Seashore for Mac

By Mark Pazolli Software Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff May 28, 2013

Suitable for basic image editing, Seashore for Mac offers some useful tools and options that will appeal to less experienced users. The program is free and performs as expected, but could really use a better looking and more user-friendly interface.

Upon startup there will be a small pop-up window where you can choose to create a new image or open an existing one. Here you can set up an image's width and height, resolution, and mode. There is an option to set a transparent background, too. After the program starts you will be greeted with a rather basic interface. The tools are clearly displayed on the centralized menu bar while layers and image data are found in the sidebar. However, the amount of tools available was disappointing. The interface, while functional, is not appealing and could use a real makeover. The file format support is limited to GIMP, TIFF, and GIF formats, which is a downside as there should be more formats supported in a program of this type. Overall, this program looks like it's still in its beta stage as it needs more work to become appealing to a wider audience.

Seashore for Mac lacks the advanced options found in other image editors. We recommend it only for amateur photographers and beginners who need to perform some basic image editing functions.
