New Adjustments

The new version adds two long-awaited adjustments, absolutely necessary for photo correction and requested by professionals: Selective Color and Color Lookup (3D LUT). They are also available as adjustment layers. Both include a number of presets for fast processing.

The Selective Color adjustment allows you to change the selected color in an image without affecting other colors. It's a simple way to correct color balance and enhance colors on an individual channel basis.

The Color Lookup (3D LUT) adjustment allows you to change colors and tone of your image using a lookup table (LUT) file. This feature helps you to quickly make a particular look for your image and totally change its mood.

It's easy to use this new feature. Just choose one of the presets in the 3D LUT list or load your file in a .3dl or .cube format. The program maps the colors in a photo with those in the preset to create a new look.

New Stencil Effect

The new Stencil effect converts a photo into an impressive drawing with contrasting outlines.

Stenciling is a technique of creating a monochrome print. Using this effect in AliveColors, you can not only make an authentic monochrome print, but also create a multi-color drawing. A unique algorithm allows you to create high-contrast eye-catching images.

Find a new group of tools in the Toolbar, under the standard brushes. It includes 3 tools: Spot Remover, Red Eye Remover, and Teeth Whitening. Give your images a polished look!
