Easy Digital Imaging...
 

PhotoFix (MAC)

On the MAC side, Microspot's PhotoFix 3.4, will run on 68k though G3 computers and has a fast, intuitive, learning curve that leaves every other MAC digital imaging program in the dust. It's most useful feature is multiple undo/redo, up to 32 in all. You can perform many manipulations and then undo and redo them, going back and forth with ease. Although it works a bit differently from Picture Window, the end result is the same...you can easily alter multiple series of effects, and try many variations without having to start over from scratch.

Let's say, for example, you decide to burn in (darken) an area. Then some more. And more yet. Then you add some color. And finally make it sharper. You've now done five separate operations and suddenly it doesn't look quite right. PhotoFix lets you go back and forth -lightning fast- through all five of them and stop at any one, where you can apply new effects and then continue on from there, or undo again. Very few other imaging programs have multiple undo/redo features and those that do are usually so slow, you can't really compare one image with another.

PhotoFix also has an elegant tool menu layout that's simple but feature-rich...and very easy to use. I doubt you'll be referring to the manual much, as the program begs for hands-on experimentation. I guess by now you've realized I think this is a swell program...it sure is, and a great value for only $59.95. (The price is going up in 1999, so grab it now!)

If you buy the pair of programs I've recommended, you'll be able to crop, change overall exposure, dodge, burn-in, change contrast, do split contrast, sharpen and soften overall and locally, color correct, change colors, color B&W photos, remove unwanted details, alter details (such as making rectangular eye reflections round) retouch blemishes, remove and change backgrounds, bleach areas, tone B&W prints, create photo montages, and much more. All come with basic photo filing and retrieval capabilities.

Think about it. The money you'll save by not buying high-priced imaging software will get you several programs with some features that not even the expensive ones have, and there'll be enough money left over for most of the hardware you'll need, including the most important one- a photo-quality printer you can swear by...and not at.
