PRESS RELEASE: Pictographics, Fong Release BullZeye Color Corrector
BullZeye High-Speed Color Corrector introduced by world-renowned photographer Gary Fong based on Pictographics' CandelaColor EditLab Technology
December 2, 2003, Burnsville, MN, USA, Pictographics International Corporation has partnered with world-renowned photographer Gary Fong to create BullZeye High-Speed Color Corrector. BullZeye is a stand-alone color correction program that inspects, selects, and corrects digital pictures in a single step. With just one simple utility, professional photographers can produce lab-accurate color images with remarkable precision. BullZeye is available for both Windows and Macintosh computers, including OS X, and includes Gary Fong's BullZeye Tutorial. BullZeye is available at Gary Fong's web site at www.garyfong.com.
Developed in collaboration with Gary Fong, BullZeye High Speed Color Corrector eliminates many tedious repetitive tasks usually found while working in Photoshop with a plug-in. With BullZeye, there is no need for Photoshop or complex calibration devices, since it performs color correction by sampling multiple areas of neutral color saturation found in the gray, white or black areas of a color image. Once it corrects the offending colorcast in the neutral areas, the rest of the image looks perfect. And, because the monitor and subjective color opinion never enters this workflow, the user will have accurate images without expensive monitor calibration devices.
"As the founder of one of the nation's largest digital photo lab operations (Pictage, Inc), as well as a busy professional photographer, I needed something that could get past the subjectivity of color balance and accurately nail down color with complete precision. Pictographics technology is the best available anywhere... their approach is brilliant", says Gary Fong. He goes on to say, "As we're now processing thousands of images per week, it was a welcome collaboration to develop BullZeye. BullZeye is an application that inspects, selects and corrects all in one viewing step, and keeps the original images safe. Whether you are a beginner or serious imaging professional, BullZeye saves you an immense amount of time and ensures optimum image quality."
BullZeye is a customized version of Pictographics' award winning iCorrect EditLab color correction and editing software and is designed specifically for the high speed color correction requirements of professional photographers. Wayne Huelskoetter, Pictographics President, said, "Gary Fong is among the first to participate in Pictographics new Technology Licensing, OEM, and Private Label Program whereby companies can quickly and easily provide their customers with very sophisticated color correction tools in a simple and easy to use form to Make the Color Right. The combination of Gary Fong's experience and knowledge of the needs of the professional photographer and Pictographics' technology has resulted in a truly remarkable color correction software product."
