All good things come to an end. Free Mac graphic editing apps are a dying breed. One of my old favorites has been reborn with more features and functions and a price tag.
All is not lost, dear Mac user. What you want in an inexpensive and easy-to-use Mac app that does a little of everything remains. ImageWell is so versatile it may reduce your need for a few other Mac apps.
Greater Than The Sum Of The Parts
ImageWell is a Mac graphic editing app with a bunch of user-centric functions that go beyond mere photo or image editing. All the basics are included, of course.
Drop in a photo. Resize, rotate or crop with ease.
Add watermarks or batch resize many images at once.
The canvas features multiple layers so you can text, talking balloons or thought clouds—even labels, arrows, circles, or objects.
ImageWell’s interface is elegant, uncluttered, understandable, and useful:
Clicking on Object brings up a palette for resizable objects and a new layer over the original image or photo. Labels and text work the same way. ImageWell has a built-in screenshot capture tool.
The palettes have numerous options to help you modify an image. Color can be controlled via Brightness, Contrast, Saturation and Sharpness tools.
What do you do with a modified image in ImageWell?
Upload via FTP, MobileMe, WebDAV, Amazon S3 or other image uploading services including Flickr, SmugMug, and ImageShack.
ImageWell can create a URL or HTML tags for images you upload so they can be emailed to friends or co-workers. It even save multiple server and upload locations in a Locations List (and saves a history of uploads).
ImageWell is no longer free but the nominal price tag gives vastly improved image handling functions, and more image editing tools than previous versions. So many tools are added in the latest version that you may not need extra apps to handle file uploads.
