PicsArt Photo Editor + Collage Reviews
Amazing and Easy to use but..
So the 3 stars is 5 for the actual functionality of the app. It is good, it does work. For all intensive purposes it is a photo editing app that works quite well. I was around before the premium membership and I enjoyed it far more. The ads are whatever I am used to it with free apps. What does bother me though is the new premium membership. Look I understand that you all worked hard on this app and that money is a thing people want. However this is a photo editing app, there is NO NEED to have to pay a MONTHLY membership for photo editing. You know what else charges monthly membership? Netflix, disney +, the ENTIRE adobe creative suite package, and many more services that offer way more than this app. Pay $5.99 a MONTH just for a few filters and no advertisements? That’s ridiculous. I wont pay for it and being bombarded every 5 seconds by and ad telling me to “go premium” is starting to annoy me. I used to recommend this app but now I can’t because I would feel like I am telling people to get the membership and I don’t think it’s worth it. Other apps have the exact same package of filters and editing tools with no ads for a ONE TIME payment. They do this for a reason because it’s a lot easier to convince 20 people to pay a $4.99 one time fee than a reoccurring payment every month. That’s my suggestion throw out this premium monthly plan and just make it a one time payment. I’d actually buy that.
Used to be my No. 1 photo app
I don't know what happened to this app... I have been using this app since it FIRST came out... That has to be at LEAST 10 years, but pretty sure much longer than that even. I loved that it was free, but I purchased sticker packs and other items here and there. Now I can barely use it. When I am trying to use it on my iPad, literally EVERY 30 seconds it launches Safari and some random window with spam... Including invitations to naked photo sharing (definitely not something I have looked up independently) and every other spam window possible. Not even just pop up ads, which are annoying enough, but kicking me OUT of PicsArt and into Safari (which is NOT my default browser) and then into some spam or virus link taking me to web page telling me I've won something, or want me to buy something completely unrelated to PicsArt. It's impossible to do a project because I am kicked out every 30 seconds; and there are plenty of other free apps out there that I can do the same work with... So... Sheesh... Unless that stops I can't use this again.
I just looked at Safari which I never use and in the few hours I just used PicsArt to try to do project, it opened more than 200 browser windows in Safari, one for each time it kicked me out...
I was actually thinking of getting the paid subscription but these ad links worry me so much that I am concerned with their information collection.
Why would you do this to us???
I’ve been using this app for years for free. I understand that they want to make money, which is why I didn’t complain that for the last year or so adds popped up constantly. That’s what happens when you have a free app. However, I just went to use it today, and to “Apply” anything or “Save” the picture to your phone you have to PAY a SUBSCRIPTION!!!!! Not even an option for a one time payment. A freaking subscription. And you can’t even use basic featires and pay to unlock some sort of premium features. Applying text and saving are impossible without paying. You’ve ruined a fantastic app by being greedy. Basically worthless to me now, no way I’m paying for it when there are countless other free apps. Uninstalling.
**** UPDATE AFTER DEVELOPER RESPONSE ****
What a joke, did you even read my review? I dont care about the ads. I welcome them if I could still use the app. You say “the app’s main features remain completely free” but I can’t apply text without paying. Applying text is pretty basic, my iphone does it. Iphone doesn’t have a bunch of cool fonts but there are other free apps that do. Can’t apply a picture onto another picture without paying, that seems pretty basic as well. Can’t even SAVE without paying, which seems like a critical step in the process. Like I’ve said, you ruined it. Most recent reviews agree. Stop trying to defend it.
Worked great until...
I have used this app since it first began. I loved the features and the fact that it was free to use. It is unlike any other photo editing app. It offers so many filters, edits, and tools that you are unable to find elsewhere.
I used this app to edit my Instagram photos, my own personal photos, and create other fancy projects for my blog. It worked amazing! Then, it began to try to make you pay for certain edits/filters. It wants you to pay each month for these to become accessible to you. That wasn’t too vexing because some of the other edits/filters were still free to use.
Now, it won’t even let you use your own photos to edit. You must use the ones that are “free to use” on the app. This new feature completely takes away the point of the app in the first place. I feel it is fairly trivial that this was put into place. Why do that to your loyal users?
No, I do not want to pay 55$ every year to use this app. I understand that requiring users to subscribe to Picsart Gold in order to edit their own photos is beneficial to the creators in the financial sense, but it is also extremely inconvenient to those who have relied this on app for years.
I am sure there are many others that are displeased with these new accommodations, and I feel they will, myself included, move on to find another reliable editing app. Not cool, Picsart.
