PRESS RELEASE: PictoColor Releases iCorrect EditLab ProApp 6.0 Color Correction Software for Large Volume Workflows
New version offers serious photographers a simplified, high speed approach to color adjustment
Burnsville, MN -- March 27 -- PictoColor today announced the release of iCorrect EditLab ProApp 6.0 color correction software. iCorrect EditLab ProApp offers serious photographers a simplified approach to color correction and color editing for large volume workflows. When asked, most professional photographers and photo enthusiasts say that one of the most time consuming parts of their digital workflow is getting the color right. With its highly-acclaimed technology, smartly arranged tools and workflow enhancing features, iCorrect EditLab ProApp will save hours and minimize the frustration of making color adjustments so photographers can spend less time in front of the computer and more time behind the camera.
Time-Saving Workflows with ProcessQ
At the heart of iCorrect EditLab ProApp is the new ProcessQ, a completely redesigned image queue that allows photographers to easily view, sort and manage their color corrections for more efficient, time-saving workflows. After images are added to ProcessQ, the entire collection is displayed as thumbnails at the bottom of the main panel. With ProcessQ, users can step through and correct and save any number of images -- either one at a time or as an entire group. Adjustments can even be synchronized across multiple images almost instantly for rapid fire batch processing.
Frustration-Free Color Correction with Professional Results
For photographers looking for an easier way to make the color right, iCorrect EditLab Pro offers an intuitive, straight-forward tool set. iCorrect EditLab ProApp consists of four separate tools logically arranged from left to right providing a wizard-like approach to accurate color. The tools are designed in such a way that as photographers progress from left to right, adjustments made with one tool will not and in fact, cannot be affected by any of the tools to its right. This alleviates the common frustration of correcting for one thing while throwing off another. With iCorrect EditLab ProApp, one pass through the tools and that's it. Plus, each tool has an optional SmartColor feature which analyzes the image and adjusts the settings to their initial recommended settings.
Perfect Companion Program for Raw Workflows
For digital photo purists who want to take full advantage of all the benefits of Raw capture, iCorrect EditLab ProApp is the perfect complement to any Raw conversion software. It simplifies enhanced color adjustments with intuitive, easy-to-use tools that eliminate the frustration of fine-tuning images for final presentation. After converting Raw image files with a favorite converter, photographers can add that extra punch more quickly and easily with iCorrect EditLab ProApp's unique wizard-like tool set.
Advanced Black-and-White Conversions and Sepia Tones
For photographers looking to add creative artistic effects, iCorrect EditLab ProApp's advanced technology makes black-and-white conversions and sepia tones easier than ever before. iCorrect EditLab ProApp's unique approach allows users to control how the colors map to gray scale as well as selectively retain certain colors of the original image for stunning results.
