CNET Editors' review
PhotoStyler for Mac offers a number of tools for quick, automated editing and filtering of your digital photos on a Mac. It is by no means a replacement for expensive, feature-rich graphics editing software. Rather it's more like the photo editing and filtering software you would find on the iOS App Store, except with a lot more options and an easier-to-use interface because of the greater resources of a Mac.
When you open PhotoStyler for the first time it takes a few moments to boot up. We tested this on two machines and had the same experience, but subsequent openings were faster, so it's not an ongoing problem. In the left sidebar you can turn on and off any number of different preset filter categories. Whatever is on when you drag and drop a photo will be applied, and it will automatically show you the filter for everyone you have selected. You can then click on any one of the photo samples on the screen to work with it and save it or share it. The interface is very sharp and intuitive, and while there are a lot of filters to sort through, it never feels overwhelming. The star ratings are an added touch that helps to find the best options for your images.
If you want a photo editing and filtering tool for your Mac that can be set up and used quickly to make automated changes to your photos, consider PhotoStyler. It's free to try but will require a $29 upgrade to continue using the full version. For those that filter a lot of images, either for the Web or for personal use, it may be worth it.
Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of PhotoStyler for Mac 6.7.
PhotoStyler is the easiest way to style your digital photos with your Mac. This simple, fast and accurate native solution combines the powers of Apple's core technologies with the flexibility and efficiency of proprietary application-specific modules. PhotoStyler supports all image formats that are supported by MacOS including RAW images, it uses your GPU to process the photos wherever possible, and it turns photo styling work into fun. Once you've used PhotoStyler to style your first photo you'll appreciate the speed with which you're able to achieve results you'll love.

Do not make the mistake of thinking that this is a replacement for very expen$ive graphics software. It has a specific niche and it fills it exceedingly well.
