    This is going to blow your mind. My phone is capable of nearly 50MP RAW images. Are you going to support this ever? Or at least something considered high resolution in market place where mobile cameras are mostly now at least 12mp or much more. I want this to be my editor, I really do but you need to give us some level of PRo functionality in terms of raw format support. Could the developer please respond? Thank you

  • Let Me Just Say.. "Wow."

    by DrPickTay

    I have to say, I absolutely love this app. If there was one app for all of the photo apps that you would ever need, it's this one. Although, I do find some imperfections within the app. When using the "Blend" feature (after I have merged two photos) I attempt to erase the overlying image, only to find that the erased outline doesn't come out as precise as I would like. Maybe this could be improved upon by adding a zoomed-in, magnifying window to this Blend feature? Another few drawbacks that I have noticed: the brushes are sometimes not small enough to receive "detailed" precision (but this can also be due to a lack of an increased zoom.. which should be updated to zoom as close as we would like. Also, when the magnifying glass appears when I'm attempting to whiten teeth (among other edits), the magnifying glass will not show any changes that I make in real-time, making it hard for me to see what I'm actually changing in the picture (as my thumb is in the way)--> please update these features? Preciseness is the only aspect of the app that I would wish to be improved upon. LightX has set a new engineering standard for all photo apps! That being said, I have deleted every other photo editing tool on my phone (save for my stock camera app). Keep up the hard work!

  • Amazing

    by piepieapplepie

    Honestly, I never pay for apps. I was hesitant in buying an app, but it was so worth it. This app is great. I can do everything. There are a few bugs though (under splash, the first time using erase or draw makes a streak on the picture)(using magic eraser sometimes takes the brush off of sharp points in pictures). Other than that, it’s amazing. I just wish under splash there was a “pick color from picture” option, like for “doodle” in another app “Pixlr” (the button looks like a dropper). Also, I’d like to be able to color over black. I usually make black items lighter and then color them in, but I’d love to just color over it and skip a step. Keep up the good work!

  • by Aashish Kaji

    Loved it. Supported them from beginning.. And now It worth so much. Thank you lightx for my lifetime subscription. Love you. Keep getting better. Will reiview in my blog as well.. Old Review: There's reason why people should buy it. A lot of reasons actually. Photoshop of Smartphones. Already impressed and bought while testing beta. Keep making editing wonderful #LightX as user, I am always hoping for more features in future. All the best and thanks to the team.

  • Amazing photo editor!!!

    by Samantha Ritchie

    I love this app! It has so many features, and new ones are added throughout the year. Once you learn what each feature does, you can create some really cool images. I love the background feature because it doesn’t look overly fake. Each feature is easy to use and they give you very clear instructions to help guide you. For $3 it’s totally worth it. I’ve never had any of the issues others mention with the app crashing, it always works well for me. I would highly recommend this app

  • Works sometimes

    by hafman42

    After reading many positive reviews I bought the app. I found the cutout tool to be very hit and miss. Mostly miss unfortunately. For some reason I can't zoom when doing the cutout which makes it practically impossible on a phone sized device with anything not large in the frame. Maybe it's better on an iPad. "Retouch" does better at the cutout and healing brush type of tools I've found. In summary, it works sometimes, then it's great, other times it's just easier to use photoshop. Lastly the tutorials get really annoying. It's pretty straightforward to use the app because it's like many others. The tutorials should be opt-in not mandatory.

  • by A Google user

    i find this app to be entertaining and useful at the same time. developers are active,creative and doing great job by adding new features . have very high hopes and believe this app is going to be great success. only thing that left a bitter taste in my mouth is customer support. no reply via facebook message while i had minor issues with the app.

  • Awesome photo editing app!

    by Sassyangel82

    This is an awesome photo editing app for amateurs like me. I love the quick instructional video before you go to use a feature for the first time. I use this app to edit clothing photo shoots for our online retail business and it works great! One suggestion for improvement would be to allow multiple undos instead of undoing all the edits with one click. Sometimes I'll make a small mistake, but when I press undo it takes away all the edits I just did and I have to start over again.

  • by Hakimi Jamai

    It's been more than a year since i have installed this app. First time in the beta user, I do miss my art that i did in this app. Very smooth. I did have a pro version before this new pro version coming out, and it was not what i expected. I downgraded again to a free version, which become very lagged because of the presence of ads. i should tell this to the developer because i was the early user to download this app. now, its the end journey for me with this app. tq for having me with your app.

