Vector Q, (before known as Imaengine) is a fast and powerfull Raster to Vector
translator and a complete Vector Editor. The definitive VECTOR TOOL! Turn your
pixel-format pictures into fully editable vector drawings. With custom filters
you can get from a standard vectorization with un...
It used to be amazing!
Then it got complicated and now it is basically unusable. I can’t save an image from ANY of the filters (I can take screenshot of it, that’s all). The editor is a hot mess. Many people, me included, can’t figure out how to use it in a productive manner. And then, today, while trying out the video option, I pressed for the camera and then tried to pause it so I could take a screenshot... well, now that’s broken too! It’s all a bright green image and in a matter of seconds a message appears saying that the path limit has been reached. Mind you, I’ve chosen no paths at all. I wasn’t even using the editor feature! This used to be the best image editing app if you wanted to play around with vectorization or just apply unexpectedly fun filters. It had lots of options and a few of them were for premium users but there was enough for the free user to love. It was also possible to understand what you were actually doing. How the inclusion of an editor became the kiss of death and why it’s impossible to use any filter to save an image are questions best asked directly. What happened, Mr Developer? How did a perfect and fun photo editing app became unintelligible even for people with some graphic design experience?
I am someone that uses your app 3-4 times a week. I used to love it, before the latest update. It was fast, simple, intuitive, and easy to use. Before the update I would've given it five stars. Now I give it two stars. It's still will modify a photograph in a cool way, with a lot of options. The problem for me is that I used to use 'editor' all the time, to further modify my images. When you go into the editor now, I find it impossible to do anything? I can't figure out how to change the color of an area, paint onto the image with different size brush strokes, etc., etc. These options must be there, but I cannot find them? Also, I now keep moving the entire outline of an image by accident. I don't see why you would want to do this, and it basically ruins the image, because you could never put it back in the exact right space, versus the colors. I realize the program is now able to do more things? But gosh, I wish I had never updated. The simple, fast, easy to use version was perfect for me. If I can't figure it out, I will be looking for another program, that simply does what this program used to do easily. If you can offer me any help, that would be awesome! I would love to stick with this program, but I just can't figure it out since the update.
I am a Cricut owner, and started using this app, after searching and trying tons of websites and apps, to make SVGs. I was a bit intimidated at first, to attempt it, but even though I’m still in the “learning phase”, I’ve found it to be incredibly simple. I expected so much more complicated than what it actually is. I truly look forward to learning more within this app. I had to reach out to app support, as I’d accidently deleted one of my presets while dealing with the baby. Almost immediately, he responded with questions and has restored the preset I needed. I couldn’t ask for better support, or anything more within the app. Truly amazing! ... And definitely worth the $2 for the upgrade!
In the top 5 apps I own
This app has seriously added to much to my workflow and art. I seriously use this app more than any other app and I export he pieces I make As PDFs to use as blend layers in my geometry work. The ease of use and quality of vectors is epic. The export options are phenomenal. I don’t really use the editor because I like to use affinity designer for editing the vectors. I am trying to think of a suggestion or a complaint and I don’t have any. Please keep up the good work! This app is free right? I can’t remember, but i would not mind paying to support u guys (as long as it isn’t a subscription like so many other apps are doing these days). Thank u!
I haven't updated my app in quite a while. Now I have and I regret it. This was a fantastic app. Now my favorite setting (Saturator) is gone and my second favorite (Ink Drawing) no longer draws in black and white. I now have to take extra steps in other apps to get my preferred results. Other issues: app has gone from no crashes ever for me to crashing consistently; app appears to draw vector objects differently now. There are too many curved paths and points being created compared to the version from, say, 10 months ago. I preferred the more blocky appearance from before. It really drove my creativity! Now I feel like I have to settle for what I can get. It's too bad, really. The Adobe CC version of this app draws much too realistically for me, and it seems the developer is leaning that way. If there was a way to get the old app back I'd definitely do it.
Fun and surprisingly powerful.
I'm not a professional illustrator, so I don't have--or really need--the sort of high-powered desktop apps that cost hundreds of dollars. I'm a silk-screen hobbyist, and I wanted to find a way to create vector images for printing. This is an intuitive and fun way to play with graphic images on the go. I take my iPad to the library and snap pictures from dictionaries and field guides, manipulate them with imaengine, and take them home for my screen burner. Even the free version allows you to save and share what you make, but you'll want to spend a few bucks to upgrade to Expert.
