Great App
by BaleyBoo on 2019/04/24 23:30
I got an iTunes gift card for Christmas. I had totally forgotten about it until I cleaned my room. I looked on the App Store for a good app to get, and I found Afterlight 2. It looked super cool, so I downloaded it. I’ve had it for about a week, and I love it so much. I love the fact that you can change pictures so much so quickly. I’ve edited countless pictures since I’ve gotten the app, and it’s never disappointed me. Thanks for the great app!

by realmsoflightworkchi on 2019/04/24 12:48
It’s worth it! Highly recommend.
Updated to Afterlight 2 - no fix
by computerninja on 2019/04/24 10:47
I just updated to version 2 to fix an issue I had with version 1 where the image wouldn't complete when tapping Done, it would just present a spinner. The same thing happens in version 2! And like another user mentioned, the interface turned black for me - when I tried Clarify. Perhaps these aren't compatible with the latest iOS - 12.2? Aside from that, the app feels smoother and faster than the first version.

Literally best thing ever
by Hfedida on 2019/04/19 21:09
This is by far one of the best editing apps I have ever encountered- and for free? What sorcery? Where’s the trap!? The creative possibilities are endless and simply the abilities given to edit photographs- remarkable.
Needs a teeth whitening option!
by kiiirstennnXC on 2019/04/18 21:35
There needs to be a tool where you can whiten teeth specifically- other than that, it’s perfect!!!!
Best app for creative photography
by bsllim on 2019/04/15 00:16
This Is the best app for ease-of-use and transfer ability I really enjoyed
Productivity!!!
by Caseyeyaj on 2019/04/13 00:11
I can use this for anything! As an artist I make my own album artwork however I can whether I am cropping pictures I took with my 5s then changing the colors in them after layering filters to customize my own!! I really enjoy using this, you can find combinations until the end of time!
Annoyed
by Chuck 36 on 2019/04/10 16:53
I switched over from Android to iPhone to see how I like it. So far I have not been able to find an actual photo editing app like that of tool whiz for Android. One of my favorite things to do is combining photos together and doing cool things with it. You can combine photos together. But there is no opacity option for the picture you added. The opacity is only for the original phot. I figured paying for an app would have given me that option since snapfeed doesn't do it either. I will go back to Android just for the fact they have better photo editing apps. It is one of my hobbies. Unless there is something I do not know about this app. It isn't worth three dollars of you can't do everything with it. Toolwhiz is totally free for Android and it is phenomenal! Help me understand.. Thanks
Great Filters, but manual editing needs fixing
by Cvboy776 on 2019/04/09 21:24
Great app to slap a quick filter on a photo but I have to say the manual photo editing is a bit snotty. Specifically when you reduce the highlights it absolutely destroys them and turns them a dull gray or even a green tone. I wish the manual adjustments were more similar to Lightroom’s but a lot of work went into this app and it is a lot of fun. However, I hope the developers try and fix some of the strange color issues that occur when doing simple manual adjustments.
Update!
by addjsjshs on 2019/04/08 22:31
I would love it if you guys added analog filters and just new filters in general pretty often. Updates don’t come out as often and it’s a real bummer
Instagramable
by Poringaa on 2019/04/08 02:49
Look for presets on Pinterest for quick editing
When it works it’s great but it usually doesn’t
by mook504 on 2019/04/07 02:54
I have reached out 3 times about an issue where I can’t edit my photos - they just keep buffering acting like they’re going to load. I’ve noticed this is especially true with my high quality photos. Customer service has not responded AT ALL. So frustrating! I hate that I paid money for an app I can’t use 90% of the time.
Very good but could be better
by CPRMIN on 2019/04/01 21:58
Great for manipulating color and adding texture. I would like to see the addition of a feature to HDR look to your images. A “sepia” function would also be helpful.
Great But Missing one Thing and One Minor Thing.
by Anonymousasking23 on 2019/04/01 19:58
Is There A Feature Where You Can See What the original photo look liked and compare and there's need to be a Touch Up Tool!!! For Blemishes or to smoothen out.
In love with this editor. Just feel like it’s missing a few features.
by BloxyTuxedo on 2019/04/01 04:57
Some basic features including; a healing tool, more customizable grain effects, being able to reform shapes and such, and most importantly... an eyedrop tool! I seem to mainly use tools that mess around with color in this photo editor, and some colors i’d like to get perfect compared to another color in the photo I’m editing. Though, it is possible to just try and change the given color to fit another color, it’d be much easier and a lot more accurate to use an eyedrop tool. Love the app, though. I use it for graphics design and such. Thank you, developers!
love!
by sarahcerney on 2019/03/29 22:11
I’ve loved afterlight since the first iteration, years ago. it’s the most easy and beautiful! makes all my photos so much better ❤️ thanks afterlight!

