About the Software

Colour Studio 2.0 : A collection of 5 plug-in filters for use with Adobe Photoshop or compatible host applications (32-bit hosts only. Please note these filters will NOT run under 64-bit versions of CS5 or CS6). The filters produce a range of colour modification effects that allow you to enhance, correct or give your images a vibrant new look.

Each plug-in is available to purchase separately or you can buy the full set for even better value! A useful collection of colour effects. Click on the thumbnails to view full-size screenshots of each filter dialog.

HotShot plug-in dialog screenshot
Hotshot will help you quickly access a selection of image enhancement controls through one easy-to-use dialog, providing a whole range of features from subtle colour correction to more dynamic effects for added impact or artistic results. Convert your pictures to B&W or toned monochrome, add grain, desaturate individual channels to limit or boost certain colour ranges, invert the red, green or blue values and flood with intense colour casts for dramatic effect. A useful all-purpose colour tool.

RetroGrade plug-in dialog screenshot
RetroGrade will help you to recreate classic effects as if you were shooting with traditional black & white film. The RGB Optical Filter sliders affect the colour response during greyscale conversion, similar to using coloured lens filters with B&W film. Add the monochromatic film grain and you are able to create photos that have the look and feel of traditional media. This product is particularly effective on landscape images and a popular choice among photographers who have made the switch to digital media but want to retain the old look of film.

Fluoron plug-in dialog screenshot
Fluoron is based on a kind of ultra-violet or fluorescent style colour shift but also offers many other variations for interesting results. A selection of colour swap options are included which can be used alone or in combination with the other sliders. The filter is not meant to reproduce any real-world colour wavelengths, it is only intended for artistic effect and fun or experimental conversions. It offers a quick method for creating vibrant and dynamic images when you need a bit more impact.

Alienator plug-in dialog screenshot
Alienator takes an alternative approach to colour modification effects by generating random combinations of many hidden variables to produce unusual and unpredictable results. You can generate the settings using the semi or complete manual random buttons, or let the plug-in automatically animate through thousands of variations. When you come close to an effect you like, tweak the settings further with the sliders provided.

Vivida plug-in dialog screenshot
Vivida provides a quick and easy way to boost the brightness, contrast and saturation values in each individual channel of your image. Ideal for when you need to add impact to any photos that are underexposed or have dull lifeless colours.
