What's New in Version 1.5.5
Some bugs were fixed.
I’ve been wanting something like this.
Nice program. When you first open the program it has some ads for other product. In the middle of the ads is a very nice, short tutorial. So don’t close the little sales pitch window until you read the tutorial. 60 seconds—it shows the location of tools and tells what they do.
Now my first test. I had a picture of my grand niece and I wanted to softly blur everything but her face. Drag and drop to load the picture. The program automatically sets up the focal area. I made a few tiny adjustments to the size and I can immediately see the adjustments in a side by side comparison. Now I can use the tools shown in the tutorial to fine tune my focal and blur areas. There are more adjustments I can make but I am already very happy with my grand niece’s picture.
This is how good software should work. 5 stars for a very nice, useful program!
After Focus 1.5.5 Impression
A useful application that I hope will continue to improve. The controls are good, but it takes some time and experience to get the hang of it, which is to be expected. Some images are better suited for out of focus backgrounds than others, and the responsibility for choosing the right photos lies with the user. Its biggest limitation is the inexplicable size reduction when saving the finished result. This happens when saved in any one of the five file formats, PNG, JPG, TIFF, GIF, or BMP, and you have no say-so about it. Therefore, it can only be used for low-res purposes. My example, an original image 3648 x 2736 pixels, shrunk to 1472 x 1104 pixels. Why? –beats me! Also: the second paragraph of After Focus description here in the App Store says ‘increasing the depth of field’ but should read ‘decreasing the depth of field’ to be correct.
Make common look extraordinary
This app seems pretty straight forward and does what it claims. Once the photo opens in After Focus, the remaining features are quite intuitive and easy to use.
I like the app. The tools are flexible and allow me to customize the blur effects in a lot of different way. It makes common look photo becoming extraordinary new look. Pretty good.
