$10 worth of Photoshop, as Big Green himself points out, but that belies its remarkable utility. All images dragged to the floating ?Drop Pictures Here? are converted to JPG. You can choose Save target under 100KB or other values when you are looking for that quick image reduction. It opens most image types but that is not its forte. JPG only. EasyPhoto imports from a digital camera - no experience of this.
I use EasyPhoto also for cropping desired areas of an image, and yes, you can crop your mother-in-law out of a picture and Save As new file to any folder. Under Picture menu, Crop to 640 x 480 pixels enables enlargement of a portion and sizing to monitor aspect ratio for making Desktop screens, and the same for making Screen-Saver images. For experimenting, Undo undoes multiple times.
Picture Effects menu is an amateur photographer?s/ artist?s magic toolbox of natty colorizing, solarize, sharpen, embossing, edge detection. This is the fun side. In summary, EasyPhoto?s mission is picture reduction to JPG and cropping to enlarge a portion yet still Save As email size.
Be aware that EasyPhoto crashes a lot after batch stuff, a known ?feature? but as you usually have the file in the finder under EasyPhoto it is appropriate to start again or drag the picture file to the dock icon. This program has been a life saver to me, easily justifying a much larger dollar value. But don?t tell Big Green I said so ;-) This five-star app deserves wider acclaim.
