I adore this app, but the CRASHING!!!
Well, I’m just gonna say right off: I love this app. It has such a variety of everything for editing and you can seriously make some awesome creations on this app. But the worst part is, once you’ve made something with multiple layers of stickers, filtering, drawings, photos, etc., it completely freezes and crashes. I’ve lost so, SO many projects because of this app crashing. I love to edit photos and make wild aesthetic edits with them, but I also love to layer and continuously add things, which the app can’t handle. After about later 25, if you hit the undo arrow, it’ll load for 15+ minutes and evidently most likely crash. My phone has lots of storage so I know that it’s the app crashing. I’ve had to just start taking screenshots of my progress every once in awhile in case it crashes I still have a save point (I can’t save it because I’m still layering and moving things around).
Overall, I use the sticker feature more out of anything. I love how people can upload their own stickers and such and you can share yours. It’s a great way to share creativity and really helpful to make cool photos edits. But the app just can’t handle the excessive layering that I’m trying to do. I haven’t heard of any other app that can do this much and NOT give me an annoying watermark on my photo. I’m not sure how fixable this issue is but if it is, I would be over the moon and definitely change my rating to five stars.
Amazing and Easy to use but..
So the 3 stars is 5 for the actual functionality of the app. It is good, it does work. For all intensive purposes it is a photo editing app that works quite well. I was around before the premium membership and I enjoyed it far more. The ads are whatever I am used to it with free apps. What does bother me though is the new premium membership. Look I understand that you all worked hard on this app and that money is a thing people want. However this is a photo editing app, there is NO NEED to have to pay a MONTHLY membership for photo editing. You know what else charges monthly membership? Netflix, disney +, the ENTIRE adobe creative suite package, and many more services that offer way more than this app. Pay $5.99 a MONTH just for a few filters and no advertisements? That’s ridiculous. I wont pay for it and being bombarded every 5 seconds by and ad telling me to “go premium” is starting to annoy me. I used to recommend this app but now I can’t because I would feel like I am telling people to get the membership and I don’t think it’s worth it. Other apps have the exact same package of filters and editing tools with no ads for a ONE TIME payment. They do this for a reason because it’s a lot easier to convince 20 people to pay a $4.99 one time fee than a reoccurring payment every month. That’s my suggestion throw out this premium monthly plan and just make it a one time payment. I’d actually buy that.
Great app, just a few issues
I’ve been using PicsArt as my main editing app for quite a few years now and it has become my best friend. The multiple features are easy to use and unique to PicsArt. The variety of stickers provided by the community is unlike anything I’ve ever seen, and the fact that you can use them in iMessage is just- wow. One of the only huge problems I’ve had with the apps is crashing. I will sometimes do paid commissions on this app which can take up to three hours. It really angers me when I spend so much time on an edit just for the app to crash without literally anything I just did saving. Just a few hours ago I was doing a commission, and then the app crashed and the only thing that saved was the background. I had made a full on edit of two people just for it to vanish. Another problem I have with this app is having to pay to load fonts in- it’s really inconvenient because I have to load my edit into another free app, add text, reload the picture into PicsArt, and continue editing when I could save 10+ minutes by just being able to load in even a limited number of fonts before I have to pay. Another great option would be more fonts already in the app. I don’t think the selection has changed at all, if so very little since 2017. Anyways, great app! I would love if the developers would address some of these issues to make everyone’s experience amazing! Thank you, PicsArt!
Love the App but Hate All the Issues
By Sneaky Sneaky 101
I can create so many amazing pieces, however, the issues with the app are starting to outweigh the positives. I’ve lost so many pieces due to the app crashing and/ freezing, loosing connectivity, and more. There have been times I have submitted 3 pieces for a challenge, only to not show them at all. Sometimes I catch it before the deadline, and resubmit, but recently I did this 3 times for the same challenge in until they finally stayed. Besides all the crashing, whoever reviews the submissions need to be fired. I have submitted work only to be told it did not meet guidelines etc when it clearly did. I have been told it is a pure photography when the photo hasn’t been edited at all. I emailed about the technical issues, have answered the questions over and over , but keep getting asked the same questions or asked for screenshots.... how am I supposed to screenshot the app crashing when there isn’t any warning. It can happen as soon as I log in, or after I’ve been in the app for a while. Yes I have cleared the app, uninstalled and reinstalled the app, used the app on different iPhones, iPads etc.. yes the app is up to date, and iOS is up to date. I’ve tried on iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone SE 2020, iPhone XR, and iPad 10.2 7th gen ... all had same issues. Starting to feel like developers would rather blame users, rather than fix the app.
Used to be my No. 1 photo app
I don't know what happened to this app... I have been using this app since it FIRST came out... That has to be at LEAST 10 years, but pretty sure much longer than that even. I loved that it was free, but I purchased sticker packs and other items here and there. Now I can barely use it. When I am trying to use it on my iPad, literally EVERY 30 seconds it launches Safari and some random window with spam... Including invitations to naked photo sharing (definitely not something I have looked up independently) and every other spam window possible. Not even just pop up ads, which are annoying enough, but kicking me OUT of PicsArt and into Safari (which is NOT my default browser) and then into some spam or virus link taking me to web page telling me I've won something, or want me to buy something completely unrelated to PicsArt. It's impossible to do a project because I am kicked out every 30 seconds; and there are plenty of other free apps out there that I can do the same work with... So... Sheesh... Unless that stops I can't use this again.
