Even a grumpy curmudgeon such as myself has to admit there are some great things about the Christmas period – namely the rampant discounting that accompanies all the rampant consumerism of the Yuletide season. MacPhun are the latest in a line of app developers to slash prices across the board.



This includes their new app Cartoonatic+ for the iPhone that lets you add 14 hand drawn filters to photos and videos. A 99 cent diversion for what used to be a very expensive Photoshop effect.

Bit too frivolous for your tastes? Snapheal for Mac is also pretty cool and lets you perform “professional” image enhancements in a few clicks. Sure you there are many image editors out there, but few have Snapheal’s “My Mum could do that” level of simplicity for sharpening, enhancing or removing unwanted images (photo bombers beware).
