PRESS RELEASE: PictoColor Releases iCorrect EditLab Pro 5.0 Color Correction and Color Editing Software for Photoshop Users
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.
January 17, 2006 - Burnsville, MN, USA, PictoColor Corporation has released iCorrect EditLab Pro 5.0 ( http://www.pictocolor.com/editlabpro.htm ), a new version of its highly acclaimed color correction and color editing software. The new version features advanced automatic black and white conversion and automatic sepia tone for sophisticated artistic effects. In addition, iCorrect EditLab Pro 5.0 now 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 continue to rediscover the timeless beauty of black and white photography, iCorrect EditLab Pro 5.0 will help them turn everyday shots into stunning fine art images.
Black and White Conversion and Toning
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 on a hue-selective basis for amazing effects. Coupled with its advanced toning controls, iCorrect EditLab Pro 5.0 gives the photographer an enormous amount of creative flexibility.
Sharpening and Noise Removal
For the first time, 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. Since applying a color correction typically makes any noise even more noticeable, performing both functions simultaneously offers a great advantage. Combining sharpening and noise removal with color correction further enhances digital workflow productivity by eliminating the need for additional steps or other tools.
iCorrect EditLab Pro's SmartColor approach to color correction involves the following features:
iCorrect EditLab Pro 5.0 has become an indispensable color correction tool for many digital photographers and photo labs. It offers a revolutionary, yet simple and straightforward way of optimizing the color of any digital picture and then applying the correction parameters to a batch of pictures taken under similar conditions. The Photoshop plug-in version is action enabled and the stand alone version features ProcessQ for automatically applying customized correction parameters to a group of pictures. 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.
