Great Intermediate 5/5
Coming from VSCO made workflow easy; software features make this app very much worth the money.
Basically Obsessed 5/5
I’m just learning how to really edit my photos and Afterlight has been an amazing tool to expand my knowledge and learn how to make my photos look trendy and professional! I’d definitely recommend this app to anyone.
Crashes on RAW File Import 2/5
By Zulu Monk
Wasn’t able to import RAW files that I had taken from a different camera. Did like the added curve adjustment features.
love it 5/5

I t makes me understand myself better!!!
I love it 5/5
I loved their first Afterlight app and was excited to try this one and they definitely didn’t disappoint. The new additions are amazing I can’t wait to continue using it.
Would be OK if it was stable 2/5
Lots of great features, but I haven't been able to use this app for more than minor edits because of instability. My photos simply disappear while I'm in the middle of editing them, sometimes after performing only a few edits, and I end up losing all my progress (can't hit "Done" because it then waits forever, I can only cancel). Hope they fix it, until then I regret spending money on this.
3 years of use 5/5
By Sam Rodeghier
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.
A Noticeable Upgrade + Most Robust Photo Editing App 5/5
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.

I honestly do not think it is worth the money at all if you are looking for a good editing app go with ps express. It does an awesome job plus it’s free
Quick Editing 5/5
This is a great app for quick and easy editing. I’ve been using it to enhance a lot of images so far.
Needs one more touch 5/5
It is a five star but there should be a blur option on this, it would give more options to the users!
WORTH IT! 5/5
Used the first version years ago and just remembered it again! I LOVE IT! Adds the perfect touch for my feed!
Very useful mobile tool. 5/5
By Zoot Carey
Though working on my photos in Photoshop on my Mac Laptop is my normal work flow, when I need to finish on iPhone I thank the heavens for Afterlight! Both the original and now the even more versatile 2.0. Talk about value.
Although this app is very similar to Afterlight, there’s many new features that make it worthwhile to get.
Nearly everything I want, NO SUBSCRIPTION 5/5
By Erika Carnea
And it’s easy to use to boot.
Needs way more light leaks 4/5
Afterlight was better than Afterlight 2 due to this new versions lack of light leaks.
Afterlight 2 5/5
In love with the new app!!!! 💟
I am still learning all the ins and outs but this is by far the best photo app yet ! So much to manipulate , I’m having too much fun ! phyllcoble
I like this app is once of my favorites you should add again the frames in specially the vintages. For vertical and horizontal pictures I remembered the last version very nice please add again.
By Anne amo
I think it's really rad, the only thing is I can't find the frame option? So I think it's missing
The only filter app you need period 🖤 5/5
I love everything! Todos 💙🖤💙
Every time i try and edit a photo the app closes on me. I don't know if it's because i have music in the background or what. Or because im using a iphone 6. Im sure its a bug so whatever it its please have a fix for this. I dint pay 2.99 just for this to crash every time i wanna edit a cool picture 🤦🏽♂️.
Won’t load images to edit 1/5
By I hate issues.
I haven’t had a single issue until now.
But all of a sudden, my app won’t load photos to the edit page. It’s incredibly frustrating and inconvenient as I use it for work.
PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE. ASAP.
AMAZ BALLS ! 5/5
By dewy oputa
So many features on this app Iv literally not stoped playing with it since I downloaded this an hour ago
If you like quality images this will definitely take your pictures to the next level AMAZING APP! I would give it 6 stars if I could.
Absolutely love love love!!! 5/5
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.
Good, but I can’t get rid of Afterlight 1 until the do this... 3/5
By Led Trousers
Afterlight 2 is good, but why aren’t all of the lightleaks & other overlays from Afterlight 1 included in the second edition? What’s more I can’t change the color of the lightleaks like you were able to do in Afterlight 1. Do the devs plan on addressing this oversight?
Images Turn Out Blurry 2/5
By iOS App Geek
Would be a great app. Please fix quickly. Uninstalling and downloading again doesn’t help.
By Brady Pappas
Every time I try to make an edit on photos I send to my phone from my camera it crashes. It’s sad because of one, the cost and two because this app has so much potential with all of the features that make it very similar to a mobile version of Lightroom. It’s very frustrating as a creator to keep losing the edits I’m making half way through the process every. single. time.
