Misleading developer do not buy 1/5
Developer in free app promises 50 plus tutorials 200 plus tools if you upgrade to pro. I figured i would try one month at 6.99. After purchasing and opening the same free app i counted 13 tutorials under the tutorial only. If your going to charge 7 dollars a month for a pro version it should install a seperate pro version. Also dont promise 50+ tutorials and then include 13. I even emailed the company support with no response. Im awaiting a refund. Shame as the app has potential
So easy to us. Love it!
Amazing app, never thought of subscribing to one but I’m considering it for this. It’s so easy to use and it does a lot of what I need it to do on the go.
Why is this so hard 1/5
I loved the old version, so much easier to use. This new App takes way more time and is much more confusing! I’m annoyed that I even paid for it
Both Photofox and Enlight have been deleted from my iPhone and iPad. Let me know when you guys stop playing your shell game with the features, add a proper straighten tool, restore granular adjustments (remember L-R, Up-Down? That was well done. The dumb slider? Umm, no!), and correct all the other clueless things you did to destroy the Enlight experience so many people loved. I’m happy to take the $40 hit knowing I won’t be subjecting myself repeatedly to your “what happens if we put this... here?” approach to app design and that you won’t get any more of my $$.
Otherwise, you’re doing a great job! 🤣
Do you guys constantly change and move things around because you have nothing better to do or because you’re sadists? Let’s waste everyone’s time by making them find the new hiding place of their favorite tool... if it hasn’t been removed!
New Project button?? Seriously??? Now we have to tap that first to get to our photos? 🤬 Wow, 1 step forward, 10 steps back. I’m disliking Lietricks almost as much as I do Adobe.
OTOH, duplicating a layer was too easy before so thanks for making that far more difficult, or nearly impossible if a series of edits have been made and you want to experiment in a different direction. Instead, you have to create a new layer with the original photo, then make all the same edits again (hopefully), THEN you can take it in another direction. Much better workflow!
And good thing you removed the B&W options. They have no place in photography. Besides, removing all Saturation does the same thing without taking up space with color filters. Kinda like Transform being the same as Straighten.
I hadn’t updated Photofaux for quite a while. Now I remember why.
There are reasons I still keep and regularly use Enlight. Not just because of the beautiful “Upgrade” button I often tap accidentally. There’s also the fact that it was made before these folks started doing mushrooms.
Previously on WTAF:
You guys should consider changing the name of the the Projects tab to “Oops, something’s gone wrong here.” Because that’s what popped up for over 100 of my projects. So I deleted the thumbnails because, 1) turns out that’s all they were, thumbnail reminders of projects that no longer exist, and 2) why bother anymore.
I loved the $4 app (before the upgrade button anyway).
So glad the $40 I spent is being put to good use for things like valentine stickers instead of unnecessary things like missing tools.
The more I use this app, the more I wish I’d never paid the $40 it cost at the time (despite what they said, the 3-month trial didn’t work for me - the premium features were still locked).
The latest frustration is the Reshape function. They have icons depicting wireframes or guides, and you would think that there would be some kind of guide or frame or level to keep the reshaping straight. Nope!! Once again, you’re on your own if you want anything straight in this app.
But thanks anyway to the developers for instilling in me that I will NEVER pay anywhere near $40 for an iOS app ever again. A subscription, perhaps? Fugetaboutit!! I don’t rent software.
In response to the developer’s comment about the stock photos tab (“It will only open on the Search tab the first time you open it...”), allow me to finish the sentence accurately: “... during that session.” Open the app the next day and the default is still the Search tab. You guys are like Nuance - 90% awesome, 10% WT_??
And STILL no straighten tool.... Layer transform does not cut it - iOS doesn’t have the precision to rotate with fingers only, and there are no guides to indicate whether an image is straight. The original Enlight has a wonderful straighten tool, but to leave a $40 app to use a BASIC tool in another app is ridiculous. Not to mention image degradation each time it’s recompressed (maybe not so much with TIFs).
With all the advanced features you guys have built into the app, how does a core image utility get left out?! It irritates me every time I need to straighten a photo.
Why would you make Search the new default when selecting photos? Don't most people want to work on the photos they themselves take? How about making it an option in settings. I personally would rarely, if ever, use that and it's getting irritating to have to switch back to my photos each time.
You advertise 3 mo free Pro trial for Enlight 1 users, yet why are some features still crippled? B&W > Cinema, for example. Other Pro features that I've used so far work fine.
If you're wanting us to lay down the substantial price increase from v1, we should be able to try all of it. I don't want to use 90% of it, spend the money, then find out the other 10% is useless.
