xDream (was Imagerie) is an image editor with layers, vectors, filters and RAW support.

From creating professional presentations to sending e-mails to family and friends, everyone needs an image editor from time to time. Some competitors, while great programs, are overkill for these types of tasks. You shouldn't have to take evening classes or spend hours reading a manual to put together a project or letter that is polished and professional.

We didn't design xDream to be a clone of famous competitors; instead we chose to meet the needs of your daily image editing

My problem with this developer is that they provide no means of downloading prior versions of their software. There are still many of us out there running Mac OS 10.5.8 on Power PC machines, mine being a G5 quad that I paid a few grand for. Their response to my inquiry was to go buy a new machine. Apparently, they have no concept of the current economic conditions in this country.

There's nothing wrong in the developer asking for an upgrade of your machine.

Old operating systems make development more difficult, since they do not support a lot of APIs and commands. Do you prefer an application that performs poorly on Leopard (coming from 2009), Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion, or a really good application that only works on Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion?

Are these guys serious? They want me to hand over $30 without a trial version? I wonder if they buy cars without test driving them. ?For this kind of money, I can upgrade to GraphicConverter 7, after I take their TRIAL version for a spin.

Apple will refund you if you are not happy with the application.

So, this appears to be the procedure:

http://www.40tech.com/2011/01/31/how-to-get-a-refund-from-the-ios-or-mac-app-stores/

When you report a problem via the iTunes store, the options they give you are as follows:
1. I didn't receive this item
2. I inadvertently purchased this item
3. This item does not function as expected
4. I already own this item
5. This item was labeled incorrectly
6. My concern isn't listed here (with box to explain)

Odd, but nowhere do I see the option of "I was not happy with the application." As if that explanation is going to fly in the first place. So, I either lie or hope Apple will accept my rationale of unhappiness.

And since all of the articles I found that describe this "simple" process caution us not to abuse this process - and I'm unclear as to how many requests constitute an "abuse" - it's conceivable that I cannot really "demo" very many of these pay-up-front products before Apple won't let me do so anymore and will stop issuing refunds.

And then, if I do get lucky, I get to wait at least a week before Apple even decides, and then I get to wait even longer before a refund shows up in my bank account. In the meantime, I no longer have access to the money that I might have spent on a competing product that did allow a trial version and that might have satisfied what I was looking for.

And this is the new form of "demo" for an app? Buyer beware. Be very aware.

Thanks, but no thanks.

No, I don't like it anymore. Moapps Version was nice and easy to use with fast results, but now it's just one of these pic-editors with bad usability and weird menus. Too bad.

Improvements? No. Ok, I delete this Aplication. It's just a waste of time to think about it.

I liked myPhotoEdit and was sad to hear that moapp sold it. However; this app does look promising and has lots more features than myPhotoEdit has. I'm crossing my fingers that app4mac keeps its word and gives registered users of myPhotoEdit a free license for the finished product.

This used to be a great app called myPhotoEdit by MOApp Software and was sold to app4mac.

xDream (was Imagerie) is an image editor with layers, vectors, filters and RAW support.

From creating professional presentations to sending e-mails to family and friends, everyone needs an image editor from time to time. Some competitors, while great programs, are overkill for these types of tasks. You shouldn't have to take evening classes or spend hours reading a manual to put together a project or letter that is polished and professional.

We didn't design xDream to be a clone of famous competitors; instead we chose to meet the needs of your daily image editing tasks. xDream easily enhances, crops and exports an image for a weblog entry, article or a presentation. These common time consuming tasks are now streamlined and easy. xDream makes it fast and easy for anyone to edit an image. Its features range from basic enhancement to the implementation of high-end filters, vector images, creative text images and textures, shadows and gradients for sophisticated projects. We built xDream so you don't have to be a professional image editor to create professional images.

xDream is a powerful application with the goal to make all of your tasks as easy to perform as possible. xDream was designed and built to be fast, flexible and intuitive. There are no complex windows, hidden features or tools. Everything is simple and clear. Speed matters and that is why we built xDream with a modern engine and a host of powerful tools to manage your images. Because of this modern core, we can now add new features very quickly. Just because xDream is fast and intuitive doesn't mean the results are ordinary, quite the opposite is true. With xDream, anyone can produce world-class results in a matter of seconds. Photo editing isn't a chore anymore, xDream is here!

xDream uses Core Image technology. Because your graphics card/GPU handles the calculations, xDream doesn't drain your CPU. The better your graphics card/GPU, the faster xDream processes your image or applies a filter.
