A Color Story Review! – A Beautiful Mess

4 stars/93 votes

This is one of the best apps in my opinion for editing and adding filters to photos on your mobile device. The only thing I wish it had was the ability to erase places on your edits where you may not want a filter or effect. But A ColorStory is simply the best.

Established in 2016, Elsie Larson and Emma Chapman, the co-founder A Color Story and creates A Beautiful Mess.

ADVANCED TOOLS TO CREATE FRESH, COLORFUL PHOTOS
{right in your pocket}

300+ FILTERS
Instead of filtering your photos to look all the same, A Color Story filters aim to enhance the color you’ve chosen in your composition. Bright whites, rich color, and clean adjustments.

100+ EFFECTS
Add, rotate and drag a photo effect to the perfect position. These light leaks, flares, color fogs, and grain use multiple layers and blend modes to become truly part of your photo.

20+ TOOLS
Sometimes a photo needs a little more fine-tuning than any filter can provide, so A Color Story honed in on the most useful editing tools to get it just right, including fully functioning curves and HSL.

SAVED
Like all the adjustments you just made? At any time, you can save your editing steps to make your own custom filter to use on any photo or video.

DESKTOP
Lightroom Presets and Photoshop Actions professionally crafted to find your photos’ best colors.
