Photolamus is a program designed for Mac users who wish to place orders for custom caricatures from the comfort of their homes. All you need to do in order to work with this application is to provide a picture from your local drives and submit your order.
This utility comes with a straightforward interface where you can preview works of Photolamus graphic designers and place orders. However, you need to create a personal account on the main screen of the app in order to submit any artwork requests (you don't need to validate the account, you can order as soon as you create the account).
Photolamus gives you access to information regarding the type of photo you need to upload for your order (passport-like picture) and lets you choose between three drawing techniques (black and white, bright and expressive, and digital). What's more, you can select the amount of time you wish for the caricature to be delivered (84 or 12 hours).
Another good aspect is that the prices for the created artwork are very affordable and they are calculated based on the options you select (number of persons, quality, and delivery time).
My only concern regarding this tool is that it occasionally crashes when you click the Browse button to upload photos.
As for the rest, I'd say it's worth installing Photolamus on your Mac if you wish to make an original gift for your family and friends by ordering quality caricatures.