Kind of disappointed 4/5
I purchased this app since it first came out. I used it all of the time. I don’t do anything special. Add words, make a collage. With this new update I have to figure everything out again and some of the things I liked and used are gone. Replacing them are constant pop ups to subscribe. I know there are people that really use all of the features, but I just want something to edit a photo. I don’t want to pay even more money every month to use an app I already paid for once. This isn’t the only app that’s doing this, I’ve had to delete apps asking for a monthly fee to use them. THAT’S what is disappointing.
SO GOOOOODDD 5/5
By Beckah Bee
Best Photo editing app ever!!!
Love it!! Just a quick question 5/5
I bought this app and subscribed to monthly just to try it out, but I really wanted to do the one time purchase eventually... Can you still make that an option? I love it! I bought Enlight when it came out, but now I can’t switch to purchase Photofox for a one time only. Please please add it back to the options list! 🙏🏻
Best photo editing app by far 5/5
By Zelda Yes!!!😝😝😝
Highly impressed with the capabilities. Its like the developers know the needs of a photographer and artist. Im not a fan of subscriptions but this app is worth it!
I just wanna say. That this app is easy to use. I enjoy taking pictures and enjoy tweaking the ones that I want. But it was a quick learn and would recommend it and have many times. And I don’t even have the pro version!!!
Very simple and easy to use app, with tons of cool features and effects. Everyone should have this app!
Great app! 5/5
By Lumyer puzzled
Great App and layers are very versatile. Thanks for keeping it available. I’ll upgrade once I learn the basics. Glad enough is offered for free, this fact has had me Perdue the company’s other apps. I love companies that do not try and take advantage of ppls walkets and offer great content. Various platforms.
Best effects for photos 5/5
By Legend Airy
Simply the best
Photofox user 5466932577 5/5
A little confusing at first, but lots of fun!
So stupid 1/5
So you guys want to stop supporting Enlight because it’s free and a one time purchase. Then come out with this sorry app to have people purchase a subscription. Good going
Kind of mad. The app was having problems while i was trying to draw up an image. I deleted it to see if it was a bug, and when it redownloaded, it deleted every drawing i created, and it has no access to getting those images back.
Enlight was better than this 3/5
While this version has some nice bells and whistle’s like the option to include light affects, that’s really the only difference that I can see other than you removed a lot of things I use daily & for $70, I expected everything from Enlight to be in this program plus extras. The collage and border option are gone, which I use the collage function a lot & don’t want to have to use another program in order to make a collage. Not only that unless I just can’t find it, there is no option for writing text let alone making Memes which was what made Enlight so cool was that it was so easy to quickly make a meme out of something. If this program only cost $5 dollars I wouldn’t complain about the missing features but I paid a lot & since you are forcing us to use this version and not the other one, which is way better in my opinion, it’s very upsetting to me. I do a ton of graphic design and quite frankly the price point on this was way out of my budget and it was actually gifted to me since I couldn’t afford it with being disabled, and I feel like you’re over charging for something and taking away a lot of features which made the app great in the first place. Now if there is a section for making collages and for borders and for text and memes and all of that and I am just not seeing it, then please by all means let me know where it’s at, but I have gone through this app up & down & I’ve yet to find any. For $70 this should have every single thing that Enlight had PLUS a ridiculous amount of new things, not just the option to use some different filters like glitch and add in some light effects. I truly hope that you are working on integrating all the other features that you for some reason got rid of. Because this app was not cheap. And considering I had already purchased two of your other apps, I could not take advantage of the bundle, so you have a ton of my money & I am lacking in the services that I need.... not a happy graphic artist right now.
What an absolutely incredible app 5/5
This is an absolutely incredible app. Best photoshop app ever. With the free version, you get a TON of amazing stuff and it is SO much fun! I recently decided to upgrade to the full version and I am extremely impressed. This app really is the best photoshop one out there! And if you upgrade to the full version, you won’t be sorry! It’s so good!!
Absolute garbage in comparison to OG Enlight 1/5
Free version is restricted to three layers. At 69.99, you might as well just save your money and get a better photo app for cheaper in the App Store or spend it on a PC Editor. There are also quite a few features missing from the original app. It’s disgusting that they’ve done this and I will not be supporting this developer anymore once Enlight is gone.
It’s a shame because I enjoyed using it, but there are plenty of other cheaper/one time photo editor options out there I can use instead. Sad to see the app go down this route. 😔
Amazing app 5/5
I’m enjoying this app. Enhancing my photos and making everything look better.
Inferior to original Enlight 2/5
This app is missing the very features I loved most about the original Enlight: painting filters, and a wide variety of wonderful filter presets that one could easily layer and adjust.
The new app seems geared more toward pro users, which is fine. But it is missing the exact features I enjoyed so much about Enlight. I wouldn’t mind switching to a subscription based payment model for the old app. But I find no point in using Photofox.
