love this on the iPhone. couldnt wait for the mac app - I love this apps so much on the iPhone that I found myself emailing photos to my iPhone just to process and then send back to photoshop on my mac for final refinish. Now I can do it all on my Mac. Same basic controls as the iphone app. A great 1.0 version. Wil only get better with time. -- JJ

Makes Nice Images; Needs Improvement in Design and Controls - Like many others, I had hopes for this software, being a big fan of the iPhone version. The Mac version of this app still produces excellent hand-drawn style images, with a fair amount of control over the finished product. And that's mostly what counts. But the interface needs major work. The preview is clunky, shrinking to fit the image by default (and thus obscuring the detail), and taking a fair amount of time to (inefficiently) zoom in or out on the preview. The actual editing window lacks the style and usability expected of a Mac app (though iPhone users will recognize the contols and layout). Lastly, there needs to be a separate slider for adjusting the outlines in the new image without adding blacks or greys to the whole image. Not a terrible start on the Mac, but has a ways to go to warrant a 5-star rating.

Horrible! - Extremely limited control over images! Took a chance with this app and I am very sad.

Review by Mister Beeeeee

It is not as nice as the iPhone version - I was really excited when I saw this was available. I want the ability to create the higher resolution toon paints. This one does allow me to do that so for that I can give it 3 stars, But it lacks the nice user interface, It looks very incomplete. The images I can create are decent and in some cases real nice. As for the user interface though it seems super cheesy. This has been one of my all time favorite filter / photo effect programs on my iPhone and my iPads. Please work on making this a finished product because $9.99 is too high for the program presented as it is. Honestly, I wanted to rave about this product to friends but not yet.

Review by canyonsmitty

This is a great program! - I believe some of the other reviewers have unfairly compared this app to the iPad/iPhone apps by the same developer. This is unfortunate as the programs have a different character. ToonPhoto does not have the pencil sketching aspects of ToonPaint HD, but deals with the cartoon effects in a different manner. The conrols are simple but I find them subtle and quite effective. I do believe that if the Developers can combine the controls of both apps in one program and manage to keep all controls independent they will have an awesome app. I encourage them to continue their development. I have tried a lot of photo/sketch apps in the past and believe this developer has gotten closer to the intent of such programs than most if not all others. I have held back from the five stars because I believe they can take this further as pointed out above. When they produce a combined package with the same quality I will unhesitatingly give all five stars!
