Difficult to love
I've had this app since it came out years ago. At the time I left it, bemused, bcs I had no clue what to do with it. 3/4 years and several updates later I'm still bemused. It should be easy to use, and it isn't. Clunky UI. When I was (we all were) new to iPad and digital art fair enough - but I am (we all are) more adept in the medium now and I still find this UI off-putting.

Great start
This app is great, something I've wanted for a while--plastic ally a way to do selective, scaled, image transfer in a style that reminds me of burnishing or rub-on decals. I wish the canvas could be made square or adapt to whatever photo is selected for the ground. The brushes are good--there could be more simple geometric solid shapes. But I enjoy it very much-it's fun and useful, and there isn't anything this simple that is quite like it.

Incredible !!!!!
This is a fantastic app - the possibilities are endless - I use it to collage different photos and edits together into one paint-style piece. A really amazing app, and I am very picky about art apps. Also, the dev is responsive to inquiry. Very cool and recommended.

This app is kinda stupid. They make u pay for it but all it is is painting OVER a picture(s). U can't even paint your own picture(s). I wouldn't recommend it -_- :/

Couldn't make head or tails of this. Couldn't complete a single meaningful action. Well designed, but apparently does nothing. Didn't crash. Just sat there. Even when you bring in one of your own photos to work on it slides around the surface and can't be used. I suspect this is a pretty good, fully functional art tool. It's a shame they didn't hire someone with a brain to write down some helpful instructions.

Gets better all the time
Great app that continues to improve. Especially like using this in combination with the app for iPad EtchyMon that provides real time translation of scenes into many types of print-like images.

Problem
I love this app! As an ipad artist, it is one of the most useful apps I have. But an update or two ago, it lost the ability to be translucent while pinching to change the size on compose for a new image. This means I can't see what is under the image I am moving to shrink or enlarge. This has greatly increased the difficulty of placing the new image exactly where I want it. I would really appreciate it if you could fix this! Thanks!

This is Amazing!
This app is amazing! I highly recommend this! It is amazing what you can do on this. I just love watching how my pictures turn into paintings! But what is one of the best qualities of it, is that doing it FUN! I give it 5 stars but really it deserves 10!
