Fused app review: mask and blend photos and videos-2021



The Fused app for the iPhone and iPad is a game-changer to your photo and video editing experience. This photo blender app blends videos, photos, or a combination of the two and easily obtains stunning double exposure effects.

You can select pictures and videos from your personal library and/or use the special Artists Collections of unique visuals created by talented emerging artists in the Fused video editor. This masking video app offers some unique features that let you not only blend photos together but also merge photos with videos for additional creative license to creating a beautiful work of art.

You'll find this app in the Photo & Video section of the App Store, where it can be downloaded free of charge. However, it is an ad-supported app. Check out our best photo editing apps list for more great options.

Background and Foreground Selection

Fused : Double Exposure, Video and Photo Blender is a lightweight app, taking up a mere 13.9 MB of space on your iPhone or iPad. The user interface is sleek and easy to use, requiring no tutorials to grapple with the various functions and features.

First, users must pick out the background and foreground which are to be fused together. These can be either images or videos from your camera roll. Alternatively, you may also pick out something beautiful from the Artists Collection packs. Portraits Pack, Nature Pack, and Bay Area Pack are all available for free and there are other features that can be purchased to expand the tools you have at hand.

Editing Tools & Ads

Once you've got your two elements picked out, you can then proceed to choosing from one of 20 blending modes. These modes can be previewed in real time so you can find out the best choice for your project. Further, the app also provides plenty of other tools such as color-adjustment functions and draw or erase functions that help chart out the masking and blending areas of your choice. 

Draw and erase with the tools of this photo blender app to un-blur some areas of the background picture and put them in evidence. Rotate, trim, flip, or mirror pictures/videos as you prefer in this useful masking video app.

Although this app has some great functions and features, I have one major complaint with it: the ads. Full-page advertisements tend to pop up at the most inopportune moments through the editing process, and some of these don't even have the option to be closed or minimized, forcing the users' hand to tap on the ad and have the app store open up. This detracts major points from the user experience.

Final Words

Fused : Double Exposure, Video and Photo Blender is a great app that’s marred by the constant bombardment of advertisements. I think it’s worth having on your iPhone or iPad since it does have some unique features, but I hope the developers take note and make the adjustments necessary for users to enjoy the app without having to make an in-app purchase.
