Note: MonoPhix for Mac is 50% off today for launch day and is only 1.99$! Get it now.

We are proud to release our most powerful app ever written for an Apple device, MonoPhix for Mac. The big brother of the popular MonoPhix for iPhone and MonoPhix HD for iPad and the most powerful dedicated black and white photography app for any platform.

MonoPhix is an advanced photo editor, but this one is special, it is built to turn pictures into monochrome masterpieces and to give you full control of the outcome. You can easily control the intensity for each channel and each shade separately and you can add grain, blurs, highly adjustable vignetting and focus, color filters, colors blends and you can even use our experimental selective color feature to give some objects color while leaving the rest of the picture black and white.

Filters
You can apply one of the many presets or effects on your picture. Which allow you to get one click satisfying results which you can later customize using the adjustment panels.

Freestyle editing
MonoPhix has 10 tools to control the overal look of your monochrome picture. You can control the shadow and light tones separately or you can also control the color channels separately. MonoPhix contains 6 color filters to make some colors stand out. You can bring back some color by adjusting the transparency of the monochrome layer, you can add noise, overall blur, increase the contrast, brightness and exposure and posterize your picture.

Vignetting and Focus
With MonoPhix you can control every aspect of a picture’s vignetting. You can control the intensity, the roughness of the edges and shift the vignetting. You can also put a focus on certain objects by using the focus options similar to the vignetting controls.

Colors
You can give a custom color to your picture or control the blending mode which is used to mix the color with your black and white picture.

Selective color
With this experimental feature you can make objects pop out by keeping their color and removing all other colors.

Sharing 
MonoPhix has Phix Cloud integration which allows you to upload your pictures including metadata and a recipe of your changes and filters to our online service to show off to your friends or post on your Twitter or Facebook.

Device requirements
MonoPhix for Mac should run on any Mac built after 2008 running Mac OSX 10.6 or higher. MonoPhix is tested on Mountain Lion and is also optimized for it. The executable is only about 4Mb in size. An internet connection is also required for the sharing options.

Pricing and Availability
MonoPhix for Mac 1.0 is normally priced at $3.99 (USD) and available exclusively through the Mac App Store in the Photography or Graphics categories. Interested writers, reviewers and editors of recognized sites can always request a promo code to check it out for themselves.

Update: MonoPhix 3.3 – The most powerful black & white app, fixed.


Our line of Phix apps for iOS has been offline for a few days now because iOS6 caused all of them to crash upon opening an image. (Not our fault, Apple screwed up more things than just the maps app) But we are happy to announce that at least one of them, MonoPhix has returned to the App Store with a fix for the crash and some other improvements.

MonoPhix 3.3 has a slightly altered interface to host more sharing options (coming in the future) and to reduce the amount of clutter in the task bar. We’ve also already added one sharing option, share to Muzy, but it seems to be malfunctioning at the moment. This could be because the sharing API isn’t yet activated at Muzy’s end. And of course the crash has been fixed along with some memory usage tweaks.

We updated and submitted MonoPhix HD a few days ago and MonoPhix Lite for iPhone today. We are also working to bring FlashPhix and FlashPhix lite to version 3.0 with a new interface. This will fix the iOS6 crash on these apps and will bring them back to the App Store as well.

We apologize for the trouble and hope you enjoy MonoPhix 3.3 and all other apps. MonoPhix is available for download at http://itunes.apple.com/be/app/monophix-zwart-wit-filter/id333643515?l=nl&mt=8


Update: iPhix 1.1 for Mac OS X – Picture filters just got social.


We are pleased to announce the release of iPhix 1.1, an update meant to make the vintage photography and photo adjusting app for Mac OS X more social. This update adds the ability to share not only your pictures, but also a “recipe” of your filters and adjustments, a description of your picture and EXIF and location data. Your friends will be able to view these in the new online Phix.im service. Further improvements include 8 new filters and huge performance boosts.

