got rid of my favorite filter that was in a collection which is incredibly disappointing
Intuitive and easy 5/5
By Gritt McH
Surprisingly deep options with an easy to use interface. The touch controls are impressively accurate and responsive on a small iPhone screen. Far more versatility than the baked-in photo editing features for iOS.
O, Captain! My Captain! 5/5
After using the original Afterlight for years, I upgraded to Afterlight 2 without a second thought. And it was absolutely better in every way.
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.
I LOVE THIS PHOTO EDITOR!! 5/5
I finally bought this app! LOL I love this app but hoping more types of dust and scratches but still love it
A tad bit unpleased 3/5
I honestly prefer the original After Light and mainly because it has the feature where you could add a border around your photos. That is my signature when it comes to editing. I always have a border. I looked for hours for the Original After Light and looks like it’s no longer available. Looks like its nothing new on this but they did take away a few features.

So many options and my pictures come out crispy 🔥🔥🔥
Missing what made it good 1/5
No captain or Frost filter like the original
And no curved / rounded corner boarder options !!!!! Please fix I miss the original
I love you 5/5
Amazing. Selective color, selective hue, many tools like curves and exposure at your finger tips.
Also has grain, speckle, and light leak overlays as well as gradients and color overlays which are amazing when you want to get technical in your journey for creativity.
Furthermore this does almost everything Lightroom does but on a pocket scale of course. 10/10
Simply amazing. 5/5
Afterlight 1 was fantastic. This is on a whole other level. Sick.
Pretty Good 4/5
Lots of very good effects, however VERY SLOW. Please fix!
Best photo editing app I’ve found so far.
Great App for editing photos with mobile devices! 5/5
Pros/positive key points:
First, I will say the overall user friendliness of Afterlight 2 is easy to use and takes you through all process to edit a perfect picture. Second, the price is affordable at just $2.99, especially for all the features you get. You won’t find anything like this for free on the App Store ( for mobile phones) with all of the editing tools so you might as well pay a few dollars to have professional editing tools or you can pay over $2.99 for Apps/Software with the same editing tools , it’s all up to you based off your editing needs. This App has everything you need from your basic editing tools such as cropping, straightening, rotating , filters all the way to more advanced tools like selective hue, selective saturation, curves , overlays, add in textures & text + plus much more!
Cons/Feedback for future improvements:
App needs more B & W filters (( currently only 1 preset B & W filter available))
Add the capability to adjustment settings by typing numbers versus only using the slider (going left to right) using your finger. If you have fat fingers or shaky hands it maybe hard for some users to get the slider exactly on the number they want. A suggestion for future updates would be to allow users to type #’s for adjustments along with using the slider (( Example: You want to adjust the contrast to 50 so you type the 50 or use slider to put the the dial on the number 50)). This is still easy to do in the current function of this app but just a suggestion to improve user experience.
Great app , affordable, user friendly, basic all the way to professional editing tools! Recommend to everyone looking to enhance photos on their phone. This editing app is # 2 on the App Store ( paid apps) for a reason!
Amazing but...missing some features 4/5
Great that we can manage hues, saturation & curves now. But as far as the polarize classic film look, they dumped that.
Sadly I lost the first app on my phone after it dead & wasn’t able to get apps back. The filters I liked best were the polarized borders & dust filters....these features (the dust) are still in the app but less like able as the dust seems less visible to the naked eye.
The light leaks seem overpowering & less cool as the ones on the previous app.
I hope afterlight inventors bring back the first Afterlight to the App Store soon as I am missing it already.
Rip Afterlight 1.
Effects are good 3/5
effects are great but whatever happened to the frames? have to use a separate app just to add frames to the side for the whole picture to be seen.
Fascinating and outstanding 5/5
By Agent Iolite
The app is the most enjoyable of its kind and produces realistic edited photos. Thanksgiving to the person who made it available to us.
Great App but... 5/5
By Unsure Girl
It’s an awesome app w/ a lot of user-friendly ways to edit. Haven’t found a way to remove blemishes, which is a little disappointing, but for the price it’s totally a 5 Star app!
By Quentin Dennard
Perfect for highlighting specific colors. Great app.
Very intuitive 5/5
I love the app it gives me many tools to alter and modify my photo or any photo and all the tools are easy to use and find!
keeps crashing on me 3/5
app keeps crashing on me when I’m on it, but I still love the app!
Lovin’ it! 5/5
I only wish it had a few blur filters on top of its set of remarkable effects for photos.
