Editors' Notes

Plenty of photo-editing apps will help you apply dreamy vintage-style filters to your pictures, but A Color Story is all about making images crackle with intensity and life. From heightening bold hues to adding wild lens flares, there are dozens upon dozens of filters, creative effects, and powerful tweaking tools in this gorgeous, well-rounded app. Your most prized photo transformations can even be saved as custom filters to use again and again.

The only photo editing app you need


I’ve used A Color Story since it launched and I’ve honestly never stuck with using a single app for so long. It’s got everything I need in one place (especially with the latest updates for batch editing and video/boomerang editing!) - way more than just pretty filters.
Having said that, the filters are BRILLIANT. I have downloaded most of the filter packs, and although I don’t use all of them, the favouriting function makes it really easy to edit quickly using only the ones that match my style. I always struggled to find apps with the kind of filters I liked - I didn’t want to make my photos seem “moody” or “vintage”, I wanted bright whites and bold colours, and this app is perfect for that (it does do moody and vintage too if you’re so inclined!)

My Go To Editor


I literally adore this app & use it daily to enhance my photos. You can save your favourite filters and get to create your own style so your photos have continuity! Some reviews say it’s crap - it’s really not. You have to adjust the amount of a filter based on your original images (if super dark use same filter twice) or adjust manually to a level exposure then add a filter and most of the time a combo of filters works best. Worth every penny and I’ve bought the seasons app which I use January on all my outdoor photos so is worth the small cost. 😊
