Free Photo retouching for Mac
LiveQuartz is a simple image editor. It is based on layers and CoreImage filters.
Layer compositing for Everyone.
LiveQuartz makes layer management very easy. With its layers list, you can add, remove, drag, drop, re-order and merge layers in a very intuitive and non-destructive way.
Touch your layers.
On multi-touch trackpad enabled Macs, you can use gestures:
‘Swipe’ for tools and layer control, ‘Pinch & Expand’ for magnification and layer zoom transformation and layer ‘Rotation’.
Dynamic filters for Everyone.
LiveQuartz is born around the same time as CoreImage. Since then, LiveQuartz has a very powerful non-destructive filters list for each of its layers.
In LiveQuartz, adding a filter becomes even easier with the new standard Leopard filter picker.
One window user interface.
LiveQuartz has all of its user interface in one window. Available tools settings appear as you select the tool.
Layers and Filters list can be hidden easily to have all the window space available for your photo.
The software is localized in 11 languages.
Requires Mac OS X Leopard.
