- Can't use images from the clipboard.
- Uselessly minimal control over how effects are applied.
- Doesn't even have zoom control.
- Insists that you open an image at startup, hit cancel on the open dialog and the app quits!

In a nutshell, it's a very iApp approach to image effects processing, I like what they're trying to do, but the interface is lacking in control, and eats up alot of screen space.

A very fair critique. RadicalPhoto is very young (in all reality 2.0 is really a 1.0 as it was a complete re-write) and we're trying to do something very different with it. So we knew that some changes and additions would need to be made after users got a chance to play with it.

That said, keep a look out in the near future. I think you'll be pleased with the next update.

For the most part I really like this. My only complaint is that I wish it were a little faster. I still use this more than some of the other similar applications out there. But if they could make it a little snappier Id be very happy.
