Editors' Review

In spite of its small size, Intaglio for Mac puts at your fingertips all the essential graphic design tools you need for enhancing images or creating basic websites. This isn't by any means a replacement for Photoshop, but can come in handy when you're doing light work.


Small but powerful: Intaglio for Mac comes with a small installer and remains small even after installation, so that it's actually several times smaller than more powerful graphic design programs, while offering all the same essential features.

Accessible: If you've used or are using Photoshop, you'll find it easy to adapt to this app's design workflow. The interface and tools are accessible even without tutorials.

Uses layers: Because it supports layers, it beats many online graphic design platforms, which either don't support layers or do it clumsily.


Not for professionals: Professionals who have been using Photoshop or other established graphic design apps will find Intaglio limiting by comparison. It does not have the full suite of features a professional needs to complete more sophisticated projects.

ZIP file inside a DMG: While the app is easy to install, the installer comes as a ZIP file embedded inside a DMG file. This is a redundancy, which only increases the file size of the download.

Bottom Line

Intaglio for Mac can do most of what bigger and more established apps can do, making it good for beginners, especially since it's easy to install and learn. But it's unfit for professionals. If you're already using Photoshop or another full-fledged graphic design app, you don't really need this one.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Intaglio for Mac 3.5.2.
