Color Corrections

Color Restoration

Perfectly Clear automatically checks and determines whether or not the capture device has captured the full vibrancy of the colors in the picture. If it hasn’t, then the algorithm will automatically restore the washed out/faded colors in the photograph while always maintaining the true colors represented in the original photo. If the camera has properly captured true color, then this function will have no effect on the image. Version 3.5 updated this correction for a more gentle correction when Color Restore in at 1, and sets Color Restore totally off when at zero.  


Color Vibrancy

This correction is a more traditional “Vibrancy” correction        which will add saturation to colors that are low in saturation, without over-saturating colors that were already vibrant.  These effect generally works best at lower values.

08 Color Vibrancy


Since True Color is fundamental to preserving precious memories perfectly, we provide you with Digital Color Fidelity (“DCF”): a patent-pending process which maps untrue colors created in the camera’s imaging pipe back into the true colors seen with the human eye at the time the photograph was taken. There are two settings that you can adjust: “Standard”, and “Vivid”. Standard will re-map to the full color spectrum of the colors that the camera failed to capture. Vivid will do the same, but will accentuate the colors. The result is a photo with more contrast, more vivid colors, and more “punch” to it.


Tint Correction

Abnormal tint occurs in situations where the sensors of the camera have inappropriately picked up and reflected in the image excess green from fluorescent lights, or excess red from the infrared heat of a person in the image, or excess blue from ultraviolet, or excess yellow from tungsten lights.

Sky and Foliage Enhance

These corrections will target color ranges that are traditionally associated with skies and foliage.  These corrections are not masked, so may affect a broader area than desired.  These are ideal for making targeted color corrections that focus on certain colors to produce an image with deeper and richer colors.  These work best at lower values.

In v3.1, there are now two controls for the Foliage corrections: one for browns and one for greens.  Both have their own Strength control, and several different effects to choose from.

These corrections are not affected by the 'Strength' slider.
