User Reviews for Photomator – Photo Editor

Almost there...

These are my initial impressions after using the app for the first time. I was hoping it would be a Lightroom replacement, and it’s close. It would need selective edits, brushes, noise reduction, and masking on the sharpening tool. I can still use it in my workflow as a last stop to apply a filter. It would great for that because it has enough adjustment tools to fine tune the filter. I also like the idea of machine learning to supplement my creative process. It suggested a nice crop which made my model seem taller in the frame. I will be using that idea in the future! UI is great but would like to be able collapse an individual adjustment tool (on the right panel) so it’s out of the way when not in use. Currently collapsing an individual tool removes the adjustment. I would love for Pixelmator to replace Lightroom for me. I could be free of my Adobe subscription plan forever!Edit: Love to see that batch editing has been added. Thank you! I love companies that listen to their customers. I added a star just for that alone. I see file management has also improved. Great!

Best iOS photo editor for everyday use

This is by far the best iOS photo editor for everyday use. I’ve used it since its original iPad release and it has only gotten better over time. Some of the features that have made it great for a long time are iOS photos integration (no importing/exporting hassle), all basic editing features that work as expected (color, exposure, sharpness, etc.), custom setting options, batch editing capability, and RAW support. The recent-ish additions of super resolution, denoising, iPhone support, and a more fluid browsing/editing interface have pushed this app over the top as the best editor for casual users who like to make their everyday photos shine. There are, of course, still opportunities for improvement, such as more customizable batch processing, the ability to better customize the interface (for example, to hide the overall ML button but surface the denoise option, rearrange the tool order, etc.), masking capability, setting sync between iPad and iPhone, and so on… but these would all be quality of life improvements on what is already a superb app. Highly recommended over every other iOS photo editor (and I have used more than I care to admit).

Great App (with some performance issues)

I absolutely love using this app to edit my photos! The ML edit is like magic - it gets me (usually) ~90% of the way there in one tap. The editing tools, cropping, and workflow are all super easy and approachable while offering great flexibility.Unfortunately, though - the app crashes fairly often for me. I like to swap back and forth between various takes in my library, and if I do that too often, the app just crashes. During a 1 hour editing session, it crashes maybe 5-8 times, which is a real speed bump on an otherwise lovely workflow journey. I’m using an M1 iPad Pro with 8GB of RAM, and I’m unsure if the app has been updated to take advantage of the larger memory pool available or not, but I hope that the developers can address this crashing in a future update!

Very good app, could use some new tools

I really liked this app. It does a great job at manipulating exposure, contrast, and so on. I definitely want to play around with it to see what it can do. So far I think it's missing a dodge and burn tool to fine tune the image. One app I like a lot has the dodge and burn tool but it also has a similar tool for saturation/desaturation and another for sharpening/blurring. also has a similar dodge and burn tool, but it's for saturation. As good as this app is, such tools would me it even better. To me this ap has one critical problem that will prevent me from using it. It has a undo button but not a redo button. I often like to compare the before and after the last change I just did. I am not talking about the original version and the now, sometimes when I changed the contrast, for example, I like to toggle between the undo and redo button to see a comparison between the change I just did and before. Sometimes I go a few steps back and redo them again just for comparison to see if I am going in the right direction. The app missing a redo button is like trying to make a hamburger with just one hamburger bun. This is a deal breaker for me.

Don’t know but the app is freezing up as soon as I open it. I love the app but can’t seem to get it working anymore. iPad Pro 11 inch M1. It’s really annoying. I can’t do anything. The app opens. That’s it. I want to reinstall the app but my data will be deleted it says. So I’m not sure what’s gonna be deleted if I do so. I really don’t understand what’s happening here. I updated my iOS to the latest release to date. Same problem. Long pressing the icon on my home screen gives me the option to import a photo. When I do so, the app opens and I see a spinning icon saying “importing”. But that is as far as it gets. It just won’t work. I can’t tap what I want, nothing happens. Can you please respond? Thank you.Edit: Since I couldn’t wait and had no solution I deleted the app and installed it again. Problem solved. Thank you for not responding at all. You’re welcome.

