App of the Week: Afterglow

Sarah Georges on January 18, 2013

What is it?
Afterglow is a photo editor for iPhone. Choose from 30 filters, a range of textures, frames and editing tools. When you’re done, share your photo with your social network, email it or save it to your camera roll, all from within the app.



Why we like it
I like this app because it’s quick and allows me to share my photos instantly from within the app. The Afterglow app not only has more filters than Instagram, but it allows you to adjust exposure, highlight, saturation, and generally gives you more control over the look and feel of your photos. The frame option pairs your photos perfectly with Instagram, so you know they’ll be the correct size if you choose to share them there.

Get it if..
You like the concept of instagram but want more control over your photos with more editing tools and filters.
