Some photos are crappy, some are good enough to keep and share, but most of the others will wind up inside iPhoto where they live on in some kind of digital photo landfill. That’s the status of about 90-percent of all the photos in my iPhoto collection. What’s needed is a one-trick pony app that makes shared photos totally unique.
40 Dreamy Effects For Free
My husband and I are blessed with three girls. Needless to say, there’s a girl in nearly every photo we’ve taken since we got married, got drunk, and decided to spawn.
That means every photo has a girl, and every photo is mostly the same. There’s a little girl or two or three or me in each photo.
How do we make the photos look totally unique?
We add one of 40 special dreamy light effects from a free Mac app that does than and nothing more. Nothing.
Dreamlight, for now, is free. It once had a price tag but I agree with other users. Charging for Dreamlight isn’t a good idea. No, wait. Paying for Dreamlight isn’t a good idea.
When it’s free, it’s OK to use because the effects won’t impress your relatives or friends. Unless, of course, they need additional proof that you’re as cheesy and unsophisticated as they’ve always thought.
Here’s a look at a few of the sample effects.
These are the kind of effects that are OK for kids in primary school and old folks who will tell you the effects are cute but privately grumble about why you loused up the photo with those silly effects.
Here’s another. You get the idea about the other 38 effects, right?
I think of Dreamlight as a one-trick pony with 40 tricks that, when added together, almost make a full trick.
Select a dreamy light effect and click. Just like Prego, it’s in there.
At the regular price of $9.99 it’s barely 25-cents per effect. But I couldn’t find a single effect worth 25-cents.
So, when priced at free, Dreamlight might be a worthy addition to the half dozen nearly worthy photo effects and apps you’ve collected on your Mac.
At the very least, Dreamlight does some of what iPhoto can’t do.
