We Mincey folk have managed to stuff about 30-thousand digital photos into iPhoto through the years, upgrading to every new version.
iPhoto is a good place to store photos, organize photos, but not so wonderful for editing photos beyond just the basics of sepia tone or red eye removal. If you long for more control over photo editing, but can barely afford to keep up with iPhoto, try Analog.
Think filters, effects, and borders that are drop dead easy to implement in a trial and error method that’s actually fun, but Photoshop or Pixelmator it ain’t.
Drop in a photo and then select a filter from the sidebar.
That’s really just about it.
Analog renders the filters almost instantly, and you have almost three dozen from which to choose.
Wait! There’s more!
Analog also does borders, image cropping and rotation– over a dozen. That makes it easy to create a photo that’s ready to share online.
Now, speaking of sharing. Note that Analog lets you publish photos to Tumblr, Picasa, CloudApp, Facebook, and Flickr, as well as send via email.
That makes it easy to take your best, shareable photos from iPhoto, drop them into Analog for quick tweaking, and share them with just a click.
Analog is well done, elegant but not simplistic, and has a wide enough variety of filters that it’s worth the nominal price.
