Customer Reviews

can't really complain too much for the price...

This is a very simple app that does exactly what it says. Pretty intuitive, my only 'issues' are minor ones...such as: the sizing options on the brush tool bar- unless a photo is zoomed extremely close up, you get a very small circle to work with on panned out images. It can be somewhat tedious if you have a large area to colorize, i.e. a field of flowers that takes up half the frame. This is where my other 'issue' is related. There's no fill option, and that would come in really handy for large chunks of a photo instead of having to slowly swipe over every inch. I sometimes experience freezing up issues when a photo is zoomed in. I have had to quit and re open quite a few times but for the most part it works well and does a good enough job.

Lots of fun!!!

I love this app. It is simple to use on my MacBook Pro. My whole family likes to use it and fight for the computer when it's out of my hands. I think adding an option to be able to edit the color of objects once the colorize feature has been used would set this apart from other apps.

Fun to add color back into any picture that was processed.

Take any photo, re-colors it black and white and then you pick which parts of the picture you want to restore the original color too. Some people have complained you can't "change" the color. That's not the purpose of this app. Does exactly what it says. Fun to play with.
