It has been such a long time in the waiting that many iPhone photographers thought it wouldn’t happen but today the developers of Iris Photo Suite have released an update but they have renamed the app to Laminar Express Image Editor. The developers are recommending that users delete their current versions of Iris Photo Suite and download Laminar Express from the store again. This will not cost existing users of Iris Photo Suite anymore money, it is a free upgrade. The update removes Iris Photo Suite and ports Laminar Express to your iPhone instead.
It is a comprehensive update and includes support of high resolution up to 20 mp among other things, that we have listed below.

The developers have also updated Laminar to Laminar Pro, which was their iPad version to a universal app, ie for iPhone and iPad. This is also a significant update. The masking tool has been given a major revamp and all layers below the masking layer get aligned so as to provide a feedback when masking images. Another significant change is the auto-correct tool, the process is more transparent and you can see the adjustments made so you can tweak as you go.