  • Could you also add video editor to take out stuff

    by thejondaddy

    This app is really nice and really perfect to use when wanting to crop something out or take something out and add to it I would really appreciate a video one where you could edit your video and crop and take out any background you don't want you clearly care about your app and the people who use it and I would like to say that doing this video thing would jump the roof and rate it even better then a 5 and a half

  • by RFM SPAWN KILLER

    This app is very helpful, I really like it! Some people are just stupid rating 1 star only because this app has ads.Almost every app has ads. Don't get disappointed by this people, you made an incredible job here. Keep it up! :)

  • The Finest Editor I ever found

    by James Walnut

    It has everything I need in order to manipulate, create, edit, add title photo, title styles, delete, change size, color, skin tones, fast touch Editor, transparency, dissolve and so much more! It’s just wonderful what I can do with it, just with imagination I can do anything with it! Thanks, love your luxury logo on my iPhone plus looks so much beautiful, you guys take care every detail and please keep it getting better according to the new releases of the new technology, thanks again 😃👍

  • Great product for secondary picture editing

    by RasJahTrini

    A very useful app that has many features from creatively adding effects or editing colors in a picture. This app can also blend pictures together and add text. I would even add a couple extra arrow heads to the "color mix" to blend better, more presets in the "blend" and a color wheel to the "filters, retro" tab. (Modifying the filters further will be the next step) Overall, the selfie feature proves to be highly overrated!

  • by A Google user

    Very very nice app. It is very easy to use. It helps me a great to edit photos. It can also make you white if you are black in colour. You can use this app in many ways. The best photo editing app I had ever seen. Thanks a lot LightX..... But the problem is that if you can not buy the pro you can not be able to use more features but without pro also it has many great features. But I request the app developer to make some features free to us.

  • Love the app BUT......

    by A Real One

    I have been using this app for about a week before the update and I was in love with it and would’ve gave it a 5 star rating but after the recent update I cannot complete any of my photo edits. So once this bug is figured out I will be able to give the app a better rating. The issue I am having is when I add a background from my photo library it never finishes loading it stays on the loading screen. The app preset backgrounds work fine but not when you go to add your personal backgrounds. Please update and fix please and thank you.

  • by Paul Bassinder

    Overall a good app with many functions. However, the text function only gives you straight line options and I cannot see a way of copying specific colours feom one part to another (i.e. with text). If there were curved text options and a way of copying colour options from thing to another I would have given it 5 stars.

  • Love the app

    by Brians_schmu

    I have used this app quite a bit. I like to use it to tweak some of the colors autostyles in other programs use so the are more to my liking. I also love the blend function and many of the effects that have been released thus far. I agree that a little more precision would be nice. Also a redo button would be helpful, especially when I undo something I didn’t mean to. A way to zoom both layers in the blend function would help with editing. That said, I am sill using the app all the time.

  • by Ron Wynyard

    I thought this was a great app until I had to suddenly pay to use some of the features that were previously free. I have no qualms paying a reasonable price for a good app I use a lot... but I will not pay an on going subscription fee for something I can still find in other apps for free or a one off price. Shame, I liked this app, but I'll be using it less if at all now. Oh.. and the new adds across the page suck as well.

  • What Happened?

    by jhallstrom76

    I've been using this app for a while now, and it was my go to app for all things photo editing. However, in the past update the color shade adjusting button has disappeared and has not been replaced or added to another feature within the app. Without this feature it's very difficult to edit photos with only their preset filters that are provided. Please bring it back!!!!!! With those features this app is an easy 5 star. With out that fundamental feature this app is no longer the premiere photo editing app.

  • Hello developers

    by Abo khaleel

    I use to love this application but not so sure anymore. This new update is not user friendly like the one before this. I loved them old virgin and i wold bye it again if its available. Otherwise i use this app for all my Photo shops is just a little bit difficult to do what I used to do at ease before this update. It takes a little bit of work and to know what to do to mix the pictures and Photoshop them bottom line Developers please please make it user friendly like it used to.

  • Needs Work

    by Anonymous Sandwhich

    The app is good and offers a lot of features that are desirable for a mobile editing app. An issue I have with the app is its problem with precision. I found myself getting very annoyed using the select and erase options when editing hoar color in selfie. it would randomly make the whole background a certain color or ye "brush" or lines you drew with fingers were too big which resulted in me erasing a lot of what I made. It would be great in a future update if they made an option to thin or thicken the lines in selfie editing or any other editing.

