“Some of the Light Hits are so subtle but add such a massive improvement to photos. I love that they don’t necessarily scream “Presets!” but feel more natural in that you would never know it was added in post.” - Peter McKinnon
"Blurring off the edge of the photo can add an organic element to the photo or easily draw the eye to a particular part of the image. Lens Distortions gives you the power and freedom to do this easily and effectively... just adding a hint of subtle mood to your Instagram is extremely easy." - Fstoppers
"The app is very easy to use because it wasn’t developed to be an all-in-one editing suite. It does only one thing (add lens/light effects to your photos), but it does it amazingly well." - iPhone Photography School
Frame your subject with elegant glass textures. Punctuate your shots with natural sunlight and lens flares. Create atmospheric depth with genuine rain or fog.
Lens Distortion gives you the highest quality ingredients to craft the look you want.
All of the overlays are created by optically-capturing real-world elements. They are displayed in gallery view, which allows you to see all the filters side-by-side and select the best one for your image.
You can easily make an effect stand out for a bold look or blend in for just the right amount of subtle complexity. Sometimes the best effects are ones no one knows you added… Lens Distortions signature effects are hiding in plain sight in the images of many of today’s top photographers.

Add striking optical light effects and lens flares to distort your photos to perfection.
Not Worth The Price
This app has a single major flaw that makes it essentially unusable. You can't zoom the base, background image to assist with placing the overlay effect. You're stuck with your image crammed full scale onto the screen of your iPhone. Also, the app only works in portrait mode on the phone. So, you can't rotate the phone to work in landscape orientation, even if you're working on an image that was taken in landscape orientation. As a result, the finished product is, well, amateurish at best. Now, of course we're talking about using an app to overlay false effects onto an image. But if you want your results to look even remotely realistic, precise placement of the effect matters. And If you're lucky enough to be able to place your effect in the right spot, you can almost guarantee that, 9 times out of 10 when you lift your finger from the screen, the effect will move, if only just a little bit. That's not something one would expect from a subscription-based app that costs $12 per year to use. I recommend looking elsewhere.
Please make an iPad app or update filter qualities! :)
Big fan of this app, I love it so much definitely brings my photos to life and really sets my photos apart from other artists in he social media world only negative is I wish that they had an app specially designed for the iPad because using the iPhone app on the iPad can distort the photo sometimes the photo doesn’t look as sharp as it should.
Obviously it’s not a professional app but if you are looking for something to make your iPhone pics cooler 10/10 would recommend this app!
