    If you want more Instagram followers, it’s crucial to diversify your content and have at least 3 to 5 different image templates. With VSCO, you’ll have the best in mobile photography, with lots of options to take and edit your photos so they’re perfect.

    If you're targeting to have a great feed, you need to make the best of the 3x3 grids available on Instagram. Editing and creating effects through filters is a great way to make sure you have a stunning feed. It's a great way to make your photos look professional too.

    When you're trying to get that perfect fall photo, your phone camera might not do the trick on its own. Instead of dozens of edits, use 1 tool to enhance every aspect of the process and capture the feeling of fall.

    In fashion photography, 2 or 3 touchups here and there are necessary for a polished look. Of course, it's also important not to overdo it. VSCO gives you full control so you can fix exactly what is needed - and not one bit more.

    Kinda annoyed that they recently took away even more filters and features unless you’re a member. I felt like the amount of available things was small to begin with but they took away even more?? Annoying. Another thing, I would personally enjoy if journals came back, I think they’re great for documenting travel, road trips and other fun experiences. I feel like journals are cool because you can include multiple pictures in one “post”. Instagram, for example, allows users to include up to 10 images as a part of their post. Pinterest now has a similar feature. VSCO doesn’t have any feature like this, where you can include more than one picture, so I think journals fill that void. Sometimes, I’ll take a lot of great pictures at a life event (prom, graduation, a vacation, etc.) but I don’t feel like I’m able to post all the pictures because it’d clutter up my feed. Journals could help allow me to post more. I also like how you could give them little titles and stuff. So cute! I also like how on this app, there are no visible likes and comments on posts—PLEASE keep it that way because it separates VSCO from other social media apps! I also feel more confident posting because I don’t have to worry whether something will get likes and comments or not. It’s nice because you also can’t see how many likes other people’s posts get. I think it’s great and it’s why I prefer this app to other social media apps.

    I really enjoy vsco, it’s a fun app I know many people who wish there were comments and likes things that normal social media apps have but I don’t mind, it has good filters but I wish there were more things for free. Don’t get me wrong this app has a lot of free things, but personally I’d love to have the filters the membership offers, but I don’t feel like paying money for it since I don’t use it to often. Just a suggestion. I ,however, do really enjoy the free Dsco feature I love taking short clips and I like how that’s free, it’s also a shame that I think you have to be a part of the membership to post videos. But unlike other apps this app has a lot more than just filters and has things like exposure and contrast to match what you think looks best on the picture there’s a large variety of things you can use to edit your picture, and I have to say they look amazing, I also like how you can repost it and favorite it, it’s different and I like how you can see the posts you have respirated, I also love the discover feature so you can see cool images that other people have posted I defiantly use the studio a lot to edit my apps, and I personally don’t own any social media but it’s cool that it can save to your camera roll and you can post it in other social media apps. Overall, it’s a great app and I would recommend it to a friend (I have actually)

    Great app, but it is progressively adding "premium" features each update and it's simply not worth paying money to edit an image. There are already many filters and such that were already premium. I don't necessarily think more needed to be added. To each their own, though. Pay at your own expense if you wish.
  • Love it, just a couple easy fixes! Oct 27, 2020

    By Evananderson517
    VSCO is my go-to for chill photo sharing and editing. Super simple and elegant. Just a couple things to fix: - On iPad, the feed always glitches and is a nightmare to use. The photos on my timeline will be super blown up, rotation to portrait/landscape mode always confuses the app, and it takes several attempts at quitting the app and refreshing the feed to be able to see the entire photo. I usually end up just going on my phone to enjoy my friend’s photos. - Discovering and searching for friends could be better. I often find my friends have an account, which is exciting but also disappointing because I wanted to find them sooner! Possibly integration with other social media channels or better account discovery would be nice. I would also love to discover more creators and amazing photographers outside of what VSCO reposts! - I also want the ability to search in my followers/ing list- I get it’s not supposed to be like a hyper-social app but it would be nice to quickly search for my friend and see their latest photography. - The recipes feature is really confusing- every once in a while I’ll try to figure out how to set it and change it and such but I usually end up manually editing the photo.
  • always room for improvement Jun 26, 2020

