All I Use
This product is absolutely amazing. I love how much you can do and so easily. I didn’t have to but the full thing, although I will because I love the product and the amount of extra features you have just doubles. This application is easy to learn how to do without researching or looking it up. Just playing around to figure it out, is all I have done and the possibilities are endless. It is my favorite and my absolute go-to app for photo editing, graphic creating/altering, collage making and tons more. I made my engagement announcements through this basically graphics from google images and my photographs and basically did a simple collage. Like I said, I am not a pro, but the Save the Date Announcement looks amazing and so professional. It doesn’t look like anything I would have done myself. I’m so thrilled with this app, I just had to share how wonderful it is and the layout is so simple. I highly reccomend this app to anybody who does any kind of editing of any sort. It is AWESOME!

The best free photo editor in the App Store.. Period
UPDATE Jun 17, 2018: I want to say a BIG thank you, to the developers for listening, and adding the "Compare" Spacebar shortcut - THANK YOU for listening, this makes our workflow convenient, much better and faster! ---------------------------------------------- Been using it for at least a year. since then, I added a couple more editors, from the App Store, and PhotoScape X, is still my favorite editor. To give you an idea, I'm doing 90% of all edits, with it, then sometimes use features from the others, for final touches. I start most of edits with it, rarely with others. The free version, has many features that cover 99% of features needed, to edit, correct, and customize, to get really beautiful photos. You'll hardly need any another app, for these purposes. Feature that's really missing, and quite annoying, that many other apps have, is a keyboard shortcut for the "Compare" option. It's actually very surprising, that it doesn't have it already and no option is available to add it, considering it's probably the most pushed button in the app for comparing before and after edits. It's really, VERY counterproductive, to use the mouse, to look for that small button, every time you need to compare your edits. It is so essential, I would easily asign the SPACEBAR for it, that way, we won't need to take our eyes off the screen, to search for it on the keyboard. I Hope the developers, read this, and add it!

So user friendly and helpful
I’m an art teacher and I am also in charge of yearbook. I’m one of those people that technology just hates so I never got into graphic design or anything and Photoshop just goes over my head. I like to work with my hands and I dread anything that has to do with technology (art wise). I needed something free but user friendly for photo editing. Something I could navigate easily and teach my students how to use to clean up their images for the yearbook. This has been the perfect tool and allows exactly what we need. The students often figure out how to do more than I ever did. I truly appreciate something so uncomplicated that lets me get my work done quickly and efficiently. I’ve even started using it for my art images to help change color or enhance images so I can draw them or for my students to draw.

Great App. Instructions? Not so much
First I want to say that I find this app to be pretty amazing especially when you consider the cost. What it packs inside such a small program is quite nice. However, and let me preface this by saying I’ve used a number of photo edting apps, the tutorial/help/userguide leave ALOT to be desired. I don’t know if this is a small company and they simply don’t have the time but this is disappointing. If I have a question about sometihng I go to the Help menu which takes me to their HELP | Screencast page. These videos may be helpful in exploring some aspects of the app but half the time they go way too fast. If I need help on something it doesn’t help if the person giving the explanation goes knows this program inside and out and doesn’t consider that some of us don't. I don’t understand how in 2018 how a software developer can’t have a pdf guide to help the uninitiated. Please reconsider.

Amazing Photo Editor!
I really needed a good photo editor so I decided to download the free version of Photoscape X. I was so impressed by all the features that it offered and how easy it was to use. After using it for a few days I decided to buy the PRO version of the application and when I did it added so many more useful features that are blocked from the free version. My favorite PRO tool is the clone stamp and that tool has made so many of my images look even better becuase of its ability to remove unwanted things or duplicate them! A nice addition is if you dont know how to do something then they have videos for you to watch like tutorials! I highly reccomend this app to anyone that needs to edit photos it free and all the features you get are phenomenal.

Great but keeps freezing after undoing...
So this is really great!! I absolutely love it! I use it mainly to draw. However there is one thing, but idk if it's just me. So I often use the undo button when I mess up on a line, especially if I'm very far in my image. Today I had to force quit the application more than 3 times, all when I was almost done with my image after I push undo to redraw a line. The blue bar says 100% for undoing the line but it won't go away and my mouse just becomes a loading circle and I can't interact with *any* option on the app. Luckily for me, the image I'm drawing is "small" and easy to redo, but its just getting annoying now. If i can somehow fix this on my end, that would be amazing- but i have a sinking feeling i can't do that. This would be 5 stars if it wasn't for this small problem.

