Snapheal arrives on Mac App Store

Snapheal for the Mac was released on the Mac App Store earlier this morning. Brought to you by MacPhun, makers of the excellent iOS photo editing app FX Photo Studio (TMA Review), Snapheal lets you perform object removals and other complex touch ups without any prior knowledge of photoshop. It’s a matter of choosing areas you want to remove/touch up, hitting a button, and Snapheal’s algorithm does the rest. Here’s what it do:

  • Remove unwanted objects from the image
  • Make skin imperfections vanish
  • Erase unwanted text (watermarks, etc)
  • Dramatically enhance photos with clone & stamp tool
  • Lighten dark areas
  • Sharpen images
  • Add blur
  • Import pictures from Aperture and iPhoto
  • Adjust saturation, gamma, light levels, shadows and much more

Judging from the demo video, Snapheal does work “magic” and it truly makes removing objects from photos a painless process. Best of all, you won’t have to spend a whole lot for this promising photo app. Normally at $19.99, Snapheal is now on sale for only $9.99. Check out the videos and full app description after the break.
