Editors' review

With the proliferation of digital cameras and smartphones, even non-photographers have started taking and editing digital photos. However, traditional image-editing software may seem too complicated for beginners. This is where Snapheal for Mac may comes in handy. It offers to take the complexity away and achieves decent photo correction.

Snapheal for Mac offers a clean, user-friendly interface and is easy to use. The main functionality is the ability to erase entire objects or small imperfections. Typically, you can get rid of pesky skin spots on portraits or erase unwanted passers-by. There are three basic erase modes with some additional settings to help you achieve the best results. Options for tweaking all the classic photographic properties such as contrast, exposure, saturation, and more are present as well. Amateur photographers will appreciate an interface that is clear and not cluttered with too many elements. Even for a total beginner it will be really easy to discover this program and quickly get things done. Our results were generally correct but not perfect. The app is multicore/multithread capable so it can take advantage of a newer computer. For no apparent reason, multithreading wasn't actually kicking in every time. When your computer is busy processing, there is a random fun fact displayed alongside the progress bar to entertain you while you wait. Nice touch.

Neophyte photographers with basic needs will be able to rapidly achieve correct results with the easy-to-use Snapheal for Mac. With a 15-day fully unlocked demo there is no risk in trying it. Advanced users will probably prefer to stick with traditional feature-rich editing software that will provide better results and more options.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Snapheal for Mac 2.2.

    "Doesn't airbrush or remove objects from a photo"

    January 20, 2014   |   By Hazelvue

    Version: Snapheal 2.4

    Pros

    None that i could find - I downloaded this specifically to airbrush my arm in a photo and it just looked fuzzy but didn't remove it.

    Cons

    Didn't airbrush my arm which was sole purpose in downloading this software - doesn't remove the arm, it just makes it look like a fuzzy blob

    Summary

    Snapheal is not an erase or airbrush program. it might work for minor repairs like fuzzing up acne or some other unwanted detail but it can't remove unwanted objects, body parts or effectively airbrush an object in a photo. Still looking for the right solution for this that doesn't require knowing Photoshop.

    Snapheal does what it promises!

    March 28, 2013   |   By Jonny_Bar

    Version: Snapheal 2.2

    Pros

    For me it's much better than other photo editing apps I used. Now I can make my favorite photos look so bright and so amazing :) Erase works like a charm.

    Cons

    I like this app. Anyway, I agree with MackeanCraig that adding Watermark would be great!

    Summary

    I'm happy with my purchase :)

    "about one photo shoot"

    March 18, 2013   |   By RobertMCrittenden

    Version: Snapheal 2.2

    Pros

    I bought the app and used to remove the objects. I didn't believe that the photos could be retouched so easily. I've beeing shooting my dog in the yard. The problem is there is much stuff on the background. Well guess what, Snapheal was able to remove it and I got gorgeous pics of my dog.

    Cons

    I haven't found them yet.

    Summary

    Amazing. I highly recommend this software!

    "Good piece of software"

    March 18, 2013   |   By RonaldJensen

    Version: Snapheal 2.2

    Pros

    I've just come back from the journey. I've made a lot of photos and was happy to find snapheal. It's a great removal app. I got rid of many annoying tourists on my landscapes with the help of it. I also like a lot the adjustment toolset here.

    Cons

    To erase big areas or apply clone&stamp tool with bid diameter you will need to wait a litle bit longer than when you're working with small objects

    Summary

    I'm pretty happy with the resluts. Though, frankly speaking I didn't expect such quality from a $10 app :)

    "Great value and works fine"

    March 15, 2013   |   By MackeanCraig

    Version: Snapheal 2.2

    Pros

    The app works fine on Macbook Pro (Lion) and iMac (Mountain Lion). I crop lots of scans of old documents to straighten them up and get rid of the black borders and the crop control is great - much easier and quicker than PS. No problem so far.

    Cons

    The option for a watermark would complete this program

    Summary

    Its quicker and far more simple to use than other programs - and it does the job well.

    "One of my favorite apps"

    March 12, 2013   |   By PabloTripp

    Version: Snapheal 2.2

    Pros

    This app is amazing. I use it all the time. But rarly to take out objects but to edit the contrast and ect. but thanks to the new version I can do witch spots I would like to !

    Cons

    One thing to make this app even better is a tilt-shift or a blur tool, if you can add that option this would be the best photography app in my opinion.

    Summary

    Very handy and easy to you. The app brings really awesome resuts.

    "Perfect for quick quality touch ups"

    March 11, 2013   |   By Inventimo

    Version: Snapheal 2.2

    Pros

    I love the simplicity and toolset, basically the app has everything aspiring photographer needs, but unlike in other apps you don't overpay for either name or amount of tools. Erasing algorithm work great in 90% of cases, adjust and retouch tools are just as they should be. In a word, this is a really great tool to fix images and perform complex edits. Highly recommended to those who keeps his pics in iPhoto and wants to go beyond basic photo editing.

    Cons

    As I said, erasing works in 90% of cases. Still needs some improvements.
    Doesn't work as PS plug-in, for such app it's mandatory.

    Summary

    Great and simple tool for almost everyone. Goes beyond basic iPhoto tools and offers much more than most of other photo apps. Has a set of features any descent photographer would need. Snapheal is especially great to help you get rid of extra objects, or fixing scratches. Almost PhotoShop quality when comes to fixing skin spots and cloning. 5 out of 5 stars from me.
