FX Photo Studio 4.1 Update

by Pu on October 4, 2011

FX Photo Studio 4.1 by MacphunFX Photo Studio by MacPhun was updated to version 4.1. The latest release not only revamps previously included items, but it also adds a couple of useful new features.

Developers listened to the requests made by their users and in the new version they revised the app’s brush tool in masking. The brush can now be resized and both its hardness and opacity can be adjusted as well. Customization is possible thanks to three separate sliders, each commanding one of the aforementioned parameters. The newly added flexibility allows to achieve better control when working in masking mode, especially with finer details. Previously, FX Photo Studio only offered four different fixed brush types, which by the way are still available in the brush menu, although they are now used as brush presets and can be edited.

FX Photo Studio 4.1Another addition in FX Photo Studio 4.1 is the Color Splash feature. Color Splash comes with two painting modes, color and grayscale. The brush tool used to apply color or grayscale selectively on images in Color Splash is the same used for masking and thus fully adjustable. For better results, it’s possible to enable panning and zooming.

FX Photo Studio 4.1Finally, FX Photo Studio now preserves EXIF data of your photo, so that all the useful information contained in pictures is retained after saving.

They add some pretty cool stuff like higher res support (it’s not universal but on the iPad 2, it managed to support up to 12 MP; the old version can only support up to 7.1 MP), radius, and such–but they throw in new presets and remove the old ones which is not very cool.

Well, to be honest, I’m not a frequent user of Picfx myself, but a few iPhone users like it quite a lot, especially for adding final touches to photos taken in other apps. As it is free, it’s worth taking a look.
