    Is anyone else disappointed that they have not yet changed or improved any of the UX for the actual editing process? It involves soo much jumping around to fine tune an image, and when you have purchased all of the filter packs it takes forever to try each one or scroll/jump to a specific one.

    Because the film style filter packs are what they were initially known for, I would think it's in their best interest to be constantly iterating that experience to be better/easier. I think in it's current state it encourages users to reuse the same filters over and over and not try new things or experiment much.

      It has always surprised me that there was not a cleaner way to bucket the filters given to us. For example, even just separating B&W out...

      I also wish it was "smart" where it had the option to auto arrange filters based on use. This way , your top used filters and adjustment options are always at the ready.

      I've been using Darkroom to solve this problem. Pretty stoked with it Darkroom – Photo Editor by Bergen Co. https://appsto.re/us/AbG04.i

        I use Darkroom as well, typically when editing photos from a Fuji X70. I don't use their presets at all, but like the interface for common edits - exposure, contrast, fade, not to mention the Curves tool. I try to keep the integrity of the film simulation I choose in the camera, and just not apply any app filters.
