Tonality – for BW conversion – by Macphun can be bought as a standalone app or as part of ‘Creative Kit’ which is only for Mac users (sorry Windows users). The interface is simple and uncluttered and should appeal to casual users and more experienced photo-editors as an altermative to Nik and/or Adobe software and is fully compatable with PhotoShop and Lightroom with a straight forward plug-in install. For me a lot of the supplied presets are – not unlike the Nik Collection – a little heavy handed, but with detailed controls and the ability to use masks and layers it can be finessed, and may be a useful addition to your workflow or can be simply used to add instant impact to images.
I’ll add a more detailed review soon.

The tools palette with loads of the expected features can be set-up to work in ‘Solo Mode’ – similar to Lightroom.
Images can be easily opened and shared throughout the ‘Creative Kit’ and other applications.
