Diffraction is a first class photos and image editor built from the ground up for macOS. With Diffraction you can color correct and retouch your photos, make creative compositions with layers and masks, or create your own images from scratch.
Create compositions with layers and layer masks. Adjustment layers allow you to losslessly color correct your images.
Diffraction documents can contain multiple pages, so working with image files formats that do support multiple images in one file – like TIFF – is not a problem.
With filters you can sharpen or blur your images, add distortion effects, apply halftone patterns to make your images look like comics or newspaper prints, or pointilize an image to give it a painterly look.
Diffractions powerful editing tools allow you to crop your images, paint or erase, draw gradients, or retouch your images with dodge & burn, clone stamp and spot removal tools.
Create stunning designs with more than 30 built-in high quality patterns.
Or define your own.
With just on button click Diffraction will automatically make amazingly accurate selection masks around persons.
