Macphun has released a free “Filters for Photos” app that adds an additional 30 photo filters to Photos for OS X. The filters can be launched as a standalone app, or be used as an extension in the Photos app’s Edit panels.
Vintage or black & white? Color fantasy or cross process? Oil painting or pen sketch? Get dozens of great photo filters inside Filters for Photos.
Use it as a standalone app or a Photos extension. Apply filters in real time, mix & match filters, adjust the look and even draw with filters.
There is a small catch. By default, Filters for Photos only offers 15 extensions. It’ll cost ya a signup for the Macphun newsletter to get the other 15 filters. And what’s one more email in your mailbox, right?
The app offers the ability to apply a filter to an entire photo, or just a portion of the overall image, via a masking brush. Each filter is visually striking and distinct, offering a number of cool effects to apply to your favorite photos. I’ve been playing with it (and yes, I do mean the app) this morning on coffee breaks, (and in between viewing sessions of “Deadpool”), and have been having great fun trying out the various filters.
