It doesn't matter if you're new to photography or a pro, Polarr Pro Photo Editor for Mac has it all. Novices will appreciate that It offers advanced auto-enhance tools and sophisticated filters to edit all the details of your photo. Pro photographers will look forward to layer support, curve tools, local adjustments and so much more.

Polarr for macOS users on desktop platforms like Mac or Windows has access to some advanced functionality when it comes to exporting images in batches. This is a feature for power users and anyone else needing to export a bunch of photos that are in a series.

It introduced a new feature called the Border tool. This Polarr Photo Editor Pro tool allows you to quickly and easily add borders to your photos. It's an intelligent tool that will suggest a border color based on the colors available in your photo. You can, of course, select any color you want.

Exporting your photos with the app is easy, yet powerful with the included controls. When exporting in the tool, you can do things like change image quality settings, image dimensions, and even add a watermark. Here's a quick overview of what you can do when exporting your photos with the program.

You can use a Gradient mask anytime you wish to edit sections of your photos in straight lines. This is especially useful in landscape photography with flat horizons. The Gradient mask makes it easy to make edits to the sky of those photos. But like with most tools, the Gradient mask is only limited by your creativity. Here's a quick overview of the Gradient mask in the app.

Whenever you apply an adjustment to a photo in Polarr Photo Editor for Mac you're presented with a slider to control it. This slider shows up when you do things like make a global adjustment or smooth skin tones. But here's a pro tip for mobile users wanted to make adjustments even faster: use the adjustment pad itself.

A Radial mask only affects a circular area of your photo. It's especially great for making subjects stand out against the rest of an image. In the photo editor, you'll find the Radial mask with all of the other masks in the local adjustments panel. Select it to try it out.

There are a few ways to customize the software to make it uniquely yours. One of those ways is by customizing the theme of the app. There are four default themes included within the app. And you can customize your own!
