PictoColor Announces the Release of CorrectPhoto 2.0 Digital Photo Editor Featuring OneClick Color Correction



Enhanced software simplifies common digital photo fixes and takes the guesswork out of making the color right

Burnsville, MN, January 10, 2007 - - PictoColor announces the release of CorrectPhoto 2.0 featuring OneClick Color. CorrectPhoto for Windows is the first digital photo editor to utilize the new one-click color correction technology that takes the guesswork out of making the color right. PictoColor’s newest point-and-click software automatically fixes the white balance, corrects the exposure, and improves the vibrancy of any digital image with a single click. Until now, this capability has only been available to advanced users and professional photographers through PictoColor’s iCorrect line of Photoshop plug-ins. Plus, CorrectPhoto also has an integrated Windows Explorer, so users have direct access to all the digital media features of the operating system at the click of a mouse. With CorrectPhoto and Windows, users can easily transfer, perfect, organize, manage, view, share, and print their digital photos.

In addition to its automatic color correction capabilities, CorrectPhoto provides separate controls for manually adjusting brightness and contrast, independently adjusting shadows and highlights, quickly adjusting the saturation, and easily converting to black and white. It also includes a comprehensive tool set for further improving everyday photos including rotation, cropping to specific print sizes like popular 3x5’s or 4x6’s, image resizing, red-eye reduction, and sharpening.

“CorrectPhoto is an extremely easy-to-use program that really simplifies working with digital photos. With its smartly-organized tool set, advanced color technology, and integrated Windows media tools, CorrectPhoto enables users to take control of their digital photos and turn ordinary snapshots into stunning, vibrant images,” said Craig Huelskoetter, president. “Our new OneClick Color technology is by far our fastest, easiest, and most automatic color correction tool to date. Now, photo enthusiasts and home users can get the same professional results with an easy-to-use stand-alone program. Plus, with its integrated Windows Explorer, it’s like having our advanced OneClick Color technology built right into the operating system. Whether users plan to share their web galleries with family and friends, order prints from an online photo service, create stunning scrapbooks, or just save them in their personal archives, CorrectPhoto will save them hours and help them take their digital photos further.”
