Afterlight
by ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLIE on 2019/02/15 23:15
Been looking for a app like this forever it’s worth the money... completely changed my pictures and instagram feed
moving in the right direction
by jeriellen on 2019/02/14 17:27
I love afterlight and have been using it to edit photos for years. I recently upgraded to afterlight 2. All of the fine tuning tools are great and in my opinion, now rival any of the major editing apps there are to choose from. But as a long time user of afterlight, I found that a lot of the legacy filters that I’ve been using to give my photos their quintessential look for years are different in the new edition. Why even include them if they aren’t the same? I’ve been processing photos between multiple apps for years which completely ruins the file integrity, and I really thought this would be the solution, yet even still I’m going back to the original afterlight for my final filtering.

Great filters and effects, downgrades photos horribly.
by Cetchey on 2019/02/11 07:51
I’m absolutely loving the effects and filters but this app downgrades very high definition photos to an unusable level. I didn’t find this happening in my earlier use of the app...very strange! There’s no update available at the moment, so I’m not convinced the problem is on my end. Please look into fixing this staff, I know editing can downgrade any photo, but I shouldn’t be able to see pixels on a picture I took on a professional camera, especially for $3.
Love that for you
by stoooooooooooopotatis on 2019/02/11 00:47
This is a great app for editing pictures for Instagram or photo shoots.Also the filters and light editing for your face helps a lot to define small details on your face.10/10 recommend to anyone who wants a good photo editor:))
Best photo editing app
by Al-Hitmi on 2019/02/09 04:50
Best editing app in the App Store
5 star app
by BasicBlondie on 2019/02/08 23:02
At first, it’s a little hard to use, but you get used to it. I’ve been using this app for about 5 months and it hasn’t let me down since. 5 stars👍🏅🏅🏅
Great
by DoraSucks on 2019/02/07 12:23
Great editing app I feel like I won’t ever have to use another app to edit my photos since it has everything you need and it’s all free! But some more stickers would be even better!
Afterlight
by Dr Ijames on 2019/02/06 01:20
Only suggestion is maybe a way to shrink the overlay picture. Love the app and the ease of use
If you have afterlight1 don’t get this one
by Delium on 2019/02/05 18:09
there’s not too much that makes this worth the purchase if you already have afterlight original. Not sure why they didn’t just update the original.
Touch tools update
by bookstoregirl10 on 2019/02/05 14:06
I like the idea of the new touch tools, but can’t tell a difference after I use one. I tried them all on different photos and can’t see a difference. Maybe I’m doing it wrong. Maybe a little tutorial would help.
My new go-to pic app @ 4½ stars
by McSear on 2019/02/04 07:01
All the best features, EZ to use, and with the custom text options and ability to resize images: GR8! This app will replace my fav photo editor, Photog***⁴, which has not been updated for a long, long time and is now unreliable. #RECOMMENDED Solid w/ no crashes in 2 wks use iPhone 8 running iOS 11.4
Almost, if not the best app for editing
by 10.26.2018 on 2019/02/03 21:09
It is definitely worth the few dollars, if you haven’t bought it already! I personally love the light leaks the most, and also the filters are diverse and perfectly designed. I consider it second only to Lightroom. Great app, frequent updates and features added. Sometimes it crashes with larger sized photos, but indeed an amazing application for photography!
Best Editing app!
by Linduhhg on 2019/02/01 18:58
I used to use afterlight 1 but then switched to VSCO! I thought afterlight was gone but I was delighted to find the 2nd version! Just as great as the first. Loveeee it so much! I love that you can make your photos look super retro/vintage, & love the polaroid frames. Deff worth it!
Editing app
by Wizzardd420 on 2019/02/01 06:39
Such a great app for photo editing. So many different choice and features. Im a full time photographer and I suggest this app 100%
Cool
by GrandMasterDingus on 2019/02/01 00:30
Cool new tools 👌
Mosaic tool.

Adding a mosaic tool would be really nice to shy people. ( ˙-˙ )

The more I use this app the more I like it. It is intuitive and works advertised.
Unsatisfied

I love this app but currently, every time I open it, it crashes and closes. Truly hope you guys can fix this
Exquisite
by hunter_lk on 2019/01/24 05:23
This app allows the user to easily and creatively tansform images into works of art. I would recommend this to any user wanting to enhance images or give an image a specific mood.
So Fa So Good
by Drone 54 on 2019/01/23 09:57
I’ve got great editing apps, PS, Ai, Etc. I’ve got to admit, this little really cool, and not just fun, but productive. Still new to me
I love this app but it has issues
by jennyz90 on 2019/01/21 07:49
I’ve been using After for as long as I can remember. My favorite editing app. There’s so much details one can add to create the best looking photos.. hence why I’m so annoyed.. I’ll be working on a photo for so long, then suddenly, the app crashes on me and I’ve lost all my hard work.. sometimes over an hours work. Not ideal for a photo editing app. I get so nervous editing now, that I’ll save it half way through just to insure that if it closes again (which it always does now when I use it) that at least I have it pre-saved. Well, to some extent. I think if the app is going to have this as an ongoing issue, maybe it would be wise and best to have a feature that automatically saves as you work. Sort of like when compiling an email or letter that keeps your work safe. Just helpful knowledge and suggestion.
I prefer the first Afterlight app over this.
by Meg Igneel on 2019/01/21 01:19
I prefer the first Afterlight app over this second one because the first one is easier to navigate through AND the first one has white borders that you can put on a picture. I use the white borders to make my pictures fit into the Instagram square. I also recommended the first Afterlight app to my brother so that he can use it for his instagram pictures, too. I would only use this app if you can’t get the first Afterlight app. I have this second Afterlight on my Apple iPod because the first Afterlight app is not available in App Store sadly. If you guys put white borders into this app that would make it ten times better than it is now.
problem?!
by Aryan josha on 2019/01/20 08:40
Hey there, During edition ,the app suddenly close!and all of the editions destroys and i must again start it from the first point!!whats the problem?
how do I get a refund?
by alexxh15 on 2019/01/19 19:08
It looks like a great app but it’s not what I wanted to purchase and not exactly what I was looking for.
Wasn’t happy about paying again but okay i guess...
by Christianvdlt on 2019/01/18 19:44
After already using the first app the second one was of great quality as expected but like I said I didn’t find it fair that I had to pay again for the same product with some new additions.
Fantastic App!!!!
by Snergio4Ever on 2019/01/16 19:07
This is truly one of my favorite ways to enhance my photos!
So far so good.
by Egg baby lover 10935 on 2019/01/15 19:49
I have just started playing around with it and it has been extremely easy to navigate. This is my first time paying for a app like this and I am not disappointed..... so far :)
Artifact is saved pictures
by Pattypuppet on 2019/01/12 17:17
When I save pictures there are light horizontal bands in them. These bands are not in the original picture or when I save using other photo editing apps. I wish I could upload a pic to demonstrate. If I could get this resolved I would rate the app much higher.
Just missing one key feature
by 7749377492 on 2019/01/11 22:47
I love this app. Super clean and versatile. Add a spot healing tool and it will literally be perfect.
In Love
by Naturally Lazy College Student on 2019/01/11 20:49
Was tired of VSCO.... and this app literally made it fun to take pics again. The way you can use it to capture the lighting your eyes see, sets it apart from many other photo editors! I love how you can selectively adjust different features and the navigation is relatively simple and clean!
Where is Afterlight 1 ?
by jelena.marija on 2019/01/10 03:00
I love afterlight, but I got very upset when my app all of a sudden wasn’t working anymore so everything I could do was delete it and reinstall. Then I had to find out that the app I used to have no longer exists and that the new app is missing some of the filters, especially for the dust effect. Also I used to be able to flip the dust layer, not just to rotate it. I want the old app back 😭
I do love this app... does have glitch
by Gypsyavalon on 2019/01/07 21:49
Hi ! This is one of my favorite photo editing apps. The only issue is that when you go to albums it freezes and it doesn’t open . Also when it does randomly open it doesn’t access all the albums just the main one. Hopefully this will be resolved because I love this app. Thank You!
Still best editing app but buggy as unusable
by MANIACARAM on 2019/01/06 17:54
Less than 1 yr old iPhone 8 clean iOS and it keeps crashing and screen goes black. 1 much better. This is unacceptable for a PAID app. Money black please.
not worth the money
by Puppy love_2167 on 2019/01/06 02:51
Snapseed is way better, and it is free. This app is lame, and the filters are cheesy.
BEST PHOTO EDITOR EVER

I actually like this app i bought it because i had some money on my wallet and i wanted a photo editing app but nowadays i would like an app to change the focus like the iphone 7-8 plus and x cameras do but i dont want to buy another app so why dont you guys add it?
Rip-off
by Jewels10167 on 2019/01/03 01:57
This app isn’t like any of the images you see. It’s all fake, and you won’t achieve that. Yes, you can brighten images up and darken them, but only to the whole image. You can’t do that cool photo of the girls hair on a phone, it’s not even an option. I watched a video from 2014 and it had it then, but not the type you think. You would have to edit the whole photo or retake it to fit and it could take up to 5 hours doing it. There is no blending option or blur tool so you can’t even do that, but if there was again it’s only for the whole image and not parts of it. There are good parts about this app but not many, and unless this app upgrades itself then I do not recommend it.
great
by Nainai_Forevs on 2019/01/02 05:20
best editing ever

by ameliareign on 2018/12/30 18:05
My favorite filters are the contract scrolled all the way to the left. (to make it look old fashion)and the dust effects.
I really like this app, but...
by jimmorrisongirl on 2018/12/30 08:28
I really the app but, for some odd reason when I want to put a photo from one my album, the one I have on my iPhone, it doesn't let me get the photo. I don't know why. I try deleting the app and getting it again. And I even try turning off my phone. But, it still doesn't really wanna work. I was wondering, could it be because I have and old iPhone. I have the iPhone 6.
Almost perfect!
by Janakakynrnf on 2018/12/30 06:19
The one greatest thing about the app is it’s one-time price. I was skeptical at first, but I played around and it’s as easy as using Lightroom on desktop. It’s fairly easy to use if you’re coming from other editing softwares. And RAW support is awesome! The only downside that I have is that there is no way to see HISTOGRAMS! I have looked everywhere for it and I don’t think it’s included (if it is, I’m sorry, please help me). Hopefully, histogram support will be at least considered in future updates. Everything else seems great!
AMAZING APP
by Atlas Photography on 2018/12/29 15:27
the app is so cool you can make one photo tell a completely different story than the original and it jut has so many amazing features, filters, and packs. best editor i’ve ever used. 10/10
Amazing!!
by StephHillner on 2018/12/29 10:07
I have used the original Afterlight for quite a number of years and it’s always been one of my top apps for editing. All I have to say is WOW!! A2 is unbelievable! I am SO glad I bought this app and gave it a shot because it’s so awesome. Just 3-5 minutes of playing around with it proved that it’s far superior to its first edition. Excellent app!! Bravo! Happy customer here :D
Perfect
by popcornJob on 2018/12/27 18:33
I love everything about it, it's not laggy, no adds, & it does not crash! I recommend this app :3
Great Photo Edit App
by lwmc45 on 2018/12/26 00:16
I love this app because I can make it appear lighter when it wasn’t. It was worth the money. And the best app to edit photo’s that I have used. I recommend it definitely. Of course there are a lot more features than that, but that is one of my favorite.
best app

