Revolutionary! Fixel products allow sharpening and contrasting with surgical precision. The only thing better than the suite of products is the customer service, which is quick, friendly and thorough. Just plain awesome!

The Fixel team is just great! Not only did they code me my very own Frakenbeta version of Contrastica, they held my hand and walked me through how to get it working on my computer. I HIGHLY recommend their offerings!
