User Reviews for VSCO: Photo & Video Editor

Please read this

Ok so I’ve had VSCO for a bit, and it was great, but recently they took away some of the filters and editing tools and made it so you had to pay and have like a membership to use them. THEY USED TO BE FREE! So I came on here to see if anyone else said anything and someone did, the response from VSCO was that they were sorry the user was having trouble getting the membership/tools and whatnot, that’s not the point, the point is we just want back what we had for free. You took away the free tools and made it so you have to pay for them. I just don’t understand. I rlly like them. But I’m sorry, I’m not paying for the membership, I never buy stuff or pay for premium stuff on apps. I guess I’ll have to deal with this. All I ask is to please give us more free tools and filters. Now for those who want the app, it’s nice, you can edit and post, follow ppl etc. BUT for lots of the stuff you have to pay to use it. VSCO, thank you for a great app. Thank you for making a good way to share with friends.Edit: I do suggest getting this. Sorry if this review sounds negative. I am just frustrated. I do think that this is a good app . I suggest this to anyone.

It’s Going Downhill- Two Suggestions

The thing that is currently getting the most on my nerves though is that when I finish editing and choose whether or not to save or to post, the phone automatically scrolls back to the saved photo. This is so frustrating when I’m editing photos that are farther back or even relatively close and my place in my camera roll is not saved. I don’t want to scroll all the way back, edit another photo and then do the process again. It’s tedious and pointless. I guess this is in place, so we can see where the edited photo lands? But, that’s not helpful. I think that a button at the top of the screen that says “jump to most recent photos” or something would be more useful. Loosing my spot constantly is SO frustrating. I love VSCO, and I will stick around because I love and am used to the editing software they have. However, I feel like with each new update, VSCO is making it harder to stay. They got rid of the studio, which was very handy. I liked having the photos I was editing in one place. When editing my photos, I don’t want my whole camera roll there with all my screenshots too. I want to choose what’s in the studio. I really want studio back. I use VSCO on my iPhone 11, and I would love to be contacted

Verification Troubles

It’s an amazing editing app that allows for everyone to make their own custom adjustments and even gives them a good selection of pre- made filters that allows the user to have a good glimpse of what the app can do. The whole feed and layout is similar like to Instagram but still has that unique feature and qualities that makes it different than the- said app. Although some troubles in trying to claim the account of others and for yourself, is quite hard as you cannot verify your account unless the email that you put in, is correct. The problem with this issue, is that many users change emails and even get new phones (completely) and loose access to their old email for them to actually verify the account. Without adding the feature for them to change their email or even add their new email/ phone number, they can’t verify their account and edit their account (such as account name, edit the bio, links, etc). If VSCO adds the feature of letting the users claim their account in different ways, then it’s better for them, altogether.

Absolutely adore this app.

Paying for premium or not, this app is the best for photo editing. It gives you so many choices to edit with, and you can also post your photos to your feed so other people can come visit your profile and see what you’ve edited. I’ve dedicatedly used VSCO since it came out many moons ago, and have loved it since the very beginning. It’s been great to watch this app blossom into what it’s become today and inspire a whole aesthetic which is so cool to me. May not be my aesthetic personally, but the fact they inspired their own aesthetic is way cool. I don’t see myself ever stopping using VSCO even though I can’t afford premium anymore, I had it for a year, and on my old phone years back, back when they sold filters and packs I had all of them too but I lost access to that Apple ID. Have no idea what it is under unfortunately even though I had it for 5 years. Lost everything. Including my access to that VSCO since it was attached to that Apple ID. I love you guys greatly, and maybe one day if I can afford premium again that would be amazing. I miss my old account lol, would be really interesting to see what’s on it. no idea how to retrieve it though. Thanks again VSCO for all of the memories throughout the years. It’s definitely been worth it.

Love it, just a couple easy fixes!

VSCO is my go-to for chill photo sharing and editing. Super simple and elegant. Just a couple things to fix:- On iPad, the feed always glitches and is a nightmare to use. The photos on my timeline will be super blown up, rotation to portrait/landscape mode always confuses the app, and it takes several attempts at quitting the app and refreshing the feed to be able to see the entire photo. I usually end up just going on my phone to enjoy my friend’s photos.- Discovering and searching for friends could be better. I often find my friends have an account, which is exciting but also disappointing because I wanted to find them sooner! Possibly integration with other social media channels or better account discovery would be nice. I would also love to discover more creators and amazing photographers outside of what VSCO reposts!- I also want the ability to search in my followers/ing list- I get it’s not supposed to be like a hyper-social app but it would be nice to quickly search for my friend and see their latest photography. - The recipes feature is really confusing- every once in a while I’ll try to figure out how to set it and change it and such but I usually end up manually editing the photo.