    I personally think VSCO is a great alternative to not only IG, but a great platform to share photos with other editors! I love the fact that there is no number associated with each post. All the social standards of having “a lot of likes/comments” is not an issue here. It allows creators to really just focus on expressing themselves through photo editing. I would like to say the same for video but it’s only available to members, which are those who can afford to do so; leaving those who aren’t as fortunate enough without that opportunity. I think making VSCO’s video feature free would really attract more users. In addition, I love how vsco can be easily linked to instagram (amongst other apps as well), but I dislike the fact that one must scroll and see every individual photo. I think if VSCO adapted a similar case to instagram, where photos are all in collages so that one can see multiple photos at once, rather than scrolling to view each individual one, it would be much more efficient. I guess being able to view VSCO through Instagram where one can see view multiple photos instead of scrolling down through every picture. Kind of like the desktop version of VSCO but on mobile (thru links). Overall, it’s a great app!!
  • Hate update from a while ago Jul 2, 2019

    By Nice and the best
    I loved vsco but I hate the storing now because it all goes to my camera roll but that just takes up more storage I like to keep my pictures I take on vsco on vsco and the only way I can keep them if I delete it from my camera roll is if I post it but I don’t post every picture I take I like to just mess around with some of mine that I don’t want everyone to see. Please fix this so many people have complained about it and still it hasn’t been fixed I about want to use a new app but. I think you guys should also add the feature to make our vsco account private. Another thing that irritates me is that if I delete my vsco or something happens or say I got a new phone when I download vsco again all my old photos will be gone and yes I know I can save them to my camera roll to back them up but I hate having my vsco pictures on my camera roll I got vsco so my friends could see my fun pictures that I edit I don’t want to have to save my vsco pictures to my camera roll or another app it’s just better to have them on there. Please fix this it’s getting a little annoying and infuriating. I would prefer to not have to switch to another editing app when you guys can just switch it back to the original version you had it.

    Well. The filters are great. The interface is nice and streamlined. I've really enjoyed it for the 2 weeks I've been using it. And yet. And yet. How can a photo app fail to detect newly taken photos unless I RESTART my phone? It makes absolutely no sense and is a massive inconvenience. It's beyond a bug, it's an issue that completely sinks this app for me and would give me pause about putting money into it again.

    Ok so I’ve had VSCO for a bit, and it was great, but recently they took away some of the filters and editing tools and made it so you had to pay and have like a membership to use them. THEY USED TO BE FREE! So I came on here to see if anyone else said anything and someone did, the response from VSCO was that they were sorry the user was having trouble getting the membership/tools and whatnot, that’s not the point, the point is we just want back what we had for free. You took away the free tools and made it so you have to pay for them. I just don’t understand. I rlly like them. But I’m sorry, I’m not paying for the membership, I never buy stuff or pay for premium stuff on apps. I guess I’ll have to deal with this. All I ask is to please give us more free tools and filters. Now for those who want the app, it’s nice, you can edit and post, follow ppl etc. BUT for lots of the stuff you have to pay to use it. VSCO, thank you for a great app. Thank you for making a good way to share with friends. Edit: I do suggest getting this. Sorry if this review sounds negative. I am just frustrated. I do think that this is a good app . I suggest this to anyone.

    Love using VSCO, very user friendly and produces high quality images. However, with their last update, they made certain editing tools that I use for nearly ever image locked and only for premium users. These tools have always been free to use the past 8 years I've had the app. I don't see why this was necessary and am very unhappy with the change.

    been using the app for several years now and i was really surprised to see some of the basic features being put into the membership program and requiring pay... some of the basic features included tone and clarity which can be easily used on another app. i get that apps are still trying to make money, but i don't believe that suddenly requiring payment for features that have been free on an app for years is the way to go.

