1 - Introduction
1.1 - What Is This?
This is the user's manual for iToolBox, a free, privacy-respecting application targeted to OS X (MacOS) 10.11 or later which provides tools for adjustment and enhancement of image files.
Image types that can be loaded include RAW deep-color files produced by DSLRs as well as standard filetypes like PNG and JPG produced by other image editing software.
1.2 - Where Can I Get It?
Click here for the OS X (MacOS) iToolBox download. Note that I hope to produce a Windows port at some point.
If you have any issues opening iToolBox
for the first time, please refer to the In Case of Problems

1.3 - How Does This Application Help You?
Adjustment and enhancement of images loaded from many image filetypes such as:
- Standard images such as PNG and JPG
DSLR RAW images including those from Canon and Nikon cameras
Image preparation for use in online image galleries
(Hover your mouse over the image of me playing guitar, below)
Unique capabilities, such as warp layers
Image handling of new types of information using the ATO and ELX formats
A faster way to perform most image adjustments and enhancements
Then there's the fact that it's free. And...
There is no AdSpam in the application. And...
There's no invasion of your privacy. And...
There are no "cloud" dependencies.
There is a more extensive feature list
on the next page.
1.4 - System Requirements
- You'll want at least a couple gigabytes of free memory to edit images.
Every image you load takes more RAM. Lots of it.
- iToolBox takes about 25 megabytes
Your images will demand more. Lots more.
- 3 GHz is suggested; lower speed CPUs will simply produce results more slowly.
But no one likes that.
- One is okay.
Two is good.
More is great
- A mouse with two mechanical buttons is highly recommended
Apple's Magic Mouse is not recommended, as it has problems with its mouse button emulation.
iToolBox asks you for permission to contact fyngyrz.com to get a serial number. It's not required.
The documentation is kept online
(and since iToolBox has context sensitive help, you might like that)
Updates to the software are made available online
(and iToolBox can let you know about available updates in the About dialog)
Other than taking advantage of these things, no, you don't need a LAN or WAN connection.