An amateur’s opinion
by shawnpt on 2019/03/19 17:43
I’ve only been using this app for taking pics of food in my food truck for a few days. That said, it has 150% improved my photo abilities. The controls are intuitive and easy to use. Just take a little time to play around and see what it can do.
I love it! But
by Sebabug on 2019/03/18 00:54
I really miss the fun patterned frames from the original Afterlight! I would love if we could have that back. Other than that it is the same Afterlight I love from before, just streamlined and improved. If ya bring back those frames I’ll definitely give y’all five stars! 😸
Good but add...
by C3liaMD on 2019/03/16 08:51
This is the best photo editing app I have used so far. It would be even better if you added a object removal tool like in ‘TouchRetouch’ and make it easier to do double exposers like in ‘Enlight’. Over really good though👍🏻
Afterlight
by pgmwek on 2019/03/15 23:34
I just downloaded the app. I gave it a 4 because I haven’t used it enough for a 5. But so far it’s been very intuitive, easy, fast, and very effective! I’ve tried 3 photos so far and each time I go back into the app I discover more cool tools and filters. Love the overlays very cool. I’ve been working on a friend’s favorite photo of her and her husband. It’s an older one so it’s a picture of the photo. Those are tough! But I was able to pull some color out and add where it needed to go. Example; they had black pants and shirts but in editing before I got this app I couldn’t get the blue out. But afterlight pulled the blue right out easily! Then I just pulled the black back in quick and easy! Yeah! The other thing was they had been in the sun with sunglasses that day so they had tan faces but with the white raccoon eyes! I hadn’t been able to get their skin color to even out. With afterlight 2 it faded right away! Beautiful! So thank you to the Afterlight 2 developer and team! I don’t mind paying for an app when it works and especially thank you for not having to have a subscription! Or a monthly charge! Last but not least I’m very happy that you don’t have to pay more to unlock each filter pack to get the good ones! I love it and I a have used a lot of photo editing apps! Haven’t used the camera yet. But after I do and get some more time in to become more familiar with all the tools, effects,lighting, and filters I will write another review and I have high hope to give it a 5! Thanks for the cool app and attention to detail but keeping it simple! Pam King

Literally incredible
by Janee Lookerse on 2019/03/05 20:03
I’ve been using Afterlight for years, but this new version is a whole new ballgame. It has every editing feature photoshop desktop has. It’s amazing. Highly highly recommend.
Favorite app for quick and quality editing
by Queen of indie on 2019/03/04 18:03
I’ve tried nearly all photo editing apps and have yet to find one that is worth its bang for buck. This one came recommended by someone from Instagram after I saw their great quality photos. I took a leap and purchased it right before a vacation. It changed the game! Easy to navigate and use. My photos look incredible after I’ve spent some time on them with this app. All I wish that they offered is a resizing option similar to VSCO. I don’t mean cropping, but an actual option to reformat the shaping for instagram sizing. Overall- worth every penny and then some!!
Creative Control
by pyoneer on 2019/03/03 22:38

