MonoPhix has 10 tools to control the overal look of your monochrome picture. You can control the shadow and light tones separately or you can also control the color channels separately. MonoPhix contains 6 color filters to make some colors stand out. You can bring back some color by adjusting the transparency of the monochrome layer, you can add noise, overall blur, increase the contrast, brightness and exposure and posterize your picture.
-Vignetting and Focus-
With MonoPhix you can control every aspect of a picture's vignetting. You can control the intensity, the roughness of the edges and shift the vignetting. You can also put a focus on certain objects by using the focus options similar to the vignetting controls.
You can give a custom color to your picture or control the blending mode which is used to mix the color with your black and white picture.
With this experimental feature you can make objects pop out by keeping their color and removing all other colors.
MonoPhix has Phix Cloud integration which allows you to upload your pictures including metadata and a recipe of your changes and filters to our online service to show off to your friends or post on your Twitter or Facebook.
I don't understand the point, just use iPhoto's features
There are enough features in iPhoto to change the overall color of the photo with temperature and tint controls and antique and sepia filters. All I came here for was to color in parts of old black and white photos in different colors to make them look more modern. The selective coloring feature is not apparently different than the coloring feature because I took two black and white photos so far, but can't choose single objects in them to color.
