More Fun Than Prom Night! - This is where being an photo artist or a photo techie draws the line. What great creative fun without boundries. This is the most fun for ten bucks ever. It's like digital crayolas for adults and you don't have to stay within the line if you don't want to. I've dug into my old files and breath new and exciting life to some of my favorite images. This program is super intuitive from the start. I found having a Bamboo pad and stylus to be a huge advantage for fine detail coloring. It would be helpful to be able to isolate portions of the image, i.e., control specific parts with effecting others with the slide bar controls. Perhaps a "Save" and proceed function, thus keeping previous work done while concentrating on other image segments. I've posted some of my creations on my FB page and they drew lots of likes and raves. I haven't had this much legal fun since I took Mary Ann to the senior prom. Buy it, you'll love it. Same for all of the other Macphun programs. Five stars is an understatement.

Not High Sierra Compatible - This was a wonderful app, and it pains me to write a one-star review for a MacPhun product, but it has a fatal bug under High Sierra that make it unusable. The first brushstoke works fine, but subsequent strokes are all pixellated. I contacted MacPhun support and they confirmed they are not supporting High Sierra with an update, so this is officially an abandoned product. MacPhun should withdraw it from the app store.

Review by T Trull

LOVING COLORSTROKES - Was looking for a fun way to edit some pictures and came across this app! Absolutely love it and it is fun although it takes time to edit detailed pics when you are wanting to change colors, etc. My only suggestion would be if there were a way to blend more when you have a pic that goes from EXAMPLE: grass to mulch…. in making the grass greener and the mulch tan/brown as it should be…. I would like to be able to blend it so that it looks natural instead of it being a straight line with regards to the way the landscape was done. Its that PERFECT in this location where the photo shoot was done. Other than this…. no complaints at all!

Review by Ann's Husband, Glen

Just a Thoroughly Delightful App! - I”m not surprised that this app has such rave reviews. We thrill whenever a developer creates an application that has a sensible, delightfully functional, beautiful INTERFACE. It has all the applicable tools also, sitting right in front of you. I also like that it exists accross platforms - Mac, iPad, and iPhone all.

Color Splash - I have always wanted to be able to color my photos like this. When I asked someone they would never share their secret. Now I have one. Love the program! Its easy and it can make your photos profound and professional. What I would like to see improved is the ability to make smaller strokes. The smallest size to color does not do the best job when coloring fine lines or very small spaces. Other than that, it’s great!
