When making color and tonal adjustments, the last thing you want to worry about is unwanted saturation changes in your image’s tonal ranges and highlights – also referred to as color shift. Instances of color shift can include: increased saturation, highlight desaturation, color artifacts, hue variation, or even colors taking on a neon appearance.
photoFXlab™ v1.1 is features an advanced color processing technique- IntelliColor™ – that allows you to apply color and tonal adjustments without comprising the color integrity in your image. When working with your normal curves or saturation adjustment tools, you may find an unpleasing color shift that can can make your colors look too deep and very unnatural. The benefit of IntelliColor™ is that it makes it possible to maintain natural and well-balanced color throughout your image – which makes for happy pictures.
