JixiPix Software (http://www.jixipix.com/) has released a Mac (OS X 10.6 or later) version of its Dramatic Black & White photo app. It’s introductory-priced at US$5.99, is available at the Mac App Store, and sports JixiPix’s ellipse spotlight tool that enables users to bring focus and form to multiple sections of a photo.
Dramatic Black & White comes loaded with 36 presets that deliver a variety of classic, infrared and dramatic black and white looks. Each preset allows customization to a range of parameters, including light, contrast, texture and form.
Users can name and save their own custom presets, allowing an unlimited number of combinations. Edits immediately display onscreen while final high-resolution images are rendered when you save them. Created photos can be saved to numerous formats, including JPEG, PNG, and TIFF.
