Fix perspective distortion
Add a vignette to your photos
Quickly paint out blemishes with the Spot-Heal tool
Transform the feel of an image with the Quick Color filter
Add text or captions to your images
Pixeluvo contains a full range of color transform filters, allowing you to quickly transform the look of an image.
Choose from a range of high quality presets in the Quick Color filter
Have complete control with the Curves and Levels filters
Adjust the color temperature
Adjust the color balance separately for shadows, midtones and highlights
Many other professional color filters
All the color correction filters can also be used in a non-destructive manner as adjustment layers, so you can come back and alter the settings at any time.
Pixeluvo contains a full high precision raw image processing pipeline.
Import raw files from all camera manufacturers
Have precise control over exposure, color, and tone values
Raw files are placed in their own layer type (indicated by a letter ‘R’ in the layer preview), and all settings remain fully editable.
Add other layers to your project, use adjustment layers and masks, and all the while keep coming back to fine tune the settings for raw conversion.
When you are totally happy with the settings you can convert the layer to an ordinary bitmap layer in order to paint directly onto it, or apply destructive filters to it.
Pixeluvo includes many powerful tools for editing your images. The Paintbrush tool comes with many high quality brush presets for simulating real media, and supports pressure sensitive graphics tablets for even better realism and control. With the various selection tools you can quickly isolate regions for further editing. Other tools include:
Layers and Masks
Using layers and masks can be an incredibly powerful way to build up complex images non-destructively.
Create unlimited layers and blend them together using one of the many blending modes
Use adjustment layers to keep color adjustments editable
Text layers also remain editable, so the text, fonts and styling can be altered at any point
Add a layer mask to any layer to control which areas should be visible
Create masks from selections and vice versa
