Make images look gorgeous for the web

Picturesque is the ideal program to add a finishing touch to your pictures, polishing them off before sharing with others.

The application showcases your selected images from the strip on the top of the interface. Just click on one to bring it up and start editing. Picturesque offers five specific effects: perspective, reflection, shadow, curve, and stroke. I was very impressed by the 3D effect given in perspective and the reflection. The way effects are added onto your pictures is also really impressive.

All changes made to an image are saved as presets, which you can view in the list on the right of the interface. This is very handy for batch editing images. Just select the ones you want to change when your preset is set. You can add as many presets as you want.

Although Picturesque lacks any proper image editing tools, it offers a great set of snazzy effects to turn your pictures into masterpieces.
