Dash of Color FREE lets you give an extra boost of color to any photo that could benefit from that "something extra".

Love it!
“I’m like seriously hooked!!!!”

“makes photos look awesome and its a free app!”

How many times have you looked at a perfectly composed photo and thought that it would look so much better as a classic black and white shot? Or better yet, a black and white with just the right amount of color splashed in for a dramatic effect. Sadly, you have no photography experience and you just can't bring yourself to go to one of those pricey studios or buy expensive, hard to use photo editing software.
With Dash of Color FREE on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, you'll be able to take the same glamorous shots that you're used to and customize the images to give them that dash of color, just like the pros. The best part is that it's easy to use and totally free of charge! Choose an image and Dash of Color will transform it into a classic black and white shot.  Consider this a canvas upon which you will create your masterpiece. Just paint with your finger to add dashes of color in all the right places.

- Simple, yet refined user interface
- NEW Zoom feature!
- Undo (saves your every move from the very beginning)
- Paint in color
- Paint in black & white (to erase)
- Twitter and email integration
- Post your photos to our public gallery to share
your work and see others!

Dash of Color FREE is "goof proof." The controls are easy to use and the "Undo" feature remembers every edit you make. With unlimited "Undo's" you can go back as many times as needed to make changes. Dash of Color FREE offers many of the very same tools and effects that the pros use.  If you think that a certain area requires a smaller brush, just zoom in for detail. If you think that you've made a mistake, or want to see how another color would look in this one's place, no problem. Paint in either color or black and white, to continually alter your shot until you're 100% happy with the final outcome. With the new zoom feature, you can even zoom in to work on more intricate areas with ease! 

You will create professional looking photographs on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, and you'll do it without spending a single penny. Download Dash of Color FREE now and let everyone see the world from your point of view.

Customer Reviews

Not bad

Compared to other reviews, I actually really like this app. Everyone is complaining about there not being a save option (it would be nice) but I just took a screen shot of my finished pic and then went to my photos and cropped it back to size with the new improvements :)). One suggestion though would be to make it to where the color circle could change sizes instead of having to zoom in so much.


The app has potential but doesn't do what it advertises. It doesn't let you pick a color to highlight. For example my nephew. I made his black B&w accentuate his blue eyes. The first time he looked like he'd been in a brawl. Thought I finally found what I was looking for when I got one eye blue but it made the other one orange with no way to change the color. Don't bother.

Almost amazing!

App would be awesome if I could actually save the photos I edited. Once I'm done with the photo and I try to save the picture, turns black and all my work is lost. I'm left with a blank black photo.... :(
