved this app until the last update.. i was supposed to have paid a one time fee to unlock everything but that apparently got voided under the new version... angry and disappointed. will not be using again!!!

  • by A Google user

    I bought this almost a year ago to get rid of ads and to support the dev for a great app. Today when I run it the ads are back and features are limited without a subscription. If the dev wants to move to a subscription model, fine. Create a new app in the store and stop supporting the old one. I want the app I originally paid for!

  • by A Google user

    I seemed nice until I found that it runs in background and sends me push notifications with "usage tips" and no option in settings to turn it off! So the only way to shut up such app is uninstall

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Pretty crappy

    by Brit_ta_nee

    Not user friendly at all. The videos at supposed to be helpful but they are so fast and look much better than quality you actually get. The pictures are constantly rotating in the app so it's impossible to edit. I have a free app that works better than this one!

    lame si far

  • 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

    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

    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.

  • 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.

  • Horrible

    by Dickey38478

    This was a fun app before it started freezing up my phone. I can no longer use the app due to this issue. Don’t waste your $3. The new update did nothing.

  • Not good.

    Not good, would rather save the money.

    Extremely slow processing

  • Don’t Buy

    by croger1998

    Downloaded the app. Consistently crashes and didn’t work as advertised. I absolutely would love a refund.

  • Not what I expected

    by jrd0414

    The free app "Back Eraser" is so much better and accurate to cut a picture out. I wasted $3 for an app that just gets close some of the time!!!! Very disappointed I wasted my money and already had a perfect app.

  • Not working at all
