Using Visual Presets and LOOKS

Looking for a new way to work with presets?  Perfectly Clear version 3.5 offers a new way to see what your presets will look like without even having to apply them. You can now see both LOOKS and presets as useful thumbnail icons.  You’ll see the results each gives right in the browser. 

Here’s how they work:

Visual LOOKs

Perfectly Clear’s LOOK’s technology is powered by lookup tables.  A lookup table remaps the color an image based on a color profile.  They’re great for film looks, black and white conversions, and creative color grading.
