Image editor Afterlight makes the jump from iOS to Windows Phone


Fantasia Painter Free is I think the best photo editing app. Also Camera 360 (both) have nice features

Have you used Afterlight?  I will probably add it to my arsenal. ha ha. I have sooooo many photo editing apps and I find little things that I like about them all.

Yes...such an underappreciated app! I use it more than any other. The amount of options are insane and it is laid out so well that is is also very ease to use. Everything is presented in a way that you will never miss a feature as some other apps take you through stages of editing whereas with Fantasia it's all just there ready to access. And it's FREE! AMAZING DEV!!! 5*

I have! ha ha.  I use a combination of a lot of them: Fhotoroom, Adobe, Fantasia are usually my go to choices but I like features of other editors too. 

It definitely can't be creative studio. Its a normal editing app, nothing special. Fantasia painter is good though, I still haven't found any app better than that

Everyone at least try it out. The more we use these apps the more apps we get. I download apps and try them for a few days just to get a good feel for it. If it sucks, I delete and try another couple. This I'll probably buy if the trial is good. It looks useful.

Great to see on WP! Thank you developers. My favorite editor on Android/IOS is snapseed. But I dont see their parent company ever letting us get it. That's a rant for a different thread though. Very glad to have this great app.

App is very good.. I liked all the features so purchased (I'm wondering why my money was not deducted from my account)..

But it's very buggy and very very very very slow.. It takes too much time to save the edited images.. Also there is no landscape view.. The app needs lots of updates.. Hope the developers are working on it..

I emailed Pixlr and they said that they've been getting a lot of requests for Windows mobile (that's what they called it) and they've put it on their "roadmap" for future support.  I'm guessing if more people request it, that they might move it up the roadmap.

Another app that lessens the gap. I am getting so weary of articles with headlines like "Windows Phone: the best mobile OS no one should buy." The guy then goes on about how he thankfully gave up using WP for a week and then blamed Microsoft for the lack of Google apps. How he can't broadcast to the Chromecast dongle. Sawdust for brains and give up all pretense of REALLY trying something out.


"This is a great phone, but no one should buy it." Geez, with help like that, what could go wrong?

i have in my #lumia1020

Do we really need yet another photo editor? It seems innovative app development has stalled of late. Endless clones fill the reviews....

Would be interesting to see and compare the best apps out there. I personally find Fhotoroom to be the best choice.

You guys should do an app comparison on photo editing apps.. Both free and paid..

I know you've done one before but that one didn't really have a lot back then..
