This is a program that will enhance colors and correct hues in photos, such as those that are found online.

Many people use this program with Photoshop to correct some of the issues that are seen with colors, such as the contrast or the brightness. The program is simple to use as all you have to do is find the filter menu. There is a long window of tools on the side of the screen that you can use with the pictures that you have online. The color effects can be used with your own downloaded pictures or images you find online that you enjoy looking at, such as those that you see on retail stores. You can adjust the colors to get a true look at what the image would be like in the home or what the people in the picture look like in a natural setting.

There are several types of pictures that you can work with, such as landscapes bringing out the beauty of the trees and plants, or special events where you might want to get the glimmer of light or the twinkle in someone's eye. These are only a few of the special effects that you can achieve with the program. Adjust the shine in your pictures so that they don't shimmer in the wrong areas or work with the saturation so that the colors blend well together instead of some areas too dark and others too light. The program gives you an opportunity to bring natural hues back to images, giving them the emotions that are seen when the picture is taken.
