When it comes to graphic designs or photo enhancements, there isn’t much new under the sun for Mac users. One of the more complicated graphic techniques is made easy with the free Isis Photo Effects app. Other than some time devoted to trial and error, there’s not much to Isis other than good results. It blends photos, backgrounds, images using point and click.
Grab two images or photos, select the effects (mask, duotone, color, etc.), then click. Effects are almost infinitely variable.

Isis Photo Effects takes little effort to learn, thanks to a small learning curve, though trial and error seems to be the order of the day. Still, Isis makes quick work of blending that once was the purview of Photoshop.
