The number of free to nearly free photo apps for Mac users to choose from these days is growing quickly. Because OS X comes with built-in image enhancement features, many of these new apps don’t do anything different than the next one. Here’s an example.
What Price Cheap?
The latest photo enhancement app to cross my eyes is called Filtromatic, an inexpensive Mac app that doesn’t blaze a new trail with special features, other than it fails to reach version 1.0 status, yet has a price tag (albeit nominal).
I like a one-trick pony app as much as the next Mac-owning photographer wannabe, and my collection of photo apps with a unique feature is second to none.
Filtromatic may be the easiest photo enhancement app you’ll ever use, though. Drop in a photo, select a filter from the sidebar, click, and call it a day.
Assuming your photo and the applied enhancement are worthy, you may want to share it with the rest of the world and you can. Facebook, Mail, AirDrop, Messages.
Wait. Are not most of those sharing methods already built in to OS X? You heard, read, or assumed correctly.
Filtromatic does far less than Fotor does to justify the nominal price tag, but Fotor is far better and is free.
Wait. Filtromatic also lets you crop a photo, or flip it to one side or another. And, yes, it even saves the photo to your Mac for storage and safekeeping.
Is there no end to this maddening list of features? Thankfully, yes.