by Jesu Sapphire on 2019/03/01 03:29

Blending
by GFeline on 2019/02/27 21:59
I like many of the tools in this app, but the blender needs some work. There is no eraser and you can't resize your foreground images. That's the main reason I bought it. I'll look around to see if I've missed something.
Layering?
by Fha203k on 2019/02/23 12:57
Looking to layer photo on top of photo. Am I missing something or is this not possible with this app?
No Free Crop
by ItzTina on 2019/02/23 01:55
I’m very disappointed in the lack of a free crop feature, even the free picsart app has that!
Perfect, but one flaw
by StephHillner on 2019/02/21 20:46
Ever since deciding to buy this app, I have been SO glad! It’s one of the best apps for editing ever, and has options that are hard to find elsewhere. However, one thing that’s really frustrating is that changes don’t remain once saved when you’re editing in camera roll. This is important for me because I want the original photo modified, not have copies which are tougher to keep track of, especially when you need things in chronological order. Please fix this issue!!
Super professional!
by hey luverr on 2019/02/19 05:52
I love that this app has touch editing where you can go and specifically edit different parts of the photo. This is really only common in premium editing programs so I love that I can use this without the huge cost! I highly recommend this!
Photos are great
by bdhehbzbxh on 2019/02/18 22:39
I had VSCO and tried many other editing apps but this one is so simple with many options and they just added touch ups, so it’s easier to hide imperfections and bring out the best love it so much, I’ve never had it crash in the whole time I’ve used it so I think they fixed that problem
endless options
by Erickkkus on 2019/02/18 06:56
so many tools that most other apps don’t have, and could only really be found on desktop software
Bring back old features
by _proletariat_ on 2019/02/17 17:50
I wish the dev team would bring back the rounded edges option in framing from afterlight 1 (which you can no longer download) - I built my feed on it and my followers immediately know it’s post of mine and stop swiping to like/comment. It’s one of the small nuances that sets them apart from other apps. Also, in the photos app you can use Afterlight to edit within but the api limits framing and texture overlay. Hopefully the dev team will integrate these features with the next update and I’ll update my rating to 5 stars. - @calquinn
Amazing!
by Egghead101😋 on 2019/02/16 15:43
This app is so good! I’ve been able to edit my photos so much better and it’s much, much easier! I’m in love with the new touch tools, they help you bring out whatever it is in your photo you want, and it’s really a ton of fun to play around with!

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

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

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!

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

So far so good.

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.

Snapseed is way better, and it is free. This app is lame, and the filters are cheesy.

