Review by Cobra331hp

This App Doesn't work - This app seems like it only lets you edit a picture of a bird to "try out the app before you buy the pro version" I guess maybe if you have prior photo editing experiece you may find this app useful as it does seem feature rich, but I lost interest since I couldn't even edit one of my own photos.

Review by ZizkaDiane

Saving and uploading images - I made some really great images with this program for a client! Then I went to save them to my desktop……the images that save look nothing like the edited verions in the program. All of my hard work gone. Why doesn’t the saved image look exactly like the applied edited versions in the program? I am extremely frustrated and I have no idea what I am going to tell my client who loves the final edit that can’t be saved and delivered to them.

Best Free iMac Photo Editer - They should make a iphone and ipad app (not sure if they do or not) but I’m going to look as this version is very easy to use. It allows for change to colors frames borders effects, not too photo-complex, just enough to spruse up your pic with a little fun color and effects. Pretty cool, fast, and practical. Thanks!

Review by gtb3

Quick, easy, free image manipulator. - I have been using Image Tricks since versions started with 1. As I’ve expanded my website work, I find that I use this regularly to crop, resize, frame, optimize or make other change to the images & graphics I’m using for the websites. Great tool to use in the right circumstances. Does what I need.

Review by Park Smitty

Much better than paid Fotor photo editor - I bought the Foto photo editor and all it did is crash all the time. this Image Tricks Lite editor is super easy to use and has a whole lot of functionality. Perfect for my hobbiest photography and graphic design needs.
