My showcase today is a clever Mac graphic utility which starts out free, adds some useful functionality in a handy place, and if you don’t mind spending a couple of bucks, has an in-app pro version upgrade.
Bend Me, Shape Me
The app is called ImaPic, and it’s something of an inexpensive utility that does what anyone who messes with photos and images needs done, but does it faster and easier. ImaPic resides in the Mac’s Menubar.
To edit a photo or image, just drag and drop it onto the icon in the Menubar. Up pops a window which contains the image and plenty of tools to edit the whole photo or any section you want. Tools include options to adjust proportions and aspect ratio, crop the image, cut out sections of the image.
ImaPic couldn’t be much easier to use. Drag and drop, edit, share. Images and photos can be resized, cropped, and converted to different image or photo file formats, including .JPG, .PNG, .BMP, and .TIFF.
Sharing options include the standard settings in OS X for Mail, AirDrop, Twitter, Facebook, or Flickr. Also handy is the option to batch convert multiple images at the same time. If you need more functions you’ll need to check elsewhere. That’s all that ImaPic does but it does it at the right price; a few bucks with the free version substituting as try-before-you-buy.
