not worth it

Terrible,useless, a waste of $1.99—thank God didn’t pay more! A lot of useless effects, too many moving ones, and NOTHING like brushstroke painting or similar. VERY disappointed...


Finally Fixed and working

Well the last update was wonderful because the program no longer crashes and can save video files (which it had stopped doing for a looooong time). Now it is work for me like it used to and should. I find it very handy for augmenting iMovie titles and transitions. The only problem I still have is that it rotates some of my pictures from profile to landscape or vice veras and there is no control to rotate the source image. It could also use a little more information on how to use the program but that can be figured out rather quickly. Lots of fun and thanks very much for getting it up and running again.


Save your money and download the free version instead!

Most of the best effects are in the "Photo Effects Lite" version, which is free for download. To my regret, this convinced me to buy the full version, hoping that in the advertised "over 400 effects", I would find more like those in the Lite version, but I was deeply disappointed. Most of the "effects" are useless stock animations piled on top of your image and makes them look cheesy and cheap. Some effects are repeated, others won't take effect and won't save. Even with my brand new iMac, the App will slow down with files over 3MB, and will crash with files 5MB or above. About 25% of the effects are really cool though, but not worth the $10. …but what do they care, they already got my money!