Very good, almost excellent

This is a wonderful tool for photo editing. It’s such a huge improvement in workflow over Lightroom it’s just silly. That said, there are a few super critical things missing in the Pixelmator photo ecosystem:1. Now that there are versions for both iPhone and iPad can I please sync my presets?! I know I can import them (which is pretty nicely done BTW) but seamless sync seems like a prerequisite for a multi-platform system.2. Pixelmator Photo for Mac already! This is a professional-grade tool. It’s convenient to occasionally play with it on my phone but let’s take advantage of the big beautiful MacBook Pro screens (and built-in SD reader!). I know… I can use Pixelmator Pro as an extension to Apple Photos and that’s very cool but it’s not nearly as seamless as the Photos app, and the presets aren’t truly cross-compatible (and don’t sync). 3. A community tool to share and find presets would be amazing. I’d engage endlessly with that. I’d even pay a small monthly fee to be part of that community. 4. Please allow a simple drag and drop to a shared album. That would significantly improve workflow. If this exists It doesn’t seem to work for me. 5. Really nice to have feature: some sort of indication of where the last edit was done. A simple bar showing the last edited photo would be great, as it would indicate the work I definitely haven’t done in recent imports. That’s my top 5 list! Really looking forward to future improvements. Thank you!

Almost there

First of all I love this app. It’s my go to app for all of my editing while I’m traveling. But it’s not quite finished. There are some features that are missing that would enable this being my standalone editor. First off it’s got a ton of features that work fantastic. The ML feature gets it right more often than not. The program is intuitive for anyone who’s ever edited in that one program that shall not be named. It’s speedy enough to export hundreds of photos without any fuss (although my battery may disagree). What it’s missing though really is a bummer. We need masking. There is currently no masking abilities that I’m aware of and that is such a shame. The ability to add watermarks or layers would be awesome but I realize that’s not what this app was designed for specifically. This has lead to creating workflows that exist outside of Pixelmator. Please also consider adding some basic brushes in future updates. I’ve been able to create an alternative workflow here as well using snapseed but I’d love to have any excuse to get rid of that app. It’s clunky. Finally where is the noise reduction? I’ll tell you, not here. It doesn’t exist yet. That is a shame. Overall you won’t be upset with this for edits and corrections but it’s just not quite done in my opinion.

Good photo editing, but...

Hope the Developers read this. This is a good photo editor. I’ve used many other editors, and so far I like using this one. It’s very simple with decent range of tools. However there are many improvement they can make in the coming months. Two things I would really love two see is #1 adding a ‘Left Handed Toggle’ to switch all the tools to the other side. The lack of this feature which many other have, makes this a bummer for lefties like me.#2 Add a Resizing tool(not crop) to be able to export images at different resolutions. Hopefully if this feature is added that the quality of the resizing is very well. Being to resize an image from 4000pixels to a smaller custom size would be a handy.There are a few others, but for now these two would be great.

Another subscription

UPDATE:I subsequently read other reviews saying existing users are not affected by the subscription. Although I’m wary, I do appreciate that. I’ll just have to read the release notes for each release, which I do anyway for other apps to avoid stepping in a pile of subscription.ORIGINAL:The developers say, in response to other reviews, that they explained the switch to a subscription model in a blog post. Umm, I don’t read your blog posts and I suspect many other users don’t either. That’s a pretty shady way of introducing a new pricing structure. I’ve become very fond of this app, but not so fond that I won’t delete it when it starts to restrict features - nothing yet, but I stumbled on the “manage subscriptions” option when I used the ellipse menu to export a photo a few minutes ago. My hatred of subscriptions will override the strongest love of any app. I’ll start packing up my things now.

Good Lord this is all you need…

I’m a Fujifilm fan boy, and I usually use the CamRemote to transfer JPEGs directly to my Apple Photos, from there I post to IG…but when the JPEGs just aren’t doing it for me, I start messing with the RAW .raf file. AND THATS WHERE EVERYTHING HAS FAILED ME UNTIL NOW. See, I wanted to keep things as streamlined as possible without having to do stupid stuff like copying into an editing program, and then exporting back to the camera roll for the apple photo stream sync via iCloud to take over…because thats gross, messy and unintuitive—not to mention a waste of storage and leaves duplicate photos everywhere etc. And this brings me to the best thing about this app, deep apple photos integration. Now, my workflow is as easy as plugging in my SD card, importing into my Apple Photos, rating, deleting as necessary, uploading the creamy X-Trans sensor beauties that my Fuji cams spit out in jpeg and editing the RAWs that need a little extra work…all non distructive without duplicates IN ICLOUD 🤑🤑. And because Apple Photos handles RAW+JPEG images exactly the same as your other photos everything says clean and sexy. Best app ever because of the integration bar none. They knocked it out of the park with this one.