    This used to be my favorite photo editing app but they are taking away features that used to be free in order to force user's hands into paying for a premium subscription. It's really disheartening to see how greedy this app has gotten. Will be looking for a new photo editing app from this day forward. Shame on y'all! You really think during a recession ppl have extra money to spend on features that were free up until now? Features I used that were once free : adjusting tone, grain, etc. Boo! 🍅
  • Not worth paying for May 16, 2022

    By KevinIsaiah
    I have used and enjoyed VSCO for years, but the newest update made a lot of manual adjustment filters (clarity, grain, etc.) locked for free users. Frankly, VSCO was a convenience app for me - I am not paying the equivalent of a streaming service every month just to have editing options on my phone that I can easily do for free on my computer. I have no interest in using VSCO as a social media platform, and I am disappointed they’ve removed so many manual adjustment options from users without a paid subscription. It is one thing to charge for preset filters and automated adjustments, but not manual ones. Further, I don’t support the subscription model - I dropped photoshop when Adobe decided you couldn’t own the software outright anymore, and I’m not going to support the subscription model for a phone app with far fewer features. If you’re willing to use the subscription feature then I’m sure you’ll enjoy VSCO, but I’m sick and tired of never ending monthly payments just because tech companies are trying to end outright ownership. I’d even be willing to pay a one-time payment option for premium (as in, pay a high flat rate once and always have access - NOT an annual renewing subscription), but I won’t support ongoing fees to manually edit my own photos. I’ll just use my computer. Disappointing to lose VSCO like this, but at least I’ll free up more space in my phone!

    I used to love VSCO, it definitely created the atmosphere of art that Instagram was originally intended for. Recently though it's started to change, starting with the 'Trending' category on the home page being taken down, and the lack of support and new features for Android users that has always been an issue. Now they are locking historically free tools behind paywalls to get people to subscribe. Honestly I don't even know how much longer I will stay on the app, it's getting so frustrating.
  • new layout is HORRIBLE Nov 26, 2020

    By ggesoff
    Not sure how new this layout is, if my app just now updated an old update or if this is brand new, but the new layout of the app is HORRIBLE. It is in no way, shape, or form user-friendly. I tend to dump a bunch of pictures into VSCO and then edit them, saving as I go. Now I have to scroll through my camera roll and I can only select ONE PHOTO at a time, I have to edit it right then and there, there’s no option to upload a bunch of pictures and then edit them later, and if I wanted to do that I would have to individually select each picture and “save to drafts” for every single one, scrolling back through my camera roll each time and THEN I can go to the SEPARATE “Drafts” tab to edit it. One of the worst parts of this whole feature is that if I select a picture and edit it right there in the “Studio - Camera Roll” tab, there is no way to save it to my camera roll AND save it to my drafts. So if I want to save it, I have to individually add it to my drafts, then change tabs, and edit/save it from there. If I want to edit it then save it from the Camera Roll tab, I have no way to go back and edit it later because it doesn’t go into my drafts, where it would normally be stored. I cannot emphasize enough, this update is HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE! I am so disappointed and know that VSCO can do much better — it’s as if no one thought these changes through. Very disappointed. Please go back to the old setup.

    Legacy features NOW PAYWALLED! I purchased all of the filter packs (when that was still an option). VSCO has plenty of my $$$ already. Removing *very* basic options that are standard across most free editors is a slap in the face to all longtime users, particularly those who supported the app before the sub model was implimented. It's hateful and greedy. Period.

    By Jonathan Lam
    Used and loved this app for years. Recommended it to every person I knew who was interested in photo editing on mobile. However, the new paywall removing access to popular filter presets and basic editing tools like grain and tone makes this uncompetitive as a free photo editing apps now. It's really disappointing to see - Lightroom has become a better alternative.
  • Jun 7, 2022

    By Grace Kelly
    I've used this app for YEARS and it's so disappointing to see how even basic functions are now being locked behind a pay wall. I can understand new features being available only to premium members but things like grain and clarity have recently been locked out, and photos that I've edited before can no longer be edited and saved without removing those. I could understand if it had been like this from the beginning but that's not the case here.

    By Anastasha Earl
    I've used the free version of VSCO for a few years now because it was the best option for photo editing; I didn't mind the ads or that certain features were locked because the interface was so user friendly. Now, however, there are suddenly paywalls on tons of features and presets that used to be free. Thing is, I wouldn't even mind paying if it was like this from the beginning. At this point, I'm just going to uninstall and move to another app; heck, I'll just edit in Instagram instead.
  • VSCO journals/ new update Feb 3, 2021

    By glittttttterbom
    This used to be my favorite social media app because it has never been related to likes or the amount of followers you have. I have been using VSCO for over 6 years now and recently the quality of the app has GREATLY depleted. I am constantly having issues with cropping my photos. I woke up this morning to see my app had updated and that all my Journals were removed. I looked up online and found that VSCO has gotten rid of the journal section for good starting today. I have 6 years of photo journals on this app, that are now all deleted. They creators said this change happened because journals are not creative and they want to keep this a creative space. Well I have been using journals to group photos together like an online scrapbook. Along with that I am an artist and use them to keep track of my progress, so remind me why that isn’t creative enough for you? I am so upset by the removal of journals and all my hard work on keeping my journals up to date with good captions is now gone. The least they could have done was give a warning about this so I could have saved them before they got completely removed. And worst of all I tried contacting the VSCO team to see if there is a way to recover my journals and they have zero information on their website on how to get in touch. Not even an email.

