San Diego, California based developer MacPhun is kicking off the summer with an attractive bundle which appeals to your inner photography buff.
The prolific developer is responsible for some of the top-rated photo-editing software on iOS and OS X platforms and you could imagine I’ve gotten pretty excited about their new promotion. Beginning Tuesday, June 10 and through Sunday, June 22, you can get a $260 worth of Mac software for just $99.99.
That’s a cool $160 saving right off the bat. The MacPhun Bundle includes Creative Kit Plus which is comprised of Intensify Pro, Snapheal Pro and Focus 2 Pro apps. They’re also throwing in a ViewBig Premium membership and a free copy of a brand new app, when it ships later in the summer…
For those wondering, ViewBug is the world’s biggest photo contest community with daily prizes and countless opportunities to enhance your photography skills.
As for MacPhun’s mystery app included in the bundle, it’s launching this summer priced at $60. Only the first 500 people who purhcase the MacPhun Bundle will get a free copy of this app.
“Later this summer we will launch new photography app that will be the most advanced in its category; trust us, it will be a game changer,” developers teased.
Here’s a quick recap of Intensify Pro, Snapheal Pro and Focus 2 Pro apps included in the bundle.
Featuring a comprehensive set of professional presets and a rich set of detail enhancement tools, Intensify Pro is great for making your photos stand out from the crowd. The app has 16-bit image processing with RAW format support and can import layered Photoshop files.
Its powerful layering and masking tools and presets were developed by pro photographers. In short, Intensify Pro has everything you need to create vignettes with Luminosity control, apply a range of filters with finely graded controls and lots more.
This image-healing app lets you fix skin blemishes, remove unwanted objects and people from your photos, restore scanned photos and make other imperfections vanish instantly. It supports plug-ins and Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud/CS5/CS6.
Powered by proprietary CleanPics technology, Snapheal Pro now comes with three new erasing modes: Dynamic, Local and Global.
Here it is in action.
Other features include improved algorithms for image editing and color control, a Blur brush with selective masking, an enhanced handling of RAW files and more.
Plus, you can run it standalone or as a plug-in to Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, Photoshop Elements and Apple Aperture.
Focus 2 Pro
Focus 2 is designed when your photos need juicing up by adding selective focus and tilt-shift effects. This creates a cool depth-of-field effect in post-processing, without the need for expensive camera lenses.
There rare several aperture settings to choose from, each fine-tuned for specific types of photography.
Professional photographers will love adjustable blur effects, face recognition features, pro-grade presets for Portrait, Nature, Architecture, Macro and Tilt-Shift, gestures to rotate, pinch, zoom, move and adjust their blur strength and more.
Again, notice that this bundle offers pro editions of MacPhun’s existing Mac App Store downloads for consumers. These Pro editions of Focus 2, Snapheal and Intensify include a richer pool of features than their Mac App Store counterparts.
