That means iPhoto is likely to be fully loaded with tens of thousands of less than stellar photographs, hastily captured, seldom tweaked, growing in number. How can you add some vitality to a boring photo? Just add this tool to your Mac.
ColorStrokes For Different Folks
There’s a new trend in digital photography and videography these days. You see it on television all the time. A grayscale or black and white photo with a primary object in color.
What happens is simple. The colored object stands out, visually jumping off the photo or TV screen.
Putting splashes of color on a grayscale, sepia or black and white background once was the domain of Photoshop gurus and professionals.
Today, all you need to do the same thing is ColorStrokes.
Instead of removing the color from an image and then putting it back into the object you want highlighted, ColorStrokes takes a unique approach with simple, self explanatory tools.
In ColorStrokes all you need to do is select the object in the photo to keep the color and it automatically turns the rest of the photo monochrome.
Other tools make it easy to adjust brightness, contrast, blur, saturation, exposure, and more, including native color and background.
The brush that selects the colored object in the photo can be altered, too, including diameter, softness, and opacity. And, of course, you can zoom into an image to make sure color is applied to just the right pixels.
ColorStrokes is a good Mac citizen and shares photos to Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Flickr, and, of course, email.
This is well done, easy to setup and use, and costs less than a sandwich.
