Appotography Opinion

If you are familiar with FX Photo Studio for iPhone or iPad, you know what to expect. MacPhun’s photography apps are among the smoothest, slickest, smartest you will ever find in the App Store. FX Photo Studio for Mac is no exception. It only takes a few minutes and clicks from loading the photo to saving or sharing it. FX Photo Studio will help even total newbies to achieve neat results.

If you need, you can rotate the image to straighten it using the right tool. You can also crop, freely or choosing one of the standard ratios (1:1, 4:3, 16:9, etc.).

Effects are arranged into thematic categories, like Vintage, Vignette, Blur, Fantasy, and many others. Each category comes with a fair selection of possibilities, in order to satisfy any user, from the beginner with no experience or ideas about editing to the regular post-processing aficionado looking for a quick and well-balanced solution. Each effect can be adjusted with sliders to suit your taste and/or the feel of your photo. By combining the various effects together (you can apply more filters, one after the other), you can obtain personalized styles, which you can also save as presets for applying them over and over.

I have FX photo studio for iPhone and iPad and I really like it. I don’t have a Mac, otherwise I would be more than happy to get this one too. I wish there was a pc version of apps like this 🙁

I use many other photoapps, esp for social networking, but FX Photo Studio is the best among all. My mom also uses it to take photos on the iphone because it’s so easy, lol.