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

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
Perfect

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
by edris jasemi on 2018/12/25 07:48
this app is best & easy application this is very very good 🙏thank you
Good but...
by Miyukiwonders on 2018/12/21 16:55
Forgive me if I’m blind but does this app not have a blur feature?
Love
by Kjoburn on 2018/12/21 06:59
Love, love this app! Helps me to make my pictures flawless and more interesting! Thank you!!!
Yay
by lilipad102 on 2018/12/20 22:38
Finally an editing app that works its cheap and perfect for beginners at editing like me great for insta too!!!
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!
Easy to Use
by Ms G Martin on 2018/12/18 03:06
I’ve only been using the app for a week and I love it!
CRASHES AFTER TWO EDITS
by tylorpadg on 2018/12/17 19:58
Really good app amazing things you can do to pictures but after two edits it crashes
Implement an auto-save feature immediately!
by Eder Acebo on 2018/12/17 17:35
Title says it all. Fix the app. Constant crashes. Used to be really great.
Add raw support and it’s perfect
by bacon comander on 2018/12/17 04:29
Add some raw support and it absolutely perfect
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!
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.
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
Favorite app for quick and quality editing
by Queen of indie on 2019/03/04 18:03
I’ve tried nearly all photo editing apps and have yet to find one that is worth its bang for buck. This one came recommended by someone from Instagram after I saw their great quality photos. I took a leap and purchased it right before a vacation. It changed the game! Easy to navigate and use. My photos look incredible after I’ve spent some time on them with this app. All I wish that they offered is a resizing option similar to VSCO. I don’t mean cropping, but an actual option to reformat the shaping for instagram sizing. Overall- worth every penny and then some!!
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.
In love with this editor. Just feel like it’s missing a few features.
by BloxyTuxedo on 2019/04/01 04:57
Some basic features including; a healing tool, more customizable grain effects, being able to reform shapes and such, and most importantly... an eyedrop tool! I seem to mainly use tools that mess around with color in this photo editor, and some colors i’d like to get perfect compared to another color in the photo I’m editing. Though, it is possible to just try and change the given color to fit another color, it’d be much easier and a lot more accurate to use an eyedrop tool. Love the app, though. I use it for graphics design and such. Thank you, developers!
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
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
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.
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.
Perfect, but one flaw
by StephHillner on 2019/02/21 20:46
Ever since deciding to buy this app, I have been SO glad! It’s one of the best apps for editing ever, and has options that are hard to find elsewhere. However, one thing that’s really frustrating is that changes don’t remain once saved when you’re editing in camera roll. This is important for me because I want the original photo modified, not have copies which are tougher to keep track of, especially when you need things in chronological order. Please fix this issue!!
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.
Great Filters, but manual editing needs fixing
by Cvboy776 on 2019/04/09 21:24
Great app to slap a quick filter on a photo but I have to say the manual photo editing is a bit snotty. Specifically when you reduce the highlights it absolutely destroys them and turns them a dull gray or even a green tone. I wish the manual adjustments were more similar to Lightroom’s but a lot of work went into this app and it is a lot of fun. However, I hope the developers try and fix some of the strange color issues that occur when doing simple manual adjustments.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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!

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 😩
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!!
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.

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.
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.
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
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.

Great App
by BaleyBoo on 2019/04/24 23:30
I got an iTunes gift card for Christmas. I had totally forgotten about it until I cleaned my room. I looked on the App Store for a good app to get, and I found Afterlight 2. It looked super cool, so I downloaded it. I’ve had it for about a week, and I love it so much. I love the fact that you can change pictures so much so quickly. I’ve edited countless pictures since I’ve gotten the app, and it’s never disappointed me. Thanks for the great app!
Overall
by realmsoflightworkchi on 2019/04/24 12:48
It’s worth it! Highly recommend.
Updated to Afterlight 2 - no fix
by computerninja on 2019/04/24 10:47
I just updated to version 2 to fix an issue I had with version 1 where the image wouldn't complete when tapping Done, it would just present a spinner. The same thing happens in version 2! And like another user mentioned, the interface turned black for me - when I tried Clarify. Perhaps these aren't compatible with the latest iOS - 12.2? Aside from that, the app feels smoother and faster than the first version.

