Customer Reviews

great tricks and it Works!

This is one of my favorite apps to edit photos when i want the extra effect and Image Tricks Lite & Pro has multitudes of them. (I loved the Lite so much i went Pro) It has great Borders and frames that i haven’t seen anywhere else. A drop down menu with different modes for editing such as Quartz-Utility-Flip Flop- vertical & horizontal which has quick way to Flip Flop images and do perspective correction much easier but with more control than other apps.
Its Posterizing effect is very good, better than apps i’ve used dedicated for that purpose.
I use this app in concert with Pixelmator, and it replaces my need for Photoshop- the Big one i used for years. Many editing apps out there promise more than they can deliver, or they deliver with a crash, this app as with all the ones i’ve used from Belight Software works flawlessly with my Mac.

Superb Image Tricks Pro

Have used this program for quite some time and am totally amazed at its abilities to create awesome effects - all too numerous to count. Excellent software for such a reasonable price. I work with photos and digital paintings professionally and have several of the Adobe products - and STILL I always come back to Image Tricks Pro for additional filters and the ease of use this program offers in creating awesome effects. Well worth the money for anyone. Learning to use this program is a breeze.
I am very very pleased!
Thank you for creating such wonderful software.

Does Many Things Well

What this app does, it does very well. Applies a lot of cool filters and effects. Personally, I would like it if effects, say Gaussian blur, could be applied to part of the image rather than the whole thing.