Too complex, too expensive 3/5
I'm extremely sad that Enlight is going away. Photofox is just too complex whereas Enlight is powerful but simpler to use. And most importantly, Photofox is way too expensive. Unfortunately, I'll be deleting it.
Can you add hex codes, or at least the ability to save palettes. It’s kinda annoying having to find the exact color again when I exit out of the tool completely.
Love it 5/5
Discovered this app and it’s great. Easy to use and powerful. (At least for casual editing) I haven’t found another one like it. Love there other apps too.
I really enjoy using this app! I do have some problems with it.. sometimes it freezes on me and I have to get out of the app completely and it gets rid of my progress. I also don’t like how you have to pay for better options. It’s really dumb but I really like this app!!!! I gave it three stars because it has its ups⬆️ and it has its downs⬇️
First project! 5/5
By Pastor Lori
I just completed my first project and I really enjoyed this program! I’ve had a lot of fun and I look forward to my next one!
Luv it!!! 5/5
Prior to paying, you can still play around with it a bit which is totally awesome!
Paid, crashed 3 times already 1/5
First time using it,
crashing repeatedly when I add a filter to a layer, where’s my refund?
Phil banana 5/5
Yes thank you
Do not like have Not Used
Please refund money
Try it!! 5/5
This is the best thing yet!! All you need to do is to stop reading this and download it!! Once you’re done you have made a good choice so now start editing!!
99 ./. AWSOME 5/5
By 99 ./. awsome
This is very useful and I do enjoy it very much.The only thing that annoys me is the part were you have to get pro for all of it and that drives me nuts but I still enjoy it very much.OH and the erase part were you can erase part of the picture is kind of annoying caus you can’t aim very well but like I said the app is AWSOME I’m out peace
Although it could have some more free filter this app is just great, I highly recommend this app for anyone that’s into photo.
By funny facer
Its really easy to use and the fact that theres already pictures makes it a relief so you can practice editing pictures without actually having to use your phone to take the pictures overall 10/10
By FV is greedy
Done so much for our business!
Not a Good Replacement for Original Enlight 1/5
Love the original Enlight app, it's been my go-to app for years for social media content and daily photo journaling. Was extremely disappointed to see that they're doing away with it in favor of Photofox which appears to be a very powerful photo editor, but requires a costly subscription for full features, is much more complicated (& less intuitive) than Enlight and much more time consuming to do anything. It also does not appear to include all of the features (or maybe they've just buried them so deeply I can't find them; e.g. Finalize>Instafit is super useful for social media formatting. Same thing can be done in Photofox sort of with 5x more steps). Enlight is reasonably simple yet has a lot of easily accessed capabilities whereas Photofox is not. I have a Photoshop subscription thru my desktop work but chose to use the original Enlight on mobile because it's easier. I wish they'd continue to support it as a non-subscription, lighter weight app. If I want complicated, I'll just use the Photoshop subscription that I already have. This may be a 5-star app if you're looking for power and complexity, but it is by no means a 5-star replacement for the original Enlight.
I wish to downgrade. Elements aren’t the same. 4/5
I’ve had this app for almost a year now and it’s awesome and useful. I use the elements a ton but the new update with it on the top right corner now is bugging with the blending.
Example, if you used to add more than one element while you use Blending, then you wouldn’t be able to add more elements anymore. I used to use that freely and now I can’t make the same kind of edits I used to do, anymore.
It was honestly better how it used to be. But the typing update is actually pretty useful, at least to me it’s helpful. Anyways, I wish to downgrade.
Amazing app 5/5
It’s amazing app & very simple
Literally awesome 5/5
I just needed an app to edit this cover art for my friend and this app blew my mind. It did what I needed and much more. It’s great
Photo Fox is amazing 5/5
Photo fox helps me do gfx and it is way easier to do it then on a computer
Very professional 5/5
By pleese help
Very professional good job enlight
I bought Enlight now I’m being told it will no longer be supported shortly and that I should buy this. Nah, I’ll pass and will never buy anything from you.
How fo i know if i used pro edition by mistake? 4/5
This is a good editing & modifying app, but how do i know that i am using pro edition?, and if i am using it by mistake,can i cancel it
I hope you don’t find a way to delete my original Enlight app off my iPad. It is so much better.
Why I gave it 1 star 1/5
I did NOT like this app it was horrible! IT NEEDS MANY IMPROVEMENTS I JUST HATE IT!
It needs way better quality, ғɪx ɴᴏᴡ!!! The eraser is just the thing that confusion every body I get triggered! Just make it better quality that’s all I ask.
It works 5/5
It’s not a computer but what can you expect from an app. Works like it should.
Not easy to use 1/5
Too difficult for an amateur to navigate.
This app🤪🤤 5/5
By get this app plzzzz
This is is really nice for no editors like me. It shows me how to do things and I just love it.