Crash. Crash. Crash.
by Cmander8 on 2018/12/20 04:11
I just bought this app, and every single time I attempt to edit a photo, BOOM, the apps goes black and crashes. I’ve been attempting this for nearly an hour. Deleted the app then reinstalled it several times, issue still occurs.
I love it, but borders...
by Casey3560 on 2018/12/19 17:53
Honestly this app is super great and I love all of the new features added! One thing that I hope you can add back from Afterlight 1 are the borders. I use them for every photo and I don’t want to have to switch between each app just to add the border to it, you know? Hopefully you see this and consider adding them back. Thanks!
Simple and Intuitive
by Keyur82 on 2018/12/18 19:23
It’s becoming my go to app for photo editing. It has plenty of profess features and it’s simple enough to use. I would have liked it even more if it had some kind of healing tool, but I fall back to touch retouch for that functionality, which is also an awesome photo editing app by the way. I use Enlight for some advanced double exposure features but for everyday photo editing no other apps I have used beats afterlight 2 so far. I highly recommend this app along with touch retouch for anyone who doesn’t want to spend hours in editing photos (although you can if that’s your thing.) these 2 apps together takes care of almost all the photo editing needs.
Easy to Use
by Ms G Martin on 2018/12/18 03:06

Whenever I edit an image from the Photos app with Afterlight, the app crashes every so often.
kinda like vsco but more features
by emilee marie:) on 2018/12/10 18:44
idk how much vsco costs for the “vip” but this was only like $3 and it’s great!! i like to use both apps to edit my pictures to go with my theme for instagram :))
Nobody’s perfect
by MaryElizaHall on 2018/12/10 14:51
It’s really annoying that I had to purchase afterlight twice. Also it crashes after two edits when I use it within iPhone photos app. But I still like it.
Truly the best
by Wesgeo on 2018/12/09 23:01
I’ve been reading about this app for about six months now so decided to purchase. I have snap seed adobe photoshop express and even ProCamera filters and each has their limitations. This app pleasantly has all the features I want. So. I’m happy I pulled the trigger

feedback
by lau milo on 2018/12/04 21:16
I used to be a devoted afterlight user but ever since the last 3 updates the app seems to crash a lot. I love the new filters, but some old filters seem to have downgraded for whatever reason? the filter cascade isn’t the same tone it used to be, it looks like a weird yellow overlay. it’s also quite difficult to find the filters I’m looking for now, feels like the filters are all over the place. I must say I miss afterlight 1 and how simple it was, it shouldn’t have been removed.
Great app
by Camslemens11345 on 2018/11/28 02:53

Get the app

I want the original back
by 13389 on 2018/11/26 10:40
I like the original Afterlight and deleted it from my phone because I thought this one would be better but it’s not. It doesn’t have all the features the original did. Not impressed and now I’m sad I can’t get the other one back.
Crashes
by ketomomtog on 2018/11/25 22:11

It’s very good for trying to controlling the tone of the picture, it’s make the picture looks cool from the regular picture to the best picture by fix the picture and bring-out more attention in the picture. I would recommend this app that you won’t regret. But keep going to make the app greater and greater. 👍🏻Like.

OG Afterlight user
by gmailuser13 on 2018/11/14 16:47
The original Afterlight has been my go-to for years. So at first, I was pretty upset about it finally disappearing, which forced me to buy this replacement when I got a new phone. After using it for the first time, though, I’m so impressed at the new features (and keeping of the old ones that I’m used to) that I have no buyer’s remorse. A great photo editing tool.
Keeps crashing on my iPhone 6
by Arash.sh on 2018/11/12 13:53
I really enjoyed the features of this app and I was looking forward to start using it for all my photos but strangely after some few touches the app crashes... everything I’ve done on the photo is gone and I should start over and over so maybe I can get it done. I hope this issue will be fixed in the next update cuz I’m really counting on Afterlight.
worth it
by Im out here running on 2018/11/12 01:46
awesome app!!! i love the dust and grain effects the most, they can create a more vintage feel to whatever you shoot.
Excellent
by phobophage on 2018/11/10 05:13
I'm very new to photo editing, and picked this up along with a few others. Overall I've had an excellent time with it. Apart from a few crashes here and there (I'm still using the 5s..) it's extremely solid and very user friendly. Great for a noob like me.

I have been using this app for a year or so now and I am IN LOVE WITH IT. It is the perfect mobile app to edit all of my iPhone photos. I have my favorite filters but I always like to change it up too. I use this app to edit my screenshots I take for my fan account and I get a lot of compliments on my editing. Huge fan and I’ve tried tons of photography apps.
Instant flim pack please
by VitaminaSue on 2018/11/07 12:16
Could you please put instant film pack into Afterlight 2 as well, for people whose country location does not offer Afterlight 1 ?!?!?! I bought this app just for the Instant Film but realized It doesnt provide it... really let down.
Filters Freeze the App
by Alarz on 2018/11/06 17:40
When editing in Afterlight through the Apple Photo App, the image often goes black and I have to reset the app, losing all progress.
A learning curve but worth it
by Salima03 on 2018/11/05 21:02
I really love this app. It has a lot of features so it takes a while to remember where everything is, but the offerings are perfect for sprucing things up on the go. I highly recommend
annoying
by Ha Hong ✅ on 2018/11/03 22:42
it has some of the features that are super aesthetic and nice but - cant save presets like in VSCO or lightroom and you have to “record” a set which i do not like, id rather have a button that knows the filters that i placed instead of recording from the top - it keeps turning the screen black and crashing!
5 star
by Iwumbo12 on 2018/11/03 00:32

Got Rid or Effects for Rounding Corners
by patalina787 on 2018/11/01 17:41
I updated from the original and am so upset that I did. In the original you could edit the cropping of photos so that the edges were rounded, but the new version got rid of this option. It’s also not great for making your own filters and edits like the original was. Wish I had known before or I wouldn’t have updated.
Layers Epic Feature for Me
by Anonymous8081 on 2018/11/01 11:21
Wish I could scale/resize layers but just being able to do layers on my phone is awesome as it is cant complain or give 5 stars :/