Sharing with Phix Cloud

While the first version of iPhix had some sharing options to upload your picture, this version has integrated with Phix Cloud to offer the ability to upload and present EXIF data in a pleasant way. However the top improvement over the old sharing system is the ability to upload what you exactly did to get the desired effect on your picture. These “recipes” contain all adjustments and the effects that were applied on your picture. In this way everyone viewing your picture can replicate that exact look on their pictures. Additionally you can track the amount of views your picture got.

New filters

You can immediately try out the new sharing features with 8 new preset filters and effects. “Inky” gives your picture a blueish look as if blue gel was used in front of the flash bulb, “Woody” is a monochrome vintage effect which covers the picture in a gold hue, “Cool” makes the picture a bit more chilly, “Old Comic” imitates the style of old tainted comic books and “Dreamy” imitates the eighties style marriage pictures with a dreamy blur and bright colors. There are  also 3 new effects, “Stereo” which turn your picture into a stereoscopic 3D image, “Glass” which makes your picture look as if taken behind a tiled window and “Heatvision” an infrared effect.

Other minor improvements include a new preview image for the filter gallery, huge performance boosts and some minor bug fixes.

Get it while it’s hot. It’s still available for 3.99$. (Download link)

New App: iPhix for Mac – Create art with every snap. (Filter/adjust/share)

We are proud to release a product that has been in development for half a year now, iPhix for Mac. iPhix is an app that allows you to easily apply a multitude of filters or adjustments to pictures and share them online in a matter of seconds. It’s build to be easy and fun to use for everyone. iPhix provides enough power for professional photographers but can also be used by beginning photographers with almost no editing experience.

Adjustments
There are a huge number of adjustment possibilities present in iPhix. In the adjustments window you can change brightness, exposure, saturation, tone, contrast and apply posterization, cross processing, vignetting, grain, a tilt shift effect or blur to your pictures. All these adjustments can be combined to create magnificent effects. Examples of these are in the preset filters window.

The filters
iPhix currently contains 10 preset filters and one preset filter you can customize and save and 7 so called “solid” filters. This amount will increase with future updates. Preset filters are filters which control the adjustments mentioned earlier and are used to quickly apply vintage or flashy effects on pictures. You can always finetune a preset filter in the adjustments window. With the custom preset filter you can record and save a number of adjustments to create your own preset. The preset filters are called: Vivant, Deep Colors, Aged, Toned, Vintage, Mono, Noir, Expired, Daguerre, Sepia and Custom.

Solid filters are filters which are applied on the image and aren’t adjustable. Some solid filters can be adjusted in intensity though. These filters are much more invasive and transform your picture into a drawing for example. The solid filters are: Bizarre, Dots, Pop, Lithography, Edgy, Cutout and Inverse.

Sharing
Sharing has never been faster with iPhix. Most people have their social networking apps or pages open at any time, so why bother people with a “Log in to Facebook to share this picture”-dialog?
What the iPhix sharing options does is upload your picture to our iPhix Cloud servers instantaneously and provide you with a short link to your picture an online iPhix picture frame. All you have to do is copy the link to TweetDeck, Twitter, Facebook, Mail or anywhere you want.

Saving
When opening a picture for adjusting you expect everything to stay the same, except for the things you change. Therefore iPhix remembers your EXIF data and saves it along with your adjusted image. Your lens, aperture, flash settings, camera type, … all will be saved. iPhix also cuts the process of selecting a save filetype for you, all files are saved in the same filetype as the one they were opened in. Additionally it restores corrupted image orientations to ensure that your picture is always the right way up.

Device requirements
iPhix for Mac should run on any Mac built after 2008 running Mac OSX 10.6 or Mac OSX 10.7. iPhix is tested on Lion and is also optimized for it. The executable is only about 12Mb in size. An internet connection is also required for the sharing options.

Pricing and Availability
iPhix 1.0 is currently $3.99 (USD) and available exclusively through the Mac App Store in the Photography or Productivity categories. Interested writers, reviewers and editors of recognized sites can always request a promo code to check it out for themselves.
