PhotoTune 2.2 Incorporates ColorTune, SkinTune Technologies

PhotoTune 2 by onOne Software

The color correction plug-ins 20/20 Color MD 2.0 and SkinTune 2.0 are now in the onOne Software camp. PhotoTune Software, who developed the Photoshop plug-ins has been acquired by onOne.

20/20 Color MD 2.0 will be renamed ColorTune now that it is owned by onOne Software. ColorTune, combined with the SkinTune technology, has become PhotoTune 2.2 whose primary job is still to render accurate colors and skin tones.

onOne says ColorTune works like an eye exam to figure out precisely what is wrong with a digital image and how to fix it. During each step of the Color Wizard process, users are presented two side-by-side preview images that have been altered in different ways. Users simply click on the best looking image between each pair.

The entire six-step process only takes about 15 seconds. In comparison, if a user spends an average of 10 minutes fixing an image with Photoshop’s Curves, Levels, and Hue & Saturation it’ll take them 16 hours to color correct 100 images. With PhotoTune 2.2 and ColorTune technology, 100 images can be processed in less than one hour.

PhotoTune 2.2 with SkinTune technology provides maximum control over the skin color spectrum and the software’s tools are twice as precise as Photoshop so users can make very subtle adjustments and achieve life-like results, according to onOne.