by photographersteven on 2018/10/30 00:50
I’ve been using afterlight for quite a while, it is definitely my #1 app that I use for editing. I love it so much so that I actually gifted my mom this app as well so she can have a simple, yet amazing app to edit her photos with. It is super easy to navigate! But there are a few things that I think the developers should put into consideration… When using the app from the photos app on iPhone… It sometimes turns black, the photo disappears and it is starting to get a tad bit annoying at this point… I am unsure if this is just me or what, but if someone from the Afterlight Dev team sees this, I need you to try to do this… Go to the photos app, choose a photo, press “edit” on the top right of the photo, press the three dots (...) that is just left of the red “revert” button. If afterlight isn’t showing on the tab that popped up, then go to “more” on the very right, then toggle afterlight “on” , then press done, open afterlight from the photos app (don't go to the actual afterlight app), then try editing, mess around with different tools and see if the picture you’re editing randomly turns black or disappears, and if it does then can you guys please issue a fix for it? Either that or make it to where I can modify the original photo from the afterlight app so i don't have a duplicate.
Initial thoughts
by Ahh Chet! on 2017/11/02 21:58
After using the 1st Afterlight app for a few years I couldn’t wait to get the newest creation. I absolutely loved the 1st Afterlight, using it over any other photo editing apps. That being said, the newest version of Afterlight is very much the same except for the new “Fusion” and “Double exposure” features. While the features are nice and provide an additional touch to your editing they aren’t enough for me to justify the cost to get this newer version of Afterlight. In my opinion, if you already have the 1st version of Afterlight then you don’t have a need for Afterlight 2. Afterlight 2 does have an updated look and layout which is extremely appealing and easy to use. Overall it is the same app minus a few newly added features, which I feel shouldn’t have been a qualification for a new app and should have been an update to the original Afterlight. FINAL THOUGHTS, I am an avid user of photo editing applications so I would absolutely purchase Afterlight 2 again due to the overall experience and quality of the app. Afterlight is in my opinion the best photo editing application available for your smart devices!
Forever Afterlight
by Cvstles on 2017/11/12 21:50
I have used various photo editing applications including VSCO, MuseCam, Darkroom, and Mextures and Afterlight is the only one that has kept me coming back. I have used Afterlight for years, ever since it’s initial release and have purchased every single in-app filter pack available, including the borders and other effects in the first application. When I found out about Afterlights successor application release, I immediately purchased it and did not regret it. I also adore the fact that the developers made it clear that once you purchase the second, there are no more in-app purchases thereafter. Even if there were, I’d be the first to buy them. The application is quality, and the filters are good. I work as a professional digital artist and would love to create a set of filters for Afterlight. I’ve tried contacting the devs via email and Twitter to no avail. Oh well, I still admire the application and the hard work put into it. This will always be my #1 go to application.
Breath of fresh air
by DavidFoster on 2017/11/04 13:10
Finally a developer recognizes that they can provide a revenue stream the old fashioned way - by building in new features and capabilities BEFORE reaching into their customers' pockets. The new Afterlight isn't a breakthrough product, but it assembles features that might otherwise require several separate apps. And it isn't just that convenience -- they are competently wrapped into a new shiny package. If you have the original Afterlight, and found it useful, I recommend buying the upgrade for no more reason than as a tip to the developers for a job well done. If you never used the first version, I heartily recommend adding it to your post-photo session tool kit. And to developers going out of their way to slice their apps up into half a dozen in-app purchases or even worse, subscriptions, Afterlight 2 shows that there is a more respectable way to make a living.
Good
by 66thstmike on 2018/05/02 23:11
There’s so many photo editing apps you could fill an entire tablet with them. Afterlight 1& 2 are ones I keep and use regularly. They’re good but wouldn’t call them great. None of them are. All the apps I use have tons of features that overlap but each of them has that one or two special feature none of the others has. Or they have some great filters you just can’t cut out and add to one app to rule them all. Now that’s an app I’d love to have. One app that lets you use specific features from a bunch of different programs without having to get in and out of them. I also like they haven’t tried to make this program a subscription based. Who ever thought that is a good idea is fooling themselves. Who wants to pay $9.99 a month for ever? That’s $120 a year for an app you only use occasionally. They can screw off. I’ll keep supporting apps like afterlight who aren’t trying to get greedy.
Simple and Intuitive
by Keyur82 on 2018/12/18 19:23
It’s becoming my go to app for photo editing. It has plenty of profess features and it’s simple enough to use. I would have liked it even more if it had some kind of healing tool, but I fall back to touch retouch for that functionality, which is also an awesome photo editing app by the way. I use Enlight for some advanced double exposure features but for everyday photo editing no other apps I have used beats afterlight 2 so far. I highly recommend this app along with touch retouch for anyone who doesn’t want to spend hours in editing photos (although you can if that’s your thing.) these 2 apps together takes care of almost all the photo editing needs.
moving in the right direction
by jeriellen on 2019/02/14 17:27
I love afterlight and have been using it to edit photos for years. I recently upgraded to afterlight 2. All of the fine tuning tools are great and in my opinion, now rival any of the major editing apps there are to choose from. But as a long time user of afterlight, I found that a lot of the legacy filters that I’ve been using to give my photos their quintessential look for years are different in the new edition. Why even include them if they aren’t the same? I’ve been processing photos between multiple apps for years which completely ruins the file integrity, and I really thought this would be the solution, yet even still I’m going back to the original afterlight for my final filtering.
My Ride or Die Photo Editing App
by missteallouise on 2018/03/03 16:49
I started using the first Afterlight several years ago, and never used anything else until their newest launch of Afterlight 2 came out. What I love about this app is that it allows me to create a seamless color theme on my Instagram, but beyond that, the pre curated filters are so stinking beautiful. They don’t look overdone and they don’t minimize the quality of the photo. They add the perfect artsy flair. I also love all the new effects added to this app, and the fact that it’s a one time purchase. They keep adding more cool effects and i don’t have to continually purchase them as they’re released. I recommend this app to literally everyone. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Freaking amazing.
by JosieAthens on 2018/10/02 09:26
I had the original Afterlight for a month or so and used it along-side VSCO until I deleted Afterlight cause I didn’t like it. I finally decided to buy the new one to see what it is all about. I highly, and I mean HIGHLY recommend this app. I just got it today and I’m obsessed. The new features are amazing, and THE FILTERS. I have so many themes I want to do for my Instagram now. I can’t express how much I love this app. I absolutely love all the tools and especially the Selective Saturation, game changer. I went back and edited some of my old photos and they look litterally 110% better. Again, as you can tell, HIGHLY recommend this, worth every penny and more.
Still the best photo-edit app out there
by Opinionated Millennial on 2018/07/25 15:47
I have the iPhone 6S (model A1688), and in recent weeks I’ve been experiencing more crashes while using the app. Typically when I’m toying with the “gradient”, and “color overlay” filters. Aside from that minor inconvenience, the first Afterlight was great, this new Afterlight 2 is amazing, nearing perfect. Two years ago I had 5 photo editing apps, but because of Afterlight 2’s new features, it’s rendered three of those apps useless. The ONLY thing keeping me from deleting my second photo-edit app is it’s “focus/tilt-shift” tool, and it’s “blur” tool. That would be the only thing I could possibly imagine you doing to improve this incredible app!
I’ve been using Afterlight for years, and I’m disappointed that this new version is still slow.
by Jocelynkathleen (: on 2018/01/19 03:10
I love Afterlight. I really do. Its been one of my primary iPhone photo editing apps for years, mainly for the filters. I really love the color overlay in this new version, as well as all the new filters. They’re awesome! What I’m disappointed in, is that Afterlight (1) always tended to be on the slower side. Not just compared to other photo editing apps, but even compared to other apps in general. I was really hoping that would change with this app. But saving photos causes it to freeze, picking filters sometimes makes it freeze. It’s not close to the end of the world, but it is frustrating. You guys rock. I’ve been Afterlighting for years and I’m going to stick with it
Very misleading self title “the best all in one photo editing app”
by VinceKJax on 2018/06/24 19:24
I am a photo/videographer who had the original afterlight, VSCO, then Enlight then Polarr... but I needed something new. Intuitive, powerful & efficient so I eagerly(unfortunately) purchased AfterLight 2. - The tools except the selective color are not efficient & the way this app makes the shadows get very milky has me pulling out hair. The sliders are way too small, sticker have no automatic leveling & the fade isnt much of a fade but more of a dehaze. - I want to create my own filter, theres no erase tool & just overall limiting. - Compared to Polarr which edits my photo in the album with no import - Compared to Enlight allows you to erase anything on your art, true double exposure - VSCO & AfterLight 1 were nice fast tools. I was excited when i initially made the purchase however TWO days later I’m spending time not editing family photos, SEARCHING for my $3 refund. It is that serious. I’m not one to judge without advice but I’m also not a developer just another unhappy creator sick of limiting tools when this knowledge is open. Apple needs to be honest when showing us these apps & review themselves because I’m tired of getting conned. Thanks for pulling a fast one for $3 lol.
Eh.
by Whoatheredoll on 2018/03/18 17:04
I used Afterlight for years and every time I got a new phone I made sure I downloaded it. I loved it. Then I get on my phone and realize the app is not there anymore, and then... bam In the App Store there’s a new afterlight. I’m like “cool, ok. It’s 3 dollars, uh ok, but it’s most definitely probably worth it.” I buy it. I open it up to edit my picture, and everything is different. I’m trying to find my favorite filter and I just can’t. So I try to find something similar and I just stick with that. I’m actually disappointed. I feel what was so easy to maneuver through has now become so much more complex. I hope I can eventually learn to love it as I did the original, but for now I’ll be looking for new photo editing apps.
Smooth operator
by -singthebody on 2017/11/03 04:26
Love the new app! Well worth the few dollars to have access to all the editing options that I have typically had to use 3 to 4 different apps for in the past! I know people get cranky about paying for apps but seriously, it's the cost of a cup of coffee these days, right? But you only have to buy it once! Other apps have countless in app purchases and this is a one time deal, you pay all up front and then you have it all! Well done, Afterlight! Loving the filters and the work done on the shadows within filtered pics. Looks great, user friendly, couldn't be happier with it!
Almost there
by thatrandomsam95 on 2017/11/20 13:15
So, in terms of the UX and the app's overall design, this version is a lot better than version 1, it's even better than a lot of other more established apps (Snapseed, etc.) but where it falls short is in features. One, where all the framing options from the first edition? They were half the reason I used the app. And two, why are there no lensflare effects or anything of the sort? I realise to some people those both may seem like old-fashioned features, but please include them as a lot of people still make use of them. Otherwise this is a great app that I look forward to seeing get even better over time. :)
Rip-off
by Jewels10167 on 2019/01/03 01:57
This app isn’t like any of the images you see. It’s all fake, and you won’t achieve that. Yes, you can brighten images up and darken them, but only to the whole image. You can’t do that cool photo of the girls hair on a phone, it’s not even an option. I watched a video from 2014 and it had it then, but not the type you think. You would have to edit the whole photo or retake it to fit and it could take up to 5 hours doing it. There is no blending option or blur tool so you can’t even do that, but if there was again it’s only for the whole image and not parts of it. There are good parts about this app but not many, and unless this app upgrades itself then I do not recommend it.
Stick with Afterlight 1
by therocket_man on 2018/03/09 17:29
As another reviewer stated, there’s really no reason to get this if you have the original. I bought this partly in protest of VSCO’s walling in of new features to their annual fee. However, I quickly realized this app is largely a reskin of Afterlight 1. Notably, frames/borders are missing altogether; this was a feature I used frequently in Afterlight 1. Further, the quality of filters is noticeably poorer than VSCO in my option. Here, they appear artificial. I also found it difficult and unintuitive to try and create my own to save and use for future use. Overall, I’d say VSCO>Afterlight 1>Afterlight 2. At the very least, all of Afterlight 1’s features should be included here. I hope my money might go to such additions.
Enjoying every second
by Fabiano1346 on 2018/09/29 16:08
I’ve been using the first Afterlight, and I liked it, and used it 80-90% of the time for photo edits. When I herd Afterlight 2 came out, I was hesitant on the getting because I was thinking that it’s going to be the exact same, with barely to little changes. Then I looked into detail, and went with it; I’ve been using this app for 3days straight for my photo edits, and I can tell you this, I’ve been happy, and the reviews about it, have been positive. I enjoy the add-ons, and it’s been by far the best.
O, Captain! My Captain!
by echosan on 2018/06/15 02:53
After using the original Afterlight for years, I upgraded to Afterlight 2 without a second thought. And it was absolutely better in every way. Except one. The filters. Nothing against the filters in Afterlight 2. They’re fine. But where were the familiar filters I’d been using for two years? Where was coral? Where was Bright Fire? Where was ... Captain?? I spent weeks trying to emulate those filters in the new Fusion, eventually settling on my own poor approximations. I even named one of my Fusion filters “Cap’n” to try and capture some of its magic. But it wasn’t the real thing. Photos of my kids with Cap’n just didn’t have the same rosy glow they did with the real Captain. But now. FINALLY! I’ve got Captain back. My kids’ pictures have that wonderful, magical glow again. Welcome back, Coral. Good to see you, Bright Fire! All is right with the world. Thanks, Afterlight team.
A Noticeable Upgrade + Most Robust Photo Editing App
by Kaitmichele on 2018/09/17 18:01
