Nisus Writer Pro Tutorials, Express — James Tummins has created a series of video tutorials for Nisus Writer Pro. These tutorials walk you through subjects such as styles, find and replace, table of contents, track changes, comments, and more. If you are new to Nisus Writer Pro or need a refresher, these videos are a great resource.
Meanwhile Nisus Writer Express is now only US$20? Like Pro, Express is a multilingual powerhouse, with support for just about every language and even right to left scripts. It’s compatible with popular file formats (.doc, .docx) and its native file format (.rtf) is compatible with just about every word processor out there.

Filters for Photos now in the Mac App store (still free) — Dozens of creative filters: vintage, analogue, oil paint, comics and many others. Use it as a standalone app or within Photos as an extension. Apply filters in real time, mix & match filters, adjust the look and even draw with filters. This is a free package – it hasn’t arrived in the NZ Mac App Store yet, but if you prefer to get things through Apple’s mediated Store, it will be there soon.