Literally best thing ever
by Hfedida on 2019/04/19 21:09
This is by far one of the best editing apps I have ever encountered- and for free? What sorcery? Where’s the trap!? The creative possibilities are endless and simply the abilities given to edit photographs- remarkable.
Needs a teeth whitening option!
by kiiirstennnXC on 2019/04/18 21:35
There needs to be a tool where you can whiten teeth specifically- other than that, it’s perfect!!!!
Best app for creative photography
by bsllim on 2019/04/15 00:16
This Is the best app for ease-of-use and transfer ability I really enjoyed
Productivity!!!
by Caseyeyaj on 2019/04/13 00:11
I can use this for anything! As an artist I make my own album artwork however I can whether I am cropping pictures I took with my 5s then changing the colors in them after layering filters to customize my own!! I really enjoy using this, you can find combinations until the end of time!
Annoyed
by Chuck 36 on 2019/04/10 16:53
I switched over from Android to iPhone to see how I like it. So far I have not been able to find an actual photo editing app like that of tool whiz for Android. One of my favorite things to do is combining photos together and doing cool things with it. You can combine photos together. But there is no opacity option for the picture you added. The opacity is only for the original phot. I figured paying for an app would have given me that option since snapfeed doesn't do it either. I will go back to Android just for the fact they have better photo editing apps. It is one of my hobbies. Unless there is something I do not know about this app. It isn't worth three dollars of you can't do everything with it. Toolwhiz is totally free for Android and it is phenomenal! Help me understand.. Thanks
Great Filters, but manual editing needs fixing
by Cvboy776 on 2019/04/09 21:24
Great app to slap a quick filter on a photo but I have to say the manual photo editing is a bit snotty. Specifically when you reduce the highlights it absolutely destroys them and turns them a dull gray or even a green tone. I wish the manual adjustments were more similar to Lightroom’s but a lot of work went into this app and it is a lot of fun. However, I hope the developers try and fix some of the strange color issues that occur when doing simple manual adjustments.
Update!
by addjsjshs on 2019/04/08 22:31
I would love it if you guys added analog filters and just new filters in general pretty often. Updates don’t come out as often and it’s a real bummer
Instagramable
by Poringaa on 2019/04/08 02:49
Look for presets on Pinterest for quick editing
When it works it’s great but it usually doesn’t
by mook504 on 2019/04/07 02:54
I have reached out 3 times about an issue where I can’t edit my photos - they just keep buffering acting like they’re going to load. I’ve noticed this is especially true with my high quality photos. Customer service has not responded AT ALL. So frustrating! I hate that I paid money for an app I can’t use 90% of the time.
Very good but could be better
by CPRMIN on 2019/04/01 21:58
Great for manipulating color and adding texture. I would like to see the addition of a feature to HDR look to your images. A “sepia” function would also be helpful.
Great But Missing one Thing and One Minor Thing.
by Anonymousasking23 on 2019/04/01 19:58
Is There A Feature Where You Can See What the original photo look liked and compare and there's need to be a Touch Up Tool!!! For Blemishes or to smoothen out.
In love with this editor. Just feel like it’s missing a few features.
by BloxyTuxedo on 2019/04/01 04:57
Some basic features including; a healing tool, more customizable grain effects, being able to reform shapes and such, and most importantly... an eyedrop tool! I seem to mainly use tools that mess around with color in this photo editor, and some colors i’d like to get perfect compared to another color in the photo I’m editing. Though, it is possible to just try and change the given color to fit another color, it’d be much easier and a lot more accurate to use an eyedrop tool. Love the app, though. I use it for graphics design and such. Thank you, developers!
love!
by sarahcerney on 2019/03/29 22:11
I’ve loved afterlight since the first iteration, years ago. it’s the most easy and beautiful! makes all my photos so much better ❤️ thanks afterlight!

An amateur’s opinion
by shawnpt on 2019/03/19 17:43
I’ve only been using this app for taking pics of food in my food truck for a few days. That said, it has 150% improved my photo abilities. The controls are intuitive and easy to use. Just take a little time to play around and see what it can do.
I love it! But
by Sebabug on 2019/03/18 00:54
I really miss the fun patterned frames from the original Afterlight! I would love if we could have that back. Other than that it is the same Afterlight I love from before, just streamlined and improved. If ya bring back those frames I’ll definitely give y’all five stars! 😸
Good but add...
by C3liaMD on 2019/03/16 08:51
This is the best photo editing app I have used so far. It would be even better if you added a object removal tool like in ‘TouchRetouch’ and make it easier to do double exposers like in ‘Enlight’. Over really good though👍🏻
Afterlight
by pgmwek on 2019/03/15 23:34
I just downloaded the app. I gave it a 4 because I haven’t used it enough for a 5. But so far it’s been very intuitive, easy, fast, and very effective! I’ve tried 3 photos so far and each time I go back into the app I discover more cool tools and filters. Love the overlays very cool. I’ve been working on a friend’s favorite photo of her and her husband. It’s an older one so it’s a picture of the photo. Those are tough! But I was able to pull some color out and add where it needed to go. Example; they had black pants and shirts but in editing before I got this app I couldn’t get the blue out. But afterlight pulled the blue right out easily! Then I just pulled the black back in quick and easy! Yeah! The other thing was they had been in the sun with sunglasses that day so they had tan faces but with the white raccoon eyes! I hadn’t been able to get their skin color to even out. With afterlight 2 it faded right away! Beautiful! So thank you to the Afterlight 2 developer and team! I don’t mind paying for an app when it works and especially thank you for not having to have a subscription! Or a monthly charge! Last but not least I’m very happy that you don’t have to pay more to unlock each filter pack to get the good ones! I love it and I a have used a lot of photo editing apps! Haven’t used the camera yet. But after I do and get some more time in to become more familiar with all the tools, effects,lighting, and filters I will write another review and I have high hope to give it a 5! Thanks for the cool app and attention to detail but keeping it simple! Pam King