Some reviewers mentioned that the only difference from Afterlight 1 is a couple new filters — not the case! The filters may be mostly the same, but the control of the photo editing experience is vastly improved. You can now manually set your curves, view/rollback your history like layers, use blending modes on color and gradient fills, and more photoshop-like stuff. Far and away the most powerful photo editor on mobile — at least among those that have quality UIs.
Shuts me out
by foster223 on 2018/07/12 23:52
The app is great and amazing, wonderful for beginner photographers however my only two cons is that I’ll be near the end of editing and the app will shut me out and then I have to restart all over again so I tend to save my photos every once and a while to make sure that it will be saved and when you click on a tool, for instance the grain tool, it will take forever for it to load and then to save it it takes a while also, I still use it for all of my photos I take, would recommend unless these two things might annoy you or if you need to like do a really quick edit, I don’t think the tools taking forever to load will amuse you
3 years of use
by Sam Rodeghier on 2018/09/18 17:36
I’ve been using Afterlight 1 for 3 years now, just purchased Afterlight 2 last night. While not a mind blowing update, Afterlight 2 is certainly much more streamlined and easy to use. New features like selective saturation really allow me to draw attention to specific parts of an image without blowing out the whole thing. As always very impressed, very happy, and very worth the price tag. If you’re looking for photoshop designed for iPhone, you’ve come to the right place.
Confusing, but amazing editing platform
by makenziestratton on 2018/08/12 03:54
At the beginning on my time experimenting with my photography and “selfie culture” this was one of the first editing apps I tried. Opening it up I just saw loads of symbols most of them which are actually paid purchases! Frustrating yet determined to find a more simplistic photography enriching software, I deleted the app. Fast forward six months, my Instagram game is on point- gaining 1,040 followers. So after also seeing my other Instagram inspirations and favorite accounts, and how professionally they were editing their photos I had to dive deeper. I later stumbled upon Afterlight again and decided to attempt to learn the tools so I could achieve the light leak aesthetic look. After about a week of getting used to the controls and organizing, I paid for the full version (which turned out to be relatively inexpensive) which encouraged me to completely change my theme to one of more happiness and color. Definitely recommend! xx
Simply Perfect
by Modravoda on 2018/03/25 20:47
Just like the previous version Afterlight 2 is my go to tool for working on photos. I don’t even think about it. The feature set is perfect and the workflow effortless. It doesn’t make me think: when I want to modify a picture I don’t have to worry about what to do to make that happen; I can concentrate on the work. The tool stays out of my way. It seems like a simple thing, but that sort of simplicity I excruciatingly difficult to produce. I’d pay twice the price without blinking.
By far the best photo editing app I’ve used on the iPhone
by AmirH98 on 2018/10/24 03:41
This might be the most complete photo editing app available on the iPhone and it has an extremely gentle learning curve. A person who has never edited a picture in their life can pick this app up and create beautiful pictures. That being said, I have 2 VERY SMALL issues with it: 1. Finding specific albums is very difficult because iPhoto events are in the list of albums. I need to scroll through hundreds of iPhoto events to find the album I need. 2. Pictures aren’t automatically saved to an album. For example if I save a photo from AppExample it will go to the AppExample album automatically which makes finding it much easier. But these should be relatively easy fixes for the devs to implement. (I’m beggin’ ya, devs!) Overall, I highly recommend this app.
Amazing Photo Editing App
by Jackkelly48 on 2018/10/16 00:34
Afterlight 2.0 is fantastic!! I have used Adobe Lightroom CC for years. And to be honest, it is an exceptional app. BUT, I hate the subscription model. HATE IT. Then I discovered Afterlight. I bought version 1. Then came version 2. What an amazing improvement. Amazing! It works seamlessly with Photos. I can switch between the two, using the best features of each. Then end result is superb. And the final printed product is excellent. Why pay a monthly subscription when this 5 star is a mere $2.99.
Almost perfect!
by Janakakynrnf on 2018/12/30 06:19
The one greatest thing about the app is it’s one-time price. I was skeptical at first, but I played around and it’s as easy as using Lightroom on desktop. It’s fairly easy to use if you’re coming from other editing softwares. And RAW support is awesome! The only downside that I have is that there is no way to see HISTOGRAMS! I have looked everywhere for it and I don’t think it’s included (if it is, I’m sorry, please help me). Hopefully, histogram support will be at least considered in future updates. Everything else seems great!
Even Better Than The Original
by nmag89 on 2017/11/03 23:52
I have used Afterlight for YEARS so buying Afterlight 2 was a no-brainer. But there are so many great tweaks. Being able to edit colors selectively is one of the things I’ve loved the most so far. You can also add text to photos with a decent selection of fonts to choose from. I’ve already deleted two other apps that I used to use just for adding text to photos. This is now the only iPhone photo editing app I use. ✌️
Works Exceptionally and Feature Req.
by SlyDog123123 on 2018/05/03 08:08
Love the simplistic yet effective design, thumbs up to the developers. The one main improvement I could see would be at the end an option to modify the current photo rather than having to save it as a new photo. Snapseed has this if you need an example. It’s much nicer when you don’t have delete the old photo, especially when your only making slight changes. But overall, thanks for such a great app.
I can’t believe this exists
by emiy taber on 2018/07/25 15:05
I have been looking for an app literally just like this for years and I had settled for vsco but then suddenly stumbled upon this hand crafted piece of art formed by God himself. It gives you all of the features vsco allows plus ten billion more. And without having to pay for all of those filters. This is a one and done payment of so little and if you have even only one photo you’d like to edit, buy this app.
I prefer the first Afterlight app over this.
by Meg Igneel on 2019/01/21 01:19
I prefer the first Afterlight app over this second one because the first one is easier to navigate through AND the first one has white borders that you can put on a picture. I use the white borders to make my pictures fit into the Instagram square. I also recommended the first Afterlight app to my brother so that he can use it for his instagram pictures, too. I would only use this app if you can’t get the first Afterlight app. I have this second Afterlight on my Apple iPod because the first Afterlight app is not available in App Store sadly. If you guys put white borders into this app that would make it ten times better than it is now.
Amazing but,
by Kate Gearin on 2018/01/02 02:49
I have lived and died by Afterlight (the OG) and was wicked stoked when I saw they launched a 2. But they striped the new one of the filters I have become so conditioned to using for my artwork. I adore the time and attention the developers put into this new version. It represents a huge step forward and provides so much more control to the user. I only wish they had kept the same filters from the original. The “captain” filter is lined with my instagram and I would love to see it in 2 at some point. Thank you guys! 🙏🏻🌎☘️
Discovered via college peer
by kaaait on 2018/10/25 20:30
In my mediated textuality course we cover text, image, sound, and video production and this application was presented in a tool review discussed over image. I enjoyed the presentation and sample pieces provided by the presenter. I decided to make the purchase of only 2.99 and am not disappointed yet. The application never exits out, so many ways to edit or dabble with and overall I think it’s a great way to add unique and simple editing touches! I recommend this!
Almost, if not the best app for editing
by 10.26.2018 on 2019/02/03 21:09
It is definitely worth the few dollars, if you haven’t bought it already! I personally love the light leaks the most, and also the filters are diverse and perfectly designed. I consider it second only to Lightroom. Great app, frequent updates and features added. Sometimes it crashes with larger sized photos, but indeed an amazing application for photography!
Needs to show histogram
by ColdNeutron on 2018/10/06 04:57
The one thing this app really needs to do is show the histogram. This is the reason I can’t give this app 5 stars. It would also be great if you added a way to input exact numbers or made a sliders a bit less finicky. That being said, kudos for selling a complete app for a single payment, unlike pretty much all the others which sell you half an app then ask for more money for features or have some terrible subscription model.
I love this app but it has issues
by jennyz90 on 2019/01/21 07:49
I’ve been using After for as long as I can remember. My favorite editing app. There’s so much details one can add to create the best looking photos.. hence why I’m so annoyed.. I’ll be working on a photo for so long, then suddenly, the app crashes on me and I’ve lost all my hard work.. sometimes over an hours work. Not ideal for a photo editing app. I get so nervous editing now, that I’ll save it half way through just to insure that if it closes again (which it always does now when I use it) that at least I have it pre-saved. Well, to some extent. I think if the app is going to have this as an ongoing issue, maybe it would be wise and best to have a feature that automatically saves as you work. Sort of like when compiling an email or letter that keeps your work safe. Just helpful knowledge and suggestion.
Disappointed
by Meagan_Benensohn on 2018/07/26 16:05
I have had Afterlight 1 since it came out, and I absolutely loved it. I didn’t see a reason why the creators needed to replace it all together with this version. Because Afterlight 1 is no longer available in the App Store, I can no longer use the features that were my favorite: like the borders that looked like polaroids. If I can choose one thing to add to this version it would be that! Otherwise I will unfortunately be saying goodbye to this Afterlight. I don’t like the new light leaks (why not keep the old ones and just add new ones?), the layout, and the new filters. Please bring back some of the old options!!
Full featured without in app purchases and subscriptions
by super8000bees on 2018/03/02 14:23
This is a great photo editing app that doesn't bait and switch you. It has a strong set of tools and a solid UI Only suggestion: non-destructive crops. Sometimes I crop and then edit and decide to go back and change the crop. It seems like cropping needs to be the last step of your workflow because you can’t recover anything you cut out later.
Such a Great App!
by erica🧡 on 2018/10/05 04:40
When they say it’s an “all in one app” they really do mean it! It’s worth the money and I’ve been able to do so much with my photos since I got this app. The light leaks, the dust feature and being able to create my own filters has been such an amazing and fun experience. They’re constantly doing updates too! Its not doing anything, but getting better! Great work, Afterlight 😩
Really not impressed
by Avakin Life FANNN on 2018/04/11 00:41
So I paid 3 dollars for this app after ready the reviews and I was excepting it to be great but instead the app has crashed 3 times and my phone has started lagging. I also thought there was a way to change the color of the light leaks but unlike afterlight 1 there is not which is super disappointing. None of the filters are working either and the app all together is just laggy and glitchy. It seems like a great way to edit pictures but unfortunately for me it’s not working.
Consistently adding great features
by aliiien on 2018/03/06 15:11
I have to up my four-star review to a five because Afterlight’s devs really keep coming through. Enlight is still the app to beat, but I’m hopeful that, given the rate and quality of updates, Afterlight 2 will be my primary editing app in the near future. Fingers crossed, but until then, it’s still a stellar app that’s absolutely worth the few bucks they modestly ask.
Absolutely love love love!!!
by photogenic10 on 2018/08/24 19:49
I am a photographer and typically don’t like adjusting my photos with filters but that is what is in these days. This app is super easy to use and gives you the look of using film photography with the light leaks and grain specs. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone professional or not. It gives your images that extra ummmph they just need sometimes.
Updated review. Powerful editing
by David247 on 2017/12/19 14:17
My previous concern with the export size limit has been addressed and images can be exported as large as 6144x6144 pixels in size which is greater than 24 mp. Much more usable. It has a very large variety of tools that allow for just about every kind of enhancement or modification. Much better than before. Now if the would just arrange the tools in a more logical order or better yet allow users to arrange the tools and hide tools they don’t use, it would be great. Current tool arrangement is haphazard and random.
OG Afterlight user
by gmailuser13 on 2018/11/14 16:47
The original Afterlight has been my go-to for years. So at first, I was pretty upset about it finally disappearing, which forced me to buy this replacement when I got a new phone. After using it for the first time, though, I’m so impressed at the new features (and keeping of the old ones that I’m used to) that I have no buyer’s remorse. A great photo editing tool.
Where is the framing tool??
by Ezeaizen on 2018/04/02 06:30
Update my review: Thanks for give me an answer so fast. Now I see that the tool was there, sorry, we users were used to the old version, I still like more the place where the tool was before. And the shapes, I didn’t use them so much, but they were kind of cool, I would bring them back. __________________ The framing tool to ad border to the photos is missing, one of my favorite thing, now I have to find a new app
SO BUGGY FOR ME.
by VanessaMichelle666 on 2018/08/13 06:47
Afterlight is my favorite photo editing app to use. I love all the options and filters. However, for whatever reason, this app runs so incredibly slow for me. I have an iPhone 7+ so it’s not like it’s a super outdated model. It will constantly freeze and take insanely long to respond, frequently just crashing all together. I’ve deleted and reinstalled, still to no avail. I will continue to use as like I said, i love the editing options. But good god it runs like trying to open The Sims on a Windows 98 desktop computer.
Great app but slow
by Jeff Davenport on 2018/05/16 22:16
One of my favorite phone editing apps for ease of use, filter presets and simple framing. Design is great and a pleasure to use. That being said the app can be buggy, stall and freeze up on my iPhone X. The camera roll can take awhile to load and the confirmation modal always hangs after an export and its difficult to get a good flow going. Sometimes I just bail on it and it’s a bummer! Would to see performance improve.
Belatedly discovered an excellent tool!
by Stevearcher on 2018/05/27 13:35
Along with ECP's wonderful Lightbrush, plus Retouch and Pixelmator, Afterlight 2 is another great and inexpensive tool to perfect iPhone photos! While the other apps mentioned focus on adjusting specific areas of a picture, Afterlight 2 is a terrific global image editor. It kind of reminds me of the power of Photoforge 2, the now abandoned and obsolete editor. But this one has even more features!
I really like this app, but...
by jimmorrisongirl on 2018/12/30 08:28
I really the app but, for some odd reason when I want to put a photo from one my album, the one I have on my iPhone, it doesn't let me get the photo. I don't know why. I try deleting the app and getting it again. And I even try turning off my phone. But, it still doesn't really wanna work. I was wondering, could it be because I have and old iPhone. I have the iPhone 6.

