PhotoKit is invoked using a simple dialog box that calls up the PhotoKit tool sets. This allows the user to select the desired image effect which is then automatically applied to the image as a layer, so the original data remains untouched and the user can tweak adjustments further by manipulating layer opacity or painting on the layer mask. What’s more, PhotoKit’s effects can be applied to all visible layers, so you can “stack” multiple effects for varied results.
PhotoKit includes traditional effects like warming and cooling filters, dodging, burning, contrast masks, exposure correction, shadow and highlight corrections; color the grayscale conversions; black and white toning effects; film grain simulation, diffusion, soft-edged vignettes and much more.
PhotoKit itself utilizes Photoshop’s own Automate API to function. This allows it to do more than it could as a Photoshop Filter or Action, according to the developer. PhotoKit is Actionable, as well, so you can program it to work with your own Actions or Batch Processes if you wish.
Available as a seven-day operational demo version, PhotoKit costs US$49.95.
