Process is on sale right now for only 99¢!

Submitted by on September 14, 2012 – 9:16 pm 9 Comments

My own “Over-LOMOed” filter from Process.

Photo app Process is a very good, versatile, very powerful image editor and filter app. Its dial-based adjustments allow you to make more precise tweaks than apps with an adjustment slider. It features real-time, hardware-accelerated editing. It has one of the best non-destructive editing and layering of effects workflows on the iPhone. You can delete any single effect in the processing history — it’s pretty cool!

Process is on sale right now for only $0.99. It’s normally $4.99 and most recently $9.99. It’s a very good app, but I think ten bucks is expensive for most iOS photo apps. If you’ve been curious about the app, 99¢ is a great price point to introduce yourself to this app.

The workflow is powerful, yet very easy to pick up. There are plenty of filter presets and it’s easy to create your own. That’s one of the many great features of this app. And few photo apps give you the level of precision to make adjustments that Process does.

One of the complaints I have about the app is that the latest version is less stable than other photo apps. It has a tendency to crash more often than average. Hopefully, stability issues will be addressed and a one dollar purchase gets you into the upgrade path.

While I believe that iOS app developers should show a profit from their work, I think Process is normally priced way too high at this juncture in the App Store, especially compared to other photo apps available. So, grab it now while it’s on sale. This discount is for a limited time only. Once you have it, Process is a great app to easily explore, create and save your own photo effects.

Requirements: Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later.

UPDATE: Fixed a sentence. I think ten bucks *is* expensive for most iOS apps.

    I tried this app out simply for the $$ savings and to get in on the update train, but it was kinda disappointing. I liked the slider feature (very reminiscent of MillColor app) but the pre-sets were kinda disappointing (I think they need lots of natural light) and the previews were pixelated for me. Also, I found out that if you try to tweak a pre-set too many times (like edit 3 processes), the app crashes. Crashes and freezes up my phone and forces a hard reset. Sad face!

    Will keep an eye out for this app as I see the possibilities, but right now it's a bit too much work to get it going.

      Hi, Miki!

      I thought of Mill Colour's precision adjustments when I was testing this app. Sounds like I had better luck with this app than you, but definitely not by much, even after a shutdown and reboot. I'm hoping that there's an update soon which addresses the stability issue.

        It could be that I had too many apps in the background taking up memory…but I hate having a memory hog app that requires me to shut everything else down. Still, I think this app has a lot of potential and the editing tools are a great feature.

        The fact that this app is priced so high in the first place though raises my eyebrows a bit! I would think this is the most expensive photo editing app in the marketplace right now (for base price, not counting in-app purchases like Hipstamatic)? For $10, I would have expected at the least a stable app.

    Got it now, but is there any possibility to check out Processes from other users? Would be very interesting to test some, e.g. yours :)

    It keeps on crashing on my iPhone 4S! It crashed 3x in a row, twice without actually saving the image. I only did auto enhance plus vignette just to get a feeling for the app. I'm glad I only waisted £.69. Can't imagine paying $4.99-9.99 for this piece of …

      Hi, Jiri,

      Did you try shutting down all of your apps and rebooting your device? While it won't fix all of the stability issues in the current version, it may help keep it in a usable state for you for a few images.

        Hi Marty,

        I did not have many apps running so I did not try. I just simply deleted the app from my phone. I might give it a try after the next update. I used many apps, even still in version 1, and I have never experienced anything like this. It is disappointing as apparently Flare for Mac is by the same developer and I use it on my Mac without any problems.

          I know that sometimes with very finicky apps, you have to reinstall the app after a hard reboot to get them working properly.

          I haven't had to do this with any app lately, but back when the app store was fairly new there was always one or two that I had to go through this process with.

            It is an intensive app, but that's no excuse for crashes. Apparently there's an issue with iOS that does not give a memory warning using OpenGL, so many levels of adjustments could cause a memory spike that would result in a crash. Process 3 deals with this a bit better, so it should be more stable.
