Photo filters are all the rage these days, with plenty of mobile and PC software designed to give modern photographs a vintage look. The difference between a filter and effect is sometimes difficult to determine with more elaborate apps appearing, though generally speaking an effect will completely transform your image much like Elemento EZ for Mac does it.
The app is designed to perform one simple function – transform your photos into wood, metal or fabric representations. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but what it does it does well. It’s not a simple case of selecting an effect and clicking a button, there are texture presets, sliders for shadows, midtones and highlights and the ability to crop your resulting photo down to size.
Elemento EZ can work its magic on PNG, JPG and TIFF files and bring all the effects featured in iOS apps like Metal Me, Knitted Cam and Woodboard Me together under one free Mac app. Once you’ve finished adding the effect you’d like it’s easy to print, save and share your creation with your friends using the inbuilt tools.
- Transform photographs into textured wood, metal or fabric.
- Modify the severity of the effect using sliders for shadows, midtones and highlights.
- Print, save and share your creation easily from the app.
- Zoom, pan and crop your image.