  • Love this app, literally more than any other app Dec 26, 2020

    By littlegrumpytrout
    I have been using this app since 2013 and it only gets better. There have been features over the past years that I’ve had to get used to but overall I love it. I use it everyday. I think the idea behind this app is absolutely perfect. This app has given me the courage to explore my own creativity and open up to sharing it. I don’t worry about how many people notice my photos and I love that comments and likes are not a feature on this app. Every feature from the wide variety of presets, DSCO (ability to make your own gifs), taking videos AND being able to edit them and participating in challenges BRINGS ME JOY AND HAPPINESS! I highly suggest joining the VSCO membership, it’s worth every penny! Thank you so much to the creators and VSCO team for creating and continuing to update and evolve the VSCO app. It’s made an impact on my life so THANK YOU!

  • Verification Troubles Jan 4, 2021

    By chan !!
    It’s an amazing editing app that allows for everyone to make their own custom adjustments and even gives them a good selection of pre- made filters that allows the user to have a good glimpse of what the app can do. The whole feed and layout is similar like to Instagram but still has that unique feature and qualities that makes it different than the- said app. Although some troubles in trying to claim the account of others and for yourself, is quite hard as you cannot verify your account unless the email that you put in, is correct. The problem with this issue, is that many users change emails and even get new phones (completely) and loose access to their old email for them to actually verify the account. Without adding the feature for them to change their email or even add their new email/ phone number, they can’t verify their account and edit their account (such as account name, edit the bio, links, etc). If VSCO adds the feature of letting the users claim their account in different ways, then it’s better for them, altogether.
  • It’s cool May 18, 2020

    By helloooooiooo76544788
    I really enjoy vsco, it’s a fun app I know many people who wish there were comments and likes things that normal social media apps have but I don’t mind, it has good filters but I wish there were more things for free. Don’t get me wrong this app has a lot of free things, but personally I’d love to have the filters the membership offers, but I don’t feel like paying money for it since I don’t use it to often. Just a suggestion. I ,however, do really enjoy the free Dsco feature I love taking short clips and I like how that’s free, it’s also a shame that I think you have to be a part of the membership to post videos. But unlike other apps this app has a lot more than just filters and has things like exposure and contrast to match what you think looks best on the picture there’s a large variety of things you can use to edit your picture, and I have to say they look amazing, I also like how you can repost it and favorite it, it’s different and I like how you can see the posts you have respirated, I also love the discover feature so you can see cool images that other people have posted I defiantly use the studio a lot to edit my apps, and I personally don’t own any social media but it’s cool that it can save to your camera roll and you can post it in other social media apps. Overall, it’s a great app and I would recommend it to a friend (I have actually)

    Great app, but it is progressively adding "premium" features each update and it's simply not worth paying money to edit an image. There are already many filters and such that were already premium. I don't necessarily think more needed to be added. To each their own, though. Pay at your own expense if you wish.
  • Hate update from a while ago Jul 2, 2019

    By Nice and the best
    I loved vsco but I hate the storing now because it all goes to my camera roll but that just takes up more storage I like to keep my pictures I take on vsco on vsco and the only way I can keep them if I delete it from my camera roll is if I post it but I don’t post every picture I take I like to just mess around with some of mine that I don’t want everyone to see. Please fix this so many people have complained about it and still it hasn’t been fixed I about want to use a new app but. I think you guys should also add the feature to make our vsco account private. Another thing that irritates me is that if I delete my vsco or something happens or say I got a new phone when I download vsco again all my old photos will be gone and yes I know I can save them to my camera roll to back them up but I hate having my vsco pictures on my camera roll I got vsco so my friends could see my fun pictures that I edit I don’t want to have to save my vsco pictures to my camera roll or another app it’s just better to have them on there. Please fix this it’s getting a little annoying and infuriating. I would prefer to not have to switch to another editing app when you guys can just switch it back to the original version you had it.

