that applies precise color corrections, automatic color balancing and creative
coloring effects. With a retail price of $99.95, PhotoKit Color 2.0 offers a comprehensive

PhotoKit Color 2.0 features a preview display, so you can quickly preview the
effects before you apply them and combine effects in a single batch operation.
Included in the new effects are the Dodge and the Burn filter sets, which were
in the original PhotoKit plug-in. The Special Effects series contains many new
filters including color infrared, sunshine filters, color transfer effects and
more. The Film Effects series offers accurate simulation filters of several generic
chrome film emulsions, simulating both color and contrast. Like its predecessor,
PhotoKit Color 2.0 provides a comprehensive suite of effects that let you recreate
creative effects like black and white split toning and cross processing. All these

each effect to suit your own taste. With PhotoKit Color 2.0, you can enhance specific
colors in your photographs. You can make skin tones less red or lighter. With
the Blue Enhance effect you can darken a blue sky and enhance the cloud contrast.