Wow! Simply Amaaaaaaaaaaaazing!
I am so happy to have found this app. I’ve been wanting to be able to turn regular photos into different types of images such as poster like images, comic book style, and Andy Warhol like images, grunge style, line art, low poly, rasters, etc and this ONE APP does it all! As an added plus, I can save my work as a pdf, jpeg, svg, and png and save to my camera roll or share on social media! How cool is that! The image can also be saved as big as 8000px X 8000px. How many apps can boast to say that. The developer says that this app may run slow on older models of iPad. I have an old iPad mini 3 and it works just great. If you’ve struggled to learn vector graphics using Adobe Illustrator, give this app a try. I don’t mean to sound like a commercial but it’s that good. Now I can work anywhere without the need for my MacBook. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the developer for creating this incredible app. Virtual hugs and kisses to you!😘🤗
I love this app!! Soo awesome! The ability to export in so many ways 😍 My only issue is in the color edit mode... when choosing pallet, there are so many colors to choose from to change that it makes it difficult for me to find the color I’m looking for. Is it possible to be able to click on an object then choose pallet and only see those 2-3 colors to choose from??
Incredible app that integrates well with a few others
When combined with other vector-based apps, which there are very few of, this one really shines as both a pre and post production tool to bring standard images into the low resolution requirements of the non-rasterized vector-based image world. There’s also a lot to be said about giving us the ability to exploit and modify the everyday basic images we capture on our cameras in extreme ways. I suggest using this in combination with Pixite’s Assembly and Adobe’s Illustrator (for desktop OSs).
A truly gratifying way of expression through graphic art.
This app has been not only educational in the way that I am learning about vectorization, but it has given me hours of true artistic freedom. I carefully edit my shots, optimizing them for vector output, then import them into the app. I've made some really nice stuff. The app has always been a bit crashy and slightly buggy, but there is some major rendering going on! Highly recommend this app for digital artistic exploration. I've been using it fir well over a year 👍🏻 thanks devs 🙏🏻😊
Wonky UI/UX, but awesome features!
I like the direction the dev is taking the app, feature wise. I'll probably even buy the full version soon. Once I accepted that this app just isn't gonna look like the better designed apps out there, I started playing with the features and I'm kind of blown away! I want to get into some textured, offset, color block illustration styles, using unsplash photos as a starting point. Having fun already.
VERY Slow; Still has rotation bugs
This is my third review update. My old review comments are completely irrelevant now. I added a star for general improvements to the app (I've pretty much ignored it for a year and it has improved since then). However: As noted by the developer, the new engine is incredibly slow. I don't think the quality of the images is different (or improved), so I'm not sure why this tradeoff was considered to be acceptable. There are still some rotation bugs (seemingly still associated with landscape mode). When i exited and re-entered the camera mode, i had only one quarter of the camera area visible. Rotating the iPad from landscape to portrait, and then back to landscape, solved it for then. Overall, this is still a neat app, but it still lacks much control over the resulting vector image. The biggest problem is the slowness, though.
The Save Load problem on my iPad Air now seems fixed Thank you - & more.
Thank you very much. Somehow the Save / Load crashing problem I was having on my iPad Air with Rev 6 seems totally corrected from a few days ago. I just now also re-discovered the Edit menu I thought had gone missing with new version 6 - but is there & seems greatly improved as well Very good Version 6.
Horrible UX and Deceptive Advertising
1. The user interface here is very clearly designed by someone who knows next to nothing about the actual science as well as art of human factors. I don’t think even a single one of Apple’s guidelines were even used here. Absolutely horrible 2. The claim of a rotoscoping feature is completely false. The app enables importing of a still image and vectorizing it but rotoscoping is where each frame of a film is traced by hand thereby enabling the artist to manipulate, replocate, etc. the moving image. 3. The vectorizing algorithm used is different than Adobe’s and Adobe’s is better. Too bad about this app as it has potential but for we who are professionals in animation and film and in UX, this is a waste of money and time fiddling with. I am furious at myself for paying the especially since Adobe came out last year with its Capture app which vectorizes well but onlh still images.
Very good app
I find this app to. Be very high quality and. Very comprehensive. It’s more than a one touch effects app. You can instantly vectorize your work and customize your vector too. Going further it offers layers and brush and other vector editing capability’s. Limitless possibilities, great results, value and its a best kept secret app for artists. They should consult me for beta testing, I use it all the time.
