Photoshop Mobile: Comments on App
I am a photo enthusiast/hobbyist. I strongly believe that most photos should be fine-tuned with software. The eyes see/sense what the camera cannot capture, and photo software tuning is needed to simulate what the eyes see in real life.
So, I use several iPhone photo apps, sometimes in conjunction with Photoshop, sometimes by themselves with no Photoshop use. I believe that iPhone photo apps are getting significantly better all the time, and often are appreciably better than Photoshop for their specific function. BUT ! iPhone apps are also getting more expensive all the time. Costly "subscription fees" have taken the place of outright sale of an app.
iPhone apps that I use daily are listed below. Each either has better quality output, or is significantly faster than Photoshop. And has a much more user-friendly interface.
I just began using another iPhone app that is definitely better than Photoshop for its primary function, but almost as costly as Photoshop. I really don't object to the Photoshop monthly fee, because it has so many uses. But a very costly single-use app stops me cold. I then question why Adobe, with all of its resources and talent, cannot offer the same results, included in Photoshop for the one monthly fee.
This iPhone application is Remini by BigWinePot I tried the free, ad-overwhelmed version and liked it enough to subscribe for three months. The annual pricing was better, but I wanted to make sure that I would stay a user.
The Enhance+ feature is very, very good. It will take blurry photos and make them look fresh, clear, maybe professional. The results are much, much better than Photoshop fine-tuning. And/or easier. But after a few uses of Enhance+ I discovered that I had to now buy "Pro Cards" at about $1 each for each use of Enhance+.
Adobe ? Why can't you do this ? In Photoshop ?
While I'm here, why can't Adobe have a super-resolution feature that is as good, hopefully better, than the free online photo resizer/enhancer websites?
Every time I answer a survey about Photoshop, I always say "Why can't you do as good as many apps?" And now I'll add to that "And all for one price?"
