  • One of the Greatest iPad Apps Ever Made!

    By vsaltd.jewel
    I too have been using this app almost from it's inception and didn’t realize I'd never written a review. Or, more likely did, but it was removed with updates at some point. But I am both thrilled and amazed that the developers have continued improving and updating this app thru the years. Most great apps fall into disrepair and are abandoned overtime. But quite the opposite has occurred here. Retouch was amazing back when iPads were brand new...and it’s still amazing now. The features and functionality have improved light years in that time, making it one of a shortlist of apps I couldn’t function well without. For those people who think’s purely because there is a bit of a learning curve. There's also a bit of artistry involved in using it. But with a little patience and me...this app can repair almost anything you throw at it. Someone needs to make a YouTube video demonstrating how zooming in and out, as well as changing the pen size makes such a difference when using the automatic object removal tool. Yes the app fills in with surrounding content...but it gives you fine tuned granularity to manipulate how well this is accomplished. Sometimes zooming out and attempting to repair the whole 'defect' in one fell swope works best. If it doesn’t, sometimes zooming way in and removing small parts of a defect consecutively works better. More user experience gives you that knowledge and skill. I should add reviewer mentioned being frustrated trying to remove glare...and I’ve found that this is one of the more difficult defects to fix too. But it can be done with patience and skill Despite that...sometimes a repair or object removal just isn’t possible using the automatic tool and you need to use the clone tool instead. This tool adds 'hardness' and 'opacity' control to the others, which truly does allow you to fix or remove just about anything! One reviewer mentioned being frustrated with bleeding at the edges...that's what the hardness setting is for. By moving hardness up, the 'edge bleeding' property is reduced or eliminated. A case in point. Years ago I used this app to remove objects like those shown in the video tutorials...a tree...a person...big things. But it’s gotten so good I now use it consistently to fix people's faces! Even faces in photographs which have been seriously degraded overtime. It really is limitless...constrained only by user skill. One thing I just discovered shocks me...I never even noticed the Blemish Removal Tool!!! I’m not sure when it was added, but I've always used the Clone stamp for this with great results. I write about mobile technology for 2 websites, therefore I run across a lot of apps. I've never seen another app that comes close to this one's feature set, nor one that implements those features quite so well. I did encounter one pretty serious problem today. I'm not sure how widespread it is...but it occurred for about the 3rd time today on a newly restored iPad 5. The problem is that after I'm done editing an image...Retouch is unable to save it to the camera roll. A busy circle spins...but never stops spinning. Ultimately the only alternative is to use multi-tasking to shut the Photo's app down...which loses all of your edits. I suspect Retouch uses significant amounts of memory, because I have a lot of iPads, and it seems to occur on the lower end models rather than the Pro line. It occurred twice today on an iPad 5 and once yesterday. I don’t believe it’s ever occurred on one of the 10.5” Pros...and I'm uncertain regarding the 9.7” Pro or iPad Air 2. Another thing I just discovered reading through all of the app information within it is that there apparently is a 'latest edits' menu item which may solve my problem entirely! I'll check it out. But that leads me to mention the fact that there's a lot of helpful information about how to use Retouch right inside the app. In checking out the latest edits I discovered that this works well if you're using the app in 'full mode' as opposed to using it in 'partial mode' whilst within the camera roll. My problem occurred while editing from the camera no 'latest edits' menu item is available there. My solution was to edit the same photo within the full app. I did not experience a repeat of the problem there and love the Latest Edits feature too! I was going to remove a Star just to get the developer to see my review...but found that I can also report problems I'm experiencing from within the Apps settings instead. So I'm giving this app a well deserved 5 stars despite this problem, because I'm certain the problem will be fixed shortly.

    When you want to remove object, lines even segments in a picture, this is the app you’ll need. You wont go wrong,,, trust me!
  • Easy to learn and easy to use

    By Lothardo
    I am used to edit with Photoshop, but when I accepted an invitation to hold a workshop on photo editing with smartphones I dived into that world. I found several great apps, but Touchretouch is the simplest and most intuitive by far. I recommend this app.
  • Best app I’ve ever purchased

    By Hah0808
    This app works miracles!
  • Impressive

    By F9er
    I don’t write too many reviews. But I have to for this app. Frankly, it’s amazing. Very simple to use and does a great job. I’m really impressed.
  • Sad waste

    By ninasonnen
    I was looking for an app to get rid of a glare and the reviews for this app were glowing. I think everyone can relate to having a picture you love but something is ruining it so you have to scrap it. I was so excited to use this for my pictures. Sadly, this app is just like every other photo editing app, except this one will cost you! It replaces the objects with things nearby and it just looks weird. Save your money, don’t buy this app. I would be less upset if I didn’t waste $1.99.
  • Works almost too well!

    By Dillasaysgo

  • I'm surprised I haven't written a review already

    By PhelineCat
    I've been using this for years and it gets easier, better and faster for me./ An early reviewer complained about a migrating couch in a photo she was trying to edit and that's just part of the learning curve. Another worried about fiddling with her photos because she's clumsy… for both, deliberately duplicating them before starting to edit would probably be reassuring. What's really missing is a "confirm cancel". I (seriously) have developed significant pain in my left hand when I'm using this a lot because I need to avoid the "cancel". I save often, duplicate and return to editing the new file but there's NO REASON for not needing to confirm. I'm tempted to give a low rating to get the devs attention because I'm serious about the physical pain and damage to my hand.
