Last month I introduced an app called FX Photo Studio for Macs and iPhones. Since then MacPhunn has added masking which allows you to add or erase effect filters. Here’s an example using the Moon photo I showed you last spring.
While this is neat. I really want to see the moon details better. I selected to add instead the effect in the space surrounding our planet’s satellite. It works like brushes in a photo editing program like Aperture 3 or PhotoShop. You can alter the brush manually for size, softness and opacity or use one of the presets. It was easy to paint the effect in with a large brush and then use smaller ones to trim around the moon’s edges. I had to switch from paint to erase to do the final cleanup.
Here is the result.
Looks like something out of Star Trek, doesn’t it?