    Well. The filters are great. The interface is nice and streamlined. I've really enjoyed it for the 2 weeks I've been using it. And yet. And yet. How can a photo app fail to detect newly taken photos unless I RESTART my phone? It makes absolutely no sense and is a massive inconvenience. It's beyond a bug, it's an issue that completely sinks this app for me and would give me pause about putting money into it again.

    Love using VSCO, very user friendly and produces high quality images. However, with their last update, they made certain editing tools that I use for nearly ever image locked and only for premium users. These tools have always been free to use the past 8 years I've had the app. I don't see why this was necessary and am very unhappy with the change.
  • Suggestion for paid members Jun 19, 2020

    By Perripenguin
    I LOVE the app and I absolutely love the entire platform, however as a paid member I would like the ability to sign into my account online on my laptop and edit photos from there. I feel like paid members would be able to get even more from the platform as this would allow members to see colors and filters more clearly and allow members to make even better/smarter editing decisions. I went to do this one time because when I printed out the photo after I edited it, and it didn’t turn out the way I thought it would but yet it looked great on my phone app. I’ve used the app less because of this only because I don’t feel like I’m getting a true editing experience. It only makes sense to me, as you can access VSCO on a computer already and can log in and even browse around! You’d think I could at least edit the photos I’ve uploaded under my profile before I post them on the VSCO feed. I will more than likely cancel my subscription and find another app that will allow me to make edits on my laptop as well. Giving it 3 stars for now until VSCO gives paid members a little more freedom outside of the app itself.
  • Not worth paying for May 16, 2022

    By KevinIsaiah
    I have used and enjoyed VSCO for years, but the newest update made a lot of manual adjustment filters (clarity, grain, etc.) locked for free users. Frankly, VSCO was a convenience app for me - I am not paying the equivalent of a streaming service every month just to have editing options on my phone that I can easily do for free on my computer. I have no interest in using VSCO as a social media platform, and I am disappointed they’ve removed so many manual adjustment options from users without a paid subscription. It is one thing to charge for preset filters and automated adjustments, but not manual ones. Further, I don’t support the subscription model - I dropped photoshop when Adobe decided you couldn’t own the software outright anymore, and I’m not going to support the subscription model for a phone app with far fewer features. If you’re willing to use the subscription feature then I’m sure you’ll enjoy VSCO, but I’m sick and tired of never ending monthly payments just because tech companies are trying to end outright ownership. I’d even be willing to pay a one-time payment option for premium (as in, pay a high flat rate once and always have access - NOT an annual renewing subscription), but I won’t support ongoing fees to manually edit my own photos. I’ll just use my computer. Disappointing to lose VSCO like this, but at least I’ll free up more space in my phone!

    I used to love VSCO, it definitely created the atmosphere of art that Instagram was originally intended for. Recently though it's started to change, starting with the 'Trending' category on the home page being taken down, and the lack of support and new features for Android users that has always been an issue. Now they are locking historically free tools behind paywalls to get people to subscribe. Honestly I don't even know how much longer I will stay on the app, it's getting so frustrating.
  • Jun 3, 2022

    By Jonathan Lam
    Used and loved this app for years. Recommended it to every person I knew who was interested in photo editing on mobile. However, the new paywall removing access to popular filter presets and basic editing tools like grain and tone makes this uncompetitive as a free photo editing apps now. It's really disappointing to see - Lightroom has become a better alternative.
  • It’s Going Downhill- Two Suggestions Jun 2, 2021

    By Calvin.york99
    The thing that is currently getting the most on my nerves though is that when I finish editing and choose whether or not to save or to post, the phone automatically scrolls back to the saved photo. This is so frustrating when I’m editing photos that are farther back or even relatively close and my place in my camera roll is not saved. I don’t want to scroll all the way back, edit another photo and then do the process again. It’s tedious and pointless. I guess this is in place, so we can see where the edited photo lands? But, that’s not helpful. I think that a button at the top of the screen that says “jump to most recent photos” or something would be more useful. Loosing my spot constantly is SO frustrating. I love VSCO, and I will stick around because I love and am used to the editing software they have. However, I feel like with each new update, VSCO is making it harder to stay. They got rid of the studio, which was very handy. I liked having the photos I was editing in one place. When editing my photos, I don’t want my whole camera roll there with all my screenshots too. I want to choose what’s in the studio. I really want studio back. I use VSCO on my iPhone 11, and I would love to be contacted
  • y’all fell off Jun 24, 2022

