Everyone knows that the best pictures are the ones that look like they didn't have any photo-editing done to them whatsoever. That's where the Litely app comes in, this photo-editing app uses simple color and lighting filters to improve images and boost their natural beauty.

Sometimes photo-editing apps over-saturate images leaving them with an over-done and a highly obvious editing feel. Photographer Cole Rise -- the man that created the Sutro, Sierra and Hudson Instagram filters -- created the Litely app as a subtle photo-editing app for smartphone photos. The app combines Lightroom, Aperture and Photoshop as tools users can use to slightly enhance their photos at the pixel-level. When your photos are beautifully and elegantly edited, no one will be able to tell that that they weren't naturally taken.
