ImageWell 4 is the fourth generation version of the original ImageWell created 7 years ago. It's been refined and improved based on user feedback and uses the latest technology offered by OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard). It's small and lightweight, yet powerful enough for your everyday image editing needs.

Whether you need to quickly resize a huge digital camera image to the web or to email, or label a screen shot or photo, or add some text and crop an image, ImageWell is the handy editor that you'll keep in your Dock for everyday use.

"This is a great little program for editing images for your blog posts...highly recommend it, well worth it. They've really done a great job; it's a very useful program." - Leo Laporte, TWiT/MacBreak Weekly, Episode 225

Customer Reviews

worth buying twice

I've owned ImageWell for years and like it a lot. In fact, I like it so much that I just purchased it again from the app store, just to send a bit more revenue to the developer. Highly recommended.

Exactly what you need

This is nicely done, I never needed to reach for the help, it's all intuitive and a pleasure to work with.
ImageWell had all the features I need: drawing arrows, writing some text, fiddling with colors and transparency. Just perfect.

Simply Brilliant!

It didn't take long for me to realise that this tool is essential. Don't know how I ever got along without it!

Simple, stable, fun, and very useful.

Thank You.
