Photo Toaster – Major Update – No More In-App Purchases! And Temporary Price Drop!

Photo Toaster which is one of our favourite apps here at has just under gone a serious update! There’s a new FX brush that allows you to brush in areas of color or focus. This is incredibly powerful when coupled with the Toaster editing environment. You might think of it as a mini-app within the app.

There’s added brightness and blur adjustments. These are particularly useful when softening up an image as a background for titling. And titling is more integrated with a direct link to their TitleFx app, as an export option.

The Toaster also hit the gym for the new year. Everything is now noticeably faster. Opening the editor, picking presets, making adjustments and saving to the album, are all improved.

The lighting brushes get an improved brushing algorithm for more control and some of the image adjustments get a quality upgrade.

Lastly, the borders/textures pack is now included for free! That’s 27 more beautiful borders and 12 more creative textures. The developers decided that customers should pay once and get everything included.

As well as all that, to celebrate this major release PhotoToaster is available for only $0.99/£0.69 instead of its more usual $1.99/£1.69 – click here to download/upgrade.


New FX Brushes



The FX brushes highlight a subject using focus and color effects. Define the effect area using the full featured masking mini-app within PhotoToaster.



The FX Brush “room” is like an app within PhotoToaster. It’s complete with undo, mask operations and brush controls. Here we see the red mask preview mode while we’re zoomed in a bit to check our work. As with all PhotoToaster functionality, the FX brushes are non-destructive and can be re-edited at any time.

Creative Tools and TitleFx Integration



Added brightness and blur adjustments. These are particularly useful for artistic work, like softening up an image for use as a background for titling. Titling is now more integrated with a direct link to the titling app “TitleFx” as an export option.
