In fact, digital photography rules, film photography is all but dead, and creating effects and adding filters to photos once was the domain of professional photographers is now point and click simple for the great masses of digital camera owners. Here’s an Analog example:
Look Like Film
It seems a bit crazy but one of the most popular digital effects of the digital camera age is to take digital photos and make them look like film from yesteryear.
I know, right? Crazy. Maybe it’s a human thing and we secretly yearn for simpler times. Whatever it is, Analog (the Mac photo app) helps us get there.
This handy Mac photo app helps you to add some life to your basic digital photos by making them look like photos taken in the last century.
Strange, right? Analog comes with dozens of filters and effects, 15 borders, and everything works with a simple point and click.
Photos can be cropped and recomposed. Drop in a border to make the photo standout. Try different filters for different effects and adjust the intensity of each one.
There’s no learning curve with Analog, either. All you do is point and click. Point to the filter you want to apply. Point to the slider bar to adjust the filter’s intensity. Done.
As a good Mac citizen, Analog lets you share photos to Tumblr, Facebook, Flickr, and Picasa, and photos can make the round-trip journey from iPhoto or Aperture to Analog and back with ease.
The only negative I have, and it’s a minor nit, has to do with price and value. There are hundreds of photo apps for iPhone which have many more filter and effects options built-in, and prices range from free to a few dollars. So, why do Mac users have to pay more for less?
