  • Session Token is Expired May 5, 2018

    By Beth_JustBeth
    I’ve contacted support 3 times in the last few months about this. I have still received no feedback so I’m taking it here. I paid $6.99 to unlock all the extra stickers to edit my photos. Now, every time I go to use the stickers to edit my photo, none of them open and a message that states ‘session token is expired’ is displayed on my phone. I wish I could be given some information as to how to remedy this, as I’ve used this ap for years to edit my photos and always been pleased with it. However being ignored by the support team and not being given any help on how to use a service I PAID for leaves me no option but to rate this ap with 1 Star.

  • I love this app, but... Feb 9, 2020

    By shay_girl_shayy
    I’ve been using PicLab for years now. I love their features and think the variety and number of stuff you get from the package deal is awesome. But I recently got a new phone (iPhone XR) and the different screen makes it so some things aren’t accessible, such as the “Family & Friends” sticker folder. Additionally the ability to add shadows to things has just completely disappeared. I’m only giving two stars to bring this to their attention partly because I’m not sure where my mobile message to support went but also because I’m hoping that this is seen ASAP! Other than these minor glitches it’s pretty awesome, although the inability to have shadows does make it harder to complete a lot of projects involving pictures with text &/or sticker overlay. Hoping a fix for these issues might already be in the works, and if not then I really hope they will be soon! The one sticker folder I can live without for the time being, but the shadows I can’t given the type of projects I use the app for. I don’t want to go anywhere else but I may have to in order to complete my projects 😔 I’m really bumming out because this app has been my best friend since 2013! I’ll definitely be revising my review once I know it’s on their radar!

  • Paid for it twice still not working! Oct 5, 2018

    By Paragon5s
    I was using an iPhone 5s when I got this app. I paid to unlock everything. When I upgraded to an iPhone 8 plus (using the same apple id) I redownloaded it and restored purchases but it didn’t work. I contacted apple support and they told me to contact developer. As adviced by apple support, I contacted developer and it took them forever to respond. I decided to just pay to unlock everything again and didn’t bother wasting time waiting for their response. 5 months after, the sticker pack won’t download. The borders that I previously downloaded one by one have to be redownloaded again. This is very disappointing.

  • Text always gets cut off when adding to photo Apr 9, 2020

    By LJOY817
    I tried to add “National GO Red Day” to a team work photo and every time I save the photo, the word “Day” part gets cut off from the pic. Not sure why this is happening, since the text is all within the photo frame. This has happened to several photos where Happy Birthday would get cut off when I try to add my own text. I love the app but hate that how this always glitches with the text feature. Another issue is that I purchased the full sticker package and can’t select the last option “friends and family”. I have the latest iPhone and surprised how I’m unable to select it.

    I got this app for free a few years ago and paid the extra $6.99 to unlock everything. It’s a bit expensive to unlock everything at first, but it’s my favorite app for editing photos because of how many stickers and filters they have to choose from, and because of how easy it is to restore purchases. My only complaint would be that they removed the FRIENDS sticker package from the updated app. I understand it may not be as trendy anymore or there could be copyright issues, but I really liked being able to slap Joey’s face and catchphrase on my photos.

  • Needs work!! Badly Sep 28, 2017

    By evonbart
    I’m giving it a 1 star a few reasons. I really couldn’t tell what all this app could do and so I paid the full price for everything. Once I did that the shop page acts as if I still needed to buy separate items and when I went to change to the main page it prompts me to watch a video to remove the watermark. Excuse me? I just paid $6.99 for that (EVERYTHING). Strike one. Ok so I import a pic to edit and add a basic filter to. Even tapping ORIGINAL which should restore the image to its original state destroyed the original imported image and smeared it with this weird foggy layer - it’s awful and makes filters unusable for me where other apps work just fine. Strike two. Next I tried the magazine layout because that could be useful for some things I might do. Each layout has a template with words across but I couldn’t figure out how to edit the default text so it says useless things like PICLAB and never in my life would I need your app name on any project I’m working on. Strike three. DONE. I’m not asking for a refund because of my own idiocy. Don’t make my mistake thinking buying it will make it more useful. These guys obviously never tested this before shipping it out or don’t care what customers think. Either way enjoy my $6.99 - you deserve this review

