[prMac.com] Zoetermeer, Netherlands - From VeprIT with love: Photo Sense Lite (originally sold at $3.99) becomes free at the Saint Valentine's Day! Photo Sense is a powerful, but very easy to use photo editing software for Mac and iPhone/iPad/iPod touch. It is designed to make photographs more attractive quickly and easily, without spending a lot of time and money on learning, purchasing, and using professional photo manipulation software. Photo Sense enhances photos automatically, and allows users to customize results to their liking. In addition, the users can apply various creative effects.
The unique automatic photo enhancement algorithm implemented in Photo Sense embraces everything its developers learned during over 6 years of professional photography experience. The only shortcoming the application has compared to manual processing is the lack of human vision, which sometimes can lead to a suboptimal choice of automatic image processing parameters. With the tools provided by Photo Sense, the user can easily and quickly perfect the automatic results.
Photo Sense Lite for Mac is a younger brother of the full Mac version. It implements the same automatic photo enhancement algorithm and provides the same semi-automatic processing tools as the full version. However, it only works with a single image at a time, and does not allow manual adjustments. The full Mac version is much more than the automatic photo enhancement engine, there is a powerful batch photo editor around it, with the following main distinguishing features:
* Batch processing: add, apply custom processing options and effects, and save multiple images at a time
* Manual (traditional) photo adjustments working in sync with the automatic engine
* Copying & pasting of image settings between different photographs. This applies to processing options (including manual adjustments), effects, and even crop & straighten settings. It saves enormous amounts of time when editing many photos
* Photographs can be processed in parallel on computers with multiple CPUs. For example, on a dual-core system, processing of multiple images happens about twice faster
Note: it is not guaranteed that Photo Sense Lite will stay free forever.
