Compositor for Mac review

Transform your images into amazing artwork easily using many filters.

Compositor for Mac is a feature-packed image editor that lets you transform your images into true works of art. Apart from giving you the basic image editing tools, it also offers tons of cool filters and photo manipulation tools. You can turn your image into an impressionist painting or something contemporary or edgy -- the possibilities are endless.

Similar to most other Mac apps, Compositor for Mac is very easy to install, and you'll have 30 days to try it out before purchasing. Do keep in mind that some action runs are limited until you register the software. Once launched, the program opens by default in its "Tool Mode" where you have five, small windows typical for image editors, such as Tools palette, History, Snapshots, Brush Control, and Actions Control. You have all of the common tools at your disposal, such as wand, paint bucket, color picker, crop, brush, eraser, and similar. Apart from the "Tool Mode," you can also switch to "Frame Mode" or "Mat Mode," which give you even more possibilities. Under "FilterVille" in the Menu Bar you'll find a large collection of filters you can apply to your images separated into categories, from the most common ones such as Blur and Distort to more advanced filter options such as Esoteric and Image Lab. Apart from enjoying the vast amount of filters at our disposal, we also loved the Snapshots feature, which allowed us to drag and drop for instant image blending. Once you're done with editing, you can export your files in most popular formats such as PNG, TIFF, and JPEG.

Easy to use and packed with an array of filters and tools, Compositor for Mac is suitable for an artist, photographer, and anyone else who enjoys editing and enhancing their images. While certainly not the cheapest option when it comes to image editors, this software is powerful enough to satisfy all your image handling and manipulation needs.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Compositor for Mac 3.2.1.
