Afterglow – Photo Editor
A decent app, and something worth splashing 69p on if you’re bored of Instagram and Hipstamatic’s filters, but no great shakes.
Afterglow – Photo Editor Review
by on December 14, 2012
Yes, yes, yes; it’s yet another filters app; unlike the recently reviewed Starmatic, it doesn’t have its own Instagram-like sharing community, and it’s not even especially pretty. It caught our eye, though, for two reasons.
The first is that as well as having the option of applying filters to your photos – and there is a broad though poorly differentiated range of filters for you to chose from – you can also tweak your photos in more traditional ways – brightness, contrast, straighten, colour temperature and so on.
The second is the ability to apply textures and nicely hipster-ish light leak patterns manually on top of filters and other tweaks. It’s irritating that you can’t stack these up – well, you can if you apply one and then tweak the straightening to burn the first in, but, yuk – and we’d like more manual control.
