Access Excess says:

I could use this to edit my photos before publishing them to Instagram! :D

Scott B says:

Just got an iPad 2 and I think this software is what I need for the new cameras.

bebass says:

I'd love a copy - I use my iPhone for pictures all the time - and I'll be using my iPad a lot too - thanks for the contest. I hope to win !!

sean says:

I just got a Ipad 1 and i'd love to start using it to edit my photos on the go

Mark Schade says:

I would love to use this on my new iPad 2! What to see what this bad boy can really do!

myerscb says:

who doesn't need a photo editor to edit snapshots with?

MAGNUS says:

Oooh.... I want. I would love to be able to edit on the go. I have a ton of pics I just added to the iPad and this could make for hours of fun whilst on the john. lol.

HiDefMkter says:

I just got the ipad2 and am already using it heavily at work. I am looking for a solid photo editing app, though. maybe this is the one! I'd definitely like to try it before recommending it to anyone in the office.

dloveprod says:

I should have never started Smurf Village, it's my new Tap Zoo.

jfaneuf says:

My wife is really into photography and it would be nice to see what it can do.

Vox says:

I want FX Photo! It'd be great to play around with the pics of my kid before I put them up on family is starting to get bored with plain ol' regular pics of him after the first hundred :)

iamfudge says:

I would love a copy to edit on my ipad before sharing them. It may help the poor camera on my ipad take better pics.

Mannon says:

Actually the app (fx photo studio hd) is $0,99 today only. I would love to win it in the give away, but think i would just get it for this cheap

Corey says:

I'm getting my iPad 2 today and I need a photo app to put on it!

warrior15r says:

I just got an iPad 2 and would love to edit photos on it!

Tommy says:

Would love to be able to edit my photos on my iPad.

Jebadoa says:

I would use it to show an anti-apple friend of mine yet another reason why he should quit being so stubborn and buy an iPad.

sadlybrokeboy says:

I've love a copy as I take all sort of photos on my iphone when out and about and would love any chance to improve/play with them on the phone :)

sadlybrokeboy says:

Obviously when I say phone I mean to find an appropriate place to hang my head in shame for the typo! ;)

Terry Rodecker says:

I generally use my phone (currently an iPhone 4) to take snapshots with. My digital camera is 5 years old and doesn't perform as well. The pictures are kept on my computer but since I use my iPad as my primary surfing/reading device, that's what I use to show other folks those pictures. If I could have a photo editing package, it would make me a better photographer but it should help me fix the pictures I do take.

OrionAntares#CB says:

I just came to see the "creative" statements for everyone else. Though I like Mannon's point about it being on sale today.

GrandmaBetty says:

I just love editing photos on my iPad. End of story.

mozthefox says:

I would love a copy. I can then, finally, be too cool for school :o)

Cory says:

I'd like to try FX Photo Studio HD because you told me I had to write this to try it.

Tom says:

this could be the first app to be downloaded to my brand new iPad 2

tavella says:

I'd love to try this out on my iPad2.

Paul Sparaco says:

I am taking my ipad 2 to Yankees game tonight. Could really use a photo editing app to edit derek Jeter's pictures:)

Bryan Clark says:

I LOVE photo editing apps for the iphone, and haven't had a chance to upgrade everything to ipad versions. I would love to give it a FX Photo Studio HD a shot. Thanks guys!

jal39000 says:

I can't think of anything clever to say, but FREE is always good in my book!


Would love a copy for my new iPad 2.

djayme7 says:

because i love tipb and taking pictures!

jhoove09 says:

I do a lot of image editing by request in the Wallpapers forums here and with FX Studio, I wouldn't need my MacBook to do it on the run. I could fill those TiPb member request faster and better! Hook me up!

Jamie Todhunter says:

My daughter and I could use FX Photo Studo on her new iPad. I could help teach her about the different effects filters have on a picture.

Bobbi says:

Would love to be able to edit photos right on my NEW ipad 2

RisingPixels says:

I just love editing photos on my iDevice. End of story. Would love a copy for my new iPad 2. :)

Using the larger screen would be much better than the iphone.

Keith says:

I love FX Photo Studio already, having it on the iPad would be awesome!

Lucy says:

this could be the app that makes me keep my laptop switched off more often

Carly says:

I am taking a trip in a few weeks to see my youngest sister, whom I haven't seen in four years, and my just-born nephew. I'll be taking my digital camera, my iPhone, and my iPad, and I would really love to be able to blog and publish photos during the visit instead of waiting until I'm back home at my computer. I think this app would be awesome to have for that!
