Color Efex Pro for Photoshop
Part of the reason why the photographs taken by experts look so good is because they have a wide range of applied filters, which means that even novices could obtain great-looking pics with the right tools. For example, they could try the filters included within Color Efex Pro for Photoshop.
The interface of Color Efex Pro for Photoshop is intuitive and user-friendly, displaying the image to be modified in the center, whereas the left and right panels are populated with various types of settings.
The application features several presets that can come in handy to those who are only now getting used to photography filters and want to experiment with the settings first. When they get the hang of it, they can simply hide the templates section and start enhancing images on their own.
Depending on the effect they want to create, users can adjust a wide range of settings, such as the soft focus type, the diffusion strength, the luminosity, the color range, the shadows and highlights, as well as the brilliance or warmth.
Users can preview all the changes they configure in real-time, so they can modify their settings as they see fit. However, it needs to be mentioned that saving the current image will overwrite the original file, so a backup of the source image is required.
All in all, Color Efex Pro for Photoshop can be used by experts and novices alike, since the former can improve the look of their shots and make them photographic masterpieces, while the latter can try their hand at image enhancing using an intuitive app.
Nonetheless, a license should be purchased by all those who want to enjoy the app’s features past the evaluation period.
