Polarr Photo Editor Just 99¢
Polarr is a comprehensive image editing app that works stand-alone or as an extension to OS X Photos. It's normally $19.99, but is a whopping 95% off for just a couple more days in honor of Earth Day. At 99¢, it's worth grabbing it “just because”!
I've never heard of Polarr before today, but quickly downloaded it and had a brief play. It definitely has a ton of features; far more editing tools than Photos has built-in.
It supports RAW by using Apple's OS X RAW engine, and what's really great is that you can send a RAW file straight to it from Photos natively. Just open a RAW file in Photos to start to edit it… be sure you don't do any editing in Photos… and when you send the image to Polarr, the RAW file will come through!
I did notice some UI oddity when working in full screen mode… the image I had imported was distorted, but not when viewing in A/B mode. As soon as I got out of full screen however, it restored to normal.
Given the price, you can't go wrong. This sale only is for this week, so I'd definitely recommend grabbing it now. Even if you end up never using it… it's only 99¢. Plus half of their revenue this week is going to the Conservation International Foundation. Nice one.
I had a quick look at this on video as well… it's an impressive app. I have to say I'm quite blown away at the feature set of this little editor!
