five different automatic methods for achieving perfectresults with photos that have a wide range of different color
problems. Even more powerful is the semi-automatic sample
area feature, which lets the user select a white or gray
image area for correcting the color cast. Additionally there
are twelve different Split View modes that let
you visually perform photo corrections with the help of color
or exposure stripes and grids that are laid over the image.

three sliders adjustable to five different color models, a color
picker, a color dialog and a lightness balance button. You can

ColorWasher was developed because of the lack of color correction tools that combine precision, speed and ease of use. Many available tools have insufficient automatic modes, don't manage to remove color casts completely or demand expert knowledge to be used properly. Some even make photos look worse or seduce the user to overdo the correction. ColorWasher is the first tool that performs 100% precise corrections within seconds and is flexible as well as very easy to use. It also guides the user with interactive comments and explanations. Additionally ColorWasher makes it very hard for inexperienced people to unintentionally apply destructive corrections. Best of all, ColorWasher saves you precious time when correcting photos and is available for an affordable price.
ColorWasher 2 offers a greatly improved color and exposure correction and a vast amount of other new features and improvements. Color casts are better removed from the shadows, red and orange casts are treated more effectively and the automatic exposure fixing works much more reliable and effective. Better results on more difficult photos can be achieved with a second sample area and the new sliders for adjusting the color correction in the highlight and shadow areas.
ColorWasher now supports 16bit images, processes huge images with little RAM and renders faster. Its dialog is resizable and tab sheets with many new features were added. The new saturation feature lets you adjust the image with the help of 10 different saturation methods and the new Histo tab displays 10 histogram types in four different styles. The new Log Settings feature uses the image name to automatically save preset files that can later be automatically applied when processing the same image again. Other improvements include Contrast Boost option, highlight and shadow contrast sliders, exposure correction in EV units, a Multiple option for mirroring the split views, color cast statistics, identification of blown highlights, selections display in the preview and preference settings among many others.
