A Color Story
BRING OUT THE COLOUR IN YOUR PHOTOS Free with IAP | acolorstory.com COLOR STORY IS a popular photography app that focuses on color effects and filters. It’s a crowded market, but Color Story is at least free to download, with in–app purchases that are entirely optional. Even so, its interface is clean and the free tools it does include will satisfy most casual users of interest.
The app starts by allowing you to import photos or videos (up to 60 seconds), and version 2.0 introduced a Batch option that allows you to apply effects to multiple files all at once..
The editing window provides four sets of tools — adjustments, filters, effects, and colors, and a set of cropping and rotation tools. The free filters and effects are fairly limited with basics such as ‘color pop’ and lens–flares. However, the color adjustment tools are quite versatile, allowing you to adjust color curves, shadows, tints, and hue. Then there’s a new Selective Edit feature that allows you to adjust specific areas of a photo, rather than the entire photo all at once. The emphasis on in–app purchases might be highly irritating at times, but the versatile free tools provided by Color Story should help to keep it at the top of the App Store rankings for quite a while.
