What does it do?
Afterglow gives you heaps of new Instagram-like filters plus basic editing tools you'll recognise from software like Adobe Lightroom. The 30 included filters are adjustable so you can adjust just how much "Raven" haze you'd like to put over your photo. There are 12 adjustment tools that allow you to tweak the shadows and saturation of you shot as well as cropping and transformation tools so you can make everything just right. Then, when you're done, the app exports right to Instagram. Your friends will be impressed.
Why do we like it?
After seeing the same old filters over and over and over again, well, we're bored. How many sepia-soaked lunches can you possibly endure before you decide to give up food altogether? Afterglow gives opens the door to a new world of stylised imagery.