new layout is HORRIBLE

Not sure how new this layout is, if my app just now updated an old update or if this is brand new, but the new layout of the app is HORRIBLE. It is in no way, shape, or form user-friendly. I tend to dump a bunch of pictures into VSCO and then edit them, saving as I go. Now I have to scroll through my camera roll and I can only select ONE PHOTO at a time, I have to edit it right then and there, there’s no option to upload a bunch of pictures and then edit them later, and if I wanted to do that I would have to individually select each picture and “save to drafts” for every single one, scrolling back through my camera roll each time and THEN I can go to the SEPARATE “Drafts” tab to edit it. One of the worst parts of this whole feature is that if I select a picture and edit it right there in the “Studio - Camera Roll” tab, there is no way to save it to my camera roll AND save it to my drafts. So if I want to save it, I have to individually add it to my drafts, then change tabs, and edit/save it from there. If I want to edit it then save it from the Camera Roll tab, I have no way to go back and edit it later because it doesn’t go into my drafts, where it would normally be stored. I cannot emphasize enough, this update is HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE! I am so disappointed and know that VSCO can do much better — it’s as if no one thought these changes through. Very disappointed. Please go back to the old setup.

VSCO journals/ new update

This used to be my favorite social media app because it has never been related to likes or the amount of followers you have. I have been using VSCO for over 6 years now and recently the quality of the app has GREATLY depleted. I am constantly having issues with cropping my photos. I woke up this morning to see my app had updated and that all my Journals were removed. I looked up online and found that VSCO has gotten rid of the journal section for good starting today. I have 6 years of photo journals on this app, that are now all deleted. They creators said this change happened because journals are not creative and they want to keep this a creative space. Well I have been using journals to group photos together like an online scrapbook. Along with that I am an artist and use them to keep track of my progress, so remind me why that isn’t creative enough for you? I am so upset by the removal of journals and all my hard work on keeping my journals up to date with good captions is now gone. The least they could have done was give a warning about this so I could have saved them before they got completely removed. And worst of all I tried contacting the VSCO team to see if there is a way to recover my journals and they have zero information on their website on how to get in touch. Not even an email.

It’s cool

I really enjoy vsco, it’s a fun app I know many people who wish there were comments and likes things that normal social media apps have but I don’t mind, it has good filters but I wish there were more things for free. Don’t get me wrong this app has a lot of free things, but personally I’d love to have the filters the membership offers, but I don’t feel like paying money for it since I don’t use it to often. Just a suggestion. I ,however, do really enjoy the free Dsco feature I love taking short clips and I like how that’s free, it’s also a shame that I think you have to be a part of the membership to post videos. But unlike other apps this app has a lot more than just filters and has things like exposure and contrast to match what you think looks best on the picture there’s a large variety of things you can use to edit your picture, and I have to say they look amazing, I also like how you can repost it and favorite it, it’s different and I like how you can see the posts you have respirated, I also love the discover feature so you can see cool images that other people have posted I defiantly use the studio a lot to edit my apps, and I personally don’t own any social media but it’s cool that it can save to your camera roll and you can post it in other social media apps. Overall, it’s a great app and I would recommend it to a friend (I have actually)

Great, except cannot override original photo

I have been using VSCO for years. I am the family photographer (dslr/iPhone) and have found VSCO incredibly easy to just make simple, stylish, modern edits to photos. It has helped me capture deliver beautiful memories to my family members for years.The greatest feature of all (imo) was recently removed from the last update. I used to be able to save all VSCO-edited photos to my camera roll and have it apply the changes to the original photo. Now, with the feature removed, I have to save all drafts to the camera roll, which creates duplicates (original and VSCO-edited photo). I don’t want duplicates in my library, especially when family photos are often nearly 50+ or hundreds for each event or baby milestone. I get the idea of there being an artistic reason for having this feature removed, but as a person who is incredibly busy and having just recently started a family, I just don’t have time to sort through my photos to clean up my library or filter through the duplicates to figure out what to send to my family. It is so, SO frustrating, especially as a VSCO membership holder. I will continue to use VSCO, but please bring back this feature for my sanity as well as others (it looks like I am not alone with missing this feature).

Unfair Paywall

As a long-time user of VSCO since 2014, I find myself increasingly disappointed with the direction the platform has taken, prompting me to share this negative review. While VSCO initially offered a unique and creative space for photography enthusiasts, recent changes have left me feeling unsatisfied and frustrated. One of the most significant issues I have with VSCO is their decision to put filters behind a paywall. When I first joined the platform, I eagerly invested in a collection of filters, expecting to have access to them indefinitely. However, VSCO's decision to gate these filters behind a subscription membership feels like a betrayal to loyal users like myself. It seems unfair to expect us to pay for filters that we have already purchased, essentially holding them hostage unless we subscribe to their expensive membership plan. Speaking of the membership, let's address the elephant in the room: it's simply too expensive for what you get. VSCO's pricing structure feels exorbitant, especially considering the limited features provided in return. While the subscription promises additional tools and access to new filters, the value simply doesn't justify the cost. Many other competing apps offer similar functionalities at a fraction of the price or even for free. VSCO's insistence on maintaining such high prices without providing substantial benefits is a disheartening business strategy.