  • Closest to photoshop I have found.

    by p3ach143

    Similar tools and familiar interface as photoshop. Of course,Photoshop is the standard, but for a phone App this is pretty amazing. I've already switched faces on an image. It is totally worth the cost for those that never save or post a photo before editing them. I also like the focus shift also, though there is still one App I prefer for depth of field adjustments and burning and dodging, but this one is still my new #1.

  • LightX

    by Averagesexy Nerd

    As someone who takes photographs of my action figures with app helps add another dimension to pictures. This is my first experience with photoshop & found this app very easy useful. The video tutorials are a huge encouragement to try new techniques. I found myself having tons of fun taking pics & playing around with the backdrop, lighting etc. So glad to report that this isn't a waste of money & only motivates me to take more pictures.

  • Great photo editing app but just one thing

    by MaximumMark1426 (mxm1426)

    This is one of the greatest photo editing apps ever created! Especially with cutout features and blending all in one app. But there is one issue with the cutout feature, the cutout is very choppy and cannot get the precision cutout that I was hoping for like in the screenshots of this app. Please fix this because I really want to use this feature but just can't right now. This app deserves a 5 star rating but the cutout needs to be fixed, great job and thanks!

  • by Krishnan Subramanian

    I bought the premium version before, and now asking for subscription to use premium features. < Able to fix the issue with log out and login in the app as per the developers advise. The developer should make known resolution to such issues. It is a great app, functional and editing made easy.

  • Absolutely Amazing

    by Cj Dawson

    Not one to usually write reviews but i’ve been using this app now for a few years and it has been everything I needed and more. I was looking for an app to be able to edit out funny pictures of my friends and this app is a mini photoshop in the palm of my hands. Would totally recommend for anyone thinking of purchasing; easily the best investment i’ve ever made on an app.

  • Tossing ALL my other Photo apps!!

    by JenniferWolf

    I hardly ever write reviews on anything, but I'm just so thrilled with this app I can't help but share my joy in finding it! I'm a professional photographer & most often feel I need to go into photoshop etc to make my iPhone images look the caliber I'm desiring. The tools given here are so broad & so user friendly...I'm thrilled! Thank you, thank you!

  • by Daryl Chua

    The best photo editing as far for my needs. Background erasing. photo merge (double expose). common filters/effects. the closest to mobile Photoshop, and it's FREE!

  • Unbelievable!!! 50 stars!

    by bryanelidimas

    It had been so long since I bought an image editor app, and as I’m using this LightX, I cannot believe how far we’ve come with technology. I’m in love with LightX and my new iPhone’s large screen. I’ve been able to salvage a lot of great pictures that had an imperfection or two with LightX. Thank you for the amazing work on this wonderful app!

  • by A Google user

    Love the app my fingers are bleeding i use it so much. wont give 5 stars because every time I come close to finishing it some how deletes my work or backs out. If I exit out it also doent save so I lose everything.

  • After I updated

    by SpenceMeadows

    So recently just updated And so far everything is working great power sorry I could never pinpoint exactly what had happened it would crush for multiple reasons, but it’s fixed. Back to being the best app for photoshop ever. I use this daily for my photos of my work. So glad it’s working again.

  • Didn't expect these many features! It's just fabulous!!!

    by Masaala

    Pretty handy on my iPhone to quickly edit images. Responsive and easy to use photo app that has several features. I would highly recommend this app if you like to be professional with your photo posts.

  • I was skeptical

    by Cable312

    Was skeptical at first saying this top the charts made me buy it but once you have the time and patience and you really get to make some pretty awesome photos with it very simple and easy to learn like the pop-up explanations a must buy for every person that likes to take photos That should be everyone LOL

  • It’s an amazing app!

    by mantharraya

    Downloaded it about a month ago. It was working perfect. Until yesterday that updated it. Now it freezes my whole phone. It responses a minute later. Hopefully i’m not the only one with this issue. So you guys can take care of this problem. Cause like i said it’s an amazing app. It’s just this minor problem. Thank you

  • Please add content aware scaling

    by Diego DeMarte

    I already love this app because of the tons of things you can do for only 3$ like the splashing and adding backgrounds with amazing accuracy and i would love this app soooooo much more if you added content aware scaling to make my pictures look really funny for my friends.

