NOTE: It is highly recommended people purchase Filterstorm Neue rather than Filterstorm. Future development has moved to Filterstorm Neue. This app will continue to receive bug fixes.

Filterstorm has been designed from the ground up to meet your iPad and iPhone photo editing needs. Using a uniquely crafted touch interface, Filterstorm allows for more intuitive editing than its desktop counterparts with a toolset designed for serious photography. A favorite of Photojournalists, Filterstorm is at home in a professional workflow, or for anyone who simply wants to get the most out of their pictures while on the road.

Filterstorm contains a suite of powerful tools including layers, curves manipulation, color correction abilities, noise reduction, sharpening, vignetting, and black and white conversion fine-tuning. It also includes the powerful ability to adjust masks by brush, color range, gradient, and vignettes.

Tutorial videos are available at and are linked to from within the app.

Recommended by "Rough Guide to the iPad"

"Filterstorm was designed for the iPad from the beginning, and is a study in limitation and excellence." - App Craver

"While Filterstorm certainly won’t replace your image-optimization workflow on your desktop computer, it can prove useful (and fun) enough that you will want to put it to use for quick adjustments to fine-tune an image you want to share via your iPad. " - Digital Photo Pro

Don't Abandon...

I really love this app, I have used it so many times to photoshop hilarious photos of my coworkers on the fly... Now I see you decided to reinvent the app in what seems to be some sort of money grabbing attempt. I shouldn't have to essentially re-buy the app again. If it is an improvement than update this app, instead you force your old customer base to re purchase which is not cool :/

Love this version!

Honestly don't bother with the neue because this one is fantastic and could be better if the creator ditched the other one and updated this one more frequently. This is what I recommend to my friends who have also purchased and loved. Please don't give up on this, listen to your feedback. This is what we want! Not the neue.

Love this Classic

Much better than the Neue by far. I hope you continue to improve this app, especially to make saving as fast as the Neue, please! I know that I'm not alone in preferring this classic version. I don't want you to abandon this. Keep making it better!!
