|PictoColor iCorrect EditLab Pro 6 is the essential 64-bit plug-in or standalone application for the serious photographer providing a simplified approach to color correcting and color editing digital photos so you can spend less time in front of your computer and more time behind your camera.
Frustration-Free Color Correction with Professional Results
iCorrect EditLab ProApp consists of four separate tool panels identified by four distinctly numbered tabs. The four panels are logically arranged from left to right and offer a wizard-like approach to accurate color. The tools are designed in such a way that as you progress from left to right, the tools will not, and in fact cannot affect any of the tools to its left. This alleviates the common frustration of correcting for one thing while throwing off another. With iCorrect EditLab ProApp, one pass through the tools and you are finished. Plus, each tool has an optional SmartColor button which analyzes the image and sets the correction parameters to initial recommended settings.
Perfect Companion Program for RAW Workflows
iCorrect EditLab Pro is a perfect companion plug-in to your RAW workflow software. Simplify enhanced color adjustments with intuitive, easy-to-use tools that eliminate the frustration of fine tuning your images. After converting your RAW files with your favorite converter, bring out that extra snap in your images more easily with iCorrect EditLab Pro's wizard-like approach while taking full advantage of all the benefits of RAW capture.
Multiple Start With Options
iCorrect EditLab Pro can be set to Start With one of four unique modes as it opens images. This can offer tremendous time savings when correcting large groups of images.
•SmartColor. SmartColor will be used to determine unique initial color correction settings based on an analysis of each image.
•Previous Settings. The settings for the color correction tools are recalled from the previous image that was corrected.
•Custom Settings. The custom settings that have been loaded with Load Custom Settings function are used.
•Reset. All color correction tool controls will be set to values that do not change the image.
Flexible SmartColor Settings
In order to give you the benefit of the editing power without the tedium of manually setting all of the controls in each tool, PictoColor implemented an "SmartColor" mode which does much of the work for you. When SmartColor Mode is enabled, the image is analyzed and most of the controls for all tools are intelligently set to values that will be good for that particular image. This leaves you with the much smaller job of making minor adjustments to any of the controls as you see fit. You will find this feature to be very helpful in getting the best color correction in the shortest amount of time. Plus, you can customize SmartColor's behavior by defining which controls it sets. There may be times that you want to selectively turn off parts of SmartColor.
Advanced Black-and-White Conversions and Sepia Tones
Convert color images to black-and-white with precision. iCorrect EditLab Pro's sophisticated hue-selective editing tool allows you to control how the colors map onto a gray shade so you can maintain the appearance of the original image.
Create sophisticated sepia tones with iCorrect EditLab Pro's Toning tool by performing hue-selective edits based on the original hues even though original color has been removed from the image.
Integrated Sharpening and Noise Removal
Noise is commonly introduced into images by digital cameras and scanners during the digitization process. Applying a color correction to remove color distortions typically "stretches" the color space, which tends to make any noise even more noticeable. To avoid this, iCorrect EditLab Pro applies sharpening and noise removal in combination with color correction.