  • Extraordinary

    by MyApplePodcast

    I love what the developers have done with this app! It literally feels like 10 apps in 1. I love the magic cut-out tools! Every tool is intuitive and easy to use. I wish there was a way to edit the text after it was added. I would go bonkers if this app was designed for the iPad.

  • I love it!

    by Knowmefirst

    I needed something that was close enough to photoshop, I was a bit reluctant to pay for this one but I gave it a go; and I don’t regret it. It’s simple, easy to use, and it gives you exactly what you need. It’s actually better than PhotoshopMix and I been using that for awhile now.

  • Good but needs improvements

    by Detyyyttt

    When I am cutting out an image I want to get it exact but it corrects to what it thinks I should select and not what I selected if I want something that's not part of a big object it will come out very ruff. I do also wish I could skip cut out when I have a picture I just want to overlay I wish I could just click next or at least have a select all button

  • Must have

    by Apashack

    I generally don't rate Apps. However this App deserves one. It's very to use and has built in video tutorials. It has all the tools you would need to edit photos. I was able to edit and get high quality results the 1st time I opened it. Well worth the $1.99 price.

  • Awesome app! Room to grow

    by Reeveale

    App is easy and simple to use. It's got some really sweet and helpful editing tools, but there are some small and minor details to each feature that I'm sure they will add and help refine the app in a whole. Very well produced app and an awesome thing to have on your phone!!

  • Definitely a Keeper

    by sowho4u

    As a photographer I have purchased many editing apps. Some are over complicated, some are just a waste of money, but LightX is definitely my new go to app! It’s an all inclusive, simple interface app that gives new life to any photo.

  • Updates continue to make LightX better!

    by MissJacuni

    LightX listens to its customers continues to improve its app. You rarely see a company hear the concerns of the consumers! If you thought it was user-friendly before, then it will blow your expectations out of the water now!

  • Amazing Promotional Graphic Art Resource

    by Animal|Inside

    My band, Animal|Inside uses this app for all their promotional graphic art. It's very convenient to be able to throw together a catchy poster or image to get our name out there. No matter what idea I have in my head, I have no problem making it materialize with LightX.

  • Update

    by Liceo ver

    I've been using it a lot and shuts off automatically whenever you try to edit change to many colors still needs a lot of work

  • Super easy and very helpful

    by its an ab thang

    I’m not a professional photographer so I need an app with a lot of tutorials and options. This app has videos that teach you how to do things step by step. With my Instagram growing by the day I definitely need all the help I can get!!

  • This app is worth it!

    by Bye_Bye_Felicia

    I love this app and prefer it over a lot of the other photo apps. The tools are easy to use for amazing effects. Change your hair color, blends photos, and etc. Also, they offer tutorial videos.

  • Worth the $

    by NatashaIsAwesome

    Best photo editing app I have used. Well worth the $2. Plenty of features and easy to understand. Don't expect to be able to do everything you could do on a computer, but the photoshop aspect is good for a phone.

  • Great app

    by rwalker6

    Admittedly difficult to use/get used to but incredibly powerful for an on your phone photoshop application. Have tons of fun with it and highly recommend it. Most negative perspectives will come from user error or unwillingness to tinker and learn

  • Loved it. Needs to fix stuff.

    by Pete schweaty

    I loved it but this last update has things to be fixed. There is now a hue on every object cut and the background picture gets more and more out of focus the more you load images. It wasn’t like that before. Please fix.

  • The best..

    by budsterjones

    This app is awesome! I find myself on it all the time. It is easy once you get the hang of it. Easy to learn. I could make pretty much anything it want to. It does crash on me from time to time but... who doesn't sometimes? Must have! Trust me!

  • ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    by 😎😎🐷🐷💪😂😤

    I bought this thinking it would have a few features but was surprised to see it had tons in closing ones only found on photoshop. Great job, definitely worth the money.

  • Update changes stuff

    by ThisCouldMeanDrugs

    I used to be able to use the Mix tool to to cut out any picture I had into what I was already working but now it’s the exact opposite. You have to cut out something from the picture you already have on the screen

  • I would give 5 stars before update

    by kingquiz20

    Let me star off by saying this great. Unfortunately they made an update to it. That took some of the tools from Blind. It 3 options before to cut out and blind now I can only add an image. Please fix ASAP.

  • I love it!

    by Jrraven23

    The best filters ever! I haven't even used all the features yet and this became my no. 1 app within the first 5 minutes of using it. The only thing... my music shuts off when I open the app. Still 5 stars!

