The best B&W photo editor on the App Store. Stunning Black and White filters & effects. "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. When you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls." - Anon Carbon is the ultimate addition to your B&W arsenal. An uncluttered app with stunning monochrome filters that will take your work to the next level. Developed in partnership with a collective of professional photographers, Carbon's minimal feature set allows you to hone in on what is most important in the world of black and white.

  • Could be better

    3.99 for each filter you want. I don't understand why I would pay 3.99 for something I can't try first and for something that already exists on another app that is free.
  • Why oh why?

    By Glen Campbell
    Beautiful app, works great, except it’s unusable in landscape mode. Why do otherwise brilliant developers persist in releasing iPad apps that only work in portrait mode?
  • Not working

    It stopped working for no reason.

    You only get 5 black and white filters and then have to pay for the rest.

    There are plenty of free photo editing apps out there with the same or similar features to this one. The marketing for the app is so good that it makes you believe you're paying for something special or extra but it's honestly not worth it.
  • Favorite editing app

    I love the black and white filters in carbon. I've tried a lot of other photo editing apps and none of them do black and white so well. Sometimes the filters bring out shades that I didn't think were possible without color. Yes, some of the other apps have some more nuanced controls, but the one click b&w filters in this one offer such a variety that it makes creating a black and white photograph super easy. One thing I wish we could do is save favorite filters and also be able to go back directly to the camera roll if we chose the wrong image instead of going to the start. Oh also would love filters for desktop, i'd definetely get some of them. Video editing would be amazing too. Please add it!
  • Stunning app

    By UtahSolitaire
    Love, love, love this beautiful app. The developer has really taken the time to build a gorgeous experience. I've been intimidated by b/w in the past. No more!
  • Makes you want to pay for everything.

  • Beautiful design

    Love the sleek black and white filters, really makes my photos look professional. Looking forward to the next update ! Update: been using this app for a while and I'd say it's become a standard part of my workflow. It's missing some stuff but overall I'm happy with it. No other apps have the diversity of black and white filters that carbon has and this is the key reason I keep coming back. Suggestions for the developers is to add in percentages for the sliders, increase output resolution options, allow us to save editing sequences and also to bulk edit photos. Good stuff so far. Looking forward to the updates!

    Downloaded this app via an ad. If you promote app for free give some real value before you asked to upgrade. I was so disappointed with it so I did not even bother to upgrade.
