Two years ago, Apple ditched its photo-editing app iPhoto for the redesigned and newly-named Photos app. As part of that transition, the Cupertino-based company announced its new Photos app would support third-party extensions to help make it more powerful and customizable for users.
Known photo app developer MacPhun recently decided to take advantage of this new functionality with its app Filters for Photos. Now, along with the app, MacPhun has announced that it will include 30 free filters to go along use inside the app.
The various filters range from vintage-inspired colorizations to oil-painting renditions. Admittedly, the filters aren’t overly impressive, but considering it’s one of the few apps designed specifically as an extension for Apple’s Photos app, it’s a good opportunity to take the experience for a spin if you use the Photos app for your smartphone or basic photography needs.
In addition to basic filters, MacPhun has included additional other features in Filters for Photos.
Most notably, you can control the intensity of each filter and apply them selectively over an image using the brush tool. When you’re finished editing the photo, you can either save it back to Photos or export it to social media networks or other programs such as Photoshop and Aperture.
