Advanced tools to create fresh, colorful photos

{right in your pocket}

400+ 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.


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.