    By @rockwisdom
    I’m a photographer and the app used to be me go-to editing app. VSCO took all the tools and filters I use for my edits and made them where I can only access them if I purchase a subscription. That was kinda trash because free version of the app already barely had any features. Now the app is pretty much a waste of space without a subscription. I’m not gonna lie y’all got me. I submitted and went ahead and bought in because I’ve been using VSCO for 2 years. Now this new “Studio” update is trash because I used to be able simply just copy my edits from certain drafts and paste them on to a bulk of photos. Now, I have to make those bulk of photos into drafts, edit them and then save them into my camera roll which makes the editing process more difficult and creates hella unnecessary duplicates of pictures that i have to go back and delete. My thing is, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it and y’all are doing TOO much. Please stop and fix this once great app. I don’t even leave reviews but the recent updates of this app doesn’t “appeal to a serious creative” like me and have ruined a once great editing app. I can’t even switch apps because i’ve financially dedicated a year to this BS😐. Please don’t leave a generic message under my review.

    Loved this app before! Have to change my opinion about this app from 5 stars to 2. Have been using vsco since 2016, always thought that that's the best app, but what happened to it? Seriously, tried to edit one photo today for freaking 4 times, just using 2 simple tools, and couldn't save because of the highlighted blue line saying that I should try new options/free trial and etc. and that highlighted line was on SAVE button, it doesn't saved my edited photo, 4 freaking times! So disappointed((
  • Disappointed Nov 29, 2020

    By Melody Joy Dawn
    I’ve really enjoyed using VSCO through the past few years, but recently it’s really been frustrating. With its most recent update, if you don’t have premium you can’t post DSCOs like we used to be able to. And i haven’t been able to post journals since this past summer (2020). The journals just sit in my journals section and the cover photo is blank and they refuse to actually post. As of this past day, i’m not able to post or even edit any photo without the app completely freezing up and not responding to touch. i’ve opened and closed the app as well as deleted and redownloaded the app to try and fix these bugs but it has not helped at all. Please come up with a solution. Also with the recent update, whenever i want to save a photo to camera roll from my drafts, it takes me to the camera roll section instead of just letting me stay in drafts. then when i want to go back to drafts, i have to scroll every single time back down to where i left off with editing. this makes batch editing really frustrating as well. i have expressed to my friends how upsetting this new update is, and they’ve agreed with me. Please revert back some of these changes.

    been using the app for several years now and i was really surprised to see some of the basic features being put into the membership program and requiring pay... some of the basic features included tone and clarity which can be easily used on another app. i get that apps are still trying to make money, but i don't believe that suddenly requiring payment for features that have been free on an app for years is the way to go.
  • Jun 16, 2022

    By Faith Amoussou
    This used to be my favorite photo editing app but they are taking away features that used to be free in order to force user's hands into paying for a premium subscription. It's really disheartening to see how greedy this app has gotten. Will be looking for a new photo editing app from this day forward. Shame on y'all! You really think during a recession ppl have extra money to spend on features that were free up until now? Features I used that were once free : adjusting tone, grain, etc. Boo! 🍅
  • new layout is HORRIBLE Nov 26, 2020

    By ggesoff
    Not sure how new this layout is, if my app just now updated an old update or if this is brand new, but the new layout of the app is HORRIBLE. It is in no way, shape, or form user-friendly. I tend to dump a bunch of pictures into VSCO and then edit them, saving as I go. Now I have to scroll through my camera roll and I can only select ONE PHOTO at a time, I have to edit it right then and there, there’s no option to upload a bunch of pictures and then edit them later, and if I wanted to do that I would have to individually select each picture and “save to drafts” for every single one, scrolling back through my camera roll each time and THEN I can go to the SEPARATE “Drafts” tab to edit it. One of the worst parts of this whole feature is that if I select a picture and edit it right there in the “Studio - Camera Roll” tab, there is no way to save it to my camera roll AND save it to my drafts. So if I want to save it, I have to individually add it to my drafts, then change tabs, and edit/save it from there. If I want to edit it then save it from the Camera Roll tab, I have no way to go back and edit it later because it doesn’t go into my drafts, where it would normally be stored. I cannot emphasize enough, this update is HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE! I am so disappointed and know that VSCO can do much better — it’s as if no one thought these changes through. Very disappointed. Please go back to the old setup.