Great app for improving 100 years of varying types of film stock….
I had a huge backlog of photos to scan, edit, tag, and this app was the best I tried, I upgraded to the paid version within a day. I had family photos as far back as 1863 that were faded, creased, you name it. The app did a great job improving these oldies, probably looked just as good as the original one at the time. The other huge plus was color correction for Kodak Instamatic film emulsion from the 1970’s which had turned green over time. Even the current iphone photos I take look better after a run through the app. I don’t bother editing on the phone any longer.

Not Ready For Big Sur?
I really do like Photoscape and have purchased other versions in the past. I'd estimate my working with this program goes way back and in some cases, even when I owned that "PS" program, I would get the results I needed from Photoscape. That was when I worked exclusively in Windows environments. WIth the newest version just downloaded, I find PhotoScape X quite functional with workarounds. In particular, I cannot for the life of me access my Photo Library from Photoscape X. Also, when I "Save" images after using the Photo app to dump the image in PhotoScape, the program does not offer any options. Instead PhotoScape overwrites the original image and shuts down. My workaround is to move all the photos from the Photo app library to my backup hard drive and then add that folder to PhotoScape. That is sort of a pain, especially when it comes to workflow. It makes editing images loaded from my iPhone 12 more of a process than it should be. Also, I am noting that PhotoScape didn't see fit to add privacy information which is going to lead me to dig deeper immediately. This has been a great program on my Windows computer not withstanding any privacy issues I man discover in retrospect.

So far so good! I really like it!
I’ve only been using this a couple weeks but I needed an affordable app because I can’t afford Photoshop on my MacBook. This app has been great! I just needed a basic editor for photos, to crop, adjust, etc. and this has been the one for me. I tried about 4 or 5 apps but this one has been my go-to for sure, and it’s free. It’s fairly easy to learn and offers more than I thought it would. I’m enjoying it so much that eventually (when I can) I might purchase the PRO version. Thank you for a great app… BTW, I don’t usually take time to review, but I thought these devs deserved it.

I know the last photo editing software I bought was ten years ago, but what the free version of this one does is amazing. It does things to my photos that I never would have dreamed could be done, from shapening up hundred year old scanned in photos to restoring photos and making old color photos that didn't take in thier natural colors and shades transform into their natural colors and shades. There's always room for improvement, but these guys have put together one heck of a program that for my simple needs I would never go out and purchase a big name software again.

My New Favorite Photo App!
This photography application is very unique and easy to use. I enjoy this application because it is fun and the possibilities are incredible! I did not have to spend a great deal of time learning how to use this app and my photos are simply amazing with interesting features. I have been looking for a photo app just like this one and simply I lose track of time playing with the images. I undoubtedly recommend this app for anyone who enjoys being creative with photographs! Thank you for making photo editing easy and fun. Kudos!!

Finally an editing app thats not a pain in the aperture
Easy and fun, YES!, fun! I had almost given up on finding a photo editing program that didn’t make me want to curl up in a ball in a corner after just one photo, instead, I am INSPIRED to let my creative side take a walk on the wild side. Kidding aside, this is the easiest and bar none best i’ve used and the price is extremely fair. Everything in one app, no more edit, save, send to self, save, reopen in different app, etc, etc. Creative features and ways to enhance images.

Can't edit metadata or even rate HEIC images
If you're thinking about using this software to manage photos taken from your iPhone, you should probably look elsewhere. iPhones have been generating HEIC files rather than JPGs for years now, but this software still has no way to edit their metadata or even rate them so you can filter a view to just your favorite photos. This software seems pretty great otherwise, but this one omission is a complete show-stopper for me. (I sent email to the Photoscape team over a year ago asking about this issue, and was completely ignored. The update released a couple of weeks ago still doesn't touch the issue.)

