Great color, it's not as hard as you think. If you can compare images side-by-side and pick the best one, then you can easily color correct and enhance your images with PhotoTune 3. Additionally, PhotoTune 3 improves the color and sharpness of your image without the need to know how to use levels or curves in Photoshop.
Perfect Skin Color. Every Time.
If you photograph people, you can also tune your images by clicking on skin tones to guarantee accurate skin color. Pro users get access to all the controls for tone, color and sharpening. Better images are just a few clicks away with PhotoTune 3.
What's New in PhotoTune?
NEW! Pro Controls
PhotoTune 3 also adds a new professional interface for users who desire complete control. You have access to the tone, color, SkinTune and detail controls. PhotoTune takes away the complex concepts like levels and curves and and provides simple ways to make advanced adjustments like sharpening, portrait color correction and gray purity. With the simple, innovative controls you just slide your image in the preview space to make adjustments that look good to your eye. No need to understand complex histograms and curves.
NEW! Black & White Conversions
You can create great looking black and white images from your color photos with PhotoTune as well. Simply flip the black and white switch and you are working just like Ansel Adams. Use the color controls to change the tone, just like using filters over your camera lens.
NEW! Skin Color Correction
The SkinTune controls, which automatically color-correct portraits in a single click, have been improved to give the option to only correct the subjects skin, rather than the entire image. This makes it more useful when working with models where the rest of the scene is color correct, but the subject's skin may need a correction.
NEW! Automatic Correction
PhotoTune 3 now features a state-of-art automatic correction algorithm called eye-fidelity originally developed by imsense. In a single click, this amazing new eye-fidelity technology will correct the brightness, contrast, color and dynamic range of any photo. This goes way beyond a simple auto-levels or shadow-highlight adjustment. It actually remaps tones to increase the dynamic range and make it appear more true-to-life, the way your eye saw the scene when you first captured the digital photo.
NEW! Works as a Smart Filter
PhotoTune 3 can now be used as a Smart Filter in Photoshop CS3, CS4 and CS5 allowing you to make non-destructive, re-editable adjustments on Smart Objects like Raw files. When used in conjunction with the new Lightroom integration this creates a seamless, non-destructive workflow experience for your raw images.
NEW! Works as a Standalone Application
Like other onOne products, PhotoTune 3 now supports integration with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Apple Aperture. This allows users to access PhotoTune 3 and its presets directly inside the workflow applications they use everyday.
At the heart of PhotoTune is the patented step-by-step wizard that simplifies the correction of your image without the need to understand complicated color and tone controls. This has been enhanced to combine the new auto-correction algorithm, SkinTune color correction and sharpening. This makes the wizard the fastest and easiest way to optimize your images no matter what your experience level.
