Automatic Color Correction

PhotoEQ automatic color correction in action

Fix white balance, exposure, dynamics and contrast problems automatically

Automatic color correction fixes color balance, exposure and contrast problems automatically in single step. Automatic color correction uses separate layers for white balance, exposure and contrast adjustments. Layer based solution gives you a freedom to tune all color correction adjustments as you want.

Automatic color correction is enabled by default for new images. You can disable this feature by switching off "Automatic White Balance" / "Automatic Exposure / Contrast" and then locking "AUTOMATIC COLOR CORRECTION TOOLS". If you disable automatic corrections you can still adjust white balance, exposure, contrast and correction intensity settings manually.
