MonoPhix for Mac – Our Daily App Giveaway

Share

Welcome once again to our Daily App Giveaway section of theappwhisperer.  We value our readers so much and that’s why we want to share our love of apps with you. Each day we give away free apps, better make us your home page 😉

Today, we’re giving away MonoPhix for Mac, the big brother of the popular iPhone photography app MonPhix for iPhone and MonoPhix HD for iPad. It was just released yesterday, after what the developer describes as an ‘eternity’ in the App Store approval process.

MonoPhix is an advanced photo editor like all others. But it is built to turn pictures into monochrome masterpieces and to give you full control of the outcome. You can easily control the intensity for each channel and each shade separately and you can add grain, blurs, highly adjustable vignetting and focus, color filters, colors blends and you can even use our experimental selective color feature to give some objects color while leaving the rest of the picture black and white.

You can read more about this great app, currently worth $1.99/£1.49, below but would would you like to try it for free? Join our ever expanding Twitter followers and Facebook fans, RETWEET THIS POST and send a reply to the bottom of this page telling us what you love most about theappwhisperer.com. We will select winners at random from the selection of codes that we have and send them directly to your email box.

Filters You can apply one of the many presets or effects on your picture. Which allow you to get one click satisfying results which you can later customize using the adjustment panels.

Freestyle editing MonoPhix has 10 tools to control the overal look of your monochrome picture. You can control the shadow and light tones separately or you can also control the color channels separately. MonoPhix contains 6 color filters to make some colors stand out. You can bring back some color by adjusting the transparency of the monochrome layer, you can add noise, overall blur, increase the contrast, brightness and exposure and posterize your picture.

Vignetting and Focus With MonoPhix you can control every aspect of a picture’s vignetting. You can control the intensity, the roughness of the edges and shift the vignetting. You can also put a focus on certain objects by using the focus options similar to the vignetting controls.

Colors You can give a custom color to your picture or control the blending mode which is used to mix the color with your black and white picture.

Selective color With this experimental feature you can make objects pop out by keeping their color and removing all other colors.

Sharing MonoPhix has Phix Cloud integration which allows you to upload your pictures including metadata and a recipe of your changes and filters to our online service to show off to your friends or post on your Twitter or Facebook.

Device requirements MonoPhix for Mac should run on any Mac built after 2008 running Mac OSX 10.6 or higher. MonoPhix is tested on Mountain Lion and is also optimized for it. The executable is only about 4Mb in size. An internet connection is also required for the sharing options.

    I have the iPad HD version and as much as I like it, I would love to try it on my laptop and see the differences. As always, you are the first thing in the morning I check and the last before retiring for the night.

    Thank you for all you and your staff do.

    I’ve discovered many good developers thanks to Theappwhisperer. As a Mac geek, i’m always looking for great image editors to doctor my photos and sharing is a plus. I don’t have the ios version that I know of but this will give the chance to download it to enjoy also. Thank you. 
