Great way to quickly create multiple variations of graphics!  Fast and easy to use.  Lots of options, I feel like I'm just scratching the surface of what it can do.  Exports as separate .pngs so the output is ready to use in your games without cutting out the graphics manually.  Lots of options including greyscale/desaturated or super saturated, X and Y mirroring and a bunch of other stuff I haven't played with yet.  I'm loving it so far!
