Macphun Tonality Photo Editing Software Review For Inspiring Black & White Photography

Macphun’s Tonality CK black and white photography software is my favorite piece of photo editing software at the moment. You can create inspiring black and white photos, photos with just a hint of color, add awesome texture overlays, vignettes, grain, photo frames, and you have the ability to make many fine adjustments. I really think Macphun’s Tonality CK is a great piece of professional Black and White photography software for Mac, so I wanted to share my experience with it and show some examples of what I have done with it. I also have some of my user Tonality Presets under the photo examples below, so you can download and use them if you want.

I currently live in Switzerland so some of the photos below are from Switzerland and Italy. I will upload some from France, Germany, and England when I get a chance, because I know I have some good photos  that would look great as a black and white photos. I am originally from Upper Michigan, where we are called Yoopers. The photo of the horse and carriage is from the great little island called Mackinaw Island,  in Mackinaw City, Michigan. I really love going to that island in the summer. The rest of the photos below are from Chicago, the place my swiss wife calls her second home, because she was a nanny there for about a year when she was in her early twenties.

Tonality Batch Processing Option

Most of the buttons on the Tonality top tool bar are self-explanatory, but one button that can be a big time saver is the Tonality batch processing option. It is on the top left side of the Tonality window and the button icon shows 3 photo layers as shown in the screenshot above. The Screenshot on the left shows four photos that were selected for batch processing.

After selecting the photos that you would like batch processed in Tonality and clicking on the “Process” button, the “Batch Options” screen as shown on the left will appear. Here you will select the “Save To” location, which Tonality presets to use, the image format and quality, image size, file naming, and then the Batching Presets to use. You can also save your Batching Presets to use again in the future. After selecting the options, then you will click on the green “Process” button.

The next screen you will see in the Batch Processing process, is the Batch Processing progress/status screen, like shown on the left. You will see each photo getting processed, how many images have been processed and the new file path of the processed files.

And finally the last screen you will see in the Batch Processing process, is the Batch Processing completed screen, like shown on the left. 99% of the time you will get the message “Batch completed successfully”, and then you just click on “OK” to leave the batch processing option. Hopefully you will remember where you saved the newly processed files and can go there to check them out or upload them to your website or Facebook.

Order Or Download Free Trial Of Macphun Tonality

I would highly recommend getting your own copy of Macphun Tonality. It is a great piece of software for creating inspiring black and white photography. It is currently only available for MAC computers and laptops unfortunately. I wish Macphun would make all their software compatible with both Windows and Mac computers, like I heard they will be doing with their Aurora HDR photography software. If you would like to see more info on Aurora HDR, we have a blog post with videos and other info about it here, Macphun Professional Aurora HDR photography software page.

You can order a separate copy of only Macphun Tonality, but I would recommend getting their Creative Kit which includes 6 powerful photography apps, for a very attractive price. The Creative Kit includes the following apps: Tonality CK, Intensify CK, Focus CK, Snapheal CK, Noiseless CK, and FX Photo Studio CK. These 6 photography apps have over 500 creative tools to help bring your photography and creativity to another level.
