            Really good. This is amazing- though it makes me wonder if anyone will ever actually paint again.
            Fun for non-painters. Works best on buildings or landscapes. Tends to do unappealing things to faces. I got some beautiful effects on photos of my back

            Check it Out. This app good? Hardly, I rated it 5 stars because they were not posting my review when I rated it lower. Such disingenuousness

            effects to see which works best for the picture, and I easily lose track
            Delightful. I have a few photography apps including one similar to this app. However this outshines the others. The water colored photos are
            quite believable. And the numbers of filters is impressive. Just got it

            Long loading time. The loading time is too long. How about processing in a sec? That will be great!
            Nice but.. I agree that the "paintings" created with this app are impressive. It is also fun. I would like to have more control over the
            changes. For example, I would like to be able to apply the effects to s
            Not much. I was disappointed in this purchase, Glaze is a better app for the same price.
