Customer Reviews

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.

Awesome except no crop???

I’ve used photoshop for a long time, and usually I don’t veer outside of that. However, sometimes I do need to edit an image quickly and don’t have time to work through each photo on photoshop. This app has a surprising number of features, including layers and mask painting, and includes quick useful presets which allow me to add some quick edits on the spot.

It does have annoying vignetting on some presets which makes it feel less advanced, and a slight lag when it has to reapply the effects during editing, but those are really my only complaints. Pleasantly surprised.

EDIT: The lack of crop/resize functions is a serious setback! You guys have to add this function ASAP.

Easier than many in app store for the price

The Good :
Easiest of others available in app store , i tried pixelmator , adobe CS ( trial ) and one other tool cant recall the name .Wasnt too sure on Aperture as they may be discontinued in future .
Nice and easy to use Layer feature .
The Opacity feature , downsizing if needed at the end is really well thought through.

Improvement / Feed back :
Would really appreicate if there is an easier way to drag and drop image once the app is opened or say folder structure on sides to pull.
On layering option i havent found a way to apply colors directly to a layer, this was something i found on another app. Hope this feature gets added if not already .
Naming of the app on the App store isnt consistent to their website where they call a version called Intensify PRO however PRO wasnt found here in App store .
