Thx Apple


Due to Apple’s system security and sandboxing, if you buy this app from Mac Store, you won’t be able to use it as an extention for Lightroom and Photoshop!i should’ve paid extra £10 and buy it from MacPhun instead.Paid £55.0 for software i can’t use the way i intended to.Well done Apple.
If you planning to use it with Lightroom and Photoshop, stay away from this Purchase!Buy it from their website!


After i contacted their support team they sorted my problem straight away.5 stars from now on as this is briliant piece of software.
