Combo Apps/Enlight

Yesterday was the release of Enlight, one of the new and most comprehensive editing apps to come out in 2015. I got a tweet from a reader to check out this new app by Lightricks who also developed Facetune. They sent me a code, so I could write about it and see what I really think with the hefty price tag on it. So let’s talk about this app in detail…

Urban Effects Decals Before and After

You can make some pretty cool and creative edits with Enlight. Like shown up above with these PR images, but what like to know is if you can push this app to extreme editing ?

Recently Added-373

The answer is, YES YOU CAN !!! You can really push this app hard and mix things up. You’re loaded with a lot of different powerful editing tools. Each section of the editing tools has more tools, you can even mask with this Enlight. The only thing is missing is blending modes. It’s the only thing I can really complain about.

The app runs very smooth on my iPhone 6+. You have to ave iOS on your iPhone. I recommend you have an iPhone 5S or higher to run this app. It’s an iPhone only app.

Duo Before and After

Overall Enlight truly a powerful editing app for lots of improvements and future update. It sells for $3.99 in the App Store, so it has a hefty price tag. To be honest I rather paid a hefty price tag on apps. Than pay a bunch of in-app purchases in the future. Now if you’re looking for other creative outlets, then I recommend having this app. What else I like is the app is very user friendly that even a beginner can use this app. So if you’re starting out in mobile editing and looking for your first powerful editing app. Then get this app. I would actually buy Enlight. I’m hoping they will add blends modes and the ability to mask within the blend modes. Again, I do see lots of updates in the future with this app. So it’s really important to write reviews and feedback of what you like to see added to Enlight. I will include all that info too.

You can also follow Enlight on Instagram @enlightapp, Tumblr enlightapp, Facebook Page, Twitter @enlightapp and email them contact@lightricks.com.

I want to thank Lightricks for giving me a code to try and write about their app. I really enjoyed playing with it. If you have any questions please leave comments or email me ashcrofr54@gmail.com. Have a great day and see you soon.

    I really want this app, but as you said is a rather expensive app to begin with, but if it don’t have any in-app purchases maybe it’s worth it. I think I’ll buy it afterall. Thanks for the post! Bye!!!

    I like this app! Thank you for the information.

    If I already have most editing apps out there, will this one really do anything better or different than what’s already available?

    I purchased Enlight yesterday and I’m very happy with it. It’s packed with all things cool to edit your pictures with. As you’ve already mentioned, blending would be nice to have. The only blending I saw within the app is when you add text to a picture. Last, but not least, I’m loving the icon.

    I was just looking at it in the appstore but was not sure about getting it. Now I changed my mind. Thank you!!

    First of all, I have probably as many of these apps as Tina, the last thing I need is more app debris to clutter up my cyber life, seeing as I already only use a small fraction of my purchased apps on any regular badis.. However, I really think this app is worth it, and as mentioned in the article, there are so many facets to this app, I know I’ve barely scratched the surface with (what I refer to as an “onion app,” due to its many layers/functions that continue to surprise me even long after I’ve been using the app). So far, two things stand out to me that set this app apart from the large majority:
    1. Its incredibly broad scope. Like the post implies, it does just about anything, with the blending, being an unfortunate exception. It’s amazing how much more convenient it is to have this stuff so streamlined. This app will probably replace half a dozen or so of my other apps.., although it’s too early to tell what that will look like.
    2. I’m really, really digging the 3-d/perspective edit options (much like instagram’s, and a few others, but this is surprisingly rare in most intensive editing apps), as well as the “painterly” options. I love my painting apps, and I’ve never seen such a successful fusion of a robust editing app with this type of edit – an edit step that I often think of as a kind of novelty or a more specialized final step. This app has successfully integrated many paint edit options in a highly efficient and useful manner. These two edit abilities make this an exceptionally useful app, well worth the money, in my opinion (hell, I just ate a four dollar chicken wrap before writing this comment, so I can certainly stretch that same amount of money for something I can use indefinitely)!
    And last but certainly not least, when a developer of a high quality app, such as Facetune, creates something new, I’m much more prone to take the leap, even when the cost is a bit more because a) I want to support these developers, as well as reward their hard work, and b) When I come across a developer that I know creates solid, high-quality apps, I consider this somewhat of a lucky break, and I’m much more willing to take the chance on something that is way more likely to have the great qualities of a top tier app, than a pretty package which I have no idea what the company or the software is about. I consider Facetune to be such an app, so with the Combo_apps positive review AND the name behind the product, I considered this a fairly easy decision on my part! Thank you yet again, @Combo_apps, for strengthening my photo-editing arsenal! 😉