  • A have to have

    by Betty High

    This app has saved my sanity when it comes to photo editing. Absolutely love it. Tutorials are shown when using a tool. Very user friendly and reliable. Totally worth the money.

  • Awesome App!

    by Dida61

    So glad I found this little treasure! Now I’ll be able to free up some space on my iPhone and iPad when I delete those editing apps that don’t do their jobs. This one does it all - one stop editing!! This is one awesome app!! ☝️👍🤩

  • Impressive!

    by Own froger

    There is a wide variety of tools available to enhance and edit photos to their maximum potential. I use this to get the perfect effects and personalize every photo to the exact detail I want.

  • Excellent multi-purpose photo-editing app!

    by BAR112

    So many features are available, such as cut-out, blending, filters, overlays, draw on photo, and many more. Only request would be landscape mode for iPad use.

  • LAG

    by shashas phone

    App is great but I noticed that in the last couple of days Light X frezzes to the point where I can't do anything. It shuts my app down and I lost all the project that I have been working on it. Please fix this.

  • May have found a great all in one app

    by Rdub56

    After a few minutes I can see that this will replace multiple photo editing apps. Keep improvements coming!

  • Great Software

    by Knoxville Disciple

    Very impressed so far, lots of features and easy to use. I've picked it up fairly quickly and have been very pleased with the results so far. Highly recommend it.

  • Lots of tools and easy to use

    by Guv_na

    A feature rich photo editing app that's easy to get the hang of. However, I think for this app to become a go to app for all mobile photo editing, it needs to add a good healing/cloning brush tool and even more preset filters.

  • Crush on lightx

    by Tamraofmorrigan

    this app got me off guard its super handy and there is most of all features i need to edit a pic only missing layers like in PS so i can edit several pics and manage it in same image

  • Amazing!

    by Coop Games

    This editor is like photoshop, but on mobile! It's very nice if you're just playing around, or actually editing something. The price is very good for an app like this. Would recommend.

  • My Fave Photo Editing App

    by xbradwebbx

    Absolutely love this app. The user interface is simple and intuitive for any level of photographer to use. This app really has any tool you could possibly need.

  • I like it

    by WhyCanINotUseMyName

    I've been searching for quite a while now for a photo editing app that does everything I need it to do and I think this is it. I'm just giving it 4 stars for now because I only just downloaded it.

  • Laggy

    by Shawnli

    This app is better than the one I've used in the past but the controls lag. Whenever I slide to the left or right on brightness, saturation, etc, theres a delay. There is also a delay when choosing the options like I just mentioned. Fix that and I'll rate 5 stars.

  • Needs improvement

    by KatoLives

    Got this based on review tally. The cutout is not good. But the biggest issue is the zoom. It does NOT let you zoom in to clean up the picture or cutout. Very frustrating. I like the app but don’t use it much because of these, and other, issues. PLEASE FIX!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Precision!

    by kgbizy

    Easily remove the background from a Photo with precision! My new fav...it’s an amazing toolset. Hard to believe all this can be done on a phone. This one will see heavy use for sure.

  • Amazingly simple and powerful

    by Jchbb123

    One of the best apps that I have used. The interface is simple and intuitive. I can't imagine a more photoshop like app packed into a phone app. Well done.

  • Looks better than actually is

    by Benro zunew

    Waste of money and editing is inaccurate... biggest waste of $2 I've made so far. I rate it as a 5 star waste of money.

  • Great app but some things are hard

    by Auman Family

    This app is great I just don't like the hardship of cutting something out it needs to be more simple as in when you try to erase it erases something you want to keep. It is still a good app

  • Worth the money!

    by Moobooshoe

    There are so many features to use, this app is far better than expected.

  • Processing

    by Fernando1662

    Since today’s update it has been stuck in processing with no end. Other than this it’s a 5 Star app if fixed .

  • BEST PHOTO EDITING APP

    by Danielshoe

    I've always been looking for an easy to use photo editing app that has many features that are usually very hard to do. This app is exactly that.

  • Compares closest to photoshop!!! Love it!

    by Loelasundae1

    I use it for the cutout tool. I take photos of my clothing for my business and the app makes it really easy to make them look professional.