Afterlight
by ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLIE on 2019/02/15 23:15
Been looking for a app like this forever it’s worth the money... completely changed my pictures and instagram feed
moving in the right direction
by jeriellen on 2019/02/14 17:27
I love afterlight and have been using it to edit photos for years. I recently upgraded to afterlight 2. All of the fine tuning tools are great and in my opinion, now rival any of the major editing apps there are to choose from. But as a long time user of afterlight, I found that a lot of the legacy filters that I’ve been using to give my photos their quintessential look for years are different in the new edition. Why even include them if they aren’t the same? I’ve been processing photos between multiple apps for years which completely ruins the file integrity, and I really thought this would be the solution, yet even still I’m going back to the original afterlight for my final filtering.
Best

Bestt
Great filters and effects, downgrades photos horribly.
by Cetchey on 2019/02/11 07:51
I’m absolutely loving the effects and filters but this app downgrades very high definition photos to an unusable level. I didn’t find this happening in my earlier use of the app...very strange! There’s no update available at the moment, so I’m not convinced the problem is on my end. Please look into fixing this staff, I know editing can downgrade any photo, but I shouldn’t be able to see pixels on a picture I took on a professional camera, especially for $3.
Love that for you
by stoooooooooooopotatis on 2019/02/11 00:47
This is a great app for editing pictures for Instagram or photo shoots.Also the filters and light editing for your face helps a lot to define small details on your face.10/10 recommend to anyone who wants a good photo editor:))
Best photo editing app
by Al-Hitmi on 2019/02/09 04:50
Best editing app in the App Store
5 star app
by BasicBlondie on 2019/02/08 23:02
At first, it’s a little hard to use, but you get used to it. I’ve been using this app for about 5 months and it hasn’t let me down since. 5 stars👍🏅🏅🏅
Great
by DoraSucks on 2019/02/07 12:23
Great editing app I feel like I won’t ever have to use another app to edit my photos since it has everything you need and it’s all free! But some more stickers would be even better!
Afterlight
by Dr Ijames on 2019/02/06 01:20
Only suggestion is maybe a way to shrink the overlay picture. Love the app and the ease of use
If you have afterlight1 don’t get this one
by Delium on 2019/02/05 18:09
there’s not too much that makes this worth the purchase if you already have afterlight original. Not sure why they didn’t just update the original.
Touch tools update
by bookstoregirl10 on 2019/02/05 14:06
I like the idea of the new touch tools, but can’t tell a difference after I use one. I tried them all on different photos and can’t see a difference. Maybe I’m doing it wrong. Maybe a little tutorial would help.
My new go-to pic app @ 4½ stars
by McSear on 2019/02/04 07:01
All the best features, EZ to use, and with the custom text options and ability to resize images: GR8! This app will replace my fav photo editor, Photog***⁴, which has not been updated for a long, long time and is now unreliable. #RECOMMENDED Solid w/ no crashes in 2 wks use iPhone 8 running iOS 11.4
Almost, if not the best app for editing
by 10.26.2018 on 2019/02/03 21:09
It is definitely worth the few dollars, if you haven’t bought it already! I personally love the light leaks the most, and also the filters are diverse and perfectly designed. I consider it second only to Lightroom. Great app, frequent updates and features added. Sometimes it crashes with larger sized photos, but indeed an amazing application for photography!
Best Editing app!
by Linduhhg on 2019/02/01 18:58
I used to use afterlight 1 but then switched to VSCO! I thought afterlight was gone but I was delighted to find the 2nd version! Just as great as the first. Loveeee it so much! I love that you can make your photos look super retro/vintage, & love the polaroid frames. Deff worth it!
Editing app
by Wizzardd420 on 2019/02/01 06:39
Such a great app for photo editing. So many different choice and features. Im a full time photographer and I suggest this app 100%
Cool

Cool new tools 👌
Mosaic tool.

Adding a mosaic tool would be really nice to shy people. ( ˙-˙ )

They actually charge you around $8 when you download it.
Excellent app!

The more I use this app the more I like it. It is intuitive and works advertised.
Unsatisfied
by ham luu on 2019/01/27 01:48
I love this app but currently, every time I open it, it crashes and closes. Truly hope you guys can fix this
Exquisite
by hunter_lk on 2019/01/24 05:23
This app allows the user to easily and creatively tansform images into works of art. I would recommend this to any user wanting to enhance images or give an image a specific mood.
So Fa So Good
by Drone 54 on 2019/01/23 09:57
I’ve got great editing apps, PS, Ai, Etc. I’ve got to admit, this little really cool, and not just fun, but productive. Still new to me
I love this app but it has issues
by jennyz90 on 2019/01/21 07:49
I’ve been using After for as long as I can remember. My favorite editing app. There’s so much details one can add to create the best looking photos.. hence why I’m so annoyed.. I’ll be working on a photo for so long, then suddenly, the app crashes on me and I’ve lost all my hard work.. sometimes over an hours work. Not ideal for a photo editing app. I get so nervous editing now, that I’ll save it half way through just to insure that if it closes again (which it always does now when I use it) that at least I have it pre-saved. Well, to some extent. I think if the app is going to have this as an ongoing issue, maybe it would be wise and best to have a feature that automatically saves as you work. Sort of like when compiling an email or letter that keeps your work safe. Just helpful knowledge and suggestion.
I prefer the first Afterlight app over this.
by Meg Igneel on 2019/01/21 01:19
I prefer the first Afterlight app over this second one because the first one is easier to navigate through AND the first one has white borders that you can put on a picture. I use the white borders to make my pictures fit into the Instagram square. I also recommended the first Afterlight app to my brother so that he can use it for his instagram pictures, too. I would only use this app if you can’t get the first Afterlight app. I have this second Afterlight on my Apple iPod because the first Afterlight app is not available in App Store sadly. If you guys put white borders into this app that would make it ten times better than it is now.
problem?!
by Aryan josha on 2019/01/20 08:40
Hey there, During edition ,the app suddenly close!and all of the editions destroys and i must again start it from the first point!!whats the problem?
how do I get a refund?
by alexxh15 on 2019/01/19 19:08
It looks like a great app but it’s not what I wanted to purchase and not exactly what I was looking for.
Wasn’t happy about paying again but okay i guess...
by Christianvdlt on 2019/01/18 19:44
After already using the first app the second one was of great quality as expected but like I said I didn’t find it fair that I had to pay again for the same product with some new additions.
Fantastic App!!!!
by Snergio4Ever on 2019/01/16 19:07
This is truly one of my favorite ways to enhance my photos!
So far so good.
by Egg baby lover 10935 on 2019/01/15 19:49
I have just started playing around with it and it has been extremely easy to navigate. This is my first time paying for a app like this and I am not disappointed..... so far :)
Artifact is saved pictures
by Pattypuppet on 2019/01/12 17:17
When I save pictures there are light horizontal bands in them. These bands are not in the original picture or when I save using other photo editing apps. I wish I could upload a pic to demonstrate. If I could get this resolved I would rate the app much higher.
Just missing one key feature
by 7749377492 on 2019/01/11 22:47
I love this app. Super clean and versatile. Add a spot healing tool and it will literally be perfect.
In Love
by Naturally Lazy College Student on 2019/01/11 20:49
Was tired of VSCO.... and this app literally made it fun to take pics again. The way you can use it to capture the lighting your eyes see, sets it apart from many other photo editors! I love how you can selectively adjust different features and the navigation is relatively simple and clean!
Where is Afterlight 1 ?
by jelena.marija on 2019/01/10 03:00
I love afterlight, but I got very upset when my app all of a sudden wasn’t working anymore so everything I could do was delete it and reinstall. Then I had to find out that the app I used to have no longer exists and that the new app is missing some of the filters, especially for the dust effect. Also I used to be able to flip the dust layer, not just to rotate it. I want the old app back 😭
I do love this app... does have glitch
by Gypsyavalon on 2019/01/07 21:49
Hi ! This is one of my favorite photo editing apps. The only issue is that when you go to albums it freezes and it doesn’t open . Also when it does randomly open it doesn’t access all the albums just the main one. Hopefully this will be resolved because I love this app. Thank You!
Still best editing app but buggy as unusable
by MANIACARAM on 2019/01/06 17:54
Less than 1 yr old iPhone 8 clean iOS and it keeps crashing and screen goes black. 1 much better. This is unacceptable for a PAID app. Money black please.
not worth the money
by Puppy love_2167 on 2019/01/06 02:51
Snapseed is way better, and it is free. This app is lame, and the filters are cheesy.
BEST PHOTO EDITOR EVER

Love this app! Downloaded it based on YouTube clips on photo editing and it’s worked great. My pics are taken to the next level using these Afterlight features, definitely does not disappoint.

I actually like this app i bought it because i had some money on my wallet and i wanted a photo editing app but nowadays i would like an app to change the focus like the iphone 7-8 plus and x cameras do but i dont want to buy another app so why dont you guys add it?
Rip-off
by Jewels10167 on 2019/01/03 01:57
This app isn’t like any of the images you see. It’s all fake, and you won’t achieve that. Yes, you can brighten images up and darken them, but only to the whole image. You can’t do that cool photo of the girls hair on a phone, it’s not even an option. I watched a video from 2014 and it had it then, but not the type you think. You would have to edit the whole photo or retake it to fit and it could take up to 5 hours doing it. There is no blending option or blur tool so you can’t even do that, but if there was again it’s only for the whole image and not parts of it. There are good parts about this app but not many, and unless this app upgrades itself then I do not recommend it.
great
by Nainai_Forevs on 2019/01/02 05:20

by ameliareign on 2018/12/30 18:05
My favorite filters are the contract scrolled all the way to the left. (to make it look old fashion)and the dust effects.

Almost perfect!
by Janakakynrnf on 2018/12/30 06:19
The one greatest thing about the app is it’s one-time price. I was skeptical at first, but I played around and it’s as easy as using Lightroom on desktop. It’s fairly easy to use if you’re coming from other editing softwares. And RAW support is awesome! The only downside that I have is that there is no way to see HISTOGRAMS! I have looked everywhere for it and I don’t think it’s included (if it is, I’m sorry, please help me). Hopefully, histogram support will be at least considered in future updates. Everything else seems great!
AMAZING APP
by Atlas Photography on 2018/12/29 15:27
the app is so cool you can make one photo tell a completely different story than the original and it jut has so many amazing features, filters, and packs. best editor i’ve ever used. 10/10
Amazing!!
by StephHillner on 2018/12/29 10:07
I have used the original Afterlight for quite a number of years and it’s always been one of my top apps for editing. All I have to say is WOW!! A2 is unbelievable! I am SO glad I bought this app and gave it a shot because it’s so awesome. Just 3-5 minutes of playing around with it proved that it’s far superior to its first edition. Excellent app!! Bravo! Happy customer here :D
Perfect
by popcornJob on 2018/12/27 18:33
I love everything about it, it's not laggy, no adds, & it does not crash! I recommend this app :3
Great Photo Edit App
by lwmc45 on 2018/12/26 00:16
I love this app because I can make it appear lighter when it wasn’t. It was worth the money. And the best app to edit photo’s that I have used. I recommend it definitely. Of course there are a lot more features than that, but that is one of my favorite.
best app

