It’s finally here!! A Color Story is now available in the iOS App Store and it’s FREE!
If you want to go frantically download it RIGHT NOW, we get it…we can wait.
Here are the main features and some examples of how we have been using A Color Story. All the photos below have been edited using only the app:
OVER 100 FRESH, COLORFUL FILTERS
We were able to replicate our favorite color balancing techniques from Photoshop exactly in this app, making a wide range of filters that can be used as 1-tap editing for your photos!

One of our top priorities was creating filters that make your colors REALLY pop. And with so many options to choose from, there are a ton of really interesting variations within the packs! This lends itself to a LOT of creative freedom!
*Image by @Laura_Elizabeth edited with Summer from the Chroma pack (yes, just one tap, and it makes such a HUGE difference!)
A lot of filters we’ve used in the past change, tint or dull color instead of enhancing it. It was extremely important to us to create filters that enhance color, rather than covering it up!
OVER 20 FREE TOOLS, INCLUDING CURVES
And for the photos that need just a little more fine-tuning, we’ve included over 20 tools that you can use to get it exactly right—including fully functioning curves that even allow you to target RGB. All of the tools in the app come completely free without purchasing a thing.

When it comes to iPhone photos, there’s no such thing as “perfect lighting”. It always needs a bit of a boost! So the go-to tools make it really easy to brighten your photo along with the many filters that brighten for you.

OVER 40 MOVABLE EFFECTS
We have three really cool effects packs: Flare & Bokeh, Light Leaks and Color Fog. These effects are built from multiple layers of shapes and color blending at different modes to make them truly part of your photo. And each of these effects can be moved and rotated with your fingers, so you can customize your photos and make them look and feel natural.
CREATE AND SAVE CUSTOM FILTERS
Like the edits you just made? Save them as your own custom filter at any point. The history menu in the bottom left will always help you keep track of your edits, and the SAVED feature will let you repeat a whole set of steps on a new photo with just one tap.
If you haven’t seen our video yet, you can get a feel for all the functionality here!

*Android version coming SOON. It’s in the final stages of testing now. We’re really excited to launch that version as well!
**Some people are having trouble with in-app camera access. Apple has made some updates to camera functionality in iOS, so make sure you’re on the latest version of iOS, and that should solve the problem. If that or anything else is still giving you any trouble, please email support at email@example.com.
Hey there! I’m loving your app! I wrote about it in my post ‘My favorite photo editing apps’
I love you teamed up with other bloggers and photographer (Love Jeff Mindell and Splendid Rags!) to build something new, something customized for your own style. Congratulations!
Bright colors forever! <3
This looks like an amazing app. Read this post, and the other details post on this app, and I really can’t wait for it to come out on the Android. Please make it soon! <3
I LOVE your app ! I just download it from the french app store (and i bought all the packs – <3 Chroma), and i think it will become my fav’ photo app. You did a great job 🙂 !
PS : The only thing that bothers me is that the app remove the exif/metadata of the pic :(. Do you plan to correct that in a future update ?
This is beautiful! I love it! <3
Downloaded & it looks amazing! Can’t wait to start editing my photos and sharing this creative app. Thanks & Congrats Elsie x

Beautiful app, but closes alone in Iphone 4!
I already love this app! It’s wonderful! Recently I wrote a blog post about it (it’s in Portuguese because I’m Brazilian), I love it so much! xx

Amazing app! I am having difficulty on my iphone 4 seeing the top of the screen and pushing the “Done” button, and saving the steps to share to instagram.
LOVE THE APP!!
It would be nice to come out with video tutorials on how to use it 🙂
I’ve been waiting so long to download this app! Downloading right now!
This app is FABULOUS! Thank you so much for creating it and filling the need I’ve had for clarity and color without oversaturation! I’ve blogged about it to the 3 people that follow me (including my mom). Ha! I have a smidge more reach on instagram, so I posted there also, and I pinned the link. You have a new follower for life. 🙂
I’m stuck with download, does not work.
so excited for the droid version. You will be my bff!!
I *can’t* wait for the Android version. So excited!
I cannot wait for the android app!!! This is exactly what I had been looking for in a photo-editing app…so fresh and clean. You guys rock! =)
thank you! i am pretty excited to have something else along side it.
the examples are great, but they are so small- it would be nice to have larger images with filter names, etc.
LOVE the app!!! great job!
hands down, your best app yet 🙂
loved & bought both of your older ones, but you’re spot on with this – it does simulate more photoshop gestures and adjustments than ever before. starting a slow clap all on my own over here!
Wohoo!! Thanks Heather!
