Max 3248x2432 support for the Desktop version???

Wow… And NOT a good wow either….

I have this App for my iPhone which I love, so I was very excited to see it finally for Mac. It is a very nice iPhone App (few bugs, few crashes and overall it is impressive).

However, I expected MUCH more from the desktop version… Since it is not a camera application, it actually offers LESS than its iPhone counterpart (at least the iPhone version can take pictures!)

-- This Mac application is EXTREMELY limited in its usefulness with a cap on its maximum resolution: 3248x2432 pixels. (Imported higher res pics are downsampled for the final output.)
-- It suffers from one of the biggest drawbacks of its iPhone cousin which is shadow ghosting (darker areas are "forced" into the final exposure with areas of badly sampled color). Typically, increasing the saturation first and then the contrast would solve part of the issue, but the application seems to respond differently than the iPhone version.

I only paid $3.99 for the early launch version (50% off apparently), but it is truly only worth $0.99 at this point.

Perhaps if this application is updated and expanded, it will be worth a full $8. But I don't anticipate that for a loooong time.

Come on Pictional, get with the program and prove me wrong. :(

No support and not compatiable with Canon

My T2i can bracket the f stops no problem, but the 2 or 3 photos it shoots can not be merged at all with this app. It says that the images are of different sizes, and if they mean megabites, then yes they are because they are. However, there’s no way I know of to get the photos to be the same size when they are different due to the bracketing within the camera. The “help” is just a small general use description and I sent an email to the developers. If they can provide a solution I will revise this review, but at this point I’m unable to use this at all.

I can’t get this to work

I can import 3 images (+1 stop and average) and cant get the program to produce a decent output. I get better results by merely superimposing the pictures than by “aligning” them using the program.
I have used easy photos of the recent red moon 9where there is only one circle and nothing else) and the app can’t align them
