New digital photo software features advanced auto black and white conversion, auto sepia tone, sharpening, and noise removal for turning everyday pictures into fine art images
Press Release: BURNSVILLE, Minn., Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ — PictoColor Corporation has released iCorrect EditLab Pro 5.0, a new version of its highly acclaimed color correction and color editing Photoshop plug-in. The new version features automatic black and white conversion and automatic sepia tone. It also includes sharpening and noise removal technology for enhanced image quality and productivity.
Version 5.0 builds on iCorrect EditLab Pro’s tradition of fast and easy color correction and color editing by offering sophisticated, yet easy to use black and white conversion and toning tools for adding an additional level of expression to an image. As photographers rediscover the timeless beauty of black and white photography, iCorrect EditLab Pro 5.0 will help them turn everyday shots into stunning fine art prints.
One of iCorrect EditLab Pro 5.0′s advantages over other programs is its ability to preserve rather than discard the valuable color information during the conversion process. This makes it possible to easily “bring back” certain colors for unique special effects. Coupled with its advanced toning controls, iCorrect EditLab Pro 5.0 gives the photographer an enormous amount of creative flexibility.
iCorrect EditLab Pro 5.0 includes two image processing tools that go beyond color — sharpening and noise removal. iCorrect EditLab Pro can now apply sharpening and channel-independent noise removal in combination with color correction. Combining sharpening and noise removal with color correction further enhances digital workflow productivity by eliminating the need for additional steps.
iCorrect EditLab Pro’s SmartColor approach to color correction involves the following features:
— Neutral balance to remove unwanted color cast
— Tonal range adjustment for automatically setting black point, white
point and gray point
— Brightness, contrast and saturation adjustment to automatically correct
— Independent shadow and highlight adjustments
— iCorrect Memory Colors – memory colors automatically correct predefined
— Corrected image is profiled into color managed workflow
— Automatic Black and White conversion
— Automatic Sepia Tone conversion with advanced toning controls
The goal of iCorrect EditLab Pro 5.0 is to provide professional photographers and photo labs with a workflow tool that will save time and money in the production of accurate color pictures.
