Editors' Notes

Editing photos doesn’t have to require laborious tinkering; Afterlight transforms them in an instant. It delivers powerful tools for adjusting exposure, contrast, saturation, and sharpness—while also offering RAW image support and dozens of filters, dust effects, and light leaks.

Up to scratch

Really impressed. After working with expensive PS express on their free trial I was feeling like I would need to pay to get the features I wanted. I love that you can do selective touch ups, that the tool box is comprehensive, and that I can save filters to use them again (and again).

I still am having trouble finding exactly the filter I want to match what I put into PS express. Would be great to have more community filters or ways to sort them!

Thank you for making such an easy and up to date tool. Please continue to add new features!

Jam packed with features but still some improvement needed.

This app has so many good features that are missing in many other photo app such as H,S,L and colour/gradient overlays and curves; however I would like to see the ability to do selective local edits (possibly similar to Snapseed), a slider similar to Adobe’s “Dehaze” and to have to option of plain/chosen colour frames rather than default texture ones. Also the Hue sliders seem over sensitive and hard to make subtle changes.
Good job on the developers to committing to no in-app purchases and the continual roll out of filters is nice.
Just not sure how the filters are sorted or organised...🤔
Overall almost a full photo editing package. Well worth the price and great for most changes and more available in other apps.
