Photo Effect Studio Pro Mac
App Review

On November 27, 2011, in Apps, Macintosh, Review, by Mark Greentree

Photo Effect Studio Pro is available on the Mac App Store
App Developer: Liqing Jiang – Everimaging Ltd
Version Reviewed: 2.0.1
License: US$7.99 Requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later

Photo Effect Studio Pro is a digital photography application specializing specifically in altering your photographs. It’s not a replacement or a competitor for Adobe’s Photoshop or Pixelmator but it does offer some very compelling options to be a very good companion to both these applications.

Many times users may not need the complete feature set available with higher end applications, and with that in mind Photo Effect Studio Pro fills the void.

Review – Doxie Scanner

On July 13, 2010, in Macintosh, Review, Scanner, by Elisa Pacelli

Doxie Scanner
Company: Apparent Corporation
MSRP: $129 US
http://www.getdoxie.com/index.html

Scanners aren’t pretty. They’re not cute or sexy. Sometimes they’re not even easy to use. And they’re definitely not fun. But with Doxie, all that has changed.

Doxie is a small, portable scanner that’s incredibly simple to set-up and use. Download the appropriate software from Doxie’s web site, launch the Doxie application, plug the scanner into a USB port on your Mac, and after calibrating Doxie before the first use you’re ready to let the fun begin.

Photo Enthusiasts – Give Flickr a Try

On October 26, 2005, in Opinion, by Bakari Chavanu


This being my first article for MyMac.com, I’d thought I’d write about one of my favorite websites for me, an aspiring photographer. The site is called Flickr, a Yahoo! owned photo community site allowing users to post and share their digital photographs with other amateur and professional photographers throughout the world.

Becoming a member of Flickr is quite simple. If you only shoot a couple of dozen photos a month, you could get by with a free Flickr account which allows you to upload 20 MB of photos per month and to organize and maintain them in three different photo sets. You can get by with the free account for a couple of months without experiencing any limitations. But once you catch the Flickr bug you’ll want to go pro level for just $24.95 a year which gives you 2 gigs of monthly upload, unlimited storage, bandwidth, photosets, permanent archiving, and ad-free browsing and sharing.
