User Reviews for Brushstroke

dev comment on camera access

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

Emphatically Recommended!

I bought this exceedingly cool app several years ago! But I haven’t used it in some time. (I Love photo apps). I do remember it fondly.I just tried it! This most creative app still works as well as it always did! The developers are not dangling carrots in front of your nose., trying to line their pockets.Rather they are providing an attractive app which is sure to serve as a muse for all sorts of creative endeavors. You’ll feel revived, enthused and raring to go. There are oh so many possibilities to help you make some of your prettiest photos into colorful paintings.Certainly I’m going to add the reasonable packages. It’s the least I can do for the developers that could inspire turning your photos into your own Monets, Manets, Degas and all the other Impressionists! Take a photo and GO CREATIVE!

Great tech held back by clunky, nonstandard UI

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.

Excellent app!

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.

BrushStroke helps me see various aspects of a photograph by giving them extra emphasis in its “paintings”. I see the possibilities and compare them to the image I’ve already formed in my mind. It helps me plan my painting; get a better sense of how to approach it.Not all of its choices are well suited to the subjects I select, but that gives me a better idea of what to select as my subject if I were to choose a different style for a painting and still use a photograph as my starting point. So, in that sense, it is also art educational.

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.

Picture to painting

I took a picture of my wife while drifting down the Missouri River. The picture was ok but after working with Brushstrokes I created a very nice painting. Floating the rivers in Montana is a favorite pastime for us so this celebrates those events. This was a Christmas gift to my wife and I had it printed on canvas. It came out great and now hangs in our bedroom. Their customer service was great and very responsive! Over all I received a great painting and good service I’m very pleased.

Way awesome!!!

This app is so much better than the real thing because you don’t have to worry about making a mess and having to clean it up and I love the fact that I don’t have to worry about spending an arm and a leg on the real thing and I would strongly recommend this app to anyone who likes to use their iDevice as a painting area and not have to worry about getting your clothes all dirty. Don’t listen to those naysayers who give you bad ratings because this app is so awesome and way cool. 👩‍🎨

There’s a problem.. update: It’s fixed !

(Updated to say it’s exactly what the developer said it was. Simple fix, all is well.) I’ve always loved this app for so many reasons, but recently there has been a glitch in the near center of every uploaded image that looks like a white scratch. Close up it looks like a line and two dots. It appears on any image I upload and stays there saved to my camera roll. I have to take my finished image to another app to erase the glitch. I hope it can be fixed.

I won Christmas this year!!!

I made a picture of my Mom’s old dog into an incredible looking painting, ordered it straight from the app, and shipped directly to my parents’ house. I did the same for my sister with a painting (from a picture) of her three boys when they were younger. They both cried tears of joy and couldn’t believe how well done they were. They both told me it was the best gift they’d received in years. The paintings were professionally framed, canvas taught, hanging wire in place and the artwork was ready to hang straight out of the carefully packaged box. All of that said, if you’re interested in having a physical painting ordered from what you created from your picture, be prepared to spend $80-$150 per print depending on how large you would like it. I think if you find a piece that you are really proud of, it’s worth the price tag. If you’re not interested in spending big bucks, you don’t have order them, you can save them to your device for free. Anyways, this app is dope. And it helped me win Christmas.
