PictoColor has announced the latest version of its colour correction Photoshop plug-in, iCorrect EditLab Pro 5.0. Designed to enable digital photographers to edit their photographs quickly, features new to version 5.0 include automatic black & white conversion and automatic sepia toning, for creating artistic effects. In contrast to programs that discard colour information, EditLab Pro 5.0ís black & white conversion and toning feature retains it. This enables the user to make more precise adjustments based on the hues of the image, offering more creative control. Colour corrections can often enhance image noise, so the program includes a new sharpening and noise removal feature, which can be applied at the same time as colour corrections, speeding up the workflow. Other colour correction features include: custom neutral balance controls for defining neutral colours; black, white and grey points for altering the tonal range; adjustable highlight and shadows; and contrast, saturation and brightness tool for correcting exposure. Memory Colours are pre-set colour shades for skin, foliage and sky, while IIC input profiles can be created, edited and applied. Compatible with Windows and Macintosh computers, it can be used with Photoshop 7, CS and CS2, and Elements 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0. Downloadable from www.pictomarketplace.com for £56 ($99.95), existing users can upgrade for £40 ($69.95).
