Perhaps you’ve noticed that I’ve used PhotoToaster in some recent images. I have to say its great when you don’t feel like editing everything manually. There are some great filters included and you also have the ability to fine tune them after applying them.
If you want to get everything done in one click, you can choose the little globe icon on the bottom left and select the global preset you want. If you’d like a little more control, you can apply filters in up to 5 different categories including: lighting, effects, vignette, textures, borders. If you want to do everything manually, just select one of those categories and instead of applying a filter, you can switch to sliders mode and make your own adjustments. When you’re done with all of your adjustments you can even save them and turn them into a preset filter.
This is what the layout looks like.
Here is a look at some global presets. There are 4 different categories that you can access by touching the dial in the bottom left corner. They are basic, deluxe, supreme, and your presets.
- Great textures
- Good variety of nice borders
- You can make your own filters/presets
- Very easy to use and can be enjoyed by users of all levels
- The vignettes aren’t appealing to me
- Lack of a noise reduction feature
This is my most recent image edited with PhotoToaster.
This is a great alternative to customizable filter apps like Magic Hour and Process. I actually prefer this one over those because of the ease of use and beautiful results. I think its well worth the price to keep as an option for quick editing.
