Every Mac user I know has thousands of photos stuffed into iPhoto. It’s usually a collection of the good, the bad, and the ugly. Instead of deleting bad photos, we Mac users tend to keep everything. How can you improve ugly to bad, or bad to good?
PhotoStyler is a Mac photo enhancement app. Think of the tools in iPhoto. Now think what you could do with even more tools, but all of them point and click and slide.
Photoshop may be the king of photo image enhancement but the learning curve is not for the faint of heart. PhotoStyler gives your photos professional looking effects with point and click tools, dozens of presets, batch processing, and tools, more tools, and still more tools.
Take a look at how easy it is to add filters and effects to photos.
PhotoStyler comes with built-in editors that make your enhancements easier. For example, the Mask Editor gives you options to apply effects to specific portions of an image.
The Caption Editor lets you drop and edit text over an image. Guess what the Crop Editor does. All the tools work in a similar manner. Tools on the right column, image on the left.
Select a tool, make adjustments and view the changes in real time on your Mac’s screen.
My favorites are the presets, which are generously endowed with nearly every function you may need, but gives you the option to create your own.
The Glass Frame Editor creates a special frame for the Glass Frame filter. The Tilt-Shift Editor lets you add blur to different locations on an image, rotate the area, and redefine the image’s size.
You’ll love the Comparator Editor which gives you a split view of an enhanced image with the original.
The end result is that you’re merely a few clicks away from applying professional level enhancements to any photo in your collection.
Caveats? Yes, a few. The interface is drop dead simple to use, but it’s easy to get lost in the filter and effects options. Adding layers is easy so there’s a tendency to go overboard and add too many. Trial and error never seems to end.
But if you want classier looking photos, and you can’t afford either the cost of Photoshop or the long learning curve, PhotoStyler gives you quick results, point and click.