Crash. Crash. Crash.
by Cmander8 on 2018/12/20 04:11
I just bought this app, and every single time I attempt to edit a photo, BOOM, the apps goes black and crashes. I’ve been attempting this for nearly an hour. Deleted the app then reinstalled it several times, issue still occurs.
I love it, but borders...
by Casey3560 on 2018/12/19 17:53
Honestly this app is super great and I love all of the new features added! One thing that I hope you can add back from Afterlight 1 are the borders. I use them for every photo and I don’t want to have to switch between each app just to add the border to it, you know? Hopefully you see this and consider adding them back. Thanks!
Simple and Intuitive
by Keyur82 on 2018/12/18 19:23
It’s becoming my go to app for photo editing. It has plenty of profess features and it’s simple enough to use. I would have liked it even more if it had some kind of healing tool, but I fall back to touch retouch for that functionality, which is also an awesome photo editing app by the way. I use Enlight for some advanced double exposure features but for everyday photo editing no other apps I have used beats afterlight 2 so far. I highly recommend this app along with touch retouch for anyone who doesn’t want to spend hours in editing photos (although you can if that’s your thing.) these 2 apps together takes care of almost all the photo editing needs.
Easy to Use
by Ms G Martin on 2018/12/18 03:06

CRASHES AFTER TWO EDITS

Whenever I edit an image from the Photos app with Afterlight, the app crashes every so often.
kinda like vsco but more features
by emilee marie:) on 2018/12/10 18:44
idk how much vsco costs for the “vip” but this was only like $3 and it’s great!! i like to use both apps to edit my pictures to go with my theme for instagram :))
Nobody’s perfect
by MaryElizaHall on 2018/12/10 14:51
It’s really annoying that I had to purchase afterlight twice. Also it crashes after two edits when I use it within iPhone photos app. But I still like it.
Truly the best
by Wesgeo on 2018/12/09 23:01
I’ve been reading about this app for about six months now so decided to purchase. I have snap seed adobe photoshop express and even ProCamera filters and each has their limitations. This app pleasantly has all the features I want. So. I’m happy I pulled the trigger

by aggrizzle on 2018/12/07 19:28
I can’t believe how much there is that you can do with your photos on here! I can spend hours editing the same picture just in different ways 😂 this app is absolutely worth the 3 dollars!
I love it
by DanielleCohnisaHœ on 2018/12/07 00:59
I been trying to find the best editor app for photos and i could find one that had a lot of features in it. The app was way more than I expected i seriously love it!!!! Worth your money 100% is amazing. GOOD BYE VSCO!!
feedback
by lau milo on 2018/12/04 21:16
I used to be a devoted afterlight user but ever since the last 3 updates the app seems to crash a lot. I love the new filters, but some old filters seem to have downgraded for whatever reason? the filter cascade isn’t the same tone it used to be, it looks like a weird yellow overlay. it’s also quite difficult to find the filters I’m looking for now, feels like the filters are all over the place. I must say I miss afterlight 1 and how simple it was, it shouldn’t have been removed.
Great app
by Camslemens11345 on 2018/11/28 02:53
Lots of different things to add to your pictures.
Get the app
by jbird707070 on 2018/11/27 23:59
I just got the app today and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun way to change photos and learn more with photography!!!
I want the original back
by 13389 on 2018/11/26 10:40
I like the original Afterlight and deleted it from my phone because I thought this one would be better but it’s not. It doesn’t have all the features the original did. Not impressed and now I’m sad I can’t get the other one back.
Crashes
by ketomomtog on 2018/11/25 22:11
Keeps crashing when I try to save the image. Pretty frustrating. Not an expensive app but still an app I paid for but can’t use.
It’s pretty good.
by AngSedg on 2018/11/22 20:53
It’s easy to use. I like it.
recommend!

Great app for editing photos.
Cool
by yemji on 2018/11/17 23:33
It’s very good for trying to controlling the tone of the picture, it’s make the picture looks cool from the regular picture to the best picture by fix the picture and bring-out more attention in the picture. I would recommend this app that you won’t regret. But keep going to make the app greater and greater. 👍🏻Like.

The original Afterlight has been my go-to for years. So at first, I was pretty upset about it finally disappearing, which forced me to buy this replacement when I got a new phone. After using it for the first time, though, I’m so impressed at the new features (and keeping of the old ones that I’m used to) that I have no buyer’s remorse. A great photo editing tool.
Keeps crashing on my iPhone 6
by Arash.sh on 2018/11/12 13:53
I really enjoyed the features of this app and I was looking forward to start using it for all my photos but strangely after some few touches the app crashes... everything I’ve done on the photo is gone and I should start over and over so maybe I can get it done. I hope this issue will be fixed in the next update cuz I’m really counting on Afterlight.
worth it
by Im out here running on 2018/11/12 01:46
awesome app!!! i love the dust and grain effects the most, they can create a more vintage feel to whatever you shoot.
Excellent
by phobophage on 2018/11/10 05:13
I'm very new to photo editing, and picked this up along with a few others. Overall I've had an excellent time with it. Apart from a few crashes here and there (I'm still using the 5s..) it's extremely solid and very user friendly. Great for a noob like me.
Brutal

