FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Andreas Sumerauer releases recolorST and recolorLE
Two new Adobe Photoshop compatible plugins open up a new efficient and intuitive way to selectively modify and adjust the color contrast in digital images.
Goslar, Germany – May 24, 2008 – Andreas Sumerauer today announced the availability of his recolorST and recolorLE Photoshop compatible plugins.
FoksMarx recolorST provides a novel approach to editing object colors and color contrast in digital images. It is equally well suitable for image correction as for creative image manipulation. The plugin can be used for so different tasks as color equalization, color enhancement or the removal of color stains and bleaches.
Despite its versatility recolorST is still a very accessible tool. Only a few sliders that deliver predictable results are required to do the work.
recolorST uses statistical methods to rescale the fader sensitivity whenever a new palette is created or loaded. This ensures that the fader scale always reflects the editable color range for any given source material.
recolorST blends or replaces the colors of the edited region with those of a chosen color scale palette. The same or a different palette can be used to determine which parts of the image are being processed.
Palettes can be extracted from a sample region or from the entire image. Additionally a choice of predefined color scales is provided with the plugin.
"Our sophisticated color matching algorithm allows to seamlessly dissolve darker or brighter color spots into the surrounding image." said Andreas Sumerauer. "This makes it possible for example to apply a face retouch without any of the commonly used ‘surgical’ methods where undesired parts of the skin need to be painstakingly replaced one by one with bits of the appropriate color.
FoksMarx recolorLE is a feature reduced free version of the commercial recolorST plugin filter. recolorLE uses the same color matching technology as the fully featured recolorST plugin. While it lacks some of the advanced features like dual palette processing it still is a fully functional plugin filter that can be used freely for both private and professional purposes.
Pricing and Availablility
recolorST is affordably priced at EUR 24 while recolorLE is distributed as unrestricted freeware. Both plugins are exclusively available by electronic download from the manufacturers website www.foksmarks.com.
recolorST and recolorLE can be seamlessly integrated within a great number of compatible host applications including Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro, PhotoPaint, PhotoPlus, and PhotoImpact.
