After Light Blog Post Image

One of the best Instagram apps around!

A picture is worth a thousand words. But sometimes our photos come out looking, well not so amazing. Not all of us are professional photographers or have access to expensive photo editing software. Or, maybe you just want to share a moment instantaneously without having to do a bunch of tweaks and edits on a computer. Luckily, there are tons of apps out there that let us manipulate and enhance our photos to create stunning images.

I’ve tested quite a few photo-editing apps and I keep coming back to the Afterlight app. This app offers so many wonderful features, here are just a few of my favorites.

Filters – This app has tons of them; 74 fully-adjustable filters to be exact. The ‘Original’ pack (which comes with the app) are creatively crafted to enhance any type of photo. You can make in-app purchases to grab the other filter packs for more options.

Textures – Afterlight allows you to add a range of real and natural light leaks, dust particles, and scratchy film textures to give your photo an antique, rustic feel.

Probably my favorite feature of this app is the ability to overlap photos. Similar to the controls in Photoshop, you can choose a range of effects like screen, overlay, soft light, etc., all of which are fully-adjustable.

Last but not least, frames. You can choose from lots of different shapes as well as letters, to really make your photo stand out. You can even add a pattern to the frame!

Once you’ve created your masterpiece you can upload your photo to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Email, etc. directly in the app.

Whether your a business or just a photo enthusiast, the Afterlight app is definitely a tool you should have. It’s only $0.99, and trust me you won’t be disappointed with all of the wonderful features it has to offer!  Give it a try and let your creativity run wild!