Lo máximo i loved
Love it!
by Livinsodivine93 on 2018/11/08 00:49
I have been using this app for a year or so now and I am IN LOVE WITH IT. It is the perfect mobile app to edit all of my iPhone photos. I have my favorite filters but I always like to change it up too. I use this app to edit my screenshots I take for my fan account and I get a lot of compliments on my editing. Huge fan and I’ve tried tons of photography apps.
Instant flim pack please
by VitaminaSue on 2018/11/07 12:16
Could you please put instant film pack into Afterlight 2 as well, for people whose country location does not offer Afterlight 1 ?!?!?! I bought this app just for the Instant Film but realized It doesnt provide it... really let down.
Filters Freeze the App
by Alarz on 2018/11/06 17:40
When editing in Afterlight through the Apple Photo App, the image often goes black and I have to reset the app, losing all progress.
A learning curve but worth it
by Salima03 on 2018/11/05 21:02
I really love this app. It has a lot of features so it takes a while to remember where everything is, but the offerings are perfect for sprucing things up on the go. I highly recommend
annoying
by Ha Hong ✅ on 2018/11/03 22:42
it has some of the features that are super aesthetic and nice but - cant save presets like in VSCO or lightroom and you have to “record” a set which i do not like, id rather have a button that knows the filters that i placed instead of recording from the top - it keeps turning the screen black and crashing!
5 star
by Iwumbo12 on 2018/11/03 00:32
Great app with tons of variety and quality editing
Got Rid or Effects for Rounding Corners
by patalina787 on 2018/11/01 17:41
I updated from the original and am so upset that I did. In the original you could edit the cropping of photos so that the edges were rounded, but the new version got rid of this option. It’s also not great for making your own filters and edits like the original was. Wish I had known before or I wouldn’t have updated.
Layers Epic Feature for Me
by Anonymous8081 on 2018/11/01 11:21
Wish I could scale/resize layers but just being able to do layers on my phone is awesome as it is cant complain or give 5 stars :/
Some feedback
by photographersteven on 2018/10/30 00:50
I’ve been using afterlight for quite a while, it is definitely my #1 app that I use for editing. I love it so much so that I actually gifted my mom this app as well so she can have a simple, yet amazing app to edit her photos with. It is super easy to navigate! But there are a few things that I think the developers should put into consideration… When using the app from the photos app on iPhone… It sometimes turns black, the photo disappears and it is starting to get a tad bit annoying at this point… I am unsure if this is just me or what, but if someone from the Afterlight Dev team sees this, I need you to try to do this… Go to the photos app, choose a photo, press “edit” on the top right of the photo, press the three dots (...) that is just left of the red “revert” button. If afterlight isn’t showing on the tab that popped up, then go to “more” on the very right, then toggle afterlight “on” , then press done, open afterlight from the photos app (don't go to the actual afterlight app), then try editing, mess around with different tools and see if the picture you’re editing randomly turns black or disappears, and if it does then can you guys please issue a fix for it? Either that or make it to where I can modify the original photo from the afterlight app so i don't have a duplicate.
Initial thoughts
by Ahh Chet! on 2017/11/02 21:58
After using the 1st Afterlight app for a few years I couldn’t wait to get the newest creation. I absolutely loved the 1st Afterlight, using it over any other photo editing apps. That being said, the newest version of Afterlight is very much the same except for the new “Fusion” and “Double exposure” features. While the features are nice and provide an additional touch to your editing they aren’t enough for me to justify the cost to get this newer version of Afterlight. In my opinion, if you already have the 1st version of Afterlight then you don’t have a need for Afterlight 2. Afterlight 2 does have an updated look and layout which is extremely appealing and easy to use. Overall it is the same app minus a few newly added features, which I feel shouldn’t have been a qualification for a new app and should have been an update to the original Afterlight. FINAL THOUGHTS, I am an avid user of photo editing applications so I would absolutely purchase Afterlight 2 again due to the overall experience and quality of the app. Afterlight is in my opinion the best photo editing application available for your smart devices!
Forever Afterlight
by Cvstles on 2017/11/12 21:50
I have used various photo editing applications including VSCO, MuseCam, Darkroom, and Mextures and Afterlight is the only one that has kept me coming back. I have used Afterlight for years, ever since it’s initial release and have purchased every single in-app filter pack available, including the borders and other effects in the first application. When I found out about Afterlights successor application release, I immediately purchased it and did not regret it. I also adore the fact that the developers made it clear that once you purchase the second, there are no more in-app purchases thereafter. Even if there were, I’d be the first to buy them. The application is quality, and the filters are good. I work as a professional digital artist and would love to create a set of filters for Afterlight. I’ve tried contacting the devs via email and Twitter to no avail. Oh well, I still admire the application and the hard work put into it. This will always be my #1 go to application.
Breath of fresh air
by DavidFoster on 2017/11/04 13:10
Finally a developer recognizes that they can provide a revenue stream the old fashioned way - by building in new features and capabilities BEFORE reaching into their customers' pockets. The new Afterlight isn't a breakthrough product, but it assembles features that might otherwise require several separate apps. And it isn't just that convenience -- they are competently wrapped into a new shiny package. If you have the original Afterlight, and found it useful, I recommend buying the upgrade for no more reason than as a tip to the developers for a job well done. If you never used the first version, I heartily recommend adding it to your post-photo session tool kit. And to developers going out of their way to slice their apps up into half a dozen in-app purchases or even worse, subscriptions, Afterlight 2 shows that there is a more respectable way to make a living.
Good
by 66thstmike on 2018/05/02 23:11
There’s so many photo editing apps you could fill an entire tablet with them. Afterlight 1& 2 are ones I keep and use regularly. They’re good but wouldn’t call them great. None of them are. All the apps I use have tons of features that overlap but each of them has that one or two special feature none of the others has. Or they have some great filters you just can’t cut out and add to one app to rule them all. Now that’s an app I’d love to have. One app that lets you use specific features from a bunch of different programs without having to get in and out of them. I also like they haven’t tried to make this program a subscription based. Who ever thought that is a good idea is fooling themselves. Who wants to pay $9.99 a month for ever? That’s $120 a year for an app you only use occasionally. They can screw off. I’ll keep supporting apps like afterlight who aren’t trying to get greedy.
Simple and Intuitive
by Keyur82 on 2018/12/18 19:23
It’s becoming my go to app for photo editing. It has plenty of profess features and it’s simple enough to use. I would have liked it even more if it had some kind of healing tool, but I fall back to touch retouch for that functionality, which is also an awesome photo editing app by the way. I use Enlight for some advanced double exposure features but for everyday photo editing no other apps I have used beats afterlight 2 so far. I highly recommend this app along with touch retouch for anyone who doesn’t want to spend hours in editing photos (although you can if that’s your thing.) these 2 apps together takes care of almost all the photo editing needs.
moving in the right direction
by jeriellen on 2019/02/14 17:27
I love afterlight and have been using it to edit photos for years. I recently upgraded to afterlight 2. All of the fine tuning tools are great and in my opinion, now rival any of the major editing apps there are to choose from. But as a long time user of afterlight, I found that a lot of the legacy filters that I’ve been using to give my photos their quintessential look for years are different in the new edition. Why even include them if they aren’t the same? I’ve been processing photos between multiple apps for years which completely ruins the file integrity, and I really thought this would be the solution, yet even still I’m going back to the original afterlight for my final filtering.
My Ride or Die Photo Editing App
by missteallouise on 2018/03/03 16:49
I started using the first Afterlight several years ago, and never used anything else until their newest launch of Afterlight 2 came out. What I love about this app is that it allows me to create a seamless color theme on my Instagram, but beyond that, the pre curated filters are so stinking beautiful. They don’t look overdone and they don’t minimize the quality of the photo. They add the perfect artsy flair. I also love all the new effects added to this app, and the fact that it’s a one time purchase. They keep adding more cool effects and i don’t have to continually purchase them as they’re released. I recommend this app to literally everyone. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Freaking amazing.
by JosieAthens on 2018/10/02 09:26
I had the original Afterlight for a month or so and used it along-side VSCO until I deleted Afterlight cause I didn’t like it. I finally decided to buy the new one to see what it is all about. I highly, and I mean HIGHLY recommend this app. I just got it today and I’m obsessed. The new features are amazing, and THE FILTERS. I have so many themes I want to do for my Instagram now. I can’t express how much I love this app. I absolutely love all the tools and especially the Selective Saturation, game changer. I went back and edited some of my old photos and they look litterally 110% better. Again, as you can tell, HIGHLY recommend this, worth every penny and more.
Still the best photo-edit app out there
by Opinionated Millennial on 2018/07/25 15:47
I have the iPhone 6S (model A1688), and in recent weeks I’ve been experiencing more crashes while using the app. Typically when I’m toying with the “gradient”, and “color overlay” filters. Aside from that minor inconvenience, the first Afterlight was great, this new Afterlight 2 is amazing, nearing perfect. Two years ago I had 5 photo editing apps, but because of Afterlight 2’s new features, it’s rendered three of those apps useless. The ONLY thing keeping me from deleting my second photo-edit app is it’s “focus/tilt-shift” tool, and it’s “blur” tool. That would be the only thing I could possibly imagine you doing to improve this incredible app!
I’ve been using Afterlight for years, and I’m disappointed that this new version is still slow.
by Jocelynkathleen (: on 2018/01/19 03:10
I love Afterlight. I really do. Its been one of my primary iPhone photo editing apps for years, mainly for the filters. I really love the color overlay in this new version, as well as all the new filters. They’re awesome! What I’m disappointed in, is that Afterlight (1) always tended to be on the slower side. Not just compared to other photo editing apps, but even compared to other apps in general. I was really hoping that would change with this app. But saving photos causes it to freeze, picking filters sometimes makes it freeze. It’s not close to the end of the world, but it is frustrating. You guys rock. I’ve been Afterlighting for years and I’m going to stick with it
Very misleading self title “the best all in one photo editing app”
by VinceKJax on 2018/06/24 19:24
I am a photo/videographer who had the original afterlight, VSCO, then Enlight then Polarr... but I needed something new. Intuitive, powerful & efficient so I eagerly(unfortunately) purchased AfterLight 2. - The tools except the selective color are not efficient & the way this app makes the shadows get very milky has me pulling out hair. The sliders are way too small, sticker have no automatic leveling & the fade isnt much of a fade but more of a dehaze. - I want to create my own filter, theres no erase tool & just overall limiting. - Compared to Polarr which edits my photo in the album with no import - Compared to Enlight allows you to erase anything on your art, true double exposure - VSCO & AfterLight 1 were nice fast tools. I was excited when i initially made the purchase however TWO days later I’m spending time not editing family photos, SEARCHING for my $3 refund. It is that serious. I’m not one to judge without advice but I’m also not a developer just another unhappy creator sick of limiting tools when this knowledge is open. Apple needs to be honest when showing us these apps & review themselves because I’m tired of getting conned. Thanks for pulling a fast one for $3 lol.
Eh.
by Whoatheredoll on 2018/03/18 17:04
I used Afterlight for years and every time I got a new phone I made sure I downloaded it. I loved it. Then I get on my phone and realize the app is not there anymore, and then... bam In the App Store there’s a new afterlight. I’m like “cool, ok. It’s 3 dollars, uh ok, but it’s most definitely probably worth it.” I buy it. I open it up to edit my picture, and everything is different. I’m trying to find my favorite filter and I just can’t. So I try to find something similar and I just stick with that. I’m actually disappointed. I feel what was so easy to maneuver through has now become so much more complex. I hope I can eventually learn to love it as I did the original, but for now I’ll be looking for new photo editing apps.
Smooth operator
by -singthebody on 2017/11/03 04:26
Love the new app! Well worth the few dollars to have access to all the editing options that I have typically had to use 3 to 4 different apps for in the past! I know people get cranky about paying for apps but seriously, it's the cost of a cup of coffee these days, right? But you only have to buy it once! Other apps have countless in app purchases and this is a one time deal, you pay all up front and then you have it all! Well done, Afterlight! Loving the filters and the work done on the shadows within filtered pics. Looks great, user friendly, couldn't be happier with it!
Almost there
by thatrandomsam95 on 2017/11/20 13:15
So, in terms of the UX and the app's overall design, this version is a lot better than version 1, it's even better than a lot of other more established apps (Snapseed, etc.) but where it falls short is in features. One, where all the framing options from the first edition? They were half the reason I used the app. And two, why are there no lensflare effects or anything of the sort? I realise to some people those both may seem like old-fashioned features, but please include them as a lot of people still make use of them. Otherwise this is a great app that I look forward to seeing get even better over time. :)
Rip-off
by Jewels10167 on 2019/01/03 01:57
This app isn’t like any of the images you see. It’s all fake, and you won’t achieve that. Yes, you can brighten images up and darken them, but only to the whole image. You can’t do that cool photo of the girls hair on a phone, it’s not even an option. I watched a video from 2014 and it had it then, but not the type you think. You would have to edit the whole photo or retake it to fit and it could take up to 5 hours doing it. There is no blending option or blur tool so you can’t even do that, but if there was again it’s only for the whole image and not parts of it. There are good parts about this app but not many, and unless this app upgrades itself then I do not recommend it.
Stick with Afterlight 1
by therocket_man on 2018/03/09 17:29
As another reviewer stated, there’s really no reason to get this if you have the original. I bought this partly in protest of VSCO’s walling in of new features to their annual fee. However, I quickly realized this app is largely a reskin of Afterlight 1. Notably, frames/borders are missing altogether; this was a feature I used frequently in Afterlight 1. Further, the quality of filters is noticeably poorer than VSCO in my option. Here, they appear artificial. I also found it difficult and unintuitive to try and create my own to save and use for future use. Overall, I’d say VSCO>Afterlight 1>Afterlight 2. At the very least, all of Afterlight 1’s features should be included here. I hope my money might go to such additions.
Enjoying every second
by Fabiano1346 on 2018/09/29 16:08
I’ve been using the first Afterlight, and I liked it, and used it 80-90% of the time for photo edits. When I herd Afterlight 2 came out, I was hesitant on the getting because I was thinking that it’s going to be the exact same, with barely to little changes. Then I looked into detail, and went with it; I’ve been using this app for 3days straight for my photo edits, and I can tell you this, I’ve been happy, and the reviews about it, have been positive. I enjoy the add-ons, and it’s been by far the best.
O, Captain! My Captain!
by echosan on 2018/06/15 02:53
After using the original Afterlight for years, I upgraded to Afterlight 2 without a second thought. And it was absolutely better in every way. Except one. The filters. Nothing against the filters in Afterlight 2. They’re fine. But where were the familiar filters I’d been using for two years? Where was coral? Where was Bright Fire? Where was ... Captain?? I spent weeks trying to emulate those filters in the new Fusion, eventually settling on my own poor approximations. I even named one of my Fusion filters “Cap’n” to try and capture some of its magic. But it wasn’t the real thing. Photos of my kids with Cap’n just didn’t have the same rosy glow they did with the real Captain. But now. FINALLY! I’ve got Captain back. My kids’ pictures have that wonderful, magical glow again. Welcome back, Coral. Good to see you, Bright Fire! All is right with the world. Thanks, Afterlight team.
A Noticeable Upgrade + Most Robust Photo Editing App
by Kaitmichele on 2018/09/17 18:01
Some reviewers mentioned that the only difference from Afterlight 1 is a couple new filters — not the case! The filters may be mostly the same, but the control of the photo editing experience is vastly improved. You can now manually set your curves, view/rollback your history like layers, use blending modes on color and gradient fills, and more photoshop-like stuff. Far and away the most powerful photo editor on mobile — at least among those that have quality UIs.
Shuts me out
by foster223 on 2018/07/12 23:52
The app is great and amazing, wonderful for beginner photographers however my only two cons is that I’ll be near the end of editing and the app will shut me out and then I have to restart all over again so I tend to save my photos every once and a while to make sure that it will be saved and when you click on a tool, for instance the grain tool, it will take forever for it to load and then to save it it takes a while also, I still use it for all of my photos I take, would recommend unless these two things might annoy you or if you need to like do a really quick edit, I don’t think the tools taking forever to load will amuse you
3 years of use
by Sam Rodeghier on 2018/09/18 17:36
I’ve been using Afterlight 1 for 3 years now, just purchased Afterlight 2 last night. While not a mind blowing update, Afterlight 2 is certainly much more streamlined and easy to use. New features like selective saturation really allow me to draw attention to specific parts of an image without blowing out the whole thing. As always very impressed, very happy, and very worth the price tag. If you’re looking for photoshop designed for iPhone, you’ve come to the right place.
Confusing, but amazing editing platform
by makenziestratton on 2018/08/12 03:54
At the beginning on my time experimenting with my photography and “selfie culture” this was one of the first editing apps I tried. Opening it up I just saw loads of symbols most of them which are actually paid purchases! Frustrating yet determined to find a more simplistic photography enriching software, I deleted the app. Fast forward six months, my Instagram game is on point- gaining 1,040 followers. So after also seeing my other Instagram inspirations and favorite accounts, and how professionally they were editing their photos I had to dive deeper. I later stumbled upon Afterlight again and decided to attempt to learn the tools so I could achieve the light leak aesthetic look. After about a week of getting used to the controls and organizing, I paid for the full version (which turned out to be relatively inexpensive) which encouraged me to completely change my theme to one of more happiness and color. Definitely recommend! xx
Simply Perfect
by Modravoda on 2018/03/25 20:47
Just like the previous version Afterlight 2 is my go to tool for working on photos. I don’t even think about it. The feature set is perfect and the workflow effortless. It doesn’t make me think: when I want to modify a picture I don’t have to worry about what to do to make that happen; I can concentrate on the work. The tool stays out of my way. It seems like a simple thing, but that sort of simplicity I excruciatingly difficult to produce. I’d pay twice the price without blinking.
By far the best photo editing app I’ve used on the iPhone
by AmirH98 on 2018/10/24 03:41
This might be the most complete photo editing app available on the iPhone and it has an extremely gentle learning curve. A person who has never edited a picture in their life can pick this app up and create beautiful pictures. That being said, I have 2 VERY SMALL issues with it: 1. Finding specific albums is very difficult because iPhoto events are in the list of albums. I need to scroll through hundreds of iPhoto events to find the album I need. 2. Pictures aren’t automatically saved to an album. For example if I save a photo from AppExample it will go to the AppExample album automatically which makes finding it much easier. But these should be relatively easy fixes for the devs to implement. (I’m beggin’ ya, devs!) Overall, I highly recommend this app.
Amazing Photo Editing App
by Jackkelly48 on 2018/10/16 00:34
Afterlight 2.0 is fantastic!! I have used Adobe Lightroom CC for years. And to be honest, it is an exceptional app. BUT, I hate the subscription model. HATE IT. Then I discovered Afterlight. I bought version 1. Then came version 2. What an amazing improvement. Amazing! It works seamlessly with Photos. I can switch between the two, using the best features of each. Then end result is superb. And the final printed product is excellent. Why pay a monthly subscription when this 5 star is a mere $2.99.
Almost perfect!
by Janakakynrnf on 2018/12/30 06:19
The one greatest thing about the app is it’s one-time price. I was skeptical at first, but I played around and it’s as easy as using Lightroom on desktop. It’s fairly easy to use if you’re coming from other editing softwares. And RAW support is awesome! The only downside that I have is that there is no way to see HISTOGRAMS! I have looked everywhere for it and I don’t think it’s included (if it is, I’m sorry, please help me). Hopefully, histogram support will be at least considered in future updates. Everything else seems great!
Even Better Than The Original
by nmag89 on 2017/11/03 23:52
I have used Afterlight for YEARS so buying Afterlight 2 was a no-brainer. But there are so many great tweaks. Being able to edit colors selectively is one of the things I’ve loved the most so far. You can also add text to photos with a decent selection of fonts to choose from. I’ve already deleted two other apps that I used to use just for adding text to photos. This is now the only iPhone photo editing app I use. ✌️
Works Exceptionally and Feature Req.
by SlyDog123123 on 2018/05/03 08:08
Love the simplistic yet effective design, thumbs up to the developers. The one main improvement I could see would be at the end an option to modify the current photo rather than having to save it as a new photo. Snapseed has this if you need an example. It’s much nicer when you don’t have delete the old photo, especially when your only making slight changes. But overall, thanks for such a great app.
I can’t believe this exists
by emiy taber on 2018/07/25 15:05
I have been looking for an app literally just like this for years and I had settled for vsco but then suddenly stumbled upon this hand crafted piece of art formed by God himself. It gives you all of the features vsco allows plus ten billion more. And without having to pay for all of those filters. This is a one and done payment of so little and if you have even only one photo you’d like to edit, buy this app.
I prefer the first Afterlight app over this.
by Meg Igneel on 2019/01/21 01:19
I prefer the first Afterlight app over this second one because the first one is easier to navigate through AND the first one has white borders that you can put on a picture. I use the white borders to make my pictures fit into the Instagram square. I also recommended the first Afterlight app to my brother so that he can use it for his instagram pictures, too. I would only use this app if you can’t get the first Afterlight app. I have this second Afterlight on my Apple iPod because the first Afterlight app is not available in App Store sadly. If you guys put white borders into this app that would make it ten times better than it is now.
Amazing but,
by Kate Gearin on 2018/01/02 02:49
I have lived and died by Afterlight (the OG) and was wicked stoked when I saw they launched a 2. But they striped the new one of the filters I have become so conditioned to using for my artwork. I adore the time and attention the developers put into this new version. It represents a huge step forward and provides so much more control to the user. I only wish they had kept the same filters from the original. The “captain” filter is lined with my instagram and I would love to see it in 2 at some point. Thank you guys! 🙏🏻🌎☘️
Discovered via college peer
by kaaait on 2018/10/25 20:30
In my mediated textuality course we cover text, image, sound, and video production and this application was presented in a tool review discussed over image. I enjoyed the presentation and sample pieces provided by the presenter. I decided to make the purchase of only 2.99 and am not disappointed yet. The application never exits out, so many ways to edit or dabble with and overall I think it’s a great way to add unique and simple editing touches! I recommend this!
Almost, if not the best app for editing
by 10.26.2018 on 2019/02/03 21:09
It is definitely worth the few dollars, if you haven’t bought it already! I personally love the light leaks the most, and also the filters are diverse and perfectly designed. I consider it second only to Lightroom. Great app, frequent updates and features added. Sometimes it crashes with larger sized photos, but indeed an amazing application for photography!
Needs to show histogram
by ColdNeutron on 2018/10/06 04:57
The one thing this app really needs to do is show the histogram. This is the reason I can’t give this app 5 stars. It would also be great if you added a way to input exact numbers or made a sliders a bit less finicky. That being said, kudos for selling a complete app for a single payment, unlike pretty much all the others which sell you half an app then ask for more money for features or have some terrible subscription model.
I love this app but it has issues
by jennyz90 on 2019/01/21 07:49
I’ve been using After for as long as I can remember. My favorite editing app. There’s so much details one can add to create the best looking photos.. hence why I’m so annoyed.. I’ll be working on a photo for so long, then suddenly, the app crashes on me and I’ve lost all my hard work.. sometimes over an hours work. Not ideal for a photo editing app. I get so nervous editing now, that I’ll save it half way through just to insure that if it closes again (which it always does now when I use it) that at least I have it pre-saved. Well, to some extent. I think if the app is going to have this as an ongoing issue, maybe it would be wise and best to have a feature that automatically saves as you work. Sort of like when compiling an email or letter that keeps your work safe. Just helpful knowledge and suggestion.
Disappointed

