I rated this a 4 last January, mainly due to the lacking of custom textures. However, this little app has proven SO useful for my vintage project workflow (that would take a lifetime in Photoshop), that I am upgrading my rating to 5 stars.

If we already own 1.5, we have to pay again for 2.0? When I try to update the app, it says 1.5 is the latest. So I have to assume 2.0 is a paid upgrade?

Of course I have the receipt and the serial number, but when I open flare, it keeps saying the trial period is over and pictures can only be seen in 500 mp! There is no link where to enter the serial number, can you please make sure that I somehow can register this app and that it works correctly!!!!!

Great little app. Got it on sale today for $7.99. I was already planning on buying this a few days ago after using the trial, so the special pricing had perfect timing. I'm a graphic designer and primarily never look beyond Photoshop for my tools. However, I have an upcoming vintage style photo project coming up and Flare was the perfect solution to running actions, etc, in PS. Fun to play with and the ability to save presets is a huge bonus. I would gladly give 5 stars if it had the ability to add custom textures. I have not found that yet. I hope this is something they add. Either way, this is a snazzy little photo effects app!

Hello Darlanne, thank you for your support and feedback. All the textures inside Flare were created in optimum resolution to be able to scale up and down. So any custom texture will have to be in that specific resolution, which can be very troublesome for average users. Also, using a custom texture will break the "preset sharing" feature as well due to copyright issues. That's why we opt not to allow the use of custom texture in Flare 1.X. - Talos

Thank you Talos, that makes perfect sense. I used the app again today and every time I work with it, I love it more and more. Keep up the great work.

If you have one image with the presets or adjustment you need for a group of images. You can drag the second image onto the window. The effects from the 1st image will immediate apply to the new image. Export, and do the same for the third image and so on. Batch processing require a new user interface to handle such function, and we can't do that in version 1.X.

Aimed, I think, at people who are used to the way iPhone apps work. Nevertheless, there is a fair range of presets included, plus others can be downloaded from the website. And the editing tools allow for lots of variations to be made. Sure, it's not photoshop, but for adding quick and dirty effects to your photos it's pretty good!