  • Awesome app

    by Sleepswithdog

    Takes a little getting used to watch the tutorial. You will have it down in no time. everybody asked me what app I use I tell them lightX

  • Amazing

    by JackMonn

    I have been liking for an app or software that can do what this app can do for 6 months. I use the cutout feature on this everyday. Great app.

  • LOVE IT💕

    by ᖇᗩᐯEᑎ

    It was kinda hard to use this editor at first, but once i got used to it, I was able to create beautiful photos. I recommend it!!!!!

  • TRY THIS

    by TopherTheDrummer

    This app is sweet, I'm in no way a photo specialist, but with this app, you would think I am. I have had so much fun, and the instruction videos make things so easy

  • Zoom in for photo blend

    by Pelkey101

    If you could enable a zoom feature it would make it a lot easier and you would be able to have produce a sharper photo blend

  • Nice for the price!

    by LJ_Herbert

    This app is very intuitive there's lots that you can do and it really works well for mobile editing. Must buy great Build nice app!

  • Text not iPhone X compatible

    by KNykol82

    Great app but I was really expecting an upgrade to fix the text issue by now. Once you type, there’s no way to “go back” and place the text.

  • Reaction

    by TH3 S4RG3

    I have no idea how to edit or what I’m doing yet, well sort of. I just downloaded this and I’m blown away by how much control you have. Awesome app.

  • Not bad

    by Area76kevin

    So yeah the cut out feature of this app is awesome. A ton of other features that make editing on the fly super easy. A couple things I’d like so suggest to the developer: - the ability to easily choose black for text outline. I can’t figure it out. - I wish the app didn’t open to your Last edited file. I’d prefer a blank slate. Other than that, it’s a super nice app.

  • Thanks

    by Mhddb9

    Thank you dear for the great work and wonderful job that you did in the app it’s so helpful and useful .❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Keep going and congratulations for the fabulous work .🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

  • Enjoyed the app but no iPhone X support

    by cohenjer10

    It’s great app with nice features however no support for iPhone X screen. I will use other apps until it’s converted .

  • Wow I am impressed!

    by Robertsonchris

    I totally recommend this app, it's easy to use it makes a big difference on the photos.

  • Backdrop

    by Neteru9

    I just started using this app. I really dig the backdrop features. I’m still learning the app. It’s very user friendly and the tutorials are great.

  • Best app everrrrr!!

    by HandsumRob

    This app is well worth the money 💰 and then some. You can literally do anything with your pictures. I absolutely love it!! Great job you guys!! 👍🏻👍🏻

  • Amazing app for pictures editing

    by cryptoabiy

    I am not regretting for having this app It is more than I am expected and easy to do!

  • Great but...

    by afb3212

    I really like this app. I would like to see the cutout feature have a "smoothing" feature as well to smooth out the edges of a cutout, or even a fade out feature.

  • Fix the the fonts layout

    by Farrokh1987

    Please fix the text layout after selecting new font. It’s not showing correctly

  • Suggestion: adding your own photos for backdrops

    by tonnyvan

    I would like to see the option to add your own photos to use for backdrops.

    very good to highlight your photos! they make improvements in the content frequently!!

  • Meh

    by O lineman

    I bought the app. Wanted the cutout feature. It doesn’t come close to working as well as shown in preview or tutorial. I do a lot of post processing and find that Enlight and Snapseed are better apps. LightX is ok but behind those 2.

  • Decent app with a small learning curve

    by Mileen23

    I like how the app saves your drafts so you don't have to start all over. As you learn how to use the different features it allows you to create some great work.

  • Good. Can be better☺️

    by Anna Zhuk

    Itz fine. It bugs out sometimes. I mean good but I can only give a 3 star. Add more edits and I will change to 5 star.

  • Perfect

    by Eliasib Marin

    The best app to edit photos in a professional level! Easy to use and fantastic results!

  • Great app for the price

    by Skeletron2011

    I also have the competitor's app and this one is way better. I highly recommend LightX!

  • Great app

    by DeKAde73173

    It makes editing easy when I can't be at my computer.

    by Jrnet

    This app has always suited my needs. Very easy to cutout an image. Can we get an updated for the newest 2018 iPad Pro. It also needs landscape mode on the ipad.

  • Super easy and very helpful

    by its an ab thang

    I’m not a professional photographer so I need an app with a lot of tutorials and options. This app has videos that teach you how to do things step by step. With my Instagram growing by the day I definitely need all the help I can get!!

