I recently purchased both ColorWasher and FocalBlade and just wanted to say thanks for a couple of great products. I have used / purchased almost every sharpening tool on the market and FocalBlade gives me the best results, surpasing products costing more and products that take much longer for my CPU to process. Especially good is the "print" option. Viewed on the screen, initially I thought it was too sharp, but when put to the test and printing the exact same picture that I had used other products on, FocalBlade was the clear winner. The prints came alive!
As good as FocalBlade is, ColorWasher is even better. Being able to select an area and have it auto compute the color adjustment is fantastic. I recently took some pictures of a live band, if you haven't tried this it is absolutely the most difficult lighting imaginable. Using the combination of FocalBlade and ColorWasher, I was able to get some stunning results out of pictures that would otherwise have been deleted.
My only recommendation would be to add a Color Temperature adjustment/slider in ColorWasher, similiar to the white balance in RAW processing. Make it something like 2000K to 10000K in increments of 100. Would be great for finetuning the colorbalance on .jpg files.
Thanks again for the great products. Am looking forward to the next versions and hopefully when PS CS comes out it will support more 16 bit operations so ColorWasher will work in 16 bit.
