    I would give it five stars, but with the new updates and the store and everything I really don't like it and it's not what it used to be. It has tons of amazing features but now it's becoming more like all the other photo editing apps out there with the new updates. **EDIT** new phone. new updates. its been abt a year since i wrote this. still not there yet compared to what it was. good features though

  • by Vijay Tantry

    The new update didnt fix th3 initial issue. Not able to edit the pictures. HElpless again............. Same issue again. Not able to open pics or edit them as the app keepz going to main screen. Reinstalled the app. Same issue. I have paid for the software.. Need help at the earliest please. Now the paid feature does not work and i try to restore my purchase.. It does not recognise my login details at all.

    i only got this stupid app to write this reveiw.-----------------------> the amount of this app's ads i get in my other games is unbeliveable. if you dont chill on the ads, i wont hesitate to report your app. just a warning. be careful. once again, I WILL NOT HESITATE.

  • by Malcolm Critchell

    Pathetic!!! I've been using this app for ages and only to now have them charge for the app even with the amount of annoying adverts I've had to deal with. If it was £5 then fine, but £30??? Piss off. And you wonder why people use hacked versions of apps for free. Doesn't seem like a bad idea now...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • by P. Simcoe

    Really disappointed. I purchased the pro version of this app and now it's completely changed. It now requires the permission "run at startup" which is not necessary for any app that isn't a system app. Unless you've rooted your device one can not deselect this option. it also forces you to except their privacy policy to open it , but when you select the privacy policy you get a blank screen. So you agree to something you can't read, for an app that starts without your permission. Bad Form!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    by .BV

    Not good, would rather save the money.