Literally incredible
by Janee Lookerse on 2019/03/05 20:03
I’ve been using Afterlight for years, but this new version is a whole new ballgame. It has every editing feature photoshop desktop has. It’s amazing. Highly highly recommend.
Favorite app for quick and quality editing
by Queen of indie on 2019/03/04 18:03
I’ve tried nearly all photo editing apps and have yet to find one that is worth its bang for buck. This one came recommended by someone from Instagram after I saw their great quality photos. I took a leap and purchased it right before a vacation. It changed the game! Easy to navigate and use. My photos look incredible after I’ve spent some time on them with this app. All I wish that they offered is a resizing option similar to VSCO. I don’t mean cropping, but an actual option to reformat the shaping for instagram sizing. Overall- worth every penny and then some!!
Creative Control

Amazing!
Blending
by GFeline on 2019/02/27 21:59
I like many of the tools in this app, but the blender needs some work. There is no eraser and you can't resize your foreground images. That's the main reason I bought it. I'll look around to see if I've missed something.
Layering?
by Fha203k on 2019/02/23 12:57
Looking to layer photo on top of photo. Am I missing something or is this not possible with this app?
No Free Crop
by ItzTina on 2019/02/23 01:55
I’m very disappointed in the lack of a free crop feature, even the free picsart app has that!
Perfect, but one flaw
by StephHillner on 2019/02/21 20:46
Ever since deciding to buy this app, I have been SO glad! It’s one of the best apps for editing ever, and has options that are hard to find elsewhere. However, one thing that’s really frustrating is that changes don’t remain once saved when you’re editing in camera roll. This is important for me because I want the original photo modified, not have copies which are tougher to keep track of, especially when you need things in chronological order. Please fix this issue!!
Super professional!
by hey luverr on 2019/02/19 05:52
I love that this app has touch editing where you can go and specifically edit different parts of the photo. This is really only common in premium editing programs so I love that I can use this without the huge cost! I highly recommend this!
Photos are great
by bdhehbzbxh on 2019/02/18 22:39
I had VSCO and tried many other editing apps but this one is so simple with many options and they just added touch ups, so it’s easier to hide imperfections and bring out the best love it so much, I’ve never had it crash in the whole time I’ve used it so I think they fixed that problem
endless options
by Erickkkus on 2019/02/18 06:56
so many tools that most other apps don’t have, and could only really be found on desktop software
Bring back old features
by _proletariat_ on 2019/02/17 17:50
I wish the dev team would bring back the rounded edges option in framing from afterlight 1 (which you can no longer download) - I built my feed on it and my followers immediately know it’s post of mine and stop swiping to like/comment. It’s one of the small nuances that sets them apart from other apps. Also, in the photos app you can use Afterlight to edit within but the api limits framing and texture overlay. Hopefully the dev team will integrate these features with the next update and I’ll update my rating to 5 stars. - @calquinn
Amazing!
by Egghead101😋 on 2019/02/16 15:43
This app is so good! I’ve been able to edit my photos so much better and it’s much, much easier! I’m in love with the new touch tools, they help you bring out whatever it is in your photo you want, and it’s really a ton of fun to play around with!