I just looked at Safari which I never use and in the few hours I just used PicsArt to try to do project, it opened more than 200 browser windows in Safari, one for each time it kicked me out...
I was actually thinking of getting the paid subscription but these ad links worry me so much that I am concerned with their information collection.
Amazing app but...
I got this app because I just wanted to edit pictures and I didn’t realize that you could share pictures and that makes it better but I also didn’t realize that I would get bombarded with premium ads EVERY SINGLE TIME I ENTERED THE APP and every time I tried to post something and that it would send me back home when I try to post a picture. Also, whenever I entered the app it would want me to explore certain things, and I did that, but the next day, when I enter the app, it pops up again and the next day again etc. I love the pictures I edited but it’s just so glitchy and it says that there is no connection when I have a data plan, WiFi, and connection. And when I was editing my very first picture of my BFF and I that I wanted to send to my BFF, it didn’t let me share it, it just went straight to home.
Look, I know you want money, but no one is going to do premium if it is $8.99 a month. That’s just straight up RIDICULOUS! I’m not paying that much just to edit some pictures. Instead, it should be $8.99 for the whole price, people shouldn’t have to pay $8.99 a month they should only have to pay $8.99 once. And besides, what’s the whole point of premium when it’s just a photo editing app?
Again, I love the app but just too many premium ads and it just sends me home and it says I don’t have connection when I have a data plan, WiFi, and connection.
This app is really great and has taught me amany things about editing and I think I’m becoming really good haha. I haven’t been using this app long, but I downloaded because two people I’m close to recommended I get it, when I first got it everything worked perfectly and I was having so much fun! But suddenly the button to make a sticker disappeared. It didn’t happen to my two friends and they’ve had the app longer than me, so I don’t know if it’s a glitch or not. At first I thought maybe you took away that feature and made it premium feature only, by when my friends stated that it didn’t happen to them and that they didn’t buy a subscription, I got confused. I still am. I don’t understand where the button went, but if it is a premium feature I don’t understand why I’m the only person who doesn’t have the button. I’d like to know if this is just a glitch on my device or if it’s a feature I now have to pay for if I want to use it. Though I probably won’t since I wouldn't pay for only one feature. I’d just like to know what’s happened.
The app crashing 😐
ITS SO ANNOYING when the app crashes yes I love the app it’s amazing to use as an editor I am the app is amazing but ONE problem this app has is that I’ve made pieces that I’ve worked so hard on HOURS ON and the app freezes or crashes and closes out if the app because if that I loose all of my hard work it’s really annoying as an editor it frustrates me and I have a reason to be mad so please fix this right away i know other editors as well have this issue and are annoyed with it please at least add a feature where it saves your progress automatically so you don’t loose any of your work thag you spend hours on in very disappointed I came here today because of this problem. I was working on an edit I spent an hours and the app crashed making me loose all of my progress I hate it :( so please fix this it’s been going on for months and it’s really getting on my nerves right now so please I ask again fix it or add a feature that saves your progress instead of the app crashing and freezing this is why I stop using the app because if this so yeah that’s it other than that the app is great for editing since I am a Instagram editor it’s amazing really but I hate when the app crashes and I get mad so that’s it I hope you can fix this right away or i will stop using the app like💔
It keeps creating a line that cuts off a row of pixels in the middle
By zära b
I’m very upset and confused with why when I edit a photo by adding quite a few text boxes which is what I have to do for what I want in the photo and of course, there’s a photo limit even with the gold feature and then I have to hit apply so then I can add more text boxes but like I’d say around the 3rd round of hitting apply there’s a terrible horizontal line through the middle of the photo that cuts off a row of pixels and it just looks horrible. I have no idea why it’s there but even when I save the photon my camera roll, it won’t go away. It just cuts off the entire photo and the line looks like a row of pixels just disappeared and the two sides meet in the centre and you can very clearly tell.
I know for sure that it’s not something that I did at all! And I definitely know for sure that it’s not the blue line that’s supposed to be there that marks where the centre is.
It’s more like a seam where the two halves meet up after a row of pixels have been cut.
I tried paying for gold to see if it’s just some dumb feature that makes you pay for it to be removed. but no. The line wouldn’t go away at all after having to hit apply a few times for different rounds in adding text boxes even with paying for the gold feature. And I don’t even get how I have an “image limit” even when I payed for having gold!
Worked great until...
I have used this app since it first began. I loved the features and the fact that it was free to use. It is unlike any other photo editing app. It offers so many filters, edits, and tools that you are unable to find elsewhere.
I used this app to edit my Instagram photos, my own personal photos, and create other fancy projects for my blog. It worked amazing! Then, it began to try to make you pay for certain edits/filters. It wants you to pay each month for these to become accessible to you. That wasn’t too vexing because some of the other edits/filters were still free to use.
Now, it won’t even let you use your own photos to edit. You must use the ones that are “free to use” on the app. This new feature completely takes away the point of the app in the first place. I feel it is fairly trivial that this was put into place. Why do that to your loyal users?
No, I do not want to pay 55$ every year to use this app. I understand that requiring users to subscribe to Picsart Gold in order to edit their own photos is beneficial to the creators in the financial sense, but it is also extremely inconvenient to those who have relied this on app for years.
I am sure there are many others that are displeased with these new accommodations, and I feel they will, myself included, move on to find another reliable editing app. Not cool, Picsart.
