Color Efex Pro Complete is a plug-in for image editing applications. The program is compatible with such applications as Photoshop, Lightroom, Aperture and Capture NX 2. It is a full-featured editor that allows you to enhance your digital photos, correct colors, retouch, apply various effects and many others. Color Efex Pro Complete contains up to 52 filters and 250 photo effects. There are some new filters: Bleach Bypass, Cross Balance, Film Effects, Film Grain, Glamour Glow, High Key, Low Key, Polaroid Transfer and Tonal Enhancer. Moreover, you can control not only filter’s intensity, but also brightness, color and grain. Filters can be stretched and rotated that helps you to make the best choice. A new Selective Tool (U Point technology) allows you to apply effects to the marked area of the image. Also this version has an improved control under the bright and dark areas. Now it is easier to put the appropriate effect thanks to the possibility to preview large parts of the image. There is a Preview window splited into 2 parts: Before and After (DigitalFilmTools style interface). Besides, the program has a batch processing function, so any filter can be applied to several images at once.
The program has a 15-days trial version. To download it you should register on the developer’s web site.
