Friday Freebies are becoming more difficult to find among the tens of thousands of Mac apps available. Free apps abound, yes, but far too many such apps are exercises in futility, perform very little useful utility, and often do not justify the price (they’re free, so what does that say?).
This week I found one for the Friday Freebie grab bag. It does what many of us would like to do but find cumbersome inside a more complex Mac graphic or photo enhancement app, but does it with a few simple clicks.
What’s the trick? Slice and dice photos. It’s cool, works great, and even the app’s name is slick. Simple Slicero.
All it does is slice a photo. Like this.
Drop in a photo or image. Select the angle. Select the quantity (number of slices). Select horizontal, vertical, or random angle.
That’s it. Simple Slicero slices the photo into the desired number of slices and all the slices are saved to a folder (you choose the location).
Here’s the first question that came to mind when I tried out Simple Slicero on my Mac.
Who needs this?
Anyone who creates photo collages for advertising, promotions, logos, and the like, or anyone who just wants a different, creative look but doesn’t want to put much effort into it. Simple Slicero is free so there’s not much to not like.
As it turns out, this slicing and dicing method is more popular than I thought, and that triggered a quick look back to Photo Samurai for the Mac which offers even more slicing and dicing styles, but for a nominal price.
Photo Samurai hasn’t been updated in awhile but it still works on my Mac running OS X El Capitan.
