Afterlight App Description & Overview

The applications Afterlight was published in the category Photo & Video on 2012-11-05 and was developed by Afterlight Collective, Inc. The file size is 78.60 MB. The current version is 3.5.2 and works well on 8.0 and high ios versions.

Afterlight is now officially 5 years old! We thought this anniversary was as good a time as ever to do something big and fresh, so today we're introducing our brand new app, Afterlight 2. We've packed a ton of new features and content into this release, and we hope you love it!

The original Afterlight is now available free as we focus on what's new, but rest assured, we aren't going anywhere! We will continue to take feedback, make fixes and add new content here frequently!

— Minor bug fixes and improvements.

Thanks for using Afterlight!

Afterlight Reviews


Feeling cheated  tesssmyle  1 star

I paid for filter upgrades about the price of the new afterlight 2. And now what I paid for is free to everyone. I feel cheated. They should upgrade loyal customers to afterlight 2 for free.


Pretty good  ForeverOS1033  5 star

I like editing my photos on this app I think I payed like 5$ now it's free so take advantage.


devs kick loyal customers to the curb  RevelationAdept  1 star

Instead of updating the app they’ve just proudly announced is five years old, the devs chose to abandon it for a “new” one that looks, well, exactly like the old one would with an update. Oh, and a 2 at the end of the name so you can tell them apart. And of course a “new” price tag...


Nice  McGreye  5 star

been using for years


3 Stars for Disappointing Service  isobelandcleoknitwear  3 star

I rarely leave reviews but I too am upset to have paid for this app and the developers are now releasing a second one with all the updates that should be on this one. Poorly done guys. Offering these updates as in app purchases would have prompted me to buy if I wanted to but now I’m just so annoyed I’m not even going to look at Afterlight 2 and may just delete this off my phone entirely and use ColorStory even though I prefer I believe this app is more user friendly.


Update the app to work on iPhone X  JordynKLow  1 star

I love using this app but ever since getting the iPhone X it stretches over the end of the screen when editing from within the photos app, as in fixing the original photo as opposed to editing and duplicating the whole freaking photo and creating a monster in my albums. I used to be able to post an edited photo from this app directly to Instagram, now the options overlap my service icons making it impossible for me to press next and post to Instagram. Now this means I am duplicating originals, and then duplicating them again to size them for insta. Seriously? Fix this instead of paying attention to creating a whole new app for this. 🙄 not to mention I paid 5$ for this app and now it’s free? What a way to piss on your original buyers. 🖕🏼


Love it but disappointed..  RNS101  2 star

I love the app, but why not make Afterlight 2 free for the customers who’ve already bought the original..


Needs iPhone X Support  IhaveRice2  2 star

No excuse for not providing iPhone X support. It’s been months since the X became available already!!!!!



Every since the update I cannot post to Instagram the sizing is inaccurate goes over the boundaries to actually continue to upload! Fix this ASAP


Too Slow  Kkmika  3 star

I bought this specifically for the overlay effect, but it’s soooo slow. It takes about 20 seconds for the second image to load to do the overlay, very annoying when you’re trying to test out multiple photos..


NO UPDATE!!  iThilan  2 star

Not cool you guys release 2nd version already and forgot about this not fair at all and this version not even updated for iPhone X thats RUDE!! taking our money and forgetting the current users and seeking for new ?? Wow!!


Great for adding borders!  OGmums  4 star

Great for adding borders! Needs a little practice or a tutorial to use all features.

Amazing  Asdfghjklxghjf  5 star

I so far vey happy with this app ^^


Totally worth it!!  🗣🗣👍  5 star

Literally any photo already good or bad it always makes it better. It's amazing quality is perfect for posting on social media.


v good  Coolcatrox  4 star

this app is a great app and i use it for all my filtering, but when i started using it i did find it slightly confusing, with little extras that i didn't notice for quite a while, but so much easier to use than others. i like it a lot ((examples of fusions i created on livsterx and shelllcottage on ig ;) ))


Great app  Jona324  5 star

I have been using this app for over 2 years and still loving it.So many useful filters.


Best app for filters!  lauradegeorge  5 star

Crashes on iOS 11  California Surf Boy  1 star

Bought this app so I’m annoyed a week later it’s now free but my issue is it no longer works. Won’t open or crashes on iOS 11 devices. iPhone 6s iPhone 7 Plus and iPad Pro 9.7


Waste of my money  Fkalat  1 star

I wasted my money since it became a free app. Disgusting.


Paid app now free??  CrimsonSun5  1 star

How is that a good thing for those of us who paid money for the original app, only to be told you now have to pay AGAIN if you want to get the upgraded version. So, I’m going to be the lucky one who pays twice. Hmmm...maybe I’m missing something here. Not happy at all.


Blurry uploads after editing  Thiscollegegal  4 star

As of lately the app has been saving my photos but they are really blurry once I upload them to instagram. I will give it another shot, by I may switch. When I zoom in on the photo after posting it to IG it's not as crisp as the original photo.. But I love the apps capabilities and hope to be able to continue using it


Annoyed.  Allyonlyweknow  1 star

I love this app, but the fact that it’s free now is annoying when I had to pay for it four years ago. Users should be able to download Afterlight 2 for free now as well since we paid for the original. Just after the money apparently.


Disappointed  PashFam  1 star

Disappointed that instead of updating, they make a second app with actual feature updates. Purchasing in-app upgrades was a complete waste. Do not bother with this app or it’s successor.


Afterlight 2  M7G_  2 star

I love this app. But at least Make your old users who bought Afterlight 1 able to upgrade to Afterlight 2 for free!!


So I paid for this one and now it’s free and the new one I have to buy it too  Lmsu18  1 star

That’s not fear, that I have to pay again for an app that’s has all the new stuff meanwhile this one is free!!!

Dragonoid 38

Wow  Dragonoid 38  2 star

it's kind of BS how I paid the full price for after light 1 and now since it's the after light 5anniversary they're just gonna make after light 1 free and make a whole brand new one and better. I feel like us who pad for the first should get the after light 2 for free or add a bunch of new features into after light one. very disappointed...


Massively Dissappointing  RiaanJones  1 star

Great app, in fact I had no need for any other app!! But I PAID for this app and some IAP and now you give it for free!! Ridiculous!
