Macphun’s Snapheal, an extremely easy to use photo editing software for Mac and highlighted by Apple as “Best of 2012″ in the photography section, is now Free until September 3rd. Normally priced at $14.99, Snapheal lets users remove objects, blemishes, text and other unwanted distractions from photos - as well as perform general image enhancements - with just a few clicks. It’s certainly not as feature laden or powerful as Photoshop, but for what it does, it does it well and fast. To score your free copy, head over to Snapheal’s giveaway page and enter your name and email. Then share it either on Twitter, Facebook or Google+ and the download link and activation code will be sent to your inbox. Check out more info and the app in action after the break.
Color Splash Studio for the iPhone and Mac will soon be getting a major update (with a new UI and “exceptional” features) and Macphun has decided to give the app a whole new name (probably has to do with the fact that it sounds awfully similar to Color Splash - one of the first of its kind on the App Store). Basically, the app converts photographs into black and white and users can easily keep certain areas in its original color, thus give it a more dramatic effect. And this is where you come in. As part of the name change challenge, Macphun has invited you to come up with a new name, with the winner taking home a $500 gift card, a mention in all PR materials, along with 10 copies of the app and free copies of other apps by MacPhun. If you’re feeling creative and wish to enter, simply head over to the New Name landing page and enter the required details. The Color Splash Studio apps are well received on the App Store and currently on sale as well ($0.99 for iPhone, $2.99 for Mac).
