Shapiro Consulting has announced its new Photoshop plugin for Mac OS 9/X, which will ship next month. It can perform color changes without time-consuming masks and features 16-bit per component internal processing--even on 8-bit images. Users can "make near perfect selections based on the HSL components of the image and then very accurately adjust the HSV and RGB/CMYK components of that selection. Asiva's curves also allow for filter roll-offs so all effects appear completely natural and a built in Color Sampler Tool provides a good starting-point for setting the three curves."
