Faded is the premier all-in-one photo editor for iPhone and iPad.

Professional photographers can’t live without it. Amateurs can’t believe how easy it is to look like a pro. Just check out #madewithfaded on Instagram for proof.

No matter what your skill level is, you’ll love Faded’s gorgeous, film-inspired looks, and the powerful editing tools will help you take your creativity to the next level.

Choose from 66 filters for FREE or from 36 premium filters available for purchase. Faded’s custom filters bring the nostalgia and beauty of classic film to your photos. You can preview each one in large grid format.

Group your own edits and adjustments and save them as filters. You can later apply these custom filters—which professional photographers call “actions”—to any photo. You can even apply your custom actions to multiple photos at once and do a “batch” export.

Experiment with color-bursting gradients, light leaks, emulsions, and unique frames to give your photos a one-of-a-kind look. When you want to give your photos more depth and complexity, check out the premium effects.

Maintain complete control of your images. Must-have tools such as manual exposure, hands-free snap shutter countdown, compositional grid or square format, split exposure, focus points, and burst mode ensure that you’ll be ready when the perfect shot presents itself.

Customize your photos with 12 professional, custom adjustments, including fade, highlights, sharpen, exposure, shadows, grain, and others.

Layer an image, solid color, or pattern over your original photo. You can then adjust the opacity, filter, and blending to create truly remarkable pics.

Access your complete adjustment history. Faded’s non-destructive editing enables you to revert back to any point in the editing process and save your adjustments as custom actions.

Perfect your images faster with the help of the app’s clean, intuitive navigation.

Choose from 3 export resolutions and upload your photos directly to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Dropbox, Evernote, and email. You can also simply save to your camera roll in high resolution.

Be sure to tag your photos with #madewithfaded and follow Faded's instagram @madewithfaded to get sneak peeks at new features.

I like the app but


I do like the app. I just wish it had a beefier choice before having to pay for more. It does have some good choices without having to purchase more. I do think filters are getting out of hand, but what developers are doing is selling you a basic version and calling it pro, which is not acceptable, but who's going to stop them? A pro version means it's got everything in there. So, people are buying these "Pro" apps and getting a limited set and not wanting to pay for the better filters. These developers didn't make them; they used a template that someone else made. So people use these "lesser" filter sets which looks like second or third rate jobs and publishing these pictures on the web. It's better if they get a free graphics software, like picasa by Google, which has a button that basically fixes the lighting and coloring in your photo. It's free and a lot better than these other filters.

Brilliant! Customizable! Elegant!


I'm an avid iPhotographer and pride myself on being very discriminating when it comes photo apps. This is hands-down one of the best photo editing apps I've ever used. The features are many and highly customizable. While that is always quite true in this app, the interface is as lovely and simple as they come -- right down to the splash page. This is an elegant piece of programming. When it's this good, I'm happy to spend the $5 for the full set of features.

If I could suggest anything, I would like to see some additional slider controls for enriching the blacks and pulling up the whites (beyond controls for shadows & highlights). Perhaps that can be a part of a future update??

All that said, this is a fantastic app. Happy editing!

Gets better every time!!!


So far I have noticed a MAJOR improvement from the previous version I tried. Almost all glitches have been fixed. Thanks. Really enjoying it now.

Glitches on the iPhone 6plus.
The filters are decent with plenty of options but it's glitchy in the iPhone 6 plus. It's very hard to swipe left or right between options and the side window always tries to open when I swipe left. This is consistently happening whenever I try to change any option and it's very annoying making the app pretty useless. It might take three or four swipes before the option bar finally moved a little.

I also don't like how it doesn't allow you to choose photos from your Favorites folder. This is seriously a big NONO for me since those are the images I care to edit.

Not impressed and I'm glad I tried it but it's no where near snapseed for editing the image or VSCOcam for filters or my new favorite fotograf. If they can only fix those two features I would gladly give it another try. For now it's a no for me.