How great n now I’m giving 3 stars used to b 5
Really? It used to be free editing for my boring pictures n make it fun but now there’s no way to editing for the pictures almost everything have to pay? Wow 😲 I just can’t believe it n now they’re make it so hard n even more boring pictures without editing them. Disappointing for this app it’s not suppose to be paying for the picture editor. how sad they keep on changing around with everything. 🥺😑 Thanks for nothing n going to remove it this app, anyway!😑 #greedywithmoney #whoisgoingtopay
PS. I came back bc they want me back n telling me about change they had. I was so happy about that bc I though they will never change it bc of the money they wanted.. N I understand they’re making money but not everyone has a job n getting paid n then buy something with APP. I don’t have a job but planning to go school instead. I just hopefully they don’t change it n then charged everything. I love creative photos n just hope they leave the free editing where it was. N also the fun backgrounds photo or icon photo too there is some cool free icon photo to chose.. Please don’t change it leave some free things! Added more free too! LOL Thanks 🙏🏽
I wish it didn’t kick me out !
I used this app for a very long time, even longer . I loved it so much because even if I did get kick out it would still save my work in progress so I could most likely return . Now I don’t love it as I use to anyone, it kicks me and I could spend 2 hours on a project I was working on and soon as I get kick out , it’s gone and I’m starting back over ! It takes a long time for me to do my edits and make them perfect so believe me when I say I get very frustrated every time, I can’t use other apps since they always crash before I go into the app so that is why I chose this one ! Also I can’t put any stickers or photos behind the picture now , which makes it extremely hard for me to make it look good and nice and also I can’t even cut part of a sticker anymore ! I love picsart with those features now I have to go to an eraser app just to eraser a spiral on my edit ! Mind you if the picture takes 2 hours (and the time I am getting kick out and starting back over) the eraser part takes even longer to do with time and effort.
Picsart if you kindly please bring this back , that would be definitely awesome for me! Until then I probably won’t use this app for this stuff anymore
This app is something Different!
I got this app about 2 years ago, (I recently quit, but it is not their fault, I just got busy), and it has done so much for me. It taught me how to enhance my drawing and photography skills with all of the tips and photos all of the users share, it helped me make friends, and a variety of other things! It is Social Media and a drawing app, rolled up into one! There is no DM'ing, so you don't have to worry about creeps or anyone like that. You can post, like, comment, and share on the app in your account. It is relatively free, the only things you need to pay for are the sticker packs, and even those are cheap, maybe .99 cents for their basic ones, and maybe $1.99 or $2.99 for really nice ones! The also have competitions and contests where they choose a theme, and you work with it. Then the person with the most likes on their photo wins.
On another note, I had just *Very* recently emailed their help line, and the respondee was very nice! Their name was Lusine, and she helped me through.
This is definitely a one of a kind app, and you should definitely get it!
Waaay too many pop ups now...shouldn’t have to disable WiFi
I used to love this app. When I tell you that the features are amazing, that I used it a lot, but now feel it’s truly not worth the headache.., that should tell you A LOT. With their last update it’s CONSTANT pop up ads that interrupt every single feature experience. What’s even worse is that I previously paid for their sticker packs, and was still seeing advertisements even though I was making effort support them. I don’t like the idea of paying a monthly charge for this kind of app when there are free alternatives, equally as good.
We shouldn’t have to disable WiFi and data, that is, again, too time consuming and annoying to do each time for a big time social network blogger and poster. There are much more savvy ways to get us to spend in app purchases, and frankly there are several other apps I use that also have unique amazing editing capabilities, and don’t overwhelm with in your face popups the way picsart does, and even better, don’t require a monthly charge. I think there monthly charging rate is too high for photo editing. I hope they fix this in the future, but for right now, it’s literally and “truly” not worth the headache and it will now take you waaaay to long to do even a simple edit. #nowitsbroke #youchanged
Here’s a tip, and and my review 💖📸
Tip: Okay people, listen. If you are one to complain and complain and complain about ads, just simply turn off your wifi when using the app. If you have data, turn off your data for that game. See, it’s as simple as that! Also, it’ll keep the ratings up, because this is a great app! (besides the ads)
My Review: Okay, here’s my opinion of the app. I honestly really like this app! This is the best photoshop app I have ever got (and as a photographer, that means a lot of apps). I would highly suggest this app to my fellow photographers or just people who are bored and want to fiddle around with some pictures. Although, there is a bug that I noticed. When I am using data for this app, I get kicked off when I try to save my picture. I spend a very long time on them and the fact that I get kicked off kinda stresses me out. Although, knowing the brains behind this app, I am sure you will find a way to fix this bug. Thank you for making this app so good, and keep the updates coming!
Something is “up” with this app SCAM
I used to love PicsArt but after my experience yesterday, I think it’s a scam. I re-downloaded it after missing the collage feature that I enjoyed so much. After doing some basic edits on photos from my own library, I tried to save and couldn’t go further until I hit a “Free Trial” button. I tried many times to avoid hitting any button at all costs...I had already done a free trial years ago and obviously didn’t want to pay for a subscription. As I am trying to exit out, I suddenly get a notification saying “Thank you for your purchase”!!! Are you f’ing kidding me? I immediately try going into my itunes account to see my activity and PicsArt charged me $59!!! Not only that, but my ipad started to freeze up suddenly. Not 2 mins. later I was on the phone with Apple Support and they cancelled the charge for me after I explained what happened...They were concerned about the ipad freezing (I gave the Rep access to my screen so she could see what was happening) and she advised me to file a claim against PicsArt with Apple and to delete the app immediately.
