ONLINE TRAINING CENTER
I installed Windows 8 on my laptop yesterday, an upgrade from Win 7. The process went smoothly with no significant problems. I will write more about the process in an upcoming post. The main reason I upgraded was to make sure all of the Windows versions of PictoColor Software ran without a problem. The short answer is they do.
I first checked out the standalone apps, CorrectPhoto Editor and iCorrect EditLab ProApp 6.0, and they launched and functioned as expected. Next, using Photoshop CS5 (32 & 64 bit) I tested iCorrect OneClick 2.0 (only available at Amazon.com), iCorrect Portrait 2.0, and iCorrect EditLab Pro 6.0 plug-ins and they all worked as well.
Make sure you run the Windows 8-Upgrade Assistant application to check for any issues you may have before beginning the Win 8 installation. It is a good time to uninstall any applications that are not compatible or that you aren’t using anymore. Might as well do a little cleanup. The Win 8 installation process will preserve all of the compatible apps and files and move them to the new OS so you will be ready to go when the installation is complete. So far so good.
We just published a new overview tutorial on YouTube describing the iCorrect EditLab Pro color correction process. This tutorial shows how easy it is to professionally color correct photos in Photoshop with the EditLab Plug-in or in Lightroom with the standalone app, iCorrect EditLab ProApp.

What is OneClick Color Technology?
OneClick Color Technology, the foundation of iCorrect OneClick Photoshop Plug-in, is based on Pictographics award winning Color Edit technology used in iCorrect EditLab Pro plug-in and iCorrect EditLab ProApp stand alone application. OneClick is, in fact, a “hardwired version” of EditLab Pro’s SmartColor Wizard configured to simplify color correction of photos to a single click and serve as an entry level to PictoColor’s advanced color correction software. There is a simple way to configure EditLab’s SmartColor Preference Settings so that it acts just like OneClick. A new EditLab tutorial will lead you through the process.
EditLab Pro (both the plug-in and stand alone versions) Settings for OneClick SmartColor Operation
If you already have iCorrect EditLab Pro Plug-in or ProApp stand alone you might want to try the OneClick operation to see how it improves your color workflow. If you don’t you can download the demo version. If you are a OneClick user you can purchase the Upgrade version of iCorrect EditLab Pro.
A few OneClick customers have been using EditLab Pro with the OneClick settings and they said that the OneClick results are the same. And, they have fallen in love with EditLab. Here is what one customer told us.
“I think knowing the background of how 1Click was developed from EditLab gave me an insight of how powerful Edit Lab is. Knowing this I can use it like 1Click or I can use further controls within EditLab. I believe that I am becoming a convert in using EditLab.” Jesse B. Fair Oaks, CA, a long time user of OneClick plug-in.
We received this question from a prospect in Malaysia today so I thought I would share my answer. I recommended iCorrect EditLab technology, either iCorrect EditLab Pro Photoshop Plug-in or iCorrect EditLab ProApp Stand Alone Application that is also compatible with Lightroom. If he used both Photoshop and Lightroom I recommended iCorrect EditLab Pro PowerSuite which includes both at a special bundle price.
The reasons behind this recommendation are color accuracy and speed. Wedding photographers need both accurate color and they need the color correction process to be fast and easy. When you take thousands of shots at a wedding you don’t want to spend hours and hours sitting at the computer color correcting photos. iCorrect EditLab Pro has been a favorite of wedding photographers for many years because of the ease of making the color right and the productivity features in both the plug-in and stand alone. Historically, Photoshop was the primary program used to process photos and, hence, the plug-in version was the preferred option. Now, however, with so many photographers shooting in RAW and using Lightroom to organize and edit the photos the stand alone version is the preferred choice. The ProcessQ function in EditLab ProApp really speeds up the process.
I also directed the prospect to PictoColor’s Learning Center where there are videos and tutorial showing how to use the EditLab color correction technology in both Photoshop and Lightroom and, specifically, how EditLab can streamline your RAW color workflow.
So, if you are a wedding photgrapher with thousands of photos to correct you should take a look at how iCorrect EditLab Pro Technology can Streamline your Color Workflow in both Photoshop and Lightroom.

When all Else Fails–Read the Instructions
Why is it that most of us don’t take the time to read User Guides and manuals before jumping into a new software application? I certainly don’t have the answer because I do the same thing. Sometimes I wonder why be bother to create a User Guide in the first place. Be that as it may, PictoColor has tried to make it as easy as possible to learn how to use our products effectively. Each iCorrect product (except OneClick) has an extensive User Guide and built in Help functions design to help the user streamline the color correction work flow. We just completed a new video tutorial of iCorrect EditLab ProApp which summarizes the User Guide and Quick Help functions included with the application.
You can find all of the recently produced iCorrect color correction software tutorial videos on our website in the learning center, www.pictocolor.com/learning.htm or at http://www.pictocolor.com/Tutorials/video_tutorials.htm.
