Grungetastic is a software application that comes packed with a wide range of built-in special effects for helping you transform your photo appearance. The tool is able to retouch your images by adding a grunge flavour in order to simulate a clearer vision of the reality.

The intuitive interface represents a big plus for this rich-featured graphic editor, as other similar tools sport a crowded layout.

Even if you don’t possess special skills in the photography area, you can apply the adjustments with just a few clicks. Plus, the advanced previewing mode enables you to view the changes applied to your picture in real time.

Grungetastic gives you the possibility to upload pictures into the working environment using the built-in browse function or “drag and drop” operations. It works with the following file formats: JPG, PNG, and TIFF.

What’s more, the special effects are organized into several categories, so you can easily identify them, such as Pop Grunge, Bleached, Grunge, Distresses, Gritty, Worn, and Worn Pop.

There are several manual adjustments that you can use for altering the color, color threshold, number of colors, color detail and strength, edge strength, as well as paper tint and strength. All of the aforementioned changes can be pretty easily tweaked, thanks to its built-in sliders, and you can also save the edited preset with a custom name.

One of the best features bundled in this tool enables you to automatically randomize the built-in styles. Last but not least, you can undo or redo your actions, crop the photos, zoom in or out for examining small details, as well as compare the edited picture with the original one.

During our testing we have noticed that Grungetastic carries out a task quickly and without errors. It is quite friendly with system resources, so it doesn’t hamper your computer performance.

All in all, Grungetastic offers excellent output results and provides a handy suite of tools for helping you acquire the desired effect. Thanks to its intuitive layout, it is suitable for rookies and professionals alike.
