    "I really like this app and I think this is the best one out there. It is not buggy and doesn;'t have that many ads. The filters and effects also look natural on my photos that they looked like they were edited using lightroom or photoshop."

    "Adobe Lightroom has always been my go to editor so I'm glad that it has an app available. Lightroom can do everything, from making the colors of your photos pop, to reducing the contrast and vibrancy a bit to achieve a faded, vintage vibe. It's better than just applying filters because sometimes filters do a little too much that the vintage-ness of the photo does not look real anymore."

    "It looks complicated to use at first but it's actually really easy. The edits I do here all turn out to be brilliant especially when I try to make my photos looked browned and washed to look old. It really looks authentic and not edited at all."

    "It's kinda like instagram but with better filters. It also has many stickers to choose from! I've been using aviary for a long time now and I'd rather use its filters that IG's filters especially the for an old and classic vintage feel."