I am shocked because this used to be a reputable app...I don’t know what happened to it...Greed? Did a new company take over? I never leave feedback, but I don’t want this to happen to someone else. Be warned...
What a Joke
What happened to all the free options y’all had for the users who dont want to pay a $55 yearly subscription? You can’t even get the “free” three day trial without agreeing to the yearly subscription which you will be charged immediately after those three days. I use to use PicsArt for applying fonts to my edits, but I can’t even do that anymore because they’ve taken most of the free ones out and now made them to where you have to pay to use them. I can’t even save a picture anymore without getting pushed into a subscription that’s a waste of money in my opinion. Picsart even has ads so you tell me why they are charging $55 plus tax a year for editing pictures. It’s not like y’all are Adobe photoshop 🤷🏼♀️
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen apps with great concepts change from benefitting the people and creating a community to becoming money hungry. Quidd, being one of them.
I use to really love this app, but it’s becoming more and more difficult to be able to edit pictures on this app without paying $55 a year to USE things that were ONCE FREE. Y’all aren’t getting a dime out a broke college student. Try again. If spending $55 for a subscription is a few pennies to you then go for it, but you might as well just download adobe photoshop.
I’ve used this app for years, probably when it first came out..Android and now iPhone. It’s the only app that has never been replaced. I’ve added new apps but I always keep PicsArt. It’s a great app and it’s free. Except now it’s not. And it’s a great app, but I don’t know that it’s comparable to high quality paid apps. If I have to pay monthly or yearly to access what used to be free or 2.99 if and when I had it.. then you’re really no different than all the others. And at that price, I simply can’t afford it. If I could afford a monthly or yearly subscription..trust me I’d have photoshop and adobe apps, no offense. I’m disappointed that you guys have become money hungry, and all the ads that take you to the App Store or that you can’t get out of. I understand everything costs money but that why you pay 2.99 for 8 clip art. 😳
Sorry, I’m just being honest. I’m disappointed.
Also, I continue to not want to save my images to the platform, just the gallery. There’s no easy way to edit and delete in the app either so it’s just taking up valuable space. Could you please revise the options regarding saving and also an option to clear cache files without uninstalling and reinstalling?
SAME! Problems with app!
Please help! I have been using PicsArt since 2012. I enjoyed using this app until your last update. I work on a photo, sometimes I spend a whole hour on one picture!! When I’m ready to save it to my camera roll the ad pops up about becoming a paid subscription member, I clicked out of it, tried to save picture again, & paid subscription advertisement pops up again!!! Now the subscription advertisement pops up before I’m even finished with my photo! I DO NOT want A paid subscription, I enjoy what I do with my photos with the free PicsArt. I always brag to others about how great your app is, but that is definitely going to stop unless you remove this ad that keeps popping up now B4 I’m even done fixing a photo!! which makes me then, have to delete it!!!!!! That is NOT RIGHT!!! I’m trying to enjoy your product and tell others how great it is. I guess I need to let my FB friends know what’s going on, unless you will please, fix this problem. Thank you!
A Ton of Fun
I was looking for an app to make cool Finn Wolfhard and Stranger Things edits, and I found PicsArt. I love this app a lot. It allows me to be super creative and I love just how many features there are. I’m inspired by all the other users on the app and it makes me proud of my photo edits. There are only three cons. Firstly, about half of the people on the app are there to post selfies of themselves and it is now more just a form of social media (or a more unpopular Instagram) rather than an editing app. I wish more people were serious editors rather than girls looking for likes. Like, you can’t throw glitter on a Snapchat pic and consider it an edit. Secondly, this app KILLS battery life like no one’s business. So make sure your charging your phone while editing. Lastly, and this is the most annoying, my bio doesn’t save. Whenever I write anything about myself it doesn’t save. I’ve seen everyone else’s bios like this as well and I really wish PicsArt would fix it 😒 Other than those cons, I love the app and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for an easy and fun editing app. Thanks guys! ❤️
Good, but glitchy and pricy
i was so incredibly happy when i found this app about a year ago. it is amazing and has endless opportunities. i have a lot of fun editing my pictures with this app. but about a year or two ago, the membership got more... intense. the prices were raised incredibly high, considering this is just a photo editing app, and about half of the things that i loved to use now cost money to use. i still manage without membership, there’s still plenty of options. it’s just upsetting because i would buy a membership if it didn’t cost so much. also, this app crashes all the time. every other picture i edit it crashes and i lose my progress. i don’t know what’s with that. there is also an insane amount of ads. when you first open the app, boom there’s an ad advertising the membership. once you click out of it, on the home screen, there’s and ad for membership. edit the picture, finish it, go to save it, there’s another membership ad. there also other ads to, but they really seem to be pushing this membership. all in all, a very good app, just a few strange things.
