Back when Kelvin was just another way of measuring temperature and Valencia was somewhere you wanted to go on spring break, the first photo-editing app, Hipstamatic, was not only the clear choice for photo editing—it was the only one.
Ten years ago, in the pre-Instagram era (from here on known as "B.I.," or "Before Instagram"), photo editing was something only graphic designers and the super artsy girl on your block did. That is, until the app Hipstamatic allowed anyone with a smartphone to fiddle with the colors, brightness, exposure and fade settings on their snaps, all with the tap of a thumb. It was one of the first apps ever, and the first photo-editing app. Period.