  • Love this apps

  • Backdrop

    by Neteru9

    I just started using this app. I really dig the backdrop features. I’m still learning the app. It’s very user friendly and the tutorials are great.

  • Absolutely Amazing

    by Cj Dawson

    Not one to usually write reviews but i’ve been using this app now for a few years and it has been everything I needed and more. I was looking for an app to be able to edit out funny pictures of my friends and this app is a mini photoshop in the palm of my hands. Would totally recommend for anyone thinking of purchasing; easily the best investment i’ve ever made on an app.

  • Love this App

    by Blackboriqua75

    Love this app makes editing super easy!!

  • Definitely a Keeper

    by sowho4u

    As a photographer I have purchased many editing apps. Some are over complicated, some are just a waste of money, but LightX is definitely my new go to app! It’s an all inclusive, simple interface app that gives new life to any photo.

  • Update

    by Liceo ver

    I've been using it a lot and shuts off automatically whenever you try to edit change to many colors still needs a lot of work

  • Needs improvement

    by KatoLives

    Got this based on review tally. The cutout is not good. But the biggest issue is the zoom. It does NOT let you zoom in to clean up the picture or cutout. Very frustrating. I like the app but don’t use it much because of these, and other, issues. PLEASE FIX!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Best app everrrrr!!

    by HandsumRob

    This app is well worth the money 💰 and then some. You can literally do anything with your pictures. I absolutely love it!! Great job you guys!! 👍🏻👍🏻

  • Excellent multi-purpose photo-editing app!

    by BAR112

    So many features are available, such as cut-out, blending, filters, overlays, draw on photo, and many more. Only request would be landscape mode for iPad use.

  • Funky

    by carmalinda

    Not always prescient

  • Not bad

    by Area76kevin

    So yeah the cut out feature of this app is awesome. A ton of other features that make editing on the fly super easy. A couple things I’d like so suggest to the developer: - the ability to easily choose black for text outline. I can’t figure it out. - I wish the app didn’t open to your Last edited file. I’d prefer a blank slate. Other than that, it’s a super nice app.

  • Don't hesitate to get

  • Please add content aware scaling

    by Diego DeMarte

    I already love this app because of the tons of things you can do for only 3$ like the splashing and adding backgrounds with amazing accuracy and i would love this app soooooo much more if you added content aware scaling to make my pictures look really funny for my friends.

  • Great App

    by rwalker6

    Admittedly difficult to use/get used to but incredibly powerful for an on your phone photoshop application. Have tons of fun with it and highly recommend it. Most negative perspectives will come from user error or unwillingness to tinker and learn

  • Amazing photo editor!!!

    by Samantha Ritchie

    I love this app! It has so many features, and new ones are added throughout the year. Once you learn what each feature does, you can create some really cool images. I love the background feature because it doesn’t look overly fake. Each feature is easy to use and they give you very clear instructions to help guide you. For $3 it’s totally worth it. I’ve never had any of the issues others mention with the app crashing, it always works well for me. I would highly recommend this app

  • After I updated

    by SpenceMeadows

    So recently just updated And so far everything is working great power sorry I could never pinpoint exactly what had happened it would crush for multiple reasons, but it’s fixed. Back to being the best app for photoshop ever. I use this daily for my photos of my work. So glad it’s working again.

  • The Finest Editor I ever found

    by James Walnut

    It has everything I need in order to manipulate, create, edit, add title photo, title styles, delete, change size, color, skin tones, fast touch Editor, transparency, dissolve and so much more! It’s just wonderful what I can do with it, just with imagination I can do anything with it! Thanks, love your luxury logo on my iPhone plus looks so much beautiful, you guys take care every detail and please keep it getting better according to the new releases of the new technology, thanks again 😃👍

  • It’s an amazing app!

    by mantharraya

    Downloaded it about a month ago. It was working perfect. Until yesterday that updated it. Now it freezes my whole phone. It responses a minute later. Hopefully i’m not the only one with this issue. So you guys can take care of this problem. Cause like i said it’s an amazing app. It’s just this minor problem. Thank you

  • Love the app BUT......

    by A Real One

    I have been using this app for about a week before the update and I was in love with it and would’ve gave it a 5 star rating but after the recent update I cannot complete any of my photo edits. So once this bug is figured out I will be able to give the app a better rating. The issue I am having is when I add a background from my photo library it never finishes loading it stays on the loading screen. The app preset backgrounds work fine but not when you go to add your personal backgrounds. Please update and fix please and thank you.