Does it’s job
This application does the job! I really appreciate the accurate colors portrayed from screen to print. It is very comparable to other photo editing software with better features and ease of use. I went through a short You Tube tutorial and was on my way to editing photos. It also doesn’t seem to be quite the resource hog like other applications. This makes running other programs side by side easier on my processor. Thanks for a great product with so many great features!

This is my firt review EVER !.
I downloaded the free version of this app because I wanted to edit some photos on my iMac versus doing it on my iPhone, and I realized there really wasn't any other way to edit photos other than downloading a program from the App Store…. This by far is the best app I've used in years… I would never pay $50 for a picture editing app because I'm not a photographer and I could honestly care less but because there's so many things you can do in this app it's worth $50 all day long….

As someone who is a new mac user, and doesn’t have the fund to go out and buy photoshop or full version of programs. This one is pretty awesome!! I needed a program like photoshop without the price tag and limited features to be forced to buy the full verion. Everytime I use it I fall so much more in love with this program and makes me just want to buy the full program! I’m not 100% sure if the full version works with layers like the way photoshops does! If this does then I’d more willing to purchase the full version.

Get this app
I never rate anything but you know what - today I am. If you're looking for a wide range of options for photo manipulation or if you're looking to edit cool thumbnails for videos or create a piece of art from scratch, this app can do it all. After like a year of using it I finally went for the paid version and never looked back. It can do about 90% of the stuff I need for static images and photo editing as a content creator. Thanks!

Great photo app
I love how easy this app makes it to edit and add effects to my photos. I especially like how it is integrated with my macbook photos. I am just starting to use it but i have found it intuitive to use, unlike some other photo apps that can be kind of clunky. I would love it if there were more freebies in it, but overall I'm happy with what they offer for free. I'll look into some of the pro features before upgrading.

Fun Timewa$ter
They DO give you quite a few free options—however, they get old quick and, naturally you'll want the so-called “pro” (IE. stuff that costs money) editing tools and options. Same old, same old— what app doesn’t do that? I guess they have to make their money some how. Anyway, I have a feeling I’ll probably either never use it or use it more than I thought—it IS really easy to use. My 13 year old who, is really into photography, has a lot of fun messing around on it. Something about it irks me though…I don’t know, like, a lack of originality? :|

Way more than a photo editor
For a free application this program has some pretty powerful and cool features. I really enjoy the collage tab. The editor it self is amazing too. It has some really cool effects that will have you editing your photos with ease. You really do have the ability to correct just about everything and you can use layers to add even more effects and text to your composition. I think I will be upgrading to the Pro version of very soon.

Not just a photo editor
I don’t use this program for editing many pictures…well not my own anyway. I use this program to make short comis book stories. I use pictures I find online and cut pieces out and combine them to make scenes and characters. The features of this program are awesome for doing artistic stuff and you can get very creative with it. I bought the full version after using the free one for about a year and I recommend it to anybody

Pretty Nifty App!
Really nice app, lots of cool handy features. The ability to create a collage and add stickers or text are really awesome. The picture browser is really fast loading the pictures in the thumbnail view and you can view alot of pictures pretty fast when you are looking for something. All in all a pretty nifty app! I may pay for the upgrade because they have so many additonal features,but you dont need them to use the app. its not broken in any way.

My FAVORITE Photo-Editor App!
I've downloaded dozens of Photo-Editing Apps over the years looking for the one that could "do it all" so I could stream-line my App Collection and delete all the rest. It wasn't until I finally found PhotoScape X that I was finally able to do that and I'm happy to say I have now been able to get rid of at least 10 basically useless Apps in exchange for what I consider the BEST Photo-Editing App available... and it's FREE!

Easy to use for easy applications
I don’t want to spent hours learning how to do simple features and this app is easy enough . When I get more time and a little more serious I will take the time to learn more of the features. It’s easy to learn the basic stuff and that’s all I need for the time being . I don’t want to spend hours learning features to only use once or twice then in 6 months forget the process . I’m only a casual user .

Pretty Cool
Just playing around in it and the PhotoScapeX seems pretty cool. Only using the free version but it runs fast, has accurate color selections when trying to select fine detail. The best feature I noticed so far is that the window to open images is very user friendly. I didnt have to import or change file types with my pictures. I remember that being a huge hassle when learning other apps like this. If this app continues to be this good I am definitly going to get the pro version.

