Nik Software is bringing the U Point image adjustment technology to Photoshop.
Viveza by Nik Software will be available in March 2008 as a plug-in for Photoshop CS3 and Photoshop Elements, bringing with it the point and drag simplicity of U Pointâ€™s technology.
Nik Software says Viveza provides easy-to-use methods for correcting and enhancing images without the need to create complicated selections or layer masks or have expert-level knowledge of Adobe Photoshop.
To make adjustments to an image, users simply place U Point powered Color Control Points directly on colors or objects in an image (such as sky, skin, grass, etc.) then adjust easy-to-use sliders for brightness, contrast, color, etc. Viveza automatically selects objects and creates masks based on where the user places a Color Control Point.
Viveza will be available for $250.
