I recently purchased a copy of the Mac App Flare – a great little program, which through the use of photographic effects and filters allows you to easily apply a range of stylistic alterations to your imported images, and then save those setting combinations as a collective preset. Any of the existing application presets can also be altered or added to, plus there’s a growing community of people creating and sharing their own presets via the web community – neat!

I’ve selected some of my recent photographs taken at the Adelaide Zoo, and after checking out options, have happily added a bit of life into a number of images that needed a little spark. It’s a lot like my familiar Photoshop process for editing and enhancing images, just handily assembled all within one easy to use interface, with a variety of options just one click away. Many of the rather funky effects that are available don’t work for these types of images, but there are a lot of visually bold directions to take your photo in, if you wish to do so.

Enjoy the pics!
