Comments and Ratings for ColorStrokes

Brilliant App! (2.4)
08/06/2017 10:57:45 4/5 By Ma Wide
This app is brilliant for those that want to start editing/manipulating their photos with dramatic effects. It is very easy to use and you can create stunning images. Have already recommended it to a lot of my friends. Definitely worth getting this one! I have just edited a black and white image of our front garden which has masses of Californian poppies but with one bright red poppy. I’ve left the whole image in black and white and just defined the red petals of that single poppy! Awesome. For this price you can play around to your hearts content!

Ver. 2.4 Keeps Crashing on macOS Sierra (2.4)

Starts off ok but then when ‘filling in’ colour it grinds to a halt and eventually crashes. I like the thought of the App but wish I could actually use it to some effect and not just witness the colour wheel all the time. Back to the manual way in Photoshop I think !!

A dreadful App (2.4)
09/08/2016 18:22:00 1/5 By Polyzoan
One of a number of apps by Macphun which if combined into one app would be a half decent photo editor. However, this app in isolation is limited in its functionality and I cannot recommend it. Sorry.

Great (2.4)

So easy to use can highly recomend this app great addition to the other Macphun software

Simply the best (2.4)
09/05/2016 08:25:00 5/5 By Gandalf the Whites
Easy to use with results beyond belief. It does one specific task but it does it better than all the rest. Okay, you could achieve similar results in other editing software but at the expense of time and cost. The interface is simple and intuitive and the results are far from simplistic. Friends are always impressed with the effects. A definite WOW factor from a reasonably priced package.

fantastic fun (2.4)
