During my 30 plus years career as a professional photographer and lab owner I have chemically developed thousands of black & white images, and utilized a number of high-end black and white software solutions in my creative endeavors. MacPhun’s Tonality Pro is in a league all its own. No other black and white software offers the subtle tonal variation, ease of use, degree of versatility, and professional image quality afforded with the proprietary 16 bit RAW processing engine. The advanced adaptive algorithms are cutting edge, the degree of global and selective control options combined with multiple layer, blend mode, and preservation of color data afford the digital artist unprecedented creative control.  This software will definitely expand your creative horizons. 

Highly recommended for any photographer seriously considering taking their imagery to the next level.

Look for my how-to webinars on Tonality and other MacPhun software on the MacPhun website.