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

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!

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

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...

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
by Dbuggas on 2019/01/06 02:32
Seriously. I ended up buying the app. Best purchase.
Perfect!
by nckesq on 2019/01/04 21:03
My absolute favorite photo editing app. Amazing features & runs perfectly on 10s max. Worth every penny!
Next Level
by EnishaSB on 2019/01/04 12:27
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.
Love
by Elisandra Serrano on 2019/01/04 06:13
I love it !!😍😍😍
Awesome
by StGNUCCA on 2019/01/04 00:22
This is the BEST app EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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
Love it!
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
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
by edris jasemi on 2018/12/25 07:48
this app is best & easy application this is very very good 🙏thank you
Good but...
by Miyukiwonders on 2018/12/21 16:55
Forgive me if I’m blind but does this app not have a blur feature?
Love
by Kjoburn on 2018/12/21 06:59
Love, love this app! Helps me to make my pictures flawless and more interesting! Thank you!!!
Yay
by lilipad102 on 2018/12/20 22:38
Finally an editing app that works its cheap and perfect for beginners at editing like me great for insta too!!!
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!
Easy to Use
by Ms G Martin on 2018/12/18 03:06
I’ve only been using the app for a week and I love it!
CRASHES AFTER TWO EDITS
by tylorpadg on 2018/12/17 19:58
Really good app amazing things you can do to pictures but after two edits it crashes
Implement an auto-save feature immediately!
by Eder Acebo on 2018/12/17 17:35
Title says it all. Fix the app. Constant crashes. Used to be really great.
Add raw support and it’s perfect
by bacon comander on 2018/12/17 04:29
Add some raw support and it absolutely perfect
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!
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.
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
Favorite app for quick and quality editing
by Queen of indie on 2019/03/04 18:03
I’ve tried nearly all photo editing apps and have yet to find one that is worth its bang for buck. This one came recommended by someone from Instagram after I saw their great quality photos. I took a leap and purchased it right before a vacation. It changed the game! Easy to navigate and use. My photos look incredible after I’ve spent some time on them with this app. All I wish that they offered is a resizing option similar to VSCO. I don’t mean cropping, but an actual option to reformat the shaping for instagram sizing. Overall- worth every penny and then some!!
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.
In love with this editor. Just feel like it’s missing a few features.
by BloxyTuxedo on 2019/04/01 04:57
Some basic features including; a healing tool, more customizable grain effects, being able to reform shapes and such, and most importantly... an eyedrop tool! I seem to mainly use tools that mess around with color in this photo editor, and some colors i’d like to get perfect compared to another color in the photo I’m editing. Though, it is possible to just try and change the given color to fit another color, it’d be much easier and a lot more accurate to use an eyedrop tool. Love the app, though. I use it for graphics design and such. Thank you, developers!
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. :)

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
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
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.
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.
Perfect, but one flaw
by StephHillner on 2019/02/21 20:46
Ever since deciding to buy this app, I have been SO glad! It’s one of the best apps for editing ever, and has options that are hard to find elsewhere. However, one thing that’s really frustrating is that changes don’t remain once saved when you’re editing in camera roll. This is important for me because I want the original photo modified, not have copies which are tougher to keep track of, especially when you need things in chronological order. Please fix this issue!!
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

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.
Great Filters, but manual editing needs fixing
by Cvboy776 on 2019/04/09 21:24
Great app to slap a quick filter on a photo but I have to say the manual photo editing is a bit snotty. Specifically when you reduce the highlights it absolutely destroys them and turns them a dull gray or even a green tone. I wish the manual adjustments were more similar to Lightroom’s but a lot of work went into this app and it is a lot of fun. However, I hope the developers try and fix some of the strange color issues that occur when doing simple manual adjustments.
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

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!
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.
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!
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.
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 😩
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!!
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.
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.
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
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.
