It means photos. Hundreds of additional photos to add to your collection in iPhoto. What better way to justify your new iPhone 5s or DSLR than with an app that enhances the photos you take. That’s PicLight, a new entry on the Mac App Store (new entries often have a reduced price, too).
PicLight comes with over 170 different lighting effects in a variety of categories. For example, there are 30 texture effects, 45 glow effects, 55 light effects, and 40 montage effects among others. And, these effects can be blended while you watch.
The proof is in the taste of the pudding. Look how easy PicLight makes adding effects.
Controls are simple and straightforward. Drop in a photo and see the effects applied without modifying the original. Select the type of lighting effect, then select the actual effect. Blending requires some trial and error but is easy to use.
Also included are more than two dozen image filters (black and white, Sepia, vintage, and others), as well as plenty of color controls.
PicLight is socially friendly and lets you save to iPhoto, set up a photo as Desktop wallpaper, send to Flickr and Facebook, or share via email. Not bad for just a few dollars.
