Shift 2.0 allows you to create thousands of custom photo filters by combining textures, color overlays, and blends to produce stylish effects like grain, vintage, light leaks, and high contrast black and whites. Completely redone from the ground up, Shift 2.0 gives you full control over each element of the photo filter to achieve beautiful and unique finish to your photos.


Shift 2.0 is preloaded with 37 original textures that add film grain, dust, and light leaks that can be repositioned, scaled, rotated, and repeated to your heart's content. The strength of the texture can also be adjusted separately from the strength of the color overlays, meaning you can decide whether the texture, color, or both takes the main stage. Complete texture manipulation like this is the first in the realm of photo filtering.

Colors Overlays

Shift 2.0 provides striking color overlay presets that can be easily tweaked and customized. In its most basic form, color overlays can be a single color, which changes the tone of the entire picture. Color gradients that combine the overlay color from one to another provide an even more stunning look, simulating effects like light leaks or the look or vintage film.

Shift 2.0's innovative approach to color gradients comes in two flavors - two-point control or three-point control. Each individual point, which represents the focus of each color, can be moved, repositioned, rotated, and zoomed allowing for even more control of how the colors fade into each other, producing incredible outcomes.


Blends bring everything together by combining the original photo with the color overlay and texture. Every blend produces a different result - switching between them will produce another entirely different effect even with the same color overlay and texture. Altogether, Shift 2.0 has seven blend modes including standard Photoshop favorites such as multiply, overlay, additive, and screen, as well as custom blends like desaturate and psychedelic.


Even though creating custom filters that are perfect for each photo is half the fun, favorites let you save and name their go-tos for quick and easy access for the next photo. Of course, the favorites can be adjusted themselves and be used as a starting point for yet another custom filter. There is no limit to the number of favorites that can be saved.

Apps need to be updated

Purchased the App Bundle and found that 3 of the 6 apps have not been updated to support the current authorization method to grant access to the photo library. This API has been in place over two years so this means no updates from developer during this period. Developer is selling the app but not updating to the newest requirements imposed by Apple. This is dishonest. Fix it or pull it from the App Store.

Not only is Shift an excellent App, it is easy to use, has many super applications that work with your photos to produce awesome results...offers saving your finished product...and much, much more.

If you are just patient with Shift, and work with it for a time, you will soon learn the way to produce beautiful results on all your photos.

I use Shift and the Company's other super products. I've had them in my 'Art Pack' since they first came out. They never disappoint.

FYI, I also have obtained wonderful results with Shift and the Company's other great Apps on my paintings and have achieved fantastic results...and many compliments on my Art Works...enhanced by Pixite's Apps.

Truly, this is one of my finest go to Apps and I highly recommend their Shift App and their other Apps too.
