Review by Peter Cranstone

Very impressive - I have to say that this is one of the most impressive photo editing tools for the Mac that I’ve come across. Seriously good job with the coding. I have one feature request - A Photo extension with all the capabilities of the standalone app - I would pay for this. What’s also incredibly impressive is the gradient filters - well done! And if you buy their iOS app (well worth it) they have the gradient tool there as well. I’ve been searching for this single capability for a long time. The number of times all you want to do is darken the sky a little as it’s over exposed and there’s nothing out there on iOS that will do it. Well now there is. Well done! Exceptional programming. Well that didn’t take long - just installed the update with the Photo’s extension and it’s perfect. Click, edit, save and you’re done. Again - incredibly impressive - thank you!.

Crap - It doesn’t even import your photo based on the order the photo was taken, or by the file name. Pretty crappy software.

Version 3.4.6
Review by demaws

Great app and design - way too many bugs - This app has great potential - lovely intuitive user interface, and super easy to learn your way around, all while retaining some serious technical chops. I’m mostly annoyed at many of the glaring bugs that are all over the app. * Crop and straighten never works right away. The rectangle is usually confused, and gives a poor indication of the current crop. * Applying the same adjustment might cause different results over different sessions - I have noticed that some basic adjustments might not turn out the same over repeat sessions might procure differnt resukts, and sometimes with heavy errors on the image. Many more around opening and saving photos. I’d be willing to try once the software is fixed.

Great App - Saving Error was fixed - Polarr is a fantastic app. Great functionality lots of tool and easier to use. Great alternative for some light photoediting and great enhancments without the need for complext/expensive software like photoshop. The saving/export issue has been fixed.
