Wonderful - Get It ✨

I really enjoy using this app. It makes coloring photos, whether it is adding color or pulling out the color that is already there, very easy. It's not the type of app that I am going to be using on a daily basis, but when I do want to use it, I don't have to remember a whole bunch of arcane commands. Most of it is just click.

This brings me to my only real complaint, which has more to do with Macphun than ColorStrokes. Macphun has a number of great higher end apps (my photo workspace is becoming a Macphun environment). It would be great if all the apps that have common maneuvers like fit to screen, 100% size image, before and after, all used the same keyboard shortcuts. ColorStrokes seems to be the worse offender of this inconsistency. This is the only reason I am giving 4.5 stars instead of 5. It a wonderful stand-alone app/utility, however and easily worth the price.

Just what I wanted!

I am having loads of fun with this app. I am recoloring photos in an artsy kind of way, learning more each time I use it. The response from people who have seen my work is very positive. Makes it look like it was a lot more intricate than it is. And I can get really detailed by enlarging the picture significantly and making the brush really small. I am going to get this app on my iPad as well. You can’t share it, but for the price I don’t mind.


I went looking for something like I’d been using Color Splash on my phone and BAM here it is but better and High Resolution! Great Easy to use and some awesome additional effects to make it even better. And for about the same price as a phone app! Yay!
