Crashes when I click on any menu

This was a favorite app once upon a time. But in Mac OS 10.13.5, it crashes when I click on the menu bar, and if I make it past the menu bar, then it crashes when I select any menu item. I hope that the authors update this app soon. It’s great otherwise. I’m still able to use it by pressing Cmd-S to save the changes.

It does not rotate

Nice program. Does a good job with effects. Smooth.

But, rotating is a basic function. I’ll use it for my current project and when I think of it, but, without rotation it might fall by hte wayside.

Does exactly what is says it will do

I agree with the other positive reviews. This app does exactly what it says it will do, and what the screen shots indicate. I needed something to quickly make some images look jazzed up for a web page. In my case I wanted reflection and could not get that in Aperture. So I picked up this app, dropped my images in, adjusted them to the same size (very quickly) and added a reflection to them, and saved them. Took about a minute. I got exactly what I wanted, quickly.
