[prMac.com] Minsk, Belarus - Independent developer, Alexey Khutorschikov today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Crop-Size 2.5.5, an important update to his popular photo editing solution for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. The app offers iOS users the ability to quickly and easily crop, resize, and edit any photos stored on their device or in iCloud. In addition to its comprehensive cropping and resizing tools, Crop-Size offers a number of filters and effects that can be applied to any photo or group of photos, and the combination of filters can be saved as part of a program to be applied to other photos.
Crop-Size allows users to easily prepare beautiful photos for sharing with family and friends, via Facebook and Instagram. The apps powerful features also allow users to create professional-looking images for use in presentations, websites, and business documents. While powerful, the app was designed with three simple principles in mind. First, to offer the user as much control and power over their image editing as possible. Two, make the process as simple and intuitive as is practical. Last but not least, the entire editing process should be designed to offer the desired results in a minimal amount of time.
"Taking photos on the iPhone and iPad is an incredibly simple and enjoyable process," says Crop-Size creator Alexey Khutorschikov. "I've always felt that the process of resizing and editing photos should be just as simple and fun as taking them. However, I've never believed making editing easy should bring any sacrifice to an app's power. So, I sat down and created Crop-Size. It brings powerful photo resizing, cropping, and editing tools to iOS device users, but without the complicated controls of some of those other apps."
Unlike many other image editing apps available for iOS devices, Crop-Size offers users the ability to specify exact dimensions when cropping and resizing images. Customizable presets help facilitate this task, and the app's precise single-pixel correction feature gets the job done when it is necessary to slightly adjust an images size or position. For the greatest flexibility when editing, the app can be set to use measurements of pixels, inches or centimeters.
While resizing and cropping photos is a marque feature of Crop-Size, the app offers so much more than just that. It also offers a number of photo filters and effects, all of which can be applied to an image in any combination, and as many times as desired in any single session. Plus, users can easily see which effects have been applied to an image, making it easy to track changes. In addition, any action applied to a photo or batch of photos can be stored as programs for use in future photo editing sessions.
Crop-Size is excellent for both single and batch processing of images. Batch processing allows users to apply resizing, cropping, or other edits made to a photo to be made to multiple photos at once. Using batch processing and programs allow users to quickly and easily apply changes to large amounts of photos, without the need for unneeded and monotonous repetition. Plus, all editing actions are stored in a handy editing history list, which allows users to undo, redo, or jump to any step in their editing history.
Users will also appreciate the handy information that is available about each image. Information includes: format, filesize, dimensions, and metadata. The information is always available, and it can be modified during the editing process.
