Software developer MacPhun has announced a new app for Mac OSX users that comes with 30 photo filter effects, and which is being offered as a free download. The Filters for Photos application can be downloaded as an extension to Apple’s own Photos program or as a standalone product. It provides one-click effects in a similar way to Instagram, and comes with sketch, oil painting, color tones, black and white, and grain styles - among others. Once applied the filters can be down-played and adjusted according the characteristics of that effect, and users can apply multiple filters to a single image.

When finished, filtered images can be exported directly to social media or other MacPhun and Adobe software programs, or they can be saved to the hard drive.

Filters for Photos can be downloaded from: macphun.com/filtersforphotos.
