How to process a batch of images with a common set of filters and effects.

When photographers, editors and designers apply a set of filters and effects to a collection of images, they need software that creates a consistent set of output images. Here's how Monochrome can help you get the best "batching" results.

  1. Create a new Monochrome project.

    Monochrome projects contain a collection of images and the settings that control how the collection is processed. To create a project, click the Create New Project button on the Welcome Screen or select File > New from the menubar.


  2. Add Images.

    To add individual images or a folder of images, click the Import button on the toolbar or select File > Add Images... from the menubar. You may also drag images and folders from Finder on to the Tray.


  3. Select a Preview Mode and set the conversion mode.

    Monochrome provides 6 modes for displaying the source and final images.

    Images are converted to grayscale before processing begins. Select a conversion style from the panel on the right of the window.


  4. Add image effects.

    Add one or more image effects to your processing workflow. More than 50 effects are available to choose from.


  5. Export, Share or start a Slide Show.

    Once you have adjusted each image to your satisfaction, you can save the processed images to disk by clicking the Export button on the toolbar or select File > Export Images... from the menubar. .

    To share the processed images with internet services like Facebook and Twitter, click the Share button on the toolbar or select File > Share Images... from the menubar. .

    To start a slide show using the processed images, click the Slide Show button on the toolbar.


  6. Save your project.

    Monochrome projects are stored in a .monochrome file. To save a project, select the File > Save option from the menubar.
