Afterlight 2 App Tips, Tricks and Rules

Ugh  LMoonyoz  2 star

I love the functionality of this app, but it always randomly closes in the middle of editing and I lose all my work. This has happened so often, I’m going to have to switch to an app I like less. So annoying.


Awesome App ❤️❤️  mariooops  5 star

I absolutely love it.


Not working  nmreviews38  4 star

Currently when ever I try to filter one of my photos it turns the entire picture to black and white massive pixels. You can’t see any of the picture. This also happens when I try to use the “curves”and contrast buttons among others. Is there going to be a fix soon? (iPhone 6)


Great simple app now stop asking me to leave an review #damnit  Ganstaboy30  5 star

Crashing  wobelle  2 star

Looks like it has cool features but the app always crashes when I’m in the middle of trying to use them. :( I have the first afterlight which is nice but I hope this app works for me eventually since I bought this one. I have an iPhone 6 so it’s pretty slow/old but this is the only app that constantly crashes when I try to use it.

ME LOVES!!  Cool girl 987  5 star

I saw a person get this on their insta story and saying the money was worth it and just watching them transform their photos so beautiful from such popping colors by this app I just had to get it , thank you mom for going to the store and buying me a iTunes gift card just for this I love you so much , so worth it!! ♥️


👎🏽  ivanarevic  1 star

Removed the only feature I used this app for – Polaroid frames.


Annoyed and waste of money  beamcdonald  1 star

App constantly closes on me in the middle of editing pictures. I sfull have yet to have it open for more than a minute. This isn't a free app, so I expect it to AT LEAST stay open and not shut down. Disappointed and annoyed that I had to pay for something that doesn't even work!


Afterlight 2  JJ DUCHESS  5 star

I love this app! It’s so easy to use and there are so many options for the price! LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!


LOVE IT  beachvbgirl  5 star

Love this app! I am not the most tech savvy but they make it so easy. Truly made a difference!


Great App, I LOVE It!  SunlightRainer  5 star

It’s a amazing app and has many features. I would pay even more then the original and cheap price for it. I think this is the best photo edit app I have ever used before.


DO NOT BUY THIS APP  Braileybeast  1 star

I just purchased this app for “$4.50” and I’ve been charged $21.00 ?????


Love it  Weeewsst  5 star

I love the advanced tools they have, it’s very handy and is actually better than vsco. They do need to update their presets though.

Arcanus X

Great app with many useful features  Arcanus X  4 star

Hope there would be an option to compare original to edited everywhere in the app edits, and a blurring tool.


Great app but lacks basic features from original  KeverneC  4 star

Been using the app since the original came out and the second edition has a lot to love, like the more advance tools. However they neglected to include basic features that were found in the original app, such as: comparing edits to original photo and filters. I hope I’m time they address the issue and add more features.


disappointing  Chartila  1 star

its not as great as the original, the compromises aren’t satisfying. i cannot even get a refund either :(


No iPad version?  DaniDaan  2 star

The second edition doesn’t feel like a major update to me. And I still like using the first version more because it has a iPad edition.


Alright app, not THAT much of an upgrade from the original  MANDURPANDUR67  2 star

It breaks my heart to be mean on a review but the original kinda has more features in it anyways! The original even has WAY more filters And I can't get a refund!!! >:(

Audric W

Not much different  Audric W  3 star

Less filters than the original one.


Missing features  hayeselnut2127  3 star

Chris Brown 777

Awesome!!!  Chris Brown 777  5 star

So many options and my pictures come out crispy 🔥🔥🔥


Missing what made it good  aferlightlover123  1 star

No captain or Frost filter like the original And no curved / rounded corner boarder options !!!!! Please fix I miss the original


I love you  Aungo  5 star

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.  Kyle.King.98  5 star

Afterlight 1 was fantastic. This is on a whole other level. Sick.


Pretty Good  @unicorns4lifema  4 star

Lots of very good effects, however VERY SLOW. Please fix!


Excellent  Rwilkins78  5 star

Best photo editing app I’ve found so far.


Great App for editing photos with mobile devices!  Jgunter2011  5 star

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. Overall: 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  bringbackafterlight  4 star

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  marraym  3 star

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.

Agent Iolite

Fascinating and outstanding  Agent Iolite  5 star

The app is the most enjoyable of its kind and produces realistic edited photos. Thanksgiving to the person who made it available to us.


Frames elevate app  lambda_ct  5 star

Thank you for adding the frames option. For me now it is the first and only option as photo editing app. Much appreciated. 😎
