Nice filters but where’s the clipboard?

You can do things with this app that I haven’t seen in any other (I don’t use Photoshop). You can restore a little texture, for example, to skin that has been over-smoothed. So I use Intensify quite a bit.

But I was surprised to find that it doesn’t support the clipboard. No copy or paste! Since I do most of my basic editing in GraphicConverter, I’d like to copy an image over to Intensify, work on it there, and then copy and paste back into GKon, just as I used to be able to do in Snapheal before it too was hobbled. I don’t see any way to do that. So instead I have to save the file, open it in Intensify, edit it, export it (you can’t save except in the app’s own format), re-open it in GKon… I’ll do it, but time’s a-wastin’…

So: 3 stars for an otherwise useful and good-looking app.

Very good software!

Context: I use Photos only with my iPhone 5s and Mac. Intensify has a moderate learning curve and very good presets. In general, I was able to achieve my goals of bringing out shadows and color in shadows. It did “crash” twice after leaving Intensify and going back into Photos, but it had little to no impact on my user experience. MacPhun is clearly committed to the Mac and iOS, thus I can only assume this software will get better, particularly as more and more people use Photos. The convenience of Photos integration between iOS, Mac and iCloud is pretty awesome.

Excellent Product and Customer Support!

Downloaded Intensify last evening and ran into a snag getting it to open. Within 2 minutes of emailing MacPhun I had the issue resolved, It has operated flawless since. It offers all the tools needed to turn a good photograph into a great photograph for a beginner and even a seasoned vet photographer. This is a great investment for someone who is learning photography but is hessitent on dropping $99 on Adobe Photoshop or other more expensive programs right away.
