I’ve been a professional photographer since the mid-60s. (Remember Nikons, Leicas, and Hasselblads?) Since so-called retirement I have dabbled with image manipulation having determined that absolute reality was highly overrated. So far I have been displeased with what was available. The discovery of Brushstroke was a revelation. This app is exactly what I have been looking for. I can recommend it unreservedly to anyone looking to see the world in different, and exciting, new ways. The customer service is also outstanding and very quick. If you have a problem or a question about the app they are on it right away. You are missing something if you don’t have it.
This application would be great. It does a pretty good job turning photos into paintings. But the process of importing photos is clunky; the user interface controls that it uses are non-standard. Its photo picker doesn’t deal with nested albums. And I can’t search for photos by name or title or face. It should just use the normal Photos picker, which would be able to handle all those things. It’s difficult finding the photo that I want to use in the application. It also doesn’t have an action extension and it doesn’t handle drag and drop. Because of this, if I have an photo open in Photos, I can’t open it in Brushstroke. We have to go hunt for it in Brushstroke’s clunky nonstandard slow UI. It also resets its settings (like filter and canvas texture) every time I reopen the application. It also is difficult to switch between the filters I want, since there are so many filters (dozens), and I use only a few of them. I should be able to save my favorite filters, instead of having to scroll through a dozen filters every time we reopen the application.
I made a cool version of a photo within 5 clicks when I first opened this app. Very pleased with how it turned out. I decided to order a canvas print, but found I was able to order it from the same printer for 1/2 price by ordering directly from the printers website instead of thru the app. We are very pleased with the print hanging on our wall and we get lots of comments on it every time we have visitors. So, to recap, the app is cool but the printing option from within the app is too expensive. Save the artwork and upload it for printing via the web for discounts.
It’s a good app in almost every way except that it refuses to allow the user the choice of not using the camera. Why is that a problem? It’s a huge problem when the camera turns on and is live either looking in my room or at me. I only wanted to use my Photo library. It wouldn’t let me. I’m not happy about this because so many off the apps I’m interested in are made by one owner. Now, if I were to purchase one, I have to wait until I’ve paid to find out if the rest are like Brushstroke. Yes, I saw those icons. Each time I touched Photo Library, I was taken to Camera. Didn’t work . It’s not that I can’t figure out how to use the app. Maybe it just got stuck on Choose Camera. That’s possible. The app works for others.
In another review a user complaint about the access to the camera, which has to be given. Otherwise tje app will not function properly. The developers statements could be interpreted that user / iphone has an issue (please reboot and reinstall). This statement is misleading. the app asks once for accessing the camera (true) but asks again (!) to get access if you want to only allow access to the photo library („Camera and Photos Access is required“). Furthermore it says: „To take photos and access existing once, the app needs permission...“. So, the reviewer was correct on his statement. A functional bug
