            Real photoshop pocket edition!. I don't get how unpopular this app is. It's just amazing, now this is true "photoshop" for my iPad. I edit all "serious" photos in
            here. Now I only need photoshop when I want to use its huge screen!
            For masking and layers this is the best of the bes. For right now, 2015, this is as good as it gets, but it could be improved. I've never tried exporting it, but it will let you
            export to Photoshop files. I would like an eyedropper tool, and to be able
            I don't need Photoshop on my PC anymore!. Yep this app is so great that I don't use photoshop unless I need 16MP or above multi layers photo edit. It is great for

            thumbs up.
            Fantastic App. I have 50 photo editing Apps, and Leonardo is now on my photo app Mt. Rushmore along with Snapseed, Camera and Enlight. It has
            great layers features and an intuitive user interface given the powerful
            A well done app. Everybody who's into post processing should have this in the toolbox.
            Smart brush. Best "Photoshop" app. Ex-PhotoForge user? Get this. Want Photoshop on iPhone? Get this. Need a masking tool? Get this.With the
            smart brush, selection got as good as it gets. Only way for it to get bet
            Awesome app. Love this app. It's like having Photoshop on your phone. Great value for the price. I'm using it every day now. This just might be
            the only image editing app you need on your device.
            Fantastic editing app. Best customer service I have ever experienced with any app. Hands down there is no iOS app like this one, from interface design
            to functionality and ease of use.
            LIKE SUPERIMPOSE WITH LAYERS! BUT EYEDROPPER TOOL . I love it! It gets the job done when you cannot edit on your computer. I use this app everyday, and I would recommend it to many
            editors out there.And love the latest update fixes.
            The dr.. "Very interesting possibilities,makes the time fly by. If you like to create get this app. Best buy."
            Best image app. I've been downloading free image apps since forever. Never wanted a paid one because I use my paid OS X apps for those occasions.
            One reason I'd keep downloading them is because none were hitting th
            Phenomenal!. I don't write a lot of reviews, but this app is fantastic! Especially if you are a Photoshop user; you'll love it! So many tools
            that other apps lack!
            Under the radar. Why is this app so relatively unknown?It is a dream app for photoshop users.
            For masking and layers this is the best of the bes. For right now, 2015, this is as good as it gets, but it could be improved. I've never tried exporting it, but it will let you

            Great app very useful️. Just getting started. So far it's been a pleasure to work with I'm 62 retired and I love playing working with my photos️
            You're Going To Love This App!. This is an Awesome App! Sooooo much easier than Photoshop. Anyone can easily learn to use it. I have a Blast using it to make
            Good app. It was awesome until the update. I can't start a new project or add a new layer to a project already started. Please fix this.
            Great. Thank you for that smudge tool! very needed. This app is perfection itself
            Best photoshop app for the iphone. PSD export, layers, blend modes, correction tools. etc. It's my go to app for corrections, adjustments, and compositing. Easily
            replacing 3 different apps that I used to use.
            Awesome App - get it. You get a lot of functionality with this app. It's extremely useful. my go-to app when I need to 'Photoshop'. get it.
            Incredible App. I recently downloaded this app. It is way more than I ever expected. It is almost like having Photoshop on the iPhone. It is well
            worth the price. There are very good videos accessible from the app.
            Impressive. I have been using the gimp in Linux for years, and recently in OS X. I heard about Leonardo and decided to give it a try. I'm
            impressed! Leonardo has a lot of the functionality that I have been using
            Kudos . Brilliant App. I am normally not very fond of writing reviews. But this app is something which compelled me to write. Simply brilliant, very well
            thought and designed tools and yet very simple to use. I could create
            Near Perfect Image App. Though it lacks a few features which I have to revert to another app to utilize, Leonardo has such a huge assortment of
            professional image editing options, it has become the final defacto app for comp
            Serious editor for serious skills. This is the power tool for skilled editors. There are a thousand one-click "make it pretty" apps for snapshooters. Leonardo will
            do fast automatic adjustments, too. But if you're serious about image e
            Love this!. I am appalled that this does more than I was hoping for. It is like having photoshop on my phone! Thanks guys!
            Finally!. The app I've been waiting for. It's like a mini photoshop! Curves, color balance, layers, transform.ahhhh.I love it! It also
            has filter presets too.
            Intricate and intuitive!. Jammed packed with the tools I needed to be able to take my digital scrapbooking hobby mobile. An exploratory learning curve,
            well worth it, as I continue to find the combinations of tools to finish
            Amazing.. You may think this app is the same as Superimpose, but it really surpasses the limits. I can do green screen on the go. Just as
            good as any photoshop. Very pleased. Best Lincoln ever spent.
            Absolutely outstanding! *****. I've downloaded hundreds of photography apps both for taking photos and editing them. And I quickly deleted probably 90% of them.

            So good. It's hard to see/say anything negative about this app. It really does everything that it claims to do, and well.I would love to

            Does lot that other photo editors 500.00 does not. Tried 20 other photo editors, including photoshop for PC and this one has uniqueness such as saving projects the photo and entire
            stroke history can go forward and back, very good for those in fashion
            Amazing. By far the best PhotoShop type app I have used on the iPad/iPhone. Give it a try you will not be disappointed.
            So great!. The best free photo editing app. So impressive.
            Great!. Great app. There is so many things you can do with it!
            Very, very well done. Pankaj, you have created a wonderful app. The only editor I need. Thank you.
            The greatest app in App Store. This app is the most powerful photo editor software. Now, I only use it to handle pictures.

            Best Photo Editor for iPhone. I am in love with this app! It has everything a great editor needs and more. I am extremely impressed. Great job!
            The most powerful photo editor in the app store. This photo editor is very thorough and at the same time it is easy to use. I love that it has layers and video tutorials so you
            can learn how to use it easily.
            Photoshop for your phone. All in one place fast photo editor. Great job!
            Amazing ps touch in many ways. This is the second review i have written in 2 years.after trying every photo editor.Very intuitive interface and work flow.

            The best photo editor so far. I was desperately looking for an iPad photo editor that could bring some photoshop power, with High Pass filter, layers and layer

            Fantastic!. Thank you, the video tutorials were very helpful!
            I love this app. This is my favorite app of all apps! I have tried so many other layer apps and nothing compares to this one. One thing I would

            Love love love. I absolutely adore this app! Easy to use & produces amazing results everytime I use it. I photoshop on it almost everyday! Please
            never get rid of this app.
            Dom. Great editing app. Simple to use and does it all.
            Leonardo. I use this app to create superimposed pictures and to create new photos. It is easy to use and I would highly recommend it. I
            can blend many pictures together making just one creation. I love it!
            Valuable App!. One of the most advanced photo editorsavailable- it does many things that no one else does- selection tools are excellent and

            Great app but.. This app does everything I need to do plus more. But every time I go to drop shadow, I hit apply and it closes me out of the app!
            Missing one thing!. Pen tool selection.Otherwise this is the best photo editing app in the App Store (used quite a few).
            Thrilled. Superimpose, by the same maker as Leonardo,has always been my "go to" app, so I was thrilled to discover Leonardo. Just scratching
            the surface of this app and am already amazed at the wealth of featur

            As good as it gets at this point, with 1 or 2 bigg. - Things really should be farther along by now, but if you need to edit photos on the fly, or if there's something you can't
