What others think about piQtility:

"A comprehensive photo managing tool to get your pictures organized just the way you want them. The app gives you a full set of editing and filtering tools, and makes quick work of manipulating large batches of files using a streamlined workflow... exporting your final work to Photos apps-or even creating your very own web gallery—is as simple as clicking your mouse."


"A smooth-running and easy-to-use Mac OS X application that provides all the tools and features you might need to manage and organize your photo library."


"One of the apps everybody needs some time: convert pics into different formats, add a filter or a watermark etc. Works great for me with Sierra. And the devs are always responsive. "
