When it comes to Mac apps that manage, tweak, or process digital photos, there are few that I haven’t tried. Some of these apps have been around on my Mac for a decade or more. Three that I use regularly come in the Easy package, and combined they make short work of cropping photos, adding frames to photos, even processing photos in batches.
EasyCrop: Nearly every image management app on the Mac will crop photos. Even iPhoto crops photos. EasyCrop does more. And easier. Drag on a photo. Drag off a finished, cropped, re-sized photo in a different file format.
EasyCrop even lets you target a specific file size and reduce file quality as needed. It’s quick, handy, easy to use. The live preview displays exactly how the cropped photo will appear. The only negative? It’s one photo at a time.
EasyBatchPhoto: Photo processing isn’t fun beyond half a dozen photos. That’s where EasyBatchPhoto helps you save time. It batch processes photos by scaling, smoothing, changing file formats, adjusting quality, adding a watermark, and much more and does it all via drag and drop– hundreds or thousands of photos at a time.
EasyFrame: The least used of this Easy trio is EasyFrame. What it does couldn’t be much easier (forgive the pun). It creates photo frames. Drop in a photo. Select a frame from the sidebar and you’re done. The frame and the photo become one with the universe.
The frames are really more edge effects than actual photo frames, but there’s an option to customize a frame and add it to the collection in the sidebar.
Unfortunately, the Easy trio doesn’t work in an integrated way. They’re standalone apps that just do what they do and not much more. Individually and collectively the trio are not expensive, but a packaged bundle to get all three at a discount would be a nice touch.
