Snapheal is a superb Mac app that makes it easier than easy to fix and modify your photos. It is especially brilliant at removing unwanted objects in a flash with just a few clicks. I’m happy to see it was recognized by Apple in their listing of the Mac App Store Best of 2012.
Here’s a little more on the app via its Mac App Store page:
REMOVE unwanted objects from photos, FIX bad skin, RESTORE damaged pictures and perform more complex edits faster and better than most other photo editing apps.
With no special learning you’ll get superb results.

You may have noticed that I very rarely post about a non-iPad app here. The reason for the exception here is twofold. Firstly, I’m a big fan and frequent user of the app. I’ve been using Snapheal since the day it was released and I love the app. It has helped me out with removing unwanted items from photos – a serial number, an unsightly bit of dust on an accessory shot there – more times than I care to recall.
Also, an iPad version of Snapheal is in the works – so hopefully I’ll be telling you how well it works on the iPad sometime soon.
In the meantime, if you’re a Mac user you can grab it for half price ($9.99) in the Mac App Store right now. It’s listed as a ‘holiday special’ – so it may not be around for long.
