Unified Color updates HDR PhotoStudio image editing software

Modeled after human vision, HDR PhotoStudio is the only imaging software featuring accurate color, full color gamut and HDR editing capability, the company claims This update further improves the product features and incorporates new operations of color tone equalizer, color tuning and white balance. The new HDR merge works directly with TIFF and JPEG without requiring the camera settings profile. Among many performance and stability improvements, users will experience a dramatic performance gain when reducing halo artifacts in their images.

The new color tone equalizer feature allows users to quickly and independently adjust up to six basic color tones (red, yellow, green, cyan, blue, and magenta). A color tuning operation provides control of chromatic (color) components for fine tuning of specific colors in the image while keeping other colors intact. Color tuning is typically performed after the White Balance and is useful for obtaining a better visual match for chosen color tones.

The White Balance feature lets users fine tune image’s colors not only using conventional white tone, but also by selecting non-white (color) tone and adjusting its position in the gamut control.

"We have been listening to our users, who wanted to merge HDR images in formats other than RAW and with this release they can," says Igor Tryndin, CTO of Unified Color. HDR PhotoStudio was launched three months ago.