Great features
Actually paid for the premium version but even the free one has plenty of options. Really great to make collages for sales listings etc. Love the option to add arrows and other shapes to point out problems in a listing. Also can add text to add more info to a listing photo. UI is a little clunky but definitely usable. Too many silly options like filters and collage arrangements that seem pretty pointless but that's just me. I'd love to see a better photo EDITING feature when making a collage. It's fine when you're in the Edit screen but if you're doing collage pics then the edit options are very limited to brighten, darken, and a few others. If they could bring over ALL editing features into the Collage screen, that would make it the ultimate app.

Crazy Good Software for Viewing and Editing Photos
I have had this app for about a year now and it's simply wonderful for view and editing photos. So many features to uniquely enhance your photos. The only thing I wish the app could do would be to copy the setting from previoudly edited photo using this app and paste it into another as you would if you were using Lightroom. Other than that, a wonderful app it is.

Simple and easy to use
It has tons of options for whatever you want to do to your photos and it’s really intuitive and easy to use. The some of features are pretty basic unless you upgrade to the pro options, which while not unexpected, is a little disappointing for something that’s hyped so much as free. However, there’s still so much you can do with the free options, and it’s much easier to use than other free and opensource photo editing software that I’ve tried.

Great free photo editing tool
I downloaded PhotoScape X about a year ago and now I use it for all my professional photo editing, collage, and resizing. It’s really intuitive and easy to use, and so many features are available for free, I haven’t had to pay for any upgrades even though I use it for work on a weekly basis, creating images for a consumer-facing website. Very happy with my purchase. Never crashes. Always does what I need it to.

The best investement for “dummies"
I am everything, but not the artist or photographer. I have recently started my business and photos are essential part of it. I needed the app which would super “user-friendly.” Even if you do something wrong, it is so easy to reverse. The quality, features and capability impress. All I want to say, haven’t seen something better or easier. Definitely worth purchasing the Pro version.

Need to double click buttons
I know this may not be everyone’s experience, but on my 2011 Macbook Pro, whenever I click Save or Open or Rotate and some other buttons they do not respond. It makes me double click some buttons and single click others. It’s an odd problem that effects my productivity when using it. And my version of photoscape is updated. I emailed photoscape about the issue months ago and didn’t receive a response. I’m leaving a one star review due to lack of response from them about the problem. Maybe they’ll respond to this review. In which case I will change it. Otherwise it’s a very useful tool.

Good enough for the non professional users
It’s good for organizing photos/videos—sorting and moving among folders. Compaing to many paid photo managing and editing software, the functions of this are more than enough for most users. It runs smoothly and comparing to ACDSee, works much better dealing with external or shared folders on the servers. However, I can’t find a way to access iPhone Photos directly. Anyone knows how?

I genuinely love this photo editor. I’ve used Adobe for years, so there was a slight learning curve, but it’s very intuitive and user friendly. I can do everything from edit family photos to creating graphics from scratch. The free version is worth it for anyone wanting a decent quality editor and for $40, the Pro is worth it. Definitely suggest!

Not well thought out
Its cheap. It works. The UI is poor. If you're thinking this would be a good culling tool, its not. To delete an image: right click: nope, delete key: nope, menu item: nope, bring up the browser panel, its the little triangle on the left, select the image there and right click there: that works. But don't get too happy. Even if you click multiple images, only the first in the series will be trashed. So, if you have a lot of images to cull, its a laborious process that you'll abandon quickly.

Best photo editor on the app store
This is perfect. I’m not a professional photo editor so this is perfect for a beginner or for someone who doesn’t need all the fancy features in photoshop. For a free app, it has the most features of the other apps I’ve tried, and is very easy to use and export edits once you get the hang of the format. It’s the only app I use and I couldn’t ask for anything better!

liked it for about 5 minutes. I was using it on my new macbook and everything was fine at first, I was just testing out a random photo to edit and liked the features but then it started being laggy and then once it went back to normal, the very next effect i clicked it got stuck on and literally wont let me do anything. Cant close it so I went and deleted it and now its just sitting in my dock and wont go away. So irritating and do not reccomend. Dissapointed. None of the other apps I have downloaded act this way.