In love with this app! 😍 5/5
Simple to use! So many features! Definitely worth the cost! 😊
Glen filter missing please help 2/5
I am going to CRYYYY. I cannot find the original after light in the App Store anywhere!!! The glen filter was literally the only filter I ever used and I can’t find anything slightly comparable in the second after light. Please help!!!
I never write reviews for apps, but I had to for this one. I didn’t think it was going to be all that due to the fact that it’s “just” an editing app, but I would literally spend $10 on this. It edits colors, textures, shapes, backgrounds, etc. Never using a different editing app again. Love it.
Great filters but it keeps crashing once I get done editing please fix this!
So versatile 5/5
This really has the broadest scope for editing for any app that is not a full month by month cost. Much more versatile than Snapseed, which I love or Halide or VSCO. Allows you to be either freeform and dwell over each stage of the process or just pick a filter. My go to app for iPhone photo editing
Great app 5/5
By Rachel Podell
Love the effects
Belatedly discovered an excellent tool! 5/5
Along with ECP's wonderful Lightbrush, plus Retouch and Pixelmator, Afterlight 2 is another great and inexpensive tool to perfect iPhone photos! While the other apps mentioned focus on adjusting specific areas of a picture, Afterlight 2 is a terrific global image editor. It kind of reminds me of the power of Photoforge 2, the now abandoned and obsolete editor. But this one has even more features!
Se cierra 4/5
No puedo usar la app se cierra al momento de querer editar por favor arréglenlo
wheres the frame button lol
Need more professional filters 3/5
Dear Team Afterlight
I’m kinda disappointed. I thought I’d find a lot of professional filters that fit Instagram feed themes, but all I can find is simple plain filters that other free apps afford, e.g. Snapseed.
I recommend you add some white filters and dark filters (you can type in Instagram search bar @knottoself to see what I mean by dark filters).
Moreover, I would like to see live filters feature, i.e., when open the cam, we can directly choose a certain filter for shooting.
Hopefully, developers shall include what we need in the next update.
This is literally my new favorite thing to use. So many different features that allow me to get the looks I want. ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT
By Alec Z.
This app is so cool! I use it all the time for photoshop, even though I am a beginner. I love this app and how easy it is to work, so keep up the good work! 😀
Bug Fixes??? 3/5
By Lead me to the Cross
I’ve always loved this app; it has so many quality editing features other apps don’t have, and it’s very organized. However, there are so many glitches!!! This app needs an update, ASAP!
Amazing app 5/5
By jane hav
Super great and I love the edits, they look very professional and cool. This is great for a vintage aesthetic and I love everything about it!!
Great app but slow 4/5
By Jeff Davenport
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.
Missing my favorite feature 3/5
On afterlight 1 I could round the corners of my photos to custom sizes. Now you can only have a circular photo frame or square. HOW DO I ROUND THE CORNERS :( It was the only app that had that feature. booooo help
The first was my go to photo editor for things more complicated than you can do in VSCO. There are some good new features but opening the app, exporting images and some menu transitions are incredibly buggy if they don’t freeze the app to a stand still. I don’t remember the last time I wrote an app review, I guess I hope they listen and fix things because it has the potential to be the only photo editor I use.
Loved it buuuuut 1/5
...Can't use it if it doesn't load. Wrote to customer service over a week ago. No reply. Same after second attempt. Paid for the pro version and had to delete it because, as of about two weeks ago, it crashes upon loading every single time. Help me out and I'm back to a 5-star review for this otherwise great app.
App crashes all the time in long edits
The best 5/5
I loooooove it
A bug??? 2/5
By Emmy! 😊
Whenever I try to use features like curves, brightness etc it’s suddenly making my image look posterized and black and white??? I don’t know how to explain it but I’ve been using this app for a few months now and I suddenly can’t edit with it because it completely distorts my photo when I try to use the adjustment tools. Filters work fine.
Works Exceptionally and Feature Req. 5/5
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.
Lots of options! 5/5
Love the filters and the different options of photo edits this app includes! Can’t go wrong, nothing to lose for only $2.99! ❤️
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.
Well doneeeeeeee 5/5
Thank you and thank you 😊 thank you and thank you sooooooooo much again thank you 😊
I’ve just started tinkering with the app but so far so good! Definitely has sparked a creative flame!
I like it so much
Shutter shutdown 4/5
It randomly shuts down a lot. Other than that, the effects are great!
Great tool 5/5
Just discovered this!!! Nice way to create some really cool ideas!
Really not impressed 3/5
By Avakin Life FANNN
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.
