Stackables is our App of the Day. Both the iPhone and the iPad versions are FREE right now for a limited time, down a couple bucks from their regular price of $1.99 each. Two bucks is two bucks. If you’re missing the Grunge filter from the the recent Snapseed update, this app may tide you over until the masses revolt and Google relents…. More and a link after the break.

Stackables is a very slick and comprehensive effects layering and blending app. It’s packed with over 200 effects crafted by photographer Dirk Wuestenhagen. It lets you stack and rearrange layers of grunge overlays, color overlays, patterns and other adjustments — even your own photos. In this regard, it’s a lot like popular textures app Mextures.

Here’s where Stackables gets cool, though. Stackables also has a full selection of image adjustment tools such as White Balance, Color Balance, Vignette, Grain, Blur, and more. These tools are added as layers, giving you unprecedented control over color and tonal levels in your composition. It’s similar to Adjustment Layers in Adobe Photoshop Desktop and many photographers and retouchers (myself included) use this workflow as a powerful way to fine-tune adjustments.

Stackables supports full resolution or more on all of the latest devices. Both versions are free for the next day or so. Grab ’em now.
