Unless you’re a Photoshop guru, blending two photos into one, montage style, isn’t easy to do. Why isn’t there a Mac app that makes it easy to blend or dissolve from one photo to another the way experienced Photoshop users can?
PhotosBlender aims to be that app. The way it works is amazingly simple.
Drag photos into the Blender’s window and the blending takes place automatically (horizontally or vertically) and with almost no user intervention (almost).
What you end up with a two photos that have been blended into the beginnings of a montage, one image slowly dissolves into the other.
PhotosBlender gives you modest controls over the margins between photos, but nothing else.
That’s the problem. No controls. You can choose narrow blend, or wide blend, or no blend, but you don’t get controls over anything else. No masking, no dissolve area selection, no nothing.
IF you struggle with Photoshop or Pixelmator or any Mac graphic app to create simple montage dissolves that blend from one photo to another, PhotosBlender might be a welcome, although expensive relief to your struggle.
The end result will look better than no blending at all, but PhotosBlender suffers from any kind of granular controls over where the blend begins, where it ends, and how quickly the dissolve to another photo takes place.
