Leading colour management specialist Colour Confidence have today announced the launch of a new monitor calibration and colour correction software package, the Pantone huey and PhotoTune Bundle. Retailing at just £90 including VAT, the bundle combines the best-selling huey monitor calibrator with OnOne’s PhotoTune – an Adobe Photoshop and Elements plug-in, designed specifically for photographers, creating an excellent value and user-friendly solution.
Utilising patented ColorTune technology, PhotoTune software simplifies the time-consuming process of colour correction, offering accurate colour in as little as 15 seconds. A six-step Colour Wizard presents the user with a choice of two corrected images at each stage of the correction process; the user simply picks the image they are happiest with until a final, most accurate image is reached. Another key feature of the software is SkinTune technology, designed to allow intricate adjustments within a small range of colours; skin tones representing less than 1% of all available colours according to PhotoTune analysis.
“The Pantone huey and PhotoTune Bundle has been created with accuracy and usability very much in mind”, comments Geoffrey Clements, Managing Director of Colour Confidence. “The combination of the two products makes perfect sense; any image adjustments, no matter how carefully made, can be rendered useless if you are working with an uncalibrated monitor. The huey delivers accurate on-screen colour in as little as three minutes, so combining this with the time-saving features of PhotoTune is an excellent way for photographers to maximise their productivity, without compromising on the quality or accuracy of their work”.
Colour Confidence will be showcasing the Pantone huey and PhotoTune Bundle at Focus on Imaging, Europe’s largest annual digital imaging show, at the Birmingham NEC from 24th – 27th February. The event is an ideal opportunity for photographers from amateur to professional to see demonstrations of key solutions and get face-to-face colour management advice from the company’s colour experts.
