PhotoStyler is a free and simple photo editing app for Mac.

While not at the same level as semi-professional software like Photoshop, PhotoStyler is a great way of adding some cool effects to your photos. Sepia, aged, shadows, 3D-look and city lights are just some of the effects available to take your images from average to pretty cool in a matter of minutes.

The beauty of PhotoStyler is that you don’t actually need any special knowledge to apply the effects. Just drag your photo into the PhotoStyler interface and choose the effect you want. You photo will appear in a new editing window - you’ll see the result in real time and, if you want, you can tweak the settings in the right hand side of the window.

Apart from PhotoStyler's “artistic” pre-sets, you’ll be able to use some basic photo editing tools by clicking on the plus symbol at the bottom of the window. You’ll also be able to save preset effect configurations for future use. Images can be saved as .PNG or .JPG and, crucially, can also be exported in batch mode.

PhotoStyler is great for a quick fix and makes the perfect app for someone who wants to add interest to their photos without a steep learning curve.
