Filterstorm releases a 'Neue' app

The low-opacity icons and thin, white text fits right in with iOS 7.
With Curve adjustments, Filterstorm Neue goes beyond normal iOS image editing tools.

The folks behind Filterstorm have released a brand new app. Filterstorm Neue offers many of the original's photo editing tools in a clean, iOS 7-esque skin. For beginners, Filterstorm Neue has easy to use photo filters and editing tools and advanced photographers will enjoy the ability to use masks to dodge and burn areas of their images.

Here's a list of some of Filterstorm Neue's editing tools:

  • Black & White
  • Blur/Sharpen
  • Brightness/Contrast
  • Clone
  • Curves
  • Hue, saturation and temperature adjustments
  • Reduce Noise
  • Shadows/Highlights
  • Tone Map
  • Exposure
  • Edit iPhone pictures at full size
  • 10-step undo history when using image tiling

The release of Filterstorm Neue has not been the smoothest for Filterstorm's developer, as fans of the original app looked for specific tools that they loved in the original app. The developer promises that future updates of Filterstorm will include layers, a histogram and the ability to paste photos into the app. Follow Filterstorm's extremely active Twitter account to suggest features for future updates.

Quoted from the developer's description in the app store "Option to open RAW files using DCRaw". I'd be interested to see how well that works. I might download just to check out that feature... (although, honestly, I don't use the original Filterstorm much)

The problem may be with users of the old filterstorm was that they wanted it to replace PS Touch or other layer apps. I didn't see it that way. I used it for what it is good for. People often rate apps for what they are not good at instead of what they are good at. Try using both filterstorms for their strengths and use another app for what filterstorm does not do well. It's the same for all apps. Filterstorm Neue is a winner as is and if the developer does what I think he will, it will soon be at the top of the high end photo editor heap.

Have fun !!!!
