Ultralight App Offers Fast & Intuitive iPhone Photo Editing

Are you looking for a free application that provides a fast, easy and intuitive way to edit your photos from iPhone? If so, you should try out the new photo editing application Ultra-light. It’s free to download and provides a unique approach to the basic editing tools. Redefining the concept of “simple but powerful” Ultra-light is a pleasure to use and produces fantastic results. In this article you will discover how Ultra-light application offers a new experience in photo editing iPhone.
22 Filter Presets that you can actually use

Like many other editing applications, Ultra-light that it begins with a collection of filter presets. These are a great way to try some different looks and styles, but they are never limited by them.
The collection of presets is very diverse, and none of them is all an exaggeration. Often, I find that the presets are a bit too hard or even gaudy.

Ultra-light presets are more akin to VSCO Cam is that many of them can be applied and used with little extra adjustment (although you can always make adjustments if desired).
A unique approach to basic adjustment tools

After selecting a preset (including the option of not preset at all) is taken to the main collection of tools fit to further refine the look of the image. This display has a range of basic editing tools.

The interesting thing is that while the tools themselves are pretty basic in their functionality, offer a wider range of control like other collections.

For example, the first tool is to allow you to adjust the brightness of the image, but much focused segments. Through a series of “in-picture” sliders, you can adjust the Black, Low tones, mid tones, high tones and white point.

This means that you selective control over the brightness of each of these tonal levels. This provides a very wide range of control and is similar to a Curves tool, but not that complicated.

You’ll also notice that there are no other brightness or contrast setting separate tools. The reason for this is that you simply do not need this type of control at its disposal.

For example, by reducing the Black Point and raise the white point, you’ll actually be increasing the overall contrast of the picture (again, with a more precise control).
Dynamic Saturation and Temperature Settings

Ultra-light approach to adjust the saturation and color temperature is equally unique. A two-dimensional mode setting “field” can simultaneously adjust the saturation (S) and color temperature (T).

To adjust saturation, slide your finger up or down (up = more saturated and down = less saturated). To adjust the color temperature, swipe left or right (cooler and right = left = warmer).

This approach allows a quick, yet powerful control in these two settings. Also it allows you to really push each of these settings to different ends if desired.
Creative control over color
Another interesting feature is the Coloring tool. This lets you adjust the color palette of the image in various ways.

You can color the entire image with a color of your choice, for example, green, blue, red, etc.

Alternatively, you can use the Color Blacks option to change only the color of dark shades (as shown above). Or you can color only light tones with a white Color option (as shown below).

The adjustment is made using a (red, green and blue) RGB color “wheel”. This feature may not be of much use for most of your images, but which shines is in making small adjustments to the colors of the shadow or highlight areas.

More extreme settings can be used creatively, but probably will not be used by most casual photo editors.
