Casual shooters still get all the tools they need to make a good
photo great, and pros get extended fine-tuning and integration
with other graphics programs to make great photos soar.
It’s a dead simple app to use. It might be the best Skylum effort yet.
Specialty focus lets you concentrate on composition and artistic rendering,
swift performance, a variety of controls, easy to use for both amateurs and pros.

Here’s what Focus users say
Sarah Allred Easy, intuitive, and full of tools I use a LOT. This rad program let's me pretend I have all sorts of fancy filters, and expensive lenses, simply by dragging and dropping how I want the blur to go! Achievable in Lightroom and Photoshop? Yes, but I am all about efficiency. I would much rather drag and drop a few blur circles to create this than load the image into Photoshop, cry, work on it some more, cry a tad more, then export.
Tsetsoh Make Common Look Extraordinary! This app takes only minutes to learn, but the built-in features make this a very powerful tool. You can quickly turn an ordinary snapshot into an fascinating story. I use this app by itself often. But I have also added this to my photo-editing workflow. It plays nicely with my other apps. If you are a beginner or a pro this will be something you can use immediately.
Clinton Dyches Terrific for quick editing... Particularly for portraits! I love this little app - it's perfect for a quick selective focus and I find that I use it mainly for portraits. I find myself using it at least twice a week. And for the price I feel that I’ve definitely picked a winner.