    By Chris Galegar
    Legacy features NOW PAYWALLED! I purchased all of the filter packs (when that was still an option). VSCO has plenty of my $$$ already. Removing *very* basic options that are standard across most free editors is a slap in the face to all longtime users, particularly those who supported the app before the sub model was implimented. It's hateful and greedy. Period.
  • Jun 7, 2022

    By Grace Kelly
    I've used this app for YEARS and it's so disappointing to see how even basic functions are now being locked behind a pay wall. I can understand new features being available only to premium members but things like grain and clarity have recently been locked out, and photos that I've edited before can no longer be edited and saved without removing those. I could understand if it had been like this from the beginning but that's not the case here.
  • May 17, 2022

    By Anastasha Earl
    I've used the free version of VSCO for a few years now because it was the best option for photo editing; I didn't mind the ads or that certain features were locked because the interface was so user friendly. Now, however, there are suddenly paywalls on tons of features and presets that used to be free. Thing is, I wouldn't even mind paying if it was like this from the beginning. At this point, I'm just going to uninstall and move to another app; heck, I'll just edit in Instagram instead.
  • VSCO journals/ new update Feb 3, 2021

    By glittttttterbom
    This used to be my favorite social media app because it has never been related to likes or the amount of followers you have. I have been using VSCO for over 6 years now and recently the quality of the app has GREATLY depleted. I am constantly having issues with cropping my photos. I woke up this morning to see my app had updated and that all my Journals were removed. I looked up online and found that VSCO has gotten rid of the journal section for good starting today. I have 6 years of photo journals on this app, that are now all deleted. They creators said this change happened because journals are not creative and they want to keep this a creative space. Well I have been using journals to group photos together like an online scrapbook. Along with that I am an artist and use them to keep track of my progress, so remind me why that isn’t creative enough for you? I am so upset by the removal of journals and all my hard work on keeping my journals up to date with good captions is now gone. The least they could have done was give a warning about this so I could have saved them before they got completely removed. And worst of all I tried contacting the VSCO team to see if there is a way to recover my journals and they have zero information on their website on how to get in touch. Not even an email.
  • Bad update Jan 2, 2021

    By Picture Press
    Like many others that have written recent reviews, I have been a loyal VSCO user for years now and have the paid membership. I used to love this app, but the new update is super confusing. I liked uploading a bunch of my favorite photos into the studio and then batch editing. It used to be so easy, but now it’s very convoluted and hard to copy paste edits across photos and make sure they are all consistent before saving a copy to my camera roll. Please revert and listen to your user base. :( Update: maybe I am missing something but I HATE that it now asks me to “modify photo?” and then saves over the raw photo in my camera roll with the applied edits. I like keeping my raw photos separate from edited because as editing styles change I know I always have the original preserved for use at a later date. In addition, there appears to be a weird bug where an edited photo looks different in the studio then when you actually open it in edit mode. The last version of VSCO was perfect; please please please revert. I’ve had to switch to the Lightroom app because I hate this update so much. I assume VSCO is trying to save money because server space for everyone’s photos and edits was too costly. I would rather pay more for the old app than deal with this new update. Please fix, how many bad reviews will it take?

    By Katelynn Goins
    Very sad. I've been using vsco for nearly a decade as my go to for picture editing, but as it goes, all good things must come to an end. The app has only gotten more popular over the years and that has sparked an oppurtunity for them to make more money, of course. So now, in order to use some of the basic editing features, you have to upgrade and pay. I'm all for a business making money, but after a decade of the same features, they chose the wrong things to make some extra cash off of.

    i've been using vsco for YEARS, and i’ve always loved it; would have rated it 5 stars before-- however, the new update makes so many previously-free features only available for premium, and it's utterly ridiculous. why lock things that have been usable for so long? now it has no more free editing features than my phone's default photo editor. really unhappy with this change.
