I've been using it for some time. It can be slow on extremely large photos, but I think it's about as fast as any other program I have ever used. This could be because my Mac is fairly old. I love it. I think it's a great program, considering it's free.

Belight make it so difficult to update. Too many product to keep track of and update at different time. I contact them to tell them and they only rude to me. Sure they take money but no customer appreciate.

I downloaded version 2.4.2, and when I ran the program, it no longer said "Pro Version." When I click on About Image Tricks I'm told I have version 2.4.1. When I click on "Check for Updates" I'm told I don't need to update because I have version 2.4.2. Me thinks there's one or two more "minor bugs" to fix.

Try to move Image Tricks from your Applications folder to Trash, and then install it again. Then you will have correct version number (2.4.2).

Thanks, Andrey, it worked! Still says Image Tricks and not Image Tricks Pro, but the license seems to be fully intact. I'm now OFFICIALLY the happy owner of Ver. 2.4.2.

It seems Image Tricks Pro is out of development, without an update for the past couple of years (or 3?). I purchased the last version with high hopes to seeing more in terms of filters and UI controls, with much confidence in the BeLight name– a confidence now in question.

Install Xcode which comes with tiger installation disc. It includes Core Image Fun House.app which has all the tools. The only drawback is the size of Xcode - 2.4GB !!!

The installer is dumb. You can only install as administrator. You can choose an install-location in the installer, but it does not let you choose your homefolder, i.e. ~/Applications. This is not the way of Apple-Guide-Lines. There is no reason why a local user shouldn't be able to install this app into their homefolder only.

Positives: * excellent straightforward interface * good number of effects Negatives: * unusually slow (compared to other CoreImage apps) * no effects stacking * no layering Summary: Poor performance and a limited feature-set hamper what could be a powerful application.
