Just installed and still learning it...
This app seems pretty straight forward and does what it claims. I will admit that I did not intuitively understand how to “Drop a photo here” (the only instruction on the app's opening screen) and I was frustrated that there was no text or visual guide to explain that initial step… (Yes, I’m an slow geezer)... But it didn’t take me long to figure out that I can open the source file (where the original photo is saved) to drag and drop the photo, (why can’t I select the file in Finder?). Once the photo opens in Focus 2, the remaining features are quite intuitive and easy to use. Choosing options for saving the edited photo is still a bit perplexing… (I am trying to understand the implications of each option in terms of disk usage and best practices for photo file management). For now, my saved edits go drectly into my dropbox folder to become easily accesible to my jewelry website.
Doesn't work on 2007 MacBook C2D
If I couldn't have tested this on another computer (2009 MacMini C2D), I would have given this program 1 star. It is not only super sluggish, but also fails to render real-time previews on a 2007 MacBook C2D (2GHz CPU, 2GB RAM). When working on an image, a lot of luminance noise is being displayed and one cannot discern the effect of the sliders from this noise. On the MacMini, the program seems to work, but is still less responsive than one would think it should be; compare this to a program like Pixelmator or Acorn, where filters are being displayed in real-time w/o a hitch on either of these machines. I am assuming that the program does not take advantage of GPU-accelerated rendering. Here's to hoping that the developer will be able to significantly improve the usability of the program.
Would love to Rate it, if it only would work….
Let me start off by saying I currently own every other Mcphun application - of which this the my most recent purchase (last night).
All the other apps have worked flawlessly for me. I shoot with a Nikon D800, so my file sizes are massive, and their software handles them very well.
So I was shocked when this app just didn’t work. Not a quality thing, it just does not work. It boots up, but once I load a picture, everything turns to garbage.
This is not an issue with me having an older machine. My Macbook Pro is Apple’s top of the line and fairly new, my OS is El Capitan.
Before I wrote this review, I thought it might be a file size issue, so I also tried on a much smaller file taken with my iPhone - still the same problem.
I’m thinking it’s an OS compatibility issue - I wouldn’t think Macphun would sell something they knew didn’t work - but now reading the other reviews - they should have know - not good.
Unfortunately, until they fix this problem - it’s pure junk as far as I am concerned - I would strongly recommend staying away from it until they update the program to at least where you can load a photo - and rate it based on the merits of how it performs. Right now I can’t even do that.
