Currently TiltShift is only available for purchase through the Mac App Store. Please contact us if that absolutely does not work for you.
You can however download a fully functional demo version (that overlays a watermark) from this site to try out TiltShift before purchasing.
Both TiltShift and TiltShift Lite are fully compatible with OS X Mavericks. There are no known bugs. Please report if you find problems so they can be fixed in an upcoming version.
As explained in a separate FAQ entry, the Aperture Plug-in has been discontinued a few years ago. It has not been available for download or purchase in a very long time.
Several users have reported that it no longer works in the current version of Aperture on OS X Mavericks. The Plug-in will not receive any further updates. Please use the standalone version instead.
Both TiltShift and TiltShift Lite offer the same basic controls to influence the look of your photo. However, the Lite version is limited in a number of ways:
The original author of the TiltShift Aperture Plug-In, the standalone apps TiltShift and TiltShift Lite had to give up the products. By that time Apple did not enable us to transfer the existing products into a different account.
Version 1.2 and later are technically new products as far as the Mac App Store is concerned. There’s no way for us to inform you about that new version or give you a free upgrade, as there is no mechanism on the Mac App Store to contact customers.
However, our goal is to make you a happy user, so if you feel that paying for the product again is unfair, please contact us. You might want to take into consideration that you already used the product for quite some time and purchasing it again may not be that expensive and also not the worst way to spend money. Developing software costs a lot of effort. We will strive to maintain and improve the apps in the future.
The Aperture Plug-in has been discontinued a long time ago by its original author due to a number of technical difficulties. It is no longer available for download or purchase. Users report that it no longer works on the current versions of Aperture and OS X Mavericks.
If you liked the functionality, download and try out the demo version of the standalone app, it might very well work for you.
