Seasoned and Surprised

At sixty-four, I am a seasoned designer, involved with visual arts, and photography, since college. I’ve used everything computers offer, on both platforms, for photo and graphic arts, since the early nineties. I’ve never liked effects much because they usually overdo it, or fall short of their intended result. I use Adobe Photoshop CC regularly, but rarely ever get what I am looking for with special effects. I use them frequently, but they never seem to take an image to the limit of its improvement, forcing me to do a lot of further time consuming hand work. NOT SO WITH INTENSIFY!! This application delivers. On the first test, I took a mundane ordinary photograph, from a cloudy day, with little or no interest. Going down the list of Default presets, one after another transformed the image into many different completed images, each of which has visible stopping power. This application delivers way more than it promises, because you don’t have to spend time tweaking settings. The presets do it all. But you can also tweak beyond them if you need to. This is best photo enhancing utility I’ve ever used, and I’ve used them all extensively. Macphun developers really understand what makes photographic images the best they can be. THANK YOU!!

The app that started all my Macphun

When I started to see photo sharing apps get more and more mature photo filters, I started to wish to add to my arsenal of basic Adobe Photoshop with something that is more “Instagram” easy. This app turned out to be much more once I found my favorite set of presets and got use to applying them in the best order. Its become a standard for a lot of my photos that I intentionally want to show quality art work via various editing techniques.

Keep up the good work Macphun. I love the targed interfaces and actual focus it seems you put into each of your suite of targeted photo editing applications. If you give their products a chance, they can really grow on you. Thanks for putting Intensify on sale in the past when I bought it so many months ago. That was all I needed to get started.

Takes the headache out of photo editing.

This is the consumer edition of Macphun's professional tool (The Pro version also works as a Photoshop plugin). The many presets allow you to find the specific look you’re after. Then you can tweek them to get the exact look you’re after. The results are of proffesional quality. And the Macphun website has lots of free tutorials taught by professional photographers. I don’t know of any other Mac photography tool that gives you this much power, at such a low price.

Since this tool began it’s life as a specilized plugin, it is not a complete photo editing platform. You’ll want to look at Snapheal if you need to repair damaged photos or remove blemishes. But Intensify is really great at what it does - making bland images look good, and good images look great. This is not a simple “filter” tool.
