Use Noir to replace the color in your photo with a rich, cinematic black-and-white. A touchable, customizable Vignette lets you re-light the photo to show what's important and shade out the rest. Apply a sepia, silver, blue-gray or chartreuse tint to further set the mood; choose from six presets to get started quickly.

Noir is designed for play

Noir's preview area is huge and the controls are minimal so you play fast and never have to open a second panel. It's finger candy for the artist in you.
