iPhix 1.1 for Mac OS X - Picture filters just got social
May 30, 2012 in Image Editing
[prMac.com] Ghent, Belgium - Phix Software has announced the release of iPhix 1.1, an update meant to make the vintage photography and photo adjusting app for Mac OS X more social. This update adds the ability to share not only your pictures, but also a "recipe" of your filters and adjustments, a description of your picture and EXIF and location data. Your friends will be able to view these in the new online Phix.im service. Further improvements include 8 new filters and huge performance boosts.
While the first version of iPhix had some sharing options to upload your picture, this version has integrated with Phix Cloud to offer the ability to upload and present EXIF data in a pleasant way. However the top improvement over the old sharing system is the ability to upload what you exactly did to get the desired effect on your picture. These "recipes" contain all adjustments and the effects that were applied on your picture. In this way everyone viewing your picture can replicate that exact look on their pictures. Additionally you can track the amount of views your picture got.
You can immediately try out the new sharing features with 8 new preset filters and effects. "Inky" gives your picture a blueish look as if blue gel was used in front of the flash bulb, "Woody" is a monochrome vintage effect which covers the picture in a gold hue, "Cool" makes the picture a bit more chilly, "Old Comic" imitates the style of old tainted comic books and "Dreamy" imitates the eighties style marriage pictures with a dreamy blur and bright colors. There are also 3 new effects, "Stereo" which turn your picture into a stereoscopic 3D image, "Glass" which makes your picture look as if taken behind a tiled window and "Heatvision" an infrared effect.
Other minor improvements include a new preview image for the filter gallery, huge performance boosts and some minor bug fixes.
