Version 2.8
Review by Bobbyshermanphotography

Best collection of filters - This is by far the best collection of photography effects and filters out there. I also have Camerabag, Snapseed and Analog, but this one features more effects than these apps together. I see no reason to buy the basic version, when you can get pro for this price. Don't expect Lightroom features in FX Photo Studio, but you get just the right tools for hours of photo fun with effects and filters. I've tried camerabag and fx photo studio trials before the download and even though camerabag has some descent features, you can't beat the price and tools of this one. Speaking about effects, obviously not 100% of them are for everyday usage, but you get over 200 of those plus a possibility to mix them and create presets, so even 10-20 filters are more than enough to make pictures look awesome. I also support devs actions in bringing more editing tools, like sharpening, levels, and so on. There were almost none at the beginning, but now even the adjust menu is well worth over $10. So definitely give this app a try if you want to add some new flavors to your photography.

Review by not_for_me

Not "PRO"! - This a toy photo editing app, not a "PRO" app and I for one am getting a bit tired of that term getting used for marketing in such baltantly misleading ways and feel that developers that do it should be called out for it. A "Pro" photo app should at least be capable of resizing the image with control over pixel dimensions along with dpi (i.e. 8x10 inches or the equivelent pixel dimensions at 300dpi or 72dpi, etc.), not just a simple crop. A "Pro" photo editing app needs to have layers support - even if the number of layers is limited, at least SOME layers! A "Pro" photo editing app would allow for much more control of the color and contrast of the image and have sharpening, blurring and doging/burning tools, not just a lame sharpening slider that destroys the image. This app is for kids that want to post images to social networks not for image makers interested in "Pro" functionality! Just a waste of money for me - I'm deleting the app and would love a refund. The name "Photo Studio Pro" is misleading and MacPhun should be ashamed for using it for this very basic effects app.

Special - This app for all its simplicity can and does make your images unique. Try layering two or three of these filters. Whatever image you are working with, this app is not only fun, it seriously does a great job. For my work it is “must have” for tinkering and producing appealingly artistic images.

EXCELLENT — is FX PHOTO STUDIO PRO - I want to give great accoladee to FX Photo Studio Pro for one of the BEST apps I have ever used. It might take you a time to get to know and learn to use all the wonderful, plentiful and very superior aspects of this app…but the time will be well spent. You will be rewarded by the finest results you would want for your project. I would definitely recommend this to my artist friends and/or anyone wanting a very superior product in the photo and/or painting editors.

Review by SafeArmsReview

Its good but… no way to add text - I bought this because I thought it was the pro version of the Photo Editor Axiem System program that I use on my tablet. With the tablet version it has the same effects and such, however you can add text. With this version, which I paid more money for, does not have the add text feature. I’m a little bummed about it. Maybe I’m missing something but if the version that has ads playing can add text, why can’t the Pro version (which does not have ads)?

Review by The app reviewer man

DO NOT BUY. DO NOT LISTEN TO 5 STAR REVIEWS. - I bought this app with an open mind thinking that it could be used to edit photos. Obviously for $8 it isn’t going to be photoshop but I still expected a few good functions from it. The first time I opened up this app it froze when i tried to adjust even the most simple of effects like saturation and brightness. I tried about 100 times after that thinking it was my computer but every single time resulted in a loading screen that eventually crashed the app. THIS APP IS MUCH WORSE THAT EDITING IN IPHOTO. I contacted customer support and they gave me a download to studio pro CK which also crashed then they told me I could not get a refund and it was a problem that their team hasn’t been able to fix. Complete waste of money. I would have rather burned my money in a bonfire than using it to buy this app. DO NOT LISTEN TO THE OTHER GOOD REVIEWS. EVEN IF THIS APP DIDN’T CRASH ITS NOT WORTH THE MONEY. If you are even thinking about buying this app, go donate your $8 to a homeless shelter where it can actually be put to good use and instead use another software to edit photos.
