I too gave up on this great little app. I liked it sufficiently to purchase it numerous times for friends. But the once-a-year subscription-style payment format is not only excessive, it has become untenable to this artist living on a sparse income.

I believe in decent compensation for creative endeavors, I appreciate efforts made to keep perfecting a product, keeping it compatible, but I also believe that there should be some degree of loyalty to those who contributed to a product's early development.

I have many apps which I've used for years, with a few upgrades along the way and ongoing dialogue with and responsive support by their developers without having to pay relentless rent on their wares.

There are often many aspects to consider when 'auditioning' software whether small useful little utilities or larger more complex systemic mammoths. Software guides our behavior, either facilitating our own predilections or demanding we submit to a less intuitive methodology. One generally habituates, though sometimes after much hair pulling and cursing.

A less obvious aspect of good software is the the developer or development team. When glitches or difficulties or simple queries present themselves it makes an enormous difference if a developer is responsive and open to being helpful. This is the case here. Trollin is quick to respond, friendly and accommodating. There is much to be said of the value this brings to one's experience of software.

Some software authors (even here on MacUpdate) can be less than empathetic and, worse, non-communicative. As my experience continues to be so positive with this one, I figure it deserves to be recognized.

Thanks

I was very hopeful at the outset, but I found the demo fairly unresponsive, lots of lag time after making choices, no apparent drag & drop support - which might help speed things up. For those of us who shoot raw photos, the resolution or file sizes - or something the app is chewing on - results in blurred thumbnails until image loading is resolved followed by constant [tedious] trips back to the 'add image' button after cropping (cropping tool is the smoothest part of the process). This could be a useful little app with [a great deal of] rethinking.