I highly recommend it 5/5
the app is great, I love using it in my photography class. Taking photos in the app I don’t like as much as Lightroom, but the rest of the app is great. It has a lot of cool features from making your photos look better to making memes. If you are thinking abut getting it, do it. Spend the $2.99
Wish there a eraser in the light leak 4/5
Still love this app but theirs one flaw that needs to be fixed. For the life of me I couldn’t figure out why when I used afterlight it would not save the photo on my iPhone or iPad. I could take a picture edit it but the only way to save it was to send it to my WD my cloud, Amazon photos, iCloud photo, google photos, flicker photo and so on but it would not save the photo on the phone or iPad. Called Apple and they was very helpful. The problem is if you have on iCloud sharing on it will not save your photo. The only way for it to work is to turn off iCloud photo sharing. Which I did and the app works. Turn it back on and it stops working again. I do like the app but also like to make albums to share with friends and family. Please update the app so I can use iCloud photo sharing.
I like this app a lot but I wish there was a way to not only fade light leaks but to erase parts. Example I had a picture of my little girl on a pier and wanted to use a effect in the light section that looked like clear dots when I used it it looked great on the water it looked as if the sun was being reflected on the water but didn’t want that effect on the face of my daughter.
Also I wish it would leave the EXIF data in the photo.
Unusable with a large library 1/5
I have 110,000 photos on iCloud and my device. Even with an iPhone X this app is unusable - it crashes constantly on image select and if it does open an image lags so badly it’s unusable. Waste of money if you have a large Photo library.
By Cyril Rosales
This app has been crashing every single time i use it.
WHERE IS HUE/SATURATION?!? 5/5
By Olivia Lousie RB
In the previews it shows selective hue is an option but where the hell is it?!?! HELP!!!
Diay promete, solo eso
Yeah it’s just that one thing that is going to make me feel like a good thing 5/5
Phenomenal — but crashes frequently 4/5
App is amazing. Really great features, but crashes very frequently. It’s frustrating to work on a photo and then lose the work.
Totally worth the purchase! 5/5
Afterlight has been nothing short of awesome for me! I use Lightroom and photoshop to edit my photos normally, but Afterlight does such a good job and does it much simpler/faster. I recommend this to everyone I know! Whether you take photography very seriously or just want to improve your Instagram game, this app is perfect for everything.
No HSL sliders 1/5
Please add HSL sliders or I'm giving it one stars.
The selective hue is just useless
SO BUGGY FOR ME. 2/5
Afterlight is my favorite photo editing app to use. I love all the options and filters. However, for whatever reason, this app runs so incredibly slow for me. I have an iPhone 7+ so it’s not like it’s a super outdated model. It will constantly freeze and take insanely long to respond, frequently just crashing all together. I’ve deleted and reinstalled, still to no avail. I will continue to use as like I said, i love the editing options. But good god it runs like trying to open The Sims on a Windows 98 desktop computer.
Confusing, but amazing editing platform 3/5
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
Good so far 🍃 4/5
Most apps I’ve encountered have constantly been asking for a subscription. And of course, they make their best features premium. Like, what’s the point of an editing app if you can’t use it to it’s full potential? I’d rather pay $1-5 for an app that lasts a lifetime than buy a subscription that makes you pay $10+ every month. Especially because my parents hate me buying subscription-based apps. Which is why I’m glad I found Afterlight. My personal favorites are the dust and grain filters. They really fit my aesthetic need. Though, I’d really like it if you guys added more fonts. Preferably from dafont.com, if you can even add fonts from there...
Keep up the good work and thanks for making my pictures prettier :)
Afterlight 2 is way beyond perfection but... 4/5
But please, pretty pretty please, do bring back those original light leaks and polaroid frames coz that’s what make Afterlight app exciting and interesting. Can I ask you guys a question? Why did you remove it?! Those pretty light leaks and polaroid frames before.. I miss them so badly 😢😭
Great but crashes a lot!!! 3/5
Please fix this bug!! Other than I absolutely love it.
Love this new version 5/5
Very intuitive and easy to navigate through different settings.. keep up the good work glad it’s in my editing apps ...
Worth it 5/5
My pictures look amazing
Best app 5/5
This is literally one of thee best apps ever!
Crash Crash Crash 2/5
Really enjoy the features in the app, but it crashes during every editing session. The app has crashed on me 4 times already today after force closing, restarting the phone, and trying multiple other ways to avoid the issue. This app would easily receive 5 stars if it didn’t crash so much.
Love it if it wasn’t so buggy 3/5
By Disappointed user!!!!!!!!!!!!
Compared to the first version this one crashes a lot specially every time you use “clarify” I find myself going to the old version a lot out of frustration, if it wasn’t for that I will give it the 5 stars.
The text 4/5
Whenever I try to put text over a picture the quality is terrible. I love everything else it’s just that the text is really blurry and is one of the main things i need.
app keep crashing!!! please update and fix!!! i can’t even edit a picture halfway through before it crashes and i lose everything i worked on
