What users say:
Taken from the Ubuntu Software Center User Reviews:
“Having been a longtime b&w film photographer before going digital, this is a nice app that lets you take your digital color photos (as .jpg or .tif – did not try other formats yet) and make them into black & white photos. I love the selection of film types you can select. You can play around with a variety of filters (effects) to get just the effect you want without much of a learning curve. If you want to play around with black and white without a darkroom, this is a quick and easy app to use.” – 5 out of 5 stars
“Although I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 and Nikon Capture NX2, I believe in giving the more obscure system a try against the Big Boys in the Graphic Arena and so far I have used this system twice with no crashes and it is absolutely superb in bringing out the detail in a photographic print – and I will be using this system when I present my Portfolio to the Royal Photographic Society (of which I am a member) to gain an LRPS Distinction.” – 5 out of 5 stars
“Great App! Easy to use and good functionality! Thanks!” – 4 out of 5 stars
