After EditLab's Magic


Featured Product-iCorrect® EditLab Pro Plug-in
The Photoshop® Color Correction Standard for 6 Years!


Frustration-Free Color Correction with Professional Results
iCorrect EditLab Pro Plug-in was first introduced in 2002 at version 2.0 by our parent company, Pictographics International. It was based on Pictographics proprietary ICC Color Management  technology that employs complex 3 dimensional non-linear algorithms to Make the Color Right. That's probably more that you wanted to know, but it is what makes PictoColor's color correction technology unique in the industry. When you correct color using an iCorrect product you are, in essence, "fixing the profile" of the picture to make it right. Even though the technology "under the hood" is complex using it is not. "Great Color Made Simple" was the title of one of the first EditLab reviews by Chris Daniels in the November 2002 issue of Shutterbug Magazine.

Version 2.0 was followed by 3.0, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0 and 5.5, the current version. With each new version we added new and enhanced technology and workflow tools, but our primary objective remained the same: Make Professional Color Correction Easy and Fast.

"iCorrect EditLab Pro Makes Color Correction a Breeze!" is how Lisa Snider King titles her review in Macworld.

"With Adobe Photoshop’s proven ability to perform feats of color magic, you might think a color-correction plug-in would be overkill. Not so. Even for color experts, the process of correcting color can be time-consuming and frustrating because of the many problems and methods of correction, and because fixing one detail can throw off another.

PictoColor’s iCorrect EditLab Pro Photoshop Plug-in is geared toward digital photographers and anyone else who appreciates optimal color. It makes correcting RGB images a breeze, and its interface offers as much or as little assistance as you need.

Jim Hoerricks, a Forensic Photographer who just published a new digital photography workflow, says, "iCorrect EditLab Pro 5.5 has quickly become one of my favorite tools." Jim uses has written a review on iCorrect EditLab Pro Plug-in which you can read by going to iCorrect EditLab Pro -- "Works like four tools in one.", By Jim Hoerricks, Editor, Forensic Photoshop: http://www.pictocolor.com/forensic_photoshop.htm. For information on his book, Forensic Photoshop, go to http://www.forensicphotoshopbook.com/

Four Tools in One

iCorrect EditLab Pro consists of four separate tool panels identified by four distinctly numbered tabs.  The four panels are logically arranged from left to right and offer a wizard-like approach to accurate color.  The tools are designed in such a way that as you progress from left to right, the tools will not, and in fact cannot affect any of the tools to its left.  This alleviates the common frustration of correcting for one thing while throwing off another.  With iCorrect EditLab Pro, one pass through the tools and you are finished.  Plus, each tool has an optional SmartColor button which analyzes the image and sets the correction parameters to initial recommended settings.  More
