great, but could be better

this app overall is amazing. most editing apps was disgusting destructive filters that looks horrible, but afterlight’s are actually pretty good. the interface is really easy to use, and is very user-friendly. this is a great app for both beginners and advanced editors. definitely recommend.
one thing i do suggest to change is fusion filters. with the current version, you have to start recording your filter before you even START editing the photo. i don’t like this, because sometimes i’m already done editing my photos before i realize, “hey, that was a pretty good edit, i wish i had made it a fusion filter.” i wish that there was an option to make your edits a fusion filter AFTER finishing editing your photo.
but overall, afterlight is great. it is definitely my #1 editing app, and i have tried a LOT. a much better deal than vsco or a color story and everything. definitely worth the $2.

Some feedback

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.

We're working on a fix for this issue, thanks for the report and the kind words!
