Color Mechanic is a selective color correction plug-in for Adobe Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. What makes Color Mechanic so powerful is that it lets you change one or more colors in an image without changing any other colors in the image and without the painstaking work of selecting the parts of the image you want to change. This type of selective color correction is both easier to use and more powerful than conventional color balancing or filtration techniques that simply apply a uniform correction to the entire image or give you a few sliders to adjust.
What's new in version 2.0
Native support for Intel Macs:
Native support for Intel processors and Photoshop CS3 The Mac version of Color Mechanic Pro now runs under Intel processors without emulation, making it fully compatible with Photoshop CS3. Color Mechanic Pro also still works with PowerPC processors and earlier versions of Photoshop.
Edit Control Point Settings Manually:
You can now set RGB/CMYK values explicitly. This allows you to match colors exactly. The function is accessed by right-clicking (Option-click on the Mac) on a control point in a color hexagon and choosing 'Edit Control Point Settings Manually'. Selecting this item displays a new dialog box that lets you enter numeric values for the start color, end color, and brightness change for the selected control point. You can also set either the start or the end color to PhotoshopÃ??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¢s foreground or background colors.
Readouts from color hexagons:
Passing the cursor over either of the color hexagons now displays the corresponding colors in the RGB (or CMYK) readouts.
Standard version is no longer available:
We no longer sell a standard version of Color Mechanic - only the Pro version.
