Digital Film Tools Ships Ozone for PhotoshopPlugin offers luminance-based color manipulation
Ozone uses a system that the company refers to as "the Digital Zone System." Essentially, the software reads the luminance values--as well as R, G, B, C, M and Y--in an image and divides them into 11 separate zones using proprietary "image slicing" algorithms. (Each zone in the system is twice as bright as the preceding zone.) Then the user can adjust each zone independently for color and brightness. The software works in RGB, CMYK, Lab and grayscale color spaces.
Ozone is available for Macintosh (including OS X) and Windows systems equipped with Photoshop 5.0 or higher. It sells for an introductory price of $50. For more information, visit http://www.digitalfilmtoools.com.
