PhotoStyler overview

PhotoStyler is the easiest way to style your digital photos with your Mac. This simple, fast and accurate native solution combines the powers of Apple's core technologies with the flexibility and efficiency of proprietary application-specific modules. PhotoStyler supports all image formats that are supported by MacOS including RAW images.

PhotoStyler doesn't require any special skills or knowledge. Need a sepia? Drop the "Monochrome" filter to the chain and check the "Sepia" checkbox. Want some scratches on the photo to make it look old? Drop the "Scratches" filter to the chain. Need a glow, an annotation, shadows, 3D-look with perspective? Well, you know what to do... You can combine any number of filters and save the chain as a preset. A built-in presets library contains prepared styles so you can preview and adjust your photo variations in seconds.

Features
  • Lomo, polaroid, cross-processing, sepia, black & white, scratches and ragged corners - Everything is made with incredible speed and simplicity.
  • A Presets library gives you an easy way to re-use interesting filter combinations. Tens of pre-built presets give you a good starting point and endless photo styling possibilities.
  • Framing tools are simple yet powerful: you can apply color, textured, glass, matte and vignette.
  • Choose a part of the image to apply the filter to: the new masking tool allows you to adjust the filter area and power with great accuracy.
  • Just one click to apply auto-levels or auto-contrast, unsharp mask and noise reduction.

Although this (and other comparable apps) uses the default CIFilters from Apple this one has some great way of putting those in one package. Simple to use and results are pretty nice.

I downloaded the app, but the demo places a ridiculous amount of watermarks across the filtered photo (more than 60 watermarks!), making it virtually impossible to view final results clearly. Most of the other high-end filtering apps are unrestricted during the demo period (ie: Totally Rad, OnOne Software, Nik Software, and Pixelmator, all offer a better demo experience with NO watermarks)

Super easy to use and incredibly powerful. No other program has been able to do what this application can do with such ease and speed. I've used similar programs but they tend to have the same exact or similar filters, this application on the other hand can do a lot more and in a much cooler way.

Simple yet powerful app with a rich number of presets (try Capuccino effect for instance) and a good support from the developer.

Has potential. Amazing range of presets. Some observations (if developers read these things): - when app first launches and you choose an image, it opens image with the presets selector, with no obvious way to just get to the plain image and then work with it - if you close that window and open a subsequent image, it opens to an editing space; this is my expected behaviour; however, opens half-way off the screen! need to reposition window - then you can add filters - this initial launch behaviour can be modified in Preferences, to open a new blank project by default and show the Library; to me, this should be the default behaviour, but obviously the developers do not, so fine, but at least make it clear, perhaps with a button at the top, how to open the plain photo in a workspace - when viewing the Library, it is not clear how to apply the effects; for example, when applying a frame design, you'd think double-clicking would add the texture, wood let's say, but it does not; you have to drag the texture on to the palette, but holy cow, the Library is positioned over top of that filter dialog, so you have to move it; I am working on a MacBook Pro, so clearly the screen real estate is a factor, but I don't like that design; make the toolbars/palettes/libraries/presets/whatever all snap as docked screens on the side or bottom by default, resizing the centre image workspace, so that then they can be undocked as a user chooses, so as to clearly present to the user the options available - look at apps such as Photoshop...it opens with a default set of toolbars and palettes (floating mind you, but still visible!), that are easily customisable, but right from the get-go you have access to the core functions of the app; that's the paradigm folks are used to, IMHO - some windows do not focus properly; oddly, the About window shows up behind the Library; I am not a programmer, but that surely is not how something like that should work - if you have a workspace open and want to see Presets, you have to use a keyboard shortcut or choose a menu option; once the Presets screen opens, there is no (obvious) way to get back to the other screen - right now, the app is a bit haphazard in its design layout, with odd window behaviours and some aspects not terribly intuitive - you could avoid much of this by making the first Preset as 'none' or something suitable - this is just my opinion! - at version 6, I am somewhat surprised these elements still exist - I see some of these issues, interestingly, are addressed in the Neatberry online FAQ; my view is if the issue has to be addressed in an FAQ, it needs to be changed in the app as a default behaviour, generally, or that function revisited and revised to make it more intuitive - add comprehensive watermarking tools and PhotoStyler has the potential to be the ultimate styler app