  • What Happened Here??? Feb 29, 2020

    By PeteG0429
    I touch the text to bring up editing features like the three bubbles for shadowing and it no longer shows the shadows of any color on any color font! You can’t put letters on same color backgrounds anymore and when you use this feature it saves the top left portion of the text only??? What happened to this app? I didn’t pay money to have all of the features unlocked only to be screwed in an update! And it’s not a hiccup because I deleted the app and reinstalled it - in the immortal words of Yukon Cornelius...NOTHIN’ Well, you said you fixed the shadow effect for the fonts, but no! This recent update did not fix the issue that is most frustrating to me. And for you to give a response to say the problem is fixed is very disingenuous. I hope people read this and don’t actually pay money to unlock features if they’re only going to be changed or messed up and developers can’t even figure out how to make a small fix. Especially when it used to work just fine! Very disappointed 😔

  • My go-to photo editor Mar 30, 2020

    By Maryland RVer
    I often download whatever is touted to be the latest and greatest app. But for photo editing, PICLAB is the one I always come back to for reliable results. It is intuitive to use which helps us non-techies!!😄 If a bug pops up after an update, the support staff gets it fixed in a reasonable amount of time which is important to me in apps I actually have paid to use. I really enjoy sharing my photos after cropping and creatively enhancing them to suit my whim—thanks PICLAB for giving such a good assortment of tools all in one place!

    It's great. Happy I paid for it. Only things that would be more beneficial is option to adjust settings (eg contrast) by swiping across the screen, while able to see the whole image , instead of half of the screen being blocked out. An undo button would be good. As well as hold to see the initial picture before last edit to differentiate. And ability to invert shapes or anything added . Lastly an option to save a raw file that can be continued editing later would be Amazing. Thanks for everything so far. :)

    Good app. However, I think it would be a lot more easier to use if one was be able to scroll up and down the editing page, when editing captions. I need to go to the bottom of my sentence, where I would prefer the screen to adjust so I could edit my phrase from any part of that sentence.

  • Software has kinks Jan 23, 2021

    By The Lost Papoose
    I’ve been using this photo editor fir a year or so. I only use the basic package. If it was a seamless perfect software photo editor I would likely pay for the top tier photo editor. It works about half the time. Which means 50% of the time I have to re-do a photo edit or close the entire app and start over. I will say I’ve been able to get some cute edited photos of my grand babies using the basic package - it just took me a few tries to get there. I’m retired software / firmware training specialist so I feel my expectations for users is reasonable.

    Easy to use for what I do (adding my name to a corner of the photo) but I probably don't know half of what it's capable of. One thing -- you can't "begin typing" until you delete that begin typing text from the field.

    Simple and easy to get good enough results . Other apps had more confusing bells and whistles but I don't need to do anything more than fix color and contrast. I hope you have a sharpening control in the paid app.

    I just start using this, liked it well enough to purchase the full unlock version for $6.99. (12/14/19) I had a problem with my phone and had to reset it and then had to redo the pic lab app. I can't find the restore purchase. I am waiting to hear back from the developer on how to fix. When I get full use again I am sure I will give it a higher rating.

    These guys hit you up to purchase their premium plan right from the start. Then, once you finally find the folder and photo you want to edit, before you can even see the tool bar or options or anything, you have to sit through an ad. Maybe this app is great, but I'll never know since I simply uninstalled it after that. The devs might wanna consider being a little less pushy with the money grab right out of the box.

    I regrettably bought the watermark removal *before* I fully explored this app. What a mistake! The functions inside are so terrible, they are not how they should be. EX..the crop feature, it dosn't crop. It makes the pic bigger or smaller. There is no erase or un-do button. No before & after comparison feature. I can keep going, but its too much. Partial my fault for not making sure I liked this before a purchase. Other part on the Dev's side for making a sub par & very lacking picture app!

  • Issues with Text Box Sep 23, 2020

    By Actuary44
    I am having a very difficult time trying to add a text box to a collage. I would add one text box and be able to change the color of the text just fine, but when I add a second box, I am unable to change the font color or font style. Also when I finish editing a picture and save it to my phone, the result looks different from what I see as my final product. Text boxes not showing up or randomly placed on the picture not anywhere near where I wanted it. Long story short, there are a lot of bugs with this, and if someone can respond to this and fix the problem that would be appreciated. I paid for this app and it would be nice if it worked properly.

  • Very glitchy Jul 19, 2018

    By Dacagle
    I have had this app several months. I am unimpressed with its functionality. Problems have not been corrected with updates. Constantly freezes and certain functions will stop working mid use, requiring a reboot of the app. (Inability to change the color of the font is the one I run into most often). This closes out anything you were working on without saving it, so you must start over. I use this for business so it actually interferes with my work and wastes valuable time. I paid for full access to all features, and while I like the options it has, it isn’t worth all the trouble. I will be purchasing a new app for photo editing. Disappointed to have wasted $6.99.
