Ratings and Reviews
Not intuitive, a bit buggy
I think this program has a lot of promise, but I would still consider it a beta at this stage. Firstly, the method for specifying the area of focus is very counter intuitive. Instead of simply clicking on an area and dragging, one has to click, release, drag, then click again to determine the range of focus. It took me awhile to get the hang of this and it seems totally unnecessary. I would also like to be able to control the amount of vignetting on an image. Right now it is either on or off. I have experienced several annoying crashes with this version and I look forward to a quick bug update.
Strangely, the iPhone and the other free app for the Mac works much better than this paid app. The way you position the point of tilt-shift is extremely counter-intuitive. I kept clicking and trying to drag the circle but ended up shifting my point of focus; very frustrating. The app didn't crash on me, like it did for others, so at least that works. The quality of the photos looks a bit off although when you save the image and open it in Preview, it seems alright. All said, if I could return this app, I would unless a significant update is in the works.
Works great - a must have app for photographers
This app is a real bargain - it works great and has a very simple interface. I tested the demo version with a number of photos I have and liked the results, so I purchased the full version through the App Store. Everything works flawless and my images look fantastic. I took several very average photos of a nearby waterfall and turned them into something really amazing.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