I have had Afterlight 1 since it came out, and I absolutely loved it. I didn’t see a reason why the creators needed to replace it all together with this version. Because Afterlight 1 is no longer available in the App Store, I can no longer use the features that were my favorite: like the borders that looked like polaroids. If I can choose one thing to add to this version it would be that! Otherwise I will unfortunately be saying goodbye to this Afterlight. I don’t like the new light leaks (why not keep the old ones and just add new ones?), the layout, and the new filters. Please bring back some of the old options!!

This is a great photo editing app that doesn't bait and switch you. It has a strong set of tools and a solid UI Only suggestion: non-destructive crops. Sometimes I crop and then edit and decide to go back and change the crop. It seems like cropping needs to be the last step of your workflow because you can’t recover anything you cut out later.
Such a Great App!

When they say it’s an “all in one app” they really do mean it! It’s worth the money and I’ve been able to do so much with my photos since I got this app. The light leaks, the dust feature and being able to create my own filters has been such an amazing and fun experience. They’re constantly doing updates too! Its not doing anything, but getting better! Great work, Afterlight 😩
Really not impressed

So I paid 3 dollars for this app after ready the reviews and I was excepting it to be great but instead the app has crashed 3 times and my phone has started lagging. I also thought there was a way to change the color of the light leaks but unlike afterlight 1 there is not which is super disappointing. None of the filters are working either and the app all together is just laggy and glitchy. It seems like a great way to edit pictures but unfortunately for me it’s not working.
Consistently adding great features

I have to up my four-star review to a five because Afterlight’s devs really keep coming through. Enlight is still the app to beat, but I’m hopeful that, given the rate and quality of updates, Afterlight 2 will be my primary editing app in the near future. Fingers crossed, but until then, it’s still a stellar app that’s absolutely worth the few bucks they modestly ask.
Absolutely love love love!!!

I am a photographer and typically don’t like adjusting my photos with filters but that is what is in these days. This app is super easy to use and gives you the look of using film photography with the light leaks and grain specs. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone professional or not. It gives your images that extra ummmph they just need sometimes.
Updated review. Powerful editing

My previous concern with the export size limit has been addressed and images can be exported as large as 6144x6144 pixels in size which is greater than 24 mp. Much more usable. It has a very large variety of tools that allow for just about every kind of enhancement or modification. Much better than before. Now if the would just arrange the tools in a more logical order or better yet allow users to arrange the tools and hide tools they don’t use, it would be great. Current tool arrangement is haphazard and random.

The original Afterlight has been my go-to for years. So at first, I was pretty upset about it finally disappearing, which forced me to buy this replacement when I got a new phone. After using it for the first time, though, I’m so impressed at the new features (and keeping of the old ones that I’m used to) that I have no buyer’s remorse. A great photo editing tool.
Where is the framing tool??
by Ezeaizen on 2018/04/02 06:30
Update my review: Thanks for give me an answer so fast. Now I see that the tool was there, sorry, we users were used to the old version, I still like more the place where the tool was before. And the shapes, I didn’t use them so much, but they were kind of cool, I would bring them back. __________________ The framing tool to ad border to the photos is missing, one of my favorite thing, now I have to find a new app
SO BUGGY FOR ME.
by VanessaMichelle666 on 2018/08/13 06:47
Afterlight is my favorite photo editing app to use. I love all the options and filters. However, for whatever reason, this app runs so incredibly slow for me. I have an iPhone 7+ so it’s not like it’s a super outdated model. It will constantly freeze and take insanely long to respond, frequently just crashing all together. I’ve deleted and reinstalled, still to no avail. I will continue to use as like I said, i love the editing options. But good god it runs like trying to open The Sims on a Windows 98 desktop computer.
Great app but slow
by Jeff Davenport on 2018/05/16 22:16
One of my favorite phone editing apps for ease of use, filter presets and simple framing. Design is great and a pleasure to use. That being said the app can be buggy, stall and freeze up on my iPhone X. The camera roll can take awhile to load and the confirmation modal always hangs after an export and its difficult to get a good flow going. Sometimes I just bail on it and it’s a bummer! Would to see performance improve.
Belatedly discovered an excellent tool!

Along with ECP's wonderful Lightbrush, plus Retouch and Pixelmator, Afterlight 2 is another great and inexpensive tool to perfect iPhone photos! While the other apps mentioned focus on adjusting specific areas of a picture, Afterlight 2 is a terrific global image editor. It kind of reminds me of the power of Photoforge 2, the now abandoned and obsolete editor. But this one has even more features!
I really like this app, but...
by jimmorrisongirl on 2018/12/30 08:28
I really the app but, for some odd reason when I want to put a photo from one my album, the one I have on my iPhone, it doesn't let me get the photo. I don't know why. I try deleting the app and getting it again. And I even try turning off my phone. But, it still doesn't really wanna work. I was wondering, could it be because I have and old iPhone. I have the iPhone 6.
