Fantastic App!

Super easy to use. Super quick, friendly, and helpful tech support the first and only time I needed it. I use it in my business and get compliments from it all the time! Thank you for making me look so creative and thoughtful. Ha!!

Not as advertised

Watercolors have nowhere near the detail shown in the App Store waste of money


Barely has any options to choose from. Pictures are very unclear.

Waterlogue renders into watercolors well

It creates realistic watercolors from photos. My purpose is to get these renderings to use as layers in other images, in apps on phone and computer. Waterlogue accomplishes this well.


It does an ok job but not worth the money

Great Watercolor Effects

Easy to use to create great watercolor effects on your photos!

Just Doesn’t Do Enough

This is a very limited app. It changes your photo into something that looks like a watercolor painting but, in my opinion, only about 3-4 of the choice look good. I would like more editing abilities. Sometimes I can get a result I like better by using another app to do a double exposure. I have not had luck using this app with portraits of people. It consistently makes the lip color bleed into the teeth. Not very attractive! You can do better guys!

Sharing the app...

This app said it could be shared with others in the family. How do I do that? When I am on the app there is nothing to explain the way to share it. Thanks.

The Happy App
A non-famous photographer

I tried several other art apps but come back to Waterlogue for it’s speed and easy functions. I recommend Waterlogue 100% of the time.


Only one of the filters even makes your photo legible. The rest just look like a paint splatter. Not worth $5 at all. If I could get a refund I would!! So bad. Do not purchase.
