Digital camera quality has improved so much that even smart phones are becoming the camera of choice for most of us. There’s still one nagging problem about photography.
Whether film or digital, whether high quality DSLRs or smart phones, cameras can’t fix the photos. Many of our photos have blemishes or objects in the photo that we don’t want. Easy fix, right? Just spend $700 on Photoshop, and take a two year class at the local community college to figure out how to use it.
Or, download the inexpensive Snapheal app and fix photos with a click. I’ve never used a photo enhancing app quite like this. Not only does it enhance photos with a few of the standard tools, but it also deletes unwanted objects from photos.
Take a look at these sample photos. The image on the left is cluttered with objects we’d rather not have in the photo. Grab those objects and click the erase button. Presto, change-o, no more clutter.
Everyone who takes photos wishes they had better skin. Snapheal actually heals portrait photos with a click. Say goodbye to zits and pizza face.
Now, take a look at this old printed photograph with the tear in the background. How do you fix that? First, scan it to your Mac. Second, swab the tear with Snapheal and click.
Snapheal has plenty of other tools, including shadow enhancement, crop, sharpen, blur, denoise, highlights, erase, and many others. But the cool one is the ability to delete objects or blemishes from the photo.
There are other useful features. Upload to Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or email photos. Export to Aperture or iPhoto (also integrates with Photoshop and Lightroom).
I don’t recall a Mac photo app that gives me more pleasure.
