Monochrome

Version: 2.1.1 || Release Date: 2014-06-10 || License: Commercial with demo ($19.99) Developer: Douglas Welton | App Owner: lucianmarin

Monochrome converts batches of color images to grayscale, giving you control over the conversion method and applied effects, so you can create a consistent-looking set of output images. Monochrome gives you a large number of options for previewing your images and also lets you share and print your images in a variety of ways.

• Improved Conversion
Monochrome gives you the option to convert images using either an RGB or HSL-based color mixer, simple or advanced selective color desaturation, or monotone color re-mapping. All rendering is handled by the GPU to ensure fast, effective processing.

• Batch Processing
Monochrome exports converted images using a background task. This allows you to continue work on other task without waiting for the image processing to finish. Use the Activity Monitor to track the progress of your exports.

• Image Previews
Monochrome features six modes for viewing images: original image, the converted image, two overlay mode showing both the original and converted image in the same location, and two stacked mode showing the original and converted images side-by-side.

• Sharing
Monochrome can share converted images via e-mail, using popular internet services (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, etc.) or with local applications like iPhoto or Aperture. Also, you can drag'n'drop or cut'n'paste the preview image to other applications.

• Printing
Monochrome provides three templates for printing your images: one image per page, an image grid contact sheet, or image slices. Print operations can also be saved as PDF files.

• Slide Shows
Monochrome dynamically creates a slide show from the converted images in your project. Slide shows display full screen and can be navigated manually or as a timed slide show.

• Image Effects
The rendering pipeline now includes thirty new effects, such as edge burning, X-rays, motion blurring and pixelation. For efficiency, these effects are rendered on the GPU.

• Single Window User Interface
Monochrome operations have been consolidated into a single window, giving you an easy and effective tool for manipulating your images.
