In the not too distant past, back before the App Stores, Mac applications suffered from what is commonly called feature creep. That means app developers just kept piling on the features until the app was so overburdened as to be unusable.
The App Store changed that, and brought about a new era of inexpensive apps which were elegant, useful, but limited on features. Elemento EZ is one such app. Just load up a photo and convert it to one of the basic elements, including wood, metal, or fabrics.
Here’s what it looks like.
There’s little question about which element is being used at a time.
Wood carvings, anyone?
And, of course, what photographic creation is really a creation without a little fabric?
Take that, turtleneck.
Each element comes with two presents for texture, and easy-to-use sliders allow quick, visible adjustments.
These are not the kinds of effects you’ll use everyday or even on many photos, but it’s hard to beat the price, so it’s a worthy Friday Freebie.
